Mesquite, TX – March 5, 2018 – Mesquite continues to experience unprecedented new home construction success since the 1980s with the announcement that Bloomfield Homes will build 750 homes in the master-planned community of Ridge Ranch, located at the intersection of East Cartwright Road and Lawson Road.
City Manager Cliff Keheley said, “We are excited to have Bloomfield Homes continue their relationship with the City of Mesquite. Their enormous success in Hagan Hill on Interstate 20 has demonstrated that executive-style homes can be built and sold in our community. This was realized by the fact that last year, the average value of a new homes permitted in Mesquite rose by 30 percent to nearly $262,000 dollars.” Keheley indicated that the model homes in Ridge Ranch could be ready by early 2019.
Ridge Ranch will surround Mesquite ISD’s Don Achziger Elementary School. The development will include one and two-story single-family homes as well as an amenity center. The homes will range from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet of living space. Many of the large home sites will accommodate swimming pools and three car garages. Home prices will average from $260,000 to $400,000.
In 2017, Mesquite was ranked by SmartAsset as the Heathiest Housing Market in Texas. The survey also indicated that Mesquite residents remain in their homes on average of 15 years. Housing stability and affordability within the community were factors that placed Mesquite at the top of the survey.
Bloomfield Homes was ranked as the fourth largest homebuilder in Dallas/Fort Worth (Residential Strategies, 2017) and 50th nationally (Builder 100, 2017).
