Since 1954, Freure Homes has been giving families in Kitchener-Waterloo a place to call home. With more than 13,000 new builds, this company seeks to meet current needs, be it accommodating growing families, aging in place, or the rise of the Work From Home (WFH) workforce. With sold out developments and high demand for Freure’s craftsmanship, the company weighs in on why their reimagined townhomes are being snapped up so quickly – and why you should check them out if you are in the market for a new home.
To start, Sara Laepple, Sales Manager, notes that townhomes are a great way to get on the property ladder, as they are more affordable than single family homes. Larger than a condo and a way to achieve ownership without renting, townhomes are the ideal way to start your home buying experience.
“Our revamped townhomes are designed to accommodate growing families,” adds Sara. “Features include separate living space on the main floor (great room and a den); additional office space on the basement, main, or second floor for those that work from home or kids that are learning at home; a spacious kitchen that accommodates built-in appliances; and between 3-5 bedrooms with an option for a bedroom on the main floor.”
There is no compromise on convenience to get this extra space. Freure Homes provides lawn maintenance and snow removal so you can spend less time on chores and more time with the family.
“Hopefully family gatherings will be back soon, and when they do, everyone can gather on the spacious deck. Our outdoor livings spaces in our townhome communities offer space for enjoying barbeques and time in the sun.”
Think storage will be at a premium? Think again. Some of the townhomes have a double car garage, and the space inside each unit offers maximum efficiency.
Additionally, as Sara points out, “Townhome communities approve a Board of Directors that maintain the subdivision and listen to unit owners’ concerns. We also offer new low monthly deposit plans to help offset the 7 per cent down payment (for example: $10,000 on signing, outstanding deposit split monthly up to five months prior to closing). Best of all, there are no bidding wars. Simply come into our model home to sign an offer. It’s the stress-free way to buy a home.”
Families are choosing Waterloo because it’s a great place to live.
“Waterloo has many parks for everyone to enjoy and the tech hub is growing daily. We feel buyers are recognizing these advantages in our region and are wanting to purchase here to start a family.”
Those that do purchase find themselves partnering with a home builder that puts customers first.
“We are a family owned business that treats all of our purchasers as family. We try to accommodate all our purchaser’s design ideas to ensure they are getting exactly what they want and need. Many clients are repeat buyers because of this approach. They value all the choices we offer.”
She closes with this advice for potential buyers, “Before purchasing any home, from new or resale, look at the flow of the home. Are there any wasted areas that can’t be used? Home prices are dramatically increasing, so ensure that all space is usable to fit your family’s needs.”
