8 Reasons Why Buying a New Home Is More Beneficial Than Buying a Resale

When deciding whether to buy a new home or a resale, the decision may seem daunting. However, when you think about it, there are many more benefits of buying a new home over a resale. We’ve compiled our top 8 reasons below to help you make your home buying decision easier.

1: Your home, your way

Your home should reflect your own unique personality. Purchasing a new home allows you to create the setting you desire. From kitchen cabinets to flooring to window coverings, your home will reflect your personal preferences and design style.

2: Better overall value

Today’s homes are built to the strictest of codes. That means you're getting a higher quality home that will not require major repairs of any kind, since everything is new.

3: Better warranty

A new home comes with a Tarion Warranty - something that no used home can offer. Furthermore, you can depend on CountryWide Homes to stand behind their products.

4: Better support throughout the process

At CountryWide Homes, our team of sales representatives, design consultants and customer service representatives are on hand to educate and inform customers at every stage in the new home buying process, because we believe that an informed customer is a happy customer.

5: Easier to live green

Our better than code program ensures that each CountryWide home is more energy efficient than resale homes by building above the latest standards in home construction. A CountryWide home improves energy efficiency, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and lowers the cost of owning and maintaining your home.

6: Wired for today’s world

At CountryWide Homes, our homes are wired to accommodate today’s technologies with alarm systems, computers, media centres and more. Much of this new technology did not exist when older homes were being built.

7: Innovation in design and construction practices

CountryWide Homes prides itself on creating some of the most innovative designs in the industry, while being on the forefront of new technology, in order to find better ways of constructing new homes.

8: Homes within a master-planned community

Since 1954, the founder of CountryWide Homes has been involved in the development of master-planned communities, and he definitely learned a thing or two along the way. All CountryWide homes are built in great locations, often near schools, recreation, transit and shopping, in order to allow community residents a higher quality of life.

Choosing a new development is an important decision, but it isn’t the only point you need to think about. Another important consideration to keep in mind is what type of homeownership suits you best. But CountryWide has information to help guide you through that choice as well.
