Now Is A Great Time To Buy A New Home!

The uncertainty vexing the housing industry seems to be coming to an end in some markets – and builders couldn’t be happier.  New home buyers are benefiting from an historic opportunity, thanks to inventive designs, reduced pricing and low interest rates.

As the housing market has changed, builders have adjusted their product designs accordingly. For example, the call for smarter, more energy-efficient homes represents a hard truth: It costs a lot to build – and maintain – a home. From tighter lending to material costs to heating & cooling, homeownership can be an expensive proposition. In many markets, home designs have been scaled back, with the space being better utilized than in homes of the past.

Cottage, ranch and bungalow-style homes have been the answer for some markets. These homes have floor plans that are flexible, spacious and sustainable, while the smaller footprint means lower material costs for builders. Homeowners get a more affordable, more manageable version of their dream homes, and builders have a more affordable, more efficient line of homes to offer.  Everybody wins!

If you’re sitting on the fence, don’t wait too long.  Now really is a great time to buy a new home.

Are You Building A New Home? Think “Green”!

Categories: Energy Efficiency | Posted: February 5, 2013

There are many ways to be a “green” home buyer. Many of you know how you can help to save power and energy, but what about saving on your water consumption?  Consider the kitchen area, bathrooms, laundry rooms, outdoor irrigation, and pool/hot tub maintenance.

When building a brand new home, you have the advantage of choosing the appliances and fixture you want in your home.  Keep water conservation in mind when selecting items such as your dishwasher, toilet, and washer.  Other items to consider are your faucets, hot water heaters and sprinkler systems.  With all of the energy saving options out there, it isn’t hard to introduce energy saver brands in your home. These energy saving options not only help to conserve energy and help the environment, they can also help to save you and your family a lot of money. Many of these products will eventually pay for themselves over time with the savings.

Energy Star washers use about 37% less energy and over 50% less water than regular washers.  Many have a greater capacity as well, which means fewer loads of laundry. By switching to an Energy Star qualified washer, you could save $135 each year on your utility bills, and with this savings you could fill three average sized swimming pools!

These are just some of the examples that can show you what a difference building “green” can make!
