New Home Shopping Tips

????????????????????????????????????????If you are looking for more than a little box on a hilltop, we’ve got some shopping tips for you. Use these tips to compare homes for sale in Chesterfield VA. You’ll know what you’re getting and get what you want!

Know what you want. Start by thinking about all the things you wish you had in your current home. Then, make a list of everything your hoping for in your new home. Be sure to highlight 3-5 items on the list that are absolute must haves. When you visit Main Street Homes or call for an appointment share your list with us! We will help you discover the neighborhood and floor plan that best suits your family’s needs.

Look in the Details. When you walk through a new home for the first time, it’s easy to be distracted by the bright open spaces and shiny new floors. Don’t let that keep you from the details! Look for quality features like real wood trim for windows and baseboards or brand names you trust like Delta Leland faucets. Ask about benefits you can’t see such as continuous steel reinforced footings for stronger foundations and interior drainage to help prevent moisture. These are included features with Main Street Homes that you may not find with other builders.

Consider the Savings. Are there energy savings built into the home? Items like insulated garage doors and Ply Gem Low E2 windows with Argon add efficiency to new homes. The American Standard 14 SEER heat pump with programmable thermostat and Energy Star Whirlpool appliances included in our homes for sale in Chesterfield VA will help lower your carbon footprint and expenses.

Take pictures and make notes. Our well-appointed model homes will give you lots of ideas. But the features and benefits may start running together. Take note of the specific things about each home that sets it apart in your mind. Open doors and drawers, feel the surfaces, turn on the water, sit down in front of the fireplace and imagine living here! Snap a photo of the features you definitely want to include when you choose your own options in our 3,700 square foot Design Studio!

At Main Street Homes we invite you to ask questions and inspect our homes inside and out. We think you’ll find the difference that turns our home shoppers into homeowners time and time again!
