How to Choose the Right Homesite

Homesite Construction at The Reserve at Glen Loch

Nothing compares to a new construction home being built just for you and your family! Here at Judd Builders, we want to make your dream house a reality. Building a new construction home is an exciting experience! From choosing the right floorplan for you family to choosing the design finishes you know you’ll love, there is a lot to consider when buying a new construction home. However, when you are considering the type of floorplan and design finishes, you also want to think about the homesite your future dream home is being built on. Make sure to choose the right homesite in one of our many wonderful communities with these helpful tips!

Decide on the Type of Homesite You Want
When you are choosing a homesite you should work out all the details up front, so you don’t end up with surprises at the end. Think about what you want in your future home. Are you planning on having a family? Do you want more yard space? Do you want to be further away from the main roads? Also think about things you might want to add to your homesite later on once your dream home is built. Do you love to garden and need more land? Is there enough safe space for my kids to play? There are different types of homesites to choose from, which all have pros and cons based on what you need.

  • Cul-de-sacs

These types of homesites are perfect for families that are looking for bigger backyard space. Homesites set in cul-de-sacs are typically better for families because they have less “neighborhood traffic” to deal with, due to being set back from the main roads of the neighborhood. So if you have a family, or are planning to start a family, a homesite within a cul-de-sac might be best for you!

  • Corner Homesites

Corner homesites are known to have more land associated with the lot. These corner homesites offer side and backyard, which is more land. So if you are looking for a larger lot, consider choosing corner homesite.

  • Homesites with End Unit Homes

If you’re looking at a community that sells townhomes, you’ll want to think about what kind of unit you want as well as what will be the right homesite for your family. End unit homes tend to let in more sunlight because they have additional windows and they may have more yard space; also end units offer a little more privacy because they aren’t between two other homes. However, end unit homes tend to be priced a little higher than interior homes, due to these added perks.

  • Homesites with Interior Unit Homes

Interior units are in between the other townhome units and share two common walls instead of one like an end unit home. However, contrary to popular belief these homes have many benefits! From less utility costs to less exterior maintenance, interior homes might be the best choice for your family depending on your needs. Also, interior units tend to be less expensive, so you could save some extra money if you buy an interior home in a townhome community!

Sun Exposure
Believe it or not, the direction your house faces is extremely important when picking a homesite! You’ll want to pick the lot that has the right relationship to the sun. Western exposure captures the afternoon sun, eastern exposure captures the morning sun, while Southern exposure captures solar rays during most of the day. You might also want to think about gardening or landscaping when it comes to sun exposure. If you are a huge gardener or plan to garden, then you’ll want to make sure your backyard has enough sunlight. The same goes for front yard landscaping as well!

Think about the Location in the Subdivision
Once you’ve taken all the must-have characteristics of a homesite into consideration, think about where you want to be located in the subdivision. Depending on where you choose to live in the subdivision will have different “neighborhood traffic” patterns. Do you want to be near the entrance or tucked away into the subdivision? It all depends on your preferences, so take some time to think about where you want your homesite to be located!

Check With Your Builder
When you are choosing a homesite make sure to check with your builder. Ask about what homesites are available as well as any information or restrictions the lot might have. By asking your builder for more information on a homesite, you will have less trouble when selecting the right homesite for your dream home!

What Happens Next
Once you’ve made the important choices about choosing the right homesite and type of floorplan you want, then you can decide on the design selections! With the help of our design studio, you’ll be able to choose all the finishes you want in your new construction home. The best part about it is you won’t have to lift a finger and do any of the manual work! Your dream home will be built in the perfect homesite you chose with all the wonderful finishes!

What are the Advantages of Buying a New Construction Home

Whispering Pines: The Fredericksburg Model

Are you looking to buy a home but you are unsure of what you want? Do you feel like you can’t find your dream home? Well, maybe you should consider buying a new construction home! When you buy a new construction home, you’ll have choices and options to make your dream home a reality. On top of that there are so many advantages when you buy a new construction home that you will enjoy in the long run. Here are five of the many advantages of buying a new construction home!

1. Less Maintenance
Today’s homes are built specifically to minimize home maintenance. All that extra time you would have spent on a pre-owned home is now freed up and you can do whatever you want with that time. Spend time with your family or take up a hobby that you are passionate about. Whatever it is, you can easily spend your free time however you see fit when you buy a new construction house! Seriously, who wouldn’t love having more time on their hands to do what they love? It’s a win-win situation!

2. Best Locations with Amazing Amenities
Most new construction homes are built in planned communities, which are developed in up and coming, sought-after areas. This is particularly true when it comes to Judd Builders’ communities. All of our communities are all located in fantastic areas that are highly desired and include amazing amenities. From Brookshire’s spectacular views to Siena Place’s rich culture and entertainment, you can’t go wrong with a new construction home in these desirable areas!

We use the best materials while we’re building and provide an extremely high level of fit and finish. We are committed to delivering the quality that makes a house a home so that every home buyer is satisfied with their choice.

5. Fewer Repairs
When you buy a new construction home, you won’t have to worry about making repairs any time soon. New construction means that everything is new. Unlike pre-owned homes, a new construction home hasn’t seen years of wear and tear. You won’t be replacing flooring, or re-painting walls, or fixing up home exteriors. Instead, enjoy all the perks of a new construction home and spend time with your family or enjoy activities you love to do.

Tips for Organizing Your Closet

organzing-a-closetMany Judd Builders homes feature beautiful walk-in closets, including Brookshire, our community of the month located in Zionsville, PA. Here are a few tips to make your closet easy to tidy and help your wardrobe stay organized and look its very best!

  1. Group clothes by color and style.
  2. Stack cubbies across the closet floor to create space for shoes.
  3. Make sure shelves are adjustable, and line them with smooth vinyl matting. Cut the matting to fit each shelf, and fasten it with double-sided tape.
  4. Dry-clean garments before storing them for the season. Sugar stains (such as wine) can set and spread over time.
  5. Remove dry-cleaning bags, which trap moisture; use fabric bags instead. And don’t store wool or silk in airtight containers — they need to breathe.
