* Although these costs are only estimates, you can easily see the   
value of add-ons to pre-existing homes when considering the cost of   
a new home.            
               
* Another major benefit of purchasing an existing home is the size   
of the remaining BOND which will generally be lower or possibly paid  
OFF!              
               
* Do you like to cook with electric or gas.  Most new homes are totally   
electric while most existing homes are set up for gas and/or electric.
