For the last twelve months, we have all felt the restrictions of our own homes as we sat patiently through lockdowns and restrictions. Some of us have had to make difficult choices about where we live, and who we live with. As we look to better times ahead, we have all been forced to re-evaluate what is most important to us and to be brutally honest about all the ways our current homes are falling short.
If you are thinking about moving home in the months to come, you certainly won’t be alone, but before you start looking it’s important to take a step back. Firstly, because these things should never be rushed. Secondly, because there may be an option that you haven’t considered.
New home communities are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners of all ages, and with good reason. Let’s take a look at just three.
New Build Homes Are Top Of The Line
How many times have you moved into a new home only to discover that the previous owner made some disastrous plumbing choices? Or that heating the bedroom to a bearable temperature is racking up a ridiculous energy bill? When you move into a new home, you can rest assured that it will have been constructed according to the latest guidelines. A responsible firm will have one eye on sustainability and environmental protection, so make sure to do your homework to see if you’re moving into a green community.
New Build Communities Have That Neighbourhood Spirit
As we mentioned, over the last year or so we have got to know the insides of our houses pretty well, and it’s clear that this is not ideal going forward. Those of us with children want them to grow up in a neighborhood where they feel safe and welcome, where there is a real community spirit and not just that one person you trust to take that package in for you while you’re out of town.
With a new build community, you know that you can be as much a part of the neighborhoods as you want to. For example, the community in Hillstowe, Officer comes with a park, barbeque areas and community spaces, with playground and kickabout space for the kids. Hillstowe is made up of just 225 blocks and is a great example of what a new build community can offer.
New Build Communities Get You Out Of The City
There comes a time for every family when the benefits of getting away from the hustle and bustle, the smog and the crush of the big city become increasingly apparent. With a new build community, you can still look for a location that is close enough to your place of work to make sure that you are not completely isolated, but you know that you will be at a far enough remove from the tower blocks and traffic so you can breathe a little easier.
What’s more, most new build communities come with open green areas, so you will have plenty of space to get some fresh air into those lungs!
