Why Millennials Should Consider New Construction Homes

July 12, 2021

As a young adult looking to buy a home, a newly-built property presents you with a distinct set of advantages over a previously-owned residence.  

When you purchase new, you have the ability to choose the layout, interior design and decor details that suit you best. Plus, you can enjoy the family-friendly aspects of a new community while taking advantage of a host of local amenities. New construction also allows homebuyers to participate in the growing trend of eco-friendly construction.

Choosing A New Construction Home Lets You Pick the Floor Plan You Want

If you are shopping for new homes near Lehi, UT, choosing a new home builder such as McArthur Homes allows you to pick a floor plan that suits the size of your family. This approach can also provide room for future growth if having children is a part of your plan. Rockwell Ranch Townhomes offers designs with three-to-five bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and open floor plans with plenty of interior room for growing families. Plus, a spacious two-car garage provides plenty of room for vehicles as well as extra storage for childrens’ toys, bicycles and seasonal decorations. 

Make Your New House Your Way

Purchasing a new property allows you to choose how your home will look and feel by working with the builder. This dynamic presents the unique opportunity to fine tune a home to suit your preferences rather than having to adapt to someone else’s design ideas. You can request specific paint color schemes that match your tastes while choosing a layout and number of bedrooms that match your lifestyle. In addition, you can take advantage of customizable options such as specially designed rooms to be used as family recreational areas, home offices or guest bedrooms. This option can also be applied to the configuration of powder rooms, mud rooms, walk-in closets, owner suite bathrooms and more.

No Costly Repairs or Renovations

Looking for a home that’s ready to move in is a huge task in itself. When looking at new construction homes, they are ready to move in (after they are built that is). There is no need for remodeling, upgrades or repairs. Those things are years and years away.

Enjoy the Amenities of The Area

New homes in the Lehi, UT area feature ground-level mud rooms for cleaning up after an outdoor adventure. The region offers year-round hiking, fishing, camping and mountain biking at the nearby Wasatch Mountain Range and the Alpine Loop. Plus, the Rockwell Ranch Townhomes community is located near the I-15 junction at Pioneer Crossing — a major travel route facilitated by the Diverging Diamond Interchange. The community offers plenty of outside play space, a clubhouse and an outdoor pool. The area is also home to quality educational institutions at all learning levels including Brigham Young and Utah Valley Universities. 

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Modern building materials and state-of-the-art finishing techniques allow new home buyers to make an eco-friendly contribution. Newer heating and air conditioning units help save energy while modern insulation and low-emittance (Low-E) windows help greatly reduce the loss of treated air, allowing less-frequent use of the furnace and AC systems. Plus, new home designs tend to maximize natural light. In addition to saving money, these energy-efficient features will conserve valuable resources.
