First time home buyers should consider building a new home, instead of purchasing an older one. You might find that building a new starter home is priced similarly to purchasing a previously owned home. While each option has pros and cons, Silvercliff Homes in Edmonton shares the benefits of building your first home from the ground up:
You get to choose almost everything!
While many starter homes are built according to a pre-determined floor-plan, you have so many options! You can construct it to meet your specific needs and choose all the finishing things too. Build a mudroom in the back porch, choose an open concept floor plan, add a bathroom in the basement – the choice is yours.
Plus, you’ll get to pick everything from the flooring, countertops, backsplash, bathroom tile, wall colour and trim. When you purchase an older home, those things have been chosen for you. Then you have to do a home renovation to make the home more suitable to your taste and needs.
You won’t have to worry about things falling apart.
It’s typical for a first-time home buyer to experience some unexpected, and expensive, issues when they first move into the house. Faulty wiring, broken plumbing, older appliances on the fritz are all things you might have to deal with in an older home. In your brand-new starter home, you get a worry-free period.
Everything is brand new, so it will be a while before it starts to wear out and break. If something does go wrong, it’s likely covered under a warranty and will be remedied without much stress on your end. After you’ve invested heavily in purchasing your new home, the last thing you want to worry about is unexpected repair costs.
You can choose where you want the home built.
There are many lots available for purchase in and around the city. If you’re building a new home, you can tour around neighbourhoods and decide which works best for you. You can purchase a lot in a newer neighbourhood and enjoy brand-new amenities nearby. Or if you prefer, you can purchase a lot in a mature neighbourhood and invest in an infill starter home. This gives you access to more central areas in the city and allows you to use existing infrastructure. Infill housing is a healthy way for cities to grow. Learn more about infill housing in Edmonton.
