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!
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.
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.
