Chicago Suburbs - The Advantages of Relocating
The suburbs of Chicago are thriving! Places such as Naperville, Elgin and Bolingbrook are becoming increasingly popular places to relocate to. There are many reasons that these western Illinois suburbs are growing so rapidly. Overstreet Builders examined these areas closely and chose to build custom homes in specific communities that are attractive to homeowners for the following reasons:
- Continual Growing/Convenience
Home owners feel safer moving farther away from the city into the suburbs since conveniences are now following them. Today, many of Chicago�s suburbs offer the dining, shopping and entertainment venues that were once nonexistent as people traveled away from the cities. Naperville, Bolingbrook and Elgin are three of these very prominent areas, offering newly developed shopping centers in close proximity to where Overstreet Builders chose to build.
- Better schools
Some of the schools in the Chicago suburbs offer children an education that will push them toward success. State tests have proven that these students in these schools are above average in all areas tested. Overstreet Builders chose subdivisions where students will attend one of two highly acclaimed suburban school districts: Naperville School District #204 and Burlington School District #301.
- Easy access to city
Communities in the Chicago suburbs are easier than ever to get to since they are strategically being placed near highways access points. Overstreet Builders� suburban communities are all close to at least one major highway that has access to Chicago. Highway 90 is just a few miles from Highland Woods, while I-55 is only minutes from both Ashwood Park and Fairways of Augusta Villages.
- Safe communities
- Natural community
Property in the suburbs offers so much more opportunity when it comes to customization from the land to every aspect of your new home. There is a huge variety when it comes to choosing your land. Many of the homesites offered by Overstreet Builders back up to scenic ponds or open fields. In the subdivision Fairways of Augusta Villages in Bolingbrook, Illinois, several of our available lots even back up to the beautiful Naperbrook Golf Course. This community as well as the Elgin community, Highland Woods and the Naperville community, Ashwood Park all offer plenty of options when it comes to homesites.
- Variety in homes
In these communities, custom homes are also a highlight. These single family homes are actually required to look different than the house next door. The variety offered to our customers is broad since we are a custom home builder � building both custom homes and semi-custom homes. We offer both because our customers have different needs. Overstreet Builders offers several series of homes, depending on which subdivision you should choose to build your new home in. Most of our homes offer more than three different elevations as well as architectural options (larger rooms, jack and jill baths, additional bedrooms, etc.) to choose from. We offer several choices for our standard selections (brick, exterior colors, interior colors, flooring, faucets, etc.) and you even have the option to upgrade any of your selections giving you the freedom you want when building your new home.
A great perk that building in the Chicago suburbs is the price! Suburban new homes are substantially less costly than city homes. A new home built in a subdivision like Augusta Villages would cost about 30% more in the city. Overstreet Builders occasionally offers incentives to buyers and real estate agents � ask your sales representative today.
The suburbs can offer a variety of positive aspects when it comes to owning a new home. Schooling, conveniences, price, quality of home and surrounding area are just a few of the positive things that you can look forward to when deciding to move to a Chicago suburb � especially if you build with Overstreet Builders. We choose communities that our customers want to be involved with.
