Here are a few of the top transactions in the past eight years, according to the Orange County Register. And don’t worry. You won’t find any of these properties at any of the developments by Brandywine Homes.

Congratulations on the purchase of your new house! While this is an exciting time, the thought of actually moving into your new home can seem daunting. Consider the following moving tips to help make this potentially overwhelming process a little easier.

Sort Your Belongings

To make the actual moving day less stressful, take the time to prepare in advance. First, sort through your belongings to determine what you really want to bring with you. It is likely that some of your items are not longer used or important. Don’t waste the time and effort moving things that you will not be needing in your new home. Instead, either throw away or donate these belongings. If you are looking to make a little money, consider holding a garage sale. For a little work, you can earn some cash and find a new owner for your stuff. Your ultimate goal is to not take things that you don’t need, however. So, implement whatever way is best for you to rid yourself of unnecessary items. Read More >

Brandywine Homes has begun vertical construction at Lotus Court, a new community offering 13 townhomes on Duarte Road near Station Square, a newly revitalized transportation hub in Monrovia.

Residents will have access to a new Foothill Gold Line transit stop at Duarte Road and Myrtle Avenue, just steps away from the development.
