News and Information from Holland Homes.

Taking the initial step toward moving into a new home is both an exciting and nerve-racking time. It is the start of a new chapter in your life, and as you plant roots in your new home there is one very important thing to consider: do you want to live in a stand-alone neighborhood, or a new home community? This is the final consideration before you build your dream home, and while choosing your own lot to build on has its perks, living in a community has many benefits that make daily life easier. At Holland Homes, we have multiple major communities, ranging from townhomes to cottages, many of which are custom built. Below, are five reasons as to why living in a community may be the right choice for you.

Home is where you spend a significant amount of your time, which is why it’s important for you to feel comfortable and surrounded by what makes you happy. Remodeling your home can be an exciting process, whereby you can make your dream home a reality - one room or one floor at a time! A basement may not be on the top of a homeowners remodel list, but it can make a huge difference in the overall resale value of your home as there are so many fantastic transformations that can be done to it. At Holland Homes, we want to provide our readers with any tips and tricks we can think of for your next remodeling project.

A home is where you watch your children grow up and you go through life together as a family. A child’s experience in their home is everything and a major part of their development. This is where they play and grow, and the memories you create in your home will be ones you and your children will cherish forever. That is why it is important, if you have young children, to know how to make your home kid friendly. By making your home child friendly you will not only feel at ease knowing your home is a safe environment for your children, but also proud because you are giving your kids a place to prosper in their young, imaginative ages.
