New construction homes in Portland, Oregon appeal to many home buyers. Buying a new home can eliminate some of the question marks associated with buying resale. For instance, when doing one’s due diligence on an older home there can be gaps in the history. When looking at the seller’s disclosure about the home there are often “unknown” boxes checked on questions pertaining to the age of mechanical systems such as the furnace, electrical or plumbing. It may also be unclear if there is an old oil tank in the backyard. This is usually not a result of dishonesty but rather the loss of information over time. To some buyers this can be unsettling. When buying new you can often get involved in the building process in terms of selecting mechanical equipment and choosing cosmetic finishes. And of course there is the assurance that everything is new and functional.
Another advantage of new construction is that the homes are often times more energy efficient. Builders are acutely aware of Portlander’s proclivity towards Green homes and often include sustainable and energy efficient products in new builds. There is also the baseline increase in efficiency standards that are better than outdated systems and are required of new construction.
Many people find new homes in Portland more compatible with modern life. Having a kitchen that is open to a large living space is a must-have feature for some buyers and is almost universally standard in new homes. Other features such as a attached two car garage and a master suite with bathroom are sought out features generally standard with new construction houses.
The majority of new construction homes in Portland are found in outer neighborhoods and suburbs, however, if you are wanting to live close-in don’t disregard new construction all together. Infill projects and vacant lots are both good access points to new construction in already established neighborhoods.
