What is "right-sizing"? We're glad you asked.

A right-sized home is simply that...the right size for you and your family. No more, no less. At Holt Homes, we meet with you to determine what your lifestyle is, what your family is like, and then we can help guide you to the right-sized home for you.

Or, you may have a larger family, and you need more room for your kids, so you want your home's footprint to grow with you too. Whatever your stage in life, Holt has the right-sized home for you.

What's great about right-sizing is that you get more of what you want on your terms. Maybe you care less about space and more about features. That's great! With a right-sized home, you can have more room in your budget for the upgraded features you want. If you're all about the extra space, you might consider maximizing the included features in your Holt home so you can spend more on a larger floor plan. It's all about prioritizing your wants and needs.

Not sure where to start? Here are some factors to consider when choosing your right-sized Holt home.

1) Location

You've heard it many times. When it comes to a new home, it's all about location. The good news is, we're really lucky. We get to call the Pacific Northwest our home! Each of our communities here in the PNW is special and unique for its own reasons geographically. Holt builds in amazing locations all over ranging from Southwest Washington as far south as Eugene. Some are closer to the city than others, so if you like the hustle and bustle of city life, you might prefer living in Pleasant Valley Villages, which is just outside of Portland in Happy Valley. If you like country living, The Hearth at Millican Creek has a serene location in the heart of the wine country. Get to know all of our communities, so you can prioritize which location is ideal for you.

2) Design

Holt Homes are designed to make the most of your space. Features such as vaulted ceilings or open layouts can make a home with a smaller footprint seem huge. When you buy new, you don't have to retrofit a home to live the way you want it to. You can get what you want right away. Those wish list items, like a walk-in closet, updated finishes, or an extra bedroom, can be yours now.

3) Plan

We have many floor plans to choose from. From ranch-style to two-story, traditional to modern, we have a plan that's right for you. The best way to determine which one is right is simply by meeting with us. Request an appointment, and we can walk you through which floor plans are available at which communities, then figure out a plan to fit your needs.

To get those creative juices flowing, here are some great plans for right-sizing:

The 1594

This single-level home has a smaller footprint, but is big on features. The 1594 actually fits 3 bedrooms including an amazing owner's suite and vaulted ceilings in the great room. Wish list items like a large utility room, eating bar and covered porch are all included in this right-sized home that has major curb appeal.

The 1657

The 1657 has a great walk-in closet in the owner suite as well as a walk-in pantry, making storage a breeze. The open flow of this single-level layout is easy to love. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the 1657 is a great-sized home for all kinds of families.

The 2096

2096 Home Exterior

Although it's a two-story floor plan, this clever design has an owner's suite on main level with the other bedrooms upstairs. With a larger footprint, the 2096 is great for growing families or if you just want a little more room (and quiet). You'll love this plan while hosting any guests or family, like your grandkids. Features like the soaking tub, vaulted great room, and covered patio really make life feel smoother in the 2096.
