7 Must-Have Features When Building Your New Home

Building a new home? There are several features that you should be sure to include in your new home, both for your convenience & comfort, as well as the re-sale value. Here is a list of 7 “must-haves” in your new home that you may or may not have considered:

1. Energy Efficient HVAC and Ventilation

Having an hvac system that fits the size of your home and is built for energy efficiency is key to your indoor comfort, energy savings, and system longevity.

2. Make sure your home is built for utility.

Install a utility sink in the garage, include a washroom/bathroom near the entrance, install faucets outside, and make sure you place outlets strategically. Once you move in, you will be glad you added those little extras.

3. Cathedral Ceilings, Palladium Windows, Large Kitchens and Baths

Not only will you enjoy the amenities and features, but, these are some of the most important features in the eyes of the potential buyer.

4. A Great Neighborhood

Location. Location. Location. Make sure your neighborhood is perfect for your family, whether it be near great schools, shopping, dining, or whether it be an upscale retirement community…make sure you research the home values in and around the neighborhood where you are looking to build.

5. Home Theater and Automated Systems

It’s easier and less expensive to build a home theater system into the plans from the start, than it is to retrofit. Think about your home theater and automation needs while you are in the planning phase of building your home.

6. Great Landscaping

Curb appeal is essential to the resale of a home. Landscaping can also be planned to enhance beauty, provacy, and security of a home.

7. Plenty of Storage

Spacious closets, pantries, and storage nooks are a necessity in your new home. Potential buyers will also look for storage potential
