Why buy new? Well, you’ll be the FIRST to live in a home that joins impressive design, low-maintenance architecture and the latest technology all under one roof. Make buying a home easier and see why you should buy a brand-new home below.
1. Ready, set, personalize.
Choose your structural choices—like additional bedrooms, home offices, dens, extended patios, and basements. Then make the design choices (from cabinets and appliances to flooring and spa-inspired bathrooms) that will make your home truly your own.
2. The latest design innovations are all yours.
Instead of undergoing a costly remodel to bring an old house up to date, get the bells and whistles you want right now—and feel like you’re living inside your favorite architectural magazine. For example: sliding walls of glass, spacious open layouts, streamlined fixtures and finishes, large kitchen islands, lighter color palettes on cabinets and floors, and enviable storage.
3. A new home warranty helps you rest easy.
Purchasing a new home is a big decision—but it doesn’t have to feel like a risk. Feel confident that it's constructed with top-notch materials and superior craftsmanship backed by a new home warranty.
4. Energy efficiency has never looked this good.
New and innovative ways to help protect our environment and your wallet are being developed every day. Ask our builders about what energy-savings technologies are available in their home plans.
5. No more worrying about endless repairs.
Whether you rent or own an older house, behind-the-times architecture can lead to a high-maintenance way of life. With a new home, cutting-edge design and building materials offer worry-free comfort—so you have more time to enjoy your low-maintenance new home.
6. You can live smart.
Make your every day easier. From Amazon Echo to Google Home, you could integrate new technology into your home. Control your climate, your appliances, and more from your smart phone—or with your voice.
7. You’re the first to live here.
A new home = your dream design, layout, and choices based upon your family's needs. A resale home = someone else’s.
8. It costs less than you think!
Prices for new homes are comparable to those of resale homes. So…what are you waiting for?
We moved to Tehaleh in October 2014 and were the first house on the street. We spend a lot of time reading—we're both voracious readers and can go through five or six books a week! We also collect artwork—we like to support indigenous women artists. And we love our animals. We own adopted cats and dogs, and frequently take the dogs to Tehaleh's off-leash dog park. We meet a lot of people at the park and the dogs absolutely love it there.
We moved to Tehaleh in August, and it was the best part of 2020. We were drawn to the neighborhood by the views and trails, and it seemed like a good community to raise a family in, including our dog Astra. Our favorite park is Hounds Hollow, where Astra can play all day. Now, every time we come down the road and see the mountain, it reminds us that it's a nice place to come home to.
Tehaleh just felt different; it felt more friendly. A lot of people interact here. The first time my boyfriend and I came here actually, almost everyone we came across spoke to us—it was a friendly, embracing environment. Also—this view! And the café was one of the winners for me—as a resident, I love grabbing coffee, walking on the trails, enjoying the mountain view and taking pictures.
The experience of building our home from the ground up was so special. This is our first home, so we got to pick out everything we wanted. Plus, we have Mt. Rainier right outside our door. A dream come true!
We moved here from Kansas City and it was quick—our HC Homes house was finished on January 6 and we arrived in Tehaleh on the 8th. My mom and grandma live with us and they have their own comfortable space. It's rare to find a house that accommodates those needs.
It feels like a retreat when you go home. When you drive up and see the mountain view; it’s amazing to know that this is home.
