Building a New Home Requires the Right Tools

New Construction Green Home Asheville

Asheville has seen a new-construction boom in recent years, thanks to an influx of buyers looking for fresh, modern, green or more centrally located homes in popular neighborhoods. While it’s easy to believe that a newly built home translates to a headache-free real estate transaction, new construction carries its own set of cautionary guidelines. Finding an agent who can navigate the ins and outs of a new-construction purchase is key to getting the best out of your experience. The agents at Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty have the knowhow to guide you through the process smoothly, eliminating the headaches that can come with venturing into unfamiliar territory. Below, a few pointers to get you started:

  • New Construction Asheville HomeIf you’re purchasing a home before or during construction, make sure the building specifics are adequately defined so there is no question about finishes. A Mosaic agent can clue you in to which details you need to know – floor plans and spec sheets are but two of the specifics – and from whom to secure the information.
  • If the seller or builder is perhaps just starting out and lacks some experience, you will want the due diligence period to run beyond completion of construction. That way, you have time to terminate the deal if the house is not completed to spec.
  • Did you know that even if you’re building a new home, you should still be ready to perform a regular home inspection and radon test? While green-built homes already come radon-tested, other types of new-home construction may not.
  • Newly constructed homes don’t generally come with things like mailboxes or bathroom hardware – think towel rods and toilet paper holders. An adept agent will know what to look for on spec sheets, and can help you determine which missing pieces you’ll need to supply yourself.
  • Always make sure you have a one-year warranty as part of new construction. A Mosaic agent can help you nail down the right contract or addendum to protect your new investment.
  • Did you know you can pay for blinds or window treatments but have the builder install them? A knowledgeable agent can help you think through ancillary items like these that you may want to add on during construction of your new home.

A Multitude of Benefits Are Built Into Asheville's New Construction Homes

New Construction Homes in Asheville

There are many benefits to buying a newly constructed home in Asheville. From energy efficiency to low-cost maintenance to modern design and floor plans, new builds allow you a move-in-ready option so you can settle quickly and start enjoying your life in the mountains!

Minimal maintenance

One obvious benefit to owning a brand-new build is little need for maintenance. Everything – plumbing, appliances, HVAC – is modern and should require little of your attention in the first few years. And if they do, warranties will be in effect for a year or two (depending on the coverage) to handle any initial repair costs.

New homes are also built to require less maintenance in the long run. Long-lasting, engineered countertops can withstand much more than the laminated material of yesteryear; hardwood floors popular in most new builds are more durable, and there’s no carpet to replace; and modern exterior finishes utilize materials that can weather the elements for years longer.

With modern construction and advanced appliances and other technologies, new builds easily integrate the kind of energy efficiency that will protect the environment and save you money on monthly utility bills.

Many builders in Asheville participate in Green Built Homes, a voluntary green building certification program administered by the Green Built Alliance. This program offers a certificate for meeting green-building guidelines, with multiple levels of certification available for a range of price points. With such certification, you can be assured of owning an energy-efficient, environmentally sound home.

Modern design

Most new homes embrace the open-floor design popular with modern lifestyles; think kitchens that blend seamlessly into dining and living spaces, large windows that allow for plenty of natural light, master-on-main designs, and the like.

With a new build, you will be assured that space is used efficiently, and aesthetically pleasing designs dominate. Modern floor-plan flow can be much improved over older homes, allowing for flexibility in furnishings, and supplying a more open, airy feel.
