I hate to be the one to say it…but summer is coming to an end. You will soon be swapping out your afternoons outdoors for some cozier time inside your home. With that time indoors is usually when you might realize different ‘projects’ that you would like to do in your home. Maybe it’s the functionality of your kitchen or you are tired of the wall colour, but in the end, this is what makes some homeowners ready for change. So for this week’s blog we thought we would entice you to embrace the fall market by sharing our top reasons why now is a great time to build a Cedarglen Home.
Reason #1: Interest Rates
Since 2015, interest rates are the lowest that we have seen in 30 years. Why not take advantage of the low rates by purchasing a new home. Cedarglen Homes recommends that you should get a pre-approval upfront so that you know what price point you should be looking at. Here is a look at what RBC suggests for first-time homebuyers.
Reason # 2: Uncompromised Standards
Industry standards are often basic guidelines to what you deserve in a home. At Cedarglen Homes, we build beyond the industry standard giving you superior quality and results. This year we launched our EnerGuide 80 initiative which offers home buyers the opportunity to invest in efficiency, health, and value within your home. EnerGuide is the official label from the Government of Canada for rating the energy consumption and efficiency of varied products, and in this case for labeling the energy consumption of a home. Just to give you an idea, the typical new home built to the Alberta Building Code is rated between 66 and 74, depending on the specifications. At Cedarglen Homes, we changed our specifications to ensure that every standard home built on a standard lot will achieve a minimum rating of 80. We also offer an impressive standards in our Cedarglen Design Center. With our large selection and the help from one of our Design Consultants, you can choose all your interior finishing’s without having to upgrade.
Reason # 3: Promotions
Feature homes and promotional offers can be found in each of our communities. We currently have three feature models, the Cayley, the Duchess and the Wembley. Each model has limited time pricing. Download our Cedarglen Homes Feature Models app for a virtual tour of all three models. If you have another model in mind, then we encourage you to sit with one of our Area Sales Managers for more information about other promotions available to you.
Reason #4: Limited lots in an established community
If you’re looking to build a home in this beautiful lake community, then now is the time. We are currently building in the last phases in Auburn Bay. We offer both move-up and zero lot line homes available. With pricing starting in the low $400,000’s, it won’t be long before we sell out in this established community.
In Cranston’s Riverstone we offer move-up and semi estate homes with lots that have some of the best views in the community. With prices starting in the $620,000’s, our current phases offer quick access to the Fish Creek walking paths and picturesque views of the river.
Looking for a fresh start? Then come discover the established community of Walden! This ‘Urban by Nature’ community offers plenty of amenities, walking paths and parks. Our current phase has some excellent specifications, such as front yard landscaping that will leave your new street feeling complete. With pricing starting in the mid $400,000’s for a move-up home, you can definitely create your dream home in Walden.
