New home with basement

New Homes with basements

are not easy to find. If the terrain is sloped many builders choose to not add a basement as building a basement is very costly and there are concerns about water-proofing it. correctly.


They are still very popular and buyers will request them. A basement home offers possibilities to the homeowners for additional living space at less cost than building onto the home. With many people concerned with storms and strong winds, a basement can be an excellent solution to giving extra storage or being used as a storm shelter.

There are many new homes designs and styles. As I drive around Clarksville I see new neighborhoods expanding which will bring more new homes in the coming months. There are many choices for home buyers desiring new homes.
