Arlington, TX (PRWEB) February 4, 2010
Bluegreen Communities, the nation’s premier developer of master-planned communities, is reflecting back on a great 2009, and looks forward to a strong 2010. In 2009, the developer opened a 17-acre Equestrian Center, helped more than 100 teams of two stomped a total of 1,000 pounds of grapes at the 2009 Texas Grape Stomp Championship, sold out of 7 communities in 2009, offered prospective home site owners the Gift of a Lifetime, and created a unique offer for timeshare owners called "Timeshare for Land". Other 2009 accomplishments included working with Comal ISD in Texas to help them build a new on-site elementary school, and continued their work with Fred Couples in designing four Bluegreen Golf Clubs; Fred Couples had the honor of serving as co-captain with Greg Norman in the 2009 President’s Cup held in October 2009.
The Bridges at Preston Crossings Celebrates Grand Opening of 17-acre Equestrian Center:
Bluegreen’s North Texas community, The Bridges at Preston Crossings, celebrated the grand opening of its first-class Equestrian Center. The Bridges Equestrian Center offers boarding, riding lessons, training and trail riding. The center is also available for outside events including roping, cuttings and shows as well as birthday parties and holiday events. The 17-acre equestrian complex features three barns with a total of 36 interior stalls, indoor and outdoor arenas, boarding stables and acres of wooded, groomed trails.
2009 Texas Grape Stomp Championship & 7th Annual SAAR Whine Run held at Vintage Oaks:
The 2009 Texas Grape Stomp Championship was held on September 12, 2009 at Vintage Oaks at the Vineyard. Over 300 people attended the stomping and festivities, which included wine tastings of 10 Texas Hill Country wineries, live music by Jazz, Blues & Diamonds and a marketplace with local vendors. More than 100 teams of two stomped a total of 1,000 pounds of grapes. This year’s Texas Great Grape Stomp Champions were Alice & Chris Snyder who managed to stomp out a total of 2279.1 grams of juice!
Bluegreen Communities Sells Out of 7 communities in 2009:
The Bluegreen Land Sales team sold the final available homesites at 7 communities in 2009! Mystic Shores, Silver Lakes Ranch, The Settlement at Patriot Crossing, Mountain Springs Ranch, Fairway Crossing, Ridge Lake Shores and Woodlake were all closed out in 2009. These premier Bluegreen communities made up a total of 5,111 homesites. Bluegreen Communities would like to congratulate everyone who took advantage of exceptional values in these locations and welcome to the Bluegreen family.
Bluegreen Communities in Texas Offer Gift of a Lifetime:
As a special gift to home buyers, Bluegreen Communities offered prospective homesite owners the Gift of a Lifetime. Bluegreen Communities offered an exclusive opportunity to choose the present that fits the homesite owner's needs with the incentive that fits their needs. This promotion included incentives such as No Payments for a Year or No Closing Costs. The offer was available in 2009 on select homesites at Vintage Oaks, Havenwood, King Oaks, Saddle Creek Forest, The Bridges at Preston Crossings, The Reserve at SugarTree and Lake Ridge at Joe Pool Lake.
Trade Any Timeshare for Land Promotion:
Also in 2009, Bluegreen Communities created a unique offer that many timeshare owners have not be able to resist. At a time when the value of timeshares is at an all-time low, Bluegreen Communities started offering timeshare owners a way to convert their timeshare vacation equity into land. To help explain this unique opportunity being given to timeshare owners, Bluegreen Communities created a website called "Timeshare for Land" that explains the offer in detail.
Comal ISD Plans to Build On-site Elementary School at Vintage Oaks:
Plans are underway for a new elementary school to be built on-site at Vintage Oaks in New Braunfels, Texas. The Comal Independent School District has purchased 25 acres within the Vintage Oaks community with plans to build a K-5 elementary school there. The school site is located just north of the clubhouse and will provide easy access to all Vintage Oaks families. The land was purchased with bond money from the last election and construction will be financed through a proposed bond in 2010.
Fred Couples Captain of 2009 President’s Cup:
Fred Couples had the honor of serving as co-captain with Greg Norman in the 2009 President’s Cup held in October. The President’s Cup is a bi-annual golf match between a United States team and an International team. The U.S. won this year for the 3rd time in a row. Bluegreen is proud to have Fred Couples involved in the design of 4 Bluegreen Golf Clubs: The Bridges Golf Club, The Golf Club at Carolina National, The Golf Club at Chapel Ridge ad The Golf Club at Sanctuary Cove.
Looking Forward to 2010:
Bluegreen Communities, as the nation’s premier developer of master-planned communities, continues to lead the market by offering unprecedented offers that are in line with the quality of their master-planned communities. 2009 was a banner year for Bluegreen Communities, and the developer looks forward to another banner year in 2010.
Bluegreen Communities develops residential master-planned communities with 1/3 to 10-acre home sites - and requires no timeframe to build on the land that is purchased. Since 1966, Bluegreen Communities has provided land for sale in Texas, North Carolina, Georgia, and other south central and southeastern states directly to land-buying customers looking for special home sites that support leisure lifestyles.
