Today on Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio’s episode of All About Real Estate showcases a builder who has never been on the show but is a well-known name in the Atlanta home building industry and continues to successfully cater to the needs of today’s home buyers. Eric Drooker, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Chafin Communities, joins co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick to update listeners on the builder’s activities.

Chafin Communities’ founder, Eric Chafin, began his career with a construction company when he was in his teenage years. Working for the superintendent, he would ride in the back of the super’s pickup truck and sweep out homes. He became a superintendent several years later and began Chafin Communities in 1996, joined by his brother Daryl a few years later. Their experience gives them a unique perspective of building a home from the ground up.

The builder focuses on the north side of Atlanta, mainly in Forsyth County, Hall County, Gwinnett County and Jackson County. Its communities range in price point and home type from entry-level to move-up buyers to empty-nesters, offering homes starting in the low $200,000s up to the higher $600,000s and $700,000s.

Chafin Communities even boasts the No. 1 Selling Community in Atlanta, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Book of Lists. Mundy Mill in Gainesville, a booming and growing area, will have around 1200 homes upon its completion with 450 of those homes currently filled. The community boasts two recreational facilities, two pools, a cabana, an open pavilion, tennis courts and a playground. The amenities and price points serve two main buyer groups: first-time home buyers and empty-nesters, both budget-conscious groups who are not looking for all the bells and whistles of a move-up home.

Another reason the community has been so successful is its status as a Jackson EMC Right Choice™ new home community, which Chafin Communities will proudly present to its home buyers whenever the opportunity is available. The Right Choice™ new home program guarantees five percent energy and money savings, which is a significant selling point for budget-conscious buyers.

Chafin Communities’ other Right Choice™ new home communities and current developments include The Hills at Hamilton Mill in Dacula, Creekside at Mulberry Park in Jackson County and Riverbend at Mulberry Park in Jackson County.

The Hills at Hamilton Mill is priced from the mid-$300,000s into the $400,000s and is ideal for move-up buyers wanting to live in the Mill Creek School district in Dacula. Creekside at Mulberry Park and Riverbend at Mulberry are priced from the low to high $200,000s and the mid-$200,000s to the $300,000s, respectively. The communities showcase a pool and cabana and serve entry-level buyers who want an active lifestyle, since the community’s walking trails connect to the trails of Mulberry Park.

The builder often has incentives on a Home of the Week and incentives range anywhere from $3,500 to $30,000 bonuses. Realtors can earn a one percent bonus on the Home of the Week.
