(Anita) Several incentives are now being offered for those looking to buy a lot in Anita’s latest housing development center.
Deer Ridge Addition is the name of the housing development project and the lots are located on the north edge of Anita.
CADCO director Russell Joyce explains that the development is within walking distance of the high school and the wellness center.
“A great view, curb and gutter, sewer and water, everything is in. It’s all surveyed off. They are nice large ½ acre lots which are about twice as big as most. It’s just a really nice first class thing that’s going over there and Anita Development Corporation went around town trying to get some incentives to get some houses started on there.”
Some of the incentives include price reductions on the first three lots sold, a one year family membership to Crestwood Hills Golf Course, a 5% discount on building materials for two years after construction starts, a free subscription to the Anita Tribune, the waiving of loan fees, and a $500 cash incentive on the first five lots sold. 12 lots are currently available but more work is being done to add lots to the project.
“The thing is they need to get a few homes built on this and after that I think it will fill up pretty quickly, it’s just a matter of getting the pump primed on a situation like this.”
Joyce adds that this project has been led by the Anita City Council without the aid of a developer.
