Selecting a Home Site to Suite Your Needs in a Boone Homes Community

January 10, 2022

So you’ve decided to work with Boone Homes to build the home you’ve always dreamed of—now what? It’s time to hit the ground running, starting with finding the right community and home site for your future home. Our team has rounded up a few tips to help you navigate the available options and select a home site that’s perfect for you and your family. 

Consider the community

Boone Homes builds new-construction neighborhoods in some of the most sought-after locations in the greater Richmond area. One of our core values as a company is to build homes within each community that vary in appearance while blending together architecturally—ensuring there’s no “cookie cutter” feel that other neighborhoods often succumb to. By instilling a sense of neighborhood integrity, homeowners can rest assured that their home values will appreciate steadily. 

With that in mind, there’s really no wrong choice when it comes to selecting the ideal Boone Homes community for your future home. Consider the location, its proximity to what’s important to you (amenities, attractions, schools, work) and make sure it offers the lifestyle you’re looking for. 

Location is key

Once you’ve decided on a community, it’s time to scope out the best home site for your family. There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a site, especially if it’s a newer community with more available lot options. 

While all of Boone’s communities have been designed with residents’ comfort and quality of life in mind, personal preferences can play the largest role in site selection. Some people love living closer to the entrance of their community, while others prefer as far from outside roads as possible. If a community backs up to green space or woods, decide if it’s important for you to have a view. Some communities have amenities included, and homeowners should determine how close or far they’d prefer to live to them. Lastly, consider if you’d rather live on a passing street or on a cul-de-sac, if available. Our sales team will walk you through the community and various lots available so you can envision what your life will look like before finalizing any decisions.

How your floor plan fits in

Location within the community is important, but homeowners also have to take the vision of their finalized home into account. If you’re leaning toward one of the larger floor plans offered by Boone Homes, you may want a larger lot to accommodate your square footage without taking away from your yard. On the other hand, less square footage means you can select a smaller home site. Consider any additions to your home that may take up more space on the lot like an added sunroom, extended bay windows, or a covered patio. Let your sales manager know your expectations for your new home and we can help you determine which lot best suites your needs.
