Buying or building a new home is a very important choice in life. The home you choose may grow with you for many years to come. It's vital that your new home now has the features you need as your get older. As time proceeds, you can always make changes to your home, but the more features it initially has, the better!
If your home is built with universal design, it is inherently accessible to the elderly, people with disabilities, and those without. Universal Design focuses on function and style for everyone. This includes single-story floor plans, wider doorways and hallways, step-free entries, and counters at the right level that that are easy to grab.
New homes that are built with low-maintenance yards are becoming more popular, especially here in El Paso with our desert climate. Desert landscaping can look very beautiful and requires very little maintenance. This can be very beneficial if you lead a very busy life and as your grow older.
More and more new homes are being built in communities that offer nearby conveniences, like grocery stores, pharmacies, medical care and restaurants as well as nearby schools. Pointe Homes is currently building new homes in several new communities in El Paso.
