Why Choose New Construction?

Modern floorplans

Craving an open-concept floorplan, a spacious primary suite, and tons of on-trend features or upgrades? When you buy new construction, your home will be custom-tailored for modern living, and you might even get to choose exactly what your space looks like. Be sure to ask your builder about available layouts and customizations!

New appliances

Want to know one of the biggest perks of buying new construction? Everything's new! That means you won't have to worry about updating appliances or making any major repairs—everything is quite literally handled for you.

Energy-efficient features

Many new homes come standard with green certifications, including energy-efficient lighting and more effective insulation. Even if you don't spend extra on any green upgrades, your home will probably will be more efficient than an older house—and that can help you save some serious cash over time.

Builder-backed warranties

When you buy a new construction home, you won't have to worry about repairs for a while. But if something does go wrong, it'll likely be covered by a warranty. If your home is still under warranty, the builder will be responsible for making major repairs or fixing any defects.

Customizable options

Building a home is an exciting journey—and you'll also get to choose all the details yourself. Be sure to ask your builder about potential upgrades, as well as finishes, trims, and other add-ons. Depending on your floorplan, you might even be able to add an extra room or make modifications based on your specific needs.
