Home Blog The advantages of buying a new home


When you buy an existing home, you inherit someone else’s taste, and often someone else’s problems. There are numerous advantages to buying a new Hill Country home, from the desirable location, to the detailed architecture, to being able to choose the look, features, floorplan, and finishes that meet your needs.


 No one has ever lived in it

There’s something special about being the first to live in a home. No old scratches in the floors that have been buffed and shined but are still visible, reminding you of a life lived before you stepped through the door. Yours will be the only growth chart carved into the pantry doorframe. The memories you make will be even more special in your New Braunfels new home when you help create it.

Everything is brand new

Buying an existing home comes with concern over appliances breaking or major systems not functioning properly. If your air conditioner goes out or your roof starts leaking, you could be out thousands of dollars. When you buy a new home in New Braunfels, everything inside and out is brand new as well. That alleviates any fear of replacements or expensive repairs. And, if anything should need to be fixed, a new home warranty offered by the builder in your Hill Country community should cover the cost.

The choices are yours

Hand-scraped hardwoods throughout the living area? Done. White cabinets and professional grade appliances in the kitchen? Coming right up. Buying a new home means being able to choose the features and finishes you want. In some Hill Country communities, like The Crossings in New Braunfels, builders including Lennar Homes offer some of the most upgraded features at no extra charge through their popular Everything’s Included® (EI) program.

As customized as you want to be

A great benefit to buying a new home is being able to choose your fixtures and finishes to make the home feel custom. You may have a similar floorplan to your neighbors, but your home can look completely unique depending on your color scheme and individual features like flooring, countertops, lighting, and window coverings.

Plus, everything can reflect the most up-to-date trends, technology, and energy efficiency. 

Top locations

Many of today’s new homes are built in popular Hill Country locations, with ample dining and shopping, recreational opportunities, and great schools. New Braunfels has become a favorite family destination for its convenient location between Austin and San Antonio, its growing job market, its abundant area amenities, and its scenic beauty.

The right floorplan for your family

Buying someone else’s old home can require you to accept a floorplan that doesn’t really suit your needs because you’re basing your choice on the location or price. And that can mean having to do renovations once you’ve moved in, or living with a floorplan that doesn’t really suit your lifestyle. Most new-home neighborhoods in the Hill Country have multiple floorplans to choose from, and they’re designed according to the latest trends so they match the way today’s homebuyers want to live.

New Braunfels’ most exciting new community

The popularity of living in the Hill Country has created continued demand for Hill Country real estate, and buyers are coming home to communities like The Crossings. The newest single-family community in New Braunfels, this new 288-acre offering features two single-family neighborhoods with modern floorplans, spacious gathering areas, and many of today’s most coveted features. The Crossings also boasts great onsite amenities including a swimming pool, grassy play areas, and walking trails, along with Hill Country views and a location offering easy access to I35.
