But maybe you’ve noticed that time isn’t always on your side! Sometimes life has a way of sneaking up on us. It could be a new job or a job transfer.

Walk Through Our Homes!

Walk-through-our-homes.jpg When you’re looking for ideas for a new home, there are lots of great tools available to you. Online sites such as and have tons of wonderful ideas for creating the home of your dreams 

Another option is to look at floor plans of homes available in your area. If you have a sense for the style of home you want and a feel for the area size need, you can look at floor plans that show you a number of different layouts. You can get a general feel for how much space is available, how the rooms flow into one another, and what the overall design of the home is like. You can even use the measurements in the floor plans to see how well your existing furniture will fit (and where you may want to buy new pieces!). 

For a lot of people, however, nothing beats feet on the street. Maybe you’re the kind of person who doesn’t get a lot out of looking at drawings and pictures. You’d rather see for yourself—up close and personal in real life–what a home will really look like when it’s completed. 

You’re not alone. Not everybody gets the big picture from looking at blueprints or an architect’s drawings. The good news is that you don’t have to do that if it doesn’t work for you. If you’re interested in building a home in Webster, Canandaigua, Perinton or Ontario, you can check out model homes and do your own walk-through. You don’t have to imagine what it’s like to walk from the kitchen to the family room—you can do it yourself in a real house. If you’re wondering how big a dining room or bedroom is, you don’t have to pull out a tape measure—you can step into an actual room and know exactly how it feels.  

We have model homes available for your personal visit at: 

Simply “Click to Contact the Agent” beside the home you’d like to see and you can set up an appointment to look inside.  

If you’re not quite ready to drive out and walk through these homes, many of them offer you the opportunity to take a virtual tour from the comfort of your own computer, tablet or smart phone!  Just click on the blue “Virtual Tour” button next to the home you’d like to see.  

If floor plans don’t give you all the information you want, you can get a different view of potential homes—whether you prefer “feet on the street” or “eyes on the screen.” It’s a great way to check out homes you think might be a good fit for your family!

When Waiting to Build a New Home Isn’t In the Cards

Posted by John Graziose on Thu, Dec 10, 2015 @ 19:12 PM

When-waiting-to-build-isnt-in-the-cards.jpgIn an ideal world you’d never be rushed for time when you decide to build a new home in the eastern Rochester area. You’d have plenty of time to review plans gather design ideas for your perfect home.

Sometimes, however, life just doesn’t work out that way. Maybe that second child you were trying for is showing up a little earlier than you’d planned. Perhaps you’ve had a job or career change that requires you to move without a lot of notice. You could even be in a situation were a parent needs to move in with you. There could be any number of reasons why waiting to build a new home simply isn’t in the cards.

That doesn’t mean you have to settle for any old home. As a matter of fact, you may be able to get a home with more upgrades than you planned on—at a great price. How?

Purchasing a model home can be a great solution for families who don’t have the luxury of waiting to build a new home—but still want a brand new home of their own.

Builders build model homes to demonstrate the quality of their homes’ designs and to show off their craftsmanship. Beyond that, they provide prospective homebuyers with the ability to actually experience what a new home will look and feel like. As a result, these homes often have upgrades built in that would normally cost more than the basic plan.

At Gerber Homes, we have a number of models that are ready for immediate move in. You get the benefit of upgraded quality and great pricing—without having to wait for construction to be completed. Click here to check out our available models. You can also downoad brochures for any of these homes that will provide you with more details.

You never know what kind of hand life is going to deal you. If you’re in a situation where waiting to build a new home isn’t in the cards, the game isn’t over. A beautiful model home may just be your ace in the hole!
