Why Buy a New Construction Home vs. a Resale?

If you are thinking about buying a resale home (that is, one that’s been previously owned and lived in), you will also need to consider taking on a lot of uncertainty. Because the truth is, no matter how spectacular, sound, money-saving, or superbly located that home seems, a preowned home has a significant chance of costing buyers not only expense, but also time, quality, and stress. Let’s take a look at the many reasons to buy a new construction home versus buying a resale.


Purchasing a home is one of the most meaningful investments you’ll ever make. To ensure this process is as simple and straightforward as possible, we’ve streamlined the home-buying steps to provide buyers with more support and less stress.

Your Time Matters

During every part of the search for your Pahlisch new construction home, you’re in control. Our website provides several different ways to explore your options, giving you free rein to roam through homes online or stop by to see them with your own two eyes, on your own precious time. Our robust resources allow you to avoid the hassle of driving around endlessly. At you will find details about:

  • Pahlisch Homes communities – by region, in Oregon and Washington
  • Community amenities – included with your new-build Pahlisch home
  • Available listings – specifying bedrooms, bathrooms, garage layout, square footage, photos, and floor plans
  • Virtual tours – for a lifelike look around the home
  • Sales agents – there’s a dedicated agent for every home, every community
  • Interactive plat maps – showing lot locations within each community

It’s our mission to make sure you have everything you need to perform your own research and move through the timeline to buy a new construction home at your personal pace, before ever reaching out to a sales agent.

Dedicated Sales Agents

Residences from Pahlisch Homes are part of their own Pahlisch community, and each community is represented by its own Pahlisch sales agent. So whether you pinpoint a possible Pahlisch home online, or spy that perfect place in person, when you call, connect, or chat to find out more, you’re quickly connected to a dedicated sales agent with in-depth knowledge of that home, that community, and that surrounding area. Each Pahlisch agent represents just one community, so their expertise runs deep.

During the typical sales process of a previously owned house, individuals set out to select a realtor, scour dozens of websites and listings to find possible homes, and then try to coordinate the busy schedules of the many people required to take a peek at a resale home (you, the agent, the homeowner, and anyone else vying for your time). But with the Pahlisch Homes new construction sales process, it’s easy: explore our website, request contact from a sales agent, and set up a time to see a home. When you’re working in the realm of new construction, we can safely say that no one will ever be home when you stop by. 


As many people who’ve purchased a resale home come to know, there’s often more than meets the eye. 

Despite their promise, resales often require a significant outlay of time and money due to unforeseen renovations caused by wear and tear. Those renovations might seem at first like a simple way to save lots of money with a little elbow grease, a few YouTube videos, and some quick trips to the hardware store, but they often turn into much more than any homebuyer bargains for. Even those who embark on a project for fun regularly find themselves over their heads, with no way to recoup their sanity or savings.

And although some homeowners opt to hand off their projects to a professional, things don’t always go as planned. Managing people going to and fro, freeing up your day to give input, adjusting to shifting schedules, and tracking orders and outcomes all take a toll on your wellbeing.

So while Chip and Joanna Gaines have made the idea of renovations upbeat and exciting, they’re definitely not for everyone. Breaking the bank, working away your weekends, and living in a mess for months are incredibly common pitfalls of purchasing a resale home.

When you invest your time and money in a new construction home from Pahlisch Homes, you get your dream home and take back your weekends.
