New Homes Offer More Benefits Than Ever

The top three reasons to buy a new home, as told by Dallas Builders Association.

Design Your Dream Home Your Way

Many home builders allow buyers to participate in the process of designing their property, which helps create a living space specifically tailored to the consumer’s tastes. New home buyers can often decide where their bathroom might go, choose their favorite type of flooring, or pick the color of the exterior paint. Buyers moving into a subdivision can sometimes even pick the lot they like best.

All New, Under Warranty

An older home likely has tired products that may soon need replacing. Your new home, and the products that comprise it, are brand new. The components of your new home will feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement. Texas law requires homes to be constructed in a good and workmanlike manner. In furtherance of this requirement, builders offer an express home warranty that explains how your home will perform. Express warranties offer coverage for one year of workmanship, two years for systems and 10 years for major structural issues.

Energy and Cost Savings

New homes are constructed to the most advanced building codes. Energy codes, in particular, have become much more stringent in recent years, meaning that all new homes are designed with resource efficiency in mind. Newly built homes are designed to be about 15-30 percent more efficient than typical existing homes. Many builders participate in above-code programs such as Green Built Texas.
