Buying a new home is a big decision and big financial step. Sometimes you’re in the market for an upgrade, sometimes you’re looking to downsize, and sometimes you’re taking the leap into buying your first home. For whatever reason you’re looking to purchase your new home, here are three reasons to consider a new construction with CarrHomes.

1. Green Features and Energy Savings
Every new home builder is required to follow the newest Energy Conservation Code when designing and building homes. Each new code provides significant improvements of the last. From 2006 to 2009, building codes changed to provide up to 17% more efficiencies than previously and the newest codes from 2012 improved on this even further. These improvements include low-e windows, high-quality insulation, and accurate entryway seals. This means your HVAC system has to work less; your home stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. CarrHomes also include energy-efficient appliances to help keep your utility bills low.

2. Fewer Repairs and Less Maintenance
You hear the horror stories of when someone buys a home, move in, and then a pipe bursts or the washer breaks. You will never have to deal with those nightmares when buying a new construction home. Both interior and exterior features will require fewer repairs in the long run and much less maintenance making your home affordable and financially predictable.

3. Semi-Custom Features
Buying an older home can come with quirks and a long to-do list before it ever feels like your home. After the initial investment of buying the home, updating and renovating can leave a hole in your wallet with unexpected expenses. Buying a new construction home allows you to work with the builder and add more personal touches that fit your taste. You move into a home that feels like yours from day one.
