Another pro of buying new construction condos is that newly built structures have access to modern building materials. New homes are built with more energy efficiency in mind, which can lead to less expensive utility bills. Another pro is that maintenance is generally required less often because all of the appliances are brand new, notes Forbes.

Another con of buying new construction condos is that they tend to be less architecturally charming than older homes, and they don't have large backyards or a lot of space for children to play outdoors. New condos also don't have an established group of neighbors like homes in older neighborhoods generally do.
