Dreaming of a new home by summer but afraid it’s too late? Yes, it’s already April. But thanks to Rodrock Homes’ Rodrock Ready homes, a summer move-in date is not only still possible, it’s nearly guaranteed.
Even more surprising? You can still customize your home with the tile, stain, paint, plumbing, and lighting of your choosing. Getting started is easy at rodrockhomes.com, where you can click on the Rodrock Ready icon to view homes ready for move-in within 45 days or less.
Some are ready for occupancy within as little as three weeks. “Rodrock Ready means convenience,” says Rodrock Homes CEO Brian Rodrock. “They’re homes made ready for buyers within the timeframes they need, with the amenities they want.”
Many sit on quiet cul-de-sacs backing to green space. Some are within walking distance to schools. All include the luxurious extras and friendly communities associated with Rodrock Homes.
When Allison and Brian Thilges found their Rodrock Ready 2-story Lancaster III, the home was just thirty days from completion. “I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in,” says Allison, who first toured a Twigs-furnished model in Overland Park’s Wyngate community. “The flow of the floor plan, the big kitchen island—I was definitely sold.”
Thilges recently selected the granite countertops for her new kitchen island–plus wood floor stain, artisan tile, fireplace stonework, plumbing fixtures, and lighting.
“We were excited to pick out the finishes,” explains Allison, who took advantage of free design services from Twigs’ experts courtesy of Rodrock Homes. “Twigs helped us choose things that would look good all together,” says Thilges.
The Thilges’ realtor, Mike O’Dell with Group O’Dell at Realty Executives, recently sold two Rodrock Ready homes within the same week. He says there are plenty of reasons to choose a Rodrock Ready home. “It’s perfect for people who don’t have the time or inclination to go through the entire building process but still want a customized home,” explains O’Dell. His most recent example? A relocating family who was long on kids (five in all) but short on time.
Buyers who’ve already sold their existing homes or don’t want the upkeep associated with resale can also benefit. “I knew I didn’t want to do a lot of remodeling,” says Wendy Morgan, who purchased a Rodrock Ready Dillon reverse 1-1/2 story in Olathe’s Prairie Point.
Morgan’s realtor and Reece & Nichols’ Senior Sales Executive Shannon Brimacombe says her client also chose the Dillon for its carefully crafted details. Says Brimacombe, “It’s a super functional floor plan with lots of special touches, like bull nose edges on walls, box-beam ceilings, and bead board trim.”
Those touches come at a value, too. For just $398,000, buyers can purchase the one remaining Dillon in Prairie Point. The 4 bedroom, 4 bath home features a flowing main level that’s optimal for entertaining, plus a covered deck accessible from both the master suite and large breakfast area. In addition to more bedrooms, a spacious family room plus a bar area complete the Dillon’s inviting lower level.
If 5 bedrooms is more your style, consider the Hepburn II located on a spacious cul-de-sac in Overland Park’s Summerwood, priced now at $453,000. The 2-story Hepburn recently won silver for best model home in its price-range from Kansas City Homes & Gardens Magazine. Among the home’s charms are a built-in kitchen buffet, a covered deck, a master suite with a dual head European shower, and an upstairs laundry accessible through the master closet.
Like many Rodrock Ready plans, the Hepburn features a flex room that homeowners can function as either a fifth bedroom or a home office. “Flexibility and freedom is key for our homeowners,” says Chief Operating Officer Jeff Gifford. “If there’s a way we can modify your home so that it works better for you, we’ll make that happen.”
Case-in-point is Wyngate’s St. Maarten, which allows plenty of room for customization. The 1-½ story 4 bed, 4 bath home features a large kitchen with double ovens, a 2-story fireplace designed with the stone of your choosing, and a covered deck with exterior fireplace. Situated on a pretty walkout site, the home is currently priced at $491,500.
