New Home Construction in Southeast Fort Collins, CO

Kechter Crossing

December 2013

If you are thinking about moving into a brand new home in southeast Fort Collins next summer, then now is the time to build.  According to local sales representatives from both DR Horton and Meritage Homes, permit and construction time is running anywhere from six to eight months.  So unless you want to compete for spec homes with hundreds of homebuyers in the spring and summer, it might be a good idea to contact your real estate agent and visit some of the new construction sites right away.

DR Horton has released SFR lots in Bucking Horse, a master-planned community comprised of 176 homes featuring single family homes, urban estate homes, and condominium and apartment housing.  Located north of East Drake Road and east of Timberline Road, Bucking Horse residents enjoy a community pool, neighborhood park, and close proximity to the highly anticipated Jessup Farm/Artisan Village.  The development is centered around sustainable living, and there are homes in their product line to fit nearly every lifestyle.  Model homes are under construction.  Base prices start in the high-$300,000’s.  For more information, visit the sales office, contact your real estate agent, or just give me a call.

Just south of Bucking Horse, one of Northern Colorado’s newest builders – Meritage Homes – has started construction on their model homes in Rigden Farm.  Located north of Horsetooth Road and west of Ziegler Road, this development features The River Collection by Meritage Homes with floor plans ranging from 1,607sq ft to 2,390sq ft.  Home prices have not officially been disclosed, but Meritage sales associates believe pricing will start in the mid-$300,000’s.  The sales office will be open once the model homes are built, so contact your real estate agent or give me a call for more information.

Meritage Homes is also the developer of the highly desirable Kechter Crossing in southeast Fort Collins.  Located east of Timberline Road and south of Kechter Road, this development of just over 70 SFR homes features large lots bordering green space.  The Summit Collection offers two ranch plans and six total floor plans ranging from 2,336sq ft to 3,420sq ft.  Based prices start in the high-$300,000’s, but with lot premiums and optional upgrades many home buyers are spending $450,000-$500,000 to build new homes.  Residents will become part of the school system comprised of Bacon Elementary School, Preston Middle School, and Fossil Ridge High School.  The sales office is open and model homes are available to preview.  Contact your real estate agent or give me a call for more information.

Builders are offering financing incentives with their preferred lenders, and many loan officers anticipate interest rates rising over the next year.  Give me a call if you need a recommendation for a great lender in Northern Colorado, and don’t wait too long to reserve your lot and build your dream home.
