3 Myths About the 2021 Real Estate Market

The real estate market has been heating up this year, with home sellers eager to move and home buyers itching to find their dream homes. The market’s robust activity has given rise to a few myths about what home sellers and buyers can expect. Whether you’re worried about pricing your old home to sell or scheduling an inspection of a home you’re thinking of buying, you’ll want to get the truth behind these common myths.

Myth: When selling your old home, it’s best to price as high as possible.

One of the biggest mistakes homebuyers make is pricing their old home too high. Yes, you’ll want to get top dollar for your property, but if you set the price too high, you’ll scare off a slew of potential buyers. Plus, if you price your home above its market value, it will likely stay on the market for a long time. This can interfere with your plans to move into a new home. It’s always a good idea to talk to a licensed real estate agent about the value of your home and a strong asking point. Remember that there’s a good chance you’ll end up getting more than your asking price. If your home is in great condition, buyers may engage in a bidding war for it.

Myth: Renovating your old home is crucial before putting it on the market.

This myth is partially true and partially false. The truth is that it depends on your home. If your home is relatively updated, you might not need to make many changes beyond painting the walls in neutral colors or installing new carpeting. If your home is older, however, some renovations can go a long way toward attracting buyers and getting top dollar. Realtors generally recommend putting the most money in the kitchen and the bathrooms, as updated kitchens and bathrooms are highly attractive to home buyers.

Myth: Home buyers cannot tour new homes in person because of the pandemic.

Since early 2020 when many businesses temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, homebuyers have largely been shopping for houses online. Online listings can only tell you so much, however, even if they feature a video tour of the home. Fortunately, with the availability of vaccines and loosening of restrictions, it’s now possible to view potential homes in person.

If you’re planning to move to a new area entirely, such as from New York to Delaware, it’s still a good idea to check out new homes online first. Use the online information to narrow down your list, and then schedule viewings in person for a time when you plan to be in the area. Don’t forget when viewing new homes that you’ll also want to check out the local amenities, such as shops, dining, nightlife, and cultural or historical attractions.

Why Townhomes Are So Big Right Now

Townhomes represent the fastest-growing segment of the new construction market, accounting for 14% of new homes built in 2018. Homebuyers appreciate the open layouts, proximity to amenities, balance between community and privacy, and affordability townhomes offer.

Layout

When you choose a luxury, new-construction townhome from Montchanin Builders at their master-planned community of Darley Green, you can enjoy desirable features such as:

  • Spacious open floor plans
  • Flexible floor plans with options for libraries or recreation rooms
  • Gourmet kitchens with breakfast nooks
  • Walk-in closets
  • A combination of full and half-baths

Find townhomes with up to 2,500 square feet of living space and one to two-car garages. At Darley Green, the “wow factor” is real, and you’ll truly be impressed with the luxurious detailing of these high-end homes.

Proximity

Many homebuyers choose townhomes due to their proximity to:

  • Employers
  • Retail shopping
  • Entertainment
  • Public transportation

The close proximity to neighbors promotes a small-town feeling and a sense of community. At Darley Green, you can live, work, and play all in one space, as restaurants, shops, outdoor recreation, and public transportation are all within walking distance.

Balance

Townhomes offer privacy and are conducive to social distancing in the COVID-19 era.

  • Private entrances – decrease the amount of contact with others during social distancing periods.
  • Green spaces – walkable communities provide safe open-air access to mood-boosting greenery.
  • Multi-floor living – with up to four floors of living space, multiple family members can work or learn from home without interruption.

These and other community-oriented perks add to the value of the townhome lifestyle. In short, buyers love the balance; townhomes offer a suburban feel with more walkability.

Affordability

Townhomes offer space, convenience, and luxury – while being more affordable on average than detached single-family residences. Affordability appeals to all homebuyers, whether they are purchasing a first home, moving for a shorter commute, or downsizing. For many, townhomes offer a path to homeownership in a desirable neighborhood without an exorbitant price tag.

5 Fun and Safe Ideas for Halloween 2020

Halloween is right around the corner, and this year’s celebrations may need to be more creative than they’ve ever been before. Because of the pandemic, trick or treating, haunted houses, and holiday parties may not be on the agenda this year. Fortunately, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the spookiest day of the year while staying safe.

