WEST DES MOINES, IOWA (January 26, 2017) – As the Des Moines real estate market sits poised for a busy spring, Hubbell Homes is opening two new, state-of-the-art Design Studios in West Des Moines and Des Moines.

“The Design Studios have everything buyers need to customize their new home all under one roof,” said Rachel Flint, Vice President of Hubbell Homes. “They will be able to easily choose finishes and color choices so that their home truly reflects them and their style.”

The Hubbell Homes Design Studios feature product samples to allow homebuyers to select customizable components of their home, including flooring, cabinetry, paint, lighting and plumbing fixtures. Each Design Studio presents two staged kitchens and a master bathroom to show off featured collections, while buyers can browse the selections gallery and exteriors gallery for additional product choices. From countertops to carpet and everything in between, new homeowners will be able to both view and choose everything they need for their new home. The Design Studio Manager is available for each customer to make selections that fit their needs and price points all while keeping the overall design perspective in mind.

“The spring market typically brings a high level of activity, and I don’t expect 2017 to be any different,” said Kelly Gibson, New Homes Manager at Iowa Realty. “The builders are well prepared and inventory levels are where they should be. I expect the new Hubbell Homes Design Studios to add enormous value in the ease, efficiency and enjoyment to the building process for new homebuyers.”

Hubbell Homes is celebrating the grand opening of the two new Design Studios with an open house from 1-4 pm Saturday and Sunday at the Greenway Crossing location at 8850 University Ave. Suite 102 in West Des Moines. The public is invited to tour the Design Studio and learn more about building a new custom home with Hubbell Homes. Buyers who purchase a Hubbell Home between now and March 1, 2017, will receive $500 to use for upgrades at the Design Studio.

“A great deal of thought was put into the space to showcase all that Hubbell Homes can offer,” said Hubbell Homes Design Studio Manager Stacey McDonald. “Real estate agents who visited the existing Design Studio at Woodland Hills will be surprised to see how the space has been transformed to better serve our homebuyers, and the new West Des Moines location is conveniently located to all the growth happening in the western suburbs.”

The Hubbell Homes Design Studios was professionally designed in conjunction with Success Strategies, a national design studio expert and marketing consultant for home builders. The company has won 20 National Awards for Best Design Center in the Country from the National Association of Home Builders’ National Sales and Marketing Council. Success Strategies has worked with builders in more than 120 housing markets throughout North America and is the leading expert in creating state-of-the-art design studios.

“We’ve worked hard to assemble a variety of high-quality home products that will fit within any budget and complement all lifestyles,” Flint said. “With the new Design Studios, we can provide our homebuyers more choices and more ease in creating their dream home.”

The Hubbell Homes Design Studios feature two locations: The Design Studio Des Moines is located at Woodland Hills at 1220 NE 66th Ave. in Des Moines, and the Design Studio West is in Greenway Crossing at 8850 University Ave. Suite 102 in West Des Moines. An expert designer is available by appointment at 515-402-6743 to walk buyers through the selections process at the Design Studios.
