Top Six Reasons to Buy a New Home
We took to social media to ask our homeowners why they bought a new home versus a used home in West Texas and why they bought a Betenbough home. There are many benefits to buying new. Below are the top six according to our homeowners.
While used houses may present themselves at an initially lower price, the cost of inspections and other non-refundable fees will ultimately increase the total cost of purchasing the house. The cost of inspections typically includes spending at $300-$400 before you ever commit to making a purchase.
2. Peace of Mind
Used homes don’t include new home warranties, and the cost of repairs and maintenance can eat at your savings. Every Betenbough home includes a two-year comprehensive new home warranty at no extra cost. This two-year warranty allows you the opportunity to live peacefully without worrying about constant upkeep or pricy repairs.
3. All your Own
Home renovations can sound like an exciting DIY project at first, but often homeowners end up spending way more than they bargained for. On a national average, a homeowner can spend up to $45,000 in renovations, according to Home Adviser. When buying or building a Betenbough home, you are able to select options to make your new house YOUR home all without ever picking up a paintbrush, drill or hammer.
According to a recent NAR (National Association of Realtors) Home Buyer Report, two of the most important factors home buyers considered when purchasing their new home was a convenience to their job and the quality of the school district. Betenbough Homes communities are in some of the most desired school districts in Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland and Odessa. Additionally, all our communities provide easy access to the quickest routes to work and play. We are a builder that understands the importance of quality education and quality of life.
5. A New Beginning
Sometimes a new home is exactly what you need to start fresh. Whether you’re buying your first home, moving up to a larger home for more space, or downsizing to make life feel a little simpler, we have approximately 30 floor plans for you to choose from to start your new beginning in your NEW home.
