Before making the decision to buy, people shopping for homes consider hundreds of factors. They include location of the house, the school district, size of the lot and also interior features. Most home-buyers insist on a home that grants most of their wishes, but shoppers may settle for a house without getting everything they want.

According to an article in USA Today;  “when it comes to certain interior features, many are willing to spend thousands of dollars above the price of the home to have them included. At least 60% of buyers said they would be willing to pay more for central air conditioning, new kitchen appliances and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom if they did not already have these features.”

The features homebuyers want include new kitchen appliances and many specify stainless steel.  Granite countertops and kitchen islands are also high on the list as well as eat-in kitchens or breakfast bars.  The Master Suites were high on the list with en-suite baths and walk-in closets with “his & hers” vanities being important for married couples.  Hardwood floors came in at number five with homebuyers being willing to pay 54% more.  Fireplaces made the list along with central air conditioners.

When searching for a new home, a new home is a great value with all of the “must-have” features already in place.  The great value along with exquisite detailing makes Kerley’s homes well-loved and sought after by homebuyers.  There are no plain Jane interiors just timeless and in-demand features. Love to come home to gorgeous molding, arched doorways, Judges panels, hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops plus much much more. [all options per plan]

Franklin Park at River Green has been extremely busy with no slow down during the winter months.  New construction is keeping the builders busy as potential homebuyers visit in droves!  New home sales at Franklin Park are very active and new townhomes will be ready to close in January.  You could wait but why?

Now is the time to put your dream home under contract and beat the early spring buyers.  The home inventory in Atlanta is still low compared with historic numbers and any new home that is nearing completion is sure to be claimed quickly.  This means you could want to move in the spring and have to wait till end of summer because you get caught waiting for your home to be started and built.

What makes Franklin Park at River Green such a fabulous community? 

This amazing new home community features a pool, tennis courts, soccer and clubhouse and lots of green spaces and pricing starts from the mid $100’s.

Ideally located in the Canton area, this established community is a favorite. “Where metro meets the mountains ” Moving at a big-city pace, Canton still embodies small town charm. Within 5 miles to I-575 allows easy access to all of Atlanta.
