In general, a resale is a better buy in Jupiter. Having lived and practiced real estate in Jupiter for over 20 years, we can tell you that the best land in the best locations was built upon years ago. Remember, you can always remodel your home, but you can't move your lot to a better location. Additionally, value is generally better on a resale. Also, all of the warranty work has already been done, so you don't have to cajole the builder to honor his contract.
However, a new home has all the latest technology, and you can build it exactly the way you like it, unless you buy a spec home, of course [that's a home built in anticipation of selling it].
When we built in Jupiter 25 years ago, there were no suitable resales. Therefore, we built new. Believe me, it can be quite a hassle. We had bought resales before that, and it was much less stressful. The feedback we have received from our clients confirms our opinion.
However, if your heart is set on having a brand new home, contact us and we can recommend a good builder. If you prefer a resale, we can find you a lovely place to live.
