The age-old debate: new vs used. Is it really worth it to spend more on a new home? Yes, it is.
Especially when you’re really debating PRICE versus COST.
When you compare the price of a new Stone Martin home to the total cost of an older, used home, it isn’t a straight comparison. Especially when you add up the renovation costs that are often required in a used home. (And the fact that used homes don’t include our industry-best warranty program!)
We ran the numbers on just a few of the most common items that would need to be repaired or replaced in a used home in order to bring it up to the level of a new Stone Martin home.
Energy-efficient HVAC (Central heating & air)$10,000
Spray foam insulation$3,300
Appliances (Stainless steel refrigerator, gas range, dishwasher) $5,500
Kitchen cabinets (maple)$12,000

When you look at what you’re really getting, there’s no doubt that a new home saves you money in the long run, and offers benefits a used home can't. (Like the aforementioned warranties, plus modern design and energy-efficient building techniques.)
Never underestimate the value of a new home at McClain Landing in Prattville, Ryan Ridge in Montgomery, Park Ridge in Dothan or Smiths Crossing in Smiths Station. With warranties, energy-efficiency, new appliances, and great design, a NEW Stone Martin home beats a USED Home every time.
