There are a lot of perks to buying a newly built home. The pre-sale home inspection is typically a breeze. With new modern plumbing, roofing, and climate control you don’t have to worry about large maintenance expenses. You’re starting fresh.  Just like when purchasing a car, new homes come with an extensive home warranty. 

Modern construction means that you’ll be getting the highest efficiency ratings for your home. This is a major pro for homebuyers who are eco-conscious… or who are just looking to stay cool in the summer.

A new, modern design gives you a blank pallet to personalize your home… without the headache of tearing up shag carpet or smoothing out popcorn ceilings.

Oh— and a bonus?

You’ll move in feeling confident there are no ghosts in your home. There’s no chance of skeletons in the closet. We’re just kidding (kind of).

New homes are appealing in many ways. Especially for first-time buyers who would like to enter the property ladder without the financial stress of major maintenance overhauls. There are some seriously awesome brand-new neighborhoods in Madison.

 Here are some of our favorites:

  1. Grandview Commons

This Veridian Homes neighborhood recently won the “Next Generation Neighborhood Award”. Grandview certainly has a grand vision. They wanted to build a brand new community… that had all the charm of an older neighborhood. They wanted to bring back the “golden years” of the suburbs. When neighbors know each other by name and front porches are always occupied on sunny days. They have achieved this in a few different ways:

  • All garages are located in the rear of the home.
  • Front porches are shady and comfortable.
  • Greenspace and landscaping are abundant and lush.
  • Housing options are available for all ages and income levels.
