AZUSA, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - Southern Californians who are ready to say goodbye to the landlord are encouraged to say hello to Gardenia by William Lyon Homes. Offering move-in ready two-story designs with direct garage access, this neighborhood is making buyers feel right at home.

Gardenia's limited selection of beautifully upgraded floorplans that can accommodate a quick escrow is the perfect address for renters to make the exciting leap to ownership.

Additional highlights may include ceiling fan outlets in the bedrooms and living room, and granite kitchen countertops.

"Timing is key when buying a home and planning a move, especially for renters who are eager to say farewell to their landlord and start enjoying the privileges and rewards of their first home," said Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "Gardenia has the pricing to make this a reality and the sooner someone visits the neighborhood to make this exciting decision, the faster they can move. Prospective buyers who prefer more time should note we can also accommodate their individual schedule with spring completion dates."
