Vintage on the Grow
The Township defies national trends
Vintage is growing into a township.  In September the traditional neighborhood broke ground on its second phase of development.  This ground breaking was different from its first.  Rather than a developer announcing plans to the media as was the case in the first ground breaking; this ground breaking was announced by a resident of the growing community and attended by a crowd of vintage residents.  It was held at 10:00 AM on a school day, yet the event was full of children.  The entire Vintage community turned out. 
The excitement centered on … (0 comments)

The decision to buy or build a new home is a momentous occasion at any stage of an individual's or family's life.  Although price, size and floor plan of a home are important considerations, location has historically and continues to be the driving factor.
