According to One Investment Property Builder: The Recovery has Arrived in Texas

Share Article

In Texas, low unemployment, combined with a continued heavy influx of new residents in search of jobs, and a stable housing market, have grabbed the attention of investors across the county. All real estate is local, and in Dallas/Fort Worth, investors have come back to the market to place their money in one of the few safe heavens to be found in today’s economy. Value Builders, Inc. is pleased to announce that they have begun to see the recovery in their business.

According to many Dallas area builders, the greatest challenge today is not lack of sales, but rather, how to keep inventory on the ground with the greatly increased buyer demand and the ever more anemic lending practices of the banks. Some builders, however, have managed to come out of the downturn in the perfect position to capture the coming tide of pent up demand as consumer confidence returns in both the investors and owner occupant buyers.

Investors looking for a great real estate buy need look no farther than the new duplexes rising from the ground in the North Texas community of Lavon. Having delivered the first round of duplexes in May 2009, the Grand Heritage duplexes are proving to be another winning development from Dallas based Value Builders, Inc.

Grand Heritage boasts a 300,000-gallon resort style pool, 18,000 Sqft clubhouse, commercial grade fitness center, and close proximity to high paying jobs and upscale retail. “Grand Heritage is perhaps the best community I have ever built duplexes in,” said Glen Anderson, President and Owner of Value Builders. “The combination of amenities and location at Grand Heritage is just superb. These duplexes should attract the very best tenants: those looking for a quality place to live in a great family-oriented neighborhood.”

Located about 12 miles East of Plano, Lavon is in the eastern most part of booming Collin County. The location is a natural for residential development, due to its access to the plentiful jobs in Plano’s Research and Technology Corridor and in Richardson’s Telecom Corridor. Residents enjoy a family oriented, country atmosphere within a short commute to high paying technology jobs. Additionally, residents at Grand Heritage are well situated to take advantage of high-end retail developments such as the new Firewheel Shopping Center with over 1,000,000 square feet of shops and restaurants.

Value Builder’s duplexes are always built with two audiences in mind: the tenants who will live in them and the investors who buy them. For the tenants, each side has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on a single story, a two-car garage, and a private fenced yard. The rent is established at just $1,195 per month, making it a very affordable place to live for most families. For investors, Value Builder’s arranges for property management services at attractive pricing, secures special financing to meet the needs of non-owner occupiers, and offers quality construction backed by one of the best warranties in the business.

“We know that to succeed in this business for the long term, you need happy owners and happy renters” says Anderson. “My company does whatever it takes to please both.”

Anderson should know. Since 1995, Value Builders has built and sold over 350 duplexes in Texas. In 2006, Anderson relocated his company to the booming Dallas-Fort Worth area, and has since sold 147 duplexes to investors both locally and from out of state. He is currently building duplexes in the Tarrant County community of Mansfield which is currently ranked as the 7th fastest growing suburb in the United States, and in the town of Weatherford, west of Forth Worth. Value Builders ranks among the 50 largest builders in the DFW Metroplex, according to Residential Strategies, a consulting firm.
