BEAUMONT, CA September 24, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Just 13 years ago, Pardee Homes introduced Sundance to the Inland Empire, bringing new, attainably priced homes to Beaumont. The first 100 homes were sold in 100 days and from there the community kept growing offering residents neighborhood schools, parks and a community designed to bring quality living to many families. Ideally located along the I-10 corridor, the community's central proximity to commercial centers, prominent regional parks and lakes, and fabulous shopping at Desert Hills Premium Outlets have helped grow the city of Beaumont and make the Sundance master-planned community a success.
Why Beaumont? It's a thriving city that has maintained its small, home town feel. The city, which celebrated its centennial in 2012, provides rustic, rural beauty and charm, combined with successful, on-going growth, abundant recreational opportunities and rich community life. This picturesque city of over 40,000 sits at 2,612 feet in elevation between Riverside and Palm Springs in the Inland Empire. The population grew in 2015 by 3.5 percent, making it among the fastest growing cities in all California according to data by the California Department of Finance. Beaumont was fourth on a list of the state's '10 Fastest Growing Cities with Populations over 30,000' last year.
According to Core Logic, the number of homes sold in the County has increased 2.4% over last year. Housing prices rose on average by 6.5%.
"We've seen housing prices on the rise in Riverside County and an increase of sales over last year yet we have maintained our focus providing housing that accommodates all lifestyles, including neighborhoods that appeal to first-time buyers," said Mike Taylor, division president of Pardee Homes. "Our newest neighborhood of 98 homes, Elara which opened for sale July 30th , appeals to young families and first-time buyers with pricing from the high $200,000s. Smart, comfortable two-story floorplans have up to four bedrooms and a host of energy-saving features and options. This is our third new home neighborhood to open this year at Sundance in Beaumont."
Beaumont has 16 parks, including a 20-acre sports park and a municipal pool, as well as an extensive trail system. The Beaumont Unified School District, with 10 schools, has an outstanding reputation and it ranks highly in the Pass Area. According to the City of Beaumont's website, over $26 million has been spent on widening and improving the major streets and bridges in the city since incorporation. New businesses are finding their way among many established retailers and services, including Aldi, a growing supermarket chain, which opened in March of this year.
Major commerce centers in Beaumont are located at the intersection of I-10, Highway 60 and Highway 79 with strong growth projected to occur over several more decades according to the City website. Local government is business friendly and public safety is of the highest quality, emphasizing education and crime prevention. Major crimes in Beaumont have declined since 2000, despite doubling in population. Three new police officers joined the Beaumont Police Department in April of this year.
And with all that in mind, the City's most prominent homebuilder, Pardee Homes, remains invested in Beaumont with an abundance of new home choices for families of every size.
"In addition to building great homes, we understand that great communities are rich with parks, playgrounds, convenient shopping and of course, good schools," said Matt Sauls vice president of marketing and product development for Pardee Homes. "We are committed to creating a truly livable environment, with exciting new home choices that fulfill the dreams of future Sundance families. Along with that, comes the civic responsibility of providing recreational opportunities and support to the schools and organizations that serve our homebuyers."
Master-planned Sundance was ranked among the top 50 'Best Selling Master-Planned Communities' in the country last year according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting. Sundance continues to amaze and delight home shoppers who are discovering their dream home among a myriad of choices. Last year 263 homes were sold at Sundance.

Both parks have tot lots, a basketball court, a covered pavilion with picnic tables and barbecues and expansive grassy open space. The Albert A. Chatigny, Sr. Community Recreation Center is within walking distance of many homes at Sundance and includes a childcare facility, multi-purpose gymnasium, theatre stage and meeting rooms. The Highlands Club, located in the The Highlands Village at Sundance and for use exclusively by the neighborhoods of Northstar, Skycrest, Lunetta and Flagstone, includes a beach entry pool, tot lot, barbeque area and spa.
