Four Reasons for Buying a Home in El Paso in 2019
Even though it has been a decade after the 2008 prime mortgage crisis home buying still gives some people the shivers. That’s because, after that, home buying got a bit of a bad rap and even scared some people off. The truth is that the market has significantly changed and stabilized since then. Today, home buying is a great opportunity to achieve the American Dream. The Dream is not just about the white picket fence, but about the security and stability that a home can bring a family. Here at Santana Homes, we are dedicated to building our client’s dreams, but we know that for many homeownership can be a scary venture. So here are four reasons why buying a new home might just be for you.
The last few years in El Paso have seen quite a bit of development and growth. This is another reason why the city of El Paso is a great place to build a home and to raise a family. Crime continues to stay low, house prices down, and economic opportunities arise.
- Customization. When designing your own home or buying new, you can really control how much space and how to arrange your own space. This means that your home fits your lifestyle and is the right size and the right fit. When working with a custom home builder, you can decide the kind of space you want and furnish it the way you see fit.
- Little maintenance. One of the biggest immediate incentives for buying new is how little home maintenance you will be doing right off the bat. Purchasing a home that is a decade or more old will likely come with its leaks and wear and tear. This means that you’ll likely have to start putting in some repair funds right away.
- Energy efficiency. This is no secret. New homes have a much better energy efficiency prospect and will save a lot of money immediately and in the long run. This also means that construction, materials, and appliances are already built with the modern world in mind, so you won’t have to invest in installing energy-efficient windows, HVAC, etc.
- Build your wealth. The great thing about buying a home is that you are investing in assets that will be worth in the future. Especially a new home that is beautifully designed and has many of today’s most sought after amenities. So while it is an initial investment, you are building wealth rather than throwing money around in rent every month.
Buy New, Build Wealth, and Live Happy
Homeownership is responsibility, but it is also a feeling of great freedom to know that what you are paying for is yours. When designing your own home, this is even more true, since most of the bigger decisions about the design and layout of the home are made by you. When buying a new home, you are putting your money in something tangible that will build your wealth and protect your family for years to come.
