Why choose to build in a new community development?

Building a new home within a community development certainly has its advantages. Here are just some of the great reasons why you should build in a community in Halifax:

  • They have the latest technology and infrastructure (great internet and reliable services)
  • A growing community means more resources and money allocated.
  • The amenities – communities are often built close to all the popular amenities
  • Schools – in particular, developers always research the best schools in the are as they choose their location.
  • Being part of a community. Nothing like watching the community grow around you.

How do you choose the best community in Halifax?

Once you’ve decided to build your home within a new community development, choosing the right one can be a bit of a challenge. How do you decide between so many amazing opportunities and developments? Naturally, there are some factors that you can look at while making your decision:

Planned and existing amenities.

Halifax has some amazing local amenities and each community within Halifax has its own. That’s no different with new community developments as well. Check to see what the community is close to for every day necessities and the nice-to-haves. How far will you need to travel to get to the grocery store? The gym? How about schools for your kids?

Ask questions and look at the amenity map on the community page to find out more information.

The stage of development.

Is the community in its infancy or is it already well established? This will determine the amount of construction in the area, how many businesses and amenities are established close to the community, and what you can expect after you move into your new home.

There will also be a lot more options with newer communities. Want the corner lot? The last one on the street? Getting into a planned community development early will give you the choices that you otherwise won’t have if you build late in the development.

What home builders are building within the community

This is important to consider. If you love one of the great local Halifax home builders but they are not currently building within the community you are interested in then perhaps it might not be the right fit.

It is sometimes possible to have an outside builder create your home, depending on the community rules and regulations, so be sure to ask before simply ruling out a community if you really love it.

Physical location.

The physical location of the community will play a big role. If it is on the other side of town compared with where your family works or if it is not as close to the events you currently attend, that is something you should consider. There will always be growth in communities and more amenities will likely arrive, but you can never change where it’s located.
