From now until August 3, the Southwest Home Builders Association and the Moore Home Builders Association will be be showing in the I-240 corridor area. Tours run from 1pm to 7pm and are free and open to the public. The showcase is somewhat smaller than in previous years because home sales have been brisk. Event chair Aaron Tatum relates that “Builders just don’t have as much inventory as in years past.” The building boom in the Southwest OKC-Moore area doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, and the builders featured in this showcase plan to build between 40-60 new homes apiece this year alone. Subcontractors seeking residential home building leads might want to check this showcase out.
The southwestOklahoma City area offers stable interest rates and steady job growth in the metro area, both of which Tatum cites for creating “the perfect environment for home buying.” With its nearness to Tinker Air Force Base, quality school systems, uncongested roads, and easy access to the interstate, houses in southwest Oklahoma City and Moore are in high demand by home seekers. The demand is also related to the commercial development boom that has come to Southern Oklahoma city. As shopping, dining, business, services, and entertainment opportunities have sprung up, interest in residential development began to take off.
In keeping with its commitment to civic betterment, the sales proceeds from two of the showcase homes will go to charity. The Southwest Home Builders Association charity property at 821 Lago in Sendera Lakes was built by Meeks construction. It is a 3000-sq ft 4 bed/ custom home with custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, oil-rub bronze fixtures, iron fencing, wood floors, and gorgeous views of the pond.
The Moore Home Builders Association charity property 1812 NE 27 in Siena Ridge, built by Affinity Homes, features custom Knotty Alder cabinetry, a chef-caliber kitchen with a gas range, Carrera marble tiling, hand-scraped wood floors, and a privacy fence.
Other contractors participating in the showcase are: Evans Fine Homes, Sun Custom Homes, 4 Corners Homes, Paul Frolich Homes, R&R Homes, Huffman Construction, Aaron Tatum Custom Homes, Marvin Haworth Homes, Dub Stone Construction, Harbor Homes, Mashburn Faires Homes, Scissortail Homes, Elie Quality Homes, Vesta Homes, E-Z Living Homes, and Erich Cheatham Construction.
