This means items you feel are most important are more likely to be within your reach. For example, moving walls, bumping out windows or adding on space in key areas is simply not an option with existing homes.  With so many options, amenities and upgrades available today, however, it is easy to get carried away, and your budget right along with it!

Going in with a wish list helps you narrow down the “must haves” from the “nice to haves”, thereby helping you stay on budget and helping you create a home plan that best suits your family’s needs and desires. Here are a few of the features that should be on your wish list for your new home in Canton, MI.

Customized Kitchen and Bathrooms

There is a reason that kitchens and bathrooms add the greatest value to a home upon resale. And that is because now more than ever, people spend a greater amount of time using, lingering and luxuriating in these spaces. Because kitchens have always been a place where families gather and spend much of their time, they are one of the most important areas to customize.

Large kitchen islands with bar stools for doing homework or eating breakfast at, walk-in pantries with adaptable storage space, attractive state-of-the-art appliances, and beautiful tile back splashes are no longer the exception, but the norm in a new kitchen. And now, with increasingly popular open floor plans, having a beautiful as well as functional kitchen is more important than ever.

A spacious master bathroom with state-of-the-art amenities is another area where you won’t want to compromise. Make it a relaxing, calming haven where you will want to begin and end each day.

Choose a builder and a home plan that will allow you to customize the areas in your home that are most important to you.


Think about how your family uses your home. What rooms affect day to day quality of life? Which characteristics of your current home do you love, and which drive you nuts?

Choose a floor plan that best suits the way you live and the things you love about your home. Are high ceilings, an open floor plan, and lots of sun light important to you? Do you need a “flex room” so you can have that office or craft studio you’ve always wanted? How about creative storage options or a finished basement?

Having a wish list that contains what is most important to you will help you chose a builder that can turn your dream into a reality and keep you on budget!

Location, Location, Location

There’s a reason this phrase is as popular as it is. When buying a new home, location should always be a primary consideration.
