Homefinders Discover that Seeing is Believing at Tehaleh
Bidding wars, overpriced homes and the lack of inventory have made finding the ideal home more of a headache than a happy house-hunting adventure. Savvy buyers have discovered a solution at Tehaleh, Puget Sound’s top-selling new-home community, situated between Seattle and Tacoma. With spectacular views of Mount Rainier, more than 20 miles of trails, 11 parks, and the widest selection of new homes in the region, it’s no wonder the tight-knit community has risen to the top.
As the Seattle housing market reaches saturation, home shoppers are struggling to find the exact home perfect for their families. 2015 turned out to be the largest year yet for residential real estate since the 2008 recession, and the housing shortage is expected to continue through 2017.
The richness of what Tehaleh offers is unparalleled. Home shoppers can experience the community’s full lifestyle amenities anytime starting at The Post, where you will find a community map, trailheads, a warming hut, and a fresh hand-crafted latte at Caffé D’arte, all while taking in breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier.
When Jason and Kelli Cruz began looking for a home for their family of five, they were discouraged by the price tag that came with the homes they found in West Seattle. In addition, the amount of work older homes would require seemed daunting. Issaquah’s newer homes came at a steep cost – hundreds of thousands of dollars over their ideal price range. When they discovered Tehaleh, they knew the search was over.
“We fell in love with it. We liked the fact that the school was right there for our kids,” Jason Cruz said, referring to Donald Eismann Elementary, a leading public school at the heart of the Tehaleh community.
Cruz said they test-drove the community before buying. “We went to the park on a sunny day, and from the get-go, everyone was so friendly. We felt like it was the perfect place for our family to set down roots.”
They loved the modern look of the homes, the variety of builders, access to the outdoors and the ability to find a home and move in quickly. The Cruz family purchased a Lennar model home that included all of their dream fixtures and upgrades. They were able to move into their new home within a month.
Since the move, Cruz said they regularly use the parks and trails, attend resident events and love that their seven-year-old son can ride his bike to school every day. “Everything we thought we were getting at Tehaleh has been true – it’s even exceeded our expectations,” he said.
“Buyers run the risk of overpaying on existing homes with the current bidding frenzy,” said Scott Jones, Vice President and General Manager for Newland. “The new home market offers the chance to skip the bidding wars and repairs and get exactly the home you want. No one is offering what we have here: the attractive pricing, the extensive level of amenities, the variety of builders and selection of new floor-plans. If you are looking for your dream home, you really need to check out Tehaleh.”
