Get In On the Ground Floor: Philly’s Hottest New Constructions (Part 2)

We said it last time and we’ll say it again. The market for brand new construction is hot! As it turns out, there’s a growing number of buyers who are drawn to more modern and sleek features over original and charming details. Instead of older, traditional features, this buyer may be looking for the home to be energy efficient, saving them from green guilt and from spending more. In fact, a recent National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) study found that older homes (constructed prior to 1960) can expect maintenance costs of up to $564 a year, while homes constructed after 2008 averaged only $241 annually.

So what does a typical newly constructed home feature? We have 5 fabulous listings that are perfect examples.
