New Construction Homes
New Construction Homes
New construction homes are where the buyer is the first to live there after being built. You can obtain a new construction home in a few different ways. The most common method is purchasing your own plot of land and building your own home on it.
Another way is purchasing a plot of land from a developer who has already built a new construction home. There is also a hybrid of these two methods in which you purchase a plot of land from a developer and then hire a new home contractor to build you a home to your recommendations.
Whichever method you use to obtain a new construction home, DreamHome Remodeling & Builders is here to help. We assist future homeowners in developing the home of their dreams. Simultaneously, we work directly with developers to create homes on their plots of land. The contractors and designers on our team have numerous years of experience in the industry. They use their experience and industry knowledge to build new construction homes that make you fall in love.
Benefits of New Construction Homes
New construction homes offer advantages over “used” homes. Since you are the first to live inside of the house, there are significant benefits. There are even more benefits for those who approach DreamHome Remodeling & Builders for a custom home.
Be the First: One of the biggest benefits of living in a new construction home is that you are the first to live in it. There is a different atmosphere to homes that have never been lived in. They provide the perfect place to start a family because none of the surfaces have been touched, the appliances have never been used, and the rooms are waiting to be filled with memories.
Energy Efficiency: Since the home has never been lived in, the energy efficiency is at its peak. The appliances will only use the water and energy they need. Additionally, your home will hold the desired temperature for longer. With the walls, doors, and windows properly insulated, air escapes at a slower rate. In turn, you are left with lower utility costs.
Less Maintenance: With energy-efficient appliances comes significantly less maintenance. Of course, this goes for the other parts of your home, too: furnace, AC, flooring, paint, insulation, plumbing, electrical, etc. All of these qualities are as new as they can get, meaning you won’t have to worry about them failing in the first few years.
Customization: Finally, for those who approach DreamHome Remodeling & Builders for a new construction home, you can expect customization options. You’ll have a variety of options for the interior and exterior, from paint and windows to the size and layout of your home. Instead of a cookie-cutter house, you can have your dream home.

We have listed and answered some of the most frequently asked questions about new construction homes below.
How much does it cost to build a new home?

How are property taxes assessed on a new construction home?
In California, property taxes are calculated by assessing the home’s value based on the purchase price. The state’s property tax rate is 1%, with a maximum of a 2% increase. When closing on a new construction home, you will pay your first year of property taxes then. The price you pay will most likely be lower because an accessor has not visited your home to appraise the house. So, expect higher property taxes after the first year of living in your new construction home.
Do new construction homes come with appliances?
Yes, new construction homes come with state-of-the-art appliances. DreamHome Remodeling & Builders will work directly with you to find the right appliances for your dream home.
