The recently released “What Home Buyers Really Want” study from the NAHB highlights the most highly desired features in new homes. (As noted in a national survey of more than 3,200 recent and prospective home buyers.) New Tradition Homes can proudly state that we not only know what you want in a new home… it’s already here!
Among the most desired features is, surprisingly, a laundry room. Our homes have laundry rooms to love, with plenty of light and space, customized cabinetry, and convenient locations on either the first or second floor. (Say goodbye to your dark, dank and cramped laundry room!)
Top New Home Features
Other “most wanted” features are energy efficient windows, appliances, and lighting. We’re all over those, too. New Tradition Homes is a RESNET Energy Smart Builder®, and each home we build is 100% ENERGY STAR® 3rd party certified. In fact, New Tradition Homes began our partnership with the EPA's ENERGY STAR® Program in 2004, pioneering the way for this program in the Pacific Northwest. We are proud to have recently received the 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR® by the US Dept. of Energy.
Our high performance windows minimize the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that comes in through the glass while reducing heat loss. We always include highly efficient water heaters, lighting and appliances, which save you money while saving precious resources. Every home is verified by a third party through a HERS rating system.
Rounding out the list of features that buyers want?
No doubt about it. When it comes to the essentials, the must-haves in your new home, New Tradition Homes knows what you want. And we’ve already included them. All you have to do is pick your community! For more information, visit NewTraditionHomes.com or call Shelley and Nick at 360-787-9352.
NTH is very organized and delivers a top quality product which they stand behind. We were allowed to customize many features of our home to make it function the way we wanted it to. The flexibility allowed was great. It took a little longer than some other builders, but the end result was worth the wait.
