Single Family New Construction

I spent this last week looking at new construction between $300,000 and $380,000 in the Portland Metro area. Most impressive was Sexton Crest… a subdivision by Polygon Homes (www.Polygonhomes.com) in the Murrayhill area of Beaverton. This neighborhood has a combination of townhomes and single family residences. The neighborhood has four single-family floor plans ranging in size from 1,366 to 2,441 square feet. The townhomes come in two- and three-bedroom plans. Polygon also offers Tansborne Place off 185th. These homes are smaller with less lot size but still have the Polygon quality. I also like Riverside Homes (www.Riversidehome.com). They have a lot of projects coming up soon. Currently, Hobbs Farm in Cornelius has three Juniper floor plans available. Around $280,000, these are great value. And the homes are gorgeous! But Cornelius is a ways out there and you have to be willing to drive! 🙂 And Cornelius has that small town feeling that some people like and some don’t. You have quite a drive to the nearest Whole Foods or New Seasons! For a lot of square feet for the money, check out Hoodland Estates in Gresham. This new construction with over 3000 sq feet is easily attainable around $340,000. Built by Delcal (www.decalcustomhomes.com) these homes are great value. Check them out at the intersection of 282nd and Chase Road! Buena Vista Custom Homes (www.BuenaVistaHomes.com) currently offers Falcon Crest in Aloha (homes ready for purchase), Angela Gardens in Beaverton off 180th and Walker Road (3 homes ready in 60 days), and Kessler Estates in Tigard (homes ready now!) Centex homes (www.CentexHomes.com) also have some new homes out there but these are generally more entry level homes. You can get a lot of square footage, but the features aren’t as high end. Finally, we looked at two homes in Fieldstone at Murrayhill, a subdivision by JLS Custom Homes (www.jlscustomhomes.com). These homes were very English Tudor in design. Located in a great area, they looked gorgeous. We weren’t able to check out the model because it is only open Saturday and Sunday but I will be back!
