What home buyers want in 2019
Earlier this year, the National Association of Home Builders surveyed nearly 4,000 home builders to find out what features new home buyers were placing at the top of their must-have lists. Among the most desired features were walk-in pantries, garage storage, patios and hardwood flooring. Whatever is on the top of your personal list, Saussy Burbank can make it a reality in your new Charleston home.
Not surprisingly, home buyers are keen on homes that include ways to put less stress on the environment and keep utility costs manageable. Features like Energy Star-rated appliances and low-E windows are built-in ways to keep energy usage down, and programmable thermostats keep your home comfortable while allowing to-the-minute monitoring of energy use, and thus your monthly bills. Saussy Burbank is dedicated to building greener, more energy-efficient homes that allow you to keep utility costs lower – and more predictable – for years to come. Read all about it here.
Patios and outdoor space
Among the most requested feature for new homes is outdoor living space. Think: deep front porches for kicking back in your favorite rocker. A sweeping backyard deck or patio ideal for parties and family get togethers. Or mix the best of indoors and out with a screened-in porch, which lets the breeze in and keeps the pests at bay. Whatever your outdoor living style, Saussy Burbank homes take full advantage of the incredible Charleston climate. Check out the indoor outdoor living options for your new home and start living the lowcountry dream.
Bright open designs
According to the NAHB study, 86 percent of homeowners prefer their dining room and kitchen to be completely or partially open, along with white-on-white and grey-on-white cabinetry and countertops and stainless steel appliances. Of course, this isn’t news to the Saussy Burbank design team, who keep their fingers on the pulse of new home style and can work with you to find what trends in kitchen design fit your dream aesthetic. Find out what’s hot in lowcountry home design, and get started designing your new Charleston home.
Location, location, location
Most new home buyers also reported wanting a home in the right kind of environment, where walking and jogging trails are nearby, parks are plentiful, and a great pool is ready for diving in. Luckily, our homes across the Lowcountry meet all those desires and more. Like at Nexton, where not only can you stroll to the pool or the nearby elementary school, you can also walk to shopping and dining destinations at Nexton Square. Carolina Park, too, is rife with walkable destinations. And Kiawah River promises eateries and conveniences all within walking distance.
Whichever of the nearly 200 features new home owners ranked in the NAHB survey are most important to you, Saussy Burbank can deliver it.
