Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home

Posted by admin on September 13, 2020

Today’s new construction homes offer more benefits than ever before, making them a strong contender in your Summit County mountain dream home search. After doing some research on what’s right for you and your family, you may find that the advantages of investing in a new construction home outweigh the pre-owned alternative. The team at Wolf Real Estate is here to help you navigate that decision and weigh the options with you. We understand that modern development and new construction in Summit County should gracefully integrate with what already makes this area unique and desirable. We know our clientele seeks the boldness of luxury mountain real estate, as well as access to the sights and amenities of Summit County’s natural environment. With those truths in mind, and high buyer demand for the newest in luxury mountain homes, here are six things to consider when deciding if purchasing a new construction home is right for you.

1. Move-in ready

New construction homes are a great option for home buyers who want to move in worry-free with only their suitcases. With a new construction home, you can trust that heating systems are brand new, your plumbing is in working order, and you won’t come across foundation problems that need repair before you are able to move in. Having outdated appliances isn’t something you have to worry about either as new construction homes offer state-of-the-art and energy efficient appliances already installed. You can most likely expect to see a new dishwasher, washer and dryer, stove and oven, microwave and refrigerator. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to replace (or clean) any of these high priced items when moving into your new home? If you’re considering investing in a pre-owned home, instead of new construction, the chances of you needing to replace those items can be pretty high.


2. Low cost maintenance

Today, new construction homes are engineered to require less care and maintenance, which provides significant financial benefits for new home buyers. Contemporary plumbing, modern appliances, efficient heating and air are just a few benefits that give way to fewer out of pocket expenses. Having new amenities should ultimately allow you to relax and not worry about having to fix one thing after the next. Enjoy soaking up your new community and meeting your neighbors rather than spending time, energy, and money repairing or making home improvements to your new home. Overall, a new construction home can sometimes be pricey, but are often less expensive in terms of maintenance and utilities.

3. New home warranty

Just like when you purchase anything that’s a substantial investment, it often comes with a warranty. Purchasing a new construction home is no different. You will more than likely feel at peace making this investment knowing that the builder will cover the cost of any issues such as a roofing problem or broken window while still within the warranty period. This is a huge benefit because sometimes if you purchase a pre-owned home, you are left with the unexpected costs when you uncover hidden problems only after you’ve closed on the sale - not ideal!

4. New construction homes are energy efficient!

New construction home builders leverage modern innovations and advanced technologies because they offer tremendous energy efficiency. More often than not, that new construction home you have your eye on was specifically built to use less energy and be as efficient as possible. They are also built with the latest advancements in construction materials which will help to reduce your monthly utility bills in the long run. By investing in a new construction home, you’ll have more of a say in the strategies used to reduce your home’s carbon footprint. For example, your home would include insulated walls and ceilings helping to reduce heat loss in the winter, and keep your home cool in the summer.


5. The never-been-touched attraction

A big attraction new homes offer are modern floor plans and designs. Bedrooms, closets, bathrooms, and kitchens, especially, tend to be larger and brighter with lots of natural light, whereas pre-owned and older homes tend to be boxy-like and on the smaller side. What we’ve seen is that home owners will ultimately tear down those smaller walls and combine them to make a larger room in the long run. We recommend thinking about the amount of money you plan to spend on remodels and changes you will want to make to a pre-owned home versus how much you would save with a new construction home if you don’t think you’d want to change anything. This could certainly be a deal-breaker! Another feature we’ve noticed that potential home owners want are eat-in islands in the kitchen for the perfect entertaining atmosphere. You’ll find this feature pretty consistently in new construction homes.


6. You’re first to try it all

No one knows your wants and desires in your dream home better than you do, and having so much control over the details that fit your home to your taste and lifestyle is quite a luxury. If you’re someone that really enjoys a say in what makes your perfect living space, you’ll really enjoy getting to make decisions on styling your home. From paint color to window coverings to furniture, owning a new construction home means it's yours to put your stamp on when you move in rather than having to overcome someone else's decorating style and choices.


Whether you're entering retirement, growing a family and looking for more space, or looking to purchase your first home, investing in a new construction home has something to offer for everyone. New construction creates more work opportunities, life experiences, and breathes fresh life into our local economy.

What Our Clients Have to Say

"Todd did a great job of showing available properties in our price range and explaining the market to us, but the real work started after we were in contract. They did a phenomenal job of helping us navigate all the obstacles of purchasing an out-of-state home. I can’t thank them enough for their assistance." - Michael Sizelove


'We had the pleasure of working with Todd from the Wolf Team in our purchase of real estate in Frisco. We had tight time constraints and were working from out of state in purchasing a property. Todd did an excellent job objectively assessing our needs for price and value in the area. He went above and beyond to vet numerous properties prior to our arrival. Upon our arrival, we were quickly able to evaluate options and make an informed purchase decision. Todd was more interested in putting our short and long-term needs first before making a quick sale. Todd's follow-up after the sale has also been exceptional. He has made sure all is well after the sale and also let us know his help is available for issues beyond our purchase. I highly recommend Todd and the Wolf Team." - Paul Stewart


"Great team!!! Either Kouri or Todd get back to me as soon as they are by their phone. I always enjoy working with them.!!" - Arnette Schouten


"We entrusted Kouri to handle 3 real estate transactions for us over the past 10 years. She has been in the area since the late 1970s, so she has tremendous familiarity with Summit County properties as they exist today and their history of development. Kouri complements her familiarity with Summit County with great competency that, for us, translated into savings in our pocket. She readily puts her tireless energy at work for her clients, which helped build a long-term relationship with us and repeat business without hesitation. She's the best in Summit County!"  -User 0571849 via


"She listed our home. She made several suggestions on changes to be made to our home which would encourage showings. She had multiple showings almost every week. She works with her son, which actually provided us with 2 agents! She kept us updated on sales in the area. She assisted us with finding people to keep the home very presentable, including snow removals, house cleaning services, and watering of flowers." -LCFobes via


"Kouri went above and beyond to help us purchase a home from a thousand miles away, after only one visit to town. She drove us around in the snow and tromped through houses as they were being built and made special Saturday appointments with architects and builders. We are thrilled with Kouri and will definitely be calling her again for any future real estate needs." -BabsWood via
