Finding The Best New Homes

Sep 6, 2007
Cherokee County is one of the fastest growing counties in the Atlanta metropolitan area - which is one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Cherokee County, "where the Metro meets the mountains", offers all of the amenities of living in a major metropolitan area along with all the advantages of living in the luxuriously beautiful lap of Mother Nature. The newest of the new Cherokee County new homes are set against the backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains, with all the serenity and majesty that goes along with it.

If you're looking for a new home in Cherokee County, you'll have your pick of types and styles. Whether you want to live in a single family home in a close-knit community, a gated community of townhouses or a luxury condominium on the waterfront, you'll find what you're looking for in Cherokee County. With so many choices, how do you choose the perfect home for yourself and your family? Here are a few tips from the experts on choosing a home where you and your family will be happy for years.

What sort of community do you want to live in?
Many home buyers make the mistake of looking for the perfect house instead of the perfect home. Remember that "home" is more than just the house that you buy. Buying a home in the right community for you and your family can be the difference between liking your new house and loving it. Consider the features that are important to you in a community, and which are the most important to you, then let your realtor know. Your realtor will be have an easier time finding just the right home for you if you're clear about what you want in a home.

Cherokee County has been growing fast over the last decade, but thanks to the foresight of city fathers, the development of Cherokee County new homes has been carefully planned to ensure that the county retains its essential quality of life. These planned communities are designed to suit everyone from young, single professionals through families with young children through active older adults who are looking for all the luxuries and amenities that will make their retirement years the best years of their lives. Choose from Cherokee County new homes in gated adult communities, single family homes in suburban style neighborhoods and luxury condominiums and town houses tucked into the knolls and hollows of the Appalachian Mountains.

What kind of house do you want to live in?
Do you want a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances and accessories? Does your dream home have a gorgeous view of the lake and mountains? How many bedrooms do you need? Before you start shopping, sit down and make a list of everything you want in your new home, then prioritize them in order of importance. That way you'll have a list to help you narrow down your choices to those that are most likely to please you - and your realtor will have a set of guidelines to keep in mind when looking through his or her listings.

Besides helping you clarify your vision of the home that you want, creating a list like this will help you avoid mistakes that happen when you fall in love with one aspect of a house and ignore all the things that don't match your needs. The view is spectacular, but can you live with one bathroom? The kitchen is enormous, but will that make up for the awkwardly shaped living room? When you know ahead of time what's most important to you, you'll be less likely to find yourself living in a house that you don't love.

What can you afford to buy?
Your finances will play a major part in your decision, of course, but you may be pleasantly surprised at what you can afford. Here in Cherokee County, new homes range in price from the mid-100,000s to upwards of $1.5 million. Whatever your price range, you're likely to find the right home for you and your family within the range.

Take the time to work through the things that are important to you in a new home, then communicate your vision to your realtor. Together, the two of you can sort through listings until you find the homes that meet your requirements and desires. By narrowing your choices down from the start, you'll use your time far more effectively when it's time to start looking at Cherokee County new homes.
