Ability to customize- When building a home from scratch you can have control over a home’s layout, colors, and features. When you buy a resale home, you have to compromise and accept the previous owners’ tastes.
Warranty- Typically, new homes come with a one-year builder warranty and ten years for major structural components. A home warranty policy is negotiable with a resale but it is not guaranteed.
Lower maintenance- It’s new, so you won’t have to worry about repairs in a while. This can give you more leeway to use that money for other important things, like your mortgage!
Location- If you want to be in the middle of the action, then a resale might be a better option for you.
