3 Things to Look for in a New Home

Whether it’s your first home or you’re ready for a change in residence, purchasing a new home is an exciting life milestone, but the process can seem overwhelming. As you tour Central Texas homes for sale, you’ll find a seemingly endless array of options. 

While you may have some particulars in mind, such as a certain number of bedrooms or an ideal kitchen size, many factors remain undetermined. Don’t forget to keep the big picture in mind – the neighborhood is often as important as the house itself. So what should you look for in a new home? 

A Sense of Community

To make a house your true "home," sometimes it takes a village. If you want a home base where you greet your neighbors in the morning and enjoy the possibility of living close to life-long friends, you’ll want a neighborhood with a strong community vibe.

 A master-planned community may be the perfect option. Brookfield Residential builds new homes in some of the best master-planned communities in Central Texas including Belterra, Terra Colinas, Caliterra, Retreat at Dripping Springs, Water Oak, Rough Hollow, Bryson and Santa Rita Ranch.

Exceptional Homebuilders

Buying a home is not a decision that should be made in a hurry. Instead, when searching through listings, take your time. Do your research. 

Brookfield Residential has 60 years of experience in building homes and developing communities throughout North America, and our recent addition of Grand Haven Homes brings 10 years of homebuilding expertise in Central Texas. This powerful combination helps us deliver an outstanding product to our customers. 

Our communities offer the best locations in the Austin-area: Hill Country and lake views, exceptional school districts, close proximity to grocery stores, shopping centers and entertainment, outdoor hike and bike trails. Whatever you may need – one of our many communities offers it. We want our customers to feel empowered to live life in their dream home.

Good Schools

 A great school district is always an important consideration for families with kids. While property values tend to be higher, there’s typically a smaller amount of crime. Brookfield Residential communities feed into a number of exceptional Central Texas school districts including Leander ISD, Dripping Springs ISD, Lake Travis ISD, Liberty Hill ISD, Georgetown ISD and Round Rock ISD.
