The PAIHomes Difference

“Good Design can make a difference – but Great Design will change your life.”

 

There is more than one type of value in a PAIHomes. The PAIhomes difference brings a superb value to one’s quality of life but there is an extra hidden value in a PAIHomes that most are unaware of. At PAI we strive not only to create designs that are fresh and innovative but that also reflect both the personality and lifestyle of our client. This special design process involves a lot of interaction between designers/architects and the client. In these meetings, the PAI professionals can get a true feel for the clients’ day to day needs as well as their dreams for their new or renovated residence. This very personal process will culminate in a plan that the client’s are proud to call home and most importantly will love to live in. As one long time client has said – “You create the “X” factor in design”. Not only will PAIHomes change your life, but it will almost certainly increase your real estate values. Two recent PAI projects illustrate the importance of high quality design in selling a home in a soft real estate market. An independent builder was in the final stages of erecting a custom design PAI home in the Short Hills area. The builder was approached by perspective buyers, a family out looking for a home, who wanted to make an offer for the house even though the sheetrock and finishing were incomplete. While touring the house, the perspective buyer said that the “design stood alone” and they knew that they would love the completed home. This home sold before the interior trim was in place.

Another design project was to take a 1950’s everyday ranch and do a complete redesign. The original wish of the client was to add two additional bedrooms, a playroom and a library. The PAI team used their creative design abilities to create a finished home containing all the interior elements that the client wished for as well as an exterior that looked like an older historic home. The total redesign of this home from bland and featureless to a home with “personality” was a great success. Recently this client decided to put this home up for sale. In a truly soft market, a bidding war erupted even before the house was formally listed. We are also thrilled that this client has signed on with PAI to design and build a new country estate with guesthouse and barn.

Of the many homes PAI has designed or redesigned, these two homes were the first to go on the market as resales. As exhibited in both of these scenarios, the power of great design will definitely change your quality of life and most certainly improve your real estate values. The investment in designing a home from scratch or renovating with a PAIHomes will be returned both by the marvelous quality of life in a dream home as well as the future financial benefits of increased real estate values was approached by perspective buyers.
