Thanks to HGTV and the Internet, many new home buyers are more educated and informed than ever before. Most have a good idea of what they want in a home before they even see any models. And, what they want might surprise you. Many of today’s most popular features go beyond cosmetic choices like stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. In fact, many top contenders fall into categories such as convenience, technology, ease-of-maintenance and energy efficiency. Next Generation Signature homes has taken notice of these trends and have incorporated them into our new Signature Series homes!

With today’s hectic lifestyle, it’s no surprise convenience is a high priority for our home buyers. Extra storage options typically rank high on the list, but not everyone wants the same thing. Builders like NGSH who provide expansion options can best meet varying needs, whether it’s a walk-in pantry, a larger mud room, built-ins for pet supplies, a dedicated space for garbage or extra storage in the garage.

Being able to monitor and control appliances, garage doors, furnaces, locks and security systems remotely or by phone is a requirement for many of today’s tech savvy home buyers. Starting the dishwasher once a homeowner gets to work, or remotely controlling a video surveillance system isn’t just about convenience. Home buyers want the peace of mind that comes from being able to monitor and control their homes 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Home builders are responding by incorporating voice activated devices and touch pads, automated lighting and other Smart Home technology in the design phase.

Buyers are looking for energy efficiency and ease-of-maintenance built into their home right from the start. The housing industry has responded with Energy Star appliances and efficient heating and air conditioning systems making homes easier to maintain while also resulting in lower utility bills. New and improved plumbing and electrical fixtures and updated insulation all go a long way in making today’s new construction homes more efficient and easier to maintain.  For the exterior of the home, there are many more options today for low-maintenance siding, energy-saving windows and roofing. As an added bonus, all of these products and features are good for the environment, save on energy costs and make homes more sustainable for the long run!
