Start Fresh, Start New: Buying New vs. Resale

Lennar Southeast Florida

When you’re ready to make the big move, do you opt for a new home or a resale? While a tight budget may point you toward a used home, the benefits of owning a brand-new home far outweigh the costs. If you buy with Lennar – where every community is newly built – you’ll also find that some of our more exclusive homes are now FHA eligible, increasing your home-buying chances. Here, we’ve identified five reasons to buy new and three accessibly priced Miami-Dade communities to get you started.

1.New means unused, untouched, and completely yours!

Looking past the desirable prices of an older home, consider what you’re inheriting: the inevitable wear and tear of the years, on one end, and the previous owner’s home problems, on the other. However, buying a new home, though it may be more costly upfront, will save you the stress and, ultimately, the greater costs of repairing worn-out features. With this very detail in mind, Lennar affords you the peace-of-mind that every home is up-to-code and includes warranties on appliances, roofing, and more. So, you can sit back and truly enjoy that “new home” smell – along with all the money you’ll save on upkeep!

2. Contemporary designs for contemporary families  

Let’s face it, the trends we loved five or ten years ago are long gone and not quite as functional for the modern lifestyle. Fortunately, all Lennar homes are thoughtfully crafted to ensure our floorplans reflect your family’s unique needs. For example, Campo Bello’s new single-family homes in Miami feature open-concept floorplans with plenty of breathing space and oversized backyards, allowing your family to spread out and come together, just as easily. Now qualifying for FHA, Campo Bello’s single-family homes also give you the opportunity to own more home, for less.

3. Your unique style will shine through!

When you purchase a new home, you won’t have to settle for someone else’s vision. Instead, bring your dream home to life by customizing your flooring, cabinets, and more! Normally, these kinds of upgrades come with a large dollar sign attached – but, if you live in Siena Creek, a new townhome community in South Miami, Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® package means you’ll get to choose from a wide selection of premium features and finishes all for the price of your home, which is well under the FHA limit!

4. Built-in technology and efficiency, no retrofitting necessary!  

With the ever-changing nature of technology – from the innovative devices, down to the new wiring – it’s no surprise older homes are unable to keep up with the updates. Lennar’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Designs and energy-efficient appliance package are standard in every home, promising exceptional connectivity and lower utility bills. For prices starting from the low $300s, you can enjoy all these benefits from your new AquaBella townhome in Hialeah. Adjust the thermostat as you take a power nap on your private patio or, if your family has gone to the clubhouse pool and forgot to turn off the lights, a simple click won’t deter you from an exciting afternoon.

5. You get more than just a home.

While resale homes may lack amenities altogether, newer homes are now offering a resort-like feel, only steps away. A great example is AquaBella, which boasts two lakefront clubhouses, sparkling pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, social rooms, and more. Surprisingly attainable, these exclusive community amenities not only provide an outlet to recharge and have fun, but also give you an excuse to skip the gym membership and enjoy added value that is unsurpassed.

Buying a home is a big commitment, so making the right decision for your family is absolutely crucial.
