There are many advantages to purchasing a new constructed home in Kansas City

We’re often asked...and yes, financing and building costs still make building your Kansas City dream home an affordable option....


For quality, value, safety and convenience, a new home will be one of the smartest purchases you will ever make. There are many advantages to purchasing a new constructed home in Kansas City;
  • New home warranties. Options available for new home buyers range from specific warranties by individual builders to third-party limited insured warranties against major structural defects. Manufacturers of new products and appliances in a home offer warranties as well.
  • Energy efficiency. A home built today in Kansas City must, by law, adhere to stricter energy codes than homes built in years past, when such codes either did not exist or were more lenient. This translates into a direct operating savings to home buyers.
  • Latest in building materials. Low maintenance is one of the most important features to today's home buyer. Buyers don't want to worry about painting every three to five years. New technology in building materials has made it possible for homes in the 1990s and beyond to require less maintenance, especially on the exterior of the home.
  • Lower maintenance costs. Buying a new home eases the nagging questions of, "How long before it breaks down?" With a new home, the answer is simple - a substantially longer period when you are the first to use it and are establishing its history of use.
  • Choice of interior and exterior finishes. A new home

makes it possible for buyers to be the decorators before moving in without the cost of searching for and replacing the finishes as they would in a resale home. With a new home, it may be possible to make selections for things such as carpet style and color, wall coverings, appliance colors, lighting fixtures and exterior paint colors.
  • Favorable pricing. Competition among home builders to provide the very best value makes new homes less likely to be overpriced. Buyers can compare features, benefits and options with other new homes on the market to determine the ultimate value of a new home.
  • Value appreciation. Homes, like any purchased product, have a life expectancy. Statistics say the typical home will need remodeling after 25 to 30 years. Since new homes have a longer life, appraisals are generally higher than on a comparable existing homes, making conditions favorable at the time of resale.
  • Modern appliances. Appliance manufacturers introduce new models every year, and home builders are able to offer the latest, state-of-the-art equipment at the time of completing a new home. Because home builders pay for entire inventories of homes, they can purchase appliances at a lower cost and then pass those savings on to home buyers. An added benefit is that new appliances are often energy efficient and come with full-term warranties.
  • Home site selection. Being able to select a home site is an important as selecting the type of home that suites a buyer's needs. Homebuilders often have a selection of home sites that may be on a corner, near a lake, cul-de-sac, green belt and many other locations.

Kansas City Homebuilder plans appeal

Kansas City Homebuilder plans appeal:

Last week’s not guilty verdicts for Kansas City area homebuilder F. Jeffrey Miller may help in a planned appeal of the related case in which he already had been convicted, Miller’s attorney said Tuesday. The sweeping acquittal provides no legal case to challenge the earlier convictions, but “it is a nice atmospheric, that’s for sure,” said Jeff Morris, with the firm Berkowitz Oliver Williams Shaw & Eisenbrandt LLP.

Miller was acquitted of 59 felony charges that stemmed from a May 2006 indictment that claimed he had run a “fraudulent real estate machine.”

He still faces sentencing, however, for convictions from a December 2008 trial on charges in a related second indictment. Morris, who was not involved in the 2008 trial, said he sees several areas to appeal the convictions."
