What do Homebuyers Really Want in Their New Home? 

  1. Open Floor Plan

An open floor plan is at the top of most homeowners wish lists. An open floor plan makes entertaining easy, maximizes space, and makes your home look bigger and brighter. Why not dedicate more square footage to the places you use most? Our homes are built and designed for the way you live. We call them EASYLIVING™ plans. The plans are functional, spacious, and comfortable while maintaining a sense of beauty and craftsmanship.


  1. Expanded Kitchen Islands

Who doesn’t want a large kitchen island? Kitchen Islands are Expanded to become the focal point of where you gather by increasing room for seating and food preparation. The Kitchen is the social center of your home, and a well-designed island offers a place for people to congregate. It serves a multitude of roles, from prepping for dinner, homework, or just a social gathering! While most people are venturing away from a formal dining space, this large island can act as just that. Which brings us to our next feature favorite!

  1. Flex Rooms

Building Flexibility into your home makes the space your very own! A formal dining room may not fit your lifestyle, but an office may be just what you need. Our home designs incorporate a ‘flex room’ that can be used as a study, formal dining, or a guest suite, that allows your family to choose what they would like to do with the space to fit their everyday needs.

  1. Drop Zones

A place to drop your mail is no longer enough. We have countless electronics; cell phone, ipads, tablets, laptops, etc. That doesn’t even include all the bags our kids carry along! Built-in Drop Zones are a great way to enhance organization. We offer a Desk, Cubby, or a Desk/Cubby Combo Drop Zone, but no matter which you choose each is a great way to eliminate clutter throughout your home with a great stop and drop location for things when you get home!


  1. Direct Connect Laundry™ Rooms

Homeowners love the innovation of our plans and the functionality and thought behind the design. The Direct Connect Laundry™ is an option in almost all Legacy Home.  This functional concept allows convenient access to the laundry room from the master bedroom closet.  If you just need to fluff something in the dryer, walk just a few steps and throw it in.  No more excuses for mountains of dirty clothes piling up in your pristine master bath retreat.  No more hauling piles of of clean laundry across the house with leaving a trail behind – now you can literally reach one hand in the dryer to grab that clean shirt and use the other hand to grab a hangar! Worried about privacy?  Locks are included on the door!  And if you just don’t want this feature, no worries, we can just take out the door and finish the wall!  We hear more positive comments from homeowners about the Direct Connect Laundry™ than just about any other EASYLIVING™ feature, including comments like ‘how did I ever live without that door!’

Why Buy New? – The Advantages of Buying a New Home

Home Ownership is rewarding and exciting, but it is also a huge decision and a big responsibility.  Why not buy and design a new home to fit you and your family perfectly!  Your home should be a reflection of your taste and style.  With “used” homes, you can’t personalize the home to create that perfect look.  Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can select your favorite cabinets, counter tops, appliances, flooring, and more?  And there are other questions with used homes. Will that HVAC system hold up much longer?  And just how old  is that stained carpet?  When you buy a new Legacy home, you always get what you want, including peace-of-mind.
