“Selling 10 of 17 homes and then winning 10 awards supports what we already know—our community offers new homebuyers the homes and lifestyle they desire. I believe buyers confirmed this with their dollars and our industry confirmed it with these awards. We’re appreciative to all of them.”
Eleven Heritage builders showcased a variety of floor plans—many of which are located in a collection of four new neighborhoods in the Rolesville section of the community. Since the close of the Parade of Homes, two other Heritage entries have sold—bringing the final sales tally to 12 homes.
