Goodall Homes plans 206 units in Gallatin

636040992319762791-Patterson-Farms

Goodall Homes is looking to build 206 homes along state Route 109 near the Clear Lake Meadows subdivision in Gallatin.

The Gallatin-based developer is seeking approval of a preliminary master development plan and rezoning request of 65.19 acres in the area. If approved by city officials, the request would allow for the construction of Patterson Farms, a 146 single-family home and 60 townhome development off Clear Lake Meadows Boulevard near Nichols Lane.

“There has always been, especially in Gallatin, a huge demand for housing for less than $250,000,” said Koby DuMont, land manager for Goodall Homes. “We want to get a product on the ground that people want, and we think this product is going to meet that demand.”

The proposed development would be built on land that was originally planned to be sections nine and 10 of the Clear Lake Meadows subdivision, according to Kevin Chastine, a planner with the Gallatin Planning Department.

Single-family homes will be between 1,600 and 2,400 square feet in size and range in price from about $180,000 to $220,000, according to DuMont. The majority will be two-story with some one-story homes with at least an optional bonus room offered.

“We’re trying to target a lower price point, but we don’t want to give up on the overall appearance of the community,” DuMont said. “They’re all going to have ornamental mailboxes and entry monuments that are going to be pretty similar to Fairvue’s. We want it to be kind of simple, but we want it to be elegant.”

The townhomes will be a similar product to Goodall Homes’ nearby Lenox Place development, but will not have a 55 and older age restriction requirement. The units will be between 1,600 and 1,800 square feet in size and prices are expected to be about $180,000 or in the low $200,000’s.

“Lenox has been an awesome project for us over the years, but we don’t want something that is going to look the exact same,” DuMont said. “The goal is to differentiate between the two… they’ll still look very similar, but they will have different color schemes and things like that.”

The Gallatin Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on the plan when it meets  July 25. Should it pass the planning commission, the plan must then pass two readings of the Gallatin City Council, and a public hearing must also be held.

If approved, an estimated timeline for construction of Patterson Farms is expected between 2016 and 2020, according to the plans submitted to the city.

Goodall Homes has also purchased section six of Clear Lake Meadows and plans to build 27 homes on the property. Work on the section could begin within the next three months and will tie into Patterson Farms once completed.

“This is a beautiful neighborhood as it is, so we’re going to follow their architectural restrictions,” DuMont said. “We want to match what they’ve already done and we’re going to try to make sure that what we do compliments their neighborhood.”

Goodall unveils plans for new White House development

If 2016 finds you thinking about a new home, but staying in the Sumner County community is a must – Goodall Homes is unveiling plans for a new neighborhood in the rolling hills of Ben Albert Road.

The new development – Settlers Ridge is located on the Sumner County side of White House, and will feature 51 single family homes with an array of different floor plans, starting at below $200,000.

“We will offer six to eight floor plans, with a nice mix of one and two-level homes,” said Rachael Overall, director of marketing for Goodall.

Homes will feature two-car garages, luxurious owner’s suites, open kitchen and living areas, optional bonus rooms and energy efficient systems. Overall said the average price range is expected to be in the upper $100’s. Some of the amenities will include sidewalks, common space and a designated park area.

Construction of the first homes is expected to start in early summer; with the complete buildout complete with 24 to 30 months, Overall said, adding that preselling for the homes will begin mid-summer.

WHY A GOODALL HOME?

Goodall Homes builds all of its homes to new energy program standards – most of which are above industry standard, saving money on energy costs, which is a continuing top-of-mind concern for new homebuyers, Overall said.

The company uses R49 insulation – which is four inches more than industry standard. Not only does that fort inside the homes, it translates into savings each year in heating and cooling costs. Other features used include Energy Star® Calking, Low E windows, and CFL Lighting, to name a few. To find out more about Goodall’s home energy program, visit goodallhomes.com/energy-efficiency.

Millstone in Hendersonville is the largest new development in the Nashville area located 20 miles northeast of the center of downtown Nashville, Tenn. As builder Goodall Homes proclaims on its website, the community is “just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, yet in close proximity to schools, shopping, entertainment, and multiple amenities that support active family lifestyles.”

The community opened this year with 45 homes already sold as of December, and Millstone will have 614 homes upon completion. Goodall Homes expects that the community to be completed in 8-10 years, which puts its estimated time of completion between 2023 at earliest and 2025 at the most conservative.

When completed, the 614 homes of the master-planned community will consist of 420 single family detached houses and 194 villas, cottage homes, and town homes aiming to be the “true heart of life in middle Tennessee.” With farm-inspired design and resident-oriented programming, Millstone aims to entice first-time homebuyers, young families, career professionals, and active adults alike to put down roots.

