Are you ready to upgrade your life with a home that is unique to you? Do you wish for more space to entertain family and friends or more property to enjoy? Because of the many growing communities in NE Indiana, building a new home can be a great way to obtain the location, amenities, floor plan, and design and that you desire. Here are some of the benefits of new home construction as well as a few things to take into consideration:
CHOICE OF LOCATION AND SURROUNDINGS
The choice of building in the country, on the lake, or in a new community is entirely up to you! Country homes come with the possibility of increased privacy and the simple peace of quiet evenings among the trees. Living on the lake is a dream of many and it’s easy to see why. With the fun of outdoor activities and beach parties with family and friends, a custom lake home becomes the centerpiece of life long memories. Finally, building in a new community subdivision comes with different but very desirable amenities like being close to shopping centers and dining, and there is even the possibility of walking your kids to school.
FREEDOM OF DESIGN
Another perk to building new is the freedom to create the home you’ve always imagined. From fresh new colors and unique style elements to energy efficient appliances and the latest smart home technology, there are endless possibilities to imagine. You might start with a modern layout for the home and then consider your family’s daily routines and request a floorplan that will simplify and streamline your life. Each choice you make for your new home will reflect your unique personality and interests while also providing perfect spaces to enjoy life’s most important moments.
NEW MEANS NEW
When you build a new home, you get exactly that - everything from the floors to the roof are brand new! Buying an existing home can often come with “hidden” costs and expenses for unexpected repairs or upgrades. All factors considered, it can be costly and labor intensive to repair or remodel an older home to modern specifications. There are also many loans and financing options you can get only when building a new home.
CHOOSING A BUILDER
Northeast Indiana residents will have a great opportunity to see model homes from some of Fort Wayne’s premier builders at the Spring Town & Country Tour, Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28 and May 4 and 5. The annual spring tour is presented by the Home Builders Association of Fort Wayne and is free and self-guided, allowing you to explore communities and build sites across the region.
