Tuscan Lakes Prospers and Welcomes New Builders

Housing recession?!  Not in Tuscan Lakes!  Experts claim the housing market is struggling due to the economy, but Johnson Development’s master-planned community Tuscan Lakes is prospering.  Home sales have risen 45% since last year during this same time period, and nationally-recognized builders have chosen Tuscan Lakes, the only master-planned community in the Bay Area, for their home building sites.

Tuscan Lakes is proud to now offer homes by four prestigious builders:  KB Home, D.R. Horton Homes, CastleRock Communities and Harwood Homes.  KB Home has been named the “World’s Most Admired Homebuilder” by Fortune Magazine in 2009, 2008 and 2006.  KB is building in Tuscan Lakes’ Sovana neighborhood with prices from the $140,000’s.  D.R. Horton is the nation’s second-largest builder delivering more homes to customers than any other home builder in the United States.  Prices for D.R. Horton Homes start from the $170,000’s.  CastleRock Communities is an award-winning local builder whose expertise includes construction of single-family homes, town homes, custom homes and mid-rise properties.  CastleRock homes in Tuscan Lakes are available from the $200,000’s.  Harwood Homes has been building homes in Texas for over 25 years, and they are recognized for their excellent overall value.  Harwood Homes’ starting prices for in Tuscan Lakes are in the $300,000’s. 
“Having these prestigious builders is an incredible opportunity for first-time and move-up buyers alike,” said Bob Douglas, General Manager of Tuscan Lakes. “The vast range of prices expands buyer’s options in the community.  However, buyers should take advantage of this opportunity quickly, as there is a limited supply of home sites and response has been – and continues to be – strong.”
The four new builders will join an already prestigious group of home builders in Tuscan Lakes that includes CastleRock, D.R. Horton, Harwood, KB Home, Meritage and Newmark.  With multiple builders and an expansive range of prices, the Tuscan Lakes’ community is able to offer residents a wide array of options.  “Bringing in four new builders is a great opportunity for Tuscan Lakes,” said Douglas.  “With so many options and price ranges, prospective home buyers will be able to find the perfect home that fits their budget and lifestyle.”
