New vs. Used
Top 5 Reasons for Choosing a New Construction Home with StyleCraft
Perhaps you purchased your first new construction home a few moves ago — and you never looked back. Or maybe this is your first time considering a new construction home, and you’re still a little uncertain about the path ahead.
Either way, as far as we’re concerned, you’ve made the smart choice. As a homebuilder, we’re obviously partial to new construction. But we believe that after we share our Top 5 Reasons for Choosing a New-Construction Home, you’ll see that the choice is clear.
You’re in Control
Buying a new construction home puts homebuyers in the driver’s seat from start to finish. At the beginning of your homebuilding experience, you’ll get your pick of community locations, homesites, and floor plans. After that comes selecting structural, interior, and exterior options that reflect your unique taste. And when you have a hand in home design, you’ll always feel right at home. With the typical resale home purchase, those first several months or even years are often focused on updating everything from the ‘80s-era kitchen to the rotted-out deck. With new construction, they won’t know you by your name at the local home improvement store. Rather, you’ll be ready to Live Up without looking back from the moment you walk through the door the first time.
Resale homes come with plenty of known issues that you need to address — aging appliances, wall-to-wall carpeting in the bathroom, and a chimney that leans a little to the left. But what about those unknowns? You know, the surprises that pop up after closing, from leaky roofs to flooding basements? With a new-construction home, you know your home inside and out before it’s even built. Couple that with the confidence that your new home will adhere to superior, present day building codes. And then there’s this: no one has been putting wear and tear on the home for decades. Buying new construction means that the only surprises you’ll encounter are the good kind, such as reclaiming your weekends instead of checking off DIY home repairs.
So Much to Do. So Few To-Dos.
Remember that list of home projects we just mentioned — well, there is some upkeep that a new home alone cannot eliminate. Take lawn care and exterior maintenance, for example. That’s where StyleCraft comes in. In select communities (and all of our Freestyle communities), we do the heavy lifting to make sure homeowners have the best-looking lawn on the block. So what is there to do in your free time? Each StyleCraft community will ensure your spare time Lives Up, thanks to amenities including clubhouses, pools, tennis courts, community gardens, and more.
Here’s a scenario that never happens: a resale home comes outfitted with the latest in smart home technology. Sometimes, you’re fortunate if the doorbell rings and the door locks. But if you choose the right homebuilder, your new construction home can be ready to take on modern day routines without missing a beat. At StyleCraft, all of our homes come with LiveSmart, a suite of smart home features and functionality designed to elevate homeowners’ convenience, comfort, connectivity, and security. Specifically, it includes a Video Doorbell, Smart Lock, Smart Thermostat, and Home WiFi & Connectivity Hub. Together, these features make everyday living simply better in every way.
Total Peace of Mind
New construction homes are a lot like cars. They come with a warranty that helps you sleep soundly at night instead of worrying about the possibility of a structural defect or major system failure. But not all warranties are the same. At StyleCraft, we believe we’ve built the best Warranty program and team in the business. That’s because we put together an in-house team, meaning the people fixing your home in the unlikely event of a needed repair are the same ones who already know it inside and out.
The list of reasons to consider building a new-construction home with StyleCraft goes on and on. We hope this snapshot has revealed some advantages of building a home that make your homebuying decision an easy one.