Here are some tips for celebrating Halloween in 2020:

Make a Front-Yard Pumpkin Display

One of the great things about Halloween is that it’s easy to participate in many of the holiday’s most beloved activities even if you’re staying in. Carving jack-o’-lanterns is something that people of all ages can enjoy, and 2020 is the perfect time to create a truly memorable pumpkin display for your front porch. You might carve an entire family of pumpkins, each with its own unique face and personality.

Have a Virtual Party

While in-person costume parties may not be feasible this year, virtual parties are! Thanks to Zoom and other video apps, you and your friends can dress up and impress each other with your costumes without ever leaving your homes. Since you won’t have to worry about walking or driving, this could be the year to indulge and create a more elaborate costume than usual.

Host a Candy Scavenger Hunt

If you have children to entertain, then having a scavenger hunt for candy—either in your backyard or your home—can be a fun substitute for trick or treating. Buy as many types of candy as possible, then give yourself at least an hour to hide them in different spots. If you use the backyard, make sure that you do a quick inspection after the hunt so you can be sure that you’ve found all of the candy!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

If there is a pumpkin patch in your area that is following proper safety procedures, including social distancing, then visiting it to pick out pumpkins can be a fun and relatively safe outdoor activity. Make sure to bring hand sanitizer and to use it before and after touching the pumpkins, and wear masks whenever you are around others. Keep in mind that costume masks should not be used instead of proper face masks and that the two should not be worn together.

Try One-Way Trick or Treating

Another alternative to traditional trick or treating is one-way trick-or-treating, in which you put treats in individually wrapped bags and put them in a safe place for others to pick up. If you decide to do this, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before handling the treats.

Why Suburban Townhouses Are the New “It” Homes for Buyers

As homebuyers in 2020 adjust to the “new normal” of COVID-19 and social distancing, suburban townhouses are quickly becoming the market’s new highly-prized “it” homes. The suburbs provide an attractive alternative to more densely populated urban areas, where transmission risks tend to be higher, and social distancing measures may be stricter. New-construction townhomes in the suburbs are convenient and generally give you more bang for your buck than single-family homes, offering spacious open-floor plans that allow for social distancing in the home. And when you purchase a townhouse at one of Montchanin Builders’ walkable communities near Wilmington, DE, you get the best of both worlds – close proximity to all that city life has to offer, including plentiful shopping and dining options, while at the same time surrounding yourself with safe, open green spaces.

Our Townhouses Offer Safety and Security

As the pandemic continues, homebuyers are prioritizing health and wellness like never before. That’s one of the reasons why Delaware townhouses are so appealing. While life in high-density urban areas can make it challenging to effectively social distance from others, the townhouse lifestyle is geared toward openness and spaciousness. Instead of living in cramped, close quarters, you will enjoy plenty of safe living space in your new home and the ability to easily and appropriately socially distance from your neighbors when necessary.

Our Townhouses Provide a Gorgeous Setting

It’s only natural to want to live in a beautiful neighborhood, and the retreat from urban life offered by our townhouses allows you to do precisely that. As many homebuyers have already discovered for themselves, our townhouses are beautiful, well-designed homes nestled in peaceful communities with plenty of trees. If you’re eager to surround yourself with open green spaces, then one of our new construction homes could be the perfect option for you.

Our Townhouses Are Conveniently Located

If you’re thinking of moving away from an urban area, then you might be wondering how much more driving you will have to do as a consequence. One of the great benefits of the suburban townhouses offered by Montchanin Builders is their convenient location. These new construction homes are located close to Wilmington, Delaware, which means that you’ll easily be able to access grocery stores and other essential amenities.

Why Walkable Communities Are Attracting Homebuyers During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of daily life, including how we conduct business, how we obtain goods and services, and even where we choose to live. There has been a surge of interest in walkable communities set in suburban locations as home buyers seek to escape urban centers characterized by high population density. Moving to a walkable community is certainly a smart choice during a pandemic, but it’s also one that makes sense in the long run. Even after life gradually returns to normal, homebuyers can continue to reap the rewards of life in a walkable community.

