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!

Being the First Isn’t the Worst

Construction at The Reserve at Glen Loch

With many people preferring new homes to existing homes, you might be wondering if a new construction home is for you. New construction means exactly that, a brand new house that hasn’t been lived in before or homes purchased in the pre-construction phase. There is a lot of allure to new construction homes, which is why being the first person to build in a new planned community isn’t the worst, especially when you buy a new construction home from Judd Builders!

You Get Your Choice of Homesite
When you’re one of the first buyers in a new construction community, you’ll get to enjoy the benefits of being able to choose the homesite you want your new construction house to sit on. Not only do you get to choose from some of the best lots available, but you can also pick which model home you want too, which is especially important if you are moving into a carriage or townhome community!

Better Pricing
Buying a new construction home during pre-sales or pre-construction is more beneficial due to better pricing. During pre-construction new home prices are generally less than they would be later on during construction and development. As construction progresses and later phases are released, prices may increase, which is why being one of the first people to buy in a brand new, new construction community is a better investment!

More Personal Attention From the Homebuilder
By being one of the first buyers of a new construction home in a new community you will also enjoy the perks of more personal attention from the homebuilder. Here at Judd, we want to make your dream home a reality. Whether it’s in our newest community The Reserve at Glen Loch or one of our other planned communities, we will build you a high quality home with an extremely high level of fit and finish. When you build a new construction home with Judd Builders, you will get the personal attention you deserve so that your dream house comes to fruition.

It Pays to Be the First
There are so many benefits to being one of the first buyers in a new community of new construction homes. From picking your homesite to getting personal attention from the homebuilder, you don’t want to miss out on these perks. However, you can also enjoy numerous other perks like: having a new home with design elements of today’s lifestyle demands (i.e. open concept floorplans, eat-in kitchens, walk-in closets, and an owner’s suite with an attached owner’s bath.), living a virtually maintenance free lifestyle, moving into a house with your customized finishes, all the work is done for you with the best construction materials, and you get to enjoy that new house smell!

Interested in moving into a wonderful planned community? Why not check out one of Judd Builders many wonderful communities, especially our newest community The Reserve at Glen Loch! With a distinct blend of brand new carriage and townhomes in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, you won’t want to miss your chance to live at The Reserve at Glen Loch!

What to Expect Before, During, & After Your Build

If you’re considering or decided on a new construction home, there are a lot of things you have to understand. Figuring out what you want and need from your dream home, what goes on during the building process, and what happens after your dream home is built is a lot to comprehend, therefore it’s important to know exactly what to expect when building a new construction home. In order to make the process as stress free as possible here is what to expect before, during, and after your build.

Prior to the Build
The first thing you have to do is pick a trusted builder to work with. However, before the build you’ll want to ask both yourself and the builder a lot of questions. Ask yourself: How much square footage do you need and want? What kind of floorplan will work best for you? What kind of community do you want to live in? What can you afford? Are you approved of a loan? You’ll want to make sure you hammer out all of these details and more to make sure you can afford to make your dream home come to fruition. After that, you’ll work with your builder to choose a home site and than the building process will begin.

During the Build
There will be a lot going on during the build of your new construction home. Site preparation, laying foundation, framing the house, installation of heating and cooling units, plumbing lines, and electrical systems, laying flooring, painting, and installing fixtures and appliances are only a few of the things taking place. Towards the end of the build, the tiny details will be added to finalize the build of your home. Faucets and fixtures will be installed and your front yard will undergo a transformation. However, you don’t want to delay closing and change your mind last-minute on finishes. Therefore, you should make these decisions early in the process. Here at Judd we have our very own Design Studio to help you choose selections and options that meet your needs and personal design style. However, if you still want to find more inspiration check out some of these helpful resources.

  • Pinterest is perfect to find inspiration for you home design and to search for fun DIY projects to help with creating your personal home décor. Towards the beginning of the build, start pinning ideas/inspiration that will help you make decisions with your overall home design.
  • Better Homes and Gardens covers any a multitude of design projects that can help you in the process of planning your home design/décor. From gardening to furniture arrangement, you’ll find all the tips you need at Better Home and Gardens.
  • Houzz is super helpful when it comes to your design needs. This site helps you connect with designers and professionals, while providing great visuals and advice about home decorating. The site even shows you where you can buy certain items if you’ve fallen in love with a piece! 

After the Build
Finally, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for! After the build, you’ll be able to move in to your dream home! This is the best moment in the process however, there are still a couple of things to take care of before you formally close and move in. Once your home is complete make sure to do a “walk through.” Allow yourself to become settled in and accustomed to your new home and thoroughly examine all of its components. Take note of your home’s current features and think about potential add-ons you personally might want to include later. Also, even later down the line after closing on your new home submit a year-end warranty claim with your builder if necessary.

We have plenty of spectacular communities that fit the modern family’s needs, constructed in sought-after neighborhoods. For more information feel free to contact us!

What Makes a Great Builder

If you’re looking to build a new house, you’re obviously searching for a great home builder. But how do you know if you’re working with the right builder? Like any big purchase, you’ll want to do some research before you build your new home. There are a lot of important things to look for and ask when deciding to work with a home builder, especially one that excels in all areas like Judd Builders. So here are four things to look for when choosing a great builder.

Reputation
This seems rather commonplace to take into a consideration, but a home builder’s reputation is important when you look for a great builder. A good reputation is key to a great builder so you know you’ll love your home for years to come. You’ll want to keep your eyes out for positive reviews from past buyers or news stories about the builder before you make your decision.

Has a Strong Family and Community Ties
Like having a reputation, a great builder should also have strong family and community ties. You want to work with a builder that cares about you and your family and the community that they are creating. A builder that has strong community ties will be invested in building your home and making you feel part of the community, while also building a lasting relationship. So when you are looking for a great builder don’t look past their strong family and community ties.

Superior Service
A great builder should also provide superior service. Not only do you want your dream home to be properly built, but you want a home builder that provides the best service for you. Do they inform you of what’s going on before, during, and after the build? Are they available to talk and answer your questions when you call? Make sure to look into the builders’ service before deciding who you want to build your home.

Quality Work
A great home builder will deliver quality work. You should be able to place trust in your builder and have the security of knowing they will help build your dream house. Not only do you want a builder with quality work, but you’ll want to work with a builder that uses quality materials as well. This is your future house; the design and construction of it should reflect the needs of you and your family. Never settle for anything less when working with a builder. Instead look for a home builder that is committed to delivering the quality that makes a house a home.

If you’re considering building with a great builder with these qualifications look no further. Take some of the legwork out of your search and consider working with Judd Builders. Along with a great reputation, family and community ties, superior service, and quality work we also have the experience. We’ve been in business for 50 years and counting and it’s our goal to build your dream home. If you have any further questions or would like to know more feel free to contact us!
