Six Reasons To Choose New Construction for Your Next (or First) Home

Dec 21, 2021

When purchasing a new construction home, you get the opportunity to shape your vision for your family’s dream home and future life together. Buying a home is not a decision to make lightly – it’s one of the single largest investments you will ever make. It’s essential to do it right.

Sure you can purchase a fixer-upper or a foreclosed home at a good price. While those homes make for good weekend DIY projects or remodels, they can also turn into a money pit. Here are 6 benefits from choosing new construction for your next home.

Low Maintenance

New construction homes typically have less maintenance than older existing homes. You won’t have to worry about your roof leaking when it rains or your air conditioner breaking in Louisiana heat. You can enjoy all the perks of living in a brand new home without having to YouTube “how to fix sagging gutters” or “what does mildew look like.” When things do break down in a newly constructed home, they are typically covered by the builder’s warranty.

Move-in-and Start Living

With a new construction home, you can trust everything is updated. From the roof to the foundation – your plumbing will work and you won’t have any foundation problems that will delay your move in date.

You also don’t have to worry about missing or dated appliances that don’t match or function properly. AP Dodson new construction homes come with state-of-the-art appliances already installed. This can include:

  • Washer and dryer
  • Refrigerator
  • Stove and oven
  • Microwave
  • Dishwasher

High-Rated Energy Efficiency

There are many reasons why these new construction houses are so energy-efficient. A few reasons include vinyl windows, new door trim and seals, and better insulation between walls to keep out extreme weather. These products can reduce the need to heat and cool your home by a significant amount. The savings help to offset the higher cost of a new home in the long run.

Protection of a New Home Warranty

When working with AP Dodson, we offer warranties that you could never get on a pre-owned home. Sure, you can buy a home warranty later, but that only covers a small number of items. Your homeowner’s insurance will cover significant events, but a builder’s warranty goes beyond all of that.
Many home builder warranties cover anything that happens to the home within two years of the date of purchase. Since your new AP Dodson home is in one of our communities, we’ll be in the neighborhood and can schedule repairs quickly.

Home Design to Fit Your Style

Customizing your new home is one of the most exciting parts of building new construction. A custom, tailor-made home provides a unique opportunity for home buyers to showcase their creative point of view and craftsmanship. It also allows you to express yourself with finishes that reflect your tastes, preferences, and personalities.
Existing homes rarely offer the opportunity for you to change the layout of the house. At best, you can remodel and change out the old fixtures and finishings. If personalizing your next home is at the top of your wish list, then a customized new home may be very appealing for you.

New Community with Amenities

When you purchase a new construction home in an AP Dodson community, you get more than just a house. You also gain a brand new community with amenities and features you can’t always get in a pre-owned home. Along with the added bonus of an expertly crafted neighborhood, our communities offer opportunities for families to create lasting memories.

Some AP Dodson communities offer the following amenities:

  • Playground
  • Walking Trails around ponds
  • Fishing Pier
  • Pavillion
