‘48 Hour New Home Blowout’ sales event this weekend

Lennar, one of the nation’s leading home builders, is offering dramatically reduced pricing on ready-to-move-in townhomes and single-family homes at its 15 communities across South Florida, says a company spokesperson.

This weekend only, during the home builder’s “48 Hour New Home Blowout” event, all inventory homes are priced to sell at rock bottom pricing in communities from Homestead up to the Treasure Coast.

This weekend, Saturday, Feb. 20 and Sunday, Feb. 21, Lennar’s “48 Hour New Home Blowout” will feature incentive opportunities that make now the time to buy new, buy now and buy Lennar, says the spokesperson.

This weekend only, home shoppers can buy a new Lennar home with no down payment and no closing costs at select Southeast Florida residences, says the spokesperson.

Additionally, Lennar’s preferred lender, Universal American Mortgage Company (UAMC), is providing incredible financing rates making a buyer’s monthly payments even more affordable, adds the spokesperson.

Plus, right now, at select Lennar communities, prospective buyers have the opportunity to receive up to an extra $7,000 to use toward a brand new Lennar home from the Broward/Palm Beach County Bond Program. Miami-Dade County prospective home buyers have the opportunity to receive up to an extra $10,000 from the Miami-Dade County Bond Program. The bond monies are available on a first come first served basis, so buyers shouldn’t take the chance of letting it run out, says the spokesperson.

The incentives are in addition to the Government Homebuyer Tax Credit extension opportunities that will soon expire and require prospective buyers to purchase a home by April 30.

People who haven’t owned a home in the last three years may qualify to receive a government first-time home buyer tax credit of up to $8,000. Current homeowners may also be able to receive up to a $6,500 tax credit. The tax credits are not loans, so there is no repayment required, but prospective buyers are urged to act now because this opportunity is quickly coming to a close.

“There is no guarantee there will be another home buyer tax credit extension,” says Carlos Gonzalez, president of Lennar’s Southeast Florida division. “This means there is only a few more weeks left to take advantage of these historic opportunities that may never be seen again.”

Lennar currently has ready to move-in homes that can close in time to take advantage of the home buyer tax credit opportunities. Foreclosed and short sale properties on the market may not close in time for buyers to receive a tax credit.

One of Lennar’s premier communities in Miami-Dade is The Isles at Oasis in Homestead. The master-planned community offering Caribbean-inspired townhomes and single-family homes is priced from only the low $100,000s. The community offers sidewalks, street lighting throughout, beautiful lush tropical landscaping, a grand clubhouse with oversize pool, sundeck areas, state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s pool, playground and a social/entertainment room.

The Isles at Oasis is at SW 320th Street and 152nd Avenue in Homestead. For more information on The Isles at Oasis, call the Welcome Home Center at 877-204-2413.

Lennar invites prospective buyers to visit one of its communities this weekend during the “48 Hour New Home Blowout” and compare the values on all ready-to-move-in brand-new Lennar homes to other options.
