When is Building the Right Choice?

building or buying an existing house

When Steve and Mary first came to us to help them find a condominium, we were excited to begin the search. They were looking to downsize and simplify their lives through what condo living provides. We brought them through many homes, but none of them felt quite right for them. They didn’t love the idea of sharing a wall with their neighbors, and they wanted a newer feel and upgraded look. Privacy was also very important to them.

While building instead of buying used was not their initial plan, they discovered it might be the best option for them.

  • It fit with their timeline for when they wanted to sell their current home,
  • they would be able to be involved throughout the whole process and make it their own,
  • and they could choose their desired lot and location.

West Port Village was their first choice due to location and offering custom free-standing condos. We narrowed down the available lots in West Port Village by what would give them the most privacy and the best natural light. They chose a big lot, suitable for any plan West Port Village offered. The lot backed up to large pine trees, giving the privacy that was so important to them after coming from a 10-acre property.

Next up was floor plan selection. WPV offers multiple floor plan options with the flexibility to modify them to each homeowner’s needs and wants. Steve and Mary sat down with the builder to determine the best plan for them and their desired modifications.

They are so excited to have a place that checks every box on their list, and we are happy we could help them find that!
