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!

3. Less Stress and More Family Time
When you work with Judd Builders, you get to see the home building process all the way through. There is no reason for you to feel stress while we build your dream home. Not only is the new construction process with Judd Builders less stressful, but you will also have more time on your hands because we will be doing all the work for you. Forget putting all that work into remodeling a pre-owned home, let Judd build a home for you and you can spend your time doing whatever you please!

4. Quality Workmanship
Here at Judd Builders we take pride in our building process and quality workmanship. So when you buy a new construction home with us we ensure that you get the quality you expect and the home you deserve. 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.

Choosing The Right Sized Home for a Retired Couple

Comfortable white double sofa

Looking to downsize? Facing retirement? Congratulations! With your children well grown and perhaps even your grandchildren, it’s time to start thinking about the next phase of your life. As a retired couple, you may not need a lot of space anymore, plus your needs have changed over the years.

Exploring Your Interests and Lifestyle

How much room is enough room for the two of you? Well, that’s a fairly subjective question that’s different for everyone. However, that’s the first thing you should ask yourself. Do you have pets? Do you watch your grandchildren during the day? Do you have hobbies that require a lot of extra space, such as woodworking or scrapbooking? Once you decide on how much room you need, you can move on to other aspects of finding the right sized home.

Consider lifestyle – not just now but in the future as well. If you still love to entertain, you may want a large kitchen with dining room and great room big enough to house seating for guests. If you have frequent guests over for the night, such as family members and grandkids, you’ll need more than one bedroom. If you don’t entertain a lot and just prefer to be casual, you can ditch the formal dining room and parlor.

Community Life

Many retired couples find the appeal of an over-55 community attractive. They can enjoy quiet days in the company of other like-minded adults of a similar age. Other couples, however, don’t care for the isolation this involves and would prefer to live in a regular neighborhood with a variety of people around them.

Health Needs

Consider your overall health when considering the size of your home. If you have arthritis, a bad back, or other mobility issues, you may want to consider single-level living. Having no stairs means you can move from place to place without pain and inconvenience. You may also want to opt out of any sunken living rooms. Even one step can pose a problem with aging retirees.

While no one wants to think about it, you may want to plan for the possibility of being wheelchair-bound or having to use a walker when you’re older. That means wider hallways, 36-inch doorways and more of an open floor plan. In the bathroom, you may want to incorporate a step-in shower with no lip at the bottom and plenty of grab bars. Extra storage space that’s convenient to access, as well as appliances and countertops that are easy to reach, possibly from a wheelchair someday, are also good to have.

Need help choosing the right sized home for you as you retire? Judd Builders has long been at the forefront in building high quality homes with the best materials and award-winning home designs in the most desirable neighborhoods. Call or visit one of our spectacular 55+ communities: Renaissance at Morgan Creek in Quakertown, PA or Meadow View Farms in Oley, PA. We can design the perfect home so you can live out your Golden Years in comfort.”
