Look for These Things in a New Home

When you’re buying a new home, there are so many things to consider. Trendmaker Homes is here to help! Read on for a checklist to keep in mind as you look for a new home.

Location, location, location.

Location tops almost everyone’s priority list, and is one of the most important aspects of purchasing a new home. Do you need easy access to a major roadway to get to work each day? How are the area schools? Is the neighborhood quiet? Are parks, trails and other active-lifestyle features must-haves on your list?

You’ll find everything you need and more in a Trendmaker community – stunning homes in accessible neighborhoods with plenty of amenities just right for your lifestyle. Trendmaker builds beautiful homes in a range of price points in convenient master-planned communities in the Houston and Austin areas. With prime locations in each city, you’ll be close to excellent schools, dining, shopping and commuting.

Mix form with function.

When looking for a new home, think about how you plan to use your space. Are you an entertainer extraordinaire or raising a young family? Do you need a flex room for a home office, nursery or potential yoga studio?

Selecting an open, airy floor plan and flexible options allow you to make the most of your space. Ample windows can fill your home with pleasing sunlight and blend indoor and outdoor areas. Trendmaker Homes offers versatile designs so you can find the ideal floor plan for your needs.

Explore the great outdoors.

Dinner for two alfresco under the stars? Or a spirited backyard barbecue with the neighbors to celebrate a holiday? Lone Star State weather generally allows for outdoor fun most of the year, so you’ll definitely want to check out the backyard and neighborhood trails. Trendmaker homes include exceptional outdoor areas, whether you prefer a Texas-sized, spacious lawn or a patio.

You’ll find plenty of great spaces to set up the kids’ playscape or create an outdoor kitchen that would make the most seasoned chef envious.

Live in comfort and style.

Here’s where your personality can truly shine. Whether you choose a move-in ready home or opt to work with our Design Studio on stylish selections, Trendmaker Homes is known for beautiful, premium finishes that come in every home. You’ll find exceptional flooring, cabinetry, hardware and more in on-trend colors, styles and shapes, so you don’t ever have to sacrifice style or comfort. In a Trendmaker home, you can have it all.

Go green.

When you purchase a new home, you want to feel sure that your home is energy-efficient and cost-effective. Saving energy pays off in the long run, making your home more comfortable and putting more green back in your wallet. All Trendmaker homes come standard with LivingSmart®, a program that includes features to improve energy-efficiency, plus the health and well-being of you, your family and the planet.

Smart technology and appliances, low E2 glazing on windows and radiant roof barriers are just some of the many ways Trendmaker Homes works to create some of the most energy-efficient homes in Texas. Every LivingSmart® home is independently certified to exceed local energy codes.
