New Year’s resolutions are all about new approaches to the challenges of a new year and homebuilders expect to innovate with new locations, new floor plans and new products to meet the evolving needs of homebuyers.
According to the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors (MORe), home sales rose in November 2016 throughout 200 communities in DuPage, Lake and suburban Cook County. Increases were seen in the year-to-date number of homes sold, the average sales price and median sales price, all up compared to the same period of 2015. Clearly, suburban Chicagoland buyers are ready to welcome the exciting new offerings of Chicagoland homebuilders.
“We expect home sales to continue to rise during 2017,” says Chris Coleman, Chicago Division president of William Ryan Homes. “Although interest rates are edging up slightly, they are not expected to have a significant impact on the pent-up enthusiasm of home buyers. With new choices in locations and single-family home designs, buyers can anticipate an exciting 2017.”
William Ryan Homes has just opened Stonebridge in Hawthorn Woods and Bartlett Ridge in Bartlett will open soon. A new community will open in Cary later in the year.
“These are already well-established upscale towns so buyers will appreciate the opportunity to purchase newly constructed homes in these desirable areas,” he says. “We offer homes in price ranges from the $250s to over a million and we expect to see growth in every segment of the market.”
New home designs and updated features in some other popular floor plans are also planned for 2017 and refinements in construction are also taking place at William Ryan Homes.
“As a Green Builder, William Ryan Homes places a priority on the quality construction and energy efficiency of our homes and this year we are moving from 2-inch by 4-inch to 2-inch by 6-inch construction. This results in a stronger structure with greater insulation and energy efficiency.”
