LOS ANGELES, CA, October 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Sales are surging at Fair Oaks Ranch in the Santa Clarita Valley, as new home shoppers make their move to secure one of the excellent choices Pardee Homes
offers at LivingSmart Homes and Crest View. "We're seeing an increase in sales here in recent months," said Gary Probert, senior vice president of sales for Pardee Homes. "The sense of urgency in the new home market may be even stronger with our shoppers because they know they are looking at the final two neighborhoods at Fair Oaks Ranch."
From the low $400,000s, LivingSmart Homes'
versatile designs have approximately 1,846 to 2,432 square feet of living space. Price-included green features help the homes meet the Gold level of the National Green Building Standard. From the $500,000s, the Crest View
new homes provide approximately 3,099 to 3,960 square feet of living space, with optional layouts and desirable customizing choices.
Distinctive designs, price-included solar power systems and "location, location, location" are among the sales drivers Pardee Homes notes at Fair Oaks Ranch. "We can say many good things about these homes and this community," said Joyce Mason, vice president of marketing for Pardee Homes. "Our buyers say it even better!"
An area Realtor neatly summarizes his Fair Oaks Ranch purchase decision. "The community, the views, the area, the good schools--it was all here," says Tim Burns, who moved from Granada Hills with his wife Mayet and their two daughters.
--Start with schools
, priority #1 for many at Fair Oaks Ranch. Within the community is Fair Oaks Ranch Community School. Also convenient are La Mesa Junior High and Golden Valley High School, as well as College of the Canyons and California Institute of the Arts.
"It meant a lot to find a California Distinguished School right here in the community for our 6-year old daughter," said Sergio Gonzalez, who moved from the Chicago area to Fair Oaks Ranch with his wife Hanh and their three children.
Whether on Metrolink or the freeway, commuters like Fair Oaks Ranch too. "Mayet works nights, as do two other family members here at Fair Oaks Ranch," said Tim. "They take turns carpooling and that is definitely a help in the commuting picture."
Also close by are shopping, dining, entertainment and services. "Everything we need is either right here at Fair Oaks Ranch or within a short drive," said Mayet. "With the kids in local schools, we have even less traveling to do--this location simply could not be better."
--A hiking and walking trail highlight a wealth of recreational opportunities at Fair Oaks Ranch
. Especially prized is The Ranch at Fair Oaks, a family-friendly oasis with Junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, furnished deck, a barbecue with seating areas, children's water features and a large common room.
Fair Oaks Ranch Park has a picnic pavilion, barbecues, basketball court, equipped play areas, walking paths and restrooms. "My son can play basketball, people are always out walking the track and this is a great place to meet people," said Patty Lara, who moved here from Lancaster with her husband Carlos and their four children.
"You know, to live in a place where you see people out and about, stopping to greet you and taking time with their kids, is really awesome," she added. "Fair Oaks Ranch is like things were when we grew up, and we love it!"
--Pardee Homes' LivingSmart
brand provides some 30 included and optional resource-conserving materials and systems that help with utility costs, year-around comfort and indoor air quality. Opting for the upgraded solar power system, the Laras report electric bills of about $25 monthly. Said Carlos, "This is with our Jacuzzi , which gets a constant work out because we do, too--the whole family is involved with fitness, whether it's running, dance, bicycling, sports or the gym."
"Pardee's eco-friendly program was huge to us," said Hanh. "Solar power, low-E windows, air quality features--it just makes sense. Why not save money on your heating and air conditioning and water bills?"
"Who doesn't want to save money, and who doesn't want to do what they can to save our environment?" added Patty. "The long run matters to us, and we really respect Pardee's commitment to eco-friendly home building."
--Whether discussing their home's size, layout or special touches, Fair Homes Ranch homebuyers like the design and built quality of their Crest View and LivingSmart Homes.
Buying new was important to Tim and Mayet. "Our older home was a good home, but you find they always need a little extra work--which translates to extra expense," said Tim. "You can tell just by touring the models that Pardee takes a great deal of pride in building a good home," he said.
"We watched the construction at LivingSmart Homes, and what we saw was cleanliness and safety," said Patty. "Our feeling was that if the builder is being careful of the area and the environment, then they are going to be careful in the way they build our home. And we were right."
--These buyers also applaud the team at Pardee Homes that works to make the purchase and move-in process a rewarding experience. "We cannot say enough good things about Mike Carrillo as our construction superintendent, and about Robbin Heath and Lexi Perez, our sales representatives," said Kumar Doshi, who purchased with his wife Kavita at LivingSmart Homes. "We could really feel and appreciate what a difference their knowledge, courtesy and interest in our satisfaction made as we went through the whole process."
"I hope someone who reads this story and thinks they can't buy a home will check into Pardee Homes," Patty added. "I will be delighted if our story helps someone else get the new home they want!"
In addition to excellent financing with Linear Financial, buyers with Pardee Homes can consider the "Smart Move Advantage" program, which provides qualified buyers up to three years of rental income on their existing home. This program is offered through an independent company, exclusively for Pardee homebuyers.
Pardee Homes offers generous broker co-op. Brokers must accompany prospective buyers on the initial visit to a Pardee Homes neighborhood.
