Best-selling Floor Plans of 2020


A bright spot in an otherwise challenging year, new home sales have been strong in 2020. Many who had the means to buy a home jumped at the opportunity to secure super-low mortgage rates—sometimes at or below 3%—and a large segment gravitated toward new construction. Decreased resale inventory likely played a part in that, but other factors such as location (away from populated urban centers), perceived new-home safety and cleanliness, and the ability to find and build to order floor plans with the flexibility to meet the changing demands of today’s households can’t be ignored.  

Below, we’ve rounded up the floor plans buyers across the country flocked to in 2020. See which ones we’re building near you and compare them to your buyers’ wish lists!

  • Approx. 2,450 to 2,990 sq. ft.

A top-seller year after year, the Hemingway hits many buyers’ sweet spot in size, specs and value. A spacious open great room, dining area and kitchen offer airy space for buyers to entertain, and there’s even more if they choose a sunroom option or covered patio for outdoor living. Flex space toward the front of the plan makes an excellent home office, and a loft provides similar versatility upstairs—great for a playroom, classroom or fitness center.
