SPRING, TX (January 13, 2015) – New home sales in the Spring master-planned community of Harmony in 2014 were up a staggering 92 percent from the previous year, fueled by a combination of local demand for new homes and a continued stream of corporate relocations from across the country.

            Families who listed Spring as their previous address accounted for 36 percent of Harmony’s new home sales in 2014, a figure which reinforces the local demand for new homes, according to Harmony Realtor Relocation Manager Faith Bailes.

            “There’s a strong market for families living in the area who want the features of a new home,” Bailes says.  “Plus, Harmony’s eight model homes provide buyers with options to suit any budget and lifestyle.”

Corporate relocations from ExxonMobil, Haliburton, Baker Hughes and other nearby employers also played a role in the community’s growth, she adds.  About 17 percent of Harmony’s 2014 new home sales were to out-of-state buyers.

            The community also continues to be a big draw with young families as 88 percent of Harmony’s new homebuyers in 2014 reported having children 12 and under.

            In addition to Harmony’s proximity to several corporate headquarters, Bailes says the community’s on-site Children’s Lighthouse Learning Center and a new Primrose School, opening this summer, are big selling points for young families.

            “The convenience of quality, early childhood education right in the community is a huge plus,” she adds.

Last year, new homes in Harmony sold for an average sales price of $351,893 while averaging 3,246 square feet of living space.

            A master-planned community by The Johnson Development Corp., Harmony is located at Riley Fuzzel Road and Rayford Road, now extended into the community from I-45.

            Harmony offers new homes from the $250’s - $600’s from Ashton Woods Homes, Darling Homes, Highland Homes, Perry Homes, Village Builders and Westin Homes.  Families in the community also attend schools in the highly acclaimed Conroe Independent School District.
