New Versus Old! The ultimate home-buying showdown!

As a home buyer, getting ready to enter the market or a seller looking to sell and upgrade your property.

It is important to consider all of your options before making a decision.

Hi and welcome to my video I'm Isabel Guzman at 1 Acre Plus Homes here in New Braunfels.

I specialize in helping sellers and buyers with 1Acre Plus Homes. That's right! New construction versus existing homes. Which one will come out on top?

Let's start with the new builds. The primary advantage of buying a new build is that you get to own the brand new never living home that is customized to your specifications often you get to choose the floor plan appliances and all of the finishes you can also take advantage of energy efficient builder options saving you money on your utility bill over time and more often than not the Builder will offer some great buying incentives

Now, let's talk about existing homes the biggest advantage of buying an existing home is that you can see exactly what you're getting.

You can walk through the rooms inspect the plumbing and electrical systems and get a feel of the neighborhood.

Existing homes have established yards and landscaping so you don't have to wait for trees and shrubs to grow. Additionally, existing homes are in established neighborhoods again giving a sense of community. Next, let's look at costs. It is essential to consider the purchase price and ongoing expenses.

New construction may have a higher purchase price sometimes but more efficient appliances and reduced maintenance cost.

Existing homes may have a lower purchase price but require more upgrades and repairs which can add to the cost bottom line if you're are planning to explore either option it is best to consult an experience real estate agent if you're thinking about buying or selling a home give me a call I'm always happy to help!
