Spending time in nature can help you be more active and improve your mood. More prospective buyers are paying attention to surroundings and nearby green spaces when choosing a home, a factor that can influence your lifestyle and help you adopt healthy habits.
At Craftmark Homes, green spaces and walkability are important factors we consider when developing new communities.
