Why Buy New

Anytime you buy a home, you think about the price, as well as potential costs after the purchase. Will an appliance or other component need to be replaced? When you buy a home after retirement, your motivations may be different. For active adults enjoying retirement, there are considerations beyond cost. Here are a few reasons why buying a new Del Webb home is preferable to an existing home.

Home Savings

Simply put: New appliances typically mean fewer repairs. In a new home, everything is in working order. Existing homes often require repairs, renovations, and other potentially costly upgrades.

Energy Efficient

New homes offer energy efficient features that can minimize or reduce utility costs. The inclusion of smart appliances and energy efficient features in a new home, such as radiant-barrier roofing and low-emissivity windows, can help lower your monthly energy bills. That’s good for your wallet and the environment.


When you buy a Del Webb home, you are joining a vibrant community of active adults like you. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy the company of like-minded people who share your passion for life. Staying active—whether on the golf course or in an art class—is a great way to spend time with friends and neighbors, and it’s a good feeling to know the comfort and security of living in a community of people who look out for each other. That’s the feeling of life in a Del Webb community.
