Fear No More!
All around Atlanta you see “PVC Farms”. Those abandoned subdivisions with green and white PVC pipes ‘growing’ in them. Subdivisions that began in the bubble, but dried up in the bust. Thousands of homeowners are living in them, wondering what will happen to their investment; worried that they too might lose. It creates a fear in the new home buyer that they too could end up in a PVC farm; an abandoned, unfinished neighborhood.
While the fear is real, there are ways to find confidence in buying a new home. One great way is to buy during the last phase of the development. Windsong Properties has such a development: Somerset in Woodstock. Somerset is a gated, 55+ Community situated in the equestrian district of Towne Lake, just off I-575. The subdivision began 3 years ago and has seen only a mild slowdown through the real estate downfall. With 46 homes currently built and occupied and 5 under construction;, Somerset has only 9 remaining.
Somerset’s amenities, including a 2500sqft clubhouse, gated entrance and community greenspace have already been completed. Walkable sidewalks and the first finishing layer of pavement are already down as well. With a well established homeowners group, Somerset has become a vibrant Active Adult Community. There are monthly get-togethers; Saturday shopping trips, exercise groups and many other social opportunities already on the calendar.
Somerset features single story ranch homes with private courtyards. Built to Earthcraft specifications, the Somerset homes are energy efficient and comfortable. With lever handles on all the doors, easy access entries, hard wood floors and step-in showers, Somerset upholds the standard set forth by the Easy Living program. The quality construction and craftsmanship shows in these homes.
So, with only 9 remaining and sales momentum going strong, Somerset is a great place to buy an new home and bypass the fear of the PVC Farm! For more information, please visit the Windsong website or contact Micki at 770-516-3678
