The growing appeal of buying new

When it comes to big decisions like purchasing a home, chances are the timing is never going to feel 100% perfect…except perhaps now. After a year of significant time spent at home, you know what you want from your living spaces, better than ever. With golden interest rates still near record lows and the housing market poised to steadily increase, this could be the time to make your vision your reality. Best of all, you get to forego exhaustive searching and bidding wars by buying new, with Brookfield Residential.

Dedicated to creating the best places to call home, Brookfield Residential exemplifies the benefits of new construction homes. This includes brand-new amenities such as resort-style pools, premium clubhouses, tranquil parks, vibrant playgrounds, fitness centers and more. Perhaps most importantly however, new construction further invites buyers to go beyond finding a home that feels just right, in favor of creating the just-right fit, top to bottom.

Fresh, clean living, styled-to-taste
With stellar floor plans to choose from, buying new offers the latest in contemporary design. Without the burden of inheriting someone else’s personality, there’s no need to budget for time-consuming renovations. With leading North American home builder Brookfield Residential, you can choose the layout, and the finishes, that match your tastes, lifestyle, and budget. As the first to settle in, you’ll be stepping across the cleanest threshold into your new home. That true sparkle of first ownership is a feeling hard to beat.

Smart investment: top technology and energy-efficiency
Of course, as significant as aesthetics are, the value of new builds goes much deeper. Brookfield Residential is dedicated to putting core values into practice, says Community Sales Manager at The Village at Castle Pines Bill Gleeson. This includes setting the highest standards when it comes to energy efficiency and cutting edge technology.

All Brookfield Residential homes are thoughtfully designed to be highly energy efficient. New construction homes come with multi-pane windows, tankless water heaters, HVAC systems, and more – all working in concert to keep utility costs low and comfort high.

Community connections
What best elevates a house to home, of course, is the people—both the ones who dwell within, and the neighborliness of those without. Brookfield Residential communities stand out for the harmonious, beautiful designs in highly coveted locations. They are also carefully laid out with the intent to cultivate peaceful, friendly community. “Brookfield offers a lifestyle,” Gleeson says. “You’ve got stellar surroundings, inviting communities, top-notch amenities, and more.”

With a brand new home community, fresh starts are for everyone. This means shared enthusiasm for new bonds, and openness to making connections. Facing similar newness, neighborliness is bound to spring and flourish.
