Housing Solutions for Military Families

In August of 2018, news organization Reuters published a series of articles covering apparent lapses in the oversight of living conditions in homes of military families. These allegations targeted private contractors commissioned to build and oversee maintenance of military housing developments. Among other issues, some homes allegedly had paint with high levels of lead, moisture issues and mold growth, and poor water quality.

Investigation & Review of Military Housing

A probe by the U.S. Congress determined these accusations were valid. As a result, all military housing operated by these private contractors is under review. If  a home is found to be unsafe, the family will need to relocate.

Among the effected installations is Ft. Bragg, which is just a short drive from McKee’s headquarters in downtown Fayetteville, NC. Nearly 6,500 homes serving those stationed at Ft. Bragg are under safety review. If forced to move, some families may choose to purchase a home instead of finding a rental property convenient to Ft. Bragg.

Housing Solutions for Military Families

For military families seeking available housing McKee Homes has many move-in ready options. Many McKee floor plans can accommodate growing families and are in communities near Ft. Bragg. Among the most convenient communities are Bedford, the Cottages at North Ramsey, Oakmont, and Sinclair.  Some of these communities offer homes starting from the low and mid $200,000s, as well as homes with 4+ bedrooms, single-story living, master suites on the first floor, and 2+ bathrooms.

With McKee Homes, the process of purchasing a new home is easy. If a McKee preferred lender is used quick closings are possible, and extra incentives on select homes may be available. For new homes and move in ready homes VA Home loans are easy to secure, may require no down payment, and have low closing costs. McKee Homes has a great deal of experience closing homes for service members and can accommodate special circumstances.

Additionally, McKee Homes can build specially adapted housing (SAH) and be ADA compliant.  The Department of Veteran Affairs offers SAH grants to veterans or service members who meet qualification standards. SAH grants help Veterans with certain service-connected disabilities live independently in a barrier-free environment. McKee Homes has experience building specially adapted housing and is glad to answer any questions regarding these needs.

Finally, McKee Homes offers a home warranty which can help ease the minds of new home owners. All homes built by McKee come with a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW), which offers 2 year systems and 10 year structural protection from the nation’s leading home warranty company.

Experience

Over the 9 years McKee Homes has been in building homes in Fayetteville, NC, proximity to Ft. Bragg has given McKee the privilege to help many veterans and their families purchase their perfect new home.  If you would like to tour a new home, give us a call at 910 672 7296 and schedule an appointment. We are always ready to help!

Can You Build a House on my Land?

Homebuilders get asked about building on land that customers own quite regularly. While we can’t answer for all homebuilders, we can answer how McKee Homes looks at and answers this question.

Can I build a house on my land

There are several factors that have to be considered when building on land that is not in a neighborhood that the builder is actively building in. We look at where the land is, if it is suitable for building on, and the time and cost.

Where is the land located?
If the land is in an existing neighborhood we will need to review the neighborhood’s covenants to determine if there are any restrictions on the size and/or style of the home. After understanding the covenants, the lot will have to be measured to make sure that it is big enough for the house to fit on

If the land is more rural, we have to make sure it’s easily accessible for our trade partners and builder to access. If necessary, a road may need to be built. We’ll also need to find out if the city/county will zone the land for a residential home (if it hasn’t been done already). We will also make sure that utilities are available.

Is the land suitable for building on?
Whether in an established neighborhood or in a rural area, a McKee Homes representative will visit the site and review a plat map to make sure there are no wetlands or other issues that may cause potential problems. Potential problems may include lack of useable water, extensive grading work, access issues and septic system suitability (if applicable).

Time and Cost
There is additional time and cost involved with building on your own land. When building on your land we do lose some efficiency because we are only building one home rather than several in a neighborhood. Additional time and expense will have to be allowed for inspections as well. However, some costs benefits you may find to you as well. For example, if you already own the land, provide construction financing, and pay for the utility extension fees this will result in a lower monthly mortgage payment.

So if you want to build a home on your own land, do your research on a builder that can meet your needs. A New Home Specialist at McKee Homes can talk to you about your options with building a McKee home on your land.

For more information please visit our Build On Your Lot webpage.

Second Floor Laundry Room

House floor plans have changed significantly over the years.  Everyone has an opinion on where things are best suited.  So one of the questions we get asked is “why is the laundry room on the second floor?”

McKee Homes developed all of its floor plans with living in mind.  We thought about how people use their homes and what makes the most sense for ease of use.  While we offer several ranch floor plans that have the laundry room on the first floor, we also have many two- and three-story floor plans that have the laundry room on the second floor.

Most people have experienced lugging laundry baskets, bundles of bedding and hangers up and down stairs time and time again.  With a laundry room on the second floor your days of lugging up and down the stairs are over.  Since the majority of laundry and bedrooms are on second floor, why not have the laundry room up there as well.  In all of the laundry rooms, folding stations have been added.  A folding station is an open front cabinet with cubbies and a flat top to make folding and sorting laundry easier.Many of our floor plans also offer sinks in the laundry room to assist with those messes that need a little extra attention.

Now some people might worry about the hassle of getting the washer and dryer to the second floor.  While it might be slightly difficult initially, you likely won’t be moving the appliances.  In a McKee home, the stairwells are wider making moving furniture and washers and dryers easier.  Another concern that homebuyers may fear is the washer overflowing.  McKee Homes has created a solution to this problem.  In all second floor laundry rooms, McKee Homes has installed trays that the washer sits in with a drain that connects to the main plumbing drain line.  This way if your washer overflows you won’t have a big mess to clean up.

So here at McKee Homes we like the second floor laundry rooms (in two- and three-story homes) because it helps make our homes a little more livable.  Come by one of our neighborhoods and check out the laundry room for yourself.
