Barrie, Ontario (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
Pratt Homes, the largest new homebuilder in Barrie, is formally introducing the next phase of its Manhattan community at 40 Ferndale Drive South in Barrie’s south end on Saturday, November 3rd. Phase II, will include both townhomes and eightplex condo units. Pratt Homes is offering limited time incentives including free hardwood floors and free stainless steel appliances to new homebuyers. Brisk pre-sales of phase two units have begun, while the construction of Phase III is also already underway.
“The Barrie condo and townhome market grown at a rapid pace throughout 2012,” said Pratt Homes Barrie president, Karen Hansen. “Low mortgage rates, improving consumer confidence and our proximity to the GTA have combined to make now a great time to buy a new home in Barrie.”
Pratt Homes has also launched three other community sites in 2012 on some of the last available new home development land in Barrie.
The Southwoods townhome community, situated at 213 Harvie Road just off of Veterans Drive between Essa Road and Mapleview Drive was officially opened back in April. Sales of these townhomes have been steady including thirteen over the past few weeks.
Ardagh Bluffs, comprised of thirty-five detached homes, is being developed on County Road 27 between Mapleview Drive West and Ardagh Road.
Low-rise condos are currently under construction at Eastside Village 2, in the north end of Barrie, at Penetanguishene and Cheltenham Roads.
The sales office for both Ardagh Bluffs and Eastside Village 2 is now open at the Southwoods location.
In August, Pratt Homes was voted the Best New Homebuilder in Barrie by readers of the Barrie Examiner.
“We’ve had great response in all of our new communities,” continued Hansen. “We meet people from the GTA in our sales offices everyday, looking for opportunities to purchase an affordable new home in a vibrant, growing city like Barrie.”
