New Home Builders Pricing

As you shop for a new construction home you will start to learn that the “starting home price” can be very different than the final price. Most builders consider the popular items people want in a home as upgrades. Do you want hardwood floors? Upgrade. Do you want granite countertops? Upgrade. The list goes on and on.

At Forest Ridge Estates the builder MC Messina Inc. includes common upgrades in the starting price.  Some of the many included upgrades are, stamped concrete driveways, granite countertops, 42″ cherry cabinets, tile and hardwood flooring, Anderson windows, Timberline roof, recessed ceiling  and under cabinet lighting, oak staircase, and much more.

As for the quality of construction remember to ask your builder what type of materials he uses. At Forest Ridge Estates the builder only uses the finest materials. All of the homes are built with real plywood not that pressboard stuff. The homes are stick built and not roof truss construction, and the builder plywoods the entire attic floor.

As for the community, the main objective was to build a neighborhood that was custom and unique. The Forest Ridge Estates neighborhood is comprised of two cul-de-sac streets enjoying no thru traffic. With 24 homes and 12 models (each home is fully customizable to your likes and needs) the neighborhood has a custom look and this avoids that cookie cut neighborhoods found in many new construction developments. Of course the neighborhood has Belgium block curbing with sidewalks, underground public water, public sewer, and other utilities underground giving the neighborhood a clean uncluttured look.
