Perhaps the very best thing about homes in Lake Wales at Scenic Bluff is the fact that they’re brand-new. Nothing beats that “new-car” smell, and new homes are no different! Imagine moving in without the need for renovations, without the worry of hidden damages and unexpected repairs, and knowing not only is your home built to the latest standards for your health and safety but free from wear and tear. New construction homes in Lake Wales, FL, offer you all of this – and more!

For example, did you know new construction homes include energy-saving features, from appliances to windows and insulation to lighting, which will save you money on your utility bill each and every month?

And that’s not all. You are also protected by an industry-leading new home warranty, a benefit that extends beyond your wallet to your peace of mind. When you build your Lake Wales new home with Highland Homes, your investment is protected with triple coverage:

  • A one-year builder warranty against material defects
  • Two years of systems surety coverage against defects in major systems such as electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, and ventilation
  • 10-years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components including your foundation, wall support systems, and roof framing

In addition to these protections we provide, your appliances, shingles, and many additional products in your home carry manufacturer warranties. In the unlikely event you have a problem with your new Lake Wales home, chances are it will be taken care of with no expense to you.

And let’s not stop there. Buying a new construction home can save you money, time, and the frustration of having to make renovations to update an older home for modern living.  If you buy an older home, chances are you’re not going to like it just as it is - Here are some examples of common remodeling projects and costs:

  • Minor kitchen remodel (cabinet doors, counters, appliances, sink, flooring, paint) - $25K
  • Window replacement - $19K
  • New shingles - $26K

If you do just these three common remodeling projects to an older home, you're looking at $70,000, out of pocket, on top of the price you just paid to buy a house - yikes.

When you are shopping for homes and comparing new homes vs. used homes, it’s important to keep in mind that the cost of homeownership extends beyond the initial purchase price and consider the value of everything included in a new construction home – modern design, energy efficiency, home warranty, etc. – versus buying an older home, without a warranty, with the possibility of unexpected repairs, and the need of renovations to make it suit your needs.
