When you buy a new construction home, you can go with the baseline design, or you can invest in upgrades to customize your home.
But the question is—which upgrades are actually worth the investment? A recent article from realtor.com outlined the most valuable builder upgrades buyers should consider for their new construction homes, including:
Energy-efficient upgrades. Energy-efficient upgrades (like Energy Star windows or a smart thermostat) offer significant savings on utility bills—so consider investing in the upgrade while your home is being built to save money in the long run.
Kitchen upgrades. Kitchen upgrades can be pricey. But if you love to cook, investing in those upgrades during construction (for example, upgraded appliances, a kitchen island, or a pantry) can significantly change how you experience the space—and add value and enjoyment to the space for years to come.
Bathroom upgrades. Renovating a bathroom can be a long, disruptive, and expensive process—so if you are buying a new construction house, make sure to install the bathroom upgrades (like upgraded flooring, tile, or bathtub) from the get-go.
