New vs. Resale: The Best Bet for Your Next Home.

The decision between buying new or buying resale is more than just the price tag of the home. Your next home should be unique, high-quality, money-saving and ready when you want it.

Jan21

These are just a few of the reasons why buying new gives you exactly what you’re looking for:

Personalization
If you choose a resale home, what you see is what you get. But when you build a new home, you’ll have input in the floorplan, style and design elements of your home. From the flooring and cabinets to the fixtures and paint colors, it’s going to be your home, so you should have a choice.

Peace of Mind
Buying a resale means you have to trust the seller that there is nothing wrong with the home. But when you buy new, you can be certain that your home is built with new, high-quality materials. You know you won’t be moving into a home where you’ll have to replace the carpet or appliances right away. Plus, every new Brookfield home comes with a new home warranty — that’s a guarantee that you can count on.

Modern and Money-Saving Features
When you buy new, you don’t have to wonder whether or not your home will be energy efficient. New homes are designed to be cleaner, greener and more efficient than ever. Brookfield Residential offers a wide range of high-efficiency features — many of which come standard — that provide exceptional savings and comfort to help you get the most out of your new home investment.

Ready When You Are
The length of construction time is sometimes an obstacle for homebuyers who want to buy new but can’t wait several months while their home is built. Fortunately, you can still get a fantastic brand new home without the wait. Move-In-Now Homes are available in a wide variety of styles and communities, and they come with all the designs, features and upgrades you’re looking for and are ready for your family now.

When you’re in the market for your next home, you’ll have plenty of decisions to make. But when it’s time to choose between buying new or buying resale, you’ll be ready to make the smart move.

Energy-Saving Tips for Winter

Don’t Let Cold Weather Burn Up Your Wallet This Winter

While many Brookfield homes come standard with energy-efficient features, such as barrier foam sealant, programmable thermostats and mastic-sealed ductwork, you can still follow some simple steps to save you money during times of peak energy consumption.

29Dec

Here are just a few things you can do to save yourself some green this winter:

Take advantage of heat from the sun — When it comes to warming your home, the sun is your biggest ally. Simply open your curtains during the day to allow sunlight to enter and naturally heat your home. Close them at night to reduce the cooling effect from cold windows.

Set your thermostat, save money — When you’re at home and awake, set your thermostat to as low as is comfortable. When you’re asleep or out of your home, turn the thermostat down 10 to 15 degrees. Doing so can save you up to 10% a year on your heating bills. Programmable thermostats, standard in every new Brookfield home, make it even easier to set the temperature for times when you won’t be home.

Maintain your heating system — Keeping your furnace running smoothly is a key way to save money. And it can be as simple as replacing your furnace filter once a month (or as needed). If necessary, schedule service for your furnace to ensure that your heating system is running as efficiently as possible.

For even more tips and tricks for saving energy this winter, check out the U.S. Department of Energy’s official energy-saving guide or see this do-it-yourself list from the experts of The Family Handyman Magazine.

Working Together to Build a Brighter Future in Northern Virginia

Brookfield Residential Partners with HomeAid Northern Virginia to Renovate Women’s Shelter

17Dec

With nearly 13% of Virginia’s 40,000 homeless persons residing in Northern Virginia, the need for usable shelter properties is as dire as always (source: HomeAid). But thanks to the work of HomeAid and members of the homebuilding industry, including Brookfield Residential employees and our network of our homebuilding partners, the needs of the homeless in our area can now be better met as a result of a newly renovated women’s shelter in Alexandria, VA.

Since 2001, HomeAid Northern Virginia has completed 86 projects, valued at more than $12 million dollars in total, to help shelter organizations with the costly, time-consuming renovations and construction of facilities.

When HomeAid charged the homebuilding industry with helping in renovating the Alexandria Women Shelter, we volunteered to lead the project and began utilizing our contacts necessary to facilitate the work.

By the time work was completed, the project had spanned seven weeks and had made use of seven vendors, including plumbers, electricians and general contractors. Our trade partners were able to enlarge the kitchen space, double the dining-area seating capacity, add cabinets and storage, install new flooring and countertops and more. In order to enable our partners to complete these upgrades, we were able to negotiate a zero-cost or reduced rate from all contractors working on the project.

Although renovations for the Alexandria Women Shelter are now complete, HomeAid is continuing its mission to provide renovation and construction assistance to local shelter organizations throughout the year, and Brookfield Residential will be there to help.
