Olson Homes Increases Sales as Home Builder Confidence Rises

December 6th, 2011

Seal Beach, CA. – December 6, 2011 – Olson Homes reports an increase in sales as home builder confidence rises, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo housing market survey. The (NAHB)/Wells Fargo housing market index rose by four points to 18 – the biggest one-month gain since April 2010.

Derived from a monthly survey that NAHB conducts, the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair” or “poor.”

Olson Homes has experienced a positive uptick over the last month as well: the highly popular and recently award-winning community Mosaic Walk (Garden Grove) has closed or is in escrow on all but 5 homes in the community; Rio Walk (Montebello) has 3 unsold units, Willow Walk (Compton) is 100% sold out, and Heritage Walk (Fullerton) is entirely sold out as well.

There are still homes available in Olson Homes’ newest community, Citrus Walk, and Olson Homes will be opening 8 new communities in 2012.

Citrus Walk is The Olson Company’s fifth new urban living residential development in the Covina area. The Citrus Walk community offers 37 townhomes and 8,000 square feet of new retail space along downtown Covina’s Citrus Avenue, with 12 flats over the new retail storefronts. The townhomes, each with approximately 1,610 square feet and three stories, have 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1-2 powder rooms, and 2-car garages.

The homes, built to exceed LEED green living standards, feature energy efficient amenities including Energy Star appliances; water efficient and lead-free faucets; highly water efficient toilets; auto shut-off motion sensors in all baths, space saving tank-less water heaters, and built-in recycle bins, among many other features.

The Olson Company’s numerous successful urban living developments across Southern California over the last 22 years reflect its commitment to making the homebuyer top priority. The Olson Company has garnered prestigious Eliant Awards for homeowner satisfaction, including a recent overall win for Mosaic Walk, which was in first place from almost 900 nationwide home communities. The Olson Company believes in “livability,” and implements a thoughtful and detail-oriented approach from concept through execution.
