Remember new home construction and model homes? A thing of the past in today's economy? Not in Hughson where the sound of hammers is echoing behind two model homes of Florsheim Home's Valley Glen subdivision.
The models opened in April and of the 41 lots available, 25 are sold.
"We're doing really good," said Ruby Ruvalcaba, a sales agent for the models located at 1901 Tully Rd., opposite Rolland Starn Park.
Most of the sales are coming from residents living in the area, including Hughson, Modesto, Turlock and Ceres, said Ruvalcaba.
Florsheim is offering three spacious single story models but only two are modeled. Each floor plan comes in a choice of craftsman, traditional and Spanish styled exteriors.
• The Tully is a three bedroom, two bath home that ranges from 1,511 to 1,529 square feet and starts at $179,900;
• The Whitmore is a 3/2 home of 1,800 square feet and starting at $188,900;
• The Euclid, a 4/2 home of 2,003 to 2,107 square feet and starting at $199,900.
Sales literature indicates all homes come with concrete tile roofing, high efficiency central heating and air conditioning, granite kitchen countertops, walk-in master bedroom closets and two-car garages.
