San Marcos Home of the Week Includes $20,000 in Incentives, Reduced Tax Rate

San Marcos, CA, March 04, 2011 --( The coveted single story floor plan is Mahogany’s home of the week. Nicely positioned on a corner lot, this home is scheduled for completion in April, which allows for selection of all flooring. Aside from the $20,000 buyer incentive, Brookfield Homes has paid off the assessment district bond resulting in one of the lowest tax rates of 1.17 percent, saving buyers hundreds of dollars per month on property taxes.

Located at Brookfield’s Mahogany at Old Creek Ranch in San Marcos, home site No. 5025 is priced at $596,900. Situated on a corner lot, the 2,410 square foot, single-story detached residence includes:

· granite countertops
· stainless steel GE appliances
· double ovens
· front yard landscaping
· air conditioning
· maple cabinets
· alarm system
· large 6,500 square foot home site

Also included with the purchase of a Mahogany home is Brookfield’s $20,000 incentive usable toward upgraded flooring, interest rate buy-downs, window coverings, or closing costs.

“Mahogany’s Home of the Week is an exceptional value, especially when compared to other new home communities in San Marcos and Carlsbad,” said Lora Heramb, vice president of sales and marketing at Brookfield Homes.

Currently, Mahogany has two homes available for spring move-in, and four homes available for summer move-in. Two homes available are single-story.

Mahogany offers many desirable home locations including corner lots and select home sites that back up to open space and offer territorial views. Single level and two-story plans range from 2,410 to 3,875 square feet with three to five bedrooms and three to 4.5 bathrooms.

As an added bonus, just steps away from Old Creek Ranch is the City of San Marcos’ 18-mile maze of hiking trails, some of which are accessible from within the neighborhood of Mahogany. Also within walking distance of Mahogany is a 19-acre community park with ball fields, a soccer field, picnic areas, an off-leash dog park and community center.
