Planned Communities Offer Beautiful Homes and Resort Style Amenities

Posted: February 5, 2015 at 12:00 pm by: NewHomesGuide

New Homes Guide is the perfect resource to help you find the planned community that’s right for you. Get even more information about these great places to live in our Planned Community supplement, coming in the March/April issue.nhg_PUD_cover_final_no-crops_web

 

One of the best options today for a new home shopper is the many choices available in planned communities in the Mid-Atlantic region. You’ve heard of all-inclusive resorts? Now think all-inclusive new homes.

When builders and developers team up to create an entire neighborhood or even a small town, buyers win. Not only are there more choices in home styles and prices, lots of great amenities are often built into the infrastructure of the community.

These communities can include playing fields, nature trails, swimming pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, golf courses, farmer’s markets, clubhouses, schools and retail centers. Green space, safety and family-friendly living are all incorporated into the planning for these resort-style communities.

In a planned community, the big picture has been taken into account, and elements like lakes and streams, woods, trails and marinas are all interwoven into the design. Builders accentuate the natural topography of the land as well as the buyers’ lifestyles.

Most planned communities feature beautifully decorated models from the area’s finest builders, and that makes a visit fun, inspiring and informative for a new home shopper. There’s usually a visitor’s center, which has complete information on the lifestyle and amenities packages in the community.

Sorting through all the choices, you’ll find that there is a planned community for the way you want to live. Besides the infrastructure of amenities, convenience and open space, planned communities create the character of a true neighborhood – a sense of place that adds so much to the joy of a new home.

Let New Homes Guide help you find the right planned community for you. We’ll be highlighting planned communities all this month in our blog to get ready for the release of our newest special supplement ‘The Planned Community Lifestyle’ in the March/April issue.

Standard Down Payment Goes Down, New Home Ownership Opportunity Rises

Posted: January 27, 2015 at 12:00 pm by: NewHomesGuide

These loans are great news for first-time buyers. Designed to help them the most, the new loans will require significantly less money up front, but will require mortgage insurance and completion of a financial counseling program.
