Buying Old vs. Buying New |

Wouldn’t it be great not to factor in all those concerning variables of buying a used home? We build both custom and new spec homes here at Midwest Design Homes. These options allow you to not worry about the stresses of buying a used home. Read below for other reasons why building or buying new may be the better decision in today’s market.

Unwanted Bills & surprises

As mentioned above, the housing market is at an all-time high for used homes. You are more than likely paying way over what the house is worth and don’t know what kind of surprises that home may hold once moved in. Getting into a remodeling project can go beyond the cost you initially hoped for and surprise you with more things that need fixing or replacing. Building new or buying new would take the stress and worry off completely. Then you would be putting your hard-earned money into a home that will last for years and not give any unwanted surprises. 

Focus on Energy

Our focus on energy program allows you to save money on energy costs, such as monthly electrical, space heating, and cooling savings. Not only that, but we also provide multiple inspections to ensure airtightness and leakage prevention. 


There will be no need to replace any appliances such as the furnace, A/C water heater, etc., in your home because we provide the most up-to-date home features in every home we build and all come with a full warranty.

Witness building process first hand

With Midwest Design Homes, we take you through the entire build process of your home from start to finish. Picking out exactly what you want from countertops to paint colors. As our client, you are front and center to all the steps of building your home. 

Home warranty

When buying a used home on the market, you don’t have the warranty to stand by your home to protect you when things go wrong. Midwest Design Homes has a 1-year warranty on the workmanship of the house and a lifetime guarantee on the basement and has extended warranties beyond one year on everything in your home.
