New Home Communities - Edmonton
There's nothing quite like buying a new home. When you buy a home in a new community, you’re able to completely customize it to fit your vision. Instead of a thoroughly lived-in home with all the nagging problems to match, a new home gives you a blank slate along with the newest appliances and finishes for you to start things out right. The best part is that new home communities in Edmonton extend the new home benefit beyond the home to the entire neighborhood, providing all the best that modern development and planning has to offer.
While new home communities in Edmonton might not be the most affordable option on the market, once you consider the purchase price and necessary work or upgrades you'll have to do to bring a previously owned home up to standards, you’re likely to break even on your investment or even come out ahead! And, after it's all said and done, you won't get the same warranties on a pre-owned home that a new home construction provides, which can put a significant portion of your budget in jeopardy.
Beyond the financial implications of buying a used fixer-upper, the benefits of new home communities in Edmonton are readily apparent, and moving into a perfectly clean and pristine home in a modern, master-planned neighborhood cannot be overstated. The lack of surprises down the line is also favorable protection against chewing into your maintenance budget, which many experts pin at one percent of your home's value per year. That could end up costing you tens of thousands in repairs over the first few years of homeownership, and you'd still be no closer to having the home of your dreams.
Furthermore, when you go with a reputable builder when searching for Edmonton residential developers - one that has been building new home developments in Edmonton for decades - you won't run into problems that tend to afflict younger, more inexperienced builders. Both the quality and reliability of each home are the domain of the builder, and a builder that's out of their element could leave you with a problematic new home that requires the equivalent work of a previously owned home. If you’re buying a new home, do it right!
On the other hand, builders that have produced quality homes time and again are sought after because of their superior construction standards and savvy design choices. This is good news for those that want a home that looks and functions great today, and will continue to do so well into the future. Reputable builders also back their work with home warranties that protect materials and workmanship from defects for years, which allows you to spend a bit more on the purchase price since maintenance essentially drops to nothing for a new home build.
While new homes are not impervious to all repair bills, the limited upkeep and low maintenance required when purchasing a home in new housing developments in Edmonton communities mean that you don’t have to worry about the majority of common issues with your new home for years after purchase. Compared to a used home that could demand large amounts of repairs and renovations to get things where you'd like them to be, a new home in an Edmonton community is move-in ready and up to code when it comes to wiring, plumbing, and other tricky bits that tend to require costly renovations to make them safe and habitable.
Unlike older homes, new home constructions also tend to have larger rooms and more open, modern floor plans, something that you really can't change with a used home unless you gut it all and invest a considerable amount in a large renovation project. With an older home, you'll either have to learn to live with it or double down on your investment with a costly in-place build that could end up far exceeding a new home build.
New home communities in Edmonton also maintain their value over time rather well, and they often come with valuable community amenities such as parks and public spaces that can be enjoyed by anyone that lives in the community. They also come with modern landscaping and tend to have more surrounding greenery than the mish-mash of older communities that may only be loosely held together by proximity and not much else.
A crucial component of new home communities in Edmonton is that they are outfitted with the latest in energy efficiency and other environmentally friendly options that are good for Mother Earth as well as your pocketbook. Instead of a tricky furnace, water heater, and central air system that may be on the verge of total replacement, you'll be getting new, energy-efficient systems that should last decades -- in addition to modern, energy-efficient windows, toilets, and thermostats that could allow you to live a more carbon-neutral life.
