Sawgrass North Exclusive VIP Limo Tour

Sawgrass North: Exclusive Limo Tour

Since our Kingfisher model is currently under construction at Sawgrass, Adam and I decided to plan a day where we would give you an exclusive VIP limo tour of our model homes on Saturday, July 19th.

Be sure to RSVP, we have limited seats on the limo and they will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. You don’t have to worry about making a wrong turn, filling up your gas tank or figuring out where you’re going for lunch. We’ve got it all planned out for you!

Join us on Saturday, July 19th at 10am at the Schell Brothers Design Studio where a limo will pick you up for your VIP tour. We will visit The Peninsula to tour a Kingfisher model, Independence to tour the Whimbrel, Heritage Creek to tour the Heron, Senators to see the Henlopen, the Herring Point, and our currently under construction Cassidy.

Our final stop will be at Sawgrass North, so you can walk our model home, the Kingfisher, while it’s under construction and tour available home sites. We plan to be back to the Dare to Dream Design Studio by 3pm, where you can tour our studio.

We will have snacks and beverages ready for you at each stop. We promise to make it a fun day! Call me if you have any questions about the tour. We can’t wait to spend the day with you!

Bayside Welcome Center Up and Running

By Jordan Gorsch, in Bayside

Bayside Welcome Center

We are back! Due to popular demand, team J&J has reunited to bring Schell Brothers to Bayside and we couldn’t be more excited!

We are now up and running in the NEW Bayside Welcome Center! This is the perfect spot to learn about Bayside and to see if it’s the right fit for you.

One of our favorite new features about the Welcome Center is the interactive display. It’s like a massive iPad on a table where you can scroll through photos of the neighborhood and our homes. I can’t keep my hands off this thing; you’ve got to come check it out!

This Welcome Center is our new home until our Sanibel Model is completed this spring. We will be rolling out the leaseback details at the beginning of the year. Let us know if you’d like to be added to the waiting list! We also have just a few single family sites left and have released the sites for our twin home series.

Don’t forget our Holiday Incentive ends December 23rd; you won’t want to miss this!

One last thing, January 18th will be our Schell Brothers Welcome Center Grand Opening, so save the date.  More details to follow.

I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting it is to be a part of a new Schell Brothers community! To have numerous home sites available and watch each new family come in and choose the home of their dreams along with a beautiful home site and have it built in Lewes Landing is an experience I wish everyone could have! Over the past 2 ½ years I have been fortunate enough to watch this beautiful community grow and have been able to build lasting friendships with the new homeowners.

It’s been a fun ride, but I’m very excited to announce that we have just TWO HOME SITES remaining in Lewes Landing!!! It is officially your last chance to own your dream home in this desirable community! For those of you who need a refresher, or may not have ever considered Lewes Landing before, it’s located just 4.5 miles from Downtown Lewes where you have access to the quaint shops on Second Street, delicious restaurants, as well as the Lewes and Cape Henlopen State Park beaches!

The two sites we have remaining are each ½ acre allowing for beautiful landscaping and privacy from neighbors. We have an active community with a social committee for events, a clubhouse with pool & tennis courts, and sidewalks where you’ll find a lot of our homeowners walking their pups and riding their bikes.

We are currently offering an aggressive incentive to help close out the community. Right now you can lock in $40,000 off of your contract price. Incentives will be decreasing starting September 1st, so don’t miss out on this opportunity! Please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions you have about Lewes Landing. I’m looking forward to closing out this community and welcoming more happy homeowners to our family here at Schell Brothers!

Down to the last 5

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Reserves at Lewes Landing

It’s remarkable to look back and see the success we’ve had in this beautiful community. Driving in to see 56 vacant home sites just two years ago and now you’ll drive in to this gorgeous established community with amazing curb appeal with just 5 home sites remaining!

We are now going to be selling the remaining 5 home sites off-site at a new community by Schell Brothers, The Ridings, just 3 miles away. We still have homes under construction at Lewes Landing that are available to tour, and if you haven’t toured a Schell home under construction yet I recommend you call me to set up a time to do so! It’s a great opportunity to see firsthand what sets Schell Brothers apart with our Schellter specs. I currently have a Mariner, Mulberry, Kingfisher, Herring Point & Henlopen available to tour!

Now that we are down to the last few home sites we are offering stellar incentives to help close out the community. As you may have heard, starting January 1st we will see a price increase across the board in all our communities. With the incentives, current prices and remaining home sites this really is the best time to purchase your dream home in Lewes Landing!

Please feel free to call me with any questions or to set up a time to tour the community! I can’t wait to show you all we have to offer! Hope to hear from you soon!

The Amazing Option Configurator

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Reserves at Lewes Landing

With our powers combined… we present to you, The Amazing Option Configurator!

This is one of the coolest new features we have available to our buyers. When you’re on our Lewes Landing webpage you can view all of the different models we offer. I’m sure you’re used to looking at a floor plan and having to use only your imagine to see what it would look like with that sunroom or great room extension. NOT ANY MORE!

Now, when you select a floor plan you can click through the available options and actually see what it would look like. I call it the “amazing option configurator”! The plan actually changes, right before your eyes, with the options you select. Go ahead and try it out, customize your new home with what your needs and wants are! Contact us for questions and pricing on those options.

