Temple TX Home Builders Tackle 5 Mut Have Features for 2016

Just like the fashion industry must respond to the design demands of consumers, home builders in Temple TX are responding to home buyers' changing tastes in the features they want in a new home.  

After years of experience and watching the market change, we are finding that these features are on the top of the list for today's new home buyers:


Beautiful Bathrooms

We live in a high stress society today and new home buyers are looking for ways to relax and get away from that stress in their new homes.   The luxury style bath is a must have for helping them relax and feel pampered at home.  Deep soaking tubs and  separate showers with rainhead fixtures are a welcome retreat at the end of a tense day.    Bathrooms should have finishes that need only a quick wipe down to stay sparkling and fresh, such as glass, ceramic tile, granite and marble.

Big Kitchens With Plenty of Storage

Today's new home buyers are looking for impressive kitchens that deliver plenty of storage, prep and serving space.   While some want the space for preparing meals, others want the space for entertaining family and friends.  Name brand appliances are important to buyers, as are appliances in a stainless steel finish.  Granite  or quartz countertops are at the top of their list, too.  The kitchen should be designed to flow with the rest of the living areas, so no one is cut off and left out of the fun!


Open Floorplans

As our lifestyles become more and more casual, the need for compartmentalized rooms has disapeared.   New home buyers are looking for that open floorplan that let's everyone interact no matter if they are watching TV or gaming, sitting in the dining area, or preparing a meal.  Everyone can circulate from area to area and keep the party going!  This floorplan below even let's the cook keep an eye on all the backyard activities, too.


Home Office Space

Today's amazing technology lets more and more of us leave the cubicle behind and work from home.  New homes with a dedicated office space is a must have feature that todays buyers look for, whether they work from home, need space to be creative, or just need a spot to pay the bills!

Quality Construction

Builders are always saying they provide "quality construction".   Take your time and see for yourself if it truly is quality.    Today's buyers are spending time looking at numerous builders before making a decision to buy.  They are walking jobsites and comparing building methods, materials,  framing tolerances, insulation.  They are looking for straight walls and interior finishes installed with total attention to detail.  They are asking questions and making sure that they feel confident that the builder they choose is the one that will meet their expectations for quality.  They know that quality construction means fewer problems in the future.

Good morning, Jerry Wright Homes  ...everyone loves a new home and you've listed the most important areas of a home for potential buyers to focus on.... nice photos....new construction was my niche when I was active and I've listed and sold out 40 subdivisions in my area.... it was a "great ride".... I also had my Massachusetts builders license but never built...it was for knowledge of the product.
