The advantages to buying new construction or recently built construction is the tax abatement. Essentially you will get a huge tax break on real estate taxes, in some cases up to ten years. The big thing is to know who the construction company is and their construction record. Mainly you want to know the quality of their work. Older homes or previously built homes might be made with better materials and therefore more structural sound. You just want to know the new construction wasn't built cheaply. If you have any more questions feel free to call me @ 215-620-3798.
It depends on where you are purchasing and what is your goal. For example Philadelphia has a tax abatement on new construction so you do not have to pay taxes for 10 years in Philadelphia. On the other hand the school districts in Bucks and Montgomery county are better. If you want to buy an investment it's a different animal. If you have 10-15 minutes please call me and we can discuss your goals. I service Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomenry Counties. To contact me please click my picture.
