Royal Oaks to Develop New Grays Creek Subdivision

Categories: In The News, Royal Oaks Communities | Posted: April 9, 2013

Royal Oaks is building and building – and now, we’ve got some incredible news to share!  First of all, we’re humbled and thrilled to have been talked up in the News & Observer last week.  Our very own Rich Van Tassel was interviewed by David Bracken about some exciting new developments (both literally and figuratively).  Thanks to David and to News & Observer for the opportunity to share what we love to do!

We’re over the moon to announce that we have grand plans to build a brand new community in Fuquay-Varina that will be called Grays Creek.  This 90-acre plot of land will be instrumental in bringing up to 250 new homes and families to the area.

As the housing market continues to stabilize, a big part of determining which home builders have successfully weathered the storm has been the ability to adapt to the demands and requirements of the buyers in the area.  It’s not been easy, but we’re confident in our business as well as the quality of our homes.  The purchase deal was that of a previously thriving property that had fallen by the wayside in these harder economic times.  Rich Van Tassel had the vision to see what this property could become (namely a new home subdivision called Grays Creek), and the positive contribution it would have to the economic health of The Triangle.

Initially this property had been passed off between lenders and sold between banks and other investment groups, some even going foreclosing themselves before the land had been last sold for only $1.76 million in April of 2011.  However, Rich Van Tassel and Royal Oaks Building Group secured the purchase of this 250 lot future new home community for $2.22 million just this past March.  Fuquay-Varina has already approved our plans and we’re getting ready to start building as soon as we can!

We at Royal Oaks Building Group are particularly excited about the larger lots in the acquisition, 70-foot-wide homesites, and look forward to utilizing these spacious areas for future homes.  The costs of lots and home sites are starting to rise again, and developers are snatching up each property they can, since all of this is indicative of a recovering and prospering local economy.

Since Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither will Grays Creek.  We’re going to be bringing in city services such as water and sewage before all is said and done, but we’re just as committed to developing this property as we are with building a brand new dream home for an individual family.  We go all or nothing, and “nothing” is never an option for us.
