When looking for a new home, there are a number of important choices to make from the outset. The first is whether you want a home that has already been lived in or a new home that has recently been built. 

The good news is that today’s modern homes draw on a wide range of influences and are becoming increasingly popular for both first time and experienced buyers. New home sites, such as those at the Miraval site in Mesa Verde, create not just stunning properties but wonderful communities, brilliant places for families to set up home and prosper. 

Designers and architects are able to bring a wide pantheon of different styles to modern homes today. Not only can they include all the latest energy saving and sustainable technology your property needs, they design with aesthetics in mind. That means you get a great looking modern home that feels right from the moment you step over the threshold.  

Many properties go for large glass walls that can open onto stunning vistas or enclosed gardens depending on the location. Surrounding garden walls are also part of the design for many a modern home and provide the architects with plenty of opportunity to be creative. 

It’s the interior where the midcentury design of today’s modern homes make all the difference. Architects and builders create spaces that not only stand out but which each have their own individual character within the community. 

In places like the Miraval community in Mesa Verde, you’ll find plenty of modern properties designed to give you space and comfort. Built with southern coastal California in mind, each property has it’s own contemporary feel and a sense of timeless comfort. You can contact us today to find out more.  

Don’t Make These Mistakes When Buying a New Construction Home

Buying a modern house is a big investment and you want to get it right first time. Not only would you like to live in a great community but you also need a new construction home that fits your requirements.  

It’s easy to get caught up with unimportant things when your home is developing right before your eyes. The problem is that you must stay focused and make sure all the relevant boxes are ticked. That includes ensuring you get the right advice and have your new home inspected. 

Do You Need an Estate Agent?

Buying a new construction home makes many people think an estate agent isn’t needed. They depend more on the sales agent without considering their options. A realtor will work for you, not necessarily for their commission, which is why you should always be using one from the get go. 

Carrying Out Research

Any modern house development can look highly attractive from the outside. That shouldn’t prevent you from doing your homework on the builders though – check if any court cases are pending and look at licenses, bonds and sub-contractors to be on the safe side. 

Find Out What You’re Really Buying

Many new construction home companies will add on extras for a premium price – in other words you have to pay if you want certain amenities. Before you sign any contract, you should check what’s included in the price and what isn’t. List everything in detail and do a thorough check. In other words, assume nothing. 

Have an Inspection

Just because it’s a modern house, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have an inspection. In fact, precisely because it’s a new build you will want to make sure that everything works perfectly. 

Read the Fine Print

Any contract can stretch into many pages and the temptation is to glance over it and sign. Always make sure you read those terms and conditions as closely as possible – any contract is there to protect the builder more than the buyer and you don’t want to put yourself at a disadvantage from day one.