At the core of the community will be the amenity area with the Town Center clubhouse as its anchor. Millstone’s amenity area will offer residents a variety of recreation options, including a farm stand, resort-style pool, fitness center, and playground.

Much of the amenity area is designed to create a welcoming environment for outdoor living. Incorporating the beauty of the surrounding area, the natural community lake has walking trails that connect to sidewalks throughout the community. Goodall Homes designed The Farm Stand to cater to residents of Millstone and the surrounding areas alike by housing a weekly farmer’s market, providing the area’s residents with fresh produce as well as a place to do commerce for local farmers and vendors.

In addition to the farmer’s market, this indoor/outdoor space will also be used as the neighborhood CSA(Community Shared Agriculture) pickup, outdoor workshops, and live music on special occasions. “This will be a great addition for the local residents and serve as a place where students will attend field trips and learn more about agriculture from the University of Tennessee’s master gardeners,” according to Rachael Overall, director of marketing at Goodall Homes. The community builder plans to partner with the University of Tennessee’s Agriculture Extension program to build and maintain the community’s herb garden and courtyard.

Whether buying single-family detached or one-level attached cottages, floor plans at Millstone exceed 1,500 square feet and can reach more than 3,800 square feet. Some plans offer the luxury of walk-in pantries, sunrooms, gourmet kitchens, and covered patios. Many, like the Lexington model, have the option of an extra bedroom with full extra bathroom in place of a bonus room, or a second master suite in lieu of a bonus room like the Jefferson model.

Exterior options for different plans vary but include front elevations like French Country, Tudor, or Victorian. Some, like the Lexington, also offer different roofline options with a choice between a cottage-style hip and valley roof or a more traditional side-gabled roofline featured in the Homestead option.

Not satisfied with simply providing green produce to their community, Goodall Homes has taken several steps to ensure the homes at Millstone exceed industry standards for energy efficiency. “Goodall Homes is committed to helping homeowners take control of energy costs,” said Overall. By partnering with LP® Building Products and using LP® Techshield® as a standard, houses built by Goodall Homes have a lower attic temperature by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, thus reducing air conditioning costs.

Another feature that helps keep Goodall Homes energy-efficient is the above-standard insulation used. “More than 90 percent of homes are under-insulated. Goodall Homes uses R49 insulation, which is almost four inches more insulation than the industry-standard R38 insulation. More insulation helps save money on energy bills and increases comfort within a home,” said Overall. Other green features such as Energy Star® caulking, low-E windows, and CFL lighting allow Goodall Homes to save homeowners several hundred dollars per year on utility bills and let their customers breathe easier with the knowledge that their home is as good for their wallet as it is for their family.

Goodall Homes has been building since 1983, and has been the recipient of national and local awards. The builder has received awards several times in previous years, notably making the Nashville Business Journal’s list of the Top 10 Fastest Growing Companies for the last four consecutive years. They have also been recognized as one of Tennessee’s Top Workplaces from 2012-2015 by The Tennessean and they won the 2016 National Housing Quality Silver award.

The highly-decorated builder is now working on exciting new floor plans to introduce in 2016, and will continue to offer one-level living homes. “Goodall Homes is proud to be the only builder in middle Tennessee who specializes in one level living homes in many of our floor plans,” said Overall. The one level living homes, like many of those at Millstone, offer features that make a home easy to live in and visit for all seasons of life, and all within easy reach of vibrant Nashville.

Hendersonville is part of Sumner County and the Nashville MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area), an area that has grown by nearly half a million people since 2000 and supports a vigorously growing job market. In fact, it is one of the fastest growing in the nation; Nashville is already almost as populous as Boston, and is set to surpass Memphis as the most populous city in Tennessee if not this year, then in the next two years.

Hendersonville is part of these fast growing communities in Tennessee, and attributes its rapid growth to geographic location and scenic beauty. Millstone is set to provide new residents with the best of both the city and country life has to offer,“ said Overall. “As the Nashville market continues to flourish, we are making plans to expand into additional submarkets within the Nashville MSA.” But in Hendersonville, a city that encompasses 38 square miles of land and 26 square miles of shoreline on Old Hickory Lake, residents might never guess their proximity to a bustling city like Nashville, until they want to.

Years the company has been in the home building business: 32. Years I have been in the industry: 9.

Describe the company and explain what makes it unique. How did you become involved in real estate? My father is a retired builder from White House, Tenn. I have been around new construction most of my life.

Goodall Homes was building in White House at the time I was interested in selling new home construction. I met Todd Reynolds, a VP with Goodall, and called him weekly until he hired me. Todd brought me  on board as a new home consultant and his first new hire in July 2007.

