New vs. Used: The Advantages of a New McKee Builders Home

October 19, 2020

At McKee Builders, 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 brand sparkling new 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 appliances to flawless features and flexible design, a beautiful new home in a community you love makes life easier and more enjoyable every day. Take a look at the advantages of a new McKee Builders 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: New plumbing, electric, heating, and cooling systems that run efficiently and give you peace of mind

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

Floor Plan

Used: A layout that’s completely out of your hands (and not in sync with 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


Used: Competition from other potential buyers that can force you to raise your bid price

New: Purchase your new home at a set price, with no competition and zero stress — no more bidding wars!

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 

Energy Efficiency

Used: Missing many of the energy-efficient features that you’re looking for today

New: Expertly built with energy-efficient features that respect the environment, keep you comfortable, and save you money on your energy bills

The Area

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

New: A peaceful, friendly community (complete with the contemporary amenities you love, near everything you want and need in town) where you’ll create shared experiences and new friendships with neighbors just like you

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 McKee Builders living space lets you live the happier, healthier lifestyle you want and deserve. This fall, we’re saying “out with the old, in with the new”… there’s no better way to live your life.
