2024 New Construction Home Buying Guide – Step 3 of 5
Your finances are in order and you’re pre-qualified for a home loan. You know how much you can afford to spend on a new home. Now comes the time to make lifestyle choices. Many things influence our lifestyle – how and where we want to live. Do you need to live close to your employment? Are you seeking a particular climate? Do you want to live close to your family? Are you seeking an inland home or one closer to the coast? Do you want a large lot or a small lot? Do you want to live close to a grocery store? Do you want to live in a deed-restricted community? Are you looking for a community with lifestyle amenities like pools, gyms, and sports facilities? Do you want a community with sidewalks? Are you looking for privacy? Once you narrow your location choices, seek out a Holiday Builders model home or visit us online at HolidayBuilders.com to begin your new home search.
When you purchase a new construction home, you may have the opportunity to select its elevation (exterior finish) and interior finishes. Award-winning floorplans are designed with form, function, and fashion in mind. Holiday Builders’ catalog of floorplans vary in square footage and are made to fit onto lots in deed-restricted communities and on lots scattered in a city. Our New Home Consultants are your guide to finding the right location and floorplan. Holiday Builders works to provide affordable homes in the markets they serve. That mission steers Holiday’s design & drafting team toward creative affordability solutions that play out in the way of new floorplans. For example, our new Inspire collection of floorplans embraces a smaller footprint concept. Less concrete – less cost. Meanwhile, our Value collection of floorplans includes standard finishes in curated colors while covering high square footage demands. And for those who want to choose their cabinets, flooring, and countertops, we offer our Cornerstone collection. Homebuyers personalize their new home by selecting design options such as quartz, granite, or laminate countertops; patterns & colors of tile flooring; and colors and finishes of cabinetry. The pricing of the Cornerstone home is not complete until the floorplan/elevation, design options, and land costs have been calculated and combined. Land/lot sizes and prices vary around the Holiday Builders’ footprint. Not all plans are available in all areas.
Holiday Builders has an inventory of homes that include move-in ready homes and homes currently under construction in addition to its “to be built” floorplans. For current information on locations, floorplans, and pricing visit HolidayBuilders.com. There’s not a single answer to “How long will it take to build my home?”. Each municipality/county has its own set of rules surrounding permitting and inspections, trades, and vendors. Build times vary by plan and location.
