CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - AV Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVHI) has officially closed escrow on its first Triangle area community in the company's new Carolinas division with Creekside at Bethpage.

AV Homes will begin land development in the second quarter 2014 and will launch Creekside at Bethpage for pre-sales in early 2015.
Bethpage is nestled in the prestigious Brier Creek area in the heart of Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill (The Triangle).

Residents of Creekside at Bethpage will have easy access to nearby Raleigh-Durham International Airport, world-renowned Research Triangle Park, well-respected Duke Medical Center and other top-notch medical facilities. The community will also provide close proximity to major universities for lifelong learning as well as to I-40 and the 540 interchange for easy access to shopping and dining. The Triangle is in a prime location with a temperate climate and proximity to the mountains and some of the East Coast's most desirable coastline.
AV Homes is known for its successful communities such as Solivita, Kissimmee's four-time winner as one of the top active adult communities, and CantaMia in Goodyear, Ariz., named one of the 50 Best Communities in the U.S. by Where To Retire magazine.
