Ross Bridge Ranks Among Top 20 Communities in the Country for New Home Sales in 2010

2010 has been an extraordinary year for Ross Bridge. The new home community located in Hoover, Alabama ranks among the top 20 master-planned communities nationally for total home sales. Quite an achievement considering the Birmingham market size (49th nationally) relative to the other communities listed in the top 20 who are predominantly located within the largest metropolitan areas throughout the country including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, Phoenix, Denver and Orlando.

John Burns Real Estate Consulting developed the national sales report. They are an independent research provider and consulting firm focused on the housing industry compiling and analyzing an unprecedented volume of information.

In addition to this sales achievement, Ross Bridge was also named winner of the 2010 Best in American Living Awards (BALA) by the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) receiving the platinum award in the category of best community.

In addition to this prestigious new home community award, Ross Bridge’s Dorothy Tayloe won the Silver Award for Best Sales Manager and the Community won the Gold Award for Best Signage.

Since 2005 Ross Bridge has been Birmingham Alabama’s hottest selling new home community with over 900 families. This past year is an accumulation of outstanding accomplishments and yet, the best has yet to come.

The latest community amenity – Shades Creek Park & Pool opened this past May.

The community features several neighborhoods with a variety of home styles for everyone from first-time homebuyers and basement-style homes to stunning custom homes. The very near future will bring new neighborhoods, new builders with new home styles and price points to meet the market’s demand for what is truly one of the nation’s hottest selling new home communities.

Ross Bridge is jointly developed by USS Real Estate and Daniel Corporation. Reflecting the latest design trends in Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND), Ross Bridge aptly demonstrates that coastal areas and the big cities of the Northeast are no longer the only domain for TND and mixed-use communities. It has taken the decades-old “planned unit development resort community” concept and infused it with the latest in traditional neighborhood development design, creating a walkable community with a unique sense of place and a vibrant community spirit.

The Award Winning Welcome Center and Models are open Daily 9am-5pm, Sunday 1pm to 5pm
