Benefits of Buying New

Peace of Mind with a New Home

Benefits of Buying New

There are several benefits to buying a new home versus a used home. Not only is everything new, but dependent on the age of a used home, your new home may also perform better. With a new home, you’ll have less initial repairs or re-dos and a new home warranty. Every new Shea home is covered by our new home warranty and our 1-5-11 program. Peace of mind, brand new everything, and a warranty to back it all up

  • Minimal Repairs or Updates: With a new home, everything is new. While your home will still require regular maintenance, you won’t be spending your time right after you move in making updates and repairs as you might with a used home. When you build a new home from the ground up, you select the floor plan and personalize the design features so there will be no need to spend time remodeling once you move in.
  • Wired for Technology: New homes are often wired to handle today’s latest technology such as state-of the-art Wi-Fi and smart home products. With a used home, you’ll likely have to retrofit the home to accommodate these technology features.
  • Modern Design: The floor plan design of your home represents the latest concepts and design trends such as open space, large kitchens and extra closet space. Because your new home will be personalized with design features chosen by you, the home will fit how you live.
  • Updated Building Processes and Materials: The materials used in new home construction are likely more advanced and energy efficient when compared to those materials used in most older homes. Your new home's appliances may be more energy efficient than those in an older home. Newly built homes also feature the latest safety features.
