Why Buy New Construction?

Friday, July 14, 2017


Whether you're buying your first home or upgrading to a new home, you should consider new construction as part of your new home search. The new construction market is booming in the Des Moines area. In June, the number of new construcgtion homes in the area was up 14.7% from June 2016! That means there are plenty of options in all different locations, price ranges and styles! Here are 5 advantages to buying a new home. 

Even the most well maintained resale home will probably need a little bit of work, whether it’s touch-up paint, new carpet, or something else. WIth a brand new home, everything is new and clean, so there aren’t projects you need to worry about once you move in!


New homes have all the updated features like better insulation and windows and high-efficiency appliances. Along with being better for the environment, an energy-efficient home will probably mean lower utility bills.


Nothing will look dated in your brand new home. Most new construction homes feature design elements that people are looking for like open floor plans, large master bathrooms, and updated colors and materials throughout.


Even if you’re purchasing a new home that’s already built, you might still have the option to choose your own paint colors, finishes, cabinets and more!


With a new construction home, everything is up to code and you don't need to worry about things like lead pipes and asbestos.
