Nearly 2 years ago ROC Homes introduced a brand new floor plan to their repertoire in Stoneyway Village naming it simply, “The Stoneyway” . Introductory priced at $159,900, this 2232 sqft home had 3-stories, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 1 half bath (you can never have enough bathrooms), and two unique front elevations. Imagine; affordable, well built townhomes, minutes from the Inner Loop the likes of which had not been seen in the area for 10 years or more! In a matter of weeks ROC Homes was contracting on homes in Section 2 months before the ground would even be broken. By December 2012 ROC was averaging a whopping 2-3 sales monthly - many with $20,000 or more in added options. This substantially increased the appraisal value of all the homes in the community and prices increased nearly every month so construction could keep up with the demand.
However….all good things must indeed end. ROC homes has only 1 home remaining in Stoneyway Village and that one will be gone before the temperature in Houston hits 90 degrees…if you don’t hurry! Who wouldn’t want to own beautiful home sitting on an oversized, very private home site – something unique to townhomes in our fast gentrifying city. The 25′ x 20′ BIG backyard is perfect for BBQ’s, sunning, or allowing Rover plenty of room to run, roll, and romp. The inside features are just as sweet! The master bath features ROC’s most popular option: a tiled semi-frameless shower with separate 5′ jetted bathtub in the master bathroom. The Master bath is finished with tile floors and “his-n-hers” vanities. A huge secondary bedroom with LOTS of storage/closet space finishes the third floor along with the utility room. Tile floors in all baths, entry and utility room. Cherryvale stained cabinets in the kitchen are accompanied by sleek 12″ x 24″ tile flooring with matching tile backsplash. The price of this gem won’t last long: $189,900.

ROC Homes began to market their remaining 14 homesites in Stoneyway Village the first of September. It didn’t take long for folks to discover this little gem of a community before 5 of those homesites were sold. “We sellon average 3 homes a month but there’s obviously some pent up demand and 3 sold in one week!” said Jenifer Moore, Sales Manager for ROC Homes in Stoneyway.
The new phase features over-sized lots, corner lots, and two free-standing homes with 25′ x 11′ backyards. Starting now at $159,900 those who waited to buy, paid a little bit more for their 3-story than expected. However, no one can complain about the value these homes are adding to this established gated neighborhood.
Many of ROC Homes’ homebuyers still find the homes so affordable that they are adding anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000 in upgrades. Wood floor, granite countertops and full sized walk-in showers are most popular.
7903 Bachwood Drive available
Currently, ROC has no homes finished to ‘tour’ prospective buyers through. However, five homes have started on Bachwood Drive in Section 1 and will have sheetrock in about a month. Of those five, only one townhome remains unsold. 7903 Bachwood will feature a first floor game or media room, and two master bedrooms on the third floor. The home is priced at $159,900 and still has room for personalization if anyone is interested!
The Houston area ranked among the top destinations for residents who relocated this summer, a reflection of the strong economy and local job growth. Houston was one of six metropolitan areas across the U.S. — along with Dallas, San Jose, Charlotte, Seattle and Phoenix — where more people moved to the region than moved out this summer, according to a report from United Van Lines, a relocation company and the largest mover in the U.S., that details the top destination markets for the peak May-to-August moving season.
ROC Homes has definitely felt the increase. For the first time in ROC’s ten years of building new homes in Houston they haven’t a single completed inventory home. Those were the first to go in late 2011. The problem has been finding affordable lots to build on. Lots or ‘homesites’ cost almost 30% more this year than last for the same lot size and neighborhood. Never one to be deterred, Eric “ROC” Hymowitz, President and owner of ROC Homes, spends more than half his day, everyday scouring the Inner Loop area for lots to meet the high public demand for new homes.
One of 7 homes on Bradford Street sold before they even went in for permitting.
“We no sooner list a “to-be-built” home in MLS and within days, it’s sold. People don’t even mind waiting the 2-3 months it takes to start a home,” says Jenifer Moore, Sales Manager for ROC Homes, “What with the labor shortages were seeing, our permanent crews are working 7 days a week to keep up with our sales.”
Not a bad place to be, Houston, especially for those who have been waiting for our market to finally turn around. “Builders aren’t, can’t, discount anymore - the inevitable price increases for sheetrock, brick, and lumber are going to hit any day now.”
With those price increases of course come home price increases. It’s no long a buyers market in Houston, and demand is so high many builders are experiencing ‘bidding wars’ for homes that have barely been framed. The only folks that lose out are the ones whose mind set is stuck in 2010-11, and keep trying to get a ‘deal’. “Home shoppers better buy it when they see it,” advised Jenifer, “or they could be renting for a whole lot longer than expected.”
Sales have been brisk in the gated community of Stoneyway. Starting at $150,000, ROC Homes’ new 3-story home is exceeding all expectations. There are only 3 townhomes left in Section I and those will be hit with a price increase of $3500 on May 1st. “Job transferees, apartment dwelling professionals and down-sizing empt nester’s are taking advantage of the great location just minutes from the Inner Loop,” say’s Sales Manager, Jenifer Moore, about the average buyer in Stoneyway. “ROC’s Inner Loop communities of West U, Bellaire and Rice Military and are also picking up in sales but it’s nothing like what we’re seeing in Stoneyway.” The other attraction to this niche neighborhood of 105 townhomes are the schools – Cy-Fair ISD is one of the most highly rank school district in Houston. Contact Jenifer for more information about this fantastic home-buying opportunity now.
