Features to Look for in a Home as a First Time Home Buyer

You’re on the hunt for a new home and it’s important to know what features are most important when it comes to resale value down the road.  At McAdams Homes, we know what new homeowners are looking for and we make sure that all of our homes come with those key features.

At the top of the list is a laundry space.  Who doesn’t appreciate the convenience of being able to hide that pile of clean clothes that needs folding from your last minute visitors?!  Not only that, but having a space for ironing and storage is a huge bonus!  And, according to the National Association of Home Builders’, 91% of home buyers want a laundry room or space. 

At times like these when we are spending more time at home and in our own backyards, it is more important than ever to have an outdoor living space that you and your family can enjoy.  That is why all of our homes offer a patio or screened in porch option.  With so many incredible decorating ideas and outdoor features now available, you can easily and affordably make your backyard unique and a place you and your guests to enjoy all while increasing your home’s value at the same time.  

The weather out on the patio is hot so come on in and settle under the ceiling fan!  85% of homebuyers desire ceiling fans in the home but if that isn’t enough motivation to have a few installed, they can also help lower cooling costs.  Ceiling fans create a wind-chill effect that helps cool the people sitting in the room. Homeowners should be able to raise the thermostat level by four degrees without a reduction in comfort while the fan is in use, according to Energy.gov.  That’s a win-win in our opinion!

 Among the top 5 most desired features (and a must on our list), is the walk in closet.  This feature is so important to us and our clients that we don’t limit walk in closets to just the master bedrooms in our plans. We aim to please and as far as we are concerned, it’s walk in closets for everyone! 

Our homes have so many amazing features that it is hard to narrow down to just a few of our favorite features but, you don’t even have to take our word for it.  Here is a testimonial from another of our satisfied customers:

“McAdams Homes and the Landing at Lewis Creek is everything we were looking for. As first time home buyers we were already nervous and didn’t plan on looking into a new build, but when we saw everything McAdams had to offer there was no question about it. Everyone involved was beyond helpful from start to finish, the location is perfect, and the homes are just absolutely beautiful. Our family is beyond happy here at the Landing at Lewis Creek.” — Sarah G.
