Finding land through its future builder offers many advantages for future owners. Maisons SIC offers its customers find land (of agencies, individuals, etc.) before building their new home. 

The customization of a turnkey project is one of the main advantages of a modern villa. Buyers of a new home can choose the design and characteristics of their future home according to their tastes and needs. They also have the option of customizing finishes, flooring and equipment for a made-to-measure habitat.


What 2023 trends for the design and interior decoration of your new home?

2023 trends in design and interior design can also be considered when customizing a modern villa. Builders offer house models that meet buyers' expectations in terms of aesthetics and functionality. 

Modern villas are often endowed with great luminosity and successful integration with the external environment. For example, it is possible to choose a minimalist style with open living spaces, neutral colors and clean lines. 

For a warmer atmosphere, you can opt for bohemian decoration with ethnic textiles, floral patterns and exotic decorative items. Current interior design trends also include the use of natural materials such as wood, stone and leather.

A “ready to decorate” house is an ideal solution for buyers who want a modern and suitable home, without worrying about finishing work. The expenses related to the adaptation to the ground and the costs of connection to the network are included in the price of the villa. 

Future owners can thus benefit from a new and personalized house, ready to be decorated according to their wishes.

Buying land and building a house can be an expensive and complex project. That's why many builders help their customers find the right land, to achieve significant financial savings.

Builders usually have agreements with specialized companies for network connections, which can reduce costs for future owners. They can also offer more efficient insulation and heating solutions, thus making it possible to achieve significant energy savings over the long term. For example, the use of solar panels or a heat pump can considerably reduce the energy bill.
