Why Buy New Homes

by Arelys Alexander

 If you’re in the market for a new home, you’ve more than likely heard the opinions of friends and family on whether you should buy an existing home or take advantage of a resale opportunity.  Truth is, the type of home for you is the home that checks off all of the boxes on your list of needs and wants, and fits in with the lifestyle you seek.  Do you want a new construction home that you can see come to life from blueprints or do you want a home with a history of inspections so that you are well-aware of any bumps you may run into down the road?  Each option has its set of pros and cons, but here are the reasons we think you are going to love the new homes at Mediterra.

Finding the Perfect Neighborhood

Many luxury home communities offer new construction homes, but finding a resale property may be hit or miss, especially in neighborhoods with home sites that have just been released.  For example, in Mediterra, we still have several neighborhoods with available home sites and each one of them features a unique characteristic all their own.  A couple of them are new construction homes only at this point.  Of course, if you would like a beautiful villa home in a lake view neighborhood adjacent to the luxury home community’s lush parks and perfectly manicured walking trails, then finding a home site in our Lucarno neighborhood or Cabreo neighborhood is just what you need.  Or maybe you would like a luxury estate home with a view of the Tom Fazio-designed golf course from your outdoor living space, then your tour should be of our Cortile neighborhood.

The Reliability of New Homes


One size does not fit all, which is why working with a Naples custom home builder may be your best option to knowing you’ll be getting a home layout that best suits you and your family.  A resale property will only give you one floor plan with which to work, unless you want to purchase the home and then dive into a remodeling project.  With new homes, you can find a floor plan that is perfect for you from the start or you can customize the floor plan to fit your exact needs and then watch your vision come to life.

Upon completion, you’ll also have peace of mind knowing that nothing will break down or need to get replaced because everything is brand new.  In the rare instances where something does happen, you can breathe easy knowing your home is still under warranty.

Have the Best in Technology and Efficiency

Technology is constantly evolving and the best way to have the most advanced technology and design is to purchase a new home.  Mediterra works with London Bay Homes, a luxury home builder with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, to ensure that our homeowners get the very best.  London Bay Homes utilizes the latest, specialized building techniques and technology as standard for every single one of their new homes, including top-of-the-line HVAC, spray foam, energy efficient control 4 system, impact resistant doors and windows, and the BEP Blue Barrier system, among many other advancements.  The BEP Blue Barrier system is a moisture barrier system - or liquid-applied “house wrap” - that protects the home against future mold issues and structural damage caused by moisture intrusion.  Standard nail-applied “house wraps” are easily damaged during construction and are not as effective at the seam and in the transitions to windows and doors.  With the BEP Blue Barrier system, the areas around the perimeter of windows and doors, mechanical penetrations in the structure, transitions of roof lines, and other exterior details will keep moisture and mold away, while keeping your cool air inside.

Luxury Amenities

Okay, so we are not going to try to make anyone think that the only way you can take advantage of the many luxury amenities in new home communities is to purchase new homes, but you may come across some limitations.  Purchasing either a new construction home or resale property will give you access to Mediterra’s themed neighborhood parks; eight miles of walking and jogging trails; a fitness complex with tennis and bocce courts, swimming pool and spa services; the 29,000-square-foot clubhouse offering formal and casual dining prepared by a staff of award-winning culinary experts; and the private 10,000-square-foot Beach Club on the Gulf of Mexico.  What we can tell you is that golf memberships are limited.  Currently, the golf membership has reached capacity, but there is still a way to ensure you get your membership to these award-winning greens.

Membership opportunities in Mediterra are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes to ensure tee time availability for members. Currently, the waiting time for a golf membership is one year when you purchase an existing home in Mediterra. However, if you purchase a new construction home, Mediterra has reserved a membership opportunity just for you! Find your new dream home and have instant access to your golf membership opportunity, no waiting time necessary.

If you are still interested in purchasing an existing Mediterra home, then we can still be of assistance.  Our knowledgeable Sales Executives are on-hand to answer any of your questions and show you the resale properties we have available.
