New Homes in Chesapeake

New construction homes have become an increasingly desirable real estate option for many buyers looking to buy a home in Chesapeake. With a brand new home, one has the luxury of customization and no unwanted surprises. There's no replacing appliances or fixtures, as they're all straight from the factory. Some new homes even offer warranties. Buyers can rest assured that their residence will meet their personal or family's needs – all while designing their dream home at an affordable price.


If a buyer decides to build, they are able to do so on vacant land or in an existing new construction neighborhood in the city. Choosing this option allows a buyer to not only customize a floor plan, but select their own appliance colors, carpet, wood flooring, cabinets, countertops, exterior vinyl, roof, fixtures and ceramic tile colors from builder samples. They also include unique interior and exterior structural features, and are marked by their distinctive design and amenities.


Some new construction neighborhoods in Chesapeake include: Hunter's Ridge, Culpepper Landing, Rolling Wood, Kemp Bridge, Sommerton, Frost Estates, Greenbrier West, Moore's Farm, Greystone, Pleasant Grove East and Summer Park. One of these communities, Greystone, is nestled among eighty-six acres of wooded land in the Greenbrier section of the city. It has a minimum of ninety-foot frontages, four acres of park area and a third-of-an acre wooded home sites. From the $500's to $900's, the private and conveniently located neighborhood is close to great shopping, dining and major interstates. Another, Culpepper Landing, is on the Great Dismal Swamp Canal in the city. It's set within nature and yet conveniently located near all Hampton Roads' offerings. The Rolling Wood and Frost Estates neighborhoods, in Chesapeake's Great Bridge area, are affordable family homes starting in the low to mid $400's. This subdivision also has the backdrop of greenery as well as a great central location.

Using an Agent

When building a personalized home in Hampton Roads, there is often a high level of flexibility in the building process to ensure these dream homes meet their owners' expectations. Using an agent in this process will help in many ways. An agent can assist by directing buyers to newly built homes that specifically match their criteria. They can also recommend builders based on their reputation and experience in delivering a high-quality and reasonably priced product. A buyer with an agent will likely have more favor when negotiating for a new construction home or vacant lot. Additionally, agents can help buyers choose between hundreds of design and upgrade options and can recommend those which will add value to one's real estate when it comes time to sell.
