The new year offers the ideal opportunity for change. Whether it’s a new climate, new job, or new school district you’re after, you also might want to consider one crucial new element—a home’s construction.
New homes offer numerous benefits for homeowners—from the latest and greatest in green building techniques to modern amenities and wide-open floor plans. Buyers who don’t relish the idea of a renovation project or a long list of to-do’s are also much better off with a brand-new home.
In the spirit of change and new beginnings for 2019, we’ve found nine new homes ready for their first owners to take the keys. Back up the moving van and have a look.
