Whether you’re looking to simplify your life with a home that’s easier to live in and maintain, or you’re a first-time buyer who can now own a home for what you’re currently paying in rent, discover the convenience and value of a brand-new, quality-built townhome in one of McFarland Home’s tranquil maintenance-free neighborhoods.

With an overall declining inventory of homes for sale in several local markets this winter, many people are finding that new construction may be the best way for them to get what they are looking for in a next home, especially when it comes to maintenance-free living.

Along with the opportunity to sit back and relax while someone else maintains the yard and shovels the snow, new construction lets you avoid the hassle and expense of constantly repairing and updating things to meet your unique needs.

Advantages like improved energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs with modern floor plans and the latest amenities designed to accommodate the way people live today plus builder warranties that cover workmanship, materials, structure and mechanical systems as well as manufacturer’s warranties on carpeting, heating and cooling, roofing materials and appliances are the top reasons why so many people are out touring new home developments to learn more about the process.

Featuring a great selection of built-to-last maintenance-free paired ranch and two story townhomes in the area’s most desirable locations, there’s never been a better time to choose new construction by McFarland Homes.

Offering a sneak peak of what’s ahead for the 2013 spring buying season, McFarland Homes invites to you come out and see how their commitment to a “better standard of quality” allows you to “experience a better way of living” in the following neighborhoods:
