5 Reasons to Build or Buy a Home in Lancaster’s Cross Creek Community

If you’re in the market for a new home, you’ve likely done the necessary legwork –

researching on the internet, asking around for ideas and trying to picture where your family would be the happiest – all while keeping a budget in mind. But, it can be difficult to find a place that checks all of your requirement boxes.

Here are five reasons to carefully consider a house built by Essex Homes in the Cross Creek development in Lancaster.

  1. Cross Creek is an ideal neighborhood for families

Raising children is no easy feat these days. You want a safe, yet social neighborhood where your kids can enjoy a bike ride with other kids and you can enjoy peace of mind. Cross Creek fits the bill, says Greg Nanula, regional sales manager for Essex Homes.

“The picturesque surroundings, combined with many desirable lots, provide  enjoyment and safety in this community,” says Nanula. “The neighborhood offers a great cross-section for families of all ages.”

  1. You’ll be close to absolutely everything

Are you planning to commute to downtown Buffalo for work? Good news – you’ll be close by if you buy an Essex Home at Cross Creek.

“Cross Creek’s location offers residents quick access to downtown Buffalo and the NYS Thruway, as well as several parks and many shopping, dining and entertainment venues located along Transit Road and Walden Avenue,” he notes.

  1. Essex Homes are known for great quality

Essex Homes, who is approaching the last phase of the Cross Creek neighborhood, is a veteran company in the business with more than 26 years of client satisfaction and more than 2,000 homes built. Whether you want to customize your home or not, you can rest assured that Essex will create the home of your dreams.

“If you’ve ever visited an Essex Homes model or have been inside one of our homes, you know the premium quality that goes into every one of our homes,” Nanula states. “And it’s alway a moment of pride when it comes time for our customers to sell their Essex Home and 20+ years later they’re still stating ‘Quality Essex built home!’ in the listing.”

  1. The buying and design processes are simple

Are you and your family overwhelmed with the idea of hiring an architect and figuring out what your ideal home looks like? Are you nervous about drastic changes to your budget if you change your mind? Working with Essex Homes at Cross Creek is the remedy to your anxiety with their hassle-free process. From architectural designs done in-house to floor plan tweaks free of charge, building a home with Essex is more life lived and fewer headaches.

“Our upfront and customized pricing process, in combination with our convenient in-house selection centers, allow us to offer a seamless, stress-free building experience,” says Nanula.

  1. Your neighbors can vouch for their satisfaction.

If you feel the best advertisement for any product is word of mouth, you’ll be glad to know that Essex Homes has a high approval rating amongst buyers.

“Our customers regularly compliment us in their customer surveys, in the testimonials they send us, and when sharing their wonderful experience with friends and family,” Nanula points out. “Many have gone through a friend or family member that have built an Essex Home, so to show our appreciation for spreading the good word, we’ve developed a customer referral program that customers take advantage of regularly.”
