Two Not So Obvious Reasons of Buying New Construction vs Resale
While there are several benefits of buying new construction over a resale home, here are two not so obvious reasons to consider during your journey searching for a home in Hobbs, NM.
Better Building Codes
A new construction home will have the latest building products and features that are feasible within the price range, and have some of the latest design trends and colors. Although the colors and design trends are visually appealing and arguably more interesting (when it comes to how the home makes you feel), it’s the building codes you may not see that makes new construction better than resale.
When people think of building codes, they might first think of a property that can withstand some environmentally related events like windstorms, water/hail storms, and earthquakes. These challenging elements and weather events drive the building products industry to constantly look for ways to improve. Just like the auto industry features improvements with each new model year, the same happens with the building industry, but over a different time period as building codes are updated every handful of years.
In addition, building codes also ensure structural integrity plus electrical, plumbing and mechanical system safety. Currently, the new building code features recent improvements in energy efficiency, and this is something French Brothers has already been including in their homes in Hobbs, NM.

Insulation throughout the home for the framing, walls, roof, doors, windows and garage will be upgraded, and R30 insulation will be added in the ceiling below a TechShield radiant barrier in the roof. So you can have peace of mind when buying a new French Brothers home in Hobbs, NM.
Clean History Record – Starting from Day 1
Another not so obvious benefit to purchasing a brand new home over a resale is the absence of expensive repairs during the first few years. You are starting with brand new major appliances. Plus you get to have the roof and all the exterior, the interior including paint, and the function of all home systems starting from new. From Day 1, the home will be clean and you will be the first person or family living there.
New homes require very little maintenance in terms of repairs for major appliances and home systems such as HVAC. When you move into a new home, you begin fresh with all of those service calls, and therefore none or hardly any repairs aside from annual maintenance checks/appointments are required for the first few years. Plus, similar to living under the most current building codes, the appliances and systems will also be the latest, newest versions. On the contrary, a resale home is often a mismatch of aging units and appliances at different levels of age and repair. New construction homes are great for having both a clean slate for maintenance and a clean home environment from the start.
