Johnston County Parade of Homes 2012
As usual the traffic at the Johnston County Parade of Homes has been wonderful, this year has seen great crowds of people checking out the new homes on display. The Johnston County Real Estate market is certainly heating up compared to a year ago.
There seems to buyers coming from all over the United States to live in North Carolina and Johnston County. I recently met folks from California, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, every day it seems I come across someone relocating to North Carolina.
The Johnston County Parade of Homes has about twenty homes to see, anywhere from great town homes to estate homes like award winners Steve Corker in Portofino and Art Kirkwood in Flowers Plantation and, wonderful family homes like Neil Jarman’s Gold Award Winner in Mill Creek West and JordanBuilt Homes in Portofino.
The prices range from $150,000 up to $600,000 and there are some great ideas in these new homes, you will see the latest in lighting, entertainment energy saving products. Landscaping ideas are also abundant as the builders spare no expense to showcase their entries. You will see homes on large lots, small lots, wooded lots, cleared lots. Foundations from slab to crawl space to finished basement.
Typically when you buy a Parade Of Homes entry you are getting a bargain as the builders want to impress the judges by putting as much in the home without raising the price too much, ask any builder and they will tell you that to build the same house again is going to cost more.
Johnston County, North Carolina is seeing some growth and has done for some time as the land in Raleigh and Wake County becomes more and more scarce, coupled with the fact that Wake County Schools are going through a huge school assignment issue. Johnston County has low taxes, excellent schools, a good industrial base and job growth, plus you get so much more for your money here than in Raleigh or Cary.
The Johnston County Parade of Homes is April 14,15 21, 22, 28,29 Saturdays from 10-6 and Sundays from 1-6, hope to see you out there, if I can help you purchase a home I'd be glad to help.
