Why Buy New? Top 7 Reasons

The real estate market in Colorado has been heating up alongside the weather this year. Finding a home and making a winning offer has become a challenging prospect! Why not bypass the stress of it all and instead buy new? This path to homeownership has priceless advantages. Here are just a few:

Design Your Dream Home


Floor plan

Your home’s layout should complement your lifestyle. From the number of bedrooms to the location of the laundry room, these elements are customizable to meet the needs of your family when you choose to build a new home. Desire one-level living? A spacious open-concept ranch may be right for you. Need room to grow? A two-story floor plan with an optional finished basement or loft space might fit the bill.


When you buy new, you have the opportunity to select the finishes that you’ve dreamed of for your home. Granite countertops? Gourmet appliances? Plush carpeting? Sleek tile? The choice is yours. Best of all, you’ll have access to interior design specialists who will help you coordinate complementary options.

Low-Maintenance Living

Want a home that is constructed of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance so you can instead spend your precious time enjoying an authentic Colorado lifestyle? Of course you do! This is a major benefit of buying new.


Looking for a comfortable living environment, with even temperatures and high indoor air quality? Today’s stringent energy standards and codes make this possible. Builders such as Berkeley Homes meet (and often exceed!) these industry standards. New homes combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration, and their superior craftsmanship ensures draft-free comfort year-round.


Ready for ultimate energy efficiency? Today’s new homes offer cost and energy savings that surpass those of homes built just five years ago. Many new homes, including those from Berkeley, come standard with:

  • A brand-new energy-efficient furnace
  • Programmable thermostats
  • New, highly efficient vinyl low-e windows
  • And more!

Peace of Mind


Home warranty

Unlike a used home, which may need repairs or replacements, a new home—and the products that comprise it—is brand-new and under warranty. Big-ticket components like the roof, appliances, the water heater and HVAC, windows are all covered, from day one. Now that’s peace of mind and pocketbook protection!

Safety features

Breathe easier and keep your family safer when you buy new. New builds feature state-of-the-art circuit breakers and high-efficiency furnaces and air conditioners that use the latest environmentally friendly coolants. Finishes such as carpets and paints contain fewer volatile organic compounds than those found in older homes.

Community Amenities

When you buy new, you also reap the benefits associated with new communities. Amenities such as trails, parks, convenient shopping and dining options, and neighborhood schools are just a few of the many perks potentially available to residents in growing communities.

Modern Technology

It’s no secret that technology is advancing at breakneck speed. Buying new ensures your home is capable of delivering the lifestyle you expect in today’s ever-connected world. Want a smart home? Updated electrical wiring is a must. Construction technology such as double-paned windows and blown-in insulation also contribute to an enhanced lifestyle.

With so many advantages to buying new, the reasons to do so seem never-ending. How would a new build benefit your family’s lifestyle?
