Reasons Buyers Prefer a New Home

Author: Dragas Team


A recent Harris Poll conducted on behalf of Trulia, with all costs being the same, 41% of Americans surveyed would strongly prefer a new home instead of an existing home. According to Trulia's press release regarding the survey,  "Fifty-nine percent of Americans said they would prefer to buy a new home to have modern features, such as bigger closets, a kitchen island, open floor plan, walls pre-wired for flat screen TVs, or radiant floor heating. The second most popular reason is being able to customize the home (56 percent), while the third is to spend less on maintenance and repairs (55 percent). These reasons were even more pronounced among the people who strongly prefer new homes to existing homes." Looking for a brand-new home in a beautifully planned and conveniently located community?
