On Saturday, June 11th, the public will be invited to take a closer look at Sun Ketch at Northeast. This will be a day for all to enjoy, with lots of giveaways and free appetizers as well as incentives for homebuyers. The fun begins at 10 a.m. and runs through 6 p.m. For attendees who purchase a townhome over the weekend, Taylor Morrison will provide $6,000 for closing costs or towards the purchase of the home. In addition, Taylor Morrison will include a front-load washer and dryer set for those who purchase a home between June 9 and June 30.
Realtors are encouraged to bring clients to this event as part of Taylor Morrison’s new “Pay It Forward” incentive program that offers cash bonuses and commissions on new home sales, as well as $25 gas cards for registering new clients, at any one community.
“We are excited about the opportunity to introduce new residential construction to the prestigious downtown St. Petersburg area and feel that Sun Ketch, with its architectural details, variety of floor plans and affordable price point, fills a real need in the community,” said Cammie Longenécker, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison West Florida. “It has something for everyone, from young professionals to empty nesters, and the desirable location just can’t be beat.”
With prices starting in the low $200s, Sun Ketch at Northeast is generating considerable interest as a rare find in one of St. Petersburg’s most sought-after neighborhoods. As part of Taylor Morrison’s “Traditional Neighborhood Design” program, the community offers two luxurious townhome designs with private brick-paved courtyards, front porches, and separate large bonus rooms above a detached two-car garage with rear alley access. Within walking distance to downtown shopping, restaurants and attractions, the neighborhood offers its own exclusive swimming pool and is a short drive to the nation’s top beaches, downtown St. Petersburg and the Howard Franklin Bridge to Tampa.
