To buy or not to buy? A good question, especially when it comes to making a decision about buying a new home! A home is often the largest purchase in a person’s lifetime, which is why it’s so important to consider all your options before making that big decision. Do you buy a new home or an an existing home? When is the best time to buy a home? While we don’t pretend to have all the answers, we do believe there are some steadfast benefits for you to consider buying a new home at the end of the year.

A 2014 Trulia study revealed that “41% of Americans would prefer to buy a newly built home over a previously-lived-in home”. Those same people stated that their reasons for buying a new home range from having modern features and being able to customize their home, to living in a newly developed neighborhood and being the first to live in the home.

At Tim Lewis Communities, we have you in mind from the moment we purchase the land to every last detail of each home and community we build. We select the most energy efficient appliances, make environmentally-friendly building decisions, ensure each house has the latest and greatest in home technology, and so much more. These are only a few of the reasons we believe buying a new home at the year’s end is so beneficial to you:

  • Tax Savings: The end of the year is a great time to consider your personal financial goals for the current and coming years. Did you know that if you close on buying a new home by December 31, you will be able to benefit from significant tax savings such as deducting mortgage interest, property taxes, points on your loan and interest costs? Additionally, new home buyers may be able to take advantage of mortgage financing perks.
