OKLAHOMA CITY — Local homebuilder Homes By Taber launched Phase 2 at The Waters, one of their communities of new construction homes in Moore, OK. The first day of sales for the 53 homes, held on Saturday, February 1, drew a sizable gathering of enthusiastic homebuyers. Four eager future homeowners were at the model home sales center when it opened at 10 a.m, anxious to get the exact homesite that they set their hearts on.
According to Lindsay Haltom, Homes by Taber’s Director of Marketing, the team expected a strong turn-out at the VIP Launch. “The Waters is a sought-after Moore neighborhood and as soon as we announced we’d be expanding into a second phase, people were signing up for an opportunity to get the first pick of the homesites. With so many homesites on ponds and culs-de-sac or with a tree-lined view, it’s no surprise that this phase is so popular. However, we were a little surprised when we arrived to see future homeowners lined up to stake their claim to their new land.”
At the end of the day on Saturday, eight families purchased homes in The Waters, making it a record-breaking launch for any new Homes by Taber neighborhood. One of the first families to show up for the launch was there early to make sure they got the exact homesite they wanted, which perfectly fit the Cornerstone Bonus Room floor plan. They took advantage of the one-day-only offer of 50 percent off the premium cost for a homesite. When they close on their home, they’ll also receive a $2,000 closing cost credit from Great Plains Bank, a mortgage lender that was also on-site for the VIP Launch. Among the new homeowners were couples looking to right-size and be closer to their grandchildren, families with young children looking for more space, and singles looking for their first home.
A total of 53 single-family homes will be built in Phase 2 of The Waters. Haltom says most of the lots back up to either a pond or tree-lined space, giving them scenic views and privacy. With 45 floor plans to choose from, ranging from 1,500 to 3,350 square feet of space, there are plenty of designs to accommodate a wide range of lifestyles.
Each home reflects Homes by Taber’s extensive list of standard features. Their “Proudly Overbuilt” philosophy includes a storm shelter in the garage floor, smart home TaberTech system, healthy home technology, granite and quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, jetted tub in the master bath, ceiling fans in all bedrooms, gas fireplace in the living room, and a wood-burning fireplace on the extended covered patio, to name just a few. The company estimates that the included features that other builders consider to be upgrades add up to a value of more than $75,000 and these Moore residents were lining up to take advantage.
Taber LeBlanc, who founded the company, believes that certain features, like a storm shelter, shouldn’t be an option in Oklahoma homes. By including such essential features, he said buyers don’t have to struggle over the decision to add it later on.
Construction on new showcase homes in Phase 2 of The Waters have just started and they are now available for sale.
The Waters is located off North Eastern Avenue, near the intersection with NE 27th Street. The neighborhood is just 1.5 miles from I-240 and 2.5 miles from I-35, allowing easy commutes. Families living here are served by the highly-rated Moore schools, including Bryant Elementary, Central Junior High, and Moore High School and will enjoy a playground, walking trails, and several fully stocked fishing ponds.
