Originally planned as a one-time special promotion, Lennar's Top Models event took on a life of its own and is now back for the third year in a row. The builder's two previous Top Models promotions were "overwhelmingly popular with homebuyers," according to Mark Metheny, division president for the Lennar Central Florida Division.
"For our third annual Top Models promotion, we have a limited number of specially priced homes in select communities that include upgraded features Lennar doesn't usually include in our homes," Metheny says.
Those special features include wood floors, a full CleanSteel appliance package, and granite kitchen countertops. Lennar negotiated deals with its suppliers in order to obtain these features at prices that allow the company to offer the Top Models promotion at no additional cost to homebuyers.
"The homes being offered in our Top Models promotion are brand new, fully equipped homes. What makes the offer even more of a value is that on top of the special Top Models features are all the features that Lennar already includes in our signature Everything's Included program," Metheny says.
"Lennar is known for building homes with popular features that other companies would consider options, such as tile flooring in the wet areas, blinds in all the windows, and a super-capacity washer and dryer. This not only saves homebuyers thousands of dollars, but saves them the time of having to choose options for their homes. With all of the extra features in the Top Model homes, buyers save even more. They are a tremendous value."
The Lennar Top Model homes are available with special financing programs that the builder offers through its preferred lenders, including below market interest rates or zero down payment plans. Monthly payments are lower than rent in many cases.
"We go above and beyond in helping our buyers get financing that fits their budgets, including a program with no down payment," Metheny adds. "Lennar has the best deals and some of the lowest interest rates in the market."
Metheny says that Lennar strives to take the inconvenience and hassle out of the homebuying process by aggressively finding ways to get buyers financing that fits their individual needs. "Lennar has a longstanding reputation for providing outstanding value in a quality home and a warranty that gives new homebuyers peace of mind," he adds. "Providing financing options that buyers are comfortable with is an essential part of satisfying our customers."
Lennar's annual Top Models promotion has proven so popular during the past two years that the homes have sold out quickly. "We are not charging more for the Top Model homes," Metheny says. "They are specially priced to save buyers thousands of dollars on each one, and buyers need to act fast because the promotion will be over at the end of October."
Lennar currently builds homes in 20 communities throughout the Tampa Bay area, from Hillsborough and Polk to Hernando and Pasco counties, and most of those communities have Top Model homes available.
"Whatever a person may be looking for in a home or a community, Lennar has something to fit their needs," Metheny insists. "We have large single-family homes with four or five bedrooms and three-car garages, as well as maintenance-free two-bedroom townhomes and everything in between. We have family-friendly communities, golf course communities and active adult communities."
