Santa Stops at Hideaway Farms

Southdown Santa Dec 2013

Santa with Posie Czimback, Sales Manager at The Estates and Traditions at Hideaway Farms

Southdown Homes was very good this year and asked for an early present – a visit from Santa. Santa took some time out of his busy schedule and arrived at Hideaway Farms on December 7 so that he could take requests from all of the well-behaved and polite children who live in our Southdown Homes communities. While he was here, he double-checked his directions to all of the new homes we’ve built this year so he and his trusty team of reindeers will be able to find their way.

The magical day draws near and from all of us at Southdown Homes, we hope that your holiday wishes come true!

Wishing you peace, joy and happiness this holiday season.

The Mom-Cave Craze has Arrived

The Mom-Cave Emerges as a new trend in home design

The Mom-Cave Emerges as a new trend in home design

It was inevitable. With women everywhere happily relinquishing basements and garages for the man-cave, a place where sports memorabilia, the kegerator and oversized flat screen televisions rule, it was only a matter of time before the Mom-cave evolved.

While you’re touring the Southdown Homes models and studying the floor plans, we know you’re mentally decorating your sanctuary space whether it’s in the spacious basement, the garage, an extra bedroom or sitting room. Either way, there are plenty of man-cave and mom-cave ideas to give you inspiration.

Visit any of our Southdown Homes communities located in Chester County, Pennsylvania and design the cave of your dreams.

20130725_NEWHOMESLS_graphic-articleInline

New York Times New-Home Sales and Prices of New Homes Graphs

The media is buzzing with good news for New Home Sales. Even with increasing mortgage rates, the pace of new home sales has continued to grow. An 8.3% increase was posted in June, the highest level recorded since May 2008. Single family home sales are 38.1% higher than they were only a year ago in June 2012.

According to a Reuters article published by the New York Times, positive new home sales along with increased factory activity may point to third quarter economic growth.

At Southdown Homes we are experiencing the direct impact of our improving economy. For example, Hideaway Farms in Downingtown, Chester County has had 22 sales to date in 2013.

With low inventories of new homes pushing prices higher, still-low mortgage interest rates and an improving economy, buyers looking for the best values are jumping into the market.
