Why Buy New

New homes offer a whole range of advantages that are simply not available in a resale property. For many home buyers, the choice between a resale home and a brand new home is easy. Below are some of the reasons that have convinced others to buy new.

High-quality construction

The technology of home building has improved tremendously over the past few decades and new homes are built better than ever before. They are solidly constructed and well designed for today's lifestyles. They are highly energy efficient, with excellent indoor air quality. From heating systems to roofing and windows, today's building products work better, last longer and often look better. The result is a brand new home that is far more comfortable and healthier, easier to maintain and more enjoyable to live in.

Warranty

Resale homes simply do not come with a comprehensive warranty. If something goes wrong, you have to deal with it, there and then, no matter what it costs. Buying a new home, on the other hand, offers peace of mind. Berstan Homes stand behind their work with an after-sales service program and a comprehensive warranty.

You know what you get

With a new home, there are no surprises when you move in. You know how the house was built, what went into it and what is hidden behind the walls. You also know exactly how to operate and maintain your home's systems and equipment. If you have questions later Berstan Homes will be there to give you a helpful and accurate answer.

You get what you want

Why live with other people's taste in interior decoration? Why spend the next few years redoing the previous owners' home improvements when you can get what you want from the very start? From layout and design to cabinets and carpets, berstan Homes offer a wide selection of standard and up-grade options. You can pick and choose what suits your own lifestyle, personality and budget.

You know the builder

In the end, the quality of your home depends on the quality of your builder. When you buy a new home, you also buy the company's reputation, its track record with past clients and its commitment to customers. With berstan Homes, that adds up to extra confidence and reassurance for you.

Well-designed communities

New developments are designed to foster a spirit of neighbourliness by carefully balancing private and public areas. Increasingly, attractive facades, entrances and porches present an open and welcoming aspect towards the street, while garages are located at the side or even the back of homes. Walkways and bike paths meander through developments, well placed playgrounds and parks keep youngsters safely occupied. "Neo-classical" developments are now appearing that reflect villages of days gone by, with homes close to the required services, a "commons" area-some with a gazebo, a barbeque area or clock tower-and village stores to serve the community. These developments are attracting a lot of interest from both builders and consumers.

You know what your housing costs will be

This allows you to budget properly and with confidence-great news for first-time homebuyers. With today's low interest rates and competitive housing prices, home ownership need not cost any more than what you spend on rent.

Stamp Duty

Stamp Duty is an unfortunate reality when buying a home, however when buying a new home the stamp duty is significantly reduced. If you are a first home buyer the benefits of buying a new home are even more substantial. This means a huge saving for anyone buying a new home.
