There are several advantages to buying a new home versus an old home. While old homes may have more character and history, they often come with major drawbacks like consistent maintenance and low energy-efficiency. If you live in the Lancaster, Orchard Park, or Clarence, NY areas, you know how harshly the winter strikes. New homes are energy-efficient, lower cost, require little maintenance, and come with modern conveniences like dishwashers, microwaves, refrigerators, and more. You’ll have lower energy bills in the winter, fewer repairs, and an easier time moving through your day to day. If you’re interested in building or purchasing a new home, contact Essex Homes of WNY. We’re happy to help you settle down.
