Introducing the builders at Baseline and Why You Should Consider Buying a Brand New Home

With the challenging buyers market upon us, buying a new build might be something to consider. Here’s why…

  1. VALUE: Some resale homes are priced above their true value, especially when considering that you might be paying more than what the home will appraise for during this tough, current market. Lot costs still remain lower than peak amounts which help to offset increased building material costs.
  2. OPPORTUNITY FOR PERSONALIZATION: Getting to initially pick what goes into your home vs. having to refinish certain spaces, can save money in the long run.
  3. QUICK MOVE-IN: Some buyers have available homes right now. Looking for a quick close without competing? This could the way to go.
  4. APPRECIATION: Research says that new Colorado home construction generally has greater home appreciation potential than older Colorado homes. Also, many new builds can build equity before you even move in. If you get in early by starting with an empty lot and waiting the 9 months for your home to be built, you could lock in the best price point and be sitting on equity the day you move in.
  5. ENERGY EFFICIENCY:  Requirements to increase energy efficiency by government and utility companies are forcing Colorado builders to incorporate new and more efficient technology in order to lower consumption, which in turn lowers your utility bills. This effort also benefits the environment. You will be limiting your carbon footprint, all the while saving serious money compared to a drafty older house.

Introducing Baseline

Baseline is an up-and-coming neighborhood that sits at the junction of I-25, Northwest Parkway and Baseline Road, in Broomfield, Colorado.  This spot completes the Denver/Boulder triangle with easy access to both locations.  Baseline was designed for people who crave urban living but love the great outdoors.  It will be a walkable community with 145 acres of parks, farms and natural open space, yet filled with everything you need right out your front door.

What makes Baseline different?  
Sustainability lies at the heart of Baseline.  Pollinators allow plants to reproduce, crops to seed, fruit to grow and native landscapes to thrive.  It is with this in mind that the pollinator-friendly ecosystem was developed.  Baseline’s parks and urban gardens were designed to support this and will accompany the pedestrian-cycle friendly trail system throughout the community.

The Butterfly Pavilion will join Baseline as they set the new standard for sustainability.  An 80,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art invertebrate zoo and research center will reside in the heart of Baseline’s Center Street.  A hotel, drafthouse, fitness studio, Adams 12 STEM school, various shops and restaurants are all slated to hold space in the Center District.

 The West Village is a residential area and is currently being built.  KB Homes, David Weekley, Heritage and Thrive Home Builders will develop 186 multifamily homes and Park40 Apartments will offer 313 apartment homes within Baseline.
