A new season has come, the Tampa Bay Rays made it to the World Series, a historic election took place and cooler weather has come to Bay area residents. And, according to officials with Rottlund Homes of Florida, the cooler weather also has brought new home-buying opportunities to those seeking to live in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
Rottlund Homes has 10 communities in the Bay area, which they believe will suit the needs of most anyone.
"Meeting the needs of customers has always been a priority for Rottlund Homes and recent additions to their home designs are giving their home buyers even more efficient and luxury choices," says Alexis Demico, area sales manager. "The marketplace continues to change, lifestyle needs continue to change and we're constantly looking for opportunities to create new ideas."
Oakwood Terrace, a town home community in Valrico, is one of the areas that Demico touts.
Rottlund offers two floor plans that are part of a companywide redesign: a three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom residence with a loft and one-car garage or a two-bedroom, 2½-bathroom town home with a loft and one-car garage.
The features "found in our homes are comparable to those you would find in a more elaborate town home," Demico says. "Our customers are looking for a home they can really live in, one they are proud to show off but can be comfortable in on a day-to-day basis as well.
"Rottlund has an innate ability to offer comfortable and functional floor plans in a price range affordable for those looking to purchase a home for the first time or for the purchaser that is ready to downsize from a larger home," Demico says. "We pride ourselves on being a leader in product design."
This tree-lined community is close to many of the shops and restaurants that Brandon has to offer.
"So there's convenience in the location, but financing opportunities are offered that are unheard of in most other locations," Demico says. "Rottlund, along with its preferred lender can offer buyers a program where they have virtually zero out-of-pocket expenses to close on a new home.
"This program is enabling someone to go directly from renting into homeownership."
Oakwood Terrace, set amongst mature oak trees in Valrico, will feature 206 town homes when complete.
"Don't delay, we are experiencing strong activity and are over halfway sold out," Demico says.
The town homes are priced from $109,900 to $134,900.
Decorated models are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

"From luxury townhome communities to single-family home neighborhoods, our buyers will discover spacious floor plans and award-winning designs at locations and prices that meet their needs," Demico says.
