Many people think new homes can only be built during the summer.  You know, after the snow has melted and the ground has dried.  After all, who ever heard about a home being built during a snowstorm?

Times have changed.  With the new tools, materials, and technologies available, Gerber Homes of Rochester NYcan be seen building a new home year around.  Actually, except for just a few days of extreme blizzards or deep cold, homes are being built.

Visitors often walk into one of Gerber Homes’ model homes planning to build,  and fall in love with the model!  So, what are the advantages of purchasing a model home?

First, your home is move-in-ready.  The hardwood flooring is in place, the grass already growing.

But there’s more.  Luxury items are added to these model homes.  Those beautiful touches such as granite counter tops, a Bonus Room,  or finished basement. Upgrades, galore.

Plus, Gerber Homes has a team of professional decorators that specialize in color schemes and lighting.  A huge advantage over purchasing an older existing home and doing it yourself.

With Gerber Homes, you know your home is Energy Star efficient, and built with “green” practices.  This means lower energy costs and state-of-the-art methods to reduce footprints.

Perhaps the only disadvantage of purchasing a model home is flexibility.  Moving walls is more difficult in a model home, not impossible, but more difficult.  So if your family could benefit from a tailor made home, remember, Gerber Homes builds year around.
