Why Buy Used When You Can Build New

Why would you want to build a home right now? It’s true, choosing to buy a used home may seem more economical at the time, but there’s a lot of buyers out there right now driving market value higher than ever. Even with the tougher mortgage stress test coming into play June 1, 2021, it’s predicted that it won’t cool runaway home prices.

What about energy bills or renovations? Older homes are built to an older standard, therefore, they don’t offer the energy savings a new home can and when you do renovate there’s the BC Energy Step Code to consider. Renovating sounds fun, but it can be full of surprises and unexpected costs, just watch any home renovation show.

Or maybe you’ve decided to wait the market out? We get it, prices are unpredictable right now, but Imagine all the other people waiting the market out. This could, once again, flood the market causing spikes in the supply chain and inflate wait times on your custom home.
