The weather is finally getting warm, new life is in bloom and summer is knocking at the door! This has always been one of my favorite times of the year to be in Grand Junction. It’s a great time of the year to be outside planting gardens, riding bikes and hiking. Its also a great time of the year to be looking for a new home! Please consider this an invitation to come visit us.
Why view new homes in the Spring?
It can be challenging during the winter months to get a full understanding of a potential new property because the yard area is either under snow or frozen and everything outside is brown and appears lifeless. However, when spring finally arrives, you can start to see the grass turn green and any perennial plant life magically appears from the ground, like crocus, daffodils, tulips, iris and other wildflowers, You can also see the trees starting to bloom.
Insight into the future...
If you are on the hunt for a new home, this gives you great insight into the property you may soon be purchasing. It lets you know if the irrigation system is functional or if there is a yard full of previously frozen, now cracked and leaky irrigation pipes. It also lets you know if the trees in the yard are alive or dead and ready to fall over on your new home. When you look at a home in April/May you will have much better understanding of the value and condition of the landscaping as a whole. Considering the price of landscaping, this is a big deal!
Furthermore, it's just a nice time of the year to be outside, which is probably why this weekend, April 22 and 23 (10am-4pm) were chosen for the Grand Valley’s Open House Weekend. What that means, is that many local realtors and some new home builders will have homes available to tour all over the valley. On Friday, we’ll be able to post a list of all the homes available that will be open to the public. In the mean time, mark your calendar! If you are interested in a certain area, this will allow you to see what’s available at no cost and without any commitment.
You may have already guessed this but yes, Copper Creek Builders will have several homes available to tour in our newest community called Copper Creek North! Some of the homes we will have open are move-in ready, meaning they are completely finished and ready to move-in right now. We also have several homes that are close to completion. This means you can tour up to 6 different homes in one stop if you’d like.
If you’re looking for a new home or just want to stop by and say hello, we’d love to see you this weekend in Copper Creek North!
