Vibrant New Neighborhoods, Appealing Prices Inspire First-Time Buyers to Purchase at New Haven in Ontario Ranch

ONTARIO RANCH, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 24, 2016) - More and more homebuyers are planting their roots at Brookfield Residential's New Haven in Ontario Ranch -- finding their happy place at Holiday, Waverly and Summerset, three beautiful new-home collections, currently selling. Cathy and Michael, a young couple who recently purchased their first-ever home at New Haven, just moved into their Waverly home and are now living the life they always imagined. "We knew we would buy a home of our own eventually but never expected to find what we wanted so quickly," explains Cathy. "We both grew up near Ontario and saw signs for New Haven while we were in the area." After model tours, they were immediately captivated by the community's array of designs and attainable prices, ultimately deciding on a two-story single-family home in the Waverly neighborhood. "The floorplan we chose is a great fit for us," she says. "We love our master bedroom and with four bedrooms in all, we have space to grow." The home design suits their flair for entertaining, as well, with a comfortable first-floor bedroom for guests, a large kitchen for prepping meals and the open living area on the main floor. "We're looking forward to hosting holiday parties for our friends and family this year!" They also like having a private driveway leading to a two-car attached garage, which adds "a new level of convenience" to their daily lives.

Cathy and Michael, who both work in the medical field, are just as enamored with the vibrant New Haven lifestyle that includes access to The Resort at Picnic Park. "We're so excited about the pool and clubhouse, and can't wait to arrange a barbecue or event in our very own community," Cathy remarks. The community events are appealing, as well, making it "easy to meet neighbors" and connect with other residents their age.

The crowning advantage of their New Haven home is the prime Ontario Ranch location -- a setting the couple knows well. "We're originally from this area and love it here. It's great to have Victoria Gardens so close by when we want to grab a bite to eat or go shopping," says Cathy. "And with the freeways so accessible, we don't mind our work commutes at all."

When asked about the homebuying process, a brand-new experience for both Michael and Cathy, the couple couldn't say enough about their Brookfield Residential sales team. "We were so impressed with our sales team. The genuine, sweet personality of the staff instantly made us feel relaxed and welcomed," shared Cathy. "Cyd, our Sales Manager, guided us through the paperwork, dealt with all of our first-time homebuyer questions, and made the process easier than we could have imagined. She truly made us feel at home."

New Haven is located in Ontario Ranch, which is a visionary model for California Growth that's recognized as the first gigabit community in Southern California, with ultra-high bandwidth home-data services, a massive parks and trails system, future schools and independent sources of water.

The commuter-friendly location is less than 5 miles from the Metrolink station and near major freeways with direct access to I-15 at the Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road exit. Ontario Mills, Eastvale Gateway, Victoria Gardens and the new Citizens Business Bank Arena offer excellent leisure options for homeowners.

Ontario Ranch, located within the city of Ontario, California, will span across 8,000+ acres and has been thoughtfully planned with attainably priced new neighborhoods, modern amenities and abundant recreation, elements that are the foundation of a well-rounded lifestyle. The future Chaffey Park will be the centerpiece of Ontario Ranch, a sprawling open space with parks and trails for playing, walking and exploring the outdoors. It has been sensibly planned to align with the goals of the Healthy Ontario Initiative and its efforts to provide residents with opportunities to enrich their wellbeing. Ontario Ranch is envisioned as a mixed‐use area that will encompass residential neighborhoods, commercial facilities and recreational amenities. Proposed plans include retail and business space, along with nearly 1,000 acres dedicated to public open space, parks and schools. A convenient location offers direct access to the I-15 via the new connection at Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road. With the introduction of Ontario Ranch Road as well as the connection to the 60 Freeway via the newly improved Archibald Avenue, Ontario Ranch offers commuters easy access to major employment centers in LA, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties.
