Two Car versus Three Car Garages - What's Trending in Chapel Hill? | 2016 Parade of Homes

Posted by Penny Hull on Fri, Oct 07, 2016 @ 11:10 AM

Triangle Parade of Homes 2016 Trends:

What's the latest trend for new homes with one, two, three, and four car garages?  Does a home ever not have a garage?

The Orange Chatham Durham County Parade of Homes can be a great trend indicator of the demand for the number of cars for the garage. We've analyzed the 2016 Tour data, and here's what we found:

Two Car versus Three Car Garages | 2016 Parade of Homes Chapel Hill



What's Going on with New Homes in the Chapel Hill area?  Number of Cars in the Garage

Two car garages were the most popular layout selected by home builders for entries available for viewing during the Triangle Parade of Homes in Chatham County.

1. Two Car Garages - 50% of Parade of Homes Entries in Orange County

  • 7 homes included a 2 car garage.  This is the most common garage layout.  Some are side facing, and some are front facing.

2. Three Car Garages - 36% of Parade of Homes Entries in Orange County

  • 5 homes included a 3 car garage. 
  • A 3 Car Garage has all three garage bays connected in a single row.

3. Split Three Car Garages - 14% of Parade of Homes Entries in Orange County

  • 2 homes included a split 3 car garage.  
  • A split 3 Car Garage has one bay on one side and double bay on the other side, at right angles to each other.
  • An appropriately designed split garage will allow access into both areas from the home.  This can be accomplished either by including enough area inside the garage or by including an access door from the home directly into each portion of the garage.  There are a few builders that do not create any access into the third bay, which can make it inconvenient to use.  

Two Car versus Three Car Garages | 2016 Parade of Homes Chapel Hill

4. One Car Garages - 0% of Parade of Homes Entries in Chatham County

  • Again, a one car garage is more common in townhomes.  No homes in Orange County were featured in the Parade with a one car garage.  

5. Zero Car Garages - 0% of Parade of Homes Entries in Chatham County

  • This is more common in townhomes than in single family homes.  No townhomes were submitted in the 2016 Parade of Homes, in Orange County, though there were entries in other counties.

Fourteen homes were submitted by new home builders as entries in Orange County in the Durham Orange Chatham Parade of Homes 2016, out of 65 total entries.  Seven of these new homes are in Hillsborough, five in Chapel Hill, one in Durham (Orange County address), and one in Mebane.

Posted by Penny Hull on Fri, Oct 07, 2016 @ 11:10 AM

Triangle Parade of Homes 2016 Trends in the Chapel Hill Area:

The Triangle Parade of Homes can give home buyers a sample of what's trending in new homes and custom homes this year.

So what's the latest trend for one story, two story, and main floor master layouts?  We've analyzed the data, and here's what we found:

One Story New Homes | Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders



New Homes from Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders

Main Floor Master homes were the most popular floor plan layout selected by home builders for entries available for viewing during the Triangle Parade of Homes in Orange County.

1. One Story New Homes - Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders - 0%

  • Zero one story homes were submitted in this year's Parade of Homes by Chapel Hill and Hillsborough area new home builders.  
  • One story homes are more expensive to build per square foot.  A main floor master with a first floor guest suite can be a more cost effective alternative for many new home buyers.

One Story New Homes | Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders

2. Main Floor Master New Homes - Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders - 64%

  • Nine of 14 entries, or 64%, of new homes entered in the Parade of Homes in Orange County were Main Floor Master floor plans.  
  • Main floor masters remain very popular with homebuyers, especially those with older children, or empty nesters looking for ease of use and fewer steps.  

3. Two Story Home New Homes - Chapel Hill Area New Home Builders - 36%

  • Five of 14 entries, or 36%, of new homes built in Orange County and submitted to the Parade of Homes were two story homes.  Four of these are single family homes, and one is an attached home.

What is the Cost Per Sq Ft? | Chatham County New Homes

Posted by Penn Hull on Thu, Oct 06, 2016 @ 17:10 PM

Chatham County New Homes within the Triangle Parade of Homes:

Thirty new homes were submitted as entries in Chatham County in the Durham Orange Chatham Parade of Homes 2016, out of 65 total entries.  Two are in Cary, fourteen in Chapel Hill, and twelve in Pittsboro. 

What do homes cost to build in Chatham County?  We've calculated the average cost per sq ft for homes entered into the 2016 Parade of Homes.  Here's what we found:

Cost Per Sq Ft | Chapel Hill Area New Homes

 



What does a new home cost to build in Chatham County?

A lot of factors can impact the cost of a new home, including: floor plan type (one story, main floor master, two story), finishes and features, the type of lot, and the cost of the lot itself.  These new homes do not represent the entire new home market in Chatham County, but do represent all Parade of Homes entries in Chatham County.

1. One Story Homes* - Cost per sq ft for Chatham County Home Builders

$451K
2596 sq ft
$173.81/sq ft

One story homes tend to be smaller, because as the square footage increases, it makes more sense to build upward.

Chart.jpg

2. Main Floor Master - Cost per sq ft for Chatham County Home Builders

Including Luxury Estate Homes, two Parade entries over $1 million:

$693K

3858 sq ft

$179.72/sq ft

 

Excluding the Luxury Estate Homes over $1 million:

$614K

3518 sq ft

$174.58/sq ft

 

Excluding Luxury Homes over $700K:

$536K

3328 sq ft

$161/sq ft

  • Main floor master homes, as the best of both worlds, are favored by both luxury and mid-range home buyers.
  • Excluding Luxury Homes "levels the playing field" and helps show a more direct comparison to One Story and Two Story homes.

3. Two Story - Cost per sq ft for Chatham County Home Builders

$424K

2918 sq ft

$151.16/sq ft

  • Two story homes are the most cost effective.
