It's not uncommon for people to be attracted to what's shiny and new. Things that are brand spanking new look appealing and usually come with less to worry about. You don't have to worry about how previous owners treated it because you're the first. It's the same when buying a new home in Palm Desert. The main advantage to buying new homes is you don't have to replace roofs, wiring, plumbing or septic systems.
Operating costs are another advantage to newer homes. Since they're new, they're often equipped with state of the art efficient technology. They have the best insulations, Energy Star appliances, efficient heating and cooling systems and more. On top of it all, the energy efficiency standards may even earn you a tax credit. Additionally, all these brand new systems and things most likely have warranties. So, if you have to fix or replace something in the first few years, you most likely won't have to foot the bill.
You may be able to customize your home if you're buying it in its preconstruction phase. This means you get to choose paint colors, flooring and maybe even cabinets and appliances.
Another advantage to buying a new home is you know a new home is safe. You should always get your home inspected but you shouldn't have to worry about it either way. The builder is required to get the house up to code before it's ever built.
These are all great advantages to buying brand spanking new. If you'd like to start your search for new construction today, contact me anytime!
