Buying a new Home can be a Smart Move!

Very few moments in your life will be as exciting as the day that you are presented with the keys to your brand-new home. Hunt Homes wants to help you understand the new home buying process before you begin. If you know what to expect, the process will be much more enjoyable.


“What can I afford” is a question you have to ask first.
Getting pre-approved for a mortgage should be your first step. Your banker or mortgage broker will be able to help your with this. Your current income, expenses and equity will determine how much you can afford. You can get some idea from our Mortgage Calculator.

New or Used?

Most buyers consider a used home during their home shopping experience, but fail to fail to realize that a brand new home may be well within their budget. When buying a used home, you need to consider the extra expenses that can accumulate to large amounts very quickly. Will the furnace last and is it cost efficient? Does the roof need replacing soon? Is the insulation value of the windows up to par or do they create a lot of heat loss? Are there structural any unseen structural damage? All this can add up to a lot of money!

Buying a New Home

We are glad that you have chosen to shop for a new home that can be built just the way that you want with the paint colors you want, the floor types and colors you want, and numerous other choices you will get to make to make your home finished the way you want it.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of living in a new home.

New homes today are built to a much stricter Ontario Building Code. The insulation, windows, and high efficiency heating/cooling equipment will keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer with lower monthly utility bills than a used house. With our Energy Star qualified homes, you can save even more money on those monthly utility bills and with those utility costs increasing all the time, we want to use as little gas or electricity as possible.

You get to choose a plan that fits your life. With a resale home you may have to remove walls and change flooring to get the modern open floor plans that Hunt Homes features. This is an expensive and messy job to have done. In a new Hunt Home it is built the way you want with features like walk in closets, finished basements and a kitchen that is open to the great room. If you are thinking about a resale home, don't forget about those hidden costs of changing things to be the way you want them.

Tarion Warranty gives you the peace of mind that you are covered against things breaking down a week after you move in. Many of the new products installed in a new Hunt Home have factory warranties up to 10 years.

It's so nice to be surrounded by new things. There are no stains under a couch, oil stains on the garage floor or orange shag carpet that the previous owners dog lived on for 10 years. Everything in your home is clean and brand new - built exactly the way you want it!.
