Have you ever driven by a gorgeous house with a sign that said “newly constructed home” and wondered what it must be like to be the first person to live in that beautiful home?


Well, the experience of becoming a first-owner of a newly constructed house can be very exciting. Here are the benefits of buying a newly constructed home that you should know:

Design your dream home

Buying a newly constructed home gives you a lot of flexibility to design the home to suit your personality.


You don’t have to get rid of old fixtures and fittings, dreary wallpapers, and color paints, which can cost extra time and money.


You can select your favorite color scheme, add new furniture, and renovate the property to suit your personality without any hassle.


Modern floor plan

You cannot replicate the experience of living in a newly constructed home by renovating an old-style property that has tiny rooms and narrow spaces.


Newly constructed homes come with modern floor plans. It means you can expect spacious living rooms, open-style kitchen, and tall ceilings that give a new dimension to their property.

New Home Warranty

A newly constructed home comes with a warranty. The builder is liable to pay for any issue during the warranty period.

The most important components of the home, like electrical systems, HVAC, heating, and plumbing, are covered under warranty.


Therefore, you don’t have to foot the bill for repair and maintenance costs, saving you potentially thousands of dollars.


High-Rated Energy Efficiency

In light of increased environmental awareness, modern homes are designed to be energy-efficient.


The advanced constructed materials and insulation keep newly constructed homes cool during summers and warm during winters, which can help save energy costs.


The new energy-efficient appliances and HVAC provide further cost savings.


Move-In Ready

A newly constructed home is move-in ready, which makes it an ideal option for buyers who are on a strict schedule.

Most modern homes come with the latest appliances—like a refrigerator, stove, washer, and dryer—already installed.

From electricity work to plumbing, you will find everything up-to-date, allowing you to pack your bags and move in without any delay.

Did you finally find your dream home in Edmonton? Congratulations! Browsing through all those property listings has finally paid off.


But before you close the deal, make sure you make sure you have a complete home inspection done to avoid unexpected problems later on.


Here are five reasons not to skip a home inspection:

Ensure safety

A home inspection service can help identify potential safety hazards like invisible airborne toxins, carbon monoxide, and mold infestation.


Skipping home inspection can put you and your family at risk of breathing in dangerous particles and gases, which can lead to the development of severe health problems. 


If the home inspection report mentions any of these hazards, you must withdraw your buying offer and look for other properties.

Save money

Some people think that home inspections are unnecessary expenses, but that’s not true at all. A quality home inspection can save you thousands of dollars in the long run.


Home inspectors diagnose the current condition of the home structure and estimated useful life of components to help you learn about the actual condition of the property.


A home inspection report helps you learn about repairs and maintenance requirements. If a property needs extensive work, you may consider backing out of the offer.

 


Meet compliance

A home inspection service will help reveal any unlawful additions or installations made in the home, for instance, a basement without a legal permit.


Buying a home with additions that don’t meet legal compliance can affect the value of your home and become your financial problem to fix.


Moreover, it will also affect your home insurance and tax rates. A home inspection report will help you learn about any illegal additions in advance to prevent compliance issues.

Home Insurance

Many home insurance providers require a residential property to fulfil certain conditions to approve a homeowner’s insurance.


If the residential property that you want to purchase wasn’t inspected recently, you might require a 4-point inspection to qualify for a standard policy.


Inspections allow insurers to estimate a property’s coverage requirements. Your home inspection report will fulfil their criteria and help you secure a policy without any hassle.

Negotiate a better price

The home inspection report allows you to appraise the property on its merits and allows you to negotiate a lower price.

You can request the seller to reduce the price to account for pre-existing repairs expense to reflect the fair value of the property. On the other hand, you can ask them to get the repairs done.


More often than not, sellers agree to reduce the price or at least meet you halfway, which can save you thousands of dollars.
