The process of buying and building a new home can be very intimidating and very exciting. The mere thought of a gorgeous kitchen, huge closets, open floor plan and all the other modern amenities will lure the best of us into the impeccably staged model homes of the builders. You will need to decide on the communty, the builder, the floor plan and finally all the options that you would like to add. Some builders will include certain options and/or offer a credit toward other options. But they can add up fast increasing your purchase price significantly. You can not ask enough questions. And it is best to have a buyer's agent with you.

    More Good News

    The new construction season is really showing signs of improvement.  Today it was reported that East West Communities that developed Brandermill, Woodlake and Patriots Landing has purchased the undeveloped portion of the Hallsley subdivision in Midlothian.  The subdivision began development in 2006 but came to a halt when the economy slowed.  There are only 100 homes occupied.  See the link below for the full story from the RTD

    Eagle Construction's Home Gallery

    A visit to Eagle Home Gallery in West Broad Village will allow you to find lots of innovative ideas for your new home or for your current home.  They are open daily and will offer a personal tour or you can just wander around.  This national award winning facility (those are their words) is 4000 square feet of home displays with the latest trends in appliances, technologies, products and interior design.  With interactive displays you can view even more choices by combining finishes.  There are 4 complete kitchens, 3 full baths, 3 half baths, and a laundry room.  The gallery also features 5 expansive selections of counter tops, cabinetry, flooring, fireplaces, lighting and more.

    I stopped by last week for a preview and was amazed at the extensive options.  It's worth going.   So on your next trip to Trader Joe's or Whole Foods take a few minutes to "pop in" and take a quick tour.

    The address is 2240 Old Brick Rd.  Glen Allen, VA 23060
