A new development in an already beautiful location guarantees some fantastic real estate opportunities. The beautiful Comox Valley has some exciting new listings that you'll want to take a look at if you're considering a new home. Buying a new home is a very exciting occasion, and even more so when you get to be the very first occupant. There are many other reasons to consider buying a newly constructed home. Here are just a few:
1. A Sense of Community - The building of a new home often means the development of a new neighbourhood as well. There is a pride of ownership that you share with your neighbours that can lead to an ongoing conscientiousness about your neighbourhood. In addition, a modern home design that's shared with other houses on your street can also add to the character. A good developer knows how to design a neighbourhood as well as a home in order to foster a sense of community, and finds the perfect balance between areas that are public, recreational, decorative, and private. This helps to foster a spirit of community.
2. Lifestyle Focus - New construction often means you can include custom features in your new home that are unique to your lifestyle. Maybe that means including an entertainment room that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "home theatre". Maybe some smart features or appliances automate things like temperature control, yard maintenance, or security features. You might want a master bedroom ensuite that offers a day spa environment you can access any time. Or perhaps your home customizations make your hobbies easier to enjoy, such as adding a small room with a sink behind your featured aquarium wall. Whatever your lifestyle, a new home offers the opportunity to maximize the personal value of your home as well as your home investment.
3. Quality - New buildings are constructed with modern materials, and energy-conscious designs and heating systems. You know who the builder is, so you can ask questions directly. A new home also includes a warranty to provide the assurance that your home meets all of the current seismic standards, building safety codes, and accessibility requirements. By investing in regular maintenance, you can avoid costly repairs for years to come.
4. Indoor Environment - Buying a new home also means you don't have to be concerned with mold what may be lurking behind your finished walls, or the last renovation. A new home provides clean air quality and you know what you're getting without surprises.
