South Florida’s Broward and Palm Beach counties remain popular options for home-buyers because of the wide range of attractive, well-maintained urban and suburban residential communities; single family, multi-generational and over-55 properties.
Added to this mix is a great variety of ‘new builds’ – new construction homes and condos from affordable to spectacular.
The appeal of new construction goes beyond the immediate pleasure of knowing thatyour home will be in pristine condition when you move in. Important considerations are that these homes have been built to the latest building standards, will be more energy-efficient with newer technologies, such as ‘smart thermostats’ and, of course, will have the all-important home warrant Here’s a brief look at a few of these new builds and some of their appealing modern features.
