Share This

To live in New Mexico is to live in the Land of Enchantment because of its unparalleled landscape, beautiful architecture, vibrant culture and rich history. During your new home search, you often will want to tour new construction model homes of home builders in NM.

Touring model homes is a great way to find your perfect floor plan. Here are a few simple tips for selecting the perfect floor plan from French Brothers, a home builder in NM!

Start with your lifestyle.

While you may have already been thinking about your next home, have you considered how large or small it should be? Have you created lists of “must have” and “nice to have” to help narrow down your options? Take a few minutes to really think about HOW you plan to live in the space, and ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you going to frequently entertain guests? How many bedrooms will you want? How large of a kitchen and living room do you need?
  • How would you like the space laid out? Is there a need for a hobby/flex room? What activities do you do now, that you will continue to do often? Will you begin any new activities?
  • How much garage space would be best? How much storage will you need?

If you are looking at model homes by French Brothers, a home builder in NM, then you have a great variety of floor plans, home sizes and price points throughout several new communities that could suit your family.

Overall, French Brother’s floor plans range from 3-5 bedroom, 2-3 car garages and provide some design and construction features. A consideration of adding another bedroom might include having a space for regular visits by family members, home office or a separate space for a hobby area.


Plan your visit.

As you narrow your search through all of the great floor plans, take notes of your favorite floor plan(s).  Then plan your visit to the community and walk the model(s) with something to take notes on. References the notes you made about features or areas of the home where you have questions.

If you plan to move / bring certain pieces of furniture to your new home, then take measurements. Consider creating a furniture floor plan to layout and design specific rooms. And then consider up/downsizing the square feet based on those ideas and plans. Some of the floor plans offer slightly larger living room and dining room areas than other plans. Some plans have an additional 3rd bedroom. Review your answers to the above lifestyle questions and adjust to the size of the home you will need.

During your model home visits, remember to explore all of the unique areas within that floor plan.

Don’t miss out!

After touring the new construction models and narrowing in on your favorite floor plan(s), schedule a visit to talk to the model home sales associate who can answer questions you might have. This is a great time to learn what is included with the purchase of a new home, what are extra options, and what is the availability and time line for a new home.

Lastly, take time to enjoy the process, but don’t miss out on a great opportunity with this home builder in NM. As a home buyer, planning your new home is an exciting time for you to look around and consider the endless possibilities of a new you, a new location and a new lifestyle!
