Community Events Popular Selling Factor with New Home Buyers

Lanscaped view of The Springs at Sterling on the Lake by Stonecrest HomesChoosing a new home can be a daunting task, so it is important to do a little background research before making a full commitment. What is your potential new community like after the sun goes down? What is the commute going to be like? Are there any area activities, or even community events? The availability of community events and activities is becoming a focus for home builders and potential new home buyers as well. Many new home communities increasingly promote getting to know neighbors and offer multiple opportunities throughout the year, some even monthly, for community socializing.

This can be especially helpful for families with children who are able to make friends with other children in the neighborhood and stay closer to home and safer. Older adults may also appreciate the luxury of living in a community where there are many events like game nights, luncheons and social clubs, as this reduces the need for driving and can help add structure to the day.

Potential homeowners looking for a new home in the Atlanta area should tour large master-planned communities like Sterling on the Lake. In addition to offering a variety of home designs like the single-level home plans built by Stonecrest Homes,  and resort-style amenities like the 75-acres of lakes around the community, a community clubhouse with swimming pool, a village green, children’s playground, Lakeside Pavilion, Recreation Center and more, this community also boasts a robust activities calendar. A sampling for the month of July includes daily fitness classes for residents and the public, yoga classes, a community swim team, water aerobics classes, weekly luncheons held by the ROMEO Lunch Group at the community clubhouse, and Little Sprouts Music Hour for children.

There are move-in ready homes currently available in The Springs area of Sterling on the Lake. Living in The Springs puts homeowners in the heart of the community and just steps from all of the fun community activities.

Stonecrest Homes Featured in Builder Magazine

Stonecrest HomesLast month, Builder Magazine featured Stonecrest Homes in an article about builders that have survived and grown in this weak market. In the article, titled “One Step Ahead,” author John Caulfield explained how Stonecrest Homes is not the average startup.

Caulfield wrote, “Starting a home building enterprise in Atlanta, where permits are down more than 80 percent from 2007, might seem like a suicide mission,” wrote Caulfield. “But Stonecrest Homes, with highly computerized operations and a laser focus on market research, isn’t your average startup.”

Stonecrest Homes started in the spring of 2010 and has grown steadily. Starting with 10 communities, the builder has added four more this year for a total of 14.

“Stonecrest owes its success to market research, reputation, focus on operations and not deals, customer service and partnerships including one with EquityLock Solutions,” stated Jim Chapman, co-owner and CFO of Stonecrest Homes.

The partnership with EquityLock Solutions allows the builder to offer Home Price Protection™ to buyers. Home Price Protection™ is a real estate market protection contract that gives homeowners a financial return if their local House Price Index, as reported by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, is lower at the time of sale than when the contract was purchased.

Stonecrest Homes offers 13 floor plans that range from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet. Homes range in price from $150,000 to $500,000 and are located in several communities in Cherokee, Cobb, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry and Houston Counties.
