So, it’s time for a new home. Your current home just isn’t cutting it anymore: either issues arise constantly, you’re family has grown too big, you’re family has grown too small for it, or it is one of the thousands of other reasons people buy a new home.
As you drive around the jersey shore searching for homes for sale or looking at real estate listings on the internet, you’ll see a wide variety of shore homes: small, large, old, modern, new construction. During your quest, the question will undoubtedly come up: “should we build new?” Now, there is not one standard answer for every family but we can show you some of the benefits of building a new home.
Built Just For You
When building a new home, you have the pleasure of overseeing the entire building process of your home. You control, for the most part, where everything goes within your new home. Want a window in your kitchen so you can have a view of the Margate City beach while you do dishes? You can. Want extra low cabinets in your kitchen? You can.
You’ve created a unique life –shouldn’t your home be just as unique?

New Homes Are More Efficient
Thanks to updated building codes and advancements in products, new homes tend to be more energy efficient than their older counterparts. According to Newhomesource.com, new construction homes are up to 30% more efficient than homes built just 10 years ago. This increase in efficiency can lead to a significant decrease in your energy bills. There are benefits outside of the energy bill. With a more energy efficient home, you won’t get pockets of heat or cold in your home – which you’ll appreciate during the Jersey Shore’s sweltering summers or bitterly cold winters.
You Know What You’re Getting Into
When building a new home, you can be directly involved in the building process which means you’ll know what materials are being used and how the home is being built. This is a huge benefit because it means you won’t have to worry about any issues popping up shortly after your purchase. Although real estate agents are upfront about issues within the home, there could be issues they may not be aware of. With a home you’ve built, you know you’re getting the best.
The decision to either buy a pre-existing home or to use a new home builder to custom build your new home should be made after carefully weighing your options. Only you can know what is right for you.
