Tips for House-Hunting in the Winter

Thursday February 22, 2018

There’s no need to postpone the search for a new home just because it’s winter. While you’re hibernating, you could be missing out on the home of your dreams. You probably start your new home search online, browsing real estate listings in the warmth of your cozy home. Once you have narrowed down your list of homes to see, follow these tips for house-hunting in the winter.

Consider the accessibility. Seeing a home in the winter gives you valuable insight into features like the way the roads are maintained. Are the streets and driveway plowed well? Think about coming home here on a wintry night. Will you be able to access drive up your street and driveway to get home? As you walk to the front entry, do you find slippery spots?

Our Covington Pointe community is designed for busy families who want a home that fits into their unique lifestyle. Featuring a wide selection of floor plans, this gorgeous community is located among top-ranked elementary and middle schools with a convenient sidewalk system connecting the community to each one!

We are excited to announce that we’re once again building new homes in two of Brunswick’s most popular communities, Carriage Gate Plantation and The Plantation at Golden Isles! New home buyers in Brunswick will have limited opportunities to purchase Lamar Smith homes in these two communities, as limited inventory homes are still available.

Carriage Gate Plantation

Carriage Gate Plantation is a beautiful gated community featuring lakes, lagoons and towering live oaks surrounding the homes, as well as preserved green space and buffers to enhance the community’s natural feel. This one-of-a-kind community also features an Architectural Review Committee, which allows for a unique yet cohesive community appearance while ensuring that all homes are built to the committee’s exacting standards.

For the past few years, you might have been watching the real estate market with interest, but didn’t feel ready to make the leap from renter to homeowner. You can still take advantage of low interest rates.

Why are you hesitating?

Here are some telltale signs you might be more ready than you think.

We’re hearing so much talk about “down-sizing” these days. People are finding ways to step back from quantity, and focus on quality. Simplify. Get rid of the excess. Live with less.

But is “down-sizing” really the right term? Maybe “right-sizing” is more accurate. Find the lifestyle that provides a better fit to your current priorities. Ten or twenty years ago, living in a suburb, for example, might have been the right choice, and the commute was worth it because your kids were in a great school district. Now, you might be yearning for a more walkable way of life. Conversely, your “right-size” lifestyle could include a stronger sense of community that comes with living in a non-urban neighborhood.

Country life or city dwelling: Which lifestyle works for you?

You could fit the entire population of Vermont in the city of Las Vegas, with plenty of room to spare. Of course, most Vermonters would run screaming from the city. And city dwellers would probably feel restless in a rural setting for an extended period of time.

Each environment—urban and rural—offers its own unique pros and cons. Your life situation—single, married, parent or no kids—has a big impact on your choice of living in the city or the country.
