New Homes vs. Resale

10 Secrets Every New Home Buyer Should Know

The housing market can be confusing, especially for first time buyers. With endless decisions to make when selecting a home, each choice offers its own obstacles. One of the most important questions a new homeowner must ask himself or herself is whether to buy a new home or purchase a resale.

Both resale homes and new homes offer their own advantages. Existing homes are less expensive and usually part of established neighborhoods; buyers find a sense of security knowing their home is part of a thriving community. Alternatively, new homes offer innovative use of space, modern energy efficiency and options for upgrades. With a new home, you can make it your own.  Where do you start? How do you decide between the two?

The choice that’s right for you depends on many things: your finances, your family composition and your taste. One in four homebuyers purchases a new home, even though the majority of homes on the market are resale houses.
