Foxbank: Buying a New Home versus Resale in 29461

Not all resale homes are older models with previous owners and when you are on a tight timeframe, buying an existing, yet new home can be a smart option.

Buying an Existing Property
One of the largest investments a person can make is the purchase of a home. Whether it is bought new or resale, the potential homeowner will need to take out a loan and make a commitment to pay the monthly mortgage amounts. The final decision of whether to buy new or resale is one many homeowners face in a neighborhood like Foxbank Plantation, where there are several floorplans and beautiful, new homes being built on every street of the community. How can you decide whether to buy in one of these new areas or stick to a resale home? Many factors can go into this decision, but buying a new home in Moncks Corner may be easier than you might think. Crescent Homes has made the process simple for either type of purchase.

The Benefits of a New Home
Like a new car, a new home will usually have all the bells and whistles, but it can be difficult to justify the investment for some homebuyers. Some will assume that buying an older home and performing remodels, as possible, makes more sense for the budget and for their preferences. What these potential homebuyers don't realize is that buying a new home in Moncks Corner can be just cost effective as buying resale. Crescent Homes designs and builds homes that are not only energy efficient but affordable for a wide range of homebuyers. Just because you are buying an exsiting/resale home, doesn't mean it is an older home or even one that has been lived in. Many of the homes in Foxbank Plantation are move-in ready and when you are able to begin enjoying your new home from Day 1, chances are you will be ready to explore the new area and make new friends, rather than be forced to work on home improvement projects. With a new home, you are in control of what you buy, rather than settling for what will work. Crescent Homes has created many excellent floor plans, custom designs, and features that will blow your mind for the price you'll pay.

Take Back your Weekends
Foxbank Plantation is a planned development with amenities like pools, trails, and lakes. When you buy a new home in Moncks Corner, rather than resale, you are free to explore on the weekends, rather than having to work on your house. The paint colors will be your choice, the light fixtures will match your style, the floors will be finished, and the list goes on. Go back to enjoying the weekends again instead of working all week and then working all weekend as well. With the larger backyards and screened-in porches featured in the Foxbank Plantation community you can invite friends and family over for a crawfish boil or to test out your culinary skills when it comes to shrimp and grits. The new home will give you more freedom, lower energy bills, and a sense of pride in your new home. Keep in mind as you are looking for a new home in 29461 that some resale homes are brand new with all the exceptional features you want and you don't have to wait for the build to be completed. When you begin searching, look for specifications as to whether the home is a resale home and has never been lived in, or whether it is a new home, yet to be built. Both options can provide you with an amazing place to call home but will have varying benefits.
