Where Should You Build Your Rochester-Area Home? Where YOU Want To Live!

Where should you build your Rochester area Home Where YOU want to liveYou’ve heard the real estate people chanting their mantra: “Location! Location! Location!” And you know what? They’re right. There are a lot of great places to live in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region. But someone else’s idea of the ideal location may not be what feels like home to you. You should be able to build your custom home where you want, whether it’s in Wayne, Ontario, or Eastern Monroe County. After all, your home site should fit your family’s lifestyle and needs as much as the home you build on it.

Of course it’s not just a matter of geographic location that matters. Some people prefer a building site that’s a little bit larger. If you want a two-acre property with rolling hills view, you might want something like you’ll find in Factors Walk in Ionia. If lake views are something that’s important to you (along with one-acre of property), you might be interested in something in Williamson, in Wayne County. Want wooded acreage with lots of privacy? Check out Pineview Estates in Marion. Or if you’re looking for a somewhat smaller parcel (say .25 or .5 acres) with lots of open space and walking trails, you might find it in Canandaigua, or in Webster.

Some homeowners want the feel of a close-knit community. Others are looking for stand-alone property. If you’re looking for a site on .5 to 1.2 acres of land with a country setting, you may want to check out Greenfield Acres in Marion.

You don’t have to settle for someone else’s idea of what makes the best community or development. You have choices. You can choose the location you want and the kind of community you want to live in. And then you can choose from a wide variety of floor plans that fit the particular needs of your family, whether it’s a colonial style home, a patio home, a cape style home—or something else.

When it comes to your home, location really does matter. You should be able to choose where you want to live before building your dream home.  That’s just one of the reasons we say that we build dreams, but families live them!

Custom Homes In the Rochester Area: Where Do You Want to Live Your Dream?

Posted by John Graziose on Thu, Aug 29, 2013 @ 07:08 AM

Custom home in the Rochester area where do you want to live your dreamAt Gerber Homes we like to say that we build dreams, but families live them. Of course not every family has the same dream. And because so many families have so many different dreams we offer dozens of different floor plans. Whether your tastes and needs run toward Colonial, Ranch Homes, Patio Homes or Cape Homes, you can find what you’re looking for. And of course we think you should have a lot of flexibility within each style of home.

To get a sense of the great possibilities check out our many floor plans for yourself! You can search by style, number of square feet you want, number of bedrooms or even the number of bathrooms you think your dream home should have.

Of course there’s a lot more to living out your dream than simply the four walls that surround you. Even the best house won’t feel like home if it’s not in the location that’s right for you. And once again, it’s preposterous to think that everyone will want to live in the same neighborhood—or even the same town.

That’s why Gerber Homes builds all over the eastern Rochester area: in communities such as Webster, Canandaigua, Perinton, Wayne, Ontario and Cayuga. You can choose the location that best suits your choice of schools, your commute and your proximity to other things that are important to you. This variety also lets you choose the kind of environment that surrounds your home—whether it’s nearby open spaces, walking trails, lake views, rolling hills or easy access to golf. Take a look at the communities where we build to see what we mean.

And if your dream is to build on vacant land that’s not developed, we can help there as well. You can do a property search by zip code, street address or MLS number.

What makes a home your dream home? That’s for you to decide. Our job is to help you find it and build it so that you can live your dream!
