Home buyers typically decide to buy a brand new home because it gives them the chance to decorate the home the way they want it. There’s no need to change paint colors or strip wallpaper, and the home comes with all new appliances. Little Elm new homes are also more energy efficient than older homes, and come with a warranty.
But there some not-so-obvious social benefits to buying a new home that you may not read about in the home builder’s sales brochure. Chief among them is the fact that a new community means that everyone is moving in around the same time. Home builders may even host community parties to help neighbors meet one another. As a result, people tend to form lasting friendships with their new neighbors. If you’re the “new kid on the block” in an older community, it’s a lot harder to connect with the established neighborhood.
Another reason why people tend to bond together in new communities is because they’re frequently at the same stage of life. Young families get to know one another at PTA meetings, and their kids are playing together at the community playground, pool or basketball court. Active retirees may socialize on the community golf course or tennis court.
Entertaining in a new home is a lot easier than in an older home too. New homes like the ones built by Landon at the Enclave at Lakeview feature open floor plans which allow you to prepare meals and still easily carry on conversations with guests in the living room. Older homes typically have smaller, closed off rooms, which don’t lend themselves as well to socializing.
A new home also has more tangible benefits for the home buyer. Some people love parking their car in a sparkling-clean garage, or being able to design and plant the lawn and garden of their dreams.
New homes are also more technologically advanced than older homes. Houses built in the 1960’s and earlier were wired much differently than today’s houses. The builders in that era couldn’t have anticipated the need for all the high-tech gear we use today like HDTVs, DVRs, and computers. Builders are now including structured wiring, security systems and sophisticated lighting plans, as well as additional outlets to handle the myriad electronics and appliances that today’s family uses.
