    The Benefits of Buying a Newer Home

    Our last blog highlighted some of the benefits of owning an older home. Now, let us look at why some people may choose to purchase a newer home instead. 

    Little Maintenance

    Newer homes don't generally require maintenance because everything about them is new and is expected to work and function properly. A new home appeals to homebuyers because they know they won't have to invest time or money into maintenance and repairs for quite a while. It's truly a luxury to not have to worry about a new roof or water heater for about 15 years at a time. It's much nicer to only worry about minimal maintenance tasks such as needing to change a light bulb.

    Modern Amenities

    Have you ever lived in a home without a dishwasher? If so, you can appreciate homes with modern amenities such as new dishwashers, refrigerators, microwaves, etc. Other modern amenities in newer homes include master baths, workout rooms and home theaters with built in sound systems. These types of rooms simply weren't considered as room options when older homes were built.

    Energy Efficient

    Newer homes can feature an array of energy efficient features including solar panels, heated floors, heated garages, spray foam insulation and energy efficient appliances and windows.

    The "New" Factor 

    There's nothing quite like something that's new. The feeling that you get when you get a new house perhaps supersedes the feeling that you get for all other things that are new. Houses are one of the biggest investments that a person will ever make and are they are meaningful places that will hold lifelong memories. Someone knowing that their memories will be the first in a home makes it all the more special. Another benefit of a new home is that it's clean and you can rest assured that there will be no lingering orders from previous owners.

      The Benefits of Buying an Older Home

      It's said that new is better. Do you agree?

      Viewers of the television show This Old House may disagree as well as the many others that enjoy watching shows focused on the renovations of older homes. Some people enjoy living in older homes, too. Let's looks at some reasons as to why someone may prefer to buy an older home versus a newer one: 

      Repairs Will Increase Home Value

      Older homes are usually in need of a new roof, HVAC system, water heaters and other updates. If you invest in an older home to make these improvements, it will increase its value.

      Character

      Custom stained class, carved wood details, crown molding and arched doorways are what gives older homes character. These days, it's rare to find such beautiful craftsmanship in newer homes.

      Purchase Price

      Older homes are generally more affordable than newer homes.

      Larger Yard

      Older homes were generally built on larger lots because land was more affordable in the past. Most older homes have retained their original lot sizes, which provide substantial yard space.

      Landscaping 

      Many older homes feature beautiful landscaping that has been established since the homes were built, which can't be replicated on newer properties. Hundred year old trees and bushes surrounding older homes are truly special features that add to a home's character, charm, and uniqueness.

      Convenient Location 

      Older homes are generally located in areas that are close to dining, shopping and parks.
