Buying a new home can be scary, exciting, frustrating, and fun. Buying a home depends on where you want to live and what sort of lifestyle you want to have. A new home may or may not be the best fit for you and your family. But with California’s housing market on the rise, 2017 makes for a great year to buy a new home. There are a lot of options available.

Living in the Inland Empire gives you access to some amazing features. But one more thing to be appreciative of, is the economic growth and development over the past few years. 2016 showed real promise to the housing market. Now heading into this new year, buying a home seems like a great idea.

I have looked around and noticed that the new housing developments in the Inland Empire are state of the art and fairly affordable! Trust me, you will want to take a look for yourself.

I have comprised a list of a few great housing developments around the Inland Empire. If you are looking for cheap homeowners insurance in California, you may be able to get a discount when purchasing a new home.

Here is what I have found:

  1. Camden @ Park Place: This housing development is located in Ontario, California. This new resort-style community offers a pool and fitness center and is of course gated. Houses here start at $473,000. The home builder is CalAtlantic Homes.
  2. Cypress @ Rosena Ranch: This housing development is located in San Bernardino, California. This is a family friendly master-planned community and house prices start at $515,000.
  3. Camino Pacific: This housing development is located in Fontana, California. This community boasts itself on being a solar community. Houses start at the low $400 thousands for a 2000+ sq.ft. home. There are a few different models to choose from and the manufacturer is Lennar. 

4. Cambria and Sienna Homes: This housing community is located in Chino, California. This new community has five different models to choose from starting at $470,000. They are starting construction in 2017 and hope for a great turnout of prospective buyers. Each home is at least 2000 sq.ft. and are built by a company called D.H. Horton.

5. Sierra Crest- The Yosemite Collection: This housing development is located in Fontana, CA and range from $456,000 to $467,000. These homes have more of a classic build instead of the Mediterranean style which is so popular. They call this community “California’s First Net Zero Community”. This means that any energy used by the homes built here is roughly equal to the energy amount created. These are large homes, usually around 3000 sq.ft.

6. Terrassa Villas: This housing development is located in Corona, California. The prices range from the mid 400 thousands to the mid 500 thousands. It is a green smart living community and is gated. Built by TRI Point Homes, these homes are really beautiful.

7. Montarra At Villa Borba: This housing development is located in Chino Hills, California and is more of a luxurious option. These homes are a little pricier than the first six. Prices range from $935,000 to $1,020,000. That means you will get a house that is over 3200 sq.ft. and at least 4 bedrooms. There are eight different models to choose from and all exceed one’s expectations of a family home. The builder of these homes is CalAtlantic, and they have outdone themselves (if you can afford the price tag).

Home Ownership Is In Reach!


Home ownership is a beautiful thing. Getting your cheap homeowners insurance in California is simple. And you could save big by being an owner of a newly built home. Most of these newer homes also have sprinkler systems installed, optional solar panels, and come with alarm systems.

Some of these features will help you save on homeowners insurance. We all know that the first payment of the month goes to the mortgage, but the second goes to the insurance. It is important to be protected!

Living in a community like these usually means added features, such as a pool or gym. Sometimes this means you are saving money here as well. So while the price tags seem a little steep to some, you have to take into consideration the value of the home and the features involved.

Is it worth it to you to live in a new community with all of the newest amenities? Or are you more of an old-school fixer-upper type? If you live in the Inland Empire, you might want to consider one of these new homes sites. Shop around a bit too! Some of these homes are still being built and you could own one with a brand new coat of paint.