While you’re viewing our plans, check out the NEW Herring Point and Henlopen! If you’ve visited our model homes or looked at these plans in the past you’ll notice we’ve made a few changes!

The Henlopen is our model home here at Lewes Landing; you’ll see we added more cabinets and counter space in the kitchen and added a walk-in pantry! The Herring Point got a larger great room, larger 4th bedroom and a new Owner’s Bathroom configuration! Our homes just keep getting better, and its your feedback that helps!

As you may know, Lewes Landing is in the final countdown with just 8 home sites remaining! Our lucky homeowners of the Henlopen model get to move in November 1st. This means its officially your last chance to purchase in this amazing community, and last chance to tour this beautiful home!

Cindy and I hope to see you soon!

My Top 5 Features Considered When Buying a Home

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Reserves at Lewes Landing

Working at Schell Brothers, I get to chat with new people everyday about features they are looking for in a new home. Even being a home buyer myself (and my small addiction to HGTV) I thought I had a pretty good understanding of what the top 5 features would be.

For instance, I used to focus on: Location, Price, Size, Layout, and Closets. In all seriousness, those were my top 5 items, pretty much in order! As I talk to new buyers about their top 5 must have’s I’m starting to see a trend very similar to what I focused on. So tell me, what are your top 5 requirements in your new home? Write them down; say it out loud, whatever you need to do…

So now I’m curious, was your home’s HERS rating a must have feature in your new home? What is a HERS rating you ask? Well, HERS – or Home Energy Rating System – is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance.

But what does a HERS rating mean for you, the home buyer? Here’s what:

Every HERS-rated home is given a score based on its energy performance as determined by a certified RESNET Home Energy Rater. The lower the HERS rating, the more energy efficient the home. The more energy efficient the home, the more you save on utility bills each month.

Knowing a home’s HERS score BEFORE you buy means you’ll know the projected energy costs of living in that home and can factor that into your decision.

What I find even more interesting is that to be an “Energy Star” rated home, your HERS rating must score at least 100, which is what’s found in most typical new homes today. At Schell Brothers, our average HERS rating is at 52. That is 100% more efficient than a typical new home. The amount of money you could be saving each year just by researching your builders HERS rating is astounding! For me, that’s my next vacation (or shopping spree)!

I wanted to share this because it definitely changed my top 5 requirements while searching for a new home. Don’t forget to ask about the quality and efficiency that should be included. In the long run, this is what’s going to guarantee you a HAPPY HOME.

You can learn more about Schell Brothers’ high performance brands and our HERS ratings in our Schellter™ section.

I’d love to hear your feedback on your top 5 important features and hope you consider the HERS rating as one of them! Enjoy your day!

March Madness Incentives at The Ridings [video]

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Ridings

There’s a lot of BUZZ going on at The Ridings this month, from new homes under construction, our new Heron model and now – our NEW incentives for March!

Update: The incentives mentioned here are expired and no longer available.

We went back to the drawing board and crunched our numbers to offer you the best possible incentive at The Ridings. We’re definitely priced to move you!

Right now, you’ll get $10 off per base heated square foot on your new home. So, if you’re considering a Heron at 2,137 heated square feet, you save $21,370! In addition to that, we’re giving you a free gourmet kitchen upgrade with 42″ cabinets. If you haven’t seen all the cool details that come with your gourmet kitchen, come by our new model and we’ll show you.  Personally, I love the full extension, cushion-close drawers!

Make sure to mark your calendars for our “Momentum” event April 21st! That weekend, we’ll officially have our GRAND OPENING at The Ridings! You’ll be able to tour homes under construction, enjoy food and refreshments from local businesses and meet your future neighbors! It will be an absolute blast! Deloris and I hope to see you soon!!!

Lucy Loves Lewes Landing

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Reserves at Lewes Landing

Are you a dog lover? They always bring a smile to my face. Here at Lewes Landing, we have quite a few homeowners who have pets.

It’s perfect; we have ½ acre home sites so your best friend has plenty of space to run and play. We had homeowners (Chris & Nancy) come in this week and introduce me to Lucy – their NEW 9-week-old golden retriever puppy! I must say, I AM IN LOVE! We have “the loop” here in the community that is just over ½ mile and is popular for walks, jogging and riding bicycles. This is such a fun place to live with the best neighbors! Even if you don’t have a dog, you’ll love the privacy, space to entertain and garden! Stop in and tour our great community!

By the way, have you ever visited the beach during the Sea Witch Festival? It’s so much fun and they have the “best costumed dog parade” which is hilarious! The costume parade is on October 29th at 11am – check it out!

Happy Birthday Schell Brothers at Lewes Landing

By Jordan Gorsch, in The Reserves at Lewes Landing

Even more exciting is the progress we’ve made in just one year! We currently have just 36 homesites left in the community and each one is AMAZING! I love that each site here is either wooded, backs to woods, or has a view of one of our ponds! I hope we can rent golf carts the weekend of our celebration so we can give tours of the neighborhood – Really I just want to cruise around in the golf cart with good company! =)

Our one-year anniversary event will be May 21st so mark your calendars! Stay tuned for our theme and once-in-a-lifetime incentives (Yes, they will be that good). Only 33 days away – ARE YOU READY????
