Pardee program helps family

Thanks to Smart Move Advantage, Sita and Kamran Haq were able to purchase a new, larger home that is perfect for their family in Montclaire, a Pardee Homes Henderson neighborhood they have visited for four years in hope of one day living there.

Smart Move Advantage, an independent company working exclusively for Pardee Home buyers in this market, will rent a qualified buyer's existing home for as many as three years, allowing them to take advantage of the best buyer's market in decades, according to Pardee Homes Regional Sales Director Rob Tuvell.

"We could not even think about moving without this type of program that takes care of renting our current home," Sita Haq said. "We did not want to be landlords and pay for two mortgages while we also have school and college payments."

"When you purchase a new Pardee Home, the Smart Move Advantage lease provides you with peace of mind, so you can enjoy your new home without the hassles of managing your old home," Tuvell said. "Smart Move Advantage manages the property, collects the rent, pays the gas and electric bills and will even cover tenant repairs up to $1,000."

"We couldn't sell in this market, so when we got an email from Pardee about this new program we came right over to Montclaire," Sita Haq said.

The Haq family, which includes Ashley, 17, and Adam, 3, in addition to two older sons, chose the Montclaire gated neighborhood because of the location and Pardee's reputation as a top-quality home builder, according to Sita Haq.

Montclaire is near retail outlets, restaurants, schools, houses of worship, medical centers and other services.

They look forward to moving into their new home this summer, where Ashley will have more privacy and Adam will have a big driveway for bike riding.

There also will be room for visiting brothers in the Montclaire Plan Two, which measures 2,786 square feet with four bedrooms, three baths, island kitchen with walk-in pantry, great room, loft, den and two-car garage. Optional features include as many as six bedrooms and three-car tandem garage.

Montclaire's seven floor plans range from 2,368 to 3,959 square feet with as many as six bedrooms and four baths. Prices start at $273,950.

In addition to the Smart Move Advantage, Pardee also offers the Homeward Bound program that gives prospective buyers expert assistance on credit issues that can affect home loan availability.

All of Pardee's newly designed homes, including those at Montclaire, are part of the builder's LivingSmart brand, a program with standard and optional measures that boost energy efficiency, save water, improve indoor air quality and encourage material conservation and the use of recycled or sustainable resources in new homes, according to Tuvell.
