A Northwind Update

Posted By on February 10, 2010

As so often occurs in the construction industry, our brand new model home is a bit behind schedule because the construction of the vacant lots took a bit longer than anticipated.  But have no fear! We are now applying for permits for our brand new Salvadore model home, coming this spring to our Northwind community in Northside.

At this point in time, the best guess for a grand-opening will be in late April.  We’re currently exploring solar panel options for this model, and our goal is going to have a net-zero cost operating home.  Stay posted for more on that as well.

Another update for those of you who were looking forward to the official Northwind lot draw, we have decided to cancel this lot draw for various reasons, mostly because the timing would have postponed the construction of customer-sold homes. We wanted to allow our customers the opportunity to pick their lots so they could move forward with picking the color selections on their own Potterhill home….and to wait for the lot construction to be finished in order to do this would have put that about 2 months behind.  Additionally, we wanted to make sure these customers were sure to close on their new homes by June 30th in order to qualify for the homebuyer tax credits.

The community is still doing very well in terms of pre-sales, and 5 customers have picked their lots and are moving forward with color selections etc.  Average price at this point in time is about $193,000, although prices in this community do start in the $130’s.  While you wouldn’t necessarily need to spend that much on upgrades in your new Potterhill home at Northwind, homebuyers have been selecting some great green features like Hardie Panel siding, geothermal heating & cooling, and LEED certification.

If you are interested in information on Northwind, please contact Vicki Painter at 513-616-9396 (but you had better wait until next week because Vicki is in Mexico this week on vacation & visiting an orphanage with some treats for the kids while on her journey).

We look forward to the grand opening & will keep you posted so you can be sure to join us!
