New-Construction or an Existing Home — What’s Right For You?

When you’re ready to buy a home, especially if it’s your first, one of the biggest questions you face is, “Should I buy new or used?” It’s a good question — and an important decision you’ll have to make. Whether you’re buying your first home, a second home, or a retirement home, choosing a new one over an existing or used home is a smart move.

There are many reasons why it makes sense to buy new instead of buying used. We’re going to share a few of them with you here — and then we’ll follow up with Part Two in another blog post.

A New Home Means No Old Problems

Why get stuck with someone else’s used home — including their old problems and the potential for repairs and additional costs? A new home is yours and yours alone. You won’t have to worry about existing, potential, or hidden problems, or additional costs for repairs.
Plus, a new home usually comes with some kind of protection. Here at Colony Reserve, our homes come with a one-year warranty on everything inside your new home, and a 10-year structural warranty on everything else.

Hello, 1990 Called. It Wants Its Old Home Design Back…

One of the exciting things about buying a new home is that everything is brand new, including the design of the home itself, the cooling/heating system, the building materials used, and the fixtures and appliances. You don’t end up settling with someone else’s old style and outdated features, or having to spend more money to update everything.
At Colony Reserve, our townhomes showcase a modern design and come equipped with luxurious standard features. Your gourmet kitchen includes designer cabinetry, stainless steel GE appliances, and rich granite countertops.
Your spacious master suite has oversized his and hers walk-in closets, a cozy bay window perfect for a sitting area, opulent coffered ceilings, and a spa-inspired bathroom with cultured marble double vanities, a Roman tub and separate shower. All of our townhomes also offer a full-size GE washer and dryer conveniently located on the second floor. (Try finding THAT in an older home!)
