Top 5 Reasons to Buy New

By Raymus Homes - 3-1-2016

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

Your current home/apartment just isn’t working for you anymore…Maybe the upkeep is becoming overwhelming or your family has been blessed with a new addition so space is tight. Whatever your situation, you’ll likely be considering the pros and cons of used (resale) homes versus new homes. Here are five reasons why buying new should be your top priority:

1) Chance to Design your Home the way YOU want it

With a used home, you are essentially living someone else’s dream. Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can select the cabinets, counter-tops, flooring, and appliances YOU want in a Raymus home? When you purchase a new home from Raymus, you meet with our professional interior designer, Cynthia. She helps you select everything to your taste and budget so you can personalize and craft your brand, new home.

2) Everything is New and Under Warranty

Used toilet seats, used roofing, used nails, used appliances, used carpet – sadly, this is usually the standard in a used home. Plus, in a used home, the building products have aged and will likely need repair or replacement. With a new home, you can relax knowing everything in your home is new AND under warranty. Products in new homes feature the latest technology and design, offering years of comfort before needing replacement. This brings us to the next point…

3) New Homes are Low Maintenance

Ever noticed how nowadays, new cars rarely (if ever) break down? Homes are the same! Today’s new homes are built with cutting-edge materials and products that are designed to require less care and maintenance. Raymus Homes firmly believes you should spend more time enjoying your home and less time taking care of it. With our commitment to low maintenance materials and easy care surfaces, you can rest easy in your new home and soak up your slice of the “American Dream.”

4) New Homes are Energy-Efficient (leaving green in your pocket!)

So you may not be a crazy hippie tree hugger, but I know you work hard for your money and don’t like to see it flushed down the drain. Did you know, always leaving your phone charger plugged in costs you about $20 a year? Our USB outlets in the Drop Zone don’t suck power so those 20 bucks stay in your pocket (hello, Starbucks splurge). The same goes for the rest of your home – tankless water heaters, low-E windows, and radiant barrier roof sheathing all save you money on a monthly basis and keep you more comfortable in your brand, new home.

5) That “New Home” Feel

You know how people always notice that new car smell? Well, it’s the same with new homes! Not only is there a new home smell, but there’s a new home feel – the blank canvas where you and your family can be the first to make memories and make this house feel like your home. And while you can always learn to get used to the quirks of a used home, the bigger question is – should you have to?

Style. Quality. Comfort. Those define the new home experience. Do you and your family deserve anything less?
