Resale vs. a New Home in Richmond, VA











If you are ready to purchase a new home in Richmond, VA it is always a good idea to compare available inventory of used homes with the available inventory of new homes. Why? Great question.   When you entertain the idea of purchasing a used home, though your investment may be sound, there is stylistic and personal preference updating to contend with. While this may not be a tremendous issue, updating may just be the issue worth considering in the initial cost of homeownership equation. For example, replacing appliances in the kitchen to a similar appliance with a more contemporary flair or simply a color change can cost anywhere from $2,000 for simpler homes to over $10,000 and you still have a used home.


The contrast could be made with a luxury new home in Richmond. For example, 5017 Westcott Ridge Drive located in the Glen Allen, VA neighborhood of Westcott at Grey Oaks. This new Boone Home located in Glen Allen VA has been built and accessorized with all the most current design trends. The gourmet kitchen design is capped off with designer granite countertops and appliances by Jenn Air in a stainless steel color. The Floors on the first floor are all hardwood and the second floor common spaces are hardwood as well. The owner’s suite bathroom has a travertine tile shower separate from the relaxing jetted tub fit to wash away today’s, tomorrow’s and any other day’s cares.  Capping off all the design finishes that will take away your breath, you will find that the energy efficient package will reduce your energy bills by approximately 30% as compared to other homes of similar size and layout.