Health and safety considerations

It’s likely that the number one reason for the rising interest in suburban areas and walkable communities is health and safety considerations. During the coronavirus pandemic, it’s essential to maintain a safe distance between yourself and non-household members. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to do this in an urban area. Those who live in apartment buildings, for example, will inevitably come near people in common areas like the elevator, entrance, and laundry facility. In contrast, a walkable community offers plenty of space for all residents, enabling them to safely maintain distance.

Amenities within easy reach

Another major reason why homebuyers are looking to walkable communities during the pandemic is the availability of a wide variety of amenities within a short distance. Although the population density in these areas is much lower, there are still plenty of local amenities nearby. Some walkable communities are located close to libraries, restaurants, grocery stores, and other shops, for instance.

In addition, since a lower population density generally equals a lower volume of COVID cases, there is a reduced likelihood of exposure when residents do go out for essentials. Local shopping centers, for example, are likely to be less crowded than in the cities.

Wide-open, green spaces

Now that the pandemic has forced most entertainment venues to close their doors, people are enjoying the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air. Of course, it’s easier to find wide open, green spaces in a walkable community than in a city. All you have to do is step outside your door to stroll along tree-lined streets, play catch in a neighborhood gathering area, or put walking and biking trails to good use. As an added bonus, some walkable communities are located near parks.

Explore the walkable communities of Wilmington, Delaware

If you’re ready to trade in urban density for spacious living in a walkable community, it’s time to take a closer look at the new construction homes in New Castle County, Delaware. Montchanin Builders is the area’s foremost walkable community planner and homebuilder.

Townhome Living: 3 Advantages of a Low-Maintenance Lifestyle

When you picture yourself in your own home, what do you see? Kids playing in the yard? Waving to the neighbors as you pull in the driveway? Hosting fabulous dinner parties for friends and family? Chances are, you aren’t picturing the less glamorous side of homeownership: Maintenance and upkeep. As rewarding as it is to own your own home, it’s also a lot of hard work. There’s snow to shovel in the winter, grass to cut in the summer, and leaves to rake in the fall. The never-ending maintenance tasks associated with homeownership is just one of the many reasons why so many people are choosing to purchase new homes in Delaware townhome communities. Here’s a look at some of the benefits you can look forward to with townhome living.

Save your back from shoveling snow and raking leaves

There’s nothing wrong with a little manual labor once in a while. In fact, if you have an office job that requires you to stare at a computer all day, you might catch yourself fantasizing about spending a day gardening or refurbishing a deck. But when you get down to the business of raking leaves and shoveling snow, you’ll quickly realize that there’s a good reason why a maintenance-free lifestyle is appealing. So, banish those callouses and backaches, because townhome living includes exterior maintenance! At Montchanin Builders’ planned community, Darley Green, you’ll never have to worry about shoveling snow or raking leaves.

There’s no need to look for reliable maintenance help

If you’ve ever had to hire a landscaper or a similar contractor, then you know how nerve-wracking the process can be. Should you do a background check? How exactly does one go about doing a background check? What if the contractor doesn’t finish the job? And what options do you have if the landscaper mows over your prized begonias or the plow operator scratches your car?

With low maintenance townhome living in a community like Darley Green or The Overlook at Rockford Falls, there’s no need to worry about finding reliable maintenance help—it’s all taken care of for you.

A world of opportunities… right at your fingertips

Delaware townhome communities are your chance to experience the good life. You’ll have incredible neighborhood amenities within walking distance. Enjoy the wide-open spaces, walking trails, and neighborhood gathering areas. Walk over to a local shop or restaurant. Get in better shape with help from the beautiful jogging paths. The possibilities are virtually limitless.

Game night

Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition, especially when there are delicious appetizers involved?

Themed party

Let your creativity shine with a themed party that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Whether you choose a Mardi Gras celebration or a 70’s disco night, you can ramp up the fun with curated music, cute invitations, décor and costumes as well.

