There are many factors to consider. Zillow did a study were tha main factor for people to choose one over the other was price. The norm was that a new construction home used to cost more than a resale, but that is not true anymore if you consider all factors.

Also consider other factors such as possibility of negociating closing costs and avoiding hidden expenses in repairs, having a home warranty and reduced costs in electricity. Buying a new home, beside of being able to enjoy an untouched and clean home it's more affordable than it seems at plein view.
