Active adults who purchase a new construction home will reap many benefits and could even end up saving money in the long run. The most obvious plus is being able to choose your own colors, floor plans, upgrades, and lot location.
Also, with a new construction home, there's no tearing down of old wallpaper or out-of-date window treatments. Another big plus is that the home and its contents are brand new and will have warranties. Today’s modern homes also use improved materials like double-pane windows, which can save energy and reduce monthly bills. A new home also means a better resale value when it comes time to sell.
Here are some New Jersey communities with new construction homes for sale.
