Share This

When it comes to purchasing a home, it’s either buying a resale home or new construction. Buying a new construction home will take a lot of the unexpected surprises out of the equation for you as a new homeowner. By building with French Brothers, a home builder in Alamogordo, NM, your brand-new house will be more energy efficient, feature your desired layout or floor plan, have an included warranty, and usually will have the option to select the colors, appliances, hardware, and other design elements from the beginning.

But did you know that there are several other not-so-obvious reasons to purchase a new home from a home builder in Alamogordo, NM?

Savings on Your Taxes

One large benefit is through home owner tax incentives. So, in addition to first time home buyer assistance and mortgage interest deductions, there could also be home energy credits and refunds. Mortgage rates are still at national lows, so now remains a great time to purchase a new home and get more home for your money.  Plus, your New Mexico home and property values will continue to rise over the years because of the area’s growing population.

Saving the Environment (and Your Wallet)

New homes are also more energy-efficient compared to older homes, and high-performance homes are cost-effective to operate, have healthy indoor air quality, and have a minimal impact on environmental resources.

Under the RESNET HERS Index, French Brothers home are tested and rated to ensure for healthy, durable, energy-efficient homes. RESNET or Residential Energy Services Network is a recognized national non-profit, standards-making body for building energy efficiency rating and certification systems in the U.S.

Created in 1995, RESNET developed a Home Energy Rating System or HERS index that tests and ranks energy consumption in homes on a scale of 0-150.  A home (usually an older home) that is scored at 150 is 50% less energy efficient that a standard new home. A home with a HERS Score of 50 is 50 percent more energy efficient than a standard new home and will be 80 percent more efficient that the average resale home. New French Brothers homes score an average of 55.  So the more efficient your home is, the more money you will save.

Saving You from Worrying

Rest assured that this home builder in Alamogordo, NM provides a home warranty that includes a fully transferable 10 year structural warranty, a 2 year warranty on the delivery portion of the home’s electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems, a 1 year warranty on workmanship and materials, as well as manufacturers warranties of many of the products used, including appliances.  When you buy a new home with French Brothers, you can be sure that they will stand behind you with that house.

Another time saving benefit begins outside the new home.  Instead of inheriting landscaping that doesn’t meet your taste, or tearing out overgrown vegetation, you can design and plant the lawn and garden you want from the start.
