During these uncertain economic times, Lennar continually is striving to help people acquire their own homes, a key piece of the American dream, according to Mark Metheny, division president.
The builder's October Madness Sales Event represents the latest effort by Lennar to provide home buyers with an opportunity to purchase the home of their dreams with an affordable monthly payment.
"During our October Madness sale, buyers can take advantage of special financing options," Metheny says. "Buyers can choose the special financing package of 2.99 percent the first year, 3.99 percent the second year and then a 4.99 percent fixed rate for the life of the mortgage, or they can choose zero closing costs. This program is available on select Lennar homes with financing provided by Universal American Mortgage Co. through a commitment exclusively for Lennar. There are limited funds available for this program so home buyers will want to act fast."
Today is the final day of the sale, so buyers are urged to visit a Welcome Home Center in one of the 19 participating Lennar communities in the Tampa Bay area. To sweeten the deal, Lennar has a limited number of specially priced homes that are available during the sale.
"The specially priced homes are not stripped-down," Metheny says. "They are brand new Lennar homes with all of the most popular features and upgrades that buyers want included in the purchase price. There are no hidden costs. Buyers can save thousands of dollars on these specially priced homes."
With Lennar communities in Hillsborough, Hernando, Pasco and Polk counties, buyers can get both the home they are looking for and the community that fits their lifestyles and needs.
"We have something for everyone," Metheny says. "We have town homes and single-family homes. We have communities for every lifestyle, including active-adult communities and golf course communities. Too often people sacrifice location - where they really want to live - to find a lower-priced home. The October Madness interest rate can get buyers a monthly payment they can afford, so they can live in the community they really want. Perhaps they want to live closer to work, and the sale would not only save with their monthly mortgage payments, but with commuting costs and time as well."
Lennar homes are priced from the low $100,000s to the high $300,000s.
"No matter where you work or where you want to live, Lennar has a community to accommodate those desires," Metheny adds. "Because today is the last day of the October Madness sale, buyers will want to act quickly to take advantage of the savings. They will be pleasantly surprised by how low the special interest rate can make their monthly mortgage payment."
Locations for the specially priced October Madness sale homes, as well as for all Lennar communities, can be found on the company's Web site, or in the advertisement in today's Tampa Tribune.
"As Tampa's largest home builder, Lennar is in this for the long haul," Metheny says. "We have the resources and ability to offer lower prices and weather the current economic storm without compromising the quality and value we have promised our customers since 1954."
Each Lennar community features professionally decorated models, which are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Lennar Corp., founded in 1954, is headquartered in Miami and is one of the nation's leading home builders, according to Metheny. Lennar builds homes in 16 states throughout the United States.
