“Given a choice, why wouldn’t you want to move into a brand-new home?” ask Kimberly Garwood, Director of Marketing with Traton Homes, the renowned homebuilder with more than 46 years of experience in the greater Atlanta area.

“Here are our seven top reasons to select a fabulous new home instead of a resale – including some reasons that might not be obvious but that can really save you time and money in the long run.”

  1. When you move into a new Traton home, there is no need to replace old carpet or light fixtures, or refresh outdated paint colors or hardware. You get to fully enjoy your brand-new home from the moment the moving truck drives off.  Traton’s beautiful brand-new homes in single-family communities like Tanglewood Preserve or The Reserve at Old Atlanta offer the latest in floor plans, style, and quality. Instead of ticking off items on your ‘to-do’ list, you get to enjoy your new home and neighborhood right away.
  2. In a new home, you get to select your own cabinetry, countertops, appliances and flooring. Your new home will reflect your style and taste – not any previous owner’s.
  3. Your new home comes with a comprehensive warranty program that includes a one-year builder warranty and an eight-year structural warranty.
  4. All your appliances are brand-new. No-one has ever burned cookies in your oven or used (or abused) your garbage disposal.
  5. Traton Homes’ heating and air systems combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. Breathe easy: You and your family get to enjoy better air quality in every new Traton home.
  6. Save money on both maintenance as well as heating and cooling costs. New Traton homes that feature top quality construction materials reduce the need for ongoing maintenance and associated costs. Better insulation, including new doors and energy-efficient windows help save on heating and air conditioning costs.  As a general rule of thumb, buyers of an older home need to plan each year on spending at least 1% of the home’s purchase price to maintain it. In other words, when buying a $350,000 resale, the average costs for regular maintenance and repairs can run to $3,500 per year.
  7. Buy now and enjoy year-end tax benefits. If you are able to close by December 31, you can deduct costs such as property taxes, mortgage interest, origination points on your loan, and interest costs.

Buy New, Buy Now, Buy Here:

In Tanglewood Preserve, Traton’s picturesque community in Milton,  a few splendid new homes, situated on huge homesites, are ready for immediate move-in. The large 5-bedroom, 4.5 to 5.5 bath homes have 3-car garages, basements, stunning architectural details and fabulous outdoor living spaces. The kitchens are a chef’s delight, perfect for year-round entertaining.

In Suwanee (South Forsyth), buyers find premier living at its best in The Reserve at Old Atlanta. This desirable neighborhood with its magnificent clubhouse, pool, green space, and other stellar amenities, as well as its location in the Lambert High School district, is a great place to raise a growing family.

Top REALTOR® Carole Templeman Recommends Cobb Builder for Location, Quality, Resale Value

REALTOR® Carole Templeman, Associate Broker with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, has been selling residential real estate throughout Atlanta, and especially along the city’s northern arc, for more than 30 years – and has been working with Traton Homes, Cobb County’s premier homebuilder, ever since she launched her successful career.

Traton Homes offers the level of name recognition and the quality that appeal to my clients,” says Carole, who is a certified Relocation Specialist and Fine Homes Specialist. “Their craftsmanship, their well-designed floorplans, and their finishes are just top-notch.  My buyers are sophisticated and know what they want, and they like what they see when they step into a Traton home.

“Also, the company is always very careful when selecting the right location for their next new home community. Traton finds great parcels, and builds its homes on good sites. Furthermore, the team knows the importance of good area schools, shopping and easy access to Atlanta’s major traffic arteries,” she notes. “Great locations are a hallmark for this builder.

“Over the years, I have found that homes by Traton almost sell themselves – and then, when homeowners are moving, they are also easy to re-sell,” notes Carole. “I am happy to share that homeowners often realize a higher resale value for their Traton-built home – I love using that fact as a major reason to buy a Traton home.”

Carole notes that from her professional experience, Traton has been a great partner to work with. “They have a great team in place that has been with the company a long time. Everyone I deal with is very responsive and gets back to you within 24 hours. They do their utmost to make the buying process very easy for my clients – and that makes my job so much easier too.”

Since she works with a lot of relocation clients who may not yet know much about the different areas throughout North Atlanta, Carole likes to steer them to a Traton neighborhood. “Traton creates beautiful, safe and welcoming neighborhoods, and when they add amenities, they are always done well and with style.

“I love how Traton has evolved over the last 46 years since they first started in 1971. They embrace and incorporate new trends and build for today’s and tomorrow’s buyers,” she says. “Their innovative floorplans, fresh color choices and selection of premier appliances really set them apart among Atlanta’s homebuilders.”

Traton Homes has more than 46 years of homebuilding experience, and the company’s expertise shows in the homes’ beautiful finishes, elegant yet functional floorplans, and the company’s superb customer service and attention to detail.
