Buying New vs. Old

Moving into a new home has many advantages. Some of them include: 

  • Little maintenance, as you are not likely to install a new roof or replace the water heater.
  • Your home is backed by a 7-year warranty.
  • You don’t have to worry about drafts, creaky floors, squirrels in the attic, or any of the other problems that plague owners of older homes.
  • You get your choice of features and finishes, so that your home will reflect your unique style.

We could go on, but we’ll be the first to admit that the problem with new homes is waiting for the home to be built. 

The Springdale B is located in our Bowmanville community and costs $269,990.

Some people relish waiting. They mark the closing day on their calendar. They take construction pictures. They mingle with future neighbours on our social media and at community events.

Others, however, don’t want to wait. They would like to enjoy a new home right away, so they may conclude their only choice is to buy an older home. 

Luckily, that’s not the only alternative. If you want a home as soon as possible, we offer finished new homes in our current communities. Complete with superior finishes, excellent workmanship and convenient closing dates, these homes might just be what you’re looking for. 

To find out which Brookfield Homes you can move into right away, head over to the Move in Now section of our website, where you can filter a selection of new homes by region, download their floorplans, and find out everything from price to square footage and house type. 

What’s more, you can email select homes to friends and relatives, so if you’re not looking for a new home, but know someone who is, you can suggest a home that would help you both make the most of our Homeowner Referral Program
