What's Happening

There are lots of things to think about when purchasing a new Daybreak home. After all your home is a big investment financially and emotionally. A home becomes the central hub of your life. It is where you will rock your baby to sleep at night. Watch the big game with friends. And relax after a long day at work.

Regardless of what home means to you, the homebuying process always starts with a lot of questions. Especially the big question, “Should I buy an existing home or a new home?” And while there are benefits to either choice, here are the 4 reasons buying a new home makes perfect sense:

Home Sweet Home

Buying a new home means you can finally put your Pinterest ideas to good use. During the homebuying process you can work with your homebuilder to customize the home to suit your needs and wants. No need for a “honey do list.” Get it done the way you want it the first time around.

Resort-like Amenities

Purchasing a new home in a master planned community, like Daybreak. Means that you get access to so much more than just a new home.

In Daybreak for instance, your new home comes with 30+ miles of trails, Oquirrh Lake in the Lower Villages, the Watercourse coming soon to the Upper Villages, and at least one park within easy walking distance of every home, Daybreak is really just one huge playground/gym/mediation studio. And with outdoor concerts, farmers markets and all the other community events created by our dedicated LiveDAYBREAK team, Daybreak is a perpetual invitation to play together.

Energy Efficiency=Monthly Savings

Nobody likes spending extra money. So, when it comes to the choice between a new home or an existing home, it is a no brainer that buying a new home will save you more money on utilities than an existing home of the same size.

New homes in Daybreak are built to meet or exceed the EPA’s energy efficiency standard. And every new home in Daybreak is independently tested and certified using the Home Energy Rating System (or HERS), so you know exactly how efficient your home is. The HERS score that each home receives is similar to a Miles Per Gallon rating on a new car. It provides a way for a home buyer to compare the energy efficiency of two homes.

An energy-efficient home provides durability, affordability and comfort.  In Daybreak we take efficiency one step further, the average new home in Daybreak is 20-30% more efficient than the average new home outside of Daybreak, saving you anywhere from $600 to over $1,500 every year.

Buying new just makes perfect sense!

Location, Location, Location

Daybreak is nicely situated about a half hour from both downtown Salt Lake and the new “Silicon Slopes” technology district in northern Utah County. And thanks to TRAX light rail, the Mountain View Corridor and several other major transportation projects, getting from here to everywhere is easy and just gets easier. And did we mention there is a Costco, Target and natural food store within a 5–minute drive of your new home!
