Let’s set the record straight once and for all: not all builders are the same. And I know you’re thinking, “Sure, they would say that, they’re a builder.” And normally I would say you’re right.
But in this I’d have to disagree with you.
Here are the five reasons why you should buy a Truman Home – and why you’ll be proud and satisfied after you’ve bought one.
1. We make it easy to buy
Let’s face it: Calgary’s recent boom has made housing, well, a little on the expensive side. But Truman is helping to make housing more affordable, especially for young homebuyers and families hoping to own their own home.
We were recently featured in the Calgary Sun after we announced our partnership with The Attainable Homes Calgary Corp., “…making it possible for qualified buyers to own a new home, with mortgage payments of about $1,100 a month.”
Through its Attainable Home Ownership Program, AHCC connects builders, lenders, lawyers and others to bring down the upfront costs of buying a home for Calgarians with a moderate income.
We’ve recently partnered with another great home ownership solution - Liberty Home Ownership which helps alleviate one of the biggest barriers to owning a home - the down payment. With Liberty, you can get into a wonderful condo for only $1500 down payment.
2. You’ll always be in a great location
One of the things we’re always on the lookout for when planning and developing a new condo complex or single-family development is a great location. As our COO Tony Trutina recently said in an article in the Calgary Herald: “Our acquisitions team has been extremely diligent in choosing neighbourhoods that offer more value than just being downtown.”
For example, our 1741 project, which recently had its grand opening, features “proximity to transit, sitting just two blocks from Shaganappi Point LRT station, steps away from great schools, shopping, and walking distance from trendy 17th Avenue”
And it’s not just 1741 – we take extra care to choose great locations for all our developments.
3. Upscale features for all homes
What other developers consider optional upgrades, to Truman are standard features. In a recent Calgary Sun article about our SkyMills development, Trutina listed off the standard features in mouth-watering detail:
“They include contemporary imported flooring featuring high-gloss ceramic tile, plush shag carpet in the bedrooms and cork flooring throughout common living areas, plus all bathrooms feature granite countertops.”
He added: “Kitchens feature custom-set glass tile backsplashes, integrated wiring with a smart plug USB jack in the kitchen, six premium Frigidaire appliances, full-height cabinets and a spacious granite kitchen counter workspace area with integrated seating bar area and Blanco Quatrus undermount square kitchen sink and Blanco Diva kitchen faucet. Plus, all bathrooms feature granite countertops.”
We apply this philosophy and attention to detail throughout ALL our communities. No skimping on the features that’ll make your home special.
4. You help us give to a worthwhile cause
Alberta Cancer Foundation - Calgary
The home building industry has traditionally had a reputation as being cold-hearted, cutthroat industry with a dog-eat-dog mentality. Unfortunately our industry has earned.
But with Truman those days are gone. When you buy a Truman Home, you help us give to charities such as the Alberta Cancer Foundation, as exemplified by our years of participation in the Alberta Cancer Foundation Cash, Cars and Lottery where we donate a million dollar plus home every year.
5. We were winners in the New Homebuyers Choice Awards and Sam Awards
Finally, allow me to toot our own horn for a little bit. You can be proud to own a Truman Home because we were one of only three finalists in the Ne Home Buyers Choice Awards in the 50 to 149 single-family home possession category.
Being one of only three finalists is very prestigious, and shows that we’re making an impact with our thoughtful designs, beautiful features, and great locations.
