Pardee Homes Sells 30 Homes in 30 Days at Inland Empire Neighborhood; New LivingSmart(R) Homes are a Hit with Energy-Conscious Southern California Homebuyers
LOS ANGELES, CA, April 03, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sales started off steady and then gained even more momentum for Pardee Homes as they neared the end of the first month of sales at its exciting new LivingSmart(R) Homes neighborhood which opened for sale in two locations on February 13th. By the end of 30 days, an astonishing total of 30 homes had been sold.

"We were confident that home shoppers were ready for new homes in this price range but we were still amazed at the sales rate as buyers flocked to our two separate model home locations to buy," said Matt Sauls, regional marketing director for Pardee Homes. "LivingSmart Homes represent the next generation of Pardee homes, bringing more than style and value pricing; they offer buyers eco-friendly homes that are brimming with a wealth of energy-saving, water-conserving, health-promoting and earth-friendly features. We are thrilled with the success of this community and achieving the first 30 sales so quickly."

Priced from the high $100,000s, LivingSmart Homes have been designed to save the buyer money and offer versatile, sustainable new home choices in master-planned Canyon Hills in Lake Elsinore and Tournament Hills in Beaumont. The dual grand opening in February attracted hundreds of Inland Empire home shoppers and allowed qualified homebuyers to take advantage of the Federal homebuyer's tax credit.

LivingSmart Homes include a total of eight floor plans (seven at the Canyon Hills location), with four model homes available for viewing at each of the two communities. "We've taken a different approach to homebuilding by offering an exciting array of choices in floor plan design, including both one- and two-story homes," added Sauls. "In addition to versatility, LivingSmart Homes are designed with four components that promote sustainable living. That all adds up to a home that contributes to your family's well-being, and your pocketbook."

LivingSmart Homes have up to seven bedrooms, two to four baths, two and three-bay garages and approximately 1,132 to 3,099 square feet. Ingenious touches such as gourmet kitchens with slab granite and stainless steel appliances are complemented by a host of options such as media niches, extra bedrooms, fireplaces, garage workshops, master bedroom decks and a four-bay garage in select plans.

All LivingSmart homes by Pardee include a number of standard energy-efficient features such as Energy Star rated dishwashers, convenient recycling centers in the kitchen, low-E spectrally selective glass windows, fluorescent lights in select recessed cans, dimmer switches and occupancy sensors, radiant barrier roof sheathing, low VOC paint and water-efficient plumbing fixtures. Buyers can also add such earth-friendly options as roof-integrated solar electric power systems, high- efficiency air filtration systems, tankless water heaters, WaterSmart controllers for landscape, reverse osmosis water system in the kitchen, central vacuum systems, and more. Energy efficiency in a LivingSmart home exceeds California's Title 24 criteria, already the toughest in the nation.

Other features include designer-selected interior light fixtures and architecturally specified recessed lighting, separate interior laundry rooms and spacious master bedroom suites with luxurious bathrooms, private dressing areas and walk-in closets. To make buying a new home even easier, Pardee offers a variety of optional features including value kitchen packages, home wiring packages, bath fixture bundles and LivingSmart packages.

"As important as finding a home in the right size and right price range is the location," said Sauls. "That's why we are offering this exciting new collection of homes in two of our most successful master planned communities in the Inland Empire."

Tournament Hills in Beaumont has a gorgeous private lake and about seven acres of park space, walking trails, picnic areas and a new elementary school. Additionally, the LivingSmart Homes' enclave adjoins the East Valley Golf Club, which features 36-holes in two masterfully designed courses.

Canyon Hills offers homeowners trails, parks, schools, convenient shopping and two residents-only recreation centers with beautiful swimming pools, not to mention its proximity to all the great recreational activities that make Lake Elsinore popular with boat enthusiasts, skydivers, wakeboarders and cyclists.
