The Benefits of Buying a New Home in FloridaJune 22, 2021
Narrowing your housing search to new homes in Florida has plenty of benefits. Here are some of the reasons you should consider investing in new construction.
When you buy an older home, you never quite know when something needs to be upgraded or repaired. A couple of examples include major upgrades, such as the air conditioning unit or home rewiring.
On top of it all, there could be damage from previous owners that the inspector could have overseen, and you don’t notice until long after you move in. Avoid the headache and look for new homes in Florida.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Old homes are notorious for having energy efficiency issues which are both harmful to the environment and your pocket. Instead of spending your resources on replacing single-pane windows and re-insulating your home, buy a new home that is already equipped with high-performing technology, so you don’t have to worry about wasting energy.
When you buy a new home in Babcock Ranch, you’ll also find other energy-efficient options, like:
- Tight construction and ducts
- Efficient natural heating and cooling equipment (like porches, raised foundations, and ceiling fans)
- Energy-saving lighting and appliance
- Programmable thermostats that let you control the heating and cooling of your home remotely during different times of the day
Better yet, not only will your home be energy efficient, but you can also expect it to be water-conscious. All our homes offer water conservation through native and low-impact landscaping, reclaimed water irrigation, and WaterSense® compliant fixtures.
The Latest Technology
Technology changes fast, and old homes leave a lot to be desired in terms of fast internet, smart home technology, and sustainable advancements. At Babcock Ranch, your home will be outfitted with the fastest residential internet speeds in the U.S., smart home technologies, and solar energy technology. We pride ourselves on having cutting-edge technology integrated into our homes that you cannot expect to find even in other new homes in Florida.
