  • The impact of location on lifestyle

When building a custom home, it's essential to consider how the location will affect your daily life. Your home's location can affect everything from your commute to work to the quality of schools available for your children. One of our clients at Natale Builders chose a location near his workplace, which significantly reduced commute time and improved quality of life.

  • Proximity to amenities and services

A prime location should offer easy access to essential amenities and services such as shopping centers, restaurants, medical facilities, and recreational areas. This ensures that you and your family can enjoy a comfortable and convenient lifestyle in your new, custom home.

  • Environmental factors to consider

It's crucial to consider environmental factors when choosing a building location. These factors include soil quality, drainage, and hazardous materials. If the latter are nearby, you’ll want to know it. Proper evaluation of these factors will help you avoid potential issues down the road, such as foundation problems or health risks.

  • Neighborhood and community

The character of the neighborhood and community where you build your custom home will significantly impact your experience there. Look for a neighborhood that aligns with your values and preferences regarding safety, walkability, and a sense of community. Also consider the area’s potential for growth and development, which can affect the value of your home over time. Natale has beautiful homes in quaint neighborhoods of East Amherst, Wheatfield, and Williamsville, New York.

  • Resale value and future considerations

While you may not plan to sell your custom home any time soon, it's essential to consider resale value when selecting a location. A prime location with access to amenities, good schools, and favorable environmental factors will make your home more desirable in the future, should you decide to sell.
