To everyday homebuyers, buying WV and PA new homes often has more benefits than buying an older home including receiving a warranty, having the security of today’s building codes and even getting to decide on the interior selections of your home. But, what many homebuyers are not aware of is the fact that new homes can actually help you save some extra money. According to an article by NAHB Eye on Housing, new homes cost less money overall to maintain.
The article refers to an American Housing Survey that showed 26 percent of all homeowners spent $100 or more a month on various upkeeps around their homes. New homes, however, had only 11 percent of owners spending that amount of money. In fact, 73 percent of new home owners spent less than $25 a month on routine maintenance of their homes.
New homes also prove to be more energy efficient, which is important to many homebuyers currently in the market. The average homeowner spends 78 cents per square foot per year on electricity, while new home owners only spent 65 cents per square foot per year.