The culture of Goodall Homes is amazing — the focus is customer based, delivering homes with integrity and care. Throughout the years, I’ve been asked to sell and manage communities as if they were my own business. This type of culture has taught me to become the business woman I am today.

I have a voice, ideas are welcomed. Additionally, I have learned how to make decisions and our management provides the tools I need to be successful both professionally and personally. The Goodall family and the management team have created an environment that allows us to truly take care of homeowners, which makes our sales team very proud.

Where in the Nashville region are you active? Sumner County. Since 2007, I have sold new home construction in multiple communities. I am a member of Sumner Association of Realtors (SAR) where I have served on committees and also as a chairman.

Goodall Homes’ culture showed me that giving back to our community is one of the greatest blessings. Goodall Homes also sets a good leadership example emphasizing the importance of serving in our industry. In 2013, I served on the board of directors for the Sumner Association of Realtors, as first vice president 2014 and president elect 2015. This year I will serve as the 2016 president.

I am honored to have been a recipient of the Home Builders of Middle Tennessee Sales Person of the Year award in 2014 as well as the Realtor of the Year for SAR for 2014. There were many individuals at Goodall Homes that helped make this possible. It has truly been a team effort that has led to my success in the real estate industry.

When selling a home, what can the owner do to maximize its value? The top three things I recommend to someone placing their home on the market are: home inspection, staging and de-cluttering. Prior to listing the home, have a home inspection for any repairs needed. Staging a home will help deliver the best first impression to a potential buyer. Last, de-clutter your home. Less is better when selling a home.

What advice do you have for clients who are preparing to buy a home? What steps should they take? Contact a real estate professional who can do all the work for you.

Once you have hired a Realtor, he/she will set up showings and gather information on the area. If you have a home to sell, your real estate agent can advise you on how to prepare your home to maximize the selling price.

How is technology changing the way people buy and sell houses? The Internet has definitely changed the way people buy and sell homes. Today’s buyer is looking for information prior to onsite showings. Customer service starts on your website by quick response time, accurate information, photos, virtual tours and area information.

Now when they call you, most likely they have conducted research from your website and they are excited and are ready to view the property.

What features are the most popular with today’s buyers? One-level, open floor plans are in big demand. Baby boomers are downsizing and want one-level living with high-end finishes.

Additionally, granite, hardwoods and crown molding are popular. Customers also are looking for energy saving features. This starts with the construction of the house. For instance, insulation, electrical, appliances and plumbing all play a roll in providing energy efficiency.

Goodall Homes builds all homes to above industry standards to maximize energy efficiency, which helps lower energy costs for homeowners. Goodall Homes’ Carellton and StoneBridge communities feature an energy room that educates buyers on how we provide energy efficiency when building each home.

What is the hallmark of the service you provide to your clients? Listening to them. Everyone is buying or selling for some form of life change. People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.

In order to truly provide good service, you have to understand your client’s wants, needs and why they want to make a change.

Four middle-Tennessee counties among top growing in the country

Categories: Davidson County, Housing Market, Investment Opportunity, Nashville Area Homebuilder, New Homes Nashville Area, Realtor News, Sumner County, TN Homes, Williamson County, Wilson County | Posted: October 23, 2015

(From WSMV Channel 4 on October 20th.  For link to article with VIDEO, click HERE.)

 

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) –

Nashville is expected to overtake Memphis as the biggest city in Tennessee in the coming years.

As fast as Nashville is growing, the surrounding counties are growing even faster. Four Middle Tennessee counties are among the top 100 fastest growing in the country.

Since 2010, Williamson County has grown 12 percent, making it the 34th fastest growing county in America.

Matthew Hill, redistricting supervisor with the state comptroller’s office, is in charge of making all the numbers make sense.

The comptroller’s office has taken all of the U.S. Census numbers and has come up with some new trends for the state.

“If you really look at Middle Tennessee, four of the fastest growing counties in the entire United States are here,” Hill said.

Montgomery, Rutherford and Wilson counties are experiencing double-digit growth. Sumner, Davidson and Maury counties are also growing rapidly.

Nashville could pass Memphis as the biggest metro area by the end of the year, but certainly will by the time of the next census in May 2017.

“You will see the trends of Nashville up 9,000 to 10,000 a year, and you see Memphis trending down,” Hill said.

Even with 41 Tennessee counties losing population, Middle Tennessee is so strong that the entire state is on track to replace Indiana as the 16th most populous state in the country.

By 2020, the state will know if it picks up a congressional seat. With redistricting, Middle Tennessee could have more congressional and statewide political power.

Nashville is now approaching Boston in terms of population.
