Steps to Finding a New Home: Crosby Villas Simplifies It

by racheal

Crosby Villas New Home Community

So, you want to buy a new home. That’s great; but first, you need to choose a new home builder. The San Diego new homes specialists of California West Communities, the brains behind such popular communities as Crosby Villas, simplifies the process with the following steps:

Choose a location: But not just any location. Crosby Villas consultants recommend, “Choose a location that has the amenities, schools and overall environment that you feel comfortable in. You may want to visit several places at different times of the day, and even talk to local residents to get a feel for the area.” Good advice!

Determine your needs: And of course, the needs of your family. The experts tell us, “…Look at home size and what the needs of your family are, and can you afford to live there. Does the floorplan flow and fit your family's lifestyle?” Oh yes, price! That’s always an important factor too.

Check them out: The homebuilder, that is. Are they in good standing in the area? According to Crosby Villas consultants, “You want a homebuilder who has a reputation for quality, craftsmanship and is there with you through every step of the homebuying process.” Checking local news stories (or national, if it is a national builder) to be sure they are free from scandal is a good way to be sure this builder does its job right.

The, the real fun begins! Home “shopping” through attractively decorated models is the most exciting part – and often, the part that leads to you determining which builder will create your new home. For more information, the Rancho Santa Fe new homes at Crosby Villas can be viewed by appointment. Call (858) 759-7911 Monday noon to 5 pm, or Tuesday through Sunday 10 am to 5 pm to request details.

What are CC&Rs? Madison Lane Homebuying Experts Explain

by racheal

Madison Lane New Homes in San Diego

If you’re new to the world of homeowner associations, you may have questions regarding some inside vernacular – for example, CC&Rs. What are CC&Rs, exactly? Homebuying experts at Madison Lane, a California West Communities development, break it down like this:

“They (CCRs) are covenants, conditions and restrictions. It is a document that governs how homeowner associations operate and what rules a homeowner must abide. They usually include architectural and landscaping guidelines for improvements and changes to your home and yard, rules for use of shared areas, including recreation facilities.”

For many homeowners, CC&Rs are regarded as one of the necessary evils of ownership in a planned community. But in reality, the Madison Lane experts explain, CC&Rs can be an effective tool for owners who treat their home as an investment. “These guidelines and rules can help maintain the value of your property and community as a whole,” they explain.

In other words, they help ensure that your neighbors keep their lawns mowed, their roofs in good condition, and their homes painted a pleasant color – so that when you eventually sell, you can list your home at the most favorable price possible. CC&Rs don’t sound so bad anymore, do they?

New Home or Resale? Andalusia at 4s Ranch Answers

by racheal

Andalusia New Homes in Carlsbad - CA

In today’s uncertain economic climate, many buyers are abandoning the new home market and opting for resale homes instead. Surprisingly, this may not always be the best decision. California West Communities, the homebuilding powerhouse behind communities of San Diego new homes like Andalusia at 4s Ranch, tells us why:

“There are several good reasons for choosing a new home…New homes are designed for the way we live today, using the newest construction materials, energy-efficient considerations, livable floorplans and features such as great rooms and spacious master suites.

You'll have access to professional advisors along the way. And your home is all ready when you move in – with a warranty.”

Andalusia at 4s Ranch - Kitchen

This may be true; but aren’t new homes more expensive? Not exactly, at least if you think with a long-term viewpoint. Consider the following: A new home is likely to save you thousands, perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands, of dollars over the long run in terms of repairs, renovations, and upgrades. Let’s face it: The romantic notion of a fixer-upper is hardly practical in today’s economy, even for affluent buyers.
