New vs. Used: The Advantages of a New Home at Legends Bay


We believe your home should reflect you inside and out — and while a used home has all the “pieces,” it doesn’t have the heart… When you own a new home that’s been built just for you, you get to make your space entirely yours from top to bottom, without having to sacrifice any of the choices that are most important to you.


A beautiful new Medallion home in resort-style Legends Bay offers unbeatable benefits that make everyday life as sweet as can be, and we can’t wait for you to experience all of the opportunities that await. Take a look at the advantages of a new Medallion home vs. any used home you’ve seen before:

Home Systems


  • Used: Old, antiquated systems that require repairs, and cause code concerns and maintenance issues
  • New: Shiny and new plumbing, electric, heating, and cooling systems that run efficiently


Style and Design


  • Used: Design choices that reflect another family from another time
  • New: Brand new systems and beautiful finishes (chosen by you) that reflect your personal style


Floor Plan


  • Used: A layout that’s completely out of your hands (and not in sync with your lifestyle)
  • New: An innovative, contemporary floor plan that fits your specific needs for number and location of rooms, overall space, and more


Warranty Program


  • Used: Depending on its age, the home and everything in it are likely long past warranty coverage, so no warranties mean large repair bills down the road (think about the cost of a new roof, heater, etc.)
  • New: Invaluable peace of mind every day with our limited time double warranty that’s extended for two years. See sales associate for more details. 


Energy Efficiency


  • Used: Missing many of the green and smart home features that you’re looking for today
  • New: Built with energy-wise construction that respects the environment, decreases your utility bills, and keeps you comfortable year-round


The Area


  • Used: An unfamiliar location, lot, or community that you didn’t necessarily want or choose
  • New: A peaceful, scenic location along the Sarasota Bay with the contemporary amenities you love, near everything that you need (world renowned IMG Academy, beaches, recreation, hospitals, etc.)

As you compare used homes vs. new home construction, be sure to consider just how much a brand new home will enhance your life. Aside from saving you money in the long run, a new Medallion home in gorgeous Legends Bay, with options of waterfront lots is your very own piece of paradise.
