Why Buy a Newly Built Home?

New construction homes from GCC Partners can offer significant advantages over pre-owned homes. Depending on what’s important to you, you may find that the advantages of a new construction home outweigh the benefits of a pre-owned alternative.

Some of the top benefits of buying a new construction home from GCC Partners include:


1) Low-Cost Maintenance
New construction homes come with a significant financial benefit: low maintenance costs. With modern plumbing, appliances, heating, and air, a new construction home can leave you worry-free for several years.  Built in accordance with the latest building codes and safety regulations, new construction homes are engineered to require less care and maintenance. With less to worry about and fewer unexpected out-of-pocket expenses after move-in, you can spend time enjoying your new GCC Partners home and exploring your new community rather than making repairs and updates to an existing home.


2) The Convenience of Move-In Ready
Whether you’re on a strict schedule or on a tight budget, new construction homes from GCC Partners are a great option for home buyers who want to move in worry-free with only their suitcases.
With a GCC Partners home, you can trust everything is updated, your plumbing will work and you won’t have any foundation problems that must be fixed before you can move into the home.
You also don’t have to worry about missing or dated appliances, as all of our homes come with state-of-the-art appliances already installed. This often includes:

Washer and dryer
Stove and oven


3) High-Rated Energy Efficiency
With modern construction and the integration of advanced technologies comes the added benefit of energy efficiency. New construction homes from GCC Partners are built with the latest advances in construction materials and building practices, which can give new homeowners the benefit of reduced monthly utility bills.  From high-performance insulation to solar panel installations, every aspect of a GCC Partners home is meticulously planned to reduce energy consumption and lower utility costs for homeowners.


4) The Protection of a New Home Warranty
Just like when you purchase a new car, a new construction home from GCC Partners– and everything in it – comes with a 2-10 home builder’s warranty. This means you can buy with confidence knowing the we will cover the cost of any issues during the warranty period.  This is unlike a pre-owned home where you may not know about hidden defects or problems until after you’ve purchased the home – and you’re left with the bill.  A traditional home warranty only covers certain appliances and systems. If your inspection noted any of the items, they likely won’t be covered.   A home builder’s warranty covers everything!  Our new construction home warranty gives you one less thing to worry about during the home-buying process.  Click HERE to see a sample of our extensive 2-10 home warranty.


5) Modern Floor Plans and Designs for How You Live
Pre-owned homes can be dark and boxy, often leading you through a maze of tiny rooms that have you seeing dollar signs for each wall you’ll want to tear down.
In contrast, a new construction home from GCC Partners is a bright and welcoming experience from the moment you walk in the front door. With a wide-open floor plan, our new homes boast tall ceilings that give a spaciousness you can’t always find in an existing home.  They are also thoughtfully designed for the way people need and want to live.


6) A Home Designed to Fit Your Style
Buying a new construction home from GCC Partners gives you a clean slate. There’s no red shag carpet, rooms covered in floral wallpaper, or pastel-colored bathrooms you’ll have to change as soon as you move in.  Our homes let you find a space that fits your style.  You also have the added appeal of being the first to cook a meal in your kitchen or enjoy your brand new spa bathroom.


Cost of Building vs. Buying Resale

Newly built homes clearly offer some advantages over resale, but what about the cost of buying new construction? Not surprisingly, a brand-new house, built from the ground up, based on current labor and material rates, will be costlier than a house built years ago. According to Zillow, the median sales price of an existing home in the U.S. rose to nearly $354,000 in fall 2022, while the median price of a brand-new home topped $400,000.

So, on the face of it at least, it appears that you’ll be paying extra for buying a new construction home. To compare apples to apples, though, as yourself the question, as you are touring existing homes, will you be happy to move in and not change or update anything? If you are noting outdated appliances or bathroom fixtures or that dreaded beige carpeting in the living area, calculate how much it would cost you to update the features you don’t care for, and then compare the total cost to the price of a new home. And don’t forget about the energy-efficient features of your new home, which will result in lower utility bills and thus lower your overall monthly expenses.
