Top Five Reasons to Move to Riverdale in Long Beach

Long Beach offers convenient access to both Los Angeles and Orange County, boasts a stunningly developed waterfront and offers urban sophistication in a hip downtown, while older used homes or plentiful, new developments are quite a bit scarcer. If you’ve been looking for an up-to-date single-family abode at this desirable city, here are the top reasons to buy a home at Riverdale.

1. The kids will finally get their own bedrooms.
As your kids have grown up, they’ve been clamoring for their own spaces. Reward their patience with a room of their own. Even our entry-level plan allows your boy and girl to each get a territory. Up your choice to Plan 3 and the five-bedroom/two-bath will accommodate a large family.

Both Plan 2 and 3 also sequester the kids on their side of the house, away from your lavish master bedroom and bath. You’ll finally be able to get peace and quiet, if you need it, even if all the children are at home.

2. Grandma can come along.
Your elderly mom is still vibrant and independent, but you worry about her all alone in what was once your large family home. You’d feel a lot more comfortable if you could keep an eye out for her, so why not bring her along to your new residence?

Plan 3 puts the fifth bedroom on the lower level, so she wouldn’t have to climb any stairs. This room is also away from the other bedrooms, has its own bath and is near the entry, so she can come and go without feeling like she’s on a leash. Here’s a tip if she’s a bit reluctant. Offer her the chance to decorate her space any way she wants. Then take her to our design center to pick out the finishes.

3. Fun can be safe.
There’s nothing safer than a gated community, so you won’t have to worry about the kids visiting neighbors or playing in the street. The resort-style clubhouse provides a fun home away from home with its own junior Olympic swimming pool, a spa with cabanas, a meeting room, places to eat outdoors and a tot lot for the little ones.

4. Save energy, money, and the environment.
Space-saving tankless water heaters come on only when needed, which lowers your energy use and utility bills. You’ll also never run out of hot water again during your long showers. The savings continue with the Energy Star appliances, 14 SEER gas forced-air heating, and recessed LED lighting. You won’t have to yell at the kids to turn off the lights with the auto shut-off motion sensors in the laundry, garage and all the bathrooms.

The low VOC interior paint and carbon monoxide detector make your environment safer. With insulation padding the attic and exterior walls and the dual-glazed vinyl Milgard windows featuring low-E glass, your climate controlled comfort remains inside while extremes of heat and cold stay outside.

5. Lower maintenance means more time with the family.
Your new home means less time on maintenance and more time with the family. The Home Owners Association takes care of your front yard and community landscaping. They also keep up the curb appeal whether you choose the Italian, Santa Barbara or Spanish style for your exterior. Inside, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and solid surface countertops in the bathrooms and laundry are easy to wipe clean.
