Five benefits of being first to a community
March 1, 2019
Searching for a new place to live can be exciting and stressful all at the same time. With so many great communities to pick from, it can be hard to settle on a final decision. Homebuyers usually look to settle in well-known communities with fantastic reputations. However, do you know that moving into a newly developing community is equally as exciting and provides you with even more freedom than an already developed neighborhood? For buyers currently on the hunt for a new place to settle down, we’ve come up with six unquestionable advantages of being the first residents to move into a brand new community.
1. The lot of your choice
Most homebuyers have found themselves in a situation where they love their home but aren’t the biggest fan of the location. Well, when you move into a new community, you get the best of both worlds – a home you love at the location of your choice. When you’re one of the first residents to move into a developing community, you get the pick of the lot! If you want a home built on across the park, you can have it. Or, maybe you’d rather a large lot to allow for a sizeable backyard for the kids to play in? You can have that as well. Being first to a community means you can live anywhere in the neighborhood that you’d like.
2. A larger selection of home models
Since certain lots are more suitable for certain home types, it only makes sense that getting the lot of your choice means getting the home of your choice. This means you get to choose a home that perfectly suits your family’s lifestyle. So, if you’re a busy growing family looking to enjoy the convenience of a front-attached garage home, you can easily build it due to the large selection of lots.
3. Pioneer pricing
When a new community is ready to sell its first phase of homes, builders and developers may offer lower prices to entice buyers. It’s not uncommon for builders to offer home buyers some fantastic deals like free or discounted upgrades to make the choice to move a little bit easier. The lots may also be less expensive in the first phases which can keep the home prices overall lower than in future phases.
4. Improved property value
Not only do you get favourable pricing and mouth-watering deals when you move into a developing community, you also get to see the value of your investment skyrocket. New communities are usually getting amenities added to them. During your time there, you may see the addition of a community plaza, office buildings, recreational centres, schools and more! So, if you ever decide to sell your home, you’ll find that you can list it on the resale market for much more than its initial purchase price.
Moving to a new community, one that is being developed means everyone around you is in the same boat! All the emotions you felt during your move, your neighbours likely felt that too. It is a great way to forge a sense of community by meeting your new neighbours. You could make life-long friends through common experiences.
Settling down in a new community is exciting. Not only do you get the location and home of your dreams, you also get to watch the neighborhood develop to meet world-class standards. So, what are you waiting for? Be one of the first to find your dream home in Rivercrest!
