Doesn’t it sometimes feel like you have to spend your entire weekend cleaning your home? And after spending all of that time, it starts to look messy again by Tuesday or Wednesday. How do others seem to keep everything looking great all the time?
It's an age-old question in the world of home buying: do I build a new home or purchase a resale home (sometimes called a pre-owned home)? For many, building new can feel daunting. Not quite certain of the building process, or perhaps under the impression it will cost substantially more to build new, many stick with what they're comfortable with and purchase a resale house.

When is the last time you took a hard look at the layout of your current house? Are you using the dining area as your home office, with the kids' homework mixed in with your important papers? Maybe science projects are taking up half of your kitchen countertop?

Every one of us homeowners has had those moments — utter frustration with the state of our current home.
It's cleaning day and you don't even know where to begin wading through the piles of clutter all over the house. Trying to choose an outfit for work in a closet whose racks are bowing under the weight of all the double-and-triple-loaded hangers. A garage so full of storage items you have to park your vehicle outside.
These are real-life signs you're outgrowing your home, and it might be time to trade in your old house for a new one better suited to your needs.
Choosing the best floor plan for your family, one that fits your needs and wants, and the style you prefer is a lot of work, but also very exciting. You're imagining your life in a new home, and as you envision your family in the walls of that floor plan, you know you're making the right choice.
Part of that choice, however, is ensuring your ideal new home both fits and is located on the right lot as well.
Sometimes, when you visit a builder’s website, you’ll see an advertisement for their current promotion.
