5 Reasons to Buy a New Construction Home in Prattville, AL

Located just 20 minutes from downtown Montgomery, the city of Prattville offers a near-perfect blend of small-town serenity and city convenience, combining its New England-style downtown with southern charm and hospitality. With so many great perks to living in Prattville, it’s little wonder this small-but-growing community has become one of the most popular destinations for homebuyers in the area. In particular, homebuyers are flocking to Lowder New Homes’ Hedgefield neighborhood. Let’s explore five top reasons why you might want to consider buying a new construction home in Prattville, AL.

1. Conveniently Located

While located 13 miles northwest of Montgomery, Prattville is located just off Interstate-65, one of the state’s primary north-south arteries. Not only does this make for easy commuting to and from the city, but residents of Prattville enjoy easy access to Montgomery attractions, outdoor recreations and traveling to the mountains or the beaches, as well.

2. Historic Charm

Originally designed by industrialist Daniel Pratt in the 1830s, Prattville’s legacy as one of Alabama’s first “planned communities” remains today with its lovely historic downtown area. While Prattville has grown in popularity as a suburb of Greater Montgomery, this community of 34,000 still retains its small-town charm. The city’s motto is, “Where progress and preservation go hand in hand.”

3. Excellent Schools

Prattville lies within Autauga County Schools, one of the highest rated public school systems in the state. Naturally, this makes Prattville an ideal destination for families with school-aged children.

4. Convenient to Maxwell AFB

With Maxwell Air Force Base located just minutes away, Prattville is a favored choice for military personnel living off base who prefer a quieter alternative to busy Montgomery. Lowder New Homes also offers special incentives for members of the armed forces desiring to buy a new construction home in Prattville.

5. Highly Affordable

Suburban living has its benefits, in more ways than one. Even while being one of the area’s hotter home markets, Prattville still enjoys relatively low median home prices compared to other parts of Greater Montgomery. This means your construction dollars can go farther here than they would elsewhere, and you can get more home for the money.

Lowder New Homes is pleased to be a preferred builder in Hedgefield, one of Prattville’s newest and most desirable new subdivisions, with homes starting in the low $200s. To learn more about availability, give us a call at 334-270-6789.
