You would never know Pennsylvania has been in the midst of a shutdown with the record number of homes sold at our communities during May. Across the state, our New Home Counselors have been busier than ever. Phone calls, video tours, texts, Zoom meetings, document sharing and DocuSign were the norm during the height of the shutdown. Customers were carefully studying site plans and floor plans, deciding what modifications to make to their future home, talking to Designers and ultimately choosing to Live Better in a Traditions of America community. In all, 31 homes sold in the month of May which translates to one home sold every day – and most of them sold virtually! Now that our Sales Offices and Design Studios have reopened, the pace has only increased. And, we expect the enthusiasm to continue. Why? Several trends can be gleaned from the record-setting number of sales in May.
First, and foremost, it is simply a great time to sell your home and buy one of ours. With mortgage rates at all-time historic lows and the inventory of homes for sale ALSO at record low levels, our customers are selling their homes – and quickly! With our Traditions Assurance program, customers enjoy the benefits of making the move risk-free. Under the program, customers have more time to evaluate their decision, built-in price protection, and health assurance.
Second, many customers are moving from urban areas. We are seeing a significant number of customers choosing a Traditions of America community because of our picturesque, small-town locations. They are trading in their urban homes in NYC, Long Island, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC and northern Virginia metro for the less crowded, quiet allure of the very best Pennsylvania has to offer: Lancaster County, Chester County, the Lehigh Valley, Central PA and the North and South Hills of Pittsburgh. Less traffic, a strong sense of community, resort-style amenities steps away from your door, best friends ready to be made – all make the decision to move NOW an easy one. Plus, maintenance-free homes with Master Suites on the first floor add to the Live Better lifestyle at a Traditions of America community. No stairs, no yard work, and less time driving adds up to MORE TIME enjoying Friday night Happy Hours at the Clubhouse by the pool in a chaise-lounge.
