How to Decide: New Home vs Old Home
Ask a grandparent for guidance about purchasing a new home and you’re likely to hear advice like this: “They just don’t build houses like they used to.”
But the “older is better” argument is more myth than reality.
Taylor Morrison’s modern homes are built to exacting standards by skilled craftspeople. Our commitment to quality ensures that every new home we sell offers the same durability of houses built in the “good old days.” And this promise is backed by warranty.
Some homebuyers prefer the lived-in feel of an older house. More often, homebuyers are discovering the real benefit of purchasing a home specifically designed for today’s lifestyle.
Smart and Healthy
Elem3nts™ is Taylor Morrison’s ecosensitive building program. It’s part of our pledge to social responsibility and a driving force behind creating a smarter living experience.

- Water-saving fixtures
- Healthier paints and building materials for improved air quality
Floor Plans Designed for the Way You Live
Contemporary floor plans, such as those presented in new Austin homes at Reunion Ranch, are geared towards the modern family.
Some of the convenient features of newer floor plans include:
- Spacious open-plan concepts
- Large walk-in closets
- Luxurious owner’s suites with home spa inspired master baths
- More efficient use of square footage and more natural light
Newer homes are more fun to live in as spaces are designed with today’s lifestyle in mind.
Traditional neighborhoods fall short compared to new lavishly planned communities. New homes in Florida at Esplanade at Starkey Ranch or Sandoval in Cape Coral offer residents resort-style living year round.
Master planned amenities can include extravagant swimming pools, clubhouse, fitness center, pet parks, water activities, large communal lawns, fire pits, private lakes, parks and more.
All this and convenient access to top-notch schools, fantastic shopping and great restaurants.
Easier to Personalize
It’s true that many older homes feature one-of-a-kind architecture. However customizing an existing construction is expensive. When you buy direct from a major builder, personalizing your home is part of the process.
Carpet, tile, paint color. You can mix and match the options and upgrades you want and pass on those you don’t!
