Top 5 Benefits of Buying a New House
After you’ve made the decision to buy, the next big question is whether you should buy a new or used home. Although there are benefits to purchasing existing homes, we reckon the benefits of purchasing a new home – especially one that is built to suit your needs – are unbeatable. Here are our top 5 benefits of buying a new house:
Government Incentives for First Home Buyers
All Australian state governments provide various support for first home buyers. In Queensland, this is called the ‘First Home Buyers Grant’. This Grant is a one off payment of $20,000 that is available until midnight on the 31st December 2017. This Grant is available for first home buyers who are purchasing a new house, unit or townhouse that is valued at less than $750,000. From the 1st of January, 2018, the Grant reverts back to the original $15,000. There is also the first home concession and the home concession. Find out more.
Energy standards have changed dramatically in recent years. New homes have energy efficient windows, better air filtration, modern heating/cooling systems and the latest (and most energy conserving) appliances and features. So, if you want to save money on your electricity bill every month, a new home is the way to go.
Little Maintenance Required
Buying a new house means you won’t be surprised with unexpected (and likely expensive) maintenance and repair issues. Your new home and all of its fixtures will be brand new and still under warranty. This means you will have years of enjoyment ahead of you before you even need to think about maintenance!
Designed to Your Liking
When you choose to build a new home, you can choose a floor plan and room layout that suits your needs exactly. You get total flexibility when it comes to picking the home and inclusions that suit your budget, lifestyle and taste, and you don’t have to settle for choices someone else made. New homes also often include ‘luxuries’ like pools, ensuite bathrooms and theatre rooms, all of which would be very costly to add to existing properties.
New homes have state-of-the-art circuit breakers, smoke detectors and safety glass. They are free of lead paint, asbestos and unsafe design features. Constructed to comply with the latest building and safety standards, new homes include a wide range of safety measures that will protect you and your family from harm.
