Fall is in full swing in Ohio. That means cooler temperatures and even that the first snow flurries are falling! Even though the cold weather is beginning, you can still take the proper measures to prep your home for the winter to come.

These days a lot of Ohio home buyers prefer an open floor plan. At Parkview Homes, we have all sorts of plans, but certainly the open floor plan or open concept plan is one of the most popular in our Ohio-based communities.

There are several reasons why buyers prefer homes with open floor plans. Here are some of the biggest reasons that come to mind:

Increased Natural Light and Sightlines: An open floor plan gives you a sweeping view of your kitchen, dining and living areas. Also, the open-ness of so many rooms brings in a lot of natural light that you would cut off if there was a wall separating the space.

The Cook Can Be Part of the Group: Having a kitchen open to other rooms allows whomever is in the kitchen preparing meals to see and communicate with people in the other rooms. That means when you entertain guests, you can be in the kitchen while they sit on the couch AND you can also keep an eye on the kids playing while you are making dinner - both are situations where being cut off in a separate room would be less than desirable.

Spacious Feel: Perhaps the largest reason why open floor plan homes are popular is because they feel spacious. Having a large open combination of rooms feels like much more space than 3 individual rooms. The open feeling is further maximized by vaulted ceilings or skylights.

Let's face it, there are a lot of Cleveland home builders out there - the HBA of Cleveland lists about 50 active home builders as of publishing - so when you begin researching a builder for your home, it can be very confusing.

Just like in any business, there is a vast difference between different building companies, and some Cleveland home builders stack up better than others. Builders run the gamut from builders who specialize in low price, low quality homes to custom luxury builders who take each new home project as a new opportunity to delight a home buyer.

So, how do you begin? Well, to start, there are certain questions to ask your home builder that will give you a good idea of the kind of home builder they are. Here is our short list of the top questions to ask your home builder:

1. What is included in my new home?

Included features are one way to really differentiate between Cleveland home builders. Some builders will have very basic included features, while others, like Parkview Homes, include upgrades such as granite countertops.

This is extremely important when looking at pricing as well. One builder's prices may seem higher than another's, but when you look at what is included in the home, you may see the difference in value.

2. How much of my home can I customize?

Many national builders have specific home plans that they build and cannot deviate from those plans because it isn't authorized with the corporate office. While other builders are fully custom and can move walls in an existing plan to make it more to your liking or even go full whitepaper to build your home to your exact specifications.

Check with your builder to see how much customization they can do. If you've purchased a home before or have very particular wants and needs, you would probably do best with a fully custom builder who can give you what you want.

When you begin your new home search, one of the first decisions you’ll encounter is whether to build or whether to go with a Quick Delivery Home. A Quick Delivery Home is a new home that is already built or in the stages of being built, often with some or all of the design selections made by a professional designer who works with the home builder. Quick Delivery Homes are called by many names, often referred to as Inventory Homes, Move In Ready Homes, Quick Move In Homes or Spec Homes.

While there are many perks to building from scratch with your own vision in mind, there are some pretty convincing reasons to choose a Quick Delivery Home as well, especially if you need a new home, well, quickly.

Cleveland has much to offer to those who choose to live here. You can find urban vitality and stunning natural beauty within arm’s reach from homes in Cleveland and the surrounding areas.

For many, the American Dream represents having a large home, with plenty of space for a growing family and entertaining guests. But if you’ve already had the experience of owning a large home and your children have grown up and moved out, you may be reconsidering all that space and thinking of simplifying your life with a smaller, more manageable home. After years of owning a large home, downsizing your square footage or “rightsizing” can be a welcome change that allows you to cut your living expenses.
