Have you been online looking at Phoenix home listings? Are you trying to decide between a resale home or new construction? For some decisions you could flip a coin or consult your Magic 8 Ball. But for a really BIG decision like choosing between buying a new home or an old one, you need solid facts and sound advice. You’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together 10 excellent reasons why a new home beats a resale every time. If those aren’t enough to convince you, we’ve also included info about Phoenix area homes for sale that are ready for quick move-in. Once you see them, you’ll be a new home believer.
1) It’s Energy-Efficient in Design and Construction
That’s especially important when you live in a desert climate like ours. The older the home, the less likely it will have energy-efficient insulation, roofing, windows, doors, appliances and plumbing. Taylor Morrison is an ENERGY STAR partner and builds ENERGY STAR-certified homes with ENERGY STAR-rated appliances throughout our Phoenix division. We use the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) and our homes typically outperform the average standard new home rating by 30 or 40 points. You can read more about that here. The bottom line is that with a Taylor Morrison new home, you’re lowering your energy bill and improving the environment, too.
2) We Use State-Of-The-Art Construction Materials and Techniques
Inside and out, behind the walls and under the floors, everything you see and a lot of critical elements you can’t see (like plumbing and wiring) are carefully selected and professionally installed to ensure your home looks and performs beautifully for years to come.
3) Our Warranty Is Your Peace of Mind
We warrant that your new home will be free from defects in material and workmanship for at least a year, and we’ll repair or replace anything covered that doesn’t live up to that promise. No resale home offers that assurance.
4) You Can Personalize Your New Home
When you purchase a new Taylor Morrison home it comes with an exclusive perk: you get to choose customizing options and upgrades at our Design Studio. One of our professional design consultants will help you select from flooring, cabinets, fixtures, paint treatments, countertops, appliances, hardware and more. You’ll move into a home that truly reflects your style, not someone else’s. And you’ll start enjoying your home from Day One, instead of living through agonizing months of remodeling.

5) You Have Your Choice of Floor Plans
Maybe you don’t want the owner’s suite upstairs. Maybe you don’t even want an upstairs. With an older home, that can mean costly renovations or just settling for less than your ideal. With a new Taylor Morrison home, it means selecting from a variety of contemporary floor plans, many with flexible configuration options, and getting exactly what you’ve dreamed about.
6) Your New Home Is Surrounded by Other New Homes, Often in A New Community
You know what they say about real estate and location. At Taylor Morrison we put a lot of thought and planning into where we build. That means you’ll be close to the things that matter to you, like good schools, shopping, recreation and entertainment. Some of our new communities even offer resort-inspired amenities with clubhouse facilities, swimming pools and fitness centers.
7) You Know Your Builder
Homebuilding is our legacy and homebuyers are our inspiration. In fact, we’ve been building homes people love for over 100 years. Along the way, we’ve built a reputation for trustworthiness. It’s a reputation that has earned Taylor Morrison recognition as America’s Most Trusted™ Home Builder four years in a row in an independent survey of nationwide homebuyers. We’re proud of that because it says we’re doing our job and living up to our promise to build homes inspired by you®.
8) No Waiting Unless You Want To
Some folks have time to wait for a to-be-built home. But if you need to move right now, you may think a resale home is your only option. Not so. Many of our Phoenix area communities have a terrific selection of inventory homes that are ready (or almost ready) for move-in. You’ll still have plenty of opportunities to make the home reflect your dream with options and upgrades from the Design Studio.
9) Financing A New Home May Be Easier
If you choose to use Taylor Morrison’s preferred lender you may find that the whole homebuying process is less of a hassle. You may also be able to take advantage of special promotions available from time to time.
10) It’s New
Remember your first new car and how proud you were? A brand-new home is like that, but a whole lot better. There are no “old memories” of past owners hanging about. You new home is a beautiful blank canvas waiting for you to paint your story on it.
