The Emergence of Luxury Homes and What Defines Them

The term luxury can have multiple meanings, but in real estate, the term often refers to a home that possesses certain features, amenities, or architectural characteristics. Luxury homes have become quite popular in recent years, as people look for entrancing curb appeal and spellbinding homes that stand out from the rest. Palo Verde Homes and custom builders can help you redefine luxury the way you envision it.

What Makes Luxury?

We all know it when we hear it. Yet, it’s often hard to define. To some, it might suggest affluence, to others a mere surface extravagance, a preoccupation with polished aesthetics, but it can simply mean a home that stands out, a home that is eye-catching, creates an impression and says something special —perhaps mysterious— about the people that live there. It’s a home that is in some ways a work of art and a representation of architectural integrity and beauty.

Real estate, like any other market, is always changing and expanding. Home features and fashions change as lifestyles and culture change, but luxurious doesn’t just mean fancy finishes and intricate fountains by the pool. In this way, it is broadly defined, but certain characteristics help determine what constitutes luxury.

When it comes to real estate, luxury can mean:

Location & Surrounding Areas

One thing that defines a home is the location and its surrounding area. A home’s value is often defined by the neighborhood, neighboring houses, and the area of the city. In recent years, however, people are re-defining what good location means and it can change depending on a variety of factors. Someone might not find a gated community as their ideal location and might look for a more detached and rural sensibility. They might find a home near a park or a mountain trail to represent their idea of luxurious.

Lifestyle

Luxurious living also means a home that can provide the lifestyle you want. A lot of times this means a home that grants people the ability for unique perks that are particularly important to them. For example, privacy. The modern world is not often concerned with privacy and personal spaces, but in their home people see this as a major advantage. A lot of times this is directly connected to security and other personal concerns. Luxury homes might include long driveways, gated and/or separated yards that provide slight seclusion or shielding from the world.

Personal

In other words, customization. The very idea of a customized home translates to comfort. Homeowners that have an opportunity to define certain characteristics of their home usually opt for features that would normally categorize real estate as luxury. This might include large walk-in closets, custom floors, cabinets, or individualized rooms. Luxury is not one size fits all. It is personal and defined by the homeowner’s preferences and vision.

Technologically Advanced

Luxury is smart. By today’s definition, smart refers to possessing unique technological capacity. This usually refers to a home that is equipped with the capabilities of home automation and other smart technological features popular today. There is a wide range of smart features in newer homes and these can be anything from motion detectors, security systems, automatic AC systems, and more.

Finding the Right Home Builder

Home Builders.When you are in the market for your next home the first thing you have to consider is buying a new or pre-owned home. Once you decide that going with a new home is the right choice, the next step is thinking about builders. You want to be sure to find a reputable company that offers what you want in a home. When you are buying a home, most often times you are making the biggest investment of your life. You want to be sure that you do your research and pick what is best for your family.

Quality Building Practices

The first thing you want to find out is what kind of building practices your prospective company employs. There is a big difference between tract home builders and custom home builders. For one thing, the main goal of a tract home building company is to pump out homes. You often find that these homes are built quickly and have small defects that can creep up later on down the line. The homes may also be less expensive, but again this is due to building practices. A custom home builder is most of the time a smaller-volume builder. They are more interested in quality than quantity. You will have the opportunity to work with your contractors to pick an design the right home for your family.

Green Home

Be sure to find out if your prospective builder utilizes sustainable materials and includes building practices that can increase the Energy Star rating and energy efficiency of your home. This can include installing the right windows and appliances, using quality building materials and including the right insulation.

Custom Options

You can get more bang for your buck when you turn to a company that offers custom options for your home. This can include everything from tile and countertops to floorplans and choosing the right neighborhood. When a builder does not offer these option you may want to consider moving on. You want to be sure that you and your needs are the priority, and not pumping out the next home.

Pick the Right Home Builder

When you are making the biggest investment of your life you want to be sure that you make the right choice.

3 Unique Ways to Narrow Your Search of New Properties

large sign with the words new listing written within it in black bold letters The Internet is great because of how accessible it is but with that accessibility comes a lot of clutter. When it comes to searching for new properties, what one hopes to be a simple online search can turn into a hectic and stressful mess. We don’t like hectic and stressful at Palo Verde Homes. For this reason, we will show you three unique ways to narrow your search of new properties in El Paso.

When Looking for New Properties, Search for Custom Builders

By nature, custom builders are building new properties. If you use this method to search for new properties, you’ll definitely minimize the search to just new home builders. You should be able to avoid the slew of results that comes in when typing “homes for sale”. If you go about it that way you may get apartments, rental homes, old homes, realtors and maybe even other irrelevant information. When you type custom builders into the search, you’ll find that Palo Verde Homes is easy to find because we specialize in building custom homes on new properties.

When Looking for New Properties, Search for Awards

If you’re looking for new properties, then chances are it’s because you’re looking for the best. Maybe you’ve heard of a prestigious award that builders get. Look up that award and see which builders appear in the search results. Palo Verde Homes was named 2015 EPAB Builder of the Year, for example. It’s an accolade we’re very proud of but we’re also happy that it is yet another way our customers to quickly find us online.   

When Looking for New Properties, Search for the Latest Upgrades  

To narrow down your search of new properties, try including a specific upgrade with your search. For example you can try searching “new properties that are energy efficient”. Refrigerated air and other energy efficient appliances are often installed into new homes; more so than in existing homes that are for sale. Here at Palo Verde Homes, energy efficiency is pretty much standard. We believe in saving our homeowners energy and money.a happy couple inside  an empty bedroom with moving boxes stacked up in the corner and two swatches of paint on the wall behind them

It is not a lie that the Sun City has grown tremendously in the last couple of years, making builders a hot commodity. This means that when you finally start shopping around for a builder to construct your dream home, something has to make them stand out from the rest. At Palo Verde Homes, we pride ourselves by offering a prospective client everything they could ask for in a contractor.

Like most builders, we offer an inventory of ready-made floor plans that you can choose from, or two semi-custom floor plans that effectively provide the client with a jumping board to their future home. This can save time for those clients who might not have a good grasp on what type of home they want, or those who simply want their home build in an efficient manner.

Our two semi-custom floor plans allow clients to have a base for their ideas. You can choose one of the two, then meet with our friendly architect to complete the design in the way you want it. This is a way to give clients who already have an idea of what their home should look like but have no real idea of where to begin a good base to play with.

What sets us apart is that we also offer a total custom package for those clients who already know what they want their home to look like. We help you from the beginning to create a home that you design from start to finish, providing you advice, advice and alternatives if something cannot be done or does not work out. So no matter what you are looking for in a builder, we can say that we offer not only quality materials, energy efficient options and safe communities in a rapidly growing city, but the chance to make whatever you want a reality.
