The Benefits of Buying a New Home

However, we know all too well that going with a builder offers a wealth of benefits. Being able to hand select every detail of the new home is only one of the great benefits that comes with building a new home.

No Need for Upgrading or Remodeling

When you start your search for a pre-existing home the first thing you might notice is that most homes are outdated. Bathrooms and kitchens can even be eyesores. Floorplans may be closed off and the home might not have a great flow the way updated homes offer. When you decide to hire a new home builder you can skip the eyesores and remodeling. This is especially true when you are given the ability to choose tile, colors, details, and amenities for the home.

A More Energy Efficient Home

When you choose the right new home builder you can be sure that the home will be more energy efficient than a pre-existing home. With better building practices and materials, energy star appliances, energy efficient windows, tankless water heaters, and many other features you can be sure of this fact. Most energy efficient homeowners save hundreds of dollars each year when they go with a newly built home.

A Warranty You Can Trust

Pre-existing homes come with unexpected quirks. You might buy a home in the winter, then come rainy season find out that you got a few free leaks with the house. However, when you go with a new build any kind of problem you face will be handled by one or more warranties that come with the house. Instead of shelling out your own cash to cover the repairs it will be taken care of by the builder or manufacturer of a specific items.

New Home Builders Offer Better Neighborhoods

Buying a new home often means finding the right new development on the side of town you want to live in. New neighborhoods offer conveniently placed parks, and typically lower crime rates. You and your neighbors will also be in similar stages of life as most of the homes will be built around the same time period.

Working with Home Builders to Build Your Dream Home

couple sitting inside a drawn out outline of a simple houseDream homes are on almost everyone’s list of goals. We all have our own terms for them as well; from swimming pools to three-car garages for our racecars, we have many (great) ideas. The best way to bring these ideas to life? Work with home builders. Home builders from Palo Verde Homes can help you design the home of your dreams. Here are some tips to ensure your home is built in the best way possible.

Tip #1: Work with Flexible Home Builders

You have ideas, and you want to work with home builders who will listen and work with your ideas. When we’re building our dream home, the last thing we want to hear is “no.” Working with flexible home builders will not only allow you the expert knowledge and skills you need to build your home, you’ll also have the freedom to design the home you want.

Tip #2: Go Green

Nowadays, there are many ways you can go green–one of them is the way we build our homes. When you custom build your home, you can opt to have greener materials and technology used to make your home more energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Our homes at Palo Verde Homes are energy efficient and include Energy Star rated features. This means your home will use less energy when heating and cooling the space. Living a greener, more sustainable life is a great way to give back to Mother Nature, and our homes help you do just that!

Tip #3: Have a Plan

Your best bet for having things go smoothly is to have a plan. While you’re not expected to completely plan or design your home, knowing how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need, how big of a lot you plan to purchase, and what kind of features and amenities you want to have in your home can help significantly. You wouldn’t want to start a plan half of the way through building your home, would you? Most likely not! If you did, it would be rather difficult getting everything in place. With a plan, you don’t have to worry about issues popping up later on because you and the home builders didn’t plan it out early on enough.
