7 Reasons to Buy a New Home
A new home is an exciting milestone in your life. It is a foundation upon which you can raise a family, build memories, and live out other milestones. When it comes time to shop the home market, you might be tempted to look at a resell property because it seems the more affordable choice. Consider this though: A new home from Lennar can afford you greater and more benefits than a resell and still be yours at a great price. How is that possible? What are the benefits of a new home? Read on to discover why buying new is the better choice for you.
A new home is clean, safe and healthy. During uncertain times, a clean space, not previously lived in or occupied, means a lot to most buyers. Lennar has added extra cleaning and sanitation measures to ensure the safety and health of every customer. When you tour a model or complete your New Home Orientation, you can have peace of mind that the rooms and living space are clean and spotless.
A new home offers more room to grow and live. Previous home trends leaned towards smaller living spaces, but now you can own a home that has space for family, hobbies, hosting, working, and simply living day by day. A new home floorplan from Lennar can offer flex spaces that can be transformed into at-home offices, party rooms, private studios or workshops – whatever you like to serve your needs. Floorplans can also expand outside the home to include spacious backyards with covered patios, maybe an alfresco kitchen, to encourage flexible indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
A new Lennar home gives you the features you want at no extra cost to you. This is part of our signature Everything’s Included® approach to homebuilding. Our top interior design professionals are aware of today’s popular styles and finishes, of those features buyers most admire, and we include these items in every new home we build. These features can include but are not limited to stainless steel appliances, upgraded countertops and flooring, LED lighting, and a great deal more. Everything’s Included also means a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design in what is better known as The Connected Home by Lennar.
The Connected Home offers you a new home engineered and built to give you a superior Wi-Fi experience at home with no dead spots. This means you can stay connected with what matters when it matters most. Maybe you need to work from home, so you turn the flex space that came with your new home floorplan into an office. A better Wi-Fi connection allows you to connect, call, and converse with your business. Better still, every Connected Home comes with desirable new home technology, from video doorbells to smart door locks to smart thermostats and more. You can experience the Connected Home for yourself when you schedule a tour at one of our model homes.
A new home means everything inside and out is new. Resell properties often run you the risk of running into issues sooner than later. Sometimes the plumbing is timeworn, or appliances are less efficient, taking in more power for less output. These issues may lead to necessary renovations which can cause insurance coverage gaps. Sometimes buyers think a fixer-upper will be fun, but the truth is you need strong finances to support the costs. It would be better to buy a new home, with all its new ins and outs and features – never used, not worn out – so you can devote your time to other things like movie night or dinner with the family. Moreover, the money you might have spent on renovations can go towards your down payment and mortgage. Your wallet will thank you.
A new home is yours from the start. Instead of a resell property, which has the style and imprint of its previous occupants, you can make your new Lennar home an expression of yourself. Once you move in, you can decorate and stylize every inch of the home according to your likes and interests, whether that is modern minimalist, french countryside, shabby chic, or even nautical blues. It is yours, from start to finish, from build to close, your new home.
A new home is ready to view and tour whenever you like. Rather than wait for resell occupants to clean up and clear out so you can see their home, Lennar has ready-to-view models. Our Internet Sales Consultants (ISCs) can help you schedule a Self-Guided Tour, where you walk the model by yourself, or a tour with a New Home Consultant (NHC) who operates out of the community. Either option will afford you the opportunity to ask questions about the floorplan, design choices, included features, construction process, purchase process, and more.
