Welcome to the launch of New England HomeLife’s monthly feature, New Home Living. In this issue and moving forward our editorial team will introduce you to some of the most respected builders and developers in New England. New Home Living will offer a prospective monthly on the industry, trends and properties throughout Southern New England.
Visit nehomlife.com/newhomeliving to read all our monthly reviews. Today’s new homes offer more benefits than ever before. There are numerous styles and designs by hundreds of regional builders that offer unlimited choices to consumers at a multitude of price points. New homes are one of the largest growth sectors in the housing industry today. This market trend has engaged builders and developers to create new styles and designs for consumers that are as diverse as the communities they are built it.
New Home Living is all about preferences, why settle for someone else’s choices when you can make your own. Choose your own cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring. While you’re at it, you can choose gorgeous bath and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you love. Your new home will reflect your style, not someone else’s taste.
Choose a Floor Plan and Room Layout that Meets Your Needs: New homes today are very different from their counterparts 20 -30 years ago. The small rooms and boxy styles of the past have long since been replaced with open floor plans, more expansive living areas and feature rich amenities. There are endless possibilities for floor plans, layouts and use of living space.
New Home Advantages – Under Warranty A used home likely has tired products that may soon need replacing. Your new home — and the products that comprise it — are brand-new and under warranty. The cost to replace a roof, appliances, countertops, a kitchen or new baths in an older home can add up quickly. Those components of your new home feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement.
Energy and Cost Savings Today’s new homes are far more energy efficient than homes built just 10 years ago. New home builders are held to stringent energy standards and codes not in place in the past. They combine high-performance energy efficiency with state-of-the-art ventilation and air filtration. The result is year-round, draft-free comfort and higher indoor air quality. They’re also made of cutting-edge building products that require less care and maintenance.
Community Amenities Many new homes are built in lavish master-planned communities with resort-style community centers, pools and clubhouses. Many new home communities also feature hiking trails, protected open lands and some of the best new schools and shopping near (or even within) your new home community. Remember location is the most important decision when it comes to your new home.
Advanced Technology and Green Living New homes today are smart homes. Automation and technology have huge advances in home building. Fully automated entry systems, security systems, entertainment systems and maintenance systems keep us informed continually on a daily basis. Electric garage door openers with safety infrared beams, high-efficiency furnaces and air conditioners that use the latest environmentally-friendly coolants, cabinets, carpets and paints that use fewer volatile organic compounds, so that you and your family can breathe easier.
New homes offer the latest designs, style, comfort and quality. They provide a care-free lifestyle so that you can enjoy your home, not work on it.
