Often times when building a new home, many property owners do not give as much thought to the exterior of the home as they do the interior. When making your plans be sure to take all options into consideration: everything from the siding to the landscaping or from the porch to the driveway. For many families the outside of the home can be just as important as the inside. For an example, if you have children you may want to fence in the backyard as a safe play area. If you have a lot of tools, you may want an outdoor work shed. Here is a simple checklist of items you may want to consider while in the planning stages of home building.
- Do you want patios, decks, a sunroom, covered porches etc.?
- Would you like a pool or grill area?
- Is a fence needed?
- What type of driveway would you prefer?
- Do you want vinyl siding, brick or other type of siding for your home?
- What color would you like the trim, shutters, shingles, siding, etc. to be?
- Are you planning for a garage? If so, do you need a 1 or 2 car garage?
- Will you want an outdoor storage shed?
- How many faucets or electrical outlets will you need outside the house?
- Is there any special landscaping preferred?

When building a new home, always keep in mind that you may one day decide to build a larger home or move from the area. In this case, resale value of your new construction is extremely important. There are two areas of your home that you should focus on during building. The Kitchen and bathrooms are what sells a home.
An updated open kitchen that is spacious and has plenty of natural light is most desirable in today’s market. Additional options that are great for resale are granite or quartz countertops, ample counter space including an island or peninsula, a pantry, quality appliances and a nice backsplash.
With bathrooms, it is essential that there are at least 2 or 2 ½ bathrooms in the home. Having a full bathroom in the master suite is nearly expected in most homes today. Master baths that have the best selling features are of a good size with a large walk in shower. Any upgrades such as quality counter tops, double sinks and tile are an advantage. An additional full bathroom with a tub and shower combination is usually sufficient for any additional bedrooms in the home. For an extra bonus, a half bath for guests is virtually a guaranteed sell especially if you have a multi-story home.
