These new home designs give builders an edge to compete with the glut of pre-existing, pre-owned homes on the market today
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) October 21, 2009 -
Hanley Wood, LLC, the leading media company serving the residential and commercial construction industries, announces the re-launch of Builder House Plans (http://www.builderhouseplans.com). The new and improved Web site has re-designed and re-engineered components which incorporate a streamlined look and feel, state-of-the art search functionality and brand new builder-oriented content. Builder House Plans is Hanley Wood's only Web site designed exclusively for professional home builders seeking stock home plans and project plans.
The re-designed Web site features more than 24,000 house plans from more than 300 of the nation's leading residential designers and architects. Each design features market-busting qualities, including smaller footprints, open living spaces, simple roof lines and custom touches that offer both comfort and curbside appeal. Designed specifically to help builders maximize profits in today's challenging market, Builder House Plans features collections of plans with multifamily layouts and designs for narrow lots, while also featuring the latest green home designs, best sellers, editor's picks and supplemental plans for garages, decks and small projects. Also available are unlimited-use plans a unique collection of house plans with built-in permissions to build and rebuild an unlimited number of times.
BuilderHousePlans.com offers residential builders solutions to conquer today's construction market by maximizing profits and differentiating their brands. Stock home plans are an affordable solution for production builders who have cut back on their internal designers and staff architects. Many plan designs are value-engineered to include simpler rooflines and fewer interior walls, making them cheaper to build and thereby improving margins.
Builder House Plans is continuously refreshing its house plans inventory with new designs that reflect the latest in consumer tastes. "These new home designs give builders an edge to compete with the glut of pre-existing, pre-owned homes on the market today", said David Rook, General Manager of Consumer Media at Hanley Wood. "Much of this pre-existing inventory lacks many of today's most popular design features, including open floor plans, home maintenance areas off the kitchen, charging stations, gourmet kitchens, informal living spaces and bonus rooms."
A builder advantage program offers members additional benefits starting as early as their 2nd purchase. Each time a purchase is made the discount increases. Participation is completely free and does not require a purchase to join.
