"After one visit to The Ranch, guests are often thrilled to realize they can move forward with their goal of buying a new home. The neighborhood's great prices, coupled with the built-in advantages of a new residence compared with the fix-ups and unknowns of a short sale home, make homeownership at The Ranch very attractive, especially for first-timers," said Lesley Pennington, Director of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "Smart consumers cannot afford to underestimate the value of buying a home that is completely brand new. Couples and families who have looked at foreclosures and older homes must understand there are tremendous risks and hidden costs associated with these opportunities. We know buyers who have spent months looking at foreclosures who are completely frustrated with this process. There are no guarantees and getting an answer from the lender can take months. Buying a brand new home at The Ranch eliminates the risk, costs and waiting often associated with a short-sale -- it is a win-win situation."
