Semi-custom home builder is drawn to Overland Park by Blue Valley Schools and the opportunity to build in one of the fastest growing communities in the Kansas City area. The family-owned construction company is optimistic about home sales for the single family residential market.
Rodrock Homes, the leading residential builder for obtaining permits in Johnson County the past five years, has added a new race car to its fleet of proven winners in the home construction circuit. Already offering their award winning homes in Olathe, Lenexa, and Shawnee, the builder will now have homes available in Overland Park, Kansas. The locally owned family business may have found the best opportunity for growth right in its own backyard.
Selecting where to start a new construction project requires hours of research before the first building permit is purchased. Rodrock Homes strives to not only build a quality product but to do it in the best locations. Building homes in Johnson County, Kansas has proven to be a great decison.
According to Money Magazine’s 2008 annual list of Best Places to Live, Shawnee was ranked #39, Olathe #13, and Overland Park came in at #9. Rodrock Homes is now a part of at least one new home community in each of those cities.
President of Rodrock Homes, Brian Rodrock believes home buyers are looking at more than just floor plans when trying to decide where they want to live. “The home itself is very important, but they are also selecting the community, school system, and city which is best for their family. We understand great schools help us sell houses.”
Highly acclaimed Blue Valley School District will serve as the school system for homes built by Rodrock in Overland Park. The elementary, middle school, and high school will all be less than a mile away from these new homsites.
Another aspect the residential builder finds attractive about Overland Park is the corporate growth in the area. Sprint Nextel, Black & Veatch, Dickenson Theaters, Ash Grove Cement, Embarq, Yellow Transportation, and Zurich Direct Underwriters, are all based in the city. With those companies already here and new possibilities in the near future, Rodrock Homes maintains there will be a steady need for residential home construction.
Rodrock is determined to have his company ready to meet the needs of families moving to one of the fastest growing areas in the greater Kansas City area. When other companies may have been scaling back, Rodrock Homes is pushing forward. In fact, the company has obtained at least 10 residential building permits in each of the past five months. Rodrock said, “We are excited about the future and we must be ready for these new opportunities.”
