Trends in Home Building

Trends in Home Building

If you're looking for townhouse floor plans, you've come to the right place. If you're a trendsetter in home building, you'll know that the latest trends in home building include many features that are at the core of the townhouse.

Trends in Home Building

Going Green

Townhouses are notoriously green and getting greener with new technology. If you live in a townhouse, you already know this. For those who don't you share common walls with neighbors which reduces the need to heat or cool your home considerably. Depending on the design, solar panels can easily be installed on what are commonly flat roofs. Energy efficient windows and doors make the homes even more eco friendly and energy efficient.

Open Floor Plans

The trend in home design has been the open floor plan for a while now. Families like large common areas, especially for entertaining. Townhouses utilize the open floor plan because space must be used wisely. Additionally, because of the shared walls light must be considered. An open floor plan allows for the most natural light to envelope the room. 

Multiple Generations

These days, many families are considering building homes with the idea in mind that there will be many generations living under one roof. That could mean children who stay in the home longer, return after college or grandparents who live in the home to help raise the kids or who prefer family over a nursing home or assisted living facility. The townhouse design allows for bedrooms on each level providing privacy and one's own space while remaining in the fold.

Aging in Place

More and more people are opting to age in place. This means living in your home instead of moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home. A home that is optimal for aging in place is often a single level home but homes with elevators and other considerations for those with special needs work well. Townhomes are easy to navigate and often have elevators since they tend to be three levels or more.

Builder Confidence Remains on Solid Footing in March

Builder Confidence Remains on Solid Footing in March

Builder confidence remains high according to this recent article from the National Association of Home Builders

(NAHB)

Builder confidence in the market for newly-built single-family homes edged down one point to a level of 70 in March from a downwardly revised February reading on the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) but remains in strong territory.

“Builders’ optimism continues to be fueled by growing consumer demand for housing and confidence in the market,” said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel, a custom home builder from LaPlace, La. “However, builders are reporting challenges in finding buildable lots, which could limit their ability to meet this demand.”

“A strong labor market, rising incomes and a growing economy are boosting demand for homeownership even as interest rates rise,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “With these economic fundamentals in place, the single-family sector should continue to make gains at a gradual pace in the months ahead.”

Derived from a monthly survey that NAHB has been conducting for 30 years, the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average” or “low to very low.” Scores for each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates 
that more builders view conditions as good than poor.

The HMI component gauging current sales conditions held steady at 77, the chart measuring sales expectations in the next six months dropped two points to 78, and the index gauging buyer traffic fell three points to 51.

Looking at the three-month moving averages for regional HMI scores, the Northeast rose one point to 57, the South decreased one point to 73, the West fell two points to 79, and the Midwest dropped four points to 68.
