Top Benefits of Buying a New Construction Home

New Construction Homes on the Treasure Coast

Posted on: February 18, 2019

Homebuyers: what kind of home do you want to buy? You may have thought of location, or what you envision it to look like, but have you decided between purchasing a new home and getting a resale? There’s a big difference between the two, and selecting the right one can change a lot about your home buying experience. See why buying a new home can benefit you in more ways than one!

It’s Already the Way You Love

Homebuyers have to accept the work of an older home, or pay tons of money to change it. As fun as those home renovation shows make it look, it can be quite a challenge! With the purchase of a new home, you can personalize it to your liking – change the color of the backsplash and material of the countertops to enjoy a more universal color scheme, or update the finishes and handles to introduce a unique element into a room.

No Extra Work

One feature that homebuyers find invaluable when they purchase a new home is, they don’t have to do much extra work in designing, building, or modifying. Time is money, especially when you’re purchasing a home. You have to meet certain deadlines, while working with your own internal desire to move in as quickly as possible. What homebuyers love about buying a new home is that there’s no extra work on their end to do, whether that’s redesigning, redecorating, or remodeling completely. All they have to do is kick back, relax, and enjoy their new house.

Energy Efficiency

Today’s home technology features everything from dishwashers that moderate how much water that they use, to light bulbs that use less energy, to air conditioners that can change the temperature according to preset conditions. From homebuilding materials to intuitive and energy saving appliances, it’s cheaper, safer, and far more convenient to buy a new home equipped with the newest features than it is to update an older home.

New Neighborhoods

One of the best benefits of buying a new construction home, is it’s location in a newly constructed neighborhood. The neighborhood will have modern design aesthetics, such as gates at the front of the community for privacy and peace of mind. It will also host amenities that appeal to modern tastes, and will be located nearby services and amenities that are relevant to today’s homebuyer. Rivella by GroundStone Homes has the unique feature of being constructed from architecture of a previously established neighborhood. This allows it to integrate a great location with amazing amenities while saving on time and energy spent constructing the neighborhood.

Whether it’s your first home or your fifth, purchasing a new home is an exciting step to take in your life. It can also be one of the busiest steps, especially when you have to consider everything from location to features to even the neighborhood amenities. Homebuyers have their own solutions for making the process easier on themselves, but one of the best ways to do such is to pick the best neighborhood builders to work with.

One hidden gem you may want to check out is Rivella. This gated community by GroundStone Homes rests on the edge of the St Lucie River where it comes together with the North Fork, offering residents easy access to all of the activities that come along with waterfront living – not to mention some stunning views. Community amenities include a pool and clubhouse, tennis, and walking trails meandering throughout the neighborhood, so residents can connect with nature. Your new home will be ideally located just a short drive to some of the area’s best golf, beaches and entertainment as well as dozens of historic sites, parks and museums where you’ll learn about the area’s rich history.

Homes at Rivella will range in size from 3 to 6 bedrooms, and all homes will have either a preserve or estuary view. Select home sites are available directly on the river, some with an option for a private dock. Signature series homes start in the low $300s, and Estate homes are priced from the mid $500s to over $1 million, with custom floor plan options.
