Here’s why Landings at Eagle Lake new construction homes offer an unbeatable value

No Need for Costly Renovations or Replacements

Unlike older, previously owned homes in the area, a new construction home allows you to select your ideal layout then completely customize your finishings. This means no need for costly renovations or upgrades – just a beautiful, move-in ready home! 

When building a new home, you avoid expensive big-ticket items that need to be replaced in many older homes such as:

  • New heating or cooling units

  • New roofing

  • New interior or exterior paint

  • Kitchen or bath remodel

  • Flooring/carpet replacement 

With a Highland home, you will find your ideal layout and avoid costly renovations later on, with a broad selection of more than 10 spacious home plans for you to choose from.

Lower Home Maintenance & Energy Costs 

New construction homes don’t only flaunt the latest architectural styles, but also the latest energy consumption and safety standards.

New construction homes are virtually always the better option when it comes to lower energy bills. And the best part? The plumbing and electric will require less servicing (and leave you without ugly surprises!).

Here are even more reasons why the new homes at Landings at Eagle Lake provide such amazing value. 

A Home Warranty Protection Plan for Greater Peace of Mind

New construction homes in Landings at Eagle Lake are covered under the Highland Homes Builder Warranty after closing. 

This warranty is in effect for one whole year and begins once you take possession of your new home. This exclusive Builder Warranty protects your home against material defects, which takes a ton of the stress out of homeownership.

In addition, your new home in Eagle Lake is covered by the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW), protecting your investment with:

  • 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components.

  • 2 full years of systems surety coverage against defects in wiring, piping, and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating, and mechanical systems.

  • 1 full year of surety coverage against defects in workmanship and materials. (Concurrent to the Builder Warranty)

Having a third-party warranty through 2-10 HBW provides you with the additional peace of mind of an independent provider and neutral mediator should your home ever need repairs for covered defects. And, the 2-10 warranty is fully-transferable should you decide to sell your home, which is an added benefit that increases the resale value of your home.
