Santa Maria, CA (January 2013) — For James and Gabriela Medley, the search for their next home took them back and forth, between new and old, foreclosure and short sale, just about every possible option.
The fact that they decided to move to the beautiful new home community of Lavigna in Santa Maria showcases the spectacular value the neighborhood offers.
“We looked for months and months, and basically shopped every foreclosure and short sale in the area because we thought the pricing would best fit our budget,” James stated.
“What we discovered, much to our delight, was that the new homes at Lavigna actually offered the best value of all. And, as a first-time buyer, I was able to secure a no down payment VA loan, which was also a big plus for us.
“We have a brand new home, one in which nobody has ever lived. There’s nothing to fix, nothing to buy, and of course we also have new appliances and a 10-year structural warranty. We fell in love with the lot size, square footage and a very comfortable floor plan. The community’s swimming pool, clubhouse and nearby park areas are added luxuries. And, our neighbors are great.
“Lavigna was definitely the best option for us, and believe me, we looked everywhere. We’ve been living here about a year now, and couldn’t be happier”, he added.
Adding to the Medleys’ happiness is that they recently won a free 40” HDTV in a raffle at a Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce mixer hosted by Lavigna.
The Medleys purchased a Plan 13 home at Lavigna, with three bedrooms, two and one-half baths, a great room, living room and dining room.
