Buying a new home is an exciting milestone in life and with the right team of experts around you, it can be a comfortable and memorable experience too. Before you purchase a new home, there is a lot of planning, saving and research to do. Deciding what neighbourhood, community and home is right for you can take time but it will be all worth it in the end when you get the keys to your brand new beautiful and personalized home!
Benefits to buying a newly-constructed home
Buying a new home before it is built has many benefits. From working with a knowledgeable team, to designing every room the way you want it, to being the first to enjoy brand new community amenities, buying a pre-construction home is about much more than just owning a house.
How to research neighbourhoods and new homes online
In Canada, most people begin their search for a new home online, according to the Canadian Business Journal. Researching neighbourhoods and communities that best suit your lifestyle is a good place to start, and you can also find new homes for sale in the area by checking home builder websites for upcoming communities.
Commonly, home builder websites contain information about where the builder has built homes before, the community site plan, architectural renderings of what the homes will look like when constructed, and floor plans to give you an idea of the interior layout of the homes and much more!
In desirable Richmond Hill, OakRidge Meadows is a new community by Aspen Ridge Homes, CountryWide Homes, Regal Crest Homes and Royal Pine Homes coming soon in 2021. The community website created by these four renowned builders, contains easy-to-find information about the surrounding area and the homes, plus you can even register to receive emails with more information as it becomes available.
New homes have open, modern living spaces
One of the biggest benefits to buying a pre-construction home is working with the home builder to find the right model, size and style home for you and your family. Depending on the type of home you’re looking for, such as townhome or single-detached home, there may also be design and elevation variations you can choose from.
There is also a huge benefit to the open, modern living spaces in today’s home design, plus today’s new homes are held to a higher standard of energy efficiency than ever before. Homes with natural light, elegant and spacious kitchens, expansive and connective family and dining rooms make living there comfortable and enjoyable. Large bedrooms and bathrooms with brand new luxurious fixtures are also a benefit to buying a new home, and in a floor plan with more bedrooms than you need, there is flexibility to turn one into your ideal home office.
Design your new home the way you want
Another benefit to purchasing a home before it is built is having your own personal design team to customize it just the way you like it! You work with talented designers who will guide you through all of the choice in features and finishes in your new home.
Imagine a blank canvas! You get to choose the paint colours, select from a variety of flooring, cabinetry, kitchen and bathroom faucets and hardware and much, much more!
When your new home is finished, it will be functional and stylish with all of the features and finishes you selected to best suit your family’s lifestyle and design preferences.
Be the first to enjoy new community amenities
When you move in, sometimes your new community will still be under construction but that’s exciting because you will be among the first to use all of the amenities when they are ready! Any new infrastructure like roads and sewers (we know, not that interesting, but they will be there for you for many, many years!) will be constructed before foundations are poured and new homes are framed.
As the community becomes complete, you and your family will be able to start enjoying amenities such as parks, playgrounds, trails and pathways. At Oakridge Meadows, residents will be steps to the Oak Ridges Moraine, a 400-acre natural paradise right in your backyard ready to explore. Plus, the surrounding area is rich in parks and activities to experience, with Lake Wilcox Park, St. George Conservation Area, golf courses and forested trails to hike and cycle just minutes away.
