Central Valley, Calif. – December 2016 – As we countdown the days, hours and minutes to the New Year, we reflect on ways to improve our life in the year to come. A new year represents a fresh start and what better way to embody that idea than in a brand new home. In the spirit of the season, we are counting down the main reasons why buying new is better.
#9 A floorplan that works for you. When shopping for a resale home, very often you’ll find that the home you liked best may not offer the specs or bedrooms you and your family need. Lennar’s new home communities offer a variety of floorplans designed for the way people live today. Open-concept living areas, gourmet kitchens with plenty of counter and storage space, massive walk-in closets in the master bedrooms — you want your home to fit your family, not the other way around.
#8 It’s all new, it’s all included and it’s all under warranty! A used home likely has tired products and parts that may require replacement sooner than you’d like. Your new home, and the features and products that comprise it, are brand-new and under warranty. What’s even better? Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program puts a high level of stylish and upscale features and appointments — such as stainless steel appliances, granite kitchen countertops and more — into all new homes as standard. Meaning at no additional cost to the buyer!
#7 Energy and cost savings. Today’s new homes are far more energy-efficient than homes built just five years ago, so when it comes to a home that is 10 or 20 years old, there really is no contest. Lennar’s Everything’s Included® features put items like programmable thermostats, dual-pane windows with argon fill and low-E glass, Energy Star®-qualified appliances, low flow toilets and sinks, tankless water heaters and so much more into all their new homes. These items work to create lower energy use and utility costs each month.
#6 Comfort and indoor air quality. Today’s new homes meet new stringent energy standards and codes not in place in the past. They combine high performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. The result is year-round, draft-free comfort and higher indoor air quality.
#5 Low maintenance. Just like a new car is computer-designed and engineered, so is a new home. Open floorplans with high ceilings reflect the way people live today, reducing a need to remodel down the road. New homes are made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance, and the latest building systems and components are designed and engineered to work together.
#4 An amazing lifestyle. Many new homes are built in master-planned communities that provide residents-only amenities. Lennar builds walkable communities set in only the most sought-after and desirable locations that have great school districts and are near to shopping centers, major employers, recreation, entertainment and more.
#3 Advanced technology and design. With a resale home, it is possible to replace the single-pane windows with high performance ones or to add insulation. But it’s very expensive to replace dated appliances, cabinets, countertops, water heaters and all the other items that come standard in a new Lennar home. Plus, you won’t have the high ceilings on the first floor of an older two-story home.
#2 Health. New Lennar homes promote healthy indoor air quality with low VOC interior paint and improved insulation systems. Since they’re built with improved materials and technology, the risk of mold is greatly reduced when compared with a resale home.
#1 That new home feel. Chances are that when you buy a resale home, you’re compromising on something. Maybe you love the home but ideally needed an extra bedroom? Regardless of what you have had to compromise on in the past, a new Lennar Everything’s Included® home means you don’t have to anymore. Enjoy a home where the story starts with you.
