Now is the time to buy as interest rates rise


January 2017 – A new year is a fresh start and it’s never been a greater time to purchase a new home. Over the past two months we have seen interest rates starting to rise, signaling that now is the time to buy. If you’ve been on the fence about making the jump, we highly encourage buyers to make their move today before it’s too late.

“There is no better time than now to buy a new home,” said Jeff Roos, Division President for Lennar West. “We build in many of the most highly sought after areas and offer a large variety of floorplan styles to meet every type of lifestyle need. From active adult to multigenerational homes, we have a floorplan for every family!”

If you’re in the market for a new home, you might be asking yourself whether brand new or resale is right for you. The reasons to go new are plentiful. Buying new is not only better—it’s smarter, healthier and more energy-efficient.

Our Everything’s Included® program was designed to give homebuyers the features they want, without the hassle of having to select options and unexpected costs. We include a high level of standard features that come in all our new homes at no additional cost to the buyer. These features not only improve the home’s overall performance, they also add tremendous value.

Energy efficiency is often at the top of a modern home shopper’s wish list. New Lennar homes incorporate current energy standards and building codes and implement features that are designed to lower the home’s utility usage when compared with a typical resale home.

Items like programmable thermostats help reduce overuse of heating or cooling systems. Tankless water heaters, available in select communities, can be 24 to 34 percent more efficient than a traditional tank-style water heater. Other items that help improve a new Lennar home’s energy efficiency include radiant barrier roofs, ENERGY STAR® certified appliances, low-E windows, LED lighting and more.

Another great reason to buy new? You can find the floorplan that works for you and your family best. Instead of trying to make the best resale home you could find in your price range work, why not choose a new home that actually meets your needs? New Lennar homes are designed for the way people live today and all of our communities offer a distinctive variety of floorplan styles and sizes.

A new home also reduces the need for repairs. When you move-in, everything is brand-new allowing you to rest assured you won’t be inheriting a past owner’s general maintenance requirements. New Lennar homeowners also enjoy increased indoor air comfort and quality. Low VOC paints contain less toxins than older paint.

Lennar makes no guarantee of present or future market conditions. You should consult your own accounting, legal and tax advisors to evaluate the risks, consequences and suitability of any real estate transaction. Real estate market conditions involve risks, variables and uncertainties that may cause the real estate values to differ materially from geographic area, timeframes and product types. Energy claims were developed by third parties and not based upon specific testing of an individual’s home. Savings will vary due to many variables, including but not limited to, actual utility rates and fees, actual construction, floor plan, occupancy, appliance usage, thermostat settings, weather conditions, number of individuals occupying the home and orientation of the home. Lennar provides no guarantee of savings or efficiency that will be achieved by each homeowner. Lennar makes no guarantee of the present or future condition of a home, indoor air quality, comfort of the occupants, or market conditions. Improper maintenance of a home can create poor indoor air quality and/or health risks. People react very differently to exposure to indoor air pollutants. You should have an independent third party inspector inspect the home for potential contaminant exposure risks and consult your own construction and medical advisors.
