Buy Blount County New Construction

Buy Blount County New Construction

Because buying a new construction home in Blount County often makes more sense than buying an existing home.

Blount County new home construction: sure, there is always a case for buying a lovely, well-maintained resale home in an established community. But given the current market for new construction homes in Blount County and the great opportunities for finding exceptional value and quality in new construction and custom houses, we would be remiss in not presenting the facts on this critical topic. This article recaps some of the more compelling points that homebuyers should weigh.



Many resale Blount County homes are still priced above their value when considering factors including deferred maintenance and required updating. As builders in Maryville, Alcoa, Greenback, Walland, and other Blount County communities, we have worked feverishly to offer more houses for less money than resale homes. Yes, building material costs are up but have not outpaced resale homes in this market. In some cases, lot costs are lowering from their recent peak. At Debuty Builders, our operations are streamlined within our company to create value.



There are government-backed loans to purchase a new construction home or a lot and have your home built. You acquire these loans through the same channels as purchasing resale homes. They also have similar qualifications. Your lender can tell you options for building loans or loans to purchase new construction homes in Blount County.



Pick everything that goes into your new home. It’s that simple. Coordinate colors to your taste, decor, and furniture. It’s better for your peace and your home’s equity to have up-to-date details of your choice. Why make-do when you can make it your own for the same or similar price.



From the appliances to thermal envelopes to the HVAC system, Blount County home construction offers significantly more energy-efficient than even just a few years ago. Requirements to increase energy efficiency by government and utility companies are forcing builders to incorporate new and more efficient technology to lower consumption, and therefore, your utility bills. This effort has benefited the environment at the same time. Add to that, Green Building practices employed by top builders as well as environmental sustainability mandates, and you will be paring that carbon footprint down to size, all the while saving serious money compared to that drafty older house!



Is there dreaded Black Mold growing in a wall or floor of my used home that no one knew about at the time of purchase? How’s the electrical? Will Tennessee’s swelling clays crack my foundation and destroy my investment? There’s even a name for these issues: they are called “latent defects.” With new Blount County homes, these issues become less terrifying, due to the warranties and Debuty Builder’s honorable building practices.



After the last few years, it may not be hard to believe, but homes can are still appreciating rapidly. And the research says that new Blount County home construction generally has greater appreciation potential than older homes.



State-of-the-art technology and construction, increasing numbers of inspections required by city and county entities, and design that reflects the buyer’s ever-changing needs are now the guiding principles in new Blount County home construction. Homebuilders are partnering with suppliers to further refine products to improve long-term customer satisfaction. Today’s new houses are the most worry-free ever.



How many times have we heard, “I can’t find what I am looking for,” from clients after showing them 20 used houses? Well, there is a reason for that. Floorplans become obsolete over time. This is since the way people live in their homes changes over time. Builders and architects spend lots of time and money researching those trends, and they design accordingly. A modern floorplan simply blows away an older house of the same square footage. Architects design today’s homes to use every square foot of available space. When the time comes, the new home will be easier to resell due to that fact.



Most of us have been there. We bought an existing home and felt for a time as if it truly was not ours. It still had the look and feel of belonging to the previous owners. Fad colors, odors, and many more things worked together to create an alien environment for the first several months or years. It’s 1 AM, you have a paintbrush in your hand and you’ve been cleaning and cleaning for weeks. Not to mention all the other things you’ve been doing to make your used house feel more like your home! While the charm of making a used home into your own is perfect for some buyers, it does not work for everyone. Or some people have “redone” so many homes over the years, that it is time for a new approach. So with a new home, you might paint a room or two if you feel like it – but not because you feel as though you simply must.




Getting a resale house exactly the way you want it can be expensive and inconvenient. Sure, sometimes a resale might be the perfect home. This is uncommon.  Usually, the new owners want to change or update many things and far more often than not, the costs exceed the initial budget. Plus, in today’s real estate market, a good chunk of those well-intentioned dollars spent just might be gone forever.

Given the extensive reasons that are presented above, we think you’ll agree that buying a Blount County new construction home is at least worth seriously considering. Right now, it just makes sense to go with a new home built by Debuty Builders.
