Advantages of Living in a Small Home Community

A new build home offers the chance to personalize your dream home, but how do you choose the best community? Porchlight Homes’ craft neighborhoods offer the charm and tranquility of a vibrant, established community rich in heritage, with the appeal of a small neighborhood.

There are many advantages to living in a small community. If you’re considering moving to a quaint location, here are some reasons why we believe it’s a great option.  

A sense of community.

With a smaller community, it’s easier to create a vibrant community culture. Curated neighborhood events and distributing information doesn’t have to be an elaborate undertaking. Printed flyers left on your neighbor’s doorstep? That works in a small community. Neighborhood meet-ups, block parties, and even trick-or-treating on Halloween also hold a lot of meaning for those who live in a small community.

Know your neighbors.

Wouldn’t it be nice to go on an evening walk and stop and chat with others who are out and about? Or invite the neighbors over for an impromptu game night? It’s a nice feeling to know your neighbors, and in a small community, chances are you will. This is one of the reasons families choose a Porchlight Homes community. The small, family feel is something you can’t deny, even within our corporate office!

Care for craft.

We are proud to build our homes with the personal care of craft. We love that the families who purchase our homes continue that pride into home ownership. Drive through any Porchlight Homes community, and it’s easily identifiable that each home is cared for and loved. Showing off your design style and love for your home is a true mark of community adoration.

Limit non-resident traffic.

A practical reason why we’re all about small communities is because of the limited amount of non-resident traffic. It’s true! Especially with communities that have a single entry point or a gate, non-residents aren’t likely to be driving down your streets. This is nice to know when you have young kids playing outside. It’s also easy to identify suspicious vehicles with a designated neighborhood watch.

Community amenities.

If you’re looking for a lush and spacious greenbelt where the kids can play, like at Lazy Day Manor,  you’ll find that with a small community. We believe in fostering families by serving them with parks, pathways, and other amenities that bring them closer together through play. Not all new home builders believe in going above and beyond for families, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
