Advantages of Building a New Home


The housing market has remained fairly strong over the past year and mortgage interest rates are still low, making it a good time to consider buying a new home. While the number of pre-existing homes on the market is low, that’s actually a great incentive to work with Crary Real Estate, a home builder in Grand Forks ND. By building your own home, you can get a home that truly meets your personal needs and wants.

One of the perks of building a new home is the option of finding the ideal location. Schools, work, amenities, entertainment, nature, and more are all factors that people consider when choosing where they want to live. Crary has home lots in a variety of communities, such as Autumn Woods, Prairiewood, LeClerc/Peyton’s Place Addition and others, where you can find a great community located to suit your personal preferences. There are typically a variety of lot styles and sizes to help you find just what you’re looking for in your new homesite.

One factor that people don’t often take into consideration when building a new home is the ability to create a home that is energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and ultimately easier on your wallet when it comes to paying energy bills. New homes typically include Energy Star-rated appliances that are more efficient and start saving you money from day one. The more energy-saving options you include, the lower your average energy costs each month, resulting in serious savings over the years.

With more new homes being built to incorporate the latest in new home construction trends, as well as new home technology options, your home will be appealing for much longer than older homes that would require serious updates to get up to speed. With more people looking for integrated smarthome technology, building a new home allows you to start from day one with the technology you need. You can include security systems that can be viewed and controlled with an app, but you can also install thermometers that can easily be programmed or changed — even when you’re away from home — to use less energy when you’re away, but warm up or cool down just in time for you to arrive home.

New homes may cost a little more to build, depending on various features, but in the long run, they will save you money. You’re less likely to have any major repairs, thanks to new construction from a reputable builder, and with the energy-saving appliances and technology, you’re saving money right away. To top it all off, new homes should come with a warranty, giving you peace of mind that should something go wrong, you’re covered. You typically have to pay extra for that with a pre-owned home.

The icing in on the cake of building a new home is the opportunity to design it to your personal tastes. Flooring, wall colors, bathroom tiles, showers, tubs, floor plans and more can all be chosen or fine tuned to meet your specific needs. If you find yourself in need of a quiet home office these days, Crary Real Estate will work with you to find you the home floor plan that meets that need. If you want yard space for the kids to be able to play outdoors safely, we’ll help you find the ideal lot. Whatever your reasons for wanting to buy a new home, turn to a home builder in Grand Forks ND, like Crary Real Estate, to help you find your ideal home.
