IT CAN BE A TOUGH DECISION: should you buy a brand new home that you can customize, or choose one that's move-in ready? A new home definitely has its advantages.
A new home allows you to personalize the colours, the cabinets..sometimes a good builder will allow some lee way in the building plans as well. . You have the option to upgrade and choose your siding, flooring, cabinets, plumbing and electrical fixtures.
A new home is up-to-date with the latest codes/standards. The latest building codes, electrical and energy-efficiency standards will be applied.
A new home means lower maintance costs because everything is new and many items are covered by a warranty.
Dont forget about the Builder Warranty. A homebuilder's warranty is usually available in all provinces (except Nunavut and the Northwest Territories). This can be important if a major system such as plumbing or heating breaks down. (This warranty does not apply if you build the home yourself. )
You may even qualify for a rebate of part of the GST or HST on homes that cost less than $450,000. For more information about the GST New Housing Rebate program, visit the Canada Revenue Agency website at, http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca.
A brand-new community is one of the built-in benefits of many new homes. When families move in to a subdivision at the same time, they often form lasting bonds of friendship and neighborliness right away. Nobody is the "new kid on the block," and many home builders host community parties in new developments to help owners meet and connect.
Popular amenities like pools, walking trails and tennis and basketball courts offer additional opportunities for interaction among neighbors of all ages. Often new communities are comprised of home owners in the same stage of life, such as young families or active retirees, so neighbors can get a chance to know each other.
For some buyers, parking the car in a sparkling-clean garage or being the first to cook a dinner in a brand-new kitchen is part of the appeal of new construction. In addition, you won’t have to spend time stripping dated wallpaper or repainting to suit your own sense of style — creating your own home décor from the get-go!
The advantages of being the first owner extend to the outdoors. Instead of inheriting inconveniently or precariously placed trees, or having to tear up overgrown shrubs, or a misplaced garden, you can design and plant the lawn and garden you want.
Homes built in the 1960’s and earlier were wired much differently than houses today. Builders had no way of anticipating the invention of high-definition televisions, DVRs and computers that we enjoy today — and the very different electrical requirements they would introduce. New homes can accommodate advanced technologies like structured wiring, security systems and sophisticated lighting plans, and can be tailored to meet the individual home owner’s needs.
Anyone who has ever lived in an older home can also attest to the fact that there are never enough outlets, inside or out! Today, home builders plan for the increased number and type of electronics and appliances used by today’s families, so you can safely operate a wine cooler, Christmas lights and your laptop — and more.
