Time is Running Out to Celebrate Orleans’ Octoberfest in Raleigh

unnamed-4

 

Need just one more reason to love the fall?

Orleans Homes is offering a special Octoberfest incentive for the rest of the month in each of our Raleigh neighborhoods.

When you buy a new home in October, you will automatically receive a FREE upgrade to hardwood floors in your family room!

Just imagine, a quiet wooded view in a gorgeous ranch home with a large yard like the ones featured at Blalock Forest in Willow Spring. We are talking the best of both worlds— living in a cul-de-sac community, with the convenience of easy access of downtown Raleigh.

Don’t miss out this fall. The season—and these opportunities—will be gone before you know it.

More Communities, More Happiness This Fall in Chicagoland

Two neighborhoods have just opened, and five more aren’t far behind. We couldn’t be happier with the reception Orleans Homes is receiving in the Chicagoland area.

We recently celebrated the opening of Blackberry Creek in Elburn, where we’re building single family homes starting in the upper $200s in beautiful Kane County, surrounded by 202 acres of park and conservation land. This great location offers rural charm and modern conveniences. It’s close to the new Elburn Metra station and the Randall Road corridor. There’s even an on-site elementary school. What could be more convenient?


Blackberry Creek

During the VIP pre-sale periods, 3 out of the 45 lots at Blackberry Creek were sold before being opened to the general public.

A bit to the east, we’re also excited about the opening of The Courtyards of Glen Ellyn. These upscale courtyard-style townhomes start in the upper $200s and offer a mix of urban and suburban living. Residents enjoy a quiet tranquil neighborhood, but they’re still within walking distance of shopping and dining in lively downtown Glen Ellyn. It’s also just a short walk to the commuter train.

The Courtyards of Glen Ellyn

During the 3-week VIP pre-sale period, 4 lots were sold at The Courtyards of Glen Ellyn before being opened to the general public.

Five more neighborhoods are slated to open in Fall 2014, and sales teams are actively filling our VIP lists for each community. By becoming a VIP, Orleans Homes gives you the best selection of homesites, including the first choice of homes, and exclusive pricing that the general public only dreams of. The value of becoming a VIP will directly impact your daily life from the conception of your home, to raising a family there, making it priceless.

It’s Good to be a VIP

If you really want your pick of the best homes, the best homesites and the best prices, it helps to get ahead of the crowd.

When Orleans Homes opens a new community, we reward those who are with us from the start with a wide range of perks fit for a VIP. Here’s how it works:

When you hear about a Coming Soon community, visit OrleansHomes.com and find that neighborhood’s page. You’ll see a message inviting you to join that community’s VIP list. Fill out a brief form, and that’s it. You’re a VIP.

That means you’re among the first to hear about new developments within the community. As the grand opening approaches, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the community and pick out your homesite, your floor plan and all the design options you want.  There’s also the opportunity to take advantage of introductory pricing in our new communities.

And you get all that before we ever open our doors to the general public. What’s not to love about that?

We’ve got several Coming Soon communities in the works now. Ready to be a VIP?
