5 Questions to Ask Yourself When Picking a Floorplan

There are many factors to consider when purchasing a new home. Your needs and your lifestyle should help prioritize and influence your decision of selecting a floorplan. As a premier Charlotte NC home builder, we specialize in new construction and redevelopment. Whether you’re looking for a single-family home or a townhome or duet home, we offer a variety of floorplans to fit your needs. Answer these five questions to help you pick the right floorplan.

  1. Why are you moving? – This is an important question to ask yourself. Maybe you are currently renting and looking to purchase a home. Or you may lack space and need more room. Your family could be growing or downsizing. Knowing why you are moving can help put your needs into perspective.
  2. What are you needs? –This can include square footage, storage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a mudroom, garage, dedicated workspace, or anything that are nonnegotiable requirements needed for you to live comfortably in your new home.
  3. What are your wants? – Your wants can include paint color, flooring, double ovens, walk-in closets, two-car garage, a fireplace in your living room or bedroom, or a front porch or rear deck. These are features in a floorplan may not be necessary but could enhance your quality of life. Some of your wants may even be needs depending on your lifestyle.
  4. Do you want an open-concept home or more tradition? – Do you prefer hosting intimate dinners at home? Then maybe a traditional floorplan is more your style. Or you may like to host and entertain so open concept floorplan is the right choice. Knowing your style will help you choose the floorplan that is right for you.
  5. What is your current and future lifestyle? – We offer an array of different floorplans. Consider how you plan on using the space and how you would like to experience the space. The last thing you want to do is purchase a new home that does not fit your lifestyle. At the same time, you should keep your long-term needs in mind. Maybe you’re planning a family in a couple of years or aging and will need single story living in the future. Select something that you can not only live in comfortably but also grow into so that you don’t run out of rooms and space.
