New Homes Springing Up at Dream Prices in Tehaleh

“Tehaleh has a lot to offer homebuyers – at nearly half the cost of some Seattle neighborhoods,” says Scott Jones, senior vice president for Newland. “The Puget Sound’s largest collection of homebuilders and floor plans, stunning views of Mount Rainier, great neighbors, and 1,800 acres of nature in your backyard – buyers get an incredible value for their dollar here.”  


Smart home shoppers are discovering that a brand-new home is possible in Tehaleh, the best-selling community of new single-family homes in Washington. With prices that can’t be matched in the King County market, new model homes springing up, a tight-knit community, and award-winning amenities – it’s the best time for a visit.


Tours of the community’s 13 model homes are available today. Home shoppers can peruse the impressive lineup of homebuilders, including Azure Northwest Homes, Brookstone Homes, HC Homes, Lennar, MainVue Homes, Noffke Homes, Oakridge Homes, Pulte Homes, Richmond American Homes, and the 55+ active-adult community, Trilogy® at Tehaleh®.


With spring fast-approaching, residents are gearing up for the annual family egg hunt on Saturday, March 24. With wildflowers blooming along the 20+ miles of trails, and the debut of Expedition Grove, the eleventh park in Tehaleh, the new season is a time for enjoying the beauty of nature in Tehaleh.


Some shoppers may question if buying now is right for them. With the rising interest rate at 4.5 percent, there is a sense of urgency around purchasing a home sooner rather than later. When homebuyers secure a purchase at a lower rate, it’s easier to make the monthly mortgage payments.


Luckily, eager shoppers can discover a home in Tehaleh that fits their budget and addresses their unique needs. Brand-new model homes and fresh designs have been popping up all over Tehaleh this spring.


Local builder Brookstone Homes prioritizes quality craftsmanship and customized home options for each buyer – their latest home sites, the Parks Collection, are debuting this month. Situated on greenbelt lots, they truly maximize the Tehaleh outdoor lifestyle. The homes have optional upgrades for eco-savvy buyers that include solar panels and electric car charging stations, starting in the mid $400,000s.


For buyers concerned about the bottom line, the average price per square foot in Bonney Lake is $183 compared to $472 in Seattle. Additionally, the median price for homes in Bonney Lake is $425,000, which is 38 percent lower than the median price in Seattle. For renters considering a purchase, Zillow reports that with the gross costs, equity and investment possibilities, it remains smarter to buy if you plan on living in a home for at least three years.


Innovative local builder Azure Northwest Homes debuted a 2,387 square foot model home recently. Designed to complement the Northwest lifestyle, the Alki Crest model maximizes the outdoors with oversized windows, a covered patio and an open-floor concept, starting in the high $300,000s.


Lennar, one of the nation’s most respected homebuilders, debuted two new model homes in Tehaleh last month starting in the high $400,000s. What sets a Lennar home apart is the “Everything’s Included” offering – high level features such as home automation, voice control by Amazon Alexa, stainless steel appliances, fully landscaped yards, and more, all included in the purchase price.


For over three decades, Richmond American Homes has designed and built superior homes across the country. Their newest 2,250 square foot ranch-style model home, starting in the mid $400,000s, features a spacious family room and a gourmet kitchen with a lavish main floor master suite boasting an oversized walk-in closet.


Home values, community amenities, friendly faces, and access to nature all add up to a thoughtful investment in Tehaleh.


Tehaleh is owned in a joint venture between two strong companies: North America Sekisui House, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of Sekisui House Ltd., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and  Newland is the master developer of Tehaleh. Collectively, the NASH-Newland partnership owns or manages more than 30 communities across the country.
