If you’re planning on building a new home in 2022, below are 5 key factors you need to keep in mind before signing on for construction. Read on to learn more!


1. Build Within Your Budget

As with any major life decision and investment, your budget will play a significant role in helping to design your future home, as well as determining your location. Whether you’re scaling up to accommodate your expanding family, hoping to downsize your empty nest, you’ll want to make sure your budget takes all aspects of your current and future finances into consideration, as well as a mortgage that leaves you wiggle room. Those who qualify may want to look into the first-time home buyer’s incentive, which can help you reduce mortgage payments without adding to your financial burdens.

At Abbey Platinum Master Built, we’re pleased to offer a wide variety of homes with prices spanning multiple entry points ranging from affordable starter homes to luxury estate builds and more. No matter your budget, we’re here to help you find the perfect place to call home!

2. Choose the Right Builder

When it comes to building your dream home, you should never have to settle where your contractor is concerned. At Abbey Platinum Master Built, we believe in putting quality first and are proud to be a multiple-time recipient of Builder of the Year, as well as other industry awards for building and customer service. We know that every family is unique, and we’re proud to work alongside you to design a space that’s perfect for your needs today, tomorrow, and for the many years to come!

3. Location

There’s no shortage of vibrant communities to call home in Central Alberta, from a bustling city like Red Deer to smaller bedroom communities like Blackfalds or Penhold. Whether you want to be right in the middle of all the action or would prefer a quieter, more remote location, Abbey Platinum Master Built is here to help you find the right place to build on, with lots featured in many of the most popular neighbourhoods across the region!

4. Sustainability

Green building and sustainability have become a huge point of consideration in the home construction industry, with the majority of today’s new builds being constructed with a reduced footprint in mind. When it comes to guaranteeing your home is as sustainable and efficient as possible, you’ll not only want to partner with a builder that knows how to build with the environment in mind, but to choose a team that knows how to design an airtight building envelope.

Your building envelope is what keeps the outside elements where they belong, and what protects your home from drafts, moisture damage, and other related issues. In order for a modern home to be considered truly efficient and sustainable, your builders need to create a superior envelope that keeps your house as protected as possible. Better insulation, triple-paned windows, and other core features go a long way to helping your house stay “airtight” for as long as possible, lowering your energy bill and keeping everyone cozy all year round!

5. Build For the Future

Every home has a unique purpose in our lives, and ensuring your new build is perfectly crafted for your goals is key! Whether you’re hoping to sell in a few years or are creating your forever home that you plan to retire and age-in-place in, working with a custom builder like Abbey Platinum Master Built gives you the opportunity to build around your life today and make sure you’re future-ready.
