Because of our geographical diversification, we can afford to be selective about where our developments are located, selecting markets deemed to be a sound long-term investment. We choose unique sites with special environments such as natural lakes, mature trees, hillsides and scenic views that help provide appealing settings and lasting differentiation for our communities. And, we insist on building in cities with good educational systems including colleges, quality medical facilities and a stable economic base.
All of our developments begin with feasibility studies to evaluate a market’s investment potential. These studies include market, environmental, geo-technical and financial considerations. We then choose sites within these markets that will provide lasting value and long-term success for our developments. Other important criteria includes ease of access, convenience to shopping, employment and appealing terrain. From site acquisition through construction, costs are carefully scrutinized and a strategy is planned to achieve optimum return on investment.
