The definition of “perfect” varies greatly from one family to another. That being said, there are some basic points to consider as you begin your search for a new home community. We’ve put together a helpful checklist to find a new home community that speaks to your needs and feels inviting.
What’s Your Why?
People have a variety of reasons for moving into a new home community. Whatever your reasons for moving – a shorter commute, better school system, abundant shopping and sporting events, or a new job – a new home community offers distinctive advantages.
A fresh, inviting community like Gambrill View offers a home for anyone – no matter the reason for moving.
Which Amenities Do You Want?
Many new home communities include the basics like a community pool, clubhouse, and walking trails. Other communities take it to the next level by prioritizing extensive natural landscaping in common areas. This green space often surrounds tot lots, parks, playgrounds, walking paths, and dog parks.
Consider which amenities are on your wish list. Do you want to stay active on a manicured golf course or in a community pool? Would you rather hike and bike with views of beautiful mountains and native vegetation? Do you need a community gym or locker room?
Brand-new amenities come in all forms. The future value of desirable amenities cannot be overestimated, especially in Gambrill View.
What’s the Developer/Builder’s Reputation?
Not all site developers or individual builders have equal reputations. When looking at a community of new homes, look at the track record and project portfolio of the developer.
Gambrill View’s developer, The Rocky Gorge Companies, have a hand in the development of more than 40 successful residential communities in Maryland and surrounding counties. They’ve built more than 3,000 homes and provided approximately 2,500 lots for other fine builders.
Rocky Gorge is neither a generic nor a national builder. Rather, they are one of the oldest and most stable independent regional builders in the metropolitan Washington area. Rocky Gorge prospers by selecting the finest architects, landscape designers, and engineers. Each craftsman is meticulous. Even the nationally recognized color coordinator is attentive to the details of your new home.
Gambrill View, the newest community, is no different. In a prime location with views of the Gambrill Mountains, we promise to be another outstanding community.
What’s Nearby and Accessible?
Living at home is only one part of your life. You also go to work, have a social life, travel, and more. If you understand that, you understand that community appeal depends partially on what surrounds it.
Are there good schools and comprehensive city services? Is there easy access to shopping, entertainment, and leisure activities? How far away is the nearest airport or highway? Where’s the nearest grocery store? How long does it take to get to work?
Look for quality and lasting value in any new home you consider but also see if the community meets your other needs in life.
Tip: Even a beautiful location and perfect floor plan don’t compensate for an overly long or stressful commute. Visit potential communities during different times of day, both during the week and on weekends.
Do trial runs during heavy traffic and judge necessary drive time to the grocery store, your favorite eatery, or the dentist’s office.
Are the Floor Plans Innovative or Flexible?
An advantage to moving to a community of new construction homes is that you choose your available lot. You select a tailorable floor plan that works for the way you want to live. You have a variety of choices.
In a new home community, homeowners have the option of tailoring a model’s floor plan to meet specific needs and wants. Consider all available options to select from a variety of lots and/or personalize your new home’s floor plan for individual lifestyle needs.
Because the best communities offer a choice of living styles, Gambrill View has a fresh mix of innovative, spacious single-family homes and townhomes. Our floor plans are designed for everyone, from millennial buyers to downsizers.
What’s the Surrounding Area Look Like?
While location isn’t everything, it’s still important. When you embark on a search for a new home community, it’s vital to look at the geography.
Our focus at Gambrill View is on quality construction. We highly consider how to enhance the natural beauty of The Gambrill Mountains and its surrounding natural landscape with every home.
