Why Build New?

Ten Reasons You Should Build Your Next Home

Since 2015, millennials and baby boomers have largely influenced the residential real estate market which has resulted in the toughest buyer’s market today in the last decade. Throughout the US, available housing is near 20-year lows and prices keep soaring.

2017 is definitely a seller’s market in Texas and South Carolina. It is common to see open houses filled to capacity, intense bidding wars, and multiple offers above original asking prices. As a result, those looking for an affordable home in a seller’s market can experience quite a stressful and burdensome process to find homes they are compromising for.

1 Home Prices Are Expected To Continuously Rise
Did you know home prices in 2017 are higher than before the 2007 housing crash?! With a 5% increase from 2015 to 2016, an additional 2% to 3% jump is expected this year. With the housing inventory quickly diminishing, available housing in key markets of the country are getting swallowed up.
2Create A Dream Home That Fits You
When you build a new home, you build for you and your family. Why settle for a home that is designed for someone else’s lifestyle? Alleviate the need to update and fix up a home in the confines of its current layout by starting fresh with a home custom designed around what you want in a living space. From flooring and countertops to door and window fixtures, the possibilities are endless when you build new.
3 Save Energy and Reduce Monthly Utility Bills
Technology advancements of today enable many new homes to be much more energy efficient than homes built even five years ago, especially when you consider homes that are 10, 20, or 30 years old. New homes have a significant advantage when it comes to air ventilation, renewable energy options, low energy windows, better insulated walls, regulated temperature controlled rooms and much more to lower monthly utility bills to save money in your pocket. Homebuilders like Blue Zero Homes adhere to strict energy guidelines and keep the environment in mind on each build. The end result is a home that you and your family will love
4 Lessen House Projects and Maintenance Needs
Most homeowners agree that house projects are an ongoing and seemingly endless responsibility. And a house bought on the resale market means you’re taking on the wear and tear of past families over several years. When building new, this doesn’t have to be the case because, well…. It’s new! Moreover, new technology and better building practices keep your home maintenance responsibilities low for many stress free years to come.
5 A New Home Is A Key Investment

Lastly, new housing developments are often strategically built in up and coming parts of town where your local community can expect growth from local stores, restaurants and shops opening near by.
