Deciding on your home

Advantages of buying a brand new home

When you buy a new home, you get the best of both worlds – all the traditional value you expect in a home, plus the advantages that only a newly built home can provide.

Built-in flexibility

Universal home design is a growing part of today’s lifestyle. Doesn’t it make sense that your home can adapt to life’s changes as you grow older, if you have an accident or when children come along?

Buying from plan and display homes

When you buy a brand new home, you will most likely make your decision based on the builder’s standard plans, display homes or a combination of the two. This requires careful thought and attention to detail.

Buying into a community

Many new home buyers are looking for a community as well as a home – a friendly place to live, a good environment for raising a family or enjoying one’s retirement years. A place where neighbours know each other and care.

Inclusions and upgrades

One of the most exciting aspects of buying a brand new home is that you get to decide on the features and finishing touches that go into the home. This gives you the opportunity to get what you want, from the very beginning.

Landscaping

A garden and other outdoor spaces can be a great source of joy and pride to you – an extension of your home, to be enjoyed for many months of the year as a social gathering place, a private area for relaxation and a pleasurable nature experience.

Lighting

Lighting is important to the comfort and appeal of your new home. Whether your home comes with a standard lighting package and options for upgrades or with a set cost allowance, you make the final decisions about fixtures and features.

Pre-wiring

Your decision to buy a brand new home opens up many unique possibilities. One of the most valuable is the opportunity to have your new home pre-wired for both today and tomorrow’s communications choices.

Standard upgrades and options

When you decide to buy a new home based on a display, remember that this is not the actual house that you will be living in. Most display homes have been improved with options and decorations to show you how good the home can look and what the builder can offer.
