Home Builder FAQ

What is a luxury home?

It is difficult to define what qualifies a home as a “luxury home” since it has much to do with one’s perspective.  Luxury Homes are not average.  High-end homes stand out from the ordinary.  Price alone does not distinguish that status.  A luxury home can be located in a premium spot, have a larger than average floor plan, include the latest technology upgrades, high-quality fixtures/appliances, and other add-ons such as outdoor kitchens, outdoor pool, spa bathrooms, dressing room storage and so on. Most importantly, a luxury home will be your own distinctive home with details and quality that make it stand out from the rest.
