Exploring New Builds vs. Buying Resale

Exploring New Builds vs. Buying Resale

Building a new home or buying a resale is a significant decision for anyone. Both options come with their own set of advantages and considerations. For those contemplating these choices, Fischer Homes offers valuable insights into why building a new home is a more advantageous route for many.

Warranties: A key advantage of new HOME construction 

One of the primary benefits of building a new home with Fischer Homes is the peace of mind that comes with warranties. New homes are typically accompanied by a variety of warranties covering everything from appliances to structural integrity. This means that any issues that arise post-construction are often covered, saving homeowners from unexpected repair costs. Fischer Homes offers a one-year home warranty for any new build, giving you the peace of mind you need for your new dream home.

In contrast, resale homes may offer very limited or no warranty, potentially leading to significant out-of-pocket expenses for repairs.

Fresh new designs & floorplan layouts

Another compelling reason to choose new home construction is the opportunity to select from fresh, modern designs and floorplan layouts. Fischer Homes prides itself on offering a wide range of contemporary designs that cater to the diverse needs and preferences of today's homeowners. These designs are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional, often incorporating elements that enhance living comfort and convenience. Fischer Homes is continually launching new floorplan designs. Check out Fischer Homes' Masterpiece Collection floorplans. Nine of these floorplans are brand new and were just introduced this past year!

On the other hand, resale homes might require costly renovations to match these modern standards.

Financing: Attractive Options for new homebuyers

Fischer Homes understands the financial aspect of buying a home and offers attractive financing options to ease this process. This can include buying down your interest rate or assistance with closing costs, making the purchase more affordable.

In contrast, financing options for resale homes are severely limited, making new builds even more appealing. With few opportunities to secure assistance with financing from sellers, navigating the world of home loans can be an extra challenge for buyers.



Energy Efficiency: Building a sustainable future

With modern construction and the integration of advanced technologies, new construction homes by Fischer Homes come with the significant added benefit of energy efficiency. These homes are built with the latest advances in construction materials and building practices, providing homeowners with the advantage of reduced monthly utility bills. Many newly constructed homes are certified by independent, third-party home energy raters, ensuring they meet specific energy standards and requirements. This certification translates to features like insulated walls and ceilings, which are crucial for minimizing heat loss in winter and maintaining cool interiors during summer. Additionally, many of these homes come equipped with high-efficiency central air conditioning systems, further reducing energy consumption and utility costs. This focus on energy efficiency in new construction homes not only eases the financial burden on homeowners but also contributes to a more sustainable living environment.

Customization & Personalization: Make It Your Own

Finally, one of the most significant advantages of building a new home is the level of customization and personalization available. Buyers have the opportunity to select finishes, colors, and features that reflect their personal style and meet their specific needs at Fischer Homes Lifestyle Design Center. This ability to tailor a home from the ground up is something that simply cannot be matched by a resale home, where modifications can be restrictive, expensive, and time-consuming.

While both new builds and resales have their merits, building a new home with Fischer Homes offers distinct advantages like warranties, new modern designs, favorable financing options, and extensive personalization possibilities. These factors make it an appealing choice for those looking to create a home that not only meets but exceeds their expectations.
