Because of our extensive experience in building new homes in Delaware for over three decades, Wilkinson Homes understands that buying a new construction home versus a resale home can be a difficult decision. While resale homes may have charm and character, there are many benefits to purchasing a new construction home—especially from a reputable homebuilder like Wilkinson Homes. Continue reading to explore the many benefits of buying new construction homes compared to resale, and why Wilkinson Homes stands out in terms of energy efficiency, durability and design

High efficiency

One of the most significant benefits of buying a new construction home is energy efficiency. New homes are typically built with the latest energy-efficient materials, which are designed to keep the house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. This translates into lower energy costs for homeowners, which is a significant financial benefit in the long run. Unlike some resale homes, new construction homes have high-quality insulation, advanced heating and cooling systems and energy-efficient appliances that help homeowners save money on their utility bills.

At Wilkinson Homes, we take pride in building top-quality energy-efficient homes that are built to stand the test of time. We use advanced insulation techniques, energy-efficient systems, low-E windows and more to contribute to a better tomorrow and give our homeowners peace of mind. By purchasing a new construction home from Wilkinson Homes, homeowners can expect to see significant savings on their energy bills while reducing their environmental impact—which typically can’t be found in resale homes.

Unparalleled durability

Another major advantage of buying a new construction home is its durability. Unlike the majority of resale homes, new homes are designed and built to endure over time and require less maintenance. At Wilkinson Homes, we use high-quality materials and modern construction techniques to ensure that our homes are structurally sound and long-lasting. With proper maintenance, our homes can last for decades without significant repairs or costly renovations.

In contrast, resale homes may require extensive renovations and repairs due to their age and wear and tear—which can be both time-consuming and expensive for homeowners. By purchasing a new construction home from Wilkinson Homes, homeowners can enjoy the reassurance of knowing that their home is built to last and will require minimal maintenance. Our homes are designed to meet the needs of modern living and are equipped with the latest features and technologies, providing homeowners with a comfortable and convenient living space for years to come.

Timeless design

When purchasing a new construction home, you're not just buying a place to live—you're also investing in a modern, stylish and well-designed living space. At Wilkinson Homes, we pride ourselves on providing top-quality designs that are both timeless and on-trend. Our homes feature open floor plans, high ceilings and large windows that let in natural light—making them feel spacious and airy.

On the other hand, resale homes can be outdated and may not meet the needs of modern living. Many resale homes were designed with older styles and trendy looks that are no longer relevant—which can leave you feeling like you need to strip the current design and start from scratch. At Wilkinson Homes, our homes are designed to accommodate the needs of modern living, with features such as study rooms, outdoor living spaces and flexible floor plans that can adapt to changing family dynamics. Our homeowners also have the freedom to choose the floor plan and community that best fits their needs—whether they prefer a larger home with multiple bedrooms, a community with great amenities or a convenient location close to work or school. And, for those needing to move in fast, our quick move-in homes provide the perfect solution. By purchasing a new construction home from Wilkinson Homes, homeowners can live the life they’re always envisioned without having to compromise on location, size, quality or design.
