Why Should I Buy a New Home?

At Compass Homes, your Columbus custom home builders, we build new, custom and semi-custom homes. We put a lot of thought into each & every home we build, providing you with the home of your dreams at the highest quality possible! “More thought per square foot” is the creed we live by, and we do it well. But why should you buy a new build from us instead of a resale home?

Energy Efficiency

Our newly constructed homes have to meet tough national code standards for energy efficiency and ventilation, making your home better at energy consumption and air quality. And we consistently exceed the standards by having some of the best HERS (Home Energy Rating System) scores in central Ohio.


Need to add more wiring for sound systems, wi-fi, outlets, or communication equipment? A newly built home gives you the flexibility to add whatever you need to power your home effectively.

Room Layout

Dreaming of a bigger great room or better designed kitchen? This is not a problem with our new builds, since walls can be moved or eliminated. Add a laundry room to the 2nd floor if you want, or put a media room or wine room in the basement. The sky’s the limit with room layout! We design exactly what you want.

Everything is New

Therefore, you don’t have to replace heating or air conditioning, floors, carpet, water tanks, roofs, or appliances. Nothing has to be repainted. You have the latest designs, colors, and products.


All electricity is to code. You don’t have to worry about any materials used in building the home, as products continue to feature fewer volatile organic compounds & other environmentally friendly materials.

The Neighborhood

Most of our new builds are in communities with bike & walking trails, community centers or clubhouses, open green spaces, the best schools, and shopping & restaurants nearby. We also have new builds in established areas like Upper Arlington, giving you life in a great neighborhood, but with a brand new home!

It’s New!

No one has lived in it, it’s your dream come true! You’ve selected everything and made it your own for your family. You don’t have to do any work before moving in.

If you’re ready to build a new home in Jerome Village, Dublin, OH, Upper Arlington, or anywhere in central Ohio, contact us so that we can work with you! We have sites available in many areas, or we can build on your lot. We also have some newly built homes that are ready for you to move right in, getting all of the benefits of building a new home, but not having to do any of the decision making!
