DALLAS, Texas /eNewsChannels/ — Signs of a recovering market are becoming more evident. The number of homes and developed lots continues to decrease steadily. One of Dallas-Fort Worth’s major homebuilders is doing what seemed impossible 18 month ago – rolling out an entire new phase in one of their most popular north Texas communities.
According to Terry Sandlin, owner of Sandlin Custom Homes, construction is underway on a collection of new homesites at Paloma Creek in Little Elm – one of the area’s top-performing master planned communities located north of Frisco along the Hwy. 380 Corridor.
Location and value continues to be the winning formula for this 53 year old firm. And while home construction in Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth area is at their lowest point in decades, Sandlin Custom Homes is once again ‘bucking the trend’ by doing what has made them successful for decades – “value engineering.” That philosophy was the company’s focus when it unveiled its first neighborhood in the Dallas-Fort Worth area years ago – and continues as it has grown into the areas largest homebuilders.
“Value does not always mean the most square feet for the money, but the best overall value,” Sandlin explained. “The company’s new Cornerstone Series capitalizes on ‘value engineering’ in every phase of the home – and we’re also the only major builder in the DFW market offering unprecedented 15-year warranty to add even more value for our homeowners.”
When asked how the company has succeeded in overcoming a number of major downturns in the homebuilding industry over the last 50 years he replied, “We get smarter each time.”
Sandlin Custom Homes has plans to develop 478 lots as needed in Paloma Creek, with the first set currently under construction and slated for completion in six months.
This new construction amidst reports of a jump in North Texas homebuilding is welcome news for the area’s construction industry. Dallas-Fort Worth is the fastest growing metropolitan area in the country and adding new residents every day. With only 5,000 finished new homes on the market and only 15,000 single family starts slated for 2010, the market is poised for a turnaround – and this builder is prepared to meet the demand.
Sandlin Custom Homes in Paloma Creek are priced from the $120’s-$260’s and range in size from 1,686 to 3,018 square feet. This 1,200 acre community has consistently been ranked among the top master planned communities over the last five years due to its location and lifestyle including three amenity centers, four pools, playgrounds, hike and bike trails, and extensive greenbelt and easy accessibility to work centers
