by racheal

Villas de Avila New Home CommunityThese days, customization is the name of the game. That’s the case whether we’re talking about shoes, sunglasses or new homes. No one wants a home that looks like everyone else’s; those days are long over. Fortunately, many builders offer buyers the opportunity to customize their new homes by selecting from materials at an in-house design center.

Pacific Coast Communities is one such builder. At their Villas de Avila neighborhood, buyers can choose their own materials at the design center – and we’re not just talking about flooring (although that’s part of it!). In fact, you can choose from countless options for customizing your new home. These range from room configurations to a wide variety of floor and window covering options. Take a look at what’s available:

-  Electrical options
-  Security systems & home theatre
-  Computer wiring to your specifications
-  Custom cabinets
-  Built in media/entertainment
-  Slab granite counter tops
-  Carpets, both luxury and traditional
-  Stone or tile floor covering, imported or domestic
-  Wood flooring, casual and formal options
-  Custom shutters
-  Exquisite window coverings

As you can see, your options for customizing one of these Chula Vista new homes are practically endless. It’s just one more reason Villas de Avila is enticing buyers throughout San Diego County.

Let the professional design consultants at Villas de Avila new homes show you these options in a friendly, comfortable setting. Stop in to the community at 1556 Corte Barcelona, Chula Vista, CA 91913 or call (619) 565-2635 for more information.

Avalon at Otay Ranch: Chula Vista Townhomes for Families

by racheal

Avalon Community New Townhomes

Today’s buyers are practical; they know it’s smart to stick to a home that’s the size you need and the price you can afford. For that reason, townhomes are growing rapidly in popularity. Even at upscale, master planned communities like Otay Ranch, buyers are excited about townhome options in neighborhoods like Avalon. Avalon at Otay Ranch is an enclave of charming townhomes with new one and two-story floorplans ranging from approximately 1,163 to 1,621 square feet. They offer buyers a choice of 2 and 3 bedrooms. These aren’t just for singles and downsizers; Avalon is for growing families as well.

In fact, Avalon schools are part of the Chula Vista Elementary and Sweetwater Union High School District. Great schools, a great neighborhood, and a home you can enjoy with features like master suites, front porches and separate dining areas (sounds more like a house than a townhome, doesn’t it?). That’s what the Sunrise Company had in mind when they designed Avalon at Otay Ranch.

There’s a new phase at Avalon at Otay Ranch, and a new crop of buyers is taking advantage of a fall move-in now. If you’re interested in these Chula Vista townhomes, now is the time to inquire! To do this, visit the Otay Ranch Welcome Center, call (619) 397-5890, or email

Wayne Homes Akron Presents Alexandria

by racheal

Virtual Tour of the Alexandria ModelAre you looking for Ohio new homes that embody the spirit of the Midwest? The Alexandria model, one of the most popular Akron new homes of Wayne Homes, may be exactly what you need. Picture this: Entering your front door after a long day’s work, and stepping into your foyer. To your right, your study area beckons; but rather than sitting down to check emails in this comfy space, you opt to soak in your sunken tub for an hour before preparing a meal for the family to enjoy in the formal dining room later. If this is how you prefer to spend your evenings, Alexandria may be right for you.

The versatility of this flexible four bedroom home is what makes it so popular, along with its master suite. Want to “get to know” a new home first by seeing it in person? Feel free to visit our Ashland model center to take a look at the model first hand, or stop in one of our many open houses.

As you wait for the next Wayne Homes open house to take place, you can take a virtual tour of the Alexandria model here, or view the Alexandria plan page. When you’re ready to ask questions, the Wayne Homes Akron office can be reached at 3859 Eastern Road Norton, OH, 44203 or by calling (866) 768-0413.

Monet at Otay Ranch Gives You an Affordable Coastal Home

by racheal

Many people are under the impression that the closer they get to the coast, the less affordable their homebuying options are. In some places, this may be true; but at Otay Ranch, one of the best known master planned communities in Southern California, many homes are actually becoming more affordable. One good example of these affordable homes is Monet, located in the Village of Hillsborough in Otay Ranch.

The surroundings of Monet are almost as pleasant as the lily pond impressions crafted by its name sake; it has white picket fences, private courtyards, porches and French Country architecture. And as stated, it is just as affordable as many of its inland counterparts. Buyers can purchase a home in the final phase of Monet starting from $199,900, which is far below the median new home price in San Diego County. What do you get for the money? Here is what the homes of Monet offer:

Residence 1
1000 Square Ft / 2 Bedrooms / 2 Baths / 1 Car Garage

Residence 2
1362 Square Ft / 3 Bedrooms / 2.5 Baths / 1 Car Garage

Residence 3
1368 Square Ft / 3 Bedrooms / 2.5 Baths /  2 Car Garage

Pacific Coast Communities recently had a blowout sale on many of its Monet homes, so there may only be a few left available for purchase. Now is the time to act if you’re serious about these affordable homes in San Diego County. Call (619) 421-6079 to speak with a Monet representative, or see the homes in person at 1424 Water Lily Drive, Chula Vista, CA 91913.

Santa Rita at Otay Ranch uses Fire-Resistant Building Wood

by racheal

Santa Rita New Homes

With wildfire season upon us, home buyers may be more skeptical about any factor of homebuying that pertains to fire risk, primarily location, structural quality and building materials. Is there a home building wood that can help protect the home from significant fire damage? Fortunately, there is. It’s Ecoblu wood, treated with proprietary Eco Red Shield™ - and it’s used to make the homes of Santa Rita at Otay Ranch.

The Santa Rita builder, Heritage Building & Development, was sold on this innovative material after it was proven to “significantly slows ignition and reduces smoke produced during a fire.” According to Heritage, Eco Red Shield™ Protected Lumber is a major breakthrough in lumber protection – and in fact, a major breakthrough in building with lumber as a whole. How does it work?

This revolutionary wood coating protects lumber by impregnating it with chemical solids that control moisture and protect the wood from mold, fire, termites and wood-rot. For Santa Rita at Otay Ranch, a community that truly understands the meaning of “home,” owners can rest assured that the place where their families nurture their dreams has an extra layer of protection. It’s not a guarantee, but it is added peace of mind.

For more details on the new homes at Santa Rita at Otay Ranch, visit the community at 1712 Thompson Ave., Chula Vista, CA 92913, or call (619) 934-7950.
