If you are a buyer in today’s market looking for new homes in Pittsburgh, very likely you may be facing the choice of buying a new home versus purchasing a resale home. Especially with how hot the housing market has been the past few years, more and more buyers are coming against the age-old “new versus used” dilemma. While a move-in ready resale home at a lesser price may sound appealing, if both options are on the table it may be a better and healthier option for your family to strongly consider a brand new home. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, shares reasons why new homes can be the best route to go for your family and your health.
When it comes to resale versus new homes, what exactly makes a new home healthier for your family?
A new home is dry which reduces the risks and worries of hidden mold for your family. Mold is a common culprit when buying an older home and with a new home, you’re able to remove that risk for your family.
A new home is also a pest-free home, which means you can lessen your exposure to pests and not have to worry about calling pest control the first week living in your home. New homes also provide safety when it comes to fall and burn opportunities, which can create more peace of mind when moving in.
Two other big pluses with a new home are the fact they are contaminant fee and new homes reduce the levels of lead and other harmful chemicals that are in the home. It also will be well ventilated, pushing contaminants away from living areas.
Choosing a new home will also more likely than not, give you the benefits of more energy savings components like thermal control. The major push and advancement in the preservation of energy in building means your new home is less likely to have extreme temperature swings.
Lastly, when choosing a new home you wont have to worry about how the previous owner maintained the home. Resale homes can look nice from the exterior, but sometimes it is what is hidden behind the walls that can come up later to haunt you (and your wallet.)
