Sales Sizzle at Monterey Bay at Fulton Ranch
Fulton Homes' newest community sells more than 50% of their Homes in the first two months!
Since opening on January 15, Chandler homebuyers have already snapped up over 50 new homes at Fulton Homes' newest community, Monterey Bay at Fulton Ranch
Priced from the $380's, the neighborhood will feature single story luxury homes on large lots with basement options available. Located at Ocotillo Road and Arizona Avenue, Fulton Ranch covers 520 acres and offers a mix of quality, single family homes, elegant custom homes, and luxury, multi-family homes.
"Fulton Ranch is buzzing again and we're tremendously pleased by the public's response to our newest community. Consumer confidence is high in the Valley and our strategy is obviously matching the needs of our buyers," relates Douglas Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes. "This is an excellent time to buy a home in a resort-style community like Fulton Ranch. The homes are all single story homes for increased privacy and several of the homesites approach the half-acre size."
The 89 homes at Monterey Bay at Fulton Ranch will boast four-car garages and front or center courtyards. Six floorplans of 3,118 to 5,175 square feet with three to eight bedrooms and up to five baths are available. All homes feature 10 foot ceilings (main level), granite kitchen countertops, 36 inch maple cabinets and eight foot doors. Homes in the Monterey Bay series are also Energy Star Qualified Version 3.
Monterey Bay's quick success coincides with current market trends as recently noted by home building expert RL Brown: "Buyers of new homes have become more interested in homes located closer to their employment and less willing to opt for longer commute times than they were in the high demand years, and builders have intensified their search for infill finished lots versus raw land and suburban periphery lots, accelerating the upward price movement of these infill lots."
Fulton Ranch functions like a small town. It is connected by a series of neighborhoods as part of an overall master plan. Residents are greeted by massive water features at the entrances of the community, which features 28 acres of lakes and waterfalls. Three retail shopping centers currently serve Fulton Ranch homeowners with upscale shopping, fine-foods grocery, restaurants and nearby Chandler Fashion Center. The Ira A. Fulton Elementary School, named after the founder of Fulton Homes, serves the educational needs of the area's youth on 10-acre campus.
"Fulton Ranch is really the last parcel of infill real estate in the East Valley," said Fulton. "With less than 50 homesites still available, this jewel collection will continue to draw tremendous interest."
The heavy sales at Monterey Bay at Fulton Ranch
also defy a recent report from The S&P/Case-Shiller, which indicates that the index of home values in 20 cities fell 1.6 percent from November the prior year – the biggest 12-month decrease since December 2009. The report, however, did also indicate that while mounting foreclosures and unemployment were still major concerns, consumer confidence rose more than forecast in January to the highest levels in eight months.
