Saussy Burbank: Exceeding the wishlists of the first-time homebuyer in Charleston

Looking to purchase your first home? Let us be the first to officially congratulate you on making this major life decision. No doubt you’ve been thinking of this moment—and your dream house—for some time now; the kitchen with ample counter space for entertaining, a living room boasting natural light and storage solutions for all of life’s “little things” you’ve picked up along the way; and a backyard practically begging for summer BBQs.

Yes, you know exactly what you’re looking for—and you’re not alone. According to, the wishlist of current first-time buyers is more extensive today than it has been in previous decades. In fact, wishlists extend to both the community, as well as the house itself.

With a lengthy list of ironclad prerequisites, it might seem daunting for some to begin the house hunting process—unless you’re looking to build with Saussy Burbank, who continues to meet and surpass the wishlist of first-time buyers everywhere, that is.

Top Wishlist Items For First-Home Purchasers


At Saussy Burbank we understand that everyone has a budget to stick to. And it makes sense – both for long-term financial success and to ensure you can qualify for funding in the first place. With affordable homes starting in the low $200s, our new Charleston homes give you value that far surpasses the price point every time.

Low Crime Rates

Nothing’s more important than the safety of possessions, property, and most importantly, your family. While there are simple measures to take to ensure safety in the home, it starts with choosing a neighborhood and surrounding area with a low crime rate and programs in place that foster community.

Move-In Ready

You can’t get more move-in ready than with a newly constructed house with all the bells and whistles. New Saussy Burbank homeowners enjoy squeaky clean floors, top of the line appliances and finishes, and of course, the luxury of being able to move in without breaking a sweat—or the reno budget—right out the gate. If you need to move fast – perhaps because of a relocation to the area? – we have quick move-in homes in all of our communities. So you can be kicking back on your new screened-in porch within 30 days.

Efficient HVAC Systems

One of the biggest perks of a new construction home is knowing that the systems inside, specifically the HVAC system, are brand new, up to code, and firing on all cylinders. They’re expensive purchases when it comes time to replace, so it brings peace of mind to buyers to know that the average lifespan of a new HVAC is upwards of 15 years.

Proximity and Accessibility

Charleston has been topping charts and stacking up accolades for more than a decade, many relating to the city’s desirability as a place to live, work, and play. Our communities of Carolina Park  and Kiawah River offer easy access to all the conveniences and amenities that are drawing in dozens of new Charlestonians by the day.

Quickly proving to be one of the most sought-often locations in the Charleston area, Summerville, home to our Nexton and Summers Corner communities, offers close proximity and accessibility to all of the major shopping, entertainment and business districts you want and need. Additionally, getting to downtown Charleston, to the beaches, or off to the mountains is as easy as jumping on one of the many nearby interstates or back roads—destination: anywhere.

Attention to Details
From stunning countertops and cabinets throughout the kitchen and bathrooms to hardwood floors, open floor plans and ample natural sunlight, Saussy Burbank builds homes built with attention to detail, design, and favorable trends.

Moderate temps. A breeze from the Atlantic Ocean. Few snow shovels to be seen. Need we say more?

While it may be difficult to check every must-have item off of your wishlist for your very first home, we’re proud to build beautiful and functional homes in communities throughout Charleston that make buying your first home—or your third—a dream come true. For more information on our available communities and plans, please reach out. We’d love to build the perfect Charleston home for your family.
