Since production builders are home builders who build for communities, the people who own the land they build on usually have a say in the type of homes that are built. Even though production-built homes come in all shapes and sizes, here’s 3 things that are important for homeowners this year!
Rising costs of utilities and a growing desire to be environmentally friendly are both contributing factors to the popularity of energy efficient appliances and building materials. Since energy efficient appliances are usually more expensive, production home builders need to figure out what their customers would value the most.
Open Floor Plans

Especially now that a lot of us are at home more than we used to be. We need spaces that can be multipurpose and that’s reflected in more buying trends.
