Avalon delivers winning designs
Families throughout the Tampa Bay area already know of the strong reputation Avalon Building Corp. has for its award-winning designs. But Avalon also is known for great values. “We have always aimed to provide every family with the home of their dreams for an incredible value,” said Ralph Zuckerman, president of Avalon Building Corp. That kind of assurance has been the foundation for Avalon. And it has also led to dozens of awards, including an award in early 2012, when the Tampa Bay Builders Association Parade of Homes presented Avalon with the Grand Award for its Antigua model in Seven Oaks. Customers can choose from home plans that range from 1,800 to 4,200 square feet, including eight new designs, starting as low as $90 per square foot, plus lot.“These amazing prices are a great way for families to finally build their brand-new Avalon dream home and take advantage of great values and the lowest interest rates in decades,” Zuckerman said. As an added bonus, Avalon is offering an additional $10,000 in free upgrades for a limited time. Recent news articles indicate the real estate market is turning, and that prices are stabilizing and rising, Zuckerman said. That means there is no better time to build your new home than right now because the cost of labor and materials have been going up, he added. Avalon’s 2012 Grand Award-winning Antigua model, which was built in Watermark at Seven Oaks in Wesley Chapel, is 3,654 square feet of living space and is priced from $330,900, plus lot. The Antigua model features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a den, a bonus room and a three-car garage. In previous Parade of Homes events, Avalon won the Grand Award for its Avalon IV model, which is 3,170 square feet and is priced from $290,900, plus lot. The Avalon IV also features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a den, a bonus room and a three-car garage. One of Avalon’s newest luxury designs is the Bella Vista model, a 4,127-square-foot home that starts at $424,900. “We literally wrote a wish list of all the latest, most dynamic and ‘wow’ features we could ever want in a home and this model incorporates them all – and at a surprisingly affordable price,” he said. “You have got to see this amazing home; check out the Bella Vista photo gallery on our website.” Visit TampaHomeBuilder.com to see the Bella Vista design in the “Models” section, as well as testimonials from customers touting their positive building experiences and Avalon’s quality. The 18-year-old home builder, which builds throughout Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties, offers a customer-first approach and will customize their plans to meet customers’ needs. Avalon is also known for building these beautifully designed homes on your own lot or on one of its lots, he said. “We are happy to take a look at your site and give you feedback and answer any questions. If you need a lot, give us a call. We have beautiful half-acre, one-acre and multi-acre home sites throughout the Tampa Bay area. “And if you currently own a lot and do not wish to build, we can help you sell your lot.” Avalon’s semi-custom building expertise means the company adapts existing designs to accommodate the home buyer. “For our semi-custom work, we gladly make changes to plans to fit your family’s needs,” he said. All Avalon’s home plans also feature details that would be considered upgrades by many builders, but come standard in an Avalon-built home. Some of the features include granite countertops in the kitchen, Corian countertops in the bathrooms, all-wood cabinetry, stainless-steel appliances, and energy-efficient double-paned low-e windows. One of Avalon’s communities with the new floor plans is Autumn Oaks, on County Line Road in northern Pasco County. “Autumn Oaks is a mature, beautifully maintained community of 300 homes, and features rare, half-acre (100 by 200 feet) wooded privacy lots offering peaceful views and plenty of room between neighbors,” Zuckerman said. “Home packages including a half-acre wooded lot start in the mid $200,000’s. Best of all, with only $7,900 to $9,900 down, your family can move into a brand new 1,800- to 2,600-square-foot home on a spacious lot in a great, established community.” For more information about Avalon please call (813) 907-3431 or visit www.TampaHomeBuilder.com.
