1. Why purchasing a new home when builder inventory is low is a good “personal” decision

  5. Seven reasons to overcome your skepticism and sign up on a builder’s preview list

    November 29 - So here we are a builder, CarrHomes, with a new single family home community in Herndon, Virgina–Shaker Knolls, about to get started.  We tell our ad agency to put a "Coming Soon" sign-up page on our web site, but not to give out info like pricing or floorplans, cause, well, we're just not ready yet.

  7. Homes for Immediate Delivery Yield Immediate Benefits

    October 4 - No matter what they call them every builder has homes that are about to be (or already are) ready to move in. And, in most cases, - like the "option packages" car dealers offer, these homes for "quick" or "immediate delivery" are as good or better values than the one yet to be built, where  you pick out all your upgrades individually. Why? For one you get to actually see the flooring,…Read More

  8. Five reasons why our included lower level in Hamilton, VA is actually priceless

    September 12 - Forget that the  customized Oakton Model we're delivering this November at Waterford Creek  is sited on three acres  includes over 6,377 sq. feet of finished space, and a three-car side entry garage.

  10. So what do you think about our 12″ “Jack Arch” & keystones (w/ brick elevations)?

    July 26 - If you're like most of our homebuyers you don't give this exterior detail a second thought until you see it and decide for yourself it enhances and distinguishes our northern Virginia homes from the competition.  When we point out our stair treads are wider, you might yawn until you actually climb the stairs, with  less huffing and puffing. The same has to be true of our 5-1/4" baseboa…Read More
