New vs. Used (and Abused): 9 Big Benefits of New Homes

It’s a question we hear from most of our customers:  Why should I build a new home instead of buying a used home already on the market? The classic “New vs. Used” concern is nothing new, and we completely understand and respect the decision buyers need to make. And yes, we’re biased… but we have some facts and real world observations that back up our position.

In fact, we’ve got a whole page that explains the six big reasons why building a new home makes more sense than buying a used home. From location to warranty to customized selections, it gives a great run down of the main perks you enjoy when building a home from the ground up.

Today, however, we’re highlighting the more in your face examples we hear most often from customers who have chosen to move out of their older home and into a new, customized home planned out and built just for them. A home where everything’s new, everything’s fresh and everything’s hand-selected to match the homeowners’ style and taste.
