Save Green and Live Green at Foxwood -- Auction on September 21

MARTINEZ, CA--(Marketwire - August 26, 2008) - Homebuyers looking to live green and save green can do both at Foxwood, a new home community by Pleasant Hill-based builder DeNova Homes. On September 21, Accelerated Marketing Partners will conduct an auction of these 18 brand new, single-family homes; each designed to be GreenPoint Rated.

Minimum bids start at only $475,000 for homes with previously suggested pricing up to $859,000, which represents over a 40% discount. Buyers can register at AuctionMartinez.com to benefit from the lowest pricing in decades.

"The Foxwood auction is a once in lifetime opportunity for buyers in today's real estate market," said Ken Stevens, principal with AMP, the Danville-based firm that specializes in the development and implementation of both accelerated and conventional marketing and sales programs. "It allows buyers to purchase a brand new, move-in ready home, with no hidden reserves or buyer premiums. The price bid on the house, at minimum bid or above, is the price paid."

With these homes going straight to auction, homebuyers do not have to negotiate with the builder on price, according to Dave Sanson, president of DeNova Homes, "Buyers are in control under this auction formula. We have built a high-quality product, and we are leaving it up to the buyer to determine its value."

At Foxwood, significantly discounted pricing is just the beginning. "This will be the first time a designed to be green community in the Bay Area will go to auction, which is an added bonus for buyers," said Stevens. "Homebuyers will enjoy the energy efficiency and water conservation implemented into each of the homes at Foxwood, in addition to preserving the environment."

Nestled on a secluded cul-de-sac, these distinctive new homes, located near I-680 and Highway 4, are perfect for getting to the office or simply getting away. Both of the spacious 4 bedroom plans, ranging from 2,544 to 2,933 square feet, feature professional, designer selected appointments and finishes that make living here hard to resist.

As one of California's first towns, Martinez is recognized for its preservation of historical charm, as well as its family-friendly atmosphere. With 16 City parks and a Marina, there are plenty of recreational opportunities available to the public. The waterfront's top-flight bocce ball courts are host to the nation's largest bocce federation. Next door, a recently completed 10,000 square foot Skate Park offers an attraction for local kids. Martinez is also home to the house that DeNova Homes built for a well-deserving family on the hit ABC Show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

The Foxwood auction will be held on Sunday, September 21 at 6 p.m. at the Concord Hilton.

Foxwood is located at 117 Silva Court in Martinez. From highway 4, exit Morello Ave. and proceed north. Models and the information center are open daily from 11-7 p.m. Visit AuctionMartinez.com or call 1-888-785-0555 for complete details.

Potential buyers must be registered and pre-qualified prior to the auction. Competitive loan programs have also been arranged through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage to further simplify the home buying process, making it a more turnkey solution for potential homebuyers. Wells Fargo will be available on-site daily to review these programs with prospective buyers and to provide details for program qualification.
