Moving Soon? Popular Northwest Communities, in Which We Build, For Outdoorsy People

If nature is your paradise, then the Northwest is calling for you. Here in the Northwest, nature is not only abundant, but it’s a place where spending time outdoors in our gorgeous surroundings is a strong community value. Furthermore, the Northwest has some of the most outdoor-centric communities in the entire country. Here are some great choices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that you may want to consider for your future home, especially if you’re looking for popular northwest communities for outdoorsy people.

New-homes-in-Bend-for-sale-at-Leehaven

Bend, Oregon

Bend is the ideal place for someone who wants to enjoy some of the luxuries of a big city (you’ll be wowed by the food and art here), but also wants to escape into the hills for some R&R on a regular basis. With the Cascade mountains nearby, Bend is equipped for nearly every outdoor activity you can imagine. No matter what your outdoor passions are, you’re almost guaranteed to find prime opportunities just a short drive away.

Spokane WA Great city for Outdoorsy people

Spokane, Washington

Spokane is a city with a long list of accolades including an excellent school system and inexpensive cost of living. It’s small enough to where people know their neighbors, but big enough to have drawn in a wide array of restaurants and entertainment options that you’re sure to love. Of course, Spokane is close to endless outdoor recreation opportunities in the mountains, on lakes and in rivers. And with Coeur d’Alene, ID not far away, Spokane offers close access to all that northern Idaho has to offer.

Moving to Boise from California what to know

Boise, Idaho

Speaking of Idaho, not only does Boise have more days of Sunshine than either of the two cities listed above, but it also offers a slightly slower pace of life, which the outdoor lover may appreciate. For those who love trails for hiking and mountain biking, the 190-mile Ride to Rivers system is a huge draw. Skiing options are nearby, as are parks and bodies of water for numerous other active adventures. Boise is one of the fastest growing areas in the Northwest, and for good reason.

New Homes in Sisters Oregon

Sisters, Oregon

Similar to Bend, Sisters is nestled in the heart of the Cascades but it has a unique, western feel. If you love the outdoors, but don’t love crowds, Sisters is the place for you. You’ll love Historic Western Town, the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, the Sisters Folk Festival and the Sisters Rodeo. The city offers excellent dining and entertainment options as well, and offers quick access to loads of outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, rafting, fly-fishing and camping.

How to Find New Homes for Sale Near You Online

Snowbrush Great RoomSearching for a new home is an exciting process. And while there are a number of different resources available to you, such as the help of an experienced and licensed realtor, friends and family, and referrals from those in your local community, one of the best resources is the internet. In today’s digital world, nearly all new homes for sale are listed online.

Great Websites for Finding New Homes for Sale Near Me

There are a lot of different websites that can be used to search for homes for sale online. A few top listing websites include:

  • Zillow.com
  • Trulia.com
  • Realtor.com
  • Homes.com
  • NewHomeSource.com

While these are some of the best sites, you should also find out whether there is a website that is specific to your state that provides MLS listings. Many home builders, including Hayden Homes, also maintain independent websites where you can find information about new homes for sale.

Things to Consider When Looking for Brand New Homes for Sale Online

There are a number of benefits to using the Internet to search for homes online. For example, when using the internet you can:

  • Compare prices of multiple homes at once;
  • Focus in on details, like a specific neighborhood you want to live in, that are important to you;
  • Get a lot of information about a home, such as how long it’s been on the market or what the average yearly taxes are; and
  • Explore your options and inform yourself about what’s available without making a commitment.

Virtual-Tour of New Hayden HomesIf you’re looking for new homes online, there are a number of things to think about as you search, including:

  • Pictures & Virtual Tours. Home builders are making it easier all the time to gain a good sense of what their homes look and feel like. For example, in new construction, there may not be an existing home where you can see it in person before you buy – which means occasionally you will need to rely on photos and virtual tours as a point of reference. This is a convenient way for customers to explore different home models and find one(s) that they’re in love with.
  • Information on online listings. You can learn a lot about a new home from the detailed information about the home on its listing. While there are occasional inaccuracies, you can trust the information enough to narrow down your options and proceed to obtaining a copy of the MLS listings from the listing agent. The listing agent will be your best ally in getting real-time information about the status of the home you are interested in. You can also contact the home builder directly to inquire about their home for sale if it’s a new home construction.
  • Your budget, location, and preferences. When searching online, it’s easy to get carried away – there are so many options to look at! When you are conducting an online search though, you should narrow down your search based on the location you want to live, preferences (like the number of bedrooms and bathrooms), and certainly by budget. For example, if your spending cap is $300,000, don’t look at homes that are $400,000 – this might get you thinking about something you know you can’t afford.

What’s Next?

Have you been comparing homes online for a while now, and now have a better understanding of what you’re looking for or can afford? If so, it may be time to meet with a new home builder. At Hayden Homes, we have the dream home you’ve been waiting for, whether you’re buying your first home or ready to upgrade your lifestyle.
