Lifestyle Homes FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why purchase a new home over a home for sale?

Older, previously lived-in homes come with a history, be it questionable design, leaky windows or tired plumbing. New Lifestyle Homes are designed for how we live today and offer a variety of customizing options — all of which come installed and with a warranty and energy efficiency in mind.

Are new homes as well-built as older homes?

Lifestyle Homes are energy efficient. New windows, HVAC equipment, insulation and sealing techniques consume about half as much energy as homes built prior to 1980. This translates into energy savings for you and environmental sustainability for our planet.

Buying Home vs. Renting

Although renting allows for some autonomy from maintenance, you can’t build equity or receive helpful tax benefits. Perhaps the greatest benefit of buying a Lifestyle home is freedom—freedom to make improvements, paint walls and hang pictures…how, when, wherever you want. Find out your financing options and select your floor plan today.

Why do some home building options seem to cost more through Lifestyle Homes than at local home improvement stores?

Estimates from many retail outlets are very conservative and often don’t consider various necessary costs. Lifestyle Homes also offers a “bumper-to-bumper” warranty. Additionally, we offer you the convenience of coordinating the purchasing and installation of select items.

Once I choose a floor plan model, do I have any other options?

Once you have chosen your floor plan, there are several options available to personalize your home. At time of contract, you can make structural selections, including room extensions, fireplaces and ceiling vaults. You will have an opportunity to make many color and interior selections as well.

How will I be able to customize my Lifestyle Home?

There are many opportunities to customize the look and feel of your new Lifestyle home once you select your floor plan. Your color specialist and professional designer will work with you through the selection process to ensure the final product is the home of which you have always dreamed.

How much money will I need at closing?

Your closing costs depend upon the sale price of your Lifestyle Home, the amount of your down payment and fees linked to the home’s purchase and escrow items for mortgage insurance, prepaid taxes, attorney’s fees, title insurance and so on.
