The Perks of Building a New Home

By | New Homes

You may be ready to settle into the perfect family home, recognizing your ever-growing need for more space and functionality. Perusing the internet and taking trips through desirable neighborhoods, you may be getting frustrated with your options. There may not be the one perfect house that stands out to you. Either they need too much work, they’re too small or they’re completely out of your price range, making you feel as though you’ll never find the right space for your family. But what about building a new home? It’s a common misconception that building a home from the ground up is impossible, time-consuming and expensive. Nowadays, families are looking for places to grow and thrive, and many are turning to builders to help them create the space that works for them.

If you’re looking for a new home for your family, you may want to consider building one. Here are the perks of building a new home.

Customizable Features

When you choose to start fresh, you’re able to customize your home however you desire, so that you get exactly what you want out of the property. With GH Builders, you’re able to customize many aspects of your home, like elevation, interior features, lanai design and more to get the final product that works for your family. Being able to customize these elements of your home from the beginning helps you create the space that complements your lifestyle completely.

Modern Design Elements

New homes also feature the latest in modern design, which makes this process exponentially easier than trying to renovate an outdated home. No changes will need to be made to bring your home into the current century when it comes to design, because these trends are already implemented into the home. Plus, you’re able to incorporate the design aspects you want in your home, as opposed to having to settle for what’s already there. This is a big draw for many families, as they can create the space that helps them function optimally.

No Big Repairs

In a new home, everything is, well…new! There are no worries and there’s no need for big repairs or projects right away, because you’ve not only chosen everything you wanted for the home, all appliances, fixtures, etc are new and won’t need attention for quite some time. This helps to lessen stress during this otherwise hectic and chaotic time. Let’s face it, moving is tough. The last thing you want is a load of repairs on your plate.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Many new homes also include more energy efficient elements, such as:

  • Appliances

  • Windows and doors

  • HVAC systems

  • Thermostats

  • Water heaters

Energy efficient items not only help to lower your energy bills, they are also beneficial to the environment. It’s a win-win situation!

When you’re looking for a place to call home for you and your family, try to envision building your home from the ground up and having all the features you want in the space. Find the right builder who can design and create a place that your family can be happy in, and trust in them to guide you through the process with ease. It all starts with the right builder, so find the one who understands you and your unique needs.

Shopping for a New Home in 2020

By | New Homes

Shopping for a home used to include finding a few properties that you liked, scheduling a consultation with a builder and meeting with them in-person to discuss the plans for your new home. With the current pandemic that is sweeping the world, typical procedures have been adapted and replaced to ensure the health and safety of all parties involved in the home buying and home building processes. Although it’s uncertain when everything will go back to normal, it doesn’t mean that you still can’t shop for a new home.

Shopping for a new home in 2020 is possible! Here are ways that you can ensure the safety of your family while doing so…

Virtual Tours

Get the chance to shop for your perfect home right from the comfort of your living room. Through virtual tours, you’re able to get an up-close look at the homes you’re interested in without compromising your health and safety. Join your builder’s sales team as they navigate you through their model home or a home that you like and explore the features offered inside and out. Ask questions and get to know more about the home, so that when you’ve found the right home or piece of property, there’s no downtime when starting the process.

Builders are considered essential, which means that progress is still occurring on home building projects with a limited number of sub-contractors on-site at any given moment. Many builders have team members on site to provide you with a tour via Skype or FaceTime and are available to assist you, no matter where you are, at your convenience.

Online Home Building Tools

Build the right home for you and your family with just a click of a mouse. At GH Builders, we offer our ‘Design Your GH Home Online’ interactive portal available right on our website! Choose from the available floorplans and customize areas to meet your family’s needs. Customization options include areas such as:

  • Elevation

  • Bath options

  • Add-ons

  • Door selections

  • Lanai design

Not only can you choose what you wish to include, you get a real-time price, so that you know what to expect when it comes to the cost of the project. This level of transparency is unmatched in the home building industry, making this a top choice for many looking to find the right home in Golden Gate Estates.

Distance In-Person Meetings

If you want to be able to physically be in the home, you’re able to do just that. Tour a home the traditional way with a distance in-person meeting. Your builder’s sales team will guide you through available homes or properties, while maintaining proper distancing and safety procedures. This way, you’re able to step into the home in person, so that you can get a more personal feel for the space.

Shopping for a new home in 2020 has changed, but we see this as a positive move. Now, you’re able to tour homes from the comfort of your couch, design the perfect space from your phone and rest assured that you’re getting the right home for your family. Although things are different, our mission remains the same…to provide value without compromise to our clients and help them find the best homes to meet their needs.

At GH Builders, our team is dedicated to helping you find the right home in Golden Gate Estates. Call (239) 260-1755 or visit to get started.

The builder offers affordability, customization and designer appeal in all their homes. Interested parties can email or call (239) 260-1755 to schedule an appointment.

