BUFFALO, NY —The demand for new construction homes has soared this year as homebuyers have spent more time sheltering at home, and discovering it’s not the shelter they want. Western New York home builder Forbes Capretto Homes has stepped up to meet the heightened demand and is readying single-family homes for quick move-in.
“Buyers are enthusiastic about the prospect of a new home, and the low interest rates certainly make them more affordable”, explains David Capretto, the company president. “We’ve seen inventory drop dramatically in the wake of this surge, so we’re building more homes to deliver to buyers in a more timely manner.”
A recent Bloomberg survey showed a rise in single-family home construction, the fastest increase since 2007. The report cites “a shift in tastes because of the Covid-19 pandemic as Americans seek more space and move from cities to suburbs.”
New home inventory coming to Lancaster, NY
A move-in ready is nearing completion at Hidden Meadow, a Forbes Capretto Homes community in Lancaster, NY. The two-story home at 46 Deepwood Place is situated on an 80-foot by 140-foot lot, which provides the larger yard that many buyers are seeking. It can easily accommodate play structures, a swimming pool, and outdoor furnishings.
This home has been constructed in the Monroe floor plan, a four-bedroom, 2.5-bath home with 2,123 square feet of interior living space. Jessica Miranda, a Forbes Capretto Homes New Home Consultant, says the natural light streaming through the interior is a real plus.
“The two-story great room and large windows streams an abundance of light in here, which is something that everyone appreciates. Sunlight is a natural mood booster and enhances the environment in this home” Miranda points out.
46 Deepwood Place in Lancaster is nearing completion and reflects the popular open concept in the main living area, and includes a formal dining room in addition to the breakfast nook. According to Miranda, the formal dining room has experienced new appeal to today’s homebuyers. It also provides valuable flex space, easily converted to a home office, classroom, fitness center, hobby studio, library, or other function.
The natural beauty of granite is featured in the kitchen and bathrooms. This brand-new home also incorporates a family entry from the garage, with additional storage for keeping life organized.
Hidden Meadow is located just 10 minutes from the Buffalo/Niagara International Airport and the New York State Thruway, making commutes more convenient. Shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreation is also easily accessible, with Target, Wegmans, and many other venues just minutes from the neighborhood. Hidden Meadow residents are served by the highly rated Lancaster School District. The family-friendly community features the safety of sidewalks, too.
