What Design Should You Use for Your Rochester Area New Home?

ny custom homes design june1If you’re thinking about building a home in the Rochester area one of the first things you’ll need is a plan for the builder to use. We’re not just talking about a rough sketch of what you’d like the home to look like. We’re talking about specific plans that the builder can use to actually build your home.                 

When it comes time to build, should you use a ready-made plan or a custom design? That depends on what you need—and can afford. If you have a good sized lot that doesn’t have restrictive setbacks, finding and buying a ready-made plan may work well for you. Ready-made plans are generally designed with specific lot sizes in mind. If the lot you’re building on is long and narrow and your plan is for a lot that is wide and shallow, that could present problems.

Some builders offer a complete design/build package. They evaluate the shape and size of the lot and create a design that coordinates those things with the homeowners’ needs and wants. It doesn’t necessarily cost more to create the design this way. And sometimes the builder can even discover cost savings over a ready-made plan that requires major modification.

Some builders will only build with plans that they provide. That’s important to remember when you’re considering which contractor will build your home. At Gerber Homes, we can provide plans for you—or we can build with your plans.

Whether you’re looking for Colonial, Patio Home, Ranch, Cape, or something else, chances are, we’ve got something that will work for you! Take a look for yourself.  Your plan or ours—we’ll help make your dream home a reality.

Free Rent While You Build Your New Home

building a new home Rochester NY 150x150Gerber Homes is offering an amazing deal. Free rent while you build your new home.

This is an unheard of offer, and we’re not sure how long it will last, but it’s too good to pass up.

Building and moving always seem to be a timing game.

In many ways, you have more control over the timing when you build a new home, than moving into an existing home.  With an existing home, you’re at the mercy of the other owner.  They don’t want to move until their home is ready.  Meanwhile, the new owners of your home want you out.

This often leaves families scrambling, or renting back a home they have owned for years.  Many families don’t have a choice, and rent an apartment until they can move into their new home.  This wait can take months, and eat into money set aside for appliances or new carpeting.

It’s easier when you build a new home.  Or at least it is with Gerber Homes. Gerber Homes has built home for 60 years. They know exactly how long it will take to finish your new home.  This gives you time to plan.

But sometimes the buyers of your existing home are pushing you to move out.  Gerber Homes has you covered.  They will let you live in one of their beautiful apartments, RENT FREE until your new home is finished.  RENT FREE.

Say it after me… No rent.  Beautiful apartment.  Peace of mind.  FREE.

Now, just as a disclaimer:  This offer is valid as long as an apartment is available.  But don’t worry, Gerber Homes has many.
