Buying a New Home vs. Used in Northern Virginia

  Home Systems   Used: Old, antiquated systems that require repairs, and cause code concerns and maintenance issues. The average used home on the market in Northern Virginia is 10 years old.  New: New plumbing, electric, heating, and cooling systems that run efficiently and give you peace of mind   Style and Design   Used: Design choices that reflect another family from another time New: Wide open space and unique options that allow you to incorporate your personal style   Floor Plan   Used: A layout that’s completely out of your hands (and not in sync with your lifestyle) New: A modern, flexible plan chosen by you to fit your specific needs for number and location of rooms, overall space, and more   image1 1   Price   Used: Competition from other potential buyers can force you to raise your bid price. Used homes in Northern Virginia are selling 1-2% above list price.  New: Purchase your new home at a set price, with no competition and zero stress — no more bidding wars!   Warranty Program   Used: Depending on its age, the home and everything in it are likely long past warranty coverage, so no warranties mean large repair bills New: Invaluable peace of mind today, tomorrow, and down the line with a builder home warranty AND quality brand manufacturer warranties   Energy Efficiency   Used: Missing many of the energy-efficient features that you’re looking for today New: Expertly built with energy-efficient features that respect the environment, keep you comfortable, and save you money on your energy bills   image2 1   The Area   Used: An unfamiliar location or lot that you didn’t necessarily want or choose New: A choice of new home communities in Northern Virginia (complete with the contemporary amenities you love, near everything you want and need) where you’ll create shared experiences and new friendships with neighbors just like you     As you compare new construction vs. resale, be sure to consider just how much a high-end home will enhance your daily routine.
