Ways to Love Your New Home Even More

Posted on October 27, 2016 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

At Miller & Smith, we truly care about our homeowners, and are willing to go above and beyond to help you love your new home and community! We could go on forever about how much you will love the features in your new Miller & Smith home, but we all know that “home” means even more than that. If you are looking to purchase one of our beautiful new homes, or have recently moved into one, take a look below for our tips for ways to love your new home even more! 

Design for your lifestyle: Your home won’t truly feel like yours until you have it decorated and arranged perfectly to fit your lifestyle and aesthetic. Luckily, all brand new Miller & Smith homes are designed with you in mind! With plenty of options to choose from, like Rec Rooms and additional bedrooms, and indoor/outdoor living spaces, our brand new homes give you the power to create everything to your vision.

Do some “off the grid” exploring: One of the best ways to discover your new community is to just go! Hop in the car and take random turns through the neighborhood to really get a sense of where you are and what local amenities are available to you. You may just find your new favorite restaurant or a secret trail, but make sure to have a GPS handy to get yourself back home!


Attend community events: In our new home communities throughout Virginia and Maryland, you will get the opportunity to attend year-round community events! Community events are a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors, some of whom may even become your lifelong friends. Make a point to attend some events as soon as you feel settled into your new home; we guarantee that the transition will be much smoother with neighborly support and guidance.


Find your favorite spot: This statement is vague for a reason; a favorite spot that you love could be anywhere! Whether it’s your backyard, a local winery, a boutique downtown, or a bench at the park, spending time in a place that you love can create time that you cherish and memories that will last a lifetime.

Meet your neighbors: Outside of community events, there are many other ways to meet your neighbors. Some of our favorites include hosting a dinner party, throwing a neighborhood block party, or simply stopping to say hi when you see them outside. 


Join an organization: Belonging to a local group or organization that consists of like-minded people makes feeling a part of your community a bit easier since you all will have something in common! Join your community association, volunteer for charity events, or find a club nearby that participates in activities that you enjoy. 


No matter which of these you choose to do, putting yourself out there is an easy way to make your new Miller & Smith home feel like it has been yours for a long time! If you are looking to purchase a new Miller & Smith home, visit our website for more information at!
