Ryland Homes Shakopee- Glacier Estates

Ryland homes a local builder in Minnesota purchased what looks to be 30 home sites in the Glacier Estate neighborhood in Shakopee, MN. According to their website prices are to be determined, but if I had to put a guess on it, I would assume they will be in the starting range of $250,000-$270,000 for their smallest model, but I will update this post once I find out. There will be five floor plans to choose from ranging in square footage from 2185-3200 sqft on the upper two floors with unfinished lower levels. Ryland Homes model, The Edgewood floor plan, looks to have their grand opening May 21st of 2011. Typically I see the model home being the best seller in communities because people can visualize the home better and this one looks to be a favorite. It is a 2756 sqft home on the upper two levels with an unfinished lower level. According to the Ryland Homes website the Edgewood model is a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath floor plan with a two car garage. I hope they decide to include a three car plan for their model because having a two story with only a two car garage tends to hurt resale. This is MUCH cheaper to do up front then say, “we will add it later”. Often times I see builders typically ask for an additional $7,500-$10,000 to put on a third stall which would ballpark to around $40-55 per month.

Glacier Estates in a nice neighborhood conveniently nestled between Eagle Creek blvd, County Road 18 and the new highway 21 with easy access to highway 169. Close to the Southbridge neighborhood in Shakopee Glacier Estates has plenty of shopping nearby. Ryland homes plucked a great area with access to large big box stores like Best Buy, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Pier One Michael’s and Home Depot. Smaller store like Petland, Sprint, Gamestop and Once Upon a Child are nearby as well, along with plenty of fast food choices and restaurants. Chipotle, Caribou Coffee, Panera Bread and Dairy Queen are some of my favorite stops. Make sure to stop by and try WineStyles, a great wine store that also has some premium beers. The owner Jason is a great guy and runs a nice business there.

Glacier Estates is such a great location because you have very easy freeway access and at the same time are close to great communities like Prior Lake and Savage. You have Prior Lake within a stones throw and Savage has SO much shopping as well. If you do not like shopping at Walmart’s grocery department Rainbow Foods and Cub Food are within probably 2 miles and easy to get to as well as the Super Target in Savage.

Glacier Estates will be within the Shakopee school district and the elementary school will be Shakopee’s newest elementary school, Eagle Creek with the exception of Jackson Elementary opening Fall 2011 on the west side of town. My wife is a fifth grade teacher within the district and I can attest for the schools if you have any questions. I think there are great teacher in the area and support them to the fullest as we live in Shakopee as well.

If you are thinking of this neighborhood make sure to contact me for any information, I do know Ryland Homes are offering incentives currently. On another note, if you are still keeping your options open for builder their is a solid local Shakopee builder to consider, F & B Construction. Some of the things I like about them is they are a local builder who still is in the area. They use quality materials like custom cabinets with full extension drawers, full stone fireplaces instead of the typical fireplace with tile surround and also they use top quality Marvin Integrity windows. The owners, The Mendens, stand behind their homes and have been in the concrete business for decades. They always include concrete driveway and build a solid foundation for your new home. The little details they pay attention to in their home show. They can build on any available lot within the Twin Cities and unlike most builders can literally sit down and custom design a home you will enjoy forever. They build homes that last, don’t cut corners and are very energy efficient. To get to Glacier Estates:

Directions from Highway 169:
Take Hwy 169 South to County Road 18 exit and continue south. Take a right on Eagle Creek Blvd (County Road 16). Then take first right on Portage Lane until Moraine Circle. Turn left on Moraine Circle. The model home will be on the right.
Directions from I-35W:
Take I-35W North to the County Road 42/Egan Drive exit and go West. Turn right on Hwy 13 N to McColl Drive. Turn left on McColl Drive to Couty Road 18. Turn right on County Road 18 to Eagle Creek Blvd (County Road 16. Turn left on Eagle Creek Blvd (County Road 16). Take first right on Portage Lane to Moraine Cirvle. Turn left on Moraine Circle and the Model home will be on the right.

If you are looking to stay in a bit lower price point, but like the general area Dan Patch Trail in Savage may be a great alternative for your home search. Ryland Homes offer 7 floor plan choices in the development with prices ranging from $222,990-$277,990. There is a good mix of two story homes and ramblers in Dan Patch Trail. To get to the development:

Directions from Highway 169:
Take Hwy 169 to MN-13/Savage exit. Continue towards Savage and merge onto Highway 13 North. Continue on Highway 13 North to Lynn Avenue. Turn right at Lynn Avenue and models will be on the left.
Directions from I-35W:
Take I-35W South to MN-13 South towards Shakopee. Merge onto MN-13 South to Lynn Avenue. Turn left onto Lynn Avenue and the models will be on the left.

If you are a first time buyer or if this is another home purchase I always feel it is best to have someone represent your interests as a buyer. Realtors are also ther to help you identify what may be best for potential resale in the future. Real estate commission is often times paid by the seller, so why not have someone advise you? Also if you are curious what your current home may sell for, I can put together a 24 hour market analysis and have that emailed directly to you so you know where you will stand.
