The Real Estate market is on fire right now. With low interests rates, it feels like the right time to get into the home of your dreams. When looking at the marketplace, you’ll have two choices: buy existing, or build new. While Adair Homes has always made the case for building new—now it appears we aren’t the only ones espousing the advantages of new construction. Real Estate authority Zillow recently released a report on the current state of homebuilding entitled ‘New Construction, Consumer Housing Trends Report’. Inside the report they’ve collated information from Realtors and Home Sellers on the why’s behind the new desire for custom construction.

There’s peace of mind knowing that your microwave and refrigerator are new, energy efficient, and free of mold and fungi.

  6. We all have priorities. If you’re a budding chef, you might want to invest in a super deep stainless steel sink. Perhaps you prioritize relaxation, and a jetted tub is a desirable addition to your home.
