Buy Smart. Buy New.

Buying a new home has always been a smart decision, and in today’s real estate climate, it’s wiser than ever to choose a brand new home over a pre-owned house.

More Value

With a pre-owned home, you often hear of multiple offers, many of which are $5,000 to $20,000 above the asking price, and even those are rejected without an accompanying “love letter” to the seller, an offer of all cash, and minimal time to allow the buyer to have a professional inspect the property. You might see an older home that looks like it’s been beautifully updated, but how do you really know what’s behind that trendy shiplap?

With a new home, you don’t pay over the asking price, financing is flexible, and you have the peace-of-mind of knowing the home was built by licensed professionals.

It’s Personal

Build a custom home or buy early enough in the construction phase, and you make the choices – flooring, kitchen countertops and appliances, bathroom vanities and tile, light fixtures, paint colors and more. With a pre-owned home, you’ve paid for and are living with someone else’s choices, or you’re facing the expense and hassle of redoing it all to suit your tastes. Why pay twice to get exactly what you want?

State-of-the-Art Technology

Technology doesn’t just affect our cell phones. It affects every aspect of our lives, including home construction. With a newly built home, you benefit from some of the latest advances in foundation engineering, energy efficiency and networking options that accommodate the latest smart home technologies. Designing structured wiring in a new home allows you to easily place wireless router access points wherever you want them for optimal Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home.

More Resources at Your Disposal

Graham Hart has been building homes for Dallas/Fort Worth families for more than 20 years, and founder Shawn Goff is a second-generation home builder. That longevity in the business means you have an entire team of resources at your disposal, from interior decorators who can advise you on finish-out selections to financing experts who can assess your personal situation and help you secure the type of financing that works best for you.

Easier and Less Expensive Home Maintenance

In the excitement of shopping for a new home, prospective buyers sometimes focus only on the sale price and overlook potential maintenance expenses. A new home features all-new appliances that include a manufacturer’s warranty. With a pre-owned home, that 10-year-old water heater could be an expensive disaster just waiting to happen.

And because new homes are built to higher energy-efficiency standards, you could see the benefits each month in lower utility bills.

Your Satisfaction is Our Motivation

Buying a pre-owned home from an individual is a one-time transaction. Buying a new home from Graham Hart is the beginning of a relationship.

Our company is built on a foundation of excellence, and our growth over the past 23 years is the direct result of satisfied homebuyers who recommend us to their friends, family members and colleagues. In fact, we’re even building second homes for some of our buyers. We strive to be the best at what we do, through attention to detail and dedication to a job done right.

Your new home is your dream, and it’s our honor to help you make it come true.

Categories: Custom Homes, Fort Worth, New Homes, News | Posted: May 9, 2018

Imagine a family-friendly community where you can take a walk in the park and have a family picnic in the great outdoors. A place where you can teach your children to fish and watch them play in the community playground.  A place where the weekend is filled with scenic hikes and refreshing bike rides.  This idyllic community is Skyline Ranch in Fort Worth Texas.

A Country Lifestyle Close to the City

At Skyline Ranch, residents are connected to nature every day with a beautiful new home community in Fort Worth that is surrounded by lush acres of wooded greenbelt, a 9-acre public park with trails for walks among nature, and hike-and-bike trails. Spend some time on the trails and admire the flowering plants and lush greenery that borders them.  You may see deer wandering along the creek side.

Our family-friendly community also makes it easy to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with the kids with a colorful, state-of-the-art playground and interactive play. The Walnut Creek playground promotes physical activity, encourages social interaction, and supports creativity and problem solving with slides, a jungle gym, games, winding pathways, spring riders, and swings..

Families can also enjoy exploring around Walnut Creek, eating lunch on the community picnic tables, or spending the afternoon enjoying some of the community sports events. Whichever activity you choose, our tranquil new home community makes it easy to make new friends among your neighbors and enjoy the peace nature brings.  You’ll also be pleased to hear that your children will be attending above average schools in this district, with West Park Elementary School and Benbrook Middle/High School receiving A and B ratings, respectively.

Although this community is tucked away and surrounded by nature, residents will also be able to enjoy everything the city life has to offer. Skyline Ranch provides easy access to I-20, I-30, Loop 820, and HWY 377, and is conveniently located 15 miles from Downtown Fort Worth and near Downtown Benbrook, which means you’ll be close to shopping, entertainment, and restaurants.  Take a traditional stroll among the winding paths, through the landscapes, and around the ponds in the Fort Worth Japanese Garden or the Fort Worth Zoo. The community’s proximity to Benbrook Lake also provides an opportunity for camping, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, and birdwatching. Families can also appreciate art and culture with two world-renowned museums, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and Kimbell Art Museum.
