Why Buy a New Construction Home in Prattville?

When searching for real estate in Prattville, the natural assumption is to go the “usual route” of searching MLS real estate listings for pre-existing homes, working with a real estate agent, and scoping out open houses. However, new construction homes for sale in Prattville tend to be comparable in value to older homes in the area — with fewer maintenance costs and the potential to grow in value over time. As a result, many people find it easier to work with a new construction builder than to work with a realtor to find an older home. Why are new construction homes in Prattville a better choice? There are several reasons:

The new home is genuinely new.

From state-of-the-art appliances to the HVAC system and plumbing, you have confidence that everything is in pristine condition.

New home warranties apply.

If things do go wrong, which is rare, many of your new home’s appliances and features will be under warranty.

Excellent energy efficiency.

New construction homes have higher standards of energy efficiency than older homes. Plus, if you buy from a green homebuilder, you can enjoy even more environmentally friendly upgrades.

No surprises.

Buyers of new construction homes don’t have to deal with complications like residual lead paint, lousy insulation, outdated plumbing/electrical, and inadequate waterproofing.

Enjoy low maintenance costs for years to come.

With new appliances, fixtures, and roofing, you won’t have to worry about replacing them for many years.

You can make it your own.

When you buy an existing construction, you are buying someone else’s house, and it becomes your challenge to make it “your own.” There’s something special about buying a new construction home that’s never been lived in before. Plus, you have the opportunity to customize and upgrade features at the outset, rather than pay more money to make those upgrades after closing.
