Trilogy at Vistancia to Open New Neighborhood

November 5, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Trilogy at Vistancia remains my favorite active adult community in the Valley.  When I do a walk-through of a new home in Trilogy, I’m consistently impressed with the quality of construction.  With many builders, I leave a walk-through looking like a blue-tape blizzard has blown through, due to so many quality control issues.  I’ve done walk-throughs with Shea Homes where we haven’t even torn one strip from the blue tape roll.  Just amazing!

Equally impressive are Trilogy customer support and onsite staff.  They’re helpful to my buyers and responsive to needs after close of escrow.  Every time I accompany them on a tour of Trilogy’s amenities, I learn something new.

As an obvious fan of Trilogy at Vistancia, I was pleased to receive the following email from one of the Sales Staff notifying me of a new parcel release:

I hope this email finds you well.  I wanted to give you a quick update on our Trilogy at Vistancia community in Peoria Arizona.  I am very excited to share we are days away from opening our next neighborhood Desert Bloom aka Parcel C-12.   This quaint neighborhood will have approximately 99 home sites and will be released in phases.  The first phase we will release home sites 1582 through 1622.  Please let me know if you have a client who you think may have an interest – if so, highlight the specific lot of interest and I will be more than happy to provide more information!

Sales will commence on Saturday, November 17, 2012.  While I am not anticipating needing a drawing, you just never know.  So, should we have more than one individual interested in the same lot we will have a drawing for that specific lot to determine who has the first opportunity to purchase the home site.  If a drawing is necessary it will be held on Saturday morning, November 17th, 2012.  The party drawn who has the first opportunity to purchase that specific lot will have 4 hours to execute a purchase contract.  Should they fail to execute a purchase contract in the 4 hour window then the 2nd interested party will have the same 4 hours to execute and so on until the lot is sold.

I have included a copy of the new neighborhood map for Desert Bloom at Trilogy (Parcel C-12) below for your reference.  I also included a copy of the overall Trilogy community map so that you can see where this new neighborhood is located within Trilogy.  The location is spectacular – in the heart of the community and extremely close to the Kiva Club.  We saved the best for last – this will be your clients last opportunity to enjoy a new home in a premier location!!

Here’s an updated price list (remember — BASE PRICES ONLY — no lot premiums or personal upgrades):

 

A couple of important points to remember when you consider purchasing a new home.  Most importantly, don’t EVER contact a new home builder directly until your Realtor has registered you.  Otherwise, the builder will not allow you to work with your Buyer’s Agent.  Furthermore, the builder will require you to sign a disclosure that says you understand and agree that the builder’s agent ONLY represents the BUILDER, not you!

For many considering Phoenix real estate, new homes are an attractive option.  Call or email if you have any questions at all!  I can help you evaluate new home subdivisions across the Valley and compare prices with resale homes in the same communities, which are often available.

Phoenix builders acquiring lots – anticipate continued market recovery

September 4, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

As further evidence that the Phoenix real estate market is in full recovery, many homebuilders are aggressively expanding their land holdings in anticipation of continued recovery.

As noted in the Arizona Republic, Taylor Morrison Homes of Arizona, for example, has already purchased 700 lots in 2012,  has contracts on 1,000 more, and is seeking additional opportunities in Maricopa County.

The builder has communities under construction in the East Valley, but the current focus is on North Valley locations, such as Lone Mountain, Vistancia, Terramar, and parts of Scottsdale.

Charlie Enochs, Division President of Taylor Morrison Arizona, expects the builder to build twice as many homes in 2012 as it did in 2011.

Taylor Morrison isn’t alone.  The City of Scottsdale recently reported a 52% increase in building permits issued over the previous fiscal year.

The uptick in construction activity is a function of resale inventory scarcity, frustration over short sale logistics and waiting periods, and aggressive incentives offered by homebuilders.

From my perspective, it’s refreshing to drive through new home subdivisions and see and hear the hustle and bustle of construction.  For a few years, construction came to a virtual halt.  In fact, in some parts of the Valley you can still see skeletons of subdivisions abandoned mid-build, victims of the housing bust and weak economy.

Considering a new home in Phoenix or Scottsdale?  I have helped many buyers save money by representing them on their new home purchases.  In fact, purchasing a new home without dedicated Realtor representation can cost you big time!

Builders resume construction…

In perhaps the strongest sign yet that the bottom may indeed be here, several homebuilders have resumed construction of projects that were formally abandoned prior to completion.
