New Communities’ Response
(Orem, Utah) April 21, 2016 -EDGEhomes, Utah’s fastest-growing homebuilder, had an overwhelming response with their brand new communities announced last week: Waters Edge, The Towers, and Horizon Heights. As of Wednesday, over 55 homes have been sold since the release last week.
Brandon and Chelsea Erickson share why they made their decision so quickly. “We enjoyed the experience much better than our previous one. Whitney took time to actually show us through the different floor plans. There were a lot more choices in floor plans. The standard with EDGE is a lot more upgraded than other home builders, and EDGE builds beautiful homes.”
According to a recent article by Forbes, a lot of first-time homebuyer—such as millennials—are more frequently buying homes in Utah than anywhere else. Not only are homes more affordable according to the national average, but Utah County also has “the fastest employment growth among the 342 largest U.S. counties.”
One such Utah County community is Waters Edge, a new and energetic master-planned community in Vineyard, Utah. Conveniently located just west of Orem in the town of Vineyard, Waters Edge encompasses more than 400 acres between I-15 and the eastern shoreline of Utah Lake. It’s an active-lifestyle community that includes nearly 7 miles of walking and biking trails that weave through community. There will be multiple clubhouses, pools, and over 78 acres of open space. Mature, tree-canopied streetscapes will be the result of nearly 1,000 mature trees being transplanted into the community. Over 27 acres of parks will include splash pads, playgrounds, soccer fields, and sports courts. Warm sunrises over Lone Peak and Timpanogos Mountains, coupled with sunsets over Utah Lake and the Oquirrh Mountains, make Waters Edge a matchless setting in which to live and play. EDGEhomes will be building townhomes and condos. To visit the sales center, take 800 North in Orem west until the road only turns left. Once the road turns, the sales center will be the first on the right.
Buyers in Salt Lake County are also choosing to buy. “I think it’s dumb to pay money towards something that where you’re not going to get anything in return. When you’re renting, you’re paying $800 and you don’t get anything out of it. You’re just making a landlord rich. But when you buy, you’re investing in your own place,” says new homebuyer, Sallie Mangum.
EDGEhomes released two new communities in Salt Lake County. Future buyers of The Towers will enjoy a great Riverton location where shopping and dining are just minutes away. Access to this community is simple with Redwood Road nearby. Great schools, private amenities, and all the convenience to county amenities make this location ideal—not to mention the value residents will receive in this Salt Lake County community. Within the Towers will be a pool, park, club house, tot lot, and trails! This beautiful, elevated location provides an opportunity for better air quality, as well as breathtaking views of the Salt Lake Valley. To visit the sales center, follow directions for EDGEhomes’ model at 13272 S. Meadowside Dr. Herriman, UT 84096.
The company’s second community, Horizon Heights, is an active lifestyle community in a great central location! It’s nestled into the Herriman—a city that, while flourishing economically and has a close proximity to other cities, still manages to keep its small-town feel. The community will have transportation corridors, making it easily accessible and walkable. Close by is the county recreation center and soon-to-be mega-mall—a master planned center to have a mixture of shopping outlets, restaurants, offices, a hotel, and movie theaters. Within the community are sport courts, trails, a pool, tot lot, and clubhouse.
- The builder will be adding single family homes, condos, and cottages to this community. To visit the sales center, drive downtown Herriman and turn north on S 5000 W and drive until the road stops. The sales center will be on the left. This location will be right next to the Walmart Neighborhood Market off 13400 S.
