Why Rochester-Area Model Homes Make Sense

Why Rochester area model homes make senseIf you’ve been considering building a new home in Canadaigua, Ontario, Webster or Perinton, you may not have given much thought to purchasing a model home. But here are three compelling reasons you may want to think about before scratching that idea off of your list.

1. You hate to wait: Building a new home can be an exciting adventure, but it’s not something that happens overnight. There is a lot of thought, research and planning that goes into building a new home. And that all happens before the hole for the foundation is excavated. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to wait, that might not sit well with you. And sometimes it’s not even a matter of wanting to wait. Maybe your living situation changed suddenly and you no longer have the luxury of waiting to build your new home. What if you need to move now? Model homes are often ready immediately—or on very short notice. That takes some of the pressure of waiting away.

2. Upgrades are us: When builders create a model home they want to use it as a showcase for what they can do. The result is that many model homes have upgraded features in them that show off a builder’s expertise. And usually the finish materials are upgraded as well because they show better. What that means is that you can get more “bang for your buck” with a model home because you’ll pick up these upgrades at bargain prices.

3. What you see is what you get: Not everybody enjoys looking at floor plans and schematics to see what their future home is going to look like.  As a matter of fact, some people really struggle to envision what the finished product is going to look like. If that describes you, a model home may be a big help. You don’t have to imagine what it will look like when it’s finished—you can walk through it right now. And for a lot of people that means peace of mind.

With those three things in mind, here are four more reasons you might want to consider a model home: 

  • 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, 1,600 square foot home in Canadaigua 
  • 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, 2,426 square foot home in Ontario 
  • 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, 1,707 square foot home in Webster 
  • 4 Bedroom/3 Bathroom, 2,395 square foot home in Perinton

Finding Your Rochester-Area Home: What If You Don’t Want To Wait?

Posted by John Graziose on Thu, Jun 6, 2013 @ 07:06 AM

Finding your Rochester area home what if you don't want to waitThe reports you’ve been hearing about the rebounding homebuilding market are true. And while that’s good news for the economy, it may not be what you want to hear if you’re looking for a new home in Canandaigua, Webster, Ontario or elsewhere in the Rochester area—particularly if you’re a person who doesn’t like to wait. That’s because increased demand for new homes can mean homeowners have to wait longer before they can move into a new home.

Some people don’t mind that—and their situation allows them to take their time. Others need to move a little more quickly. So if you’re somewhat short on time, does that mean you have to settle for less than what you want?

Not necessarily! The good news is that at Gerber Homes, we’ve got some great model homes that are ready now. If waiting isn’t your idea of a good time, we invite you to check out our selection of model homes in the greater Rochester area.  You can peruse the list of what’s available, get details and even take a virtual tour without having to leave your chair. You can even download a brochure with all the features of the home to review at your leisure.

Why consider owning a model home? For one thing, you don’t have to wait for it to be built. It’s ready for move in now. Beyond that, you’ll be able to see exactly what you’re getting. Not everybody enjoys looking at floor plans and then imagining what the final product will look like. With a model home, what you see is what you get.

The other enticing thing about model homes is that we builders like to use them to show off (just a little bit). That means you have a pretty good chance of landing a home that has some built-in flourishes and upgrades.

So if you love the idea of a new home in the Rochester area—but hate to wait—you may want to think seriously about the possibilities that a model home offers.
