>CBH Homes breaks ground in Fruitland

>(February 18, 2010) Fruitland, ID – CBH Homes, the largest homebuilder in Idaho, is in the initial phases of constructing 30 new single-family homes in Fruitland, Idaho.

“We saw a need for affordable new homes in the area,” said Ronda Conger, CBH Homes Vice President. According to a 2009 Claritas Data survey, 25% of Payette County citizens are renters. The new CBH homes, which range from the low $100,000s to the upper $200,000s, will provide affordable, customizable, quality housing and the opportunity for many families to become first-time homeowners.

Another reason to purchase a home now is the federal tax credit that has been extended through June, 2010. First time homebuyers can receive up to an $8,000 tax credit if they purchase their own home; existing home owners who purchase a new home after living in their current residence for at least five years can receive up to a $6,500 tax credit.

CBH Homes is now pre-selling its Fruitland homes. According to Conger, this new development is attracting Realtors and homebuyers who have been looking at foreclosed homes and short sales. “They are realizing they don’t have to settle or go through a long process,” said Conger. “We can customize and build a new home in less than 40 days for our CBH Homes customers.”

Founded in 1992 by Boise native, Corey Barton, CBH Homes has built over 10,000 homes in the Treasure Valley. Barton has developed what was once a one-man business operating out of a pick-up truck in to Idaho’s largest, and most respected, home builder.
