3 Bold Trends for Your New Home in Halifax

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 by Polycorp

Every year Halifax area home builders are asked about trends we’re seeing in the housing market. Check out these 3 bold housing trends we’ve seen this year.


  1. Drop zones – Have you noticed that when you come in the door of your home, you need a place to drop keys, mail, your phone and whatever else you may be carrying?  That’s why new homes often feature a “drop zone” complete with mail slots and a phone charger.  The way we live is changing, and so will the spaces we live in.
  2. Downsizing – With the high cost of home ownership including heat, taxes, insurance and maintenance, some homeowners are seeing the benefits of a little less house. Q Lofts offers elegant minimalism while still delivering the comfort and style you deserve. Targeting occupancy in the Fall of 2014, Q Lofts are Halifax’s first true north end lofts and are priced starting at $299,900.
  3. Flex rooms – Flex rooms have become a popular trend homeowners want.  As one of the top Halifax area home builders, we’ve listened to requests from our customers and designed a floor plan to accommodate multigenerational needs.  15 Dronachy Lane, the last remaining home in the Ravenscraig community, includes two flex rooms to suit the needs of your family and adapt to your lifestyle changes over time.
