Purchasing An Old House Or New House

Purchasing An Old House Or New House

It is a big decision for a buyer when purchasing a home weather to choose a newer home or an older "fixer upper."

The correct answer reflects your personal preferences. Here is what you should think about:

Maintenance of a home: Love it or hate it? Older homes will take more repairs and replacement and upgrades then new homes. If you are a handy person and enjoy working on projects around the house then an older home may be for you. 

Upfront cost: How deep are your pockets?  On a new home you might be paying more upfront out of pocket but in the long-run you will save money by not having to pay for repairs and maintenance compared to an older home.

Home design: Love vintage or modern? The older home will come with much more character and historic traditions and with attention to details. Newer homes offer the latest and greatest trends, with open floor plans and energy efficient products. 

If you like to have the best of both world try finding a old home that has already updated plumbing, electrical and good foundation to renovate to your liking.
