Looking for new homes for sale? They can provide many benefits that are typically not found in old homes. Here are some of those nice features you'll want to look out for.
Interior Wall Insulation
While it is quite common to add insulation to the exterior walls to keep your home well insulated, there is a big benefit to having insulation in the interior walls. You'll find that it drastically reduces the noise that bleeds through between rooms. This is very important with bedrooms, where you want it to remain quiet so that you do not disturb other people that are sleeping in your home. Having plaster walls can also help contribute to dampening sounds, while drywall is more likely to allow the sound to pass through.
Garage Attic Storage
If you have a garage that does not have a living space directly above it, the home may be wasting the open space when it could be used to its fullest. Look for a garage that has an attic with additional storage space. You will appreciate having the additional square footage when you start running out of room in the home.
It is very difficult to modify the system the home uses for heat once you move in. That's why it is a good idea to look for a home that has radiant heat. You'll find that it provides much more comfort during the winter than those heating systems that rely on forced air. You'll have a cool head and warm toes, with no energy being wasted by blowing air to the top of the ceiling where heat rises.
Second Floor Laundry Room
It has become a trend these days to see the laundry room moved out of the basement and on the second floor where the bedrooms are located. There is no need to lug laundry up and down stairs when you are likely taking it from the bedrooms and bathrooms the majority of the time. You won't believe what a convenience it is until you do your laundry for the first time.
Empty Outlets With Conduits
You never know how your home will be wired in the future, which is why it is good to be prepared for all situations. A nice feature to have is empty outlets with conduits that lead to your basement. This will allow you to easily fit new wires through the home when the time comes. Want to add a wired ethernet throughout the home because you don't want to depend on WiFi? You can do this with empty outlets that have been futureproofed.Share
