Why You Should Purchase a New Home

In the market for a home? Curious about the pros and cons of purchasing an existing home vs. buying a new home? Check out our list below of the benefits of purchasing a brand-new home!

Everything is brand-new

One of the best parts about purchasing a brand-new home is that everything is new! No need to worry about the potential extra cost of repairs or updates that existing homes need. Plus, new homes won’t need as much maintenance as existing homes! However, in the rare occasion that something does go wrong, Colony Fine Homes has a one-year builders warranty and an in-house Customer Care Department.

Customer care and warranties

If you purchase an existing home, potential issues like leaky sinks or broken air conditioners could become quite expensive.

At Colony Fine Homes, we build homes with high-quality materials that are less likely to break down. Additionally, our brand-new homes come with a one-year builder’s warranty and a 10-year structural warranty. If you have any issues with your new home within the first year, contact our Customer Care Department.

Energy-efficient homes

We are proud to build energy-efficient homes! Our building methods help you save money on monthly utility bills and leave less of a carbon footprint while keeping you comfortable in your new home. 

All of our new homes have a HERS Rating of 47 to 54. The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS Index is the most in-depth assessment of home energy efficiency. This assessment takes into account all variables that can affect the energy efficiency of a home. These factors include exterior walls, attic, windows, doors, heating and cooling systems, duct work, water heating systems, lighting, and appliances. All of our homes are verified by the HERS home energy rating assessment, which is conducted by a certified RESNET energy rater.
