5 Reasons You Should Buy a New Construction Home vs. Resale

When you embark on a homebuying journey, there are numerous factors to consider. From the location you wish to settle in, to the features you desire to have in your home, this new adventure can come with many questions and decisions. One important decision you’ll need to make is whether you should purchase a new construction or a resale home. Read on to learn about the distinct advantages of buying new!

Desirable Layouts

Unlike resale homes, new construction properties are designed to fit modern lifestyles without buyers having to shell out thousands of dollars in renovations. As a result, you’ll find contemporary and aesthetically-pleasing floor plans that represent the best of present-day design trends. For example, open-concept layouts that offer a seamless connection throughout the home are especially attractive for maximizing your space and making entertaining a breeze. 

Save on Maintenance

By definition, a new construction home comes in turnkey condition, meaning you won’t have to worry about unforeseen costs to fix major issues, such as foundation problems or replacing an old roof. Additionally, with brand-new appliances and energy-efficient and eco-friendly features, you can spend less time stressing over repairs and monthly bills, and more time enjoying this exciting new chapter in your life. Even better, you’ll receive a warranty with a new construction home that will cover the expense of repairs and potential defects. From finding your dream home to stepping over that threshold, Trumark provides you with peace of mind every step of the way.

Community and Convenience 

Many new construction homes are located within master-planned communities, where you can experience a more connected way of living. Regardless of the neighborhood you choose, in a well-planned community designed with you in mind, you can enjoy easy access to on-site amenities, such as a pool, playground, parks, and even year-round community events. These inviting neighborhoods are where you can meet new friends and maintain an active lifestyle.

Reduced Uncertainty

Resale homes are often the center of bidding wars, where potential homebuyers go up against each other to try to secure the same property. This can escalate the sales price higher than the asking price and even tempt you to go over your budget to beat out other interested parties. When you work with Trumark’s Sales, Construction, and Customer Service teams, you can avoid this stress and uncertainty, and enjoy a seamless homebuying experience. 

Modern Features

When you buy a Trumark home, you can take advantage of several unique features to fit your lifestyle. For example, our TruFlex floor plans, such as those at Zest and Covina Bowl in Covina, give you more control over the layout of your home, whether you decide to add another secondary bedroom or multi-functional flex space for a dedicated fitness room.

Our homes also include energy-efficient features, such as those included at Jasper in Morgan Hill, an all-electric community with 101 solar townhomes, helping you save money on your monthly energy bills while reducing your carbon footprint.
