It depends on a lot of factors. If it fits your personal needs (commute, etc.) that can be one perspective.
With new homes in some cases, (as can be expected) they are selling at a premium often compared to the nearby neighborhoods with older but remodeled homes. It is a good idea to look at comparables in the area, and figure out roughly what the premium amount is between the new home and the nearby neighboring homes and decide if that is acceptable to you. Often the older but remodeled homes have a larger or normal lot, while the new homes are on a smaller lot.
