New vs. Used: The Advantages of a New Tradition Home

July 8, 2020

At New Tradition Homes, we believe your home should reflect you inside and out. And while a used home has all the “pieces,” it doesn’t have the heart. With a fresh, untouched home as your canvas, you finally get to put your wants and needs first — and make your home entirely your own.

From all-new systems and energy-efficient features to flawless finishes and flexible design, a beautiful new home in Washington makes life easier and more enjoyable every day. Take a look at the advantages of a New Tradition home vs. any used home you’ve seen before.



Buying a New Home vs. Used

Home Systems

Used: Old, antiquated systems that require repairs, and cause code concerns and maintenance issues

New: Immaculate plumbing, electric, heating, and cooling systems that run efficiently

Style and Design

Used: Design choices that reflect another family from another time

New: Wide open space and unique options that allow you to incorporate your personal style (plus, you’ll make all of your customization selections in our cutting-edge design studio)!

Floor Plan

Used: A layout that’s completely out of your hands and not reflective of your lifestyle

New: A modern, flexible plan chosen by you to fit your specific needs for number and location of rooms, overall space, and more

Warranty Program

Used: Depending on its age, the home and everything in it are likely long past warranty coverage, so no warranties mean large repair bills

New: Invaluable peace of mind today, tomorrow, and down the line with our 2-10 warranty 

Energy Efficiency

Used: Missing today’s energy efficiency that you’re looking for

New: 100% ENERGY STAR® and Built Green® 3rd-party certified to ensure that your home is built for life

Smart Features

Used: Not in sync with modern technology and the pace of your everyday routine

New: A Simply Smarter Home with today’s first-rate smart tech that allows you to control your corner of the universe

The Area

Used: An unfamiliar location or lot that you didn’t necessarily want or choose

New: A vibrant, desirable community complete with the contemporary amenities you love, near everything that you need (shopping and dining, schools, commuting options, etc.)

As you compare new construction vs. resale, be sure to consider just how much a high-end home will enhance your daily routine. Aside from saving you money in the long run, a New Tradition home lets you live the happier, healthier lifestyle you want and deserve. This summer, we’re saying “out with the old, in with the new”… there’s no better way to live your life.

This was our first time building a home. Our experience couldn’t have gone any smoother. New Traditions has made the process so easy and stress free. The customer service we received during building, closing, and then recently at our two year check in was excellent. I can’t recommend enough.
