All of these options give you the ability to make your home a reflection of your own personal style.

Keystone was ranked number 284 out of the top 400 builders in the nation by Professional Builder Magazine.  The top 400 are decided based on number of housing units closed the previous year and housing revenue.  Last year Keystone was ranked 348.  Keystone moved up 64 steps from last year! Thanks to the staff who continually give their best every day and our homeowners who are the reason for what we do.

How are you coping with changes in the economy?

We’re all feeling first hand the effects of an adjusting economy.  Gas prices continue to rise and along with them – most of our food products.  Listed below are some ways to save at the grocery store.  I’m interested to see what changes you and your family are making.  Post some money saving tips or ways you are weathering the recession.

1.  Choosing generic or house brands can help you save up to 40% over brand name products.

2.  Shop early in the day and alone. You’ll be less likely to give in to impulse buys or distractions.

3.  Avoid purchasing non-grocery items such as toothpaste, contact solution, etc.  It may be convenient but it will cost more than purchasing at a drug store.

4.  Plan meals around items that are already in your pantry.

5. The most expensive items are placed on middle shelves at eye level. Look up and down for better savings.

6. Use coupons only on items you were going to buy anyway.

Some good news in the midst of all this economic turmoil is the net worth you build when you own a home.  Interest rates are at historic lows and home prices have dropped significantly.  Despite all the bad news out there, this is actually the best time to buy a home.  It’s a safe long-term investment.

Relay for Life a Huge Success!

This past Friday was Augusta’s Relay for Life event at the Family Y.

Keystone had a team out there with t-shirts sporting our motto “Constructing a Cure”.  Our Keystone staff, trade partners, family, and friends, went above and beyond helping us to raise over $10,000 for the American Cancer Society!  This amount far exceeded expectations and the generosity of all involved was overwhelming.

Friday night was great. There were thousands of people on the field all support the cause of cancer research and patient care.  The memorial luminary walk was especially moving.  As we get photos of the event I’ll be sure to post them.

Thanks to everyone who was involved and supported us.  It’s hard to describe the feeling of seeing the community come together and fight back against a disease that has affected so many we know and love.

Green Building?

Everything seems to be going “green” lately – from cars to appliances to homes.  Keystone offers several features that are good for the environment and great for you. 

Keystone installs low “e” windows in all of its homes.  Keystone also prides itself on clean job sites and as little material waste as possible.  In the Keystone Design Studio you can choose from “green” carpet samples – made out of recycled material. 

And while these are just a few things that Keystone offers – what is of the most importance to you?  Where do you see the balance between environmental health and affordability?

Leave a comment – we’d like to hear what you think!

Reduced Homes – Great Value

Keystone has several homes that are ready for quick move-in at prices significantly lower than market value.  These brand new homes are in pristine condition and many come with included optional luxury features.  These included features may be upgraded appliance packages, stained cabinets,  additional landscaping, cultured marble countertops, and more!

Some homes have been reduced by over $18,000.  With interest rates at historic lows, this is the time to buy!  New home construction does not negotiate on prices like the re-sale market. To take advantage of this opportunity ask about these homes now.

To find out which homes qualify for this program, please fill out the Contact Us form on the Keystone web site and ask about the “Ownership Incentive Program”.
