Don’t settle for someone else’s version of YOUR dream home! Why buy used when you can personalize your very own Schaeffer Home? We build new homes in NJ that allow you to create your ideal home without having to make do with someone else’s choices. There are a wide range of benefits to buying a brand new home.

When it comes to buying a new-to-you home, you’re likely to make a list – even just mentally – of what you want in your new home. The usual things, such as the number of bedrooms, the layout, and the neighborhood will be part of your considerations, as well as access to things in your daily life and the local school district. Some things will be must-haves, while others you’ll be more flexible about, depending on the rest of the home. And that’s where a brand new home makes a difference. You’re less likely to have to settle when it comes to buying a brand new home.

As well as getting the features you want in your own home, you’ll find that newly built homes are designed from the start to appeal to today’s buyers with open layouts, kitchens that are more than just a place to cook, and flex rooms that can serve as a home office, a play room, or whatever else you need to live comfortably.

One reason people give for not buying new houses is the thought that they’re too expensive. The reality is that while a new home may cost more initially, you can save more money with it from the start because you don’t have the same costly maintenance issues that you’d have in an older home. What others pay on renovations or replacement, you’re saving, helping you rebuild your financial nest egg. Plus, new homes are often under some form of warranty, giving you further peace of mind.

As well as the reduction in maintenance costs, you’re likely to have lower energy bills. New homes are built to higher standards and requirements, including making homes more energy efficient. New appliances, the building process, the type of windows, and even some smarthome technology are part of new homes that keep you comfortable all year long and save you money in the process.

As you see, there are a lot of benefits – in comfort and financially – to purchasing a new home. Even if you choose a move-in-ready home instead of one you build from the ground up, you’ll still find that the home more easily meets the wants and needs of today’s home buyer. Plus, if you do choose to build, you get exactly the home you want, down to colors, finishes, and flooring. Certainly when you build with Schaeffer Homes, you will appreciate the standard options, as well as the luxury add-ons that are available to truly put your personal stamp on the home.
