The fun part is talking about your selections. So I thought I would list the main ones that I'm most excited and must haves.

End unit - I have a townhouse. The end units are always the most coveted. Since I was the first under contract I got the pick of the litter.

Finished basement - Initially if I went with NVR they would give me $6500 (ish) towards a finished basement. I would be responsible for the other $3500. My realtor and I negotiated the $3500 as an additional incentive.

1st fl Powder room - We also negotiated that as an incentive.

Kitchen Island

42" maple cognac cabinets

Hw Floors in the foyer, kitchen, dining room and powder room

Upgrade the carpet pads. Upgraded carpet in basement.

Stainless steel range and dishwasher. I'm going to buy my own refrigerator and microwave. I believe if i shop around I can get a better price.

Additional windows in great room (living room)

Slate fireplace with blower - without the blower it's basically just for ambiance.

Soaking tub in master bath

Home theater wiring in basement

Outlet over fireplace for tv and outlet and wiring in kitchen island for the auxiliary boxes.


  1. Sounds wonderful :) Lucky getting the end unit that's great

    1. End unit was a must have. I have to always think of the future. End units sell easier.

  2. Great choices, Shane! SCORE on the incentives!!
