Buying New vs Buying Used

Andalucia at The Domininon, 6314 Sevilla Circle, 78257

If provided with a choice, few of us would ever choose to move into someone else’s dream home. We prefer to build our ultimate design filled with every detail we ever imagined. You get to pick the materials, colors and decor to make your home exactly what you want, rather than accepting what someone else has chosen. Let’s dive into the advantages of a new home…


New homes come with some of the design elements that today’s lifestyle demands: open, eat-in kitchens, walk-in closets, and large master baths to name a few. Used homes often have very low ceilings, smaller closets, smaller bathrooms and weren’t designed with the latest livability trends for families today.


New Homes are on average 30% more efficient than homes built only 10 years ago. When built with “current” building codes and standards your new home will be more efficient and safer for you and your family. Spend less on heating and air due to effective levels of wall, floor and attic insulation, comprehensive air barrier details, high-performance, and “Low E” windows. Monthly savings could amount to hundreds per year, according to ENERGY STAR®.


Some home buyers think a used home will give them a better deal. What many fail to account for is costs that accrue after you buy a used home to fix it up to better suit your needs. While you may get what seems like a deal on a used home, you may end up paying more than you would have had you bought new. The costs to replace key appliances, the roof, or anything else in house, worn out or too old, could add up quickly.


Your new home, and the products within it, are brand new and under warranty. Replacing your roof or appliances will not be on your radar for a very long time. Buying a new home involves a myriad of choices and decisions. By approaching the building process systematically and continuously improving systems home after home, we can assure customer satisfaction is not a hit-or-miss proposition but a certainty every time with The McNair Experience™.
