Building a home can be overwhelming. In the past, it was known to be very expensive, time-consuming, and stressful. With today’s advances in technology, you can build a home that fits your price point, in a more reasonable timeframe, have the customized high-end finishes leaving less work with remodeling, and with a realtor that has your best interests in mind, the stress is minimized.
West Metro Denver offers amazing new neighborhoods in every price point and types of homes, also adding amenities to fit your lifestyle. There are several neighborhoods to choose from, like Green Gables Reserve in Lakewood, Sterling Ranch in Littleton, and BackCountry in Highlands Ranch. These neighborhoods also have multiple builders that offer different styles to be chosen from based on exactly what is important in your home.
Another big perk to building a home is it comes with a 1-10 year limited builder’s warranty. While warranties vary most builder warranties provide coverage on workmanship for one year, systems defects are covered for two years, and foundation coverage for up to 10 years. It is peace of mind to know that you have a warranty to fall back on just in case something isn’t correct or in proper working order after moving in.
Researching all the information can be extremely confusing but this site, New Homes & Builders has a lot of the research laid out and readily available. Choosing from a price point, how many bedrooms and bathrooms, and the square footage you are looking for can all help to start getting a better idea what fits into what your needs and wants are. Finding a builder that is an expert in what you are looking for is important for the best outcome in your new home. Beyond that, you can save searches, receive email alerts, and ask us questions about certain neighborhoods, builders, etc.
When building a home, there are a lot of things that are important to consider but often overlooked. What is included in the base price of the home, what is considered to be an upgrade, what does the HOA require or restrict. Additionally, you’ll want to research if there is a metropolitan district tax and how much is it and how much detail you can put into customizing your home. The experience of building starts the dream of having a home that is completely yours, nobody else has put their touches on it! It’s exciting to have a brand-new home, and it is easy to forget things in that excitement. Having a realtor that is a specialist in the building experience on your side looking out for your best interests is also an important piece to factor in. You want the best experience possible for coordinating a smooth transition.
