When shopping for a new home why not buy a truly new home. What most home buyers don’t realize is newly built homes are up to 30% more efficient than homes built just 10 years ago according to New Home Source. But there are even more reasons to buy a NEW home, for example the design.

1)Design Your Dream Home Your Way: Building a new home is about getting what you want not leftovers. Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can select your favorite cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring? Personalize your new home by extending the rooms such as the master suite or great room. Increase light and create a space that is not just livable but gorgeous.

2)Choose a Floor Plan and Room Layout you love and that Meets Your Needs: The key to an amazing home is the floorplan. It’s the bones of a new home and everything else is just added to it. The number one reason a buyer has chosen EDGE as a builder is the floorplan selection and incredible designs, which includes over 50 choices with 150 elevations. Buyers want new fresh ideas that aren’t outdated from years past. Want a master bedroom on the first floor? It’s yours. With massive his and her’s walk-in closets?  Design your plan online. This is a really cool tool to help you create your dream home. Start with the floorplans at EDGEhomes.com then use the interactive floorplan tool to customize. What a fun way to design your home the way you want it.

3)Choose colors & textures that you love: buying a new home includes the latest designs. There are so many options today. In the kitchen do you love white, gray or even a restoration cabinet color? Another big trend is the tile and hardwood craze. The options are so unique that your personal style really shows. Wall colors are also trendy. Grays are really in right now. Check out the flooring designs with tile that has flair on the floor, shower surrounds and on the walls. Quartz countertops offer the contemporary colors that are in right now. What an awesome way to get the wow factor.

4)Light is a must have: new homes are designed with more windows and better use of light. This great room has high ceilings and incorporates large windows that are double stacked to take advantage of the views. The large windows/doors in the kitchen nook are not only functional but bring in the light. The exterior of home is also impacted by the design of the windows. A great way to add personality to a new home.

5)Community Designs: When you drive into your neighborhood the designs of the homes creates a community look and feel. A community design not only impacts the home you live in but the future value of your home. New home communities feature cool amenities like hiking trails, protected open lands and some of the best new schools and shopping near (or even within) your new home community. The views create a design out the windows. For example the new model at Canyon Hills has inspiring views that are incredible.
