There’s considerable excitement at Rodrock Development, and for good reason: low interest rates and little inventory have merged to form a perfect home-buying storm. These rare circumstances mean an ideal time for people to sell their existing abodes and score the homes of their dreams.
“Homebuyers coming into the market today are very fortunate,” says Mike Leech, market sales manager at Gateway Mortgage Group. “With interest rates dropping and home prices rising, buyers are in an excellent position to save. Last year, predictions said rates on a 30-year fixed conventional loan would be upward of 5.5%. Today, we’re looking at rates below the 4% range—a significant savings! But I can tell you interest rates rise much faster than they drop, so I encourage my homebuyers to take advantage of these low rates while they’re here!”
But if homeowners are nervous about selling their current residence before making such a leap, they needn’t worry. Sparse inventory on the re-sale market leads to homes selling quickly and often for or above asking price!
“The lack of inventory is a huge opportunity for sellers,” says Mike O’Dell, co-owner of Group O’Dell with Keller Williams. “With rates at a 3-year low and given that new construction prices will only rise with time, people need to understand that buying now will provide substantial savings over buying later.”
To sweeten an already fantastic situation, Rodrock Development is offering an astonishing $5,000 toward closing costs on a number of furnished specs in 11 of its award-winning communities, though September 3, 2019. (On-site agents have a list of homes that qualify.)
“The promotion has been wildly successful,” says Brenda Sanders, President of Rodrock & Associates, Realtors®. “We’ve sold almost a dozen homes in short order. Our new builds are beautiful and full of the latest design trends. I would encourage everyone to come take a peek—they won’t be disappointed!”
Stonebridge Park has four homes included in the promotion: the Chloe II, Porter 2, Chalet Reverse, and the Caldera Reverse Expanded. Each is placed on a premium lot with distinctive designs and an abundance of upgrades.
Next door, Stonebridge Trails offers another three fantastic options. Among them is the Makenna by Gabriel Homes, complete with 10-foot ceilings, huge kitchen adjoining the Great Room, and fine details galore.
In Greens of Chapel Creek, the gorgeous Brentwood, by James III Homes, sits on a coveted cul-de-sac lot. With 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, this 2-story home is full of upgrades, including a covered tiled deck with stone-front fireplace. Even more exciting, the builder will match Rodrock Development’s $5,000 promotion—for a full $10,000 off!

Not to be left out, Grayson Place offers both the Fallon, a reverse 1.5 story with fantastic finished lower level and enviable kitchen, and the Karsyn, a new plan with a first-floor master and beautiful fireplace with built-in entertainment centers on either side.