Cool menu ideas

  • A gourmet table-length deli sandwich
  • Sparkling champagne in party cups
  • Trays of finger foods like chicken and veggie skewers, sushi wraps and artichoke dip with crackers
  • An outdoor BBQ with grilled corn on the cob, veggie burgers and bratwurst
  • If the weather is chilly, make a giant pot of hearty stew or chili accompanied by French bread

What to Know Before Buying a Townhome

Townhomes are an increasingly popular option for homeowners, particularly those who are purchasing their first home. This is because, while townhomes are more affordable than single family homes, they offer the same lifestyle perks. Plus, they tend to have generous square footage for home buyers who are interested in growing their family. In particular, the expert home builders in Delaware with Montchanin Builders is known for designing spacious and beautiful Delaware townhomes that are perfectly suited to young couples and retirees alike.

Consider the architectural possibilities

Not all townhouses look alike from the outside. You have lots of options to consider, from stacked townhouses with two to three stories, to twin homes, to manor townhouses. Stacked townhomes are what you would think of as a traditional townhouse, including a one-car garage. Twin homes are two townhomes positioned together. These offer the option of a two-car garage.

If you’re looking for something a little different, consider purchasing a manor townhome. Manor townhomes are the height of upscale luxury. The Monroe, The Montgomery, and The Maxwell offered by Montchanin Builders are manor townhomes with unique architectural features on the exterior. Inside, you’ll find up to 2,500 square feet of finished living space, with 9’ ceilings and a gourmet kitchen.

Explore your options for personalization

Every home should be personalized to suit its owners’ unique style preferences. No matter which architectural style you choose, you’ll have the option to customize your new townhome. Choose from stainless kitchen appliances, granite countertops in your choice of colors, recessed lighting, and upgraded kitchen cabinets with designer hardware. You can also choose your own flooring, including hardwood or ceramic tile.

Make your budget work for you

One of the reasons why townhomes are such a popular investment is that they are typically thousands of dollars less than single family homes. But unlike an apartment or condo, you’ll own the land you live on. Treat yourself to some new furnishings, but don’t buy everything until after you’ve moved in. You should have the essentials, of course, like the beds, mattresses, table, and seating options. But wait to go to the furniture store until after you get a better sense of your ideal furniture layout. Take measurements and do plenty of online window shopping so you can get your new townhouse looking exactly how you want it.

Is Buying a Townhouse a Good Choice?

The decision to purchase a home is one of the most important ones you’ll make. Naturally, you’ll want to carefully consider the pros and cons of each possibility. Before you settle on buying a home, you should consider the compelling advantages of townhouse living. You will find several great choices for a townhome for sale near you expertly designed by veteran home builders in Delaware, particularly when you take advantage of the beautiful homes built by Montchanin Builders. Here’s a quick look at just a few of the benefits of buying a townhouse for your family.

The perfect marriage of convenience and luxury

Many people crave the conveniences and excitement of city life, but still want a private, secluded sanctuary to relax in at the end of the day. Townhomes are a unique living arrangement that bring together the best of both worlds. They are popular in urban settings, but reminiscent of private country life.

You’ll also be a short drive (or walk!) away from the incredible amenities of a happening city. Wilmington, Delaware, for example, offers a wide assortment of fine dining, casual, and family restaurants. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors at the nearby nature trails, parks, and golf courses. You’ll also have quick access to local sports teams, including the Blue Rocks minor league baseball team and the 87ers basketball team.

Townhome owners tend to have lower ongoing expenses

Another reason why Delaware townhomes make great investments is the ongoing financial advantages. Not only is the cost to purchase a townhome quite affordable, but they cost far less to maintain than other choices. Living in a townhome within a planned community eliminates many typical maintenance requirements of most other homes. Plus, since the shared walls minimize heat transfer, townhouses cost less to heat in the winter and cool in the summer.

Finding the perfect townhouse for your family

Townhomes for sale in Delaware are a great investment opportunity for singles, couples, and families, particularly when you have the opportunity to purchase brand new construction at an affordable price. Montchanin Builders has partnered with Supreme Lending—a highly respected mortgage company—to provide custom financing options for our homeowners. You can get pre-approved today!
