Home builders in Ocala or prospective homeowners may have many reasons for opting to build a newer home rather than buy a much older, existing home. We chose to build a new home to have the option of designing every aspect of our dream home exactly the way we wanted. With a new home, we have complete control of floor plans, room layout, and room flow. Building a new home from scratch gave us home buyers the opportunity to have all appliances brand new and covered by warranties. If something goes wrong or something gets broken, the warranties protect our investment. With the warranty as a back-up, we new homeowners know that help should only be a phone call away.
We wanted to buy a new home for that new home feeling. Most people building their own homes to their own tastes feel better knowing they are the first occupants. They look forward to raising their families in the home and possibly growing old together in it. Knowing something you helped create will be forever yours is one of the best feelings you can have.
When buying an older home, the smart home buyer should have a list of considerations. Termites and other insects can be very serious problems. Termite damage is such a huge matter, homeowners cannot sell their homes until termite damage is repaired. Lead contamination is another possible deal breaker when considering an older home. Lead in old paint and pipes can lead to brain damage in adults and children, and can cause miscarriages in pregnant women.
All these issues are avoided by building your own home. Though a new home brings its own challenges, it will be less of a headache than purchasing an existing home with its unpredictable problems. In your new Ocala home, you will be the first to live in, and make memories within, its walls.
