Mountain’s Edge Discovery Days features events to benefit charities

The annual Discovery Days campaign features incentives on new homes and events benefiting nonprofit organizations at Mountain’s Edge, the 3,500-acre master-planned community.

Created by Mountain’s Edge developer Focus Property Group, Mountain’s Edge builders include: Amstar Homes, Beazer Homes, Camden Homes, Discovery Homes, Harmony Homes, KB Home, Lennar, Meritage Homes, Pardee Homes, Pulte Homes, Richmond American Homes, Ryland Homes, StoryBook Homes and Woodside Homes.

“Homebuyers will have the opportunity to take advantage of these historic low rates as well as incredible financing options, pricing and closing cost assistance during Richmond American’s Pick Your Payment Event beginning today through Oct. 3,” said Zane DeHerrera, chief marketing officer for Richmond American Homes which offers two Mountain’s Edge neighborhoods, Tuscany Canyon priced from the $190,000s and Tuscany Hills priced from the $150,000s.

“In addition to price points, Tuscany Canyon and Tuscany Hills offer pool-sized home sites, available first-floor bedrooms and thousands of upgrade options at the Home Gallery by Richmond American,” DeHerrera said. “Both communities have quick move-in homes where buyers can choose cabinets, countertops, flooring and more, and still are able to move in within 30 days.”

Discovery Homes, the newest and only guard-gated neighborhood in Mountain’s Edge, is featuring different weekly specials for its six floor plans which range from 2,200 to 4,400 square feet.

Ryland Homes’ Community Partnership Program benefits community heroes who receive an additional 1 percent off the base price of a new Ryland home. This incentive applies to all purchase agreements signed prior to Dec. 31 for qualifying teachers, firefighters, police officers, nurses and retired and active duty military personnel. Ryland Homes also is inviting military personnel to attend its free Why Buy Now seminar Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. at Ryland Homes Corporate Offices, 8925 West Russell Road, Suite 200.
