With over 25 years of experience in building phenomenal new homes across the Richmond area, Main Street Homes understands how important it is to browse through all of your options before making the big decision to invest in your new-construction home. It’s essential to know what type of home would be the most beneficial for you—and there are some incredible advantages that come along with buying a new-construction home that everyone should know about. To guide your decision in buying a new home, we’ve compiled an expert list of top reasons why buying new—especially from Main Street Homes Homes—is the best option.

Lower maintenance

It’s no secret that maintenance and repairs tend to be necessary on previously-owned “resale” homes, as many older houses have experienced years of wear and tear with outdated styles, materials and features. Although the cost to buy older homes may appear to be lower, there are so many factors that are unaccounted for, especially in the repairs and maintenance categories. 

To help yourself save money, time and energy in the long run—buying new is undoubtedly an option worth considering. At Main Street Homes, our homes feature top-quality appliances and name-brand products. The new-and-improved features allow for a significant amount of energy efficiency compared to older homes, and our homes come with a new home warranty for your peace of mind. At Main Street Homes, all we ask is for you to love your new home!

Invest in your future

As of lately, rent prices have drastically increased throughout the entire nation—especially in the RVA area, where rent has pracitcally skyrocketed in some areas. Many can’t afford an unreasonably expensive monthly rental and believe the common misconception that buying a new home is unattainable or unrealistic. The truth is—buying a new home with Main Street Homes is far from either one of those things, and we make it our mission to make buying a new home a seamless, easy process with an array of financial benefits.

When you choose to buy a new home rather than rent, you’re investing in your future by increasing your financial stability—specifically in the categories of building wealth and equity, as well as better tax benefits and an overall thoughtful decision for your future. At Main Street Homes, we know that financing a new home can be an intimidating concept—but with our reliable preferred lenders, we can easily help find the best financing options that suit your needs. Eliminate the high risk of increased rent payments and the financial limitations of renting by choosing to buy a new home from Main Street Homes—which is an extremely beneficial decision in both the present and future.
