"With 9ft ceilings, quartz countertops, and engineered hardwood, we offer what is most desired, but often considered a big upgrade as standard,” said Patton.

Modern Living for First-Time Homebuyers

Their Cascade 2 model is 1,462 sq. ft. and devotes the most area to its living room, which appears even bigger with overhead volume in its 9-ft. ceilings and a borderless design that blends into the rest of the main floor.  A large nook is the right size for serving up daily feasts or bringing visitors to the table. A backdoor mudroom is perfect for stashing boots and four seasons of coats. The kitchen is centrally positioned so cooking and main floor conversations are shared with ease, where two can work together. Bar-height seating at the island puts guests in view during meal prep.

Upstairs, three bedrooms and two full baths, with second-storey laundry, hit the key features that assure resale value. Meanwhile, an ensuite bath with two sinks and a walk-in closet makes morning routines peaceful.

Homes for New Beginnings and Empty-Nesters

Meanwhile empty nesters prioritize financial freedom when they release equity from a family home. The move down creates a financial buffer to bolster retirement plans and easier chores resulting from their smaller home footprint.

A Location that balances work and play is essential, and they crave efficient layouts that maximize every square foot.

"Our clients appreciate the convenience of walking anywhere, from daily errands to strolls in the park," Patton said.

 Properties within walking distance of downtown Cochrane, Spray Lakes, the Rec Centre, and local dog parks.

Douglas Homes stands by the longevity of its construction, and with a new home warranty, purchasers get the assurance of durability and longevity compared to choosing a used home.

 Buyers also love the benefits of Douglas’s quick possession offerings, ranging from 60 to 160 days, without sacrificing the home's quality or the custom feel, Patton said.

Unlike a custom build, buyers avoid the lengthy construction wait times associated with new construction, accelerating the process from purchase to move-in. It’s especially handy for those relocating for work or whose current living situation has changed suddenly.

With a fixed design in progress, there's also no risk that a buyer is tempted to customize with runaway upgrades. The costly venture adds up for those who are dazzled by luxury options when they’re offered. The certainty of all-included pricing is a financial relief for those with strict budgets.

Many buyers also relish seeing a home in progress rather than imagining spaces from floor plans or renderings. They can make informed decisions about room sizes, natural light, the streetscape and more, ensuring the home truly fits their needs.

Many first-time buyers prefer homes that don't require immediate work or renovations so they can move in and start enjoying their new home right away. Homes that are new or recently renovated are often desirable because they typically require less maintenance and may have lower immediate repair costs, which has empty-nesters celebrating the break from the cost and DIY tasks piling up in their old family homes.

Douglas Homes’ approach to homebuilding caters to the aspirations of first-time buyers and downsizers, hitting the sweet spot of affordability, quick move-ins and quality when families are making their first or final significant investment in their future.
