Just recently, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reported an interesting trend with Millennial homebuyers on their Eye on Housing blog.  The findings show that more and more of Generation Y are migrating to suburbs that feature single-family homes, opposite from the general belief that this demographic seeks more urban-centric dwellings.

The reporting was provided by the 2015 International Builders’ Show, stating that a whopping 75% of Millennial buyers prefer single-family homes to multi-family housing.  Additionally, 66% prefer to live in the suburbs, while 24% would opt for more rural areas.

For Millennial buyers, major selling points for a new home include a room exclusive for laundry, energy-efficient appliances and various storage options within the home, like extra closets and garage space. NAHB also states that communities that feature park areas and open space, walking trails, a playground and an outdoor swimming pool continue to attract more of this generation.

Fortunately for Generation Y, all of these qualities that pique their interest are present in our The Chase community!  The Chase is located in Charles Town, West Virginia, providing homeowners with a taste of the thriving suburbs along with the rural serenity of the countryside.  We offer six incredible single-family home designs, giving homebuyers the luxury of a diverse selection of newly built houses.

The The Chase community also provides an array of amenities including a community center with pool, miles of trails, a playground and over 60 acres of parks and open space.  In the future, the community also plans to incorporate on-site commercial and retail spaces, adding to the convenience of living at The Chase.

Van Metre Homes is known for building homes that go above and beyond what other builders can provide.  What’s considered ‘standard’ in one of our new homes typically costs extra for other home builders – hardwood flooring, granite countertops, energy efficient appliances, walk-in closets, added storage space and so much more make up the Van Metre Homes difference!

When Millennials search for their new home in Charles Town WV, they’ll find everything they desire in our The Chase community!
