Read on to learn more! Why Build New? When it comes to finding your next home, it can be difficult to choose between purchasing an existing model (such as our quick possession homes) and building from scratch. There are definitely benefits to both, with the most obvious perk to existing homes making it easier to move in fast if you need to. With that being said, building new is the best way to get exactly what you want. No more worrying about having enough space or the features you really want in a home; with a new build, you get your dream home right from day one…all that’s left to do is enjoy! Before you build, you’ll want to consider the following: Budget Abbey Platinum Master Built is pleased to offer a wide range of home styles spanning multiple price points to ensure that every family can find their perfect fit! When getting ready to buy a home (new or existing), your top priority should be sitting down to figure out what your budget is, as well as what your comfort level is with mortgage rates, etc. Even though thinking about finances is probably the least fun aspect of getting ready for a new house, it’s also one of the most important details to have locked down. Take some time to discuss, as a family, with your financial advisor, and determine what you qualify for to make sure you’re ready to go when the time is right! Location It’s not just the house that makes a home; it’s loving where you live. Finding the right community is essential to feeling like you’re in the right place. Abbey Platinum is thrilled to have our homes in many popular neighbourhoods like Evergreen and Laredo (Red Deer), Panorama Estates and Cottonwood Meadows (Blackfalds), Elizabeth Park and MacKenzie Ranch (Lacombe), Hawkridge Estates and Oxford Landing (Penhold), and Ryder’s Ridge and Crestview in Sylvan Lake. Your Needs Now and in the Future Buying a home isn’t just about checking boxes today. The right space will be able to make you feel just as comfortable and happy down the road. Before you build, consider what you really want in a home and ask yourself:

  • How long do we intend to live here? Are we ageing in place or planning to sell?
  • Are you planning to expand your family in the future?
  • Do you plan on working from home, or would you like the flexibility to do so?
  • Do you want to include accessibility features to make your home safer and widen your market of potential buyers if you sell, etc.?
Relish the Small Details Custom homes are made to be just that: custom! Don’t be afraid to ask about the special features you’ve always wanted and to make sure your builders use your preferred material etc. From elaborate fireplaces to cozy nooks, outdoor entertaining areas and more, we have you covered!
