If you are still debating whether to buy a new or resale home, the following reasons to buy a new home will emphasize why purchasing a new construction home in Daybreak might be your best bet:

Energy Efficient Homes

Nobody likes spending extra money.

In Daybreak, every new home is built and independently tested to achieve a high standard of energy efficiency, saving you anywhere from $200 to nearly $1,500 every year versus the typical new home. Compared to older homes, moving to a new home in Daybreak can save you $2,500 a year or even more. And you get a more durable and comfortable home all at the same time. Ah, the miracle of science. (FYI, your actual performance will vary depending on weather, thermostat settings and other factors.)

No More “Honey Do List”

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.

New Friends

Established neighborhoods in the suburbs have their charm, but as the new folks in town it can be hard to make friends. Remember middle school when you were the odd man out?  Neighbors in an established neighborhood likely have known each other for years and unfortunately their tribe may be full.

In Daybreak you can have the best of both worlds—an established community with award-winning charm, dozens of amenities to explore and a community council (LiveDAYBREAK) that throws amazing events to help you meet your neighbors. Yep, even in a pandemic this dedicated team has found safe and fun ways to connect. Get to know LiveDAYBREAK, here.
