In a market that continues to favor sellers, homebuyers face the daunting task of finding a home to suit their family’s needs despite low inventory levels. This means more often than not, buyers are settling for a home they are pressured into purchasing although the home might not necessarily be the best fit for their lifestyle. There is a better alternative than settling for less than you deserve – it’s building a new home with local Jacksonville home builder Artisan Homes.
When comparing the benefits of purchasing an existing property to building a new home, new home construction far exceeds the former. Whether you choose to build in one of Artisan Homes’ seven communities throughout Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Fleming Island, Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, (ranging from the $500’s to $800’s) or you prefer a custom home on your own lot, each option provides the opportunity for unlimited customization and dedicated professionals to make your housing dreams a reality. Homebuyers will appreciate the complete control they possess over designing their home to be exactly what they desire. Building a home from the ground up provides a level of contentment that is priceless.
Buying a new home in Northeast Florida is one of the largest investments you will ever make, and many homeowners are under the impression that they will save money by purchasing an existing home. Think twice! Older homes will generally have more wear and tear, which translates into more maintenance and replacements. Remodeling projects such as a minor kitchen remodel or a roof replacement can each cost an upwards of $20,000. After everything is all said and done, additional replacements and renovations completed after the sale on an existing property can quickly add up to be costlier than building a new Artisan Home. Another perk of building a new home is the warranties that come along with it. With Artisan Homes, your new home comes with unparalleled protection. As a Centricity® member, Artisan Homes provides every home it builds with 10 full years of structural home warranty protection from the nation’s leading home warranty company. Also included is two full years of systems surety coverage against defects in wiring, piping, and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating, and mechanical systems, and one full year of surety coverage against defects in workmanship and materials.
Another major advantage to building a new home in Northeast Florida, is the advancements in energy codes that now make use of better HVAC, insulation and air filtration standards. This increase in efficiency is not only beneficial for the environment but also saves homeowners money on their monthly utility bills. And, no one wants to throw money down the drain on wasted energy, right? In addition to building a more sustainable home through “green” appliances and fixtures, a new home is less likely to have the health concerns or toxic materials (asbestos, lead paint and mold) when compared to an older home.
