Living in the Mid-Atlantic region, you often find that the construction of new homes are dominated by large, national, publicly traded builders. Naturally, these builders have divisions in several major metro areas across the nation, they consolidate buying power, have a stable of the same plans coast to coast and use building practices that best serve their shareholders. So while this model is critical to the economy, it really makes us appreciate that small, local builder who has become an endangered species. These hidden gems are the perfect match for that first or second time move-up buyer who wants personal flair without breaking the bank. For more than 30 years, Forty West has been doing just that!
Some call it custom, some call it semi-production but at Forty West we call it GETTING PERSONAL. That means offering our buyers an array of floor plans we know are structurally sound and designed for today’s living, and then allowing our customers to personalize these floor plans to meet their desires. This can mean moderate changes like converting a first floor study to private in-laws quarters, wholesale changes like closing in a two-story family room and elevating the master bedroom above it, or it can mean cosmetic personalization like visiting a granite warehouse to pick that perfect slab for your kitchen.
Buying your first home is no doubt an unforgettable experience. . . . but in more ways than one. The progressions from that “happy homeowner” stage to the “if we had known” stage to the “in our next house we will” stage are common. So as you search for your next home, don’t forget about the “all the things you wished for in your next house stage” and find a builder who can make your wishes come true. After all, buying a home is a personal decision so make it personal!
