Lot Incentive Available NOW!

We are currently offering a $5,000 incentive off the lot price for the first 10 lots sold at our brand new Sheldon Crossing Residential Development. Since we rolled out this incentive in April, we have already sold two of these lots. There are still 8 incentive lots available and some prime locations yet to choose from.

Here is how the incentive works:

If you purchase a lot anytime between May 1, 2014 and October 1, 2014, you will have 24 months to begin construction on your new residence. If you purchase the lot after October 1, you will have 18 months to begin construction. These lots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, you can either pick up a brochure about this incentive plan at the SCDC Office or download it at www.sheldoniowa.com.
