When buying a property, there are many options on the market but one main question remain: Should you buy an existing property or new construction?
There may seem to be some economic benefits to buying an existing home but considering some major expenses, such as renovations and energy costs, these benefits will often fade away in favor of a home built to the standards of today. Here are 4 reasons that justify the purchase of a new property:
1 - Customization
Buying new, is above all, a way of life because you can customize your interior to reflect who you are. Customizing the look of your home is a primary focus at Sotramont. The finishing choices, including flooring, countertops, and cabinets, give you freedom to create a space that you desire. Our design experts are available to advise you. We've paid special attention to every detail.
2 - Energy savings
New buildings implement the newest principles of construction, equipment and materials complying with the latest standards. Already, the Sotramont projects are designed to achieve high energy efficiency, thanks to a combination of factors: increased insulation, air-tightness and use of renewable energy; all factors that contribute to LEED certification.
3 - Resale value
Homes built by Sotramont always aim for LEED certification. This attention to detail provides the building with an unmatched durability which minimizes the maintenance required over the years. In addition to the maintenance, one great advantage of a LEED building is that the quality of the construction and materials greatly reduce the energy bill. At the time of resale, LEED is therefore a sought after certification to assure the buyer that the dwelling and landscaping have been designed to the highest standards of the industry, which normally justifies a higher price.
4 - Optimized space
Buying new assures living in a completely functional space that is well designed to avoid any unnecessary square footage. Right from the start, architects are working hard to develop concepts that optimize your home, because space is so precious. Another feature of buying new is the special treatment given to balconies and terraces. These outdoor spaces, often furnished, turn into real living rooms.
