Blackrock Homes has scrutinized every interior finish and set forth a high level of interior finishes as their standard. Their portfolio consists of eight designs, ranging from 1,300 s.f. to 1,900 s.f.

These pocket neighborhoods provide lawncare through HOA, for the front and back yards. Their series of modern homes are surprisingly spacious, with careful consideration given to, “what makes a home livable?” Minimal exterior maintenance teamed with a high level of interior finishes results in a beautiful lifestyle where your priorities take center stage.

These remarkable homes are accompanied with incredible neighborhood amenities. A community pool will be centrally located and is scheduled for completion in 2020.

Movado features two special pathways within the City of Meridian’s developing pathway system. This network of trails varies from concrete and asphalt to gravel and dirt, with the surfaces changing often. Many of these pathways are enhanced as residential neighborhoods develop across Meridian, and occasionally require crossing over streets at various intersections.

Smiles abound at first Verado event

“Pick A Pumpkin,” Verado’s first neighborhood event, was held on a mid-October day, amidst a surge of 70-degree weather and warm sunshine. The event took place in the southeast corner of Verado Park, with a pop-up Pumpkin Patch on hand featuring a variety of pumpkins for homeowners to choose from. As the first event for the neighborhood, our underlying goal was for neighbors to have an opportunity to meet each other. Being on the on-site sales team, gatherings such as these are an incredible outlet for creativity and especially for getting to know who lives in your neighborhood. Nearly 40 homeowners stopped by to say hello and mix and mingle, as well as peruse through our festive treats table. Guests enjoyed an assortment of cupcakes and decorated cookies from Nothing Bundt Cakes and Pastry Perfection, among other fall goodies. With cornstalks, pumpkin garlands and hay bales framing our corner of the park, it was a colorful fall-like gathering that was fun to host, and we’re grateful to be a part of this friendly and growing community.

Among the Best and the Brightest: Verado

With over a dozen new homeowners moved in and nearly a dozen more homes under contract, it can easily be said that Verado is having a moment. Since December 2017, this new neighborhood by Blackrock Homes has attracted a lot of attention, with its close-in Meridian location and a compelling portfolio of single level townhomes and two-story floor plans. 

 
And why not? Verado’s price point, $230,000s to mid $260,000s, is well below Ada County’s current median price of $297,500. Blackrock Homes has found that there is a niche market that appreciates a high level of interior finishes on a smaller footprint. Further, these very livable layouts give a nod to low maintenance, with exterior elevations loaded with quality products, and lawncare provided through the HOA. Lastly, by being minutes away from The Village at Meridian, our pocket neighborhood is striking a chord with buyers who are choosing proximity over outlying master planned communities.

Even Playing Field at Verado

It’s no secret that the Meridian housing market is rapidly changing. As new and resale homes are coming onto the market, buyers are acting quickly in hopes of purchasing in this sought-after area of Boise Valley. This has been especially true here at Verado, located near the intersection of Eagle Rd. and Ustick Rd.

Verado, Blackrock Homes’ newest new-home neighborhood, brought its first home to market in early December 2017. Since then, 18 homes have been sold in phase 1, all averaging a mere three days on the market. In fact, none of these homes were completed before going under contract.

Due to such demand for these homes and anticipating this trend to continue, we are striving to maintain an even playing field. Starting on February 14, 2018, homes must be at the drywall stage before any contract can be accepted. This practice will provide an equal opportunity to all buyers, and real estate agents with buyers, ready and able to purchase one of our superior quality homes. It also provides buyers a chance to physically see and approve the exterior of the home.

We have a running list of buyers and real estate agents who have expressed an interest in being notified when certain homes become available. We will do our best to keep everyone in the loop. A disclaimer: we’re human and far from perfect. Please circle back with us often if you are very interested in availability.

Currently, nine homes are in the pre-drywall phase. Check back often to remain up-to-date on taking the next steps towards getting into your dream home in Verado!

Paramount – a top selling neighborhood for 2014

blog_paramain
When I ran across the attached spreadsheet reporting Paramount as the top-selling neighborhood for 2014, it came as no surprise. This amazing neighborhood continues to grow and evolve, and attract homebuyers at several different price points. It’s amenities are noteworthy, with three community pools, a great clubhouse and two acclaimed schools within: Paramount Elementary and Rocky Mountain High School.

This neighborhood is one of my favorites, having been involved on the developer/marketing side of things from its early years of 2004 to 2012, I was able to observe the developer and builder team enjoy instant success, and also dig in their heels and stay committed during the downfall of 2007-2009. For me, the intangible value of Paramount is its community of people who are always willing to share their time and talents for events and committees, for the betterment of the neighborhood.

Perseverance pays off as 2014 was undeniably one of their best years on record, for everyone involved. So hats off to you, Paramount, your success is remarkable and well-deserved!
