Taylor Morrison’s New Denver Homes Selling Quickly This Spring New home sales are up dramatically for Taylor Morrison’s Colorado division this spring, as homebuyers in Denver quickly secure new homes in the builder’s latest communities in Arvada, Parker and Broom
BigNews.Biz - May 01,2012 - Denver, CO, May 01, 2012 -- New home sales are up dramatically for Taylor Morrison’s Colorado division this spring, as homebuyers in Denver quickly secure new homes in the builder’s latest communities in Arvada, Parker and Broomfield, with more to soon arrive in Golden.
So far this spring, Taylor Morrison’s newest communities have been met with a resounding stamp of approval by Denver homebuyers. More than 300 homebuyers showed up for the March 16 grand opening of the Lakes at Westwoods in Arvada. Interest is just as high for Taylor Morrison’s Wildhorse Ranch, which debuts in Golden in late May, and where company officials look to capitalize on the double-digit sales happening throughout the division.
“There’s been a lot of interest in our communities this year, especially with our new homes in Golden,” said Kip Gilleland, president of Taylor Morrison’s Denver division. “Denver residents understand that right now is an excellent time to buy a new home – especially if they can find a Taylor Morrison home in a desirable city like Golden, Arvada, Parker or Broomfield.”
The Colorado homebuilder announced in April that all of its new home communities will now carry energy ratings based on the nationally-recognized system HERS®Index ratings, giving Denver homebuyers an opportunity to discover the most energy-efficient home available for their family. The HERS®Index is part of the company’s new “Elem3nts” program, which stresses environment, energy and efficiency in the building of new Taylor Morrison homes.
The HERS®Index is based on four main components – assessment of building components, diagnostic and performance testing, energy modeling and a final report which delivers the energy rating for the home. The rating system is based on a scale of zero to 150, with a lower number indicating better energy efficiency. A typical new home built in the U.S. averages a score of 100, with older homes scoring closer to 130. By comparison, Taylor Morrison Denver has homes that have earned scores of 65.
“Today’s homebuyers are interested in keeping costs controllable,” Gilleland said. “The Elem3nts program quantifies for them just how cost-effective our homes can be.”
Taylor Morrison has seven communities throughout the Denver area, including the recently unveiled Lakes at Westwoods in Arvada and Wildhorse Ranch in Golden, which is now open for presales.
The Lakes at Westwoods offers new Denver homes for sale that include 3 to 5 bedrooms with 2 to 3.5 baths and will range from 2,638 to 3,534 square feet. The community includes great views of the Rocky Mountains and is bounded by Broad Lake to the north and Hyatt Lake to the south with plenty of open space surrounding the neighborhood. Retail shopping, restaurants, and a newly remodeled supermarket are also located nearby.
Wildhorse Ranch in Golden also offers terrific amenities and the quality of homes that Denver home buyers have come to expect from Taylor Morrison. Interest in the community is so strong that Taylor Morrison began presales early.
