Whether it’s in West Asheville, Montford, Kenilworth, North Asheville, or one of the many other popular neighborhoods in the area, new builds are plentiful, as are lots prime for building on.

As you begin your Asheville real estate search, it makes sense to consider the benefits of owning a newly constructed home. Following are a few of the most popular reasons – and some you may not have contemplated.

Energy Efficiency

Whether it’s windows that prevent heat gain and loss, energy-efficient appliances, better insulating and air sealing, or simpler options like dual flush toilets, smart thermostats, and LED lighting, a new build is sure to save on energy use compared with older homes. Especially in Asheville, more and more builders are putting a priority on constructing green and energy-efficient homes that benefit both the buyer and the environment.

Customization

When you construct a new home, you have control over both exterior and interior customization. From major details like paint color, flooring and appliance upgrades to smaller things like kitchen fixtures and lighting, having a hand at the outset of construction can assure you’ll create a home perfectly suited to your tastes and lifestyle.

Less Maintenance

In addition, new builds come with a range of warranties for things like full structure, exterior and appliances.

Smart Features

Newly constructed homes often come with smart technology build right in. Whether it’s alarm systems, in-wall speakers, digital thermostats or the like, having control right at your fingertips or via voice command makes life easier, saving you time and money in the long run.

Entertaining and Lifestyle

Green Home New Construction AshevilleHome floor plans and amenities have evolved immensely over the years. Modern builds often boast open layouts, higher ceilings, more windows and a fresh focus on outdoor space. All of this lends a more convivial air to entertaining and family time, bringing everyone together in expansively combined living, dining and kitchen spaces. New homes are also more likely to have large master baths, walk-in closets and dressing rooms, and creative storage solutions.

More Time

Moving into a new build is most often a seamless undertaking, which means you can unpack those boxes and quickly get to what really matters – enjoying your new home. And once you’re settled, you can spend more time enjoying where you live and less time dealing with weekend home-improvement to-do lists.
