One of the most gratifying milestones in life is the opportunity to build your own custom home—that place that you have envisioned through the years. Maybe you may have been busy building up good credit, starting a family, and planning for the future. But now that you’ve reached your goal and are ready to build that dream, you definitely want to make a good buying decision—one that will be an excellent investment, will grow in value, and will provide you with a home you can be proud of. And a large part of getting all that will depend largely on where you build that dream home.

Choosing a good builder to build your home is only one part of achieving your dream. The other part is choosing where you want to live. In the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas there are a wide variety of new home communities from which to choose. Your choice of a homesite will mostly likely depend on what is more convenient to your work or to the school districts you prefer, but as you narrow your search, you should understand that like homes, not all communities are developed in the same way. Some communities are gated, for example, and some are not; some have Homeowner Associations which require yearly fees to maintain common areas, and others do not; some have certain restrictions, such as architectural controls, and others have none.[bg_collapse view=”link” color=”#c7bca3″ expand_text=”Show More” collapse_text=”Show Less” ]

Your final decision in choosing a new homesite will most likely be based on location and price. However, just like buying a home, you should look beyond the purchase price of a lot and focus on what and where to buy and whether or not the community and surrounding area will be a good investment with a potential to increase in value. A good rule of thumb is to do your research on the developer. Has the company developed communities in other areas? And if so, what do those neighborhoods look like now?

If you are looking for a homesite that will complement your dream home, you need to check out Red Rock Development’s communities. The company has been creating new home communities in the Rio Grande Valley for over a decade and has a solid reputation for developing affordable, private, beautiful neighborhoods that keep their beauty—and value—over time. You can easily find an affordable home in the $170’s in a one of Red Rock’s gated communities. According to Manuel Cantu, a partner in Red Rock Development, “There are five important aspects to consider before buying your lot: location, privacy, landscaping, architectural consistency, and sense of community. And we include all five values in all of our communities so that our buyers know what to expect now, and in the future.” Take the time to visit some of Red Rock Development’s gated communities and experience for yourself what an ideal homesite feels like. The company is currently offering ready-to-build homesites in Edinburg, Texas, at The Hills at Chapin and The Montecito. Mira Vista in Weslaco is the company’s newest development that is now selling lots.

You will find all three meet the criteria below for choosing the perfect homesite:

1. Location:

The neighborhood and everything around it plays an extremely important factor in your decision. Depending on your stage in life—whether you are newly married, or have started a family, or if getting to work without spending hours in traffic is your main concern—location is a key factor. Is the place you’re looking for near a main highway? Are there medical services and good schools in the area? Is your favorite grocery store or coffee shop nearby?

2. Privacy:

A home should be a sacred place where you can rest and enjoy family time, or time alone. A homesite inside a private gated community gives you peace of mind in knowing that you are in a protected environment with a sense of security and comfort. The traffic inside a gated community is limited to residents only, allowing less noise and congestion from outside the community. Living inside a gated community allows you to take your dog for a walk, take your baby out for a stroll, or even ride your bike, with an extra sense of security.

•  •  •

3. Landscaping:

Nature has become a luxury, especially nowadays where you see more buildings than trees. It is both a joy and a satisfaction to know that the green spaces around you will always be maintained. Homesites in The Hills, The Montecito, and Mira Vista are required to be landscaped with sprinkler systems and a two-tree minimum per lot. And because the landscaping in the common areas will be maintained, you can be sure that the neighborhood will always look beautiful years down the road. All of this will add value to your property should you decide to sell in the future.

3. Architectural Consistency:

It is a pleasure to drive around communities that have a harmonious design and quality in their construction. Architectural restrictions and controls implemented for roofs and home exteriors serve to enhance the uniform beauty of the neighborhood and ensure consistency in the quality of construction. Architectural controls and regulations are designed to protect a homeowner’s investment.

3. Architectural Consistency:

When you buy a lot in a non-gated, non-controlled community, you may not know what will be built next to you after you build your home. You also will never be sure that those driving in your neighborhood are your neighbors or live in your community. It is human nature to feel safe when surrounded by people you know. Living in a gated community instills that sense of safety.
