40 Years Later: A Buyer’s Perspective

By Michelle Capaldi, in The Avenue

Dan and Kathy Cochran, our first buyers at The Avenue, recently shared this special story with me, and I wanted to pass it along to you.

Dan’s Words:
“In 1972, a few months before we were to be married, we pooled our savings and put down $1,500 on what was to be our first of many homes together. Although it was being built for us, at $19,999, the selections available to us were few: color of carpet, color of appliances, and color of counter tops. Period. A few years later corporate life put us on the road, and in five more cities we bought new but already built homes in traditional suburban developments.
Now, exactly 40 years later, we are building our retirement home at The Avenue. The location is perfect for walking to the beach, library and restaurants; the home design is well conceived, affording us first floor living with generous second floor guest space; the high quality of construction gives us peace of mind; and, yes, we were able to make personal selections, finally making this OUR home. We are thrilled with The Avenue and the Schell Brothers team.”
