June Is National Homeownership Month & There’s No Better Time To Buy A New Home

June 25, 2020 | by Patty Lamothe

Home is now more important than ever, so why not celebrate National Homeownership Month in a new Brambleton or Birchwood at Brambleton home!

First-time homebuyer? Moving up? Down-sizing? Whatever your motivation may be, NOW is the time to act because 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages have hit record low rates. Freddie Mac has just announced that rates are now as low as 3.13% — some of the lowest in US history! Buying a new home may sound counter-intuitive right now with so much negative economic news these days, but a couple of factors make it easy to understand. In most parts of the country construction is still categorized as an essential industry, so new homes continue to be built. The Federal Reserve’s recent interest rate cuts have helped reduce mortgage rates to these history-making lows.

Why NOW Is The Right Time To Buy In Brambleton

Brambleton’s new homebuilders are still going strong, continually showcasing innovative new designs that offer plenty of space, easier maintenance, and unique features. Urban style townhomes and condominium homes are especially popular here because they offer a modern style and most are within walking distance of the stores, restaurants and events at Brambleton Town Center. That’s a great lifestyle combination for any buyer, but especially for younger, first-time buyers or for mature buyers who are down-sizing after raising their families, in favor of a more urban way of living. And, of course, Brambleton’s builders still offer plenty of traditional townhome and single-family home neighborhoods for those looking to up-size, or for growing families. Builders help make the buying process easy here, too. Many offer services like virtual home tours to make comparison shopping simple and convenient.

Aside from the new homes themselves, Brambleton offers the amenities and character fitting the more active, engaged lifestyle that people now seek.

Farmers Market

It’s in a convenient suburban setting, but it’s anything but typical suburbia. Everything is integrated, and walkability is a top priority. As noted earlier, the bustling Town Center’s shops, restaurants, cafes, fitness, salons, and even physicians’ and dentists’ offices, are steps from home.

The focus on urban-inspired homes goes beyond the homes themselves – although features like rooftop decks, outdoor living spaces and available smart home technology are big draws. Brambleton’s shared spaces are woven into the urban-influenced design, for more ways to get to know neighbors and a much more energetic vibe than suburban settings of a generation ago.

Nature and recreation are intertwined with the urban sensibility, too. Open green space, miles of trails, inviting parks and great pools are just as close to new homes as the city-inspired amenities.