Originally developed as a class setting, the idea quickly morphed into a one-on-one driven format. Since the home buying process is so complex, the GH Builders team recognized the need for families to be able to have one-on-one contact with a professional to help answer their questions and guide them in the right direction. Answering common and complex questions, such as those relating to HOA/CDD fees, lender questions and realtor questions are covered, as well as other common questions that first-time home buyers wish to know. The program is in place to help home buyers learn the basics of the home buying process, so that they can make educated and confident decisions when it comes time to buy a home.

GH Builders ( was created by prominent Southwest Florida home builder, Gulfstream Homes, and helps families build the perfect homes in Golden Gate Estates. With a variety of floorplans to choose from and a multitude of customization options available, families can create their ideal home in this popular area. John Buzzy, Sales Manager with GH Builders, speaks about the program and how it helps first-time home buyers.

One of the interesting things we’ve recognized is how few formats there are to learn about the absolute basics of the macro-home buying process. The idea is to not only give prospective GH Builders buyers, but everyone the help they need when looking to buy a home and get answers to questions that we’ve all had at least once. The one-on-one format also allows for someone to direct the conversation at their pace and discretion, as opposed to a large class format,” he explains.

Those interested in a one-on-one first-time home buyer’s consultation can schedule a time that works for them by emailing, visiting and submitting a Virtual Floorplan Customization Tool or calling (239) 260-1755.

How to Choose Your Home Finishes Like a Designer

By | New Homes

From trim colors to cabinet design, flooring components to door handles, to say that you have a lot of decisions to make when designing a new home is a definite understatement. Who knew there were so many choices for so many aspects of the home? Well, if you’re not in the home building and design world every day, it can be tough to sort through all your choices when it comes to home finishes. That’s why we’ve compiled some helpful tips from the design pros. Don’t make the mistake of choosing the wrong finishes to suit your new home. Here’s how to choose your home finishes like a designer.

Timeless Over Trendy

Many designers advise sticking to finishes that can stand the test of time, as opposed to ultra-modern trends that seem there one day and gone the next. If you’re going for the contemporary look in your home, like many homeowners today, don’t choose too many trends at once. Instead, find a trend that you like and implement it into your home where it works best. Having too many trends in the home can not only be messy, you also run the risk of certain trends becoming outdated quickly. Too many trends can be a recipe for disaster in the home, especially when it’s hard to tell which trends will actually be around for more than a couple of years. The last thing you want to do is a complete overhaul on your home’s finishes every year or so.

Your Time Frame and Budget

Keeping these two important aspects in mind is critical to the home design process. Knowing your budget up-front is key and knowing how different finishes can impact the price of the home can help you decide which to focus on first. It’s also recommended to make your decisions about your home’s finishes within a narrow time frame. Having too much time to decide on the finishes and selections of your home can cause confusion in the process. Maybe last week, you were all about the brushed nickel faucets, now this week you’re not so sure. Making your decisions within a compact time frame helps you to construct a more solid vision when it comes to your new home.

Other Helpful Tips

In the home building and design world, it’s easy to get lost in the details, especially since there are so many of them! That’s why the professionals can help you stay on track. Other tips to keep in mind when making decisions about your home finishes include:

  • Limiting your finish choices

  • Maintaining your focus on the end result

  • Remembering that it’s your home

In limiting the decisions you need to make, you’re able to focus in on what matters most to you. For example, you may not have much of an opinion when it comes to guest bath tubs, but you may be passionate about your laundry room floor. Every homeowner is unique with a distinct style and you want to be happy with the choices you make. Remember, this is your home! Get the most out of it by keeping these helpful tips in mind.

Golden Gate Estates Home Builder, GH Builders, Reveals Details of First Model Home Now Under Construction

By | New Homes

Naples, Florida, December 18th, 2019– Home builder, GH Builders has released details about its model home, which is under construction in Golden Gate Estates. Created by prominent Southwest Florida home builder, Gulfstream Homes, GH Builders focuses on the cost-conscious buyer and offers affordable solutions to home buyers who are looking for value without compromise in Golden Gate Estates. This model home is the first in the area for the builder.

Located at 25th Street SW, the team broke ground in September and expects to complete the project in February or March of next year. The model home will feature the builder’s Signature Series gourmet kitchen, quartz counter tops and a wide array of selections from various levels throughout the home. The home will also include several self-guided work stations, which will allow clients to visualize and compare, along with on-site staffing to aid in the final selections process. The goal of the design center is to allow clients and prospective clients to feel as comfortable as if they were making the selections in their own home.

GH Builders makes it easy to find the right selections for the client, while helping them decide what they can comfortably afford through its interactive ‘Design Your GH Home Online’ portal.

Chris Ghannam, Business Manager with GH Builders speaks about the model and what clients can expect.

We wanted to design this model with a combination of options and standard features, not just a loaded model that doesn’t reflect online pricing. We felt it was incredibly important for our clients to see that their home can look beautiful with our included features and understand that they have many options when it comes to designing the home that works for them. We love the options and upgrades we are providing, but our entire line-up of selections holds true to our motto: “Value Without Compromise.” Our product sells itself and through this model, our staff is simply present to act as guides and valued resources to answer any questions clients may have,” he explains.

