When people visit our communities in search of a new Atlanta home, they often are considering many choices that are simply “new to them,” comparing both new construction and resale homes. We’ve talked with our buyers, reviewed industry research and added our own knowledge of the way we do things to come up with three great reasons to buy a new home rather than used.
A New Home Is Less Expensive to Own
When you purchase a new home, there’s no need for an extra investment of time or money in remodeling, painting, making repairs or sprucing up the lawn. The need for regular HVAC, appliance and roof repairs are years or even decades away. At The Providence Group, we also provide peace of mind with our StrucSure Home Buyers Warranty Program. As part of this program, our One Year Workmanship Warranty ensures we will repair or replace defective materials and/or workmanship as outlined in the booklet you’ll receive.
You will save on energy costs with a new home, too. Updated construction processes and materials mean new homes are likely to be better insulated and to better control outside air and water infiltration. At The Providence Group, we use Energy Star rated appliances, 14 Seer HVAC, Low-E Glass in all windows and LP Tech Shield Roofs to make our homes more energy-efficient, and we bring in third-party inspectors to make sure we’re doing it right.
New Home Designs Are Comfortable and Livable
Over the years, architects and builders have gotten better at using space efficiently to optimize living and storage areas. New homes typically feature more closet space, more usable square footage and higher ceilings than existing homes. You’re more likely to find an open floor plan in a new home and you won’t need to spend extra time or money knocking down walls to make it happen.
You’ll also feel more comfortable in your new home because you’ll personally select finishes, fixtures and appliances. At The Providence Group, you’ll spend several hours with one of our professional designers in our newly-opened, award-winning Design Studio. Guided by professional expertise, you’ll make the interior design choices that create a comfortable home for your tastes and lifestyle.
Enjoy A Higher Quality of Life in a New Home
A new home is ready to live and entertain in right away. You’ll avoid the cost and stress of renovations so you can spend more time and money on things you love. You’ll simply have a shorter to-do list with a new home. In fact, many homes by The Providence Group are created to be low maintenance over the long term with included lawn care, even for single-family homes. Our exteriors are designed for easy upkeep as well.
And what will you do with this extra time? New homes are likely to be in new communities, where developers usually include amenities that may range from manicured sidewalks and greenspaces to fenced-in dog parks, swimming pools, recreational opportunities and community gathering areas with pavilions and firepits.
For many of our homebuyers, the best part of having is a new home is that it is, well, just new. It’s their own space to build their own story from scratch.
At The Providence Group, we understand the importance of selecting and creating a home that you will love now and for years to come. The ability to Make Space for Life is just one of many reasons to buy new, and especially to buy new with us. To see more, click HERE.
