Community Spotlight: Four Seasons in Cumberland

Schaeffer Family Homes is thrilled to throw the spotlight on one of our unique 55-plus communities, Four Seasons in Cumberland, in Millville, NJ! From the private, peaceful and serene setting to the gorgeous clubhouse and fun-loving residents, it will be love at first sight when you come to visit.

One of Four Seasons’ biggest attractions might just be the 5-year tax abatement. Available only at Four Seasons, the abatement means that the property taxes owners pay over 5 years will be significantly lower. Like 50% lower! Combined with a price range that starts under $200,000, Four Seasons is one of the best buys in South Jersey!

The first thing you’ll notice is that Four Seasons is an established community, so everything is up and running. The 7,500 sq. ft. clubhouse includes a fitness center with the latest cardiovascular and weight-training equipment. You’ll catch our residents having a ball, whether they’re playing cards or billiards, or baking in the catering kitchen. Don’t forget to check out the pool, tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts.

We offer low-maintenance, free standing single-family homes designed specifically for the active adult. You can choose from three floorplans starting at 1,380 square feet. Our homes feature 9-foot first floor ceilings, Frigidaire® appliances, crown molding, and low maintenance vinyl siding. Plus, our homes are NJ Energy Star Certified, with energy-efficient insulation, furnace, windows, and a tankless hot water heater.

Make sure you stop by the Design Studio in West Berlin, New Jersey. It has everything, from lighting fixtures to roofing samples, faucets to counter top selections. Truly a “one stop shop”, it is designed to make the selection process as enjoyable and easy as possible.

Four Seasons in Cumberland is located at 62 Cottage Street in Millville, NJ.

The Schaeffer Family has been building homes in New Jersey for over 70 years, and we’d love to have you experience this unique community for yourself. Contact Christie at 856-208-5118 for more information.

Now Is the Time To Make Your Move!

As of April 1st, 2017, Schaeffer Family Homes will be taking a $4,000 price increase across the board on all our models in our communities, spot lots, and on your own lot. The reason is due to an increase in the cost of lumber. According to Eye on Housing, lumber costs have remained pretty steady since 2014. The price of lumber, from framing to structural panels has increased up to 30 percent in recent weeks.

Since this cost is something we can not avoid, our prices in turn have to go up. We wanted to make our customers aware so they can lock in the lower pricing NOW! How can you do this? Sign an agreement of sale by 4/15/17 and we will honor our lower pricing. This saves you $4,000. We will also take contingencies and lock in the pricing for up to 60 days. Call Alexis at 856-208-5118 or by email at Alexis@SchaefferHomes.com for more information or to ask any questions. If you have been on the fence, now is the time to make your move! We hope to see you at one of our models or communities soon!

Spotlight on Berlin Boro

Building in Berlin Boro is something that we have done for many many years. Our main office and design center are located in West Berlin, New Jersey and the Schaeffer Family resided and grew up in Berlin. We are always getting calls from customers asking for locations in and around Berlin because the school districts are so great and highly rated. Children attend the Berlin Community school for Kindergarten through 8th grade and they then attend Eastern Regional High School.

Berlin proves to be a great location and area to reside in due to the convenience of everything. Shore points such as Atlantic City, Margate, Ventnor, and Ocean City are less than an hour away. It makes getting to the beach a breeze whether taking the AC expressway or back roads such as the Black Horse Pike. It is also a short commute to and from Philadelphia where many residents work or play. The Patco speedline is located a short distant from Berlin. Endless shopping and restaurants can be found in the area so you never have to travel too far for anything.

Many of those who live in Berlin end up residing there for many many years. It still has the small town feel that many people long for. While we do not have any immediate plans for a big community or neighborhood in the area, we are always looking for homesites and “spot lots”. Two opportunities remain at Renzi Estates outside our original Enclave Community. 11 Monmouth Avenue is a 5500 square foot estate home that we recently renovated top to bottom. This home is one of a kind!!!

Featuring 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a basement foundation, and upgrades such as 42″ Kitchen Cabinets, a partial stone exterior, hardwood floors in the foyer, and tiled bathrooms, the Lancaster will look perfect on this homesite which is .75 acres in size.  Personalize your new home at our Design Center and pick out everything top to bottom!
