Why Are Buyers Heading East?

The old saying "go west young man" has changed and buyers are heading east - to the Inland Empire. So, why are buyers heading East?

Rising prices, low inventory levels and bidding wars have forced many buyers to consider a different alternative - new construction homes in the Inland Empire. Before you moan with disdain consider a few of the following reasons motivating buyers to buy new in the Inland Empire:

  • personalization of the home                                                                 new home
  • warranties
  • price and size
  • smart features and energy efficient features                                  

Young families seeking a neighborhood/community with parks and qualified schools or homebuyers interested in a living in a slower pace community, or buyers seeking more elbow room (larger homesites), status buyers searching for the luxury home of their dreams;  various reasons are driving buyers eastward hoping to purchase the home of their dreams.  

Corona, Eastvale and Riverside are Inland Empire cities offering a variety of new construction neighborhoods. The communities provide a selection of entry level, move-up and luxury homes for buyers. The square footage of the homes (an average of 2500 sq.ft) compared to the average found in cities like Long Beach (1500 sq.ft) provides plenty of interior space. While the size of the lots, ranging from the average of 7000 square feet, are spacious compared to the smaller lots found in Los Angeles County.

Buyers of new construction homes have the opportunity to select a homesite, the floorplan options and finishes for the home. The personalization of the home allows the buyers to create a living space which suits each family. 

Top builders - Meritage Homes, Tripointe Homes and KB Homes - are currently selling communities along with smaller builders, offering intimate communities with ten - sixteen homes. Each community is designed to attract a specific buyer ranging from Active Adult communities to mountain-top luxury neighborhoods or masterplanned communities, something for every type of buyer. 

Intrigued, curious?

We are scheduling a buyer caravan to the Inland Empire. Come join us for the day as we tour several new construction communities. Let's see what your money will purchase. We will discuss the buying process, negotiation strategies and community amenities as we tour the different showrooms. Buyers interested in joining the caravan should contact me to reserve a seat.

Why are buyers moving east? The reasons are varied and abundant!
