If you're in the market for a new home, have you considered buying a brand new home?

Not only do you get a home that's reflects your personal tastes and preferences, you'll also find energy efficient, modern floor plans in a better neighborhood than you ever could have imagined…. All for an excellent value! Don't miss the 10 reasons why you should buy a brand new home.

1. Competitive Pricing

Compare prices of existing homes to those of comparably-sized new homes! Darwin is home to many homebuilders, both big and small, who are competing for your business. When builders compete, you benefit. And most home owners looking to sell their existing homes cannot offer the incentives or attractive financing options builders can.

2. Choices

When shopping among existing homes, buyers have to take the previous owners' style into consideration. Do you pay even more to redecorate or do you make do with someone else's choices? A new home, however, provides you with numerous design, color and material options. Having the luxury to tailor a home to your tastes can be one of the greatest features of buying a new home.

3. New Home Warranties

New home buyers are assured at least a one-year warranty on the home itself and, in most cases, components such as major appliances and windows may have further coverage periods provided by their manufacturers. And in the Northern Territory, homebuilders are required to guarantee the home to be free of structural defects for a full 6 years! That means new home buyers are assured quality construction in their new homes! There's no second-guessing the work a previous owner might have done (or not done!).

4. Home Location

Location, location, location. Not only do new home buyers get to choose which beautiful new home community they want to live in, they also get to select their individual unit or home site within that community. Would you prefer your bedroom get morning sun or afternoon sun? Would you prefer to live near the park or on a cul-de-sac?

5. Convenient Financing

In today's market, securing financing for home ownership can be tedious and stressful. Abode New Homes has simplified this process by partnering with TIO, Easy Loans and other brokers in order to help get the most competitive rates and appropriate financing package for you.

6. Low Maintenance

Why worry about upgrading or constantly maintaining your home if you don't have to? Abode New Homes uses the latest and greatest materials that technology can offer. The result? New homes are virtually maintenance-free for many years.

7. Floor Plans

Never thought about the convenience of modern floor plans? Take a tour of many existing homes and you'll find bad layouts and wasted or unusable space. New home buyers, however, have a variety of modern layouts and styles to choose from that are suitable to any family.

8. Energy Efficiency

New homebuilders are required by law to meet stricter energy codes than in the past, which benefits YOU, the consumer. This is an enormous cost-saving benefit when considering the costs of fuel and energy today. Many existing homes were built when energy codes were either more lenient or nonexistent.

9. Modern Applicances

Appliance manufacturers introduce new models every year and homebuilders are able to offer the latest state-of-the-art equipment at the time of completing a new home. And, because Abode new Homes buys for the entire production of new home, the purchasing power often reduces the buyers' costs.

10. Appreciation

The typical home needs remodeling after 25-30 years. Since new homes have an assured longer life, appraisals are generally higher than on comparable existing homes. That means new homes will likely sell for a higher value in the future.

Our house started at the same time as our neighbour. We have had a dream run, moved in early and would build with Abode again. Our neighbour doesn't have the same feelings for their builder."
