What Buyers are Looking For in a Newly Built Home

It has become clear in recent years that the features home buyers are seeking in a newly built home have significantly changed.  This may be from a significant shift in construction costs, primarily the soaring prices of lumber, the recent pandemic, and other factors.    So how can construction companies build in a way that will appease newly built home buyers?

Smart Features

As technology grows, integrating itself into more and more of our lives, new home buyers are looking for smart features to be incorporated into the home.  Smart showers, smart heating systems and smart home security are just a few of the ways technology has seeped into interior home features.  Buyers want the convenience of controlling these systems from their phones along with greater peace of mind.  Shrock Premier

is an experienced builder of smart technology features. 


Real estate agents are finding that new home buyers are putting location at or near the top of their list of priorities in what they are looking for in a new home.  These buyers are seeking neighborhoods where they can be connected with a community.  Shrock Premier develops beautiful neighborhoods such as Urban Meadows. 

Space for Work

There are still a large number of people who are working from home either full time or several days a week.  This creates a need for office space in the home away from the main living area.  Builders are going away from the open floor plan to closed and separate rooms where homes can double as family space and work space. 

Energy Efficient

Newly built home buyers are also seeking homes that are inexpensive to maintain.  There is a growing trend in energy efficiency in all appliances and lighting systems. The decreased size of the structure with more insulation also provides buyers with peace of mind that maintaining the home will be less expensive.  Many builders are marketing their homes with a Home Energy Score of greater than 6 for their ideal buyer.

At Shrock Premier we pride ourselves in knowing what buyers are looking for in a newly built home.  We strive to please our customers with state of the art technology, custom features, energy efficiency, and beauty in the homes we build.  Visit our website or give us a call today to see what we can build for you!
