When it comes to purchasing new homes, you have so many great options. While both homes come with their share of good things, the one that generally has more pros than cons is purchasing a new home. This article will take the time to discuss 3 awesome reasons why you should purchase a new home instead of an older one.

Covered Under Warranty

If you decide to have a new home built, or move into a new home that has never been lived in, then you have the luxury of the one year warranty. This warranty covers the home for the first year that you live in it and allows you to have anything fixed during this year, free of charge. This is a huge comfort to most home buyers because they realize that their home will be covered, no matter what might go wrong. On the other hand, if an older home is purchased then it is sold in as-is condition, a lot of the time and you will be required to pay for any repairs or updates that the home needs. This can get very pricey very quickly and can be a big headache to most home buyers. 


When you purchase a home that is brand new or have one built and finished for you, then you have the luxury of knowing that everything in the home will be updated and new. All of the appliances, flooring, painting, countertops, and all other finish work will be new and match the current style. This not only means that everything in the home will look great visually, but it will also likely function properly because it is new. On top of this, your water heater, air conditioner, furnace, etc., will all be brand new, so you also won't have to worry about having to have these repaired or replaced any time soon. 

No One Has Lived In It

Moving into a home that someone else has lived in can be quite disgusting, especially if they were not very clean or if they had pets. This leaves behind stains and odors that can be difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of without a great deal of work. When you buy a new home, you are the first person to ever live in this home. So the only smell that you have to worry about is the new home smell.
