New construction homes in Gulf Breeze

If you’re looking to purchase a home on the Emerald Coast, new construction homes in Gulf Breeze have many benefits.

Probably the biggest is you’ll be working from a clean canvas with a custom AND modern floor plan.

New construction homes with modern floor plans

An older home built before 2010 might have a lower list price, but it may need significant renovations in order to match a modern floor plan in a new construction home.

An older home in Gulf Breeze might require rewiring the electrical system to accommodate more electrical outlets.

You might love an older home but you need an open floor plan for full visibility on the first floor. 

That might require extensive tear-downs and potentially compromise the existing foundation and load-bearing attributes of the structure.

Existing homes rarely offer the opportunity for you to change the layout of the house without doing extensive renovations.. 

Sure, you can remodel and change out the light fixtures, but if your life and work keep you busy, is that the best use of your time?

Since today’s custom home builders have on-staff architects and interior designers, you won’t have to worry about these type of retro-fits and modifications.

With new construction homes, you’ll typically have a choice between multiple floor plan layouts, which means you won’t have remodeling projects.

And depending on the home builder program and timing of your purchase, you’ll have multiple options and upgrades available to you that fit your individual lifestyle.

New constructions homes may have lower cost of ownership

Low cost of ownership is a factor that many home buyers overlook when purchasing a home.

When setting a budget, many homebuyers get hung up on the purchase price and underestimate the on-going costs of maintaining a home, above and beyond the mortgage payment.

New home construction, on the other hand, has several advantages that will drastically reduce your home repair and maintenance costs for the first couple years of ownership.

Construction materials will be as technologically advanced as possible, as well as meet current building codes at the local and state level.

All of your fixtures and appliances will be brand new and more than likely will be accompanied by manufacturer warranties as well as an umbrella home warranty.

Energy efficient appliances, outlets and basic home construction will be optimized for how today’s homeowners occupy and use their homes.  

In Florida, you’ll likely have multiple opportunities for energy efficiency promotions, as well as discounts on your property insurance depending on your window, garage and roof construction.  

If you’re a busy professional, not mechanically inclined or want to hedge against rising construction and repair costs, then new construction homes will often be the better choice for purchasing a home.

That charming older home may cost a fortune in the long run

When you buy an older home, all of your appliances, windows, roof and HVAC system are a lot closer to having to be replaced than with new construction. 

If the previous owner didn’t have regular maintenance on your HVAC unit, it’s likely you’ll have to replace the unit or pay for unexpected repairs sooner rather than later.

If the window seals haven’t been maintained, your energy bill will be higher, especially in hot Florida summers.

If the previous owner kept the inside temperature high to keep their A/C costs down, there’s a high likelihood mold may have seeped in.

If the roof hasn’t been cleaned, tiles been repaired or checked for leaks, it’s likely you’ll at some point have to deal with an unexpected leak and costly repair.

The cost of home insurance in Florida has skyrocketed in the last year as well – newer construction homes have fared the best though.

Older homes with original roofs, windows and garage doors have fared the worst.

When these costs are factored against the total cost of ownership of a new construction home, you’ll likely see new construction homes being a more favorable option.
