One of the first decisions you'll have to make in the home buying process is whether you want a new or used home.  We may seem slightly biased, but there really are more reasons now than ever to purchase a new home.  Every year, building practices and materials improve; when you buy new you ensure you get the latest and greatest.  Here are 7 reasons why buying new is the right choice.



Today's trends - open plans, spacious kitchens, multiple-car garages - reflect the way today's families live.  It's far easier to select a floor plan that suits your needs than retrofit an older home to do so.  We have 30+ years of experience in new home design and have developed a robust collection of award-winning homes to choose from.

THE RIGHT Homesite

Have you always wanted a corner lot?  A home on a cul-de-sac?  Do you prefer a large homesite with room to run?  Or the efficiency of a small one?  When you purchase new, you'll have the opportunity to hand-select the homesite that meets your wants and needs. 


Our master-planned communities boast great schools and offer amenities like walking trails, parks, and community centers in addition to providing easy access to thoroughfares, retail shopping and dining. 

Know What You're Getting

Even with the help of a professional inspector, it's hard to get the full picture on what's behind the walls of a used home. Was it built well to begin with?  How has it been cared for?  We love showing off how our homes are built, which is why we offer multiple opportunities during the building process to learn about the way your home is being built.


Today's homes are built to a higher standard in terms of energy efficiency.  From low-e windows to sealed ductwork, we work hard to stay on top of the latest building science to bring you a smart and efficient home that lives comfortably.  (Learn more, here.)


From the structure itself to the interior finishes, "new" doesn't just look great, it works great.  Plus, many items - and even the whole home - will come with a warranty.  The can help protect your pocketbook from major unforeseen expenses related to replacements and repairs of old components.


From flooring to countertops, backsplashes to lighting, our Design Studio offers thousands of ways to personalize your home.  Plus, working with a designer takes the stress out of decision-overload and ensures your final product looks gorgeous.
