Much has been written about the absence of first-time home buyers in the housing recovery. Some builders, LGI Homes, are trying to change that. With Express Homes Southwest Florida, D.R. Horton is making a play for that buyer in The Grove. Here's the announcement:

FORT MYERS, FL – June 20, 2014 – Express Homes Southwest Florida is pleased to announce three floor plans are now available in The Grove. Ranging from 1,522 to 1,805 square feet of approximate living space, these new single-family homes are fully equipped and ready for move in, starting in the mid-$100s. All plans include three bedrooms, two baths, and a two-car garage.

Close to beautiful Veterans Park in Lehigh Acres, The Grove is within easy reach of shopping, dining, and the beaches of Southwest Florida. The Grove is also the perfect place for commuters, with quick access to I-75 and the commercial corridors of Fort Myers.

Amenities include a heated pool, clubhouse, fitness center, and playground. Low homeowners’ association fees also cover cable TV and landscaping maintenance of common areas and individual homes.

Express Homes communities are ideal for first-time homebuyers, those moving out of the rental market, and anyone who enjoys great value. Each home in The Grove includes a range, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and refrigerator. Other standard details include tile in all wet areas, two-inch window blinds, 36-inch wood cabinets in the kitchen, and paver driveways. Homeowners can choose between several color palettes to personalize their new home.

A decorated Birch model is available for viewing. Visit the community at 10800 Marble Brook Blvd, Lehigh Acres. For more information, call sales representative Mike Amabile at (239) 699-5426.
