Out with the old and in with the new...
If you are considering buying your next home soon, you should really think about buying a new home from ABS Homes at Zia Crossing in Hobbs, NM. There are many advantages to buying a new home versus a resale. In this article, we will discuss the Top 5 Reasons.
1. ABS Homes will pay up to $6,000 in closing costs to help you get into your new home.
If you have never purchased a home, you need to understand that depending on the type of loan you choose, there are always costs associated with the loan. ABS Homes helps you with these costs and this only lowers the amount of cash you will have to come up with at time of closing. FHA loans require 3.5% of the purchase price as a down payment. Conventional loans require 5% of the purchase price. Without help with the closing costs, you are looking at a down payment and the closing costs. This can add up. For example, if you get an FHA loan for $250,000, you will need $8,750 in cash for your down payment. Without the $6,000 help toward closing costs, you are looking at $13,000 to $15,000 to get into your new home. The $6,000 that ABS Homes gives you really softens the blow. You can use that extra money in your pocket for new furniture for your home. These $6,000 in closing costs are available when you use a preferred lender.
2. Save on your energy bills with the latest technology in home building.
Older homes tend to cost more to cool and heat. New homes can save you lots of money in energy costs because of the latest methods and technology that are available in new construction. For example, an older home built in the 1980's may cost $250-$400 a month to keep cool in the summer, where an ABS Home will be significantly cheaper to cool. ABS Homes also have gas installed standard for cooking and for your central heating. This will also help you save money. Of course, electric range is an option, if you prefer.
3. Receive a 2-10 Home Warranty at no extra cost.
New home builders, by law, are required to give you a 1 Year Warranty on your new home. This is basically a "bumper-to-bumper" warranty for your home. When you buy an ABS Home at Zia Crossing, it includes the 2-10 Warranty standard with each home purchased. Not only do you receive the 1 Year Builder Warranty, but you also receive a 2 Year Warranty on the systems in your home including your HVAC, plumbing, and electrical and a 10 Year Warranty on the foundation and structure of your home. This gives you peace-of-mind to know that when you move in to your new ABS Home, you're protected. When you purchase a resale, you get no warranty, unless you pay for one and these can cost over $400 a year and are not guaranteed to cover all of your issues. The 2-10 Home Warranty is one of the best in the business.
4. Put your personal touch on your new home from the beginning.
ABS Homes includes many custom touches at no extra cost to you. Skip trowel texture, 9 foot ceilings, 5 1/4" baseboards, Cheyenne or 5 Panel Doors, one paint color throughout the home, and granite counter tops are just a few of the touches that you will receive standard with your new home and give you the custom touches you have always wanted. There are also many other options and upgrades that you can choose such as cabinet styles and colors, flooring styles and colors, and luxury amenities such as stair railing, jetted tub, and a stone fireplace. The list goes on and on. Building a new home allows you to put your personal touches on your home as it is being built rather than having to put thousands of extra dollars into a home that is 30+ years old. ABS Homes lets you get creative and allows your dream home to become a reality. We have 4 Model Homes at Zia Crossing in Hobbs, NM for you to explore and see!
