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!

All of our communities are all located in fantastic areas that are highly desired and include amazing amenities.
