Frequently Asked Questions for New Home Buyers

Buying a new home is an incredibly exciting adventure. It’s also one that can be scary at times! At Santana Homes, we want all our clients to feel as confident as possible when they’re making the decision to buy a new home. A home is much more than just four walls and a roof. Your new home will be where you and your family will grow. We want to help you make the best decision possible. For this reason, we’ve compiled some answers to common, frequently asked questions we get from those who are buying new homes. And, as always, if you have any more questions, please feel free to contact Santana Homes! We’d be happy to help clear anything up so you can feel as confident as possible with your decision.

Should I Buy New or Old?

This question will more than likely be the first one that comes to mind. On one hand, older homes cost less. On the other, new homes are built with modern practices and will last longer. In the long run, new homes are a much better investment. When buying a new home from Santana Homes, you can choose to purchase a pre built home or you can let us build you a brand new home. Our floorplans are unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else. Nothing compares to the feeling of walking into your very own home. You won’t have to worry about appliances not working or any construction issues. New homes are simply better than older ones!

What Size Is Best?

This all depends on the size of your family and how much you expect your family to grow. At Santana Homes, you’ll have the option of choosing between single or two-story homes. We also have a variety of floorplans to suit your desired room size needs. Since this will be your home for the foreseeable future, it’s best to look ahead and plan accordingly. Perhaps a four bedroom home would work great now (master bedroom for you and your spouse, a room for your first child, a guest room and an office) and then if you and your spouse decide on growing your family, the office can be turned into another bedroom! The best way to answer this question is to think about where you’ll see yourself and your family in the next five or ten years.

What Should I Look Out for When Buying a New Home?

New homes tend to come with warranties. When you choose Santana Homes, you will receive many important warranties that translate to peace of mind! Our 2-10 year warranty, 1-year builder warranty, and 2-year roof warranty all work together for you to feel as confident as possible. If anything goes wrong within the allotted timeframe, we’ll make it right! In addition to this, you should also make sure the home is, in fact, a good home! Don’t let a pretty design fool you. Ask questions about the materials used. All Santana Homes are EnergyStar Certified, meaning they’re made to help keep energy costs down. When you choose Santana Homes, you get the best of the best.
