Benefits of buying early in a new community

When looking to develop a new community, home builders put a substantial amount of time, effort and resources into creating a neighborhood that homeowners would be proud to live in. Being one of the first buyers in a brand new community by a trusted builder comes with incentives and benefits that are hard to beat. 

Bishard Homes has spent the past 20 years developing a strong reputation in Virginia Beach, and now Chesapeake, for creating quality homes and bettering the areas we build in. With one new community preselling soon and another on the horizon, we’ve detailed some of the benefits you’ll experience by buying into our communities early. 

Get a better deal 

Buying a home is a huge investment, and many people are under the impression that buying new construction will cost them even more—which isn’t necessarily the case. Bishard Homes is committed to value, and you’ll never get a better value on one of our homes than when you buy in the early stages of a new community. 

One major cost-savings opportunity is exclusive, presale promotions when you join the VIP list for your desired community. VIP lists offer exclusive access to floor plans, models, features, construction updates and special offers. Subscribers for The Reserve at Grassfield Commons, for example, are also receiving a $1,000 coupon toward upgrades in their new townhome. 

In addition to presale promotions, buying early means your home’s resale value begins growing immediately—giving you a leg up on other homes in the community when the time comes for you to move into your next Bishard home.  

Secure your first-pick home 

Aside from saving a substantial amount of money, the biggest reason prospective buyers should jump at the chance to be first in a community is having first pick of the inventory. While we love every floor plan and feature we put into our homes, we understand that preferences are unique to each homeowner. With a wider variety of options and homesites, it’ll be easier to find the perfect home to meet your needs and wants. This also gives buyers the opportunity to select a home that’s closer or further to a community’s entrance or amenities. 

Early buyers for The Reserve at Grassfield will have first access to contract-signing appointments after the Grand Opening event, meaning they can secure their ideal spot in the community quickly and pick from eight distinct, expertly designed floor plans. 

Choose your preferred exteriors

Lastly, those who choose to buy into a new community early are more likely to get their exact preferences on exterior elevations, colors and architectural features. Bishard Homes has always placed an emphasis on designing homes that complement the surrounding area, and our first-ever community in Chesapeake is no different. By coupling the Nantucket-inspired architecture that’s become a mainstay in Virginia Beach with the charming, neo-traditional style that’s known and loved in Chesapeake, we’ve created a distinct—yet classic—style of townhome sure to wow residents and visitors alike. 

Be a part of something new  

After twenty years of developing sought-after communities in Virginia Beach, Bishard Homes wanted to bring our quality craftsmanship, stunning features and regional design to Chesapeake. As an early buyer, you’ll be on the ground floor of our venture into a new town, and get to be a part of what makes our communities so great—friendly, caring and welcoming neighbors who love the homes they live in.
