With the influx of new builders coming into the city of Maricopa, some subdivisions have parcels that sell out, and the builders move to new areas.
When this happens, builders sell the models that have been serving as show homes. Builders generally make considerable upgrades in model homes to show clients some of the available options.
Fulton Homes in the subdivision of Glennwilde Groves has listed one of its models for sale for $632,876. (More photos here.)
The home is 3,093 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The floor plan – known as the Harris Beach Model w/loft – looks like a single story from the street but actually has a loft and bedrooms on the upper level.
A couple of features make this listing stand out from all the others, including:
• Furnishings are available for purchase (negotiable)
• $200,000 in upgrades in the home
• 5-car finished garage (or 4 plus a mancave), with air conditioning
• Gourmet kitchen w/quartz counters
• High-end stainless appliances
Only 14 homes in Maricopa have ever sold from $500,000 to $600,000 since the city’s inception in 2003. This one, depending on the final sales price, may set a record.
A home with $200,000 in upgrades is not seen every day, so here’s more details on the major upgrades:
• Landscaping and hardscaping in front and back yards, $60,000
• Flooring, $13,000
• Cabinetry, $18,000
• Countertops/backsplash, $14,000
• Bathrooms, $7,000
• Lighting/ceiling fans, $6,600
• Custom doors, $7,000
• Garage upgrades, $7,000
• Sinks/faucets, $4,000
• Electrical/structural, $30,000
• Smaller miscellaneous upgrades, $40,000
This home at 18103 N. Tara Lane in Glennwilde is beautiful. Superbly decorated and highly upgraded, this model home has it all. It can be viewed by appointment.
Even if it is a brand-new home, make sure to bring your OWN real estate agent to look out for your best interest. The salesperson at the models works for the builder, not you. Having your own representation as a buyer never costs you anything and will likely save you thousands of dollars.