Top Kid-Friendly Features for Your Home

By | New Homes

When it comes to building a home, you need a space that works for your family, and if you have kids, you may have different needs than those without. Kids change your world for the better, yet they can also cause a little chaos in the home. Toys strewn about, crumbs in the couch cushions and a never-ending need for more super hero costumes may be just a few concerns you have on a daily basis. But what if you could make your home work efficiently with a few tweaks to its design? A well-run household is a happy household, and when you have kids, organization is everything. Here are some of the top kid-friendly features for your home.

Work & Play Counters

Let’s face it, kids love to be around their parents, especially when they’re young and especially when they’re doing something fun, like baking cookies in the kitchen. That’s why work and play counters are becoming increasingly popular for families with young children, so that the kids can stay close by, yet not get in the way. Work and play counters are especially popular in the kitchen areas, as they give kids a chance to help out in their very own space. Designers recommend using durable materials, like quartz, in this space, since kids can tend to be a little rough with their things.

A Floating Vanity

Floating vanities are especially helpful when kids need a little boost to wash their hands or brush their teeth in the bathroom. Creating a perfect spot for a small stool to slide underneath, a floating vanity is a wonderful addition to homes with kids. Maintain a modern look, while having the functionality you need in areas of the home, like the bathroom.

Concealed Storage

It’s no surprise that storage is one of the main concerns for home buyers. Ample storage is crucial in any home, but when you have kids, having enough storage is a must. Choosing closed or concealed storage for your home helps alleviate the cluttered look that you’re most likely trying to avoid. Having a mix of cabinets and drawers can accommodate toys, arts and crafts supplies, super hero costumes and anything else that needs a designated place in the home…away from plain sight.

Other Helpful Kid-Friendly Home Features

It’s important that your home function properly at all times, and this is especially true when you have kids. Other helpful features that you may want to include in your home are:

  • Area rugs under the dinner table (for all the food that accidentally drops to the floor).

  • Tiled walls in the bathroom (for all the toothpaste that finds its way everywhere except their mouth).

  • Semi-gloss paint (for easy clean up of “art” projects).

  • Rounded-edge furniture (for when playtime gets a little crazy).

Keep your kids safe and happy in the home, and keep your home running efficiently. In making some small additions to your home, you can ensure that things stay organized and your kids have the space they need to learn and grow.

The team at GH Builders is excited to help you and your family build the home that works for you! Call (239) 260-1755 or visit to learn more.

Why Contract Transparency Matters When Evaluating Builders

By | GH Builders Technology

In the modern world, we have options…a lot of them. From your car to your clothes, your pets and your food, there seems to be a world of options to choose from and the home building industry is no exception. When you’re on the hunt for a builder, not just any builder will do, and hiring the wrong home builder can be a disaster. One of the most important aspects of the home building process is contract transparency, which if you can believe it, can sometimes be hard to find with many builders. Knowing what you’re getting and what to expect during the building of your home is crucial and unnecessary headaches, like hidden fees can cause problems. Here’s why contract transparency matters when evaluating builders.

Knowing What to Expect

Building a new home can come with a lot of questions that need to be answered by you. That’s why it’s important to iron out the details with your builder, so that there are no surprises before, during or at the end of your project. Aspects of your project that will need to be clear and concise include:

  • Timeline

  • Cost

  • Home design

  • Lot details

  • Finishes

the list goes on. Being able to refer back to your contract to get the answers you’re seeking is a big advantage. After all, it is almost impossible to remember everything you talked about with your builder, so instead of wondering about a specific detail, you’re able to check your contract and know exactly what you’re getting and what to expect.

Knowing What You Can Afford

A big factor in building a home is cost. This may not come as a shock, but if you’re not well-versed in the home building industry, you may not be aware of how changes to the layout or additional features can impact the numbers…and the timeline of your project. Seeing these details in black and white can help you figure out just what your budget is, so that you can get the most out of your home project. Plus, having transparency in your contract means no hidden fees and no surprises.

Here at GH Builders, we offer a web feature that allows clients to make structural changes to their project, helping them to better understand how these changes can impact costs. Prospective clients, as well as current clients are able to utilize this feature to go through all major structural options, seeing how the price changes automatically for all areas of the project that can actually be controlled. There are some exclusions to this, one of them being land options, since building in Golden Gate Estates has many variables that are discussed in the preliminary stages. No competitor in this market offers this type of calculating tool, which helps take the guesswork out of the entire way the home building process works.

The Importance of Contract Transparency

Finding a builder who offers contract transparency is not only helpful, but imperative to the success of your project. Not only does this increase the level of trust that you have in your builder, it helps keep everyone involved on the same page. In some cases, where there isn’t contract transparency, the homeowner may have an entirely different picture in their mind about their project than the builder has, which can result in tension and disappointment. The last thing you want to experience during this process is excess fees, longer timelines, added stress and not getting what you expected.

When it’s time to start a home project, look for a builder who provides you with a clear outline with no strings attached. Not only will you know what you’re getting from the beginning, so will your builder. After all, open and honest communication is everything when it comes to the success of your home project.

The GH Builders team is proud to provide contract transparency to its clients. Call (239) 451-6157 or visit for more details.
