Building a new home in the Wallingford area is not only a major financial investment; it’s also a longer-range investment. Flipping houses as fast as possible may have made for some entertaining reality television viewing (for a while) but it’s not the way most people want to pursue their home purchases.
In reality, most people who understand real estate will suggest that it’s awfully hard to get a good return on your investment in less than five years. And frankly, most homeowners would prefer to live in their homes longer than that—if they’ve selected a home they really love.
Of course selecting the right neighborhood for your new home plays a huge role in how comfortable you’ll feel in your new home down the road. It’s relatively easy for any brand new home to look good; but what will your neighborhood look like in five years or so?
So much of what determines a neighborhoods quality and character rests on the careful planning that goes into the creation of that community. That kind of careful planning is obvious in two fantastic new communities.
Bridgewater Estates is a community that features 30 beautiful architect-designed homes that are set on exceptional acre+ home sites in the Northford section of North Branford, CT. Nestled in the shadow of Totoket Mountain, the community was designed as a walkable neighborhood in a natural setting. If you take a look at the plan for the community, you’ll see that it’s set apart to protect its beauty and serenity.
And still, essentials such as shopping, services and schools are all located conveniently nearby. It’s close to Middletown and Wallingford as well as Guilford and the shoreline. And you’ll be just 20 minutes away from New Haven, with its renowned dining, entertainment and educational venues. In Bridgewater Estates you’ll have your choice between a number of our Classic home plans or the grand exteriors and up-to-the-minute interiors of our Grand home plans.
Royal Oaks is another great new neighborhood located on Wallingford’s picturesque west side. Planned with equal care, Royal Oaks is limited to 16 home sites designed to blend perfectly into open spaces and conservation areas. Residents can enjoy quiet strolls along the sidewalks of the cul de sac roadway. A quick look at the community plan shows why this neighborhood is so attractive now—and will be for years to come.
Naturally, the quality homes built in the neighborhood are one reason this community will continue to look great 5, 10, or 25 years down the road.
What will your neighborhood look like in 5 years? That depends on the careful planning that goes into the community ahead of time and on the quality of the homes built within the neighborhood.
