The Benefits Of Buying a New Custom-Built Home

Why should you consider buying a new home over an already lived-in house?

There are many benefits. With Paragon Homes, custom builders, you can design your dream home, the way you want it! You can choose based on your personal tastes and preferences, so that it will all be your own style. From hardware, to flooring, countertops, cabinets, and more, it will definitely reflect YOU.

In addition to decorative touches, you can choose the kind of floor plan that will suit you and your family. Moving into a pre-existing home means that you are stuck with whatever floor plan and layout is already in place – unless you want to invest time and money into doing home renovations, some of which can become major undertakings.

New homes – especially those built by Paragon – are more energy-efficient than older homes, so you’ll be saving on energy costs, up to 40% or more depending on the homes you are comparing. This can be especially important as we approach another Pittsburgh winter.

Appliances and air conditioning, heat, and windows will not need replaced as soon when buying brand-new. New houses have better indoor air quality, lower maintenance, and advanced designs. They also often feature the latest technology and the utmost in safety.

A brand-new house also means that your home will be under warranty, and will be fresh, clean, and all yours! You’ll have that new-home feel for much longer, and it will all reflect your dreams and your choices. The comfort, quality, and style will be a collaborative effort between you and Paragon – you won’t be living in someone ELSE’S dream home.
