One aspect of choosing where you want to live is how you feel living there. It can be a challenge to capture the feeling of a community if you don’t live there, but Kelli Little, VP of Marketing at Fieldstone Homes, gave us some key things to look at which will help you feel and understand what it will be like.
The aesthetic of your home is obviously a huge factor, but also the whole neighborhood. You want to feel you belong. The architecture sets the tone and feel of the community. Then you add the materials and that makes the community pop.
You want to make the home yours. You can still choose the quality products and color pallet (warmth, james hardy planks, organic (wood, stone, etc.)) and even more customizations. The white farm is still popular look.
Do you want to have fun right where you live? These huge perks can make all the difference. Do you want to swim and have a clubhouse for parties? Would you like to be outdoors on trails, pickleball courts, at a parks or even a stake park? The activities right in your community is the big cherry on top.
Location will always be the the biggest factor in determined where you want to lay down your roots. Are you wanting to close to the best schools, close to work, or to freeway access? It can be a great idea to live a little further out from work to have your most desired location.
