NAHB Reveals Most Popular Features In New Homes

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is sharing the most popular features in new single-family homes for 2014. Builders from across the country were surveyed on what features were more likely to be included in new homes this year. Builders are including features that are practical and functional for the daily lives of today’s home buyers.

The top features included in this year’s new construction homes are:

  • walk-in closets in the Master bedroom
  • low-E windows
  • a separate laundry room
  • a great room

Builders also list features such as granite countertops, a double sink and a central island as winning elements in new-home kitchens, and a linen closet and a private toilet in the bathroom. Additional features likely to be included throughout the home include first-floor ceilings at least nine-feet high, a front porch, outdoor lighting and a patio.

Because new construction homes can be personally designed to suit the needs of homeowners, it gives them more flexibility to create a space that’s perfect for their family. That’s why now is a great time to invest in your future and build the home of your dreams! Contact a Ball Homes Specialist for more information!

2013 International Builders' Show

We recently took some of our employees to the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.

The International Builders' Show (IBS) is sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders' and is the largest annual residential construction show in the world. The show features the latest innovations and products in new construction. Over 3 days, 900 exhibitors were showcased and over 100 education sessions were given to all in attendance.

Our team was able to learn a lot and we're excited to put new techniques and ideas into practice here at Ball Homes! We're looking forward to what 2013 has in store for us!
