One Key Factor To Remember When Purchasing a Home…

Posted by on Aug 28, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on One Key Factor To Remember When Purchasing a Home…

–> Maintenance! When buying a home it is important not to forget about the time and labor that home ownership requires. Just like regular oil changes for your car to keep your engine happy and healthy, keeping up with regular home maintenance tasks will keep you from future headaches and wasted money.

–> It can be intimidating to think about these various tasks, especially if you’re a new homeowner. It’s a long list — there’s no denying that. The good news is that you can do the majority of it on your own without much experience.

–> Do a visual walk through around your house to look for any abnormalities. Look for any areas that could be leaking, change the filters on your furnace, when the seasons are changing make sure hoses are turned off and that downspouts are in their proper places, check your overhead door occasionally for strange sounds..

*** If you would like more information on Home Maintenance you can contact Scott at Scott@kresthomes.ca.

Let’s Discuss Cost per Square Foot for New Construction…

Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 in 2 Storey, Bi-Level, Blog | Comments Off on Let’s Discuss Cost per Square Foot for New Construction…

** In your early planning, you will want to know what your new house is going to cost. We have a lot of people contact us in regards to cost per square foot when building a new home.

** This is important information to know since the cost of your project will certainly affect your decisions while creating the design and be a huge factor in determining what is going to work best for you and your family.

–> One of the main factors is always Design. It is effected by a multitude of things. Some examples include, how many windows you choose, the finishing details you select and open area to below.

–> Another area that affects this is the home style you choose. A two storey vs. a bungalow will vary. A bungalow will cost more for foundation and has a larger span of square footage.

** Visit our Show Home at 9 Larratt Close, Red Deer to chat in person with Scott about this or any questions you may have.
