The process of building your home is entirely different than buying a used home. There are numerous advantages to building … for example, things like using more cost-efficient products and materials, customizing the home to fit your lifestyle, and avoiding bidding wars over limited inventory of used homes are significant advantages according to our new homeowners.

Let’s dig into some of the biggest advantages of new home construction in Kansas City:

In a New Home, Everything is Brand New and Under Warranty

Unlike a used home, everything is brand new and covered under Elevate Design + Build’s one-year builder warranty. A 2-10 home warranty (2-year mechanical warranty and a 10-year structural warranty) further protects your investment from costly repairs should you need them. Plus, home appliances and equipment like water heaters, furnaces, and even roof shingles are brand new — providing the latest in energy efficiency and big cost savings on your household utility bills.

New Construction Homes Offer Better Indoor Comfort and Air Quality

Enjoy state-of-the-art ventilation, filtration, along with consistent indoor temperatures. In-home air quality has been a hot topic in recent years as more and more people began to work from home. With COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to have clean, fresh air. No need for expensive duct cleaning when your ductwork is brand new!

Energy Efficient Cost Savings

According to the Department of Energy, a new home today is 30% more energy-efficient than a home built just five years ago. You can save hundreds of dollars each year living in a new home. Houses today are constructed from the beginning with the newest, most energy-efficient windows. Additionally, new furnaces, air conditioning systems, and heat pumps are far more effective at maintaining the temperature throughout your home than the HVAC systems of the past.

New Homes Offer Advanced Technology and Smart Technology

Newly built homes come complete with the latest and most innovative tech products that used homes just don’t have. These products like programmable thermostats, video doorbells, carbon monoxide detectors, and whole house surge protection keep your family and home safe, comfortable, and efficient.

With New Home Construction, You Can Design it Your Way!

Don’t settle for someone else’s left-over choices! Design your home your way, choose your floor plan, your finishes, appliances, countertops, flooring, cabinets, and more. No home remodeling needed!

Choose the Community That fits Your Lifestyle

New homes are typically built within new communities that have certain features and amenities you will not find in older communities. Some of the latest amenities include resort-style pools, splash parks, dog parks, playgrounds, clubhouses, ponds, lakes, walking or hiking trails, community firepits, and more.
