Local Home Builder Profile - K Hovanian

For my next series of blogs I will be profiling local Builders. You will have noticed recently a sudden surge in the number of new builds up in the Northwest valley. Today I'll be discussing K Hovanian.

This builder has 17 home sites across the valley - Energy efficiency is a huge selling point for new builds and KH offers their flagship offering the "High Performance Home". These offer superior construction, comprehensive moisture management, efficient insulation, low E-windows, low-flow water, better air sealing and higher indoor quality. This new high tech home has energy efficient appliances and fixtures as well as high efficiency heating and cooling. All of these features combine to offer a high-efficiency, high comfort home that will translate into savings on your utility bills.

My local community is the "Enclave" at Stetson Valley (Happy Valley road and 51st Ave). The homes available are as follows.


Harbor - 1682sq ft - Single Level, 3 Bedrooms, Den, 2 Baths, 2 Car Garage.

Oasis - 1825sq ft - Single Level, 3 Bedrooms, Den, 2 Baths, 2 Car Garage.

Homestead - 2072sq ft - Two Story, 3 Bedrooms, Loft, 2.5 baths, 2 Car Garage.

Manor - 2353sq ft - Two story, 3 Bedrooms, Loft, 2.5 baths, 2 Car Garage.

Villa - 2468sq ft - Two story, 4 bedrooms, loft, 2.5 baths, 3 Car Garage.

There were originally 84 lots and there are 38 left available today. There are no available spec homes as these get sold immediately that they are available in the current market. The builder still has two offered incentives, $5000k towards options and $5000k towards closing costs. The build time right now is between 4 and 6 months.

New builds should be a serious consideration in the current real estate market. With limited inventory and homes in good shape selling quickly, this is one way that you can make sure you are not "settling" for a home you do not totally love! with a new home you still can secure the lot and design the house to meet your wants and needs.

Call me today for more information or if you need any general help buying your new home!
