5 Great Reasons to Buy a Model Home in Southern California

So Cal Model Homes

Touring the model homes at a Taylor Morrison So Cal new home community is a magical experience. And it’s not by accident. Our talented design firm work along with our internal team to make it that way.

Model homes are meant to be spectacular, bringing the floor plan to life, showing prospective buyers the very best that their new California home can be. Model homes are designed to make a real impact on everyone who walks through the front door.

When you get the chance to buy one, don’t let the opportunity pass you by. Here are five great reasons why buying a Taylor Morrison model home is a one-way ticket to the good life.

1. Get More Designer Touches! Model Homes in So Cal Feature Tons of Upgrades

Developers put their best foot forward when designing and building their model homes. This means eye-catching countertops, stunning hardwood floors, custom tilework, floor plan expansions and more.

Instead of stressing over which options are worth the money, you walk straight into a home that’s been optimized by a professional design team. If your new home was crafted to impress hundreds of buyers, imagine how your friends & family will feel.

2. Enjoy a Larger Floor Plan

Not every floor plan in a new home community will be featured with a model. Builders tend to showcase their larger, more popular plans for customer walk-throughs.

Buying a model home means you’ll have plenty of room to stretch out.

Enjoy flex space to set up a home gym, den, study, library, office or play room. From lofts to extra storage and additional square feet of closet, the bigger the floor plan the greater the possibilities.

3. Take Advantage of the Hottest Design Trends

Choosing the perfect layout to suit your needs can be taxing. The beauty of a model home is that they tend to feature all the newest features buyers are after, eliminating the anxiety.

From open-concept arrangements to spacious owners’ retreats, covered outdoor living and grandiose entertainment spaces, model homes are fashioned to appeal to the most common needs and wants of today’s new home buyer.

4. Get More Goodies with Less Added Expense

Purchasing a model home will certainly cost more than opting for a base model. Naturally, someone’s got to pay for all those extras and high-end building materials.

But given that the builder writes off part of these costs as expenses for selling the other homes, buyers often get an exceptional home for less than they’d pay if they’d chosen the same list of options and upgrades for a to-be-built home.

When you calculate in the value of all the bells and whistles that come with a model home, they work out to be a pretty slick deal.

5. Move-In Quick with the Convenience of a Ready Now Home

Model homes take move-in ready to the next level. Sometimes high-end furnishings can even be included at a discount in the final price.

A model home can be a great choice when you’re hoping to turn the key and settle in immediately to your new place.

Know When Model Homes in So Cal Become Available

At Taylor Morrison’s new home communities in Southern California, model homes are only released when the community is nearly sold out. Buyers who fall head over heels in love with a model home often need to wait for a long time before the property hits the market.

But what if there were a way to find out which So Cal housing developments are releasing their models for sale right now?

Bingo. More than a dozen brand new model homes are hitting the market from Irvine to San Juan Capistrano as we speak. If you act fast, one of these dream homes might be yours.

Bear in mind that some models can only be seen by appointment only. Ring up the community sales manager first to schedule a tour.
