Are you considering buying a brand new house in one of the new home communities in the Santa Maria and Orcutt area?
If so, I’ve got some great news for you. There are several quality new housing construction projects available with some very nice product. The fact that these new houses are still available for sale is a statement of the strength of the builders and their ability to make it through some tough economic times. It is likely that they will be around in the future to back their product.
Lately I have been spending quite a bit of time putting together a Guide to New Homes on the Central Coast. I wasn’t able to find one source of information that compares the new construction projects, their amenities and prices, so I put one together myself . Now buyers who are considering a new home can start by seeing an overview of their options. I have researched and become familiar with the new home builders and the new homes for sale and I am happy to share this information with clients. There are several options throughout the Central Coast, and today I’d like to focus on the ones in Orcutt, outside of Santa Maria’s city limits.
Rice Ranch Community – In many ways, I see these homes as Orcutt’s future. Their master plan is to have 755 homes in 5 different neighborhoods built out over 350 acres in the beautiful foothills of Orcutt. Currently they are building two neighborhoods, the Oaks and Pine Creek, which have various floor plans available starting at $435,000 and up. Western Pacific Land Group is the excellent builder on this project.
Old Mill – This project is located behind Foxenwoods Estates in Orcutt. They offer a small community of only 54 homes, from 3 -5 bedroom homes starting in the mid $400,000. I love the location which is within walking distance to charming, Old Town Orcutt. Capital Pacific, another excellent builder, is behind the Old Mill project, which offers single and two story floor plans.
Enclave at Harp Springs – This is a 44 homes development with less than 10 homes left at the time of this writing. They have an awesome setting overlooking an oak-studded valley. There are beautiful views from every home and very nice floor plans. Capital Pacific is the builder for this project too. Home prices start in the low $500,000.
If you are just starting your search, you may be interested in learning more about my Rebate Program for New Home Buyers in addition to seeing my New Home Guide. I am offering to share a percentage of my commission with new home buyers who allow me to represent them in the negotiation and purchase of their new home. I have a great deal of experience in this area and may be able to help you get a better price and more upgrades. Plus you’ll get a generous check as a rebate once you close escrow on the sale. Some restrictions apply, so make sure you check out the New Home Rebate Program before you start visiting any of the projects.
