Are you looking to move but aren’t sure if it’s better to buy a home in an established community or a new one? There are numerous benefits to owning a property in a recently developed neighbourhood. Find out all the perks of living in a brand new community right here.
Everything Is New
Of course, one of the biggest advantages of moving into a new community or a newly expanded community is that everything will be brand new. From the onsite playground equipment and light fixtures to the roads and paved trails, to the stores and sometimes even the schools – it will all be recently installed, paved and designed. And you’ll be among the first to enjoy it.
You Have More Options
Do you want a home that backs onto a playground or green space? Or maybe you prefer a corner lot. If you’re one of the first buyers in a new community, you will have far more options to choose from when it comes to your lot size and location than if you were to buy a resale home. The sooner you buy, the more choice you will have. You will also have more control over the design and customizations of the home. You’ll get to choose between the different floor plan options, pick out the colours and finishes you prefer, and even upgrade some of the features to truly personalize the home to suit your needs.
The Schools Are Not Overcrowded
Well established neighbourhoods are restricted and cannot build new schools when the population rises. Many of these older schools are also run down and lack the latest upgrades, especially when it comes to technology. Newer communities don’t have this problem. They are purpose-built to accommodate the growing number of children in the area. This way, there won’t be any issues with meeting the demand for new schools. This equates to smaller class sizes and more attention from their teachers. New schools are also built with the latest facilities, modern HVAC systems, updated playground structures and state-of-the-art equipment.
Better Lifestyle for Residents
New communities are built with much consideration towards sustainability, fuel expenses, access to resources, the effects of rapid urbanization and the impacts on our wellbeing. They reduce commute times and provide easy access to the nearest amenities and necessary resources. Further, newer communities are designed to incorporate communities that create a better lifestyle for residents. That means more parks and green spaces, available services and amenities on-site, maintained trails for year-round use, and homes that meet more modern lifestyles.
More Value for Your Money
If you’re one of the first to buy in a new community, you’ll likely enjoy a lower purchase price over older neighbourhoods as things will still be in the development stage. But once the area becomes fully established, the value will tick upwards, providing you with a solid return on your investment.
Each new community offers something slightly different than the rest. Where one may offer bigger homes ideal for families, the next one over might have an abundance of natural elements that attract the outdoor enthusiasts, followed by amenity-rich hubs that are targeted to young professionals. Moving into a new community that best suits your lifestyle often means that many of your new neighbours will also share the same values and interests. This makes it much easier to meet new friends and develop long-lasting relationships within your community.
When you buy into a new community, you can enjoy a new, turnkey home that is move-in ready with all the latest appliances, fixtures, roofing materials, HVAC equipment and finishes included. There’s no painful construction or renovations needed.
