Why Choose Ashfield for a New Home

Knowing the Financials of a New Home

Ashfield continues to grow steadily as the Leigh Valley expands outward and more people move west from the overcrowded regions along the east coast. This has put pressure on the stock of existing housing but presents a golden investment opportunity for buyers of new construction homes. If you are looking to build an affordable dream home in a stunningly scenic region with easy access to two major cities, Carbon County may be the perfect location for you.

A Taxing Issue

One thing to consider when planning new home construction in Ashfield, and really anywhere, is not only the cost of building the house, but the longer term property tax burden that you will incur. Carbon County’s tax rates are comfortably in the lower middle between the most expensive and least expensive counties for property taxes in Pennsylvania. A lower yearly property tax obligation can make it possible to build more house than elsewhere in Pennsylvania and still keep costs within your budget.

Lots of Choices

You may prefer a house in the woods in Ashfield with lots of privacy and seclusion. On the other hand, if you have a growing family you may want to live in a community development with other young families and children. Some developments feature convenient community recreation facilities. Developments can be gated, if security is one of your concerns. Some include trash and snow removal which are charged as a portion of annual home owner dues. If these are amenities you are looking for, make sure the dues are reasonable for the provided services.

Although Future Homes is aware of local building codes, some small housing developments often will add property deed restrictions on the type or size of home you can build. Other codicils could dictate where you can park your car, how you can put out trash, the building and location of decks or pools and countless other conditions. This is a detail of house planning that should be investigated thoroughly and not be taken lightly. Your experienced building contractor can be of immense value and save you many headaches or expensive missteps.
