Advantages of Owning a New Townhome Over an Older Single Family Home
If you’re in the market for a family-sized home, there are a number of advantages to purchasing a new townhome over a previously owned single-family home that you may not be aware of.
On the surface, a new family sized townhome and an older single family dwelling might seem to be similarly priced, but the key differences are hidden in the operating costs and home warranty.
Below is a list of differences you’ll encounter when you choose to purchase a new 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1,975 sq ft townhome at Winsome Hill over a previously owned single family home in Kelowna, BC:
New townhomes at Winsome Hill come with a 1 year bumper to bumper warranty, 2 year mechanical warranty, 5 year building envelope warranty, and 10 year structural home warranty coverage. With a previously owned single family home, any deficiencies that come up will be a direct cost to the homeowner.
Owning a new home also means you will not have to spend money on expensive repairs, like replacing shingles on the roof, aging decks or fencing, and windows or doors, that older homes inevitably need year after year.
Low Operating Costs
The Built Green Gold Certified homes at Winsome Hill are extremely energy efficient and have low utility costs. On average you will save 30% - 50% on your monthly utility bills in a Built Green home. And, because your exterior maintenance (lawn care, snow removal, gutter cleaning, etc.) is taken care of, that along with your lower utility costs adds up to approximately $3,000 a year* in savings. Just ask our Sales Team for actual homeowner bills to see the savings for yourself.
