New Year, New You, New Home!

In Alexandria, it’s not uncommon to see new construction seemingly at every turn. But what is it about a newly constructed home that is so appealing? What are the benefits of purchasing a new home? Well, here are just a few of the many reasons new constructions are so popular.

1. The protection of a new home warranty

    • • Just like when you purchase a new gadget or car, new homes also come with warranties! Appliance manuals and warranties are registered and covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, which means you have one less thing to worry about in case something breaks. Builder warranties are also in place as well, which cover everything in the home for one year that may have had wear and tear. In Virginia, a structural warranty for ten years is also included in a new build, covering if anything structural happens, such as foundation issues.
    • • Purchasing new constructions also will help you build relationships with contractors. They are most familiar with the home through the building process and will be a great resource if any issues arise. Who better to fix something than the person who installed it?



2. New homes are new, stylish, and trendy

    • • Modern floor plans with high-rated, energy-efficient appliances are a staple in new homes. State-of-the-art and stylishly designed fixtures will create an experience and atmosphere that is welcoming and thoughtful as well as modern. You won’t have to worry about updating old appliances or dated wallpapers – new homes are up to date with the best!



3. Move-in ready

    • • With everything new and updated, the home will be ready for you and your family to enjoy. With ready-to-go appliances, a new home can be low-maintenance and leave you worry-free for several years.

    We are downsizing from our house in OT. But, this is lovely. Can you tell me if the kitchen cabinets are white or soft grey? We are renovating our condo at Wintergreen. I love your posts! Pat Moore
