Top Features of New Homes

a happy young family in new homseIf you are looking into some of the new homes that are currently available, then chances are, you want it to have all of the latest and greatest features. While there are endless choices and possibilities, here are the top choices compiled by home builders and real estate agents from across the country. The team at Santana Homes is ready to make your dream a reality!

Make Your New Home a Smart Home

Google and Amazon both offer mechanisms that allow you to control the lights, appliances, and temperature through the use of their devices. The caveat being that these things must be “smart” enough to be controlled. If you would like to simply ask your home to turn on the lights or turn up the tunes, then there are new homes that are already equipped with this technology before you move in. Not only do these devices help when your hands are full, but they also help you to save money and prevent burglaries.

New Homes Go Green

Many new homes tend to have low-flow shower heads and dual flush toilets. A low flow shower head uses air to deliver the same water pressure as a traditional shower head. The flow rate of one gallon per minute as opposed to the three and a half that the old heads put out. Though more expensive up front, a dual flush toilet can save a family of four up to 6,000 gallons of water per year.  

More Fun Features

Two more features to help you save money and the environment are the on-demand water heater and good insulation. Also known as tankless, this water heater only activates when there is a need and can be installed on a wall to free up space. Additionally, if you are having a new home built, forgo the entry-level insulation and go for something that will really stuff the wall and the roof and while you are at it, do not forget the attic.

Chutes and Other Organizers for New Homes

If you are having a new home built, find out if you can have a laundry chute installed. This will make it so that you do not have to lug it all over the house. Your back will thank you later. In addition, also find out if it is possible to have a trash and/or recycle chute put in. This will cut down on the arguing over whose turn it is to take out the garbage and eliminate the smells that come along with kitchen trash.
