When you begin searching for a new home, you have two options:
Resale or to Buy New
How do you decide which option is the best for you? Anyone who has bought a used home or helped with a renovation knows there can be many challenges along the way, both planned and unplanned.
Older homes have dated layouts with closed-off rooms and tiny closets.
Our Life Collection™ homes are designed to utilize every square inch, offering:
This means more memorable moments together without having to take on the additional stress of a renovation.
Updating an older home to the current decade takes time and can be very costly.
From replacing lighting and hardware to updating bathroom vanities and cabinetry—each detail requires someone to complete and if you’re not equipped with the proper tools, it can be pricey to hire a professional.

New homes in new communities are built on lots that are longer and narrower than some wider/shallower lots that some older homes are built on (to meet modern population density requirements of municipalities)).
The advantages of these new lots are affordability and lifestyle:
Save money on land
Build a bigger/better home for less
Less yard maintenance
Greater sense of community
Older lots can offer more outdoor space, but their homes are also older which increases the need for costly repairs and renovations – or even demolishing an existing home and rebuilding – in order to get any new home features, efficiencies and conveniences.
