The decision to build a new home is laden with feelings of excitement and possibility. After all, you are creating a one-of-a-kind space that will perfectly suit the needs of you and your family for years to come. Every detail that goes into your home - from the cabinet selections to the flooring - is brand new and selected by you.
That decision comes with lots of choices - the most important of which iswhereto build. Fortunately, you have great options - particularly if you are considering building a new home in North Georgia, Western North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee.
The natural beauty of these areas is stunning, and if you are considering purchasing your own land, your views may just be your most valuable amenity. These areas also offer a plethora of new home communities that are in various stages of development.
Let’s take a look at the differences between building on your lot (OYL) or in a new home community so that you have all the information you need to make the best decision for you.
You Own the Land
Whether your land has been passed down from family, or you purchased it because of its perfect location, we understand how much it means to you. With OYL building, you choose the site, and then we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll do an initial evaluation, survey, and sitework to make sure we build a home perfectly suited to your property.
Longer Build-to-Move-In Timeline
Mom always said that good things come to those who wait. In this case, you get a dream home in your ideal location, and we think that’s worth just a few more weeks of waiting. Depending on the condition of your land, site development work will need to be completed before construction can begin. We’ll make sure your land is cleared, graded, and prepared, and secure all local building permits and licenses to do so.
Each of our floor plans has been architecturally drafted and structurally engineered with low maintenance and high efficiency in mind. But we know that the orientation of your land and personal preferences may call for adjustments. As long as they don't affect any structural walls, we're happy to make modifications like adding porch extensions and personalizing design features!
Choose Your Surroundings
Neighbors or no neighbors? Riverside or wooded? The possibilities are endless when you choose the land you’re building on. One thing is for sure - you’ll wake up each morning loving where you live, both indoors and out.
Our OYL areas include some of the most beautiful areas of North Georgia, Western North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.Take a lookat the specific counties where we build.
The Builder Owns the Land
We’ll do the surveying and sitework is already done before your home construction starts.
Quicker Move-In Timeline
When a builder has move-in ready homes, that typically means there’s no wait from the time of closing to move-in. However, in the current market of high demand, there just aren’t as many move-in ready homes available. In most cases, we’ll still need to build your home from the ground up, but because the sitework is done, construction may begin sooner.
Some new home communities that we have built in offer amenities such as a clubhouse, pool, playground, or are gated communities.
Close to Neighbors
Neighbors are just steps away.
Our new home communities are often located close to conveniences such as fitness centers, grocery stores, and restaurants.
Whether you choose to build on your lot or in a community comes down to personal preference and how you envision life in your new home. If you decide that you’d like to live on land that you’ve personally selected or in a community, Brown Haven Homes would be honored to be your building partner.
