Mobley New Construction Homes in K-Bar Ranch

I recently wrote about two new communities in Carrollwood featuring the semi-custom builder Mobley Homes.

Today I want to highlight two neighborhoods within the community of K-Bar Ranch:  Bassett Creek and The Woodlands.  They are both located in Wesley Chapel off Cross Creek Blvd.

With over a dozen home plans to choose from (and further customize as desired) and lots that start at a width of 75 feet, along with its great New Tampa/Wesley Chapel location, Basset Creek is a great place to call home!

Enjoy the preserved creek and tranquil reservation area from your 4, 5, or 6-bedroom home, like the Cordova and Verdona models pictured below.

Mobley New Construction Homes in Carrollwood

Mobley Homes is a semi-custom builder that has been building beautiful homes in Tampa for over 30 years.

Aside from their beautiful homes, one of the reasons I love this builder is their “semi-custom” specialty.  They offer ready-to-go floor plans that are both functional and luxurious, but they are able to customize those plans to fit your life.

Do you need a second kitchen?  A 6-car garage?  If it fits on the lot you pick, they can build it!

Mobley Homes is now building in two exclusive, gated communities in the desirable Carrollwood locations:  Smitter Reserve and Shadow Woods.

Smitter Reserve

Smitter Reserve has seven large lots and homes start at the upper 300s.  Their availalbe floor plans include the Briarwood and the Teakwood.

The Briarwood starts at $369,900 and features 5 beds, 3 baths, and a bonus room.

The Teakwood starts at $355,900 and features 4 beds and 3.5 baths.

The Nantucket starts at $431,900 and features 3 beds and 3 baths in the one story model, with options for an additional bedroom and bonus room upstairs.

Arbor Woods in Wesley Chapel Model Home Photos

I recently visited the brand new model homes at the Arbor Woods community in Wesley Chapel.  I’ve already written about Arbor Woods, but now I’m excited to share the photos I’ve had a chance to take of the Taylor Morrison models before their grand opening to the public.

The kitchens are fantastic, the rooms bright and airy, and the flow is natural.  From the hardwood floors to the crown molding, these homes exude elegance, but also great livability.

A low HOA fee will cover the gated entrance and a future community pool with kid’s splash zone, kid’s playground, and multipurpose trail.  There are no CDDs.

I’ve posted my favorite photos below, but please excuse the quality of some of the photos, as they were all taken with my cell phone!

Avoid Buyer’s Remorse

When you’re shopping for a home, you need to consider not just the basics (like how many bedrooms and bathrooms there are) and the frills (like granite and stainless steel), but you also need to take into account the day-to-day functionality of the home.  In other words:  how will you live in it?  What will make your daily life more comfortable?

For example, does the house you like have enough closet/storage space to keep all your clutter out of sight, which reduces stress?

The 2013 National Association of Realtors Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences talks about buyer’s remorse.  Out of the home buyers who purchased homes without certain features, over half would have paid more for:

–Central Air
–New Appliances
–Walk-in Closets
–Granite Countertops
–Hardwood Floors

Check out the stats:

Buyer's Remorse - Home Feature Survey

When interviewed buyers moved into their new homes, 53% made changes within the first 3 months.  Their improvements:

–41% changed lighting
–37% changed appliances
–34% changed landscaping
–32% added hardwood floors.

To focus specifically on the heart of the home, here are some stats about what buyer’s wanted in the kitchen, and how many of them got it:

Buyer's Preference for Home Features in Kitchens

 

And, of course, frills are important, too!  But it’s a lot easier to add granite counters where there were none, then to add in some more closet space.  So it’s up to you to decide what’s most important when buying your house.
