Conventional thinking and statistics show that spring is an optimum time for buying and selling a house.
But many real estate and home-building experts, including Rodrock Homes, suggest that the short summer season is the perfect time to consider an address change and one that will coincide nicely with the school calendar. With just a week into the start of summer, now is the perfect time to explore some of the hottest-selling communities and most popular floor plans available in Johnson County.
Three of Rodrock’s top-selling communities include Wyngate and Summerwood in Overland Park in the heart of the award-winning Blue Valley School District, and Gleason Glen, tucked into the western suburb of Shawnee with convenient access to the highly acclaimed DeSoto School District.
Each distinctive, family-friendly community has handpicked amenities to appeal to active lifestyles and available inventory to accommodate customization, purchase and move-in within 30 to 45 days.
“Hundreds of buyers visited Wyngate during the Spring Parade of Homes, many anxious to make a change over the summer so they could be ready for the school year,” said Kerwin Holloway, Wyngate community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent. “The good news is that we have exceptional homes available today.”
Move-in ready homes available. Currently Rodrock Homes has 17 homes, featuring 13 innovative floor plans, available for immediate purchase in nine of the area’s premier communities that combine livability, amenities and desirable location.
The move-in ready homes feature Rodrock’s signature stylish interiors, eye-catching architectural details and open design for seamless, turnkey living. Also included in every home are upscale selections such as granite, tile, carpet, light fixtures, paint, and hardwood floor and cabinet finishes. With prices ranging from $325,000 to $1 million, the available inventory includes popular two-story, reverse and 11/2-story floor plans on daylight and walkout home sites.
“Rodrock is built on a foundation of my passion for building affordable homes of integrity and developing communities for people to raise children and create lifetime memories,” said third-generation home builder and Rodrock Homes President Brian Rodrock. “I’m proud to offer diverse floor plans, attractive home sites and a dedication to customer service. And it’s exciting that we can offer homes available for purchase and move-in within 30 to 45 days.”
Craftsmanship showcased. Some of the striking homes available for purchase today are the El Dorado (Wyngate); the Lancaster III and EX (Coffee Creek, Wilshire by the Lake and Wyngate); the Dillon (Wilshire by the Lake); the Irving (BluHawk); the Ashton EX and Windsor II (Summerwood); the Weston III (BluHawk); and the Wakefield (Gleason Glen).
Each home has its own unique array of outstanding features and range from two-story to reverse and 11/2-story floor plans. All are designed with the unmistakable Rodrock standard of excellence in a dynamic community.
Warm-weather amenities abound. Imagine purchasing a home and still being able to move in this summer to enjoy the top-notch features that differentiate Rodrock Homes from other new-home communities.
Holloway notes Wyngate’s community benefits heat up during the summer months. “We see families and their kids enjoying the volleyball and sports courts every day,” he said. “There’s a real sense of community here, and these amenities and others, such as the beautiful swimming pool, really help solidify genuine neighborly camaraderie.”
Anna Stasi, Gleason Glen community manager and ReeceNichols real estate agent, reports that the neighborhood’s old-fashioned park is ideal for families to gather for leisure and recreation.
“People of all ages enjoy the park without ever having to leave Gleason Glen,” she said. “It’s a unique ambiance that helps set this community apart.”
Summerwood, one of Overland Park’s most sought-after new home communities, boasts a resort-style pool and clubhouse featuring lush landscaping and a water splash feature.
“Homeowners enjoy the beautiful swimming pool with stone waterfall and slide,” said Michelle Capek, Summerwood community manager and Weichert, Realtors Graham-Welch. “There’s plenty to do in Summerwood for active families, including miles of nature trails, fishing ponds and a sports court and fun play area.”
Visit today. Summertime brings with it prospective homebuyers looking for dream homes in the ideal location with amenities and features to enhance their lifestyle. Rodrock predicts the company’s move-in ready homes won’t be on the market long due to demand.
“We anticipate people will appreciate these well-built homes equipped for modern living coupled with the family-friendly environment found in our communities,” Rodrock said. “The homes will go quickly.”
