How to Pick the Perfect Home Site for YOU

 

Picking the right site to build your home is arguably one of the most important decisions you will make throughout the entire process. Different home sites can affect the layout of your future home, the price of construction, and your level of interaction with neighbors. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when picking a home site.

Sloping Ground for Walk-Out Basements

Choosing a site with sloping grounds can be great if you’re hoping to include a walk-out basement. These types of basements include either windows or doors, depending on what you need. Walk-out basements offer easy access to your yard and a ton of beautiful natural lighting. Adding these elements to your home can transform a traditional basement into a beautiful living space.

Wooded Areas for Shade and Privacy

Are you hoping to move into a more secluded area, possibly on the edge of your neighborhood? Wooded sites offer all the privacy you could want. These sites are perfect for anyone who wants a little separation from neighbors without moving to a rural area. Other benefits of wooded homesites include added shade and a scenic view. If you opt for this type of site, be sure to consider including a backyard sitting area. You’ll love the secluded, wooded view you’re greeted by every day.

Flat Ground for Games, BBQs, and More 

Is your family big on playing games outside? We’re talking volleyball, bocce ball, soccer, badminton – really anything you can play with just a little flat space. Or maybe you love hosting backyard bashes, barbeques, and bonfires. If so, picking a flat home site will be ideal for you. You can create the ideal backyard, including landscaping, by opting for this type of home site.

There are plenty of other considerations for choosing a home site. The first step you should take is figuring out what you want from your home. Are you looking for a house built for entertainment? Are you looking to maximize space by opening your basement up as another living space? Or perhaps you’re looking for a place of peace and privacy. There’s no wrong answer to what’s important to you. The next step is choosing the right site to fit that.

Tile vs. Laminate vs Vinyl vs. Wood Flooring: Tips for Choosing the Right Flooring for My New Home

Decisions, decisions. Though having options is usually looked at as a major benefit, it can also lead to a healthy dose of what is known as analysis paralysis – freezing up because there are simply too many options at your fingertips. We see this happen all too often with new homeowners trying to figure out which flooring option is right for them – and for good reason. Flooring is often the largest financial investment you’ll make on your new home.

Buying a home for the first time is always a substantial moment in one’s life. There are so many considerations: Can I afford to buy a home? Is it in the right neighborhood? How are the nearby schools? Is there enough room for my family? The list of hard questions asked before signing on the dotted line are seemingly endless at times. Once many of these concerns are sorted and you do find a house you could see yourself calling home, the next natural question is how should you fund the down payment?
