April is New Homes Month


As the housing market continues to improve, more families are taking advantage of competitive home prices and low interest rates to find their perfect newly-constructed home. To highlight the advantages of purchasing a new home, the NAHB, along with local Home Builders Associations use April as New Homes Month.

As statistics show, the time has never been better to build a new home. Some of the benefits that accompany a new home include features designed for a modern lifestyle, construction that meets the newest safety standards, and wiring systems that can handle modern high-tech appliances. In addition, there is a large selection of homes to choose from and mortgage interest rates are at near-record lows.

The Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association will be promoting New Homes Month by highlighting trends for new homes in 2014, providing settlement terms to know when purchasing your new home, offering information on the growing trend of eco-friendly homes, and much more. To view the latest new home trends in the Wilmington area, visit the homes in the 28th annual Parade of Homes that feature over 70 of the region’s top new homes on the weekends of April 26 & 27 and May 3 & 4.

To follow WCFHBA’s promotions of New Homes Month, check the website, Facebook, and Twitter pages daily for new home facts and updates. We will also be using the hashtag #WilmNewHomes to further publicize the month.
