For many people, walking into a home where everything is brand new can make for a great feeling. With fresh and clean flooring and walls – the home can be like a blank canvas just waiting for your personal touches. And, brand new appliances and systems typically mean that, even if there is an issue, most or all of the cost to repair will be covered under warranty. There are two ways that you can attain a new home interior – these include purchasing (or even going through the building process of) a newly constructed residence, or by buying an already-constructed home that has been fully renovated.
So, if you’re in the market for newer things, which of these options might fit you the best?
The answer is that it depends.
For example, if you like the idea of a clean and new interior, but you are also hoping for established landscaping and an already long-standing community, then going the route of an older (or semi-older) structure could be your best bet.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a newer community, along with both amenities and a home structure that is all brand new, then choosing a newly built residence will not only provide you with what you’re seeking, but depending on just how much control you want over your surroundings, you may even be able to make decisions about the floorplan, square footage, and placement of your trees and front walk.
In either case, it can be beneficial to work with an experienced real estate agent on your side. Doing so can put you in the driver’s seat in terms of negotiating price, as well as other factors such as closing date and / or inclusion of amenities.
