Truland Homes – Buxton’s Mill
It’s been a while since I last posted an update to Freeport Insider. One reason is that I simply do not consider myself a talented writer and this is difficult for me. Secondly, school is in, summer season is fast approaching and business is, well, i’ve been busy.
So let’s get to it. If you were to drive around Buxton’s Mill today you would see multiple home sites under way. What I am sure will be the model home to the left of the entrance is entering its final stages. Brick is up on the exterior and visible progress has slowed as the sub contractors focus on the interior of the home.
After speaking with Chad Edgar, The Truland Gulf Coast West Division President, I was able to extract very little information lol. Chad and the Truland crew are keeping their cards pretty close to the vest. Chad did share with me that the homes being built in Buxton’s Mill will be similar as the homes built in the French Settlement community in Daphne AL.
The spec homes that are under construction appear to be moving along nicely and from everything I am hearing and seeing should be ready for sale in the next month or two. Prices are still vague and are posted to be “Starting” in the high $300k’s so with upgrades etc look for the average price to be well into the $400’s. This is great news for home owners who will likely see appreciation in their home values as the average price in Hammock Bay continues to increase. Not so good for buyers looking to purchase their first home…more on this coming soon as I get more involved with the city of Freeport and Walton County regarding affordable housing.
Until then as a local Realtor and a Hammock Bay resident I am more than excited to see these Truland Homes being built and cannot wait to sell some of them.
Stay tuned for some more info on the next development from DrHorton in Hammock Bay – FireFly which will be the newest 55+ community from the “FREEDOM HOMES” devision of the nationwide builder.
