Sales are Brisk for GHO Homes in Tradition’s Bedford Park
GHO Homes began building in the unique master planned community of Tradition in southwestern St. Lucie County in late 2011. Since then, they’ve sold dozens of “tailor made” new homes. The beautifully decorated models are open and sales are brisk. The community, just a short drive from Palm Beach County, offers a truly traditional style neighborhood with front porches made for rocking chairs, walking to downtown shopping and dining and strolls around the lakeside promenade.

PORT ST. LUCIE, FLORIDA – FEBRUARY 2013 –GHO Homes Corporation, a well known and award winning home builder in South Florida, purchased the remaining 92 lots of Bedford Park, a neighborhood in the master planned community of Tradition, in late 2011. Now, barely more than one year later, and with more than two dozen “GHO Tailor Made” new homes sold, the builder is celebrating brisk sales and heavy traffic. And a lot of that traffic is coming from Palm Beach county.

Bill Handler, President of GHO Homes, was impressed with the community of Tradition when he originally toured it and felt it was the perfect fit for his company. “Tradition is a classically-styled community, very family friendly, with large sidewalks, lots of streetlights and green spaces, and its own shopping and dining district within the neighborhoods.” Handler said. “Our homes are built – really tailor made for and by our customers, with lots of space to move and entertain, roomy outdoor living spaces, and classic amenities. It’s the perfect match.” But even Handler understood that times were a bit tough in the challenging real estate market, so he was conservative in his original projection of sales. Now, he is adjusting his projections due to GHO’s success and customer reactions. “The response has been unbelievable,” Handler said. “The traffic in our models is very strong and consistent and people absolutely love our homes and the incredible standard features included, and that we customize each home for our customer. They seem to be exactly what the market is looking for. Couple that with this wonderful community and we have a winning combination.”
Because Bedford Park in Tradition is such a short drive from Palm Beach County, staff is seeing a lot of traffic from the southern counties. “It’s an easy drive from Palm Beach County so we’re seeing a lot of traffic from there,” Handler said. “Visitors to our models are finding that it will be easy to live here and still work in Palm Beach County.”
GHO Homes is well known for delivering custom homes in a cookie cutter world. They are proud to offer homebuyers their exclusive “GHO Tailor-Made Program,” which allows homebuyers to customize their homes. GHO Homes currently offers six models at Bedford Park, including, The Glendale at 1854 square feet, The Canterbury at 1848 square feet, The Danville at 2145 square feet, The Madison at 2305 square feet, The Hamilton at 2405 square feet and the largest model, The Hartford at 2530 square feet. “These homes fit the Tradition lifestyle perfectly and based on the sales we’re experiencing, our customers think so too,” Handler stated.
Tradition Florida, which opened in 2003, is an 8,300 acre master-planned community with a variety of mixed uses. The unique master-planned community of Tradition Florida captures the charm of America’s small towns of yesterday and combines that with the amenities today’s home buyers expect. Following the guidelines of New Urbanism, Tradition’s varied neighborhoods surround a central retail district. Shopping and dining are just a short stroll or bike ride from most homes.
The town center, Tradition Square, is also the heart of community life. It hosts a year-round calendar of entertainment – concerts, seasonal festivals like Italian Festival, WestFest, and many other events and activities.
Tradition currently has approximately 2,000 residences, a K-8 lab/charter school, a 500,000 SF power center anchored by Target, a neighborhood mixed use center anchored by a 112,421 SF Publix Supermarket, restaurants, shops and offices. Martin Memorial Health Center is building a new hospital in Tradition and plans to open their first phase of 80 beds in 2014. The area is now recognized as the Treasure Coast Bio-Medical Research Center, with Torrey Pines and the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute currently located on site. The Mann Center for Research recently announced they will be breaking ground on their new research facility very soon.
Handler has a positive outlook and it’s understandable. “We’re proud to be a part of such an innovative community,” he said. “Our homes incorporate the best features of custom home building, in an exciting community with forward looking vision. We’re very happy to be a part of Tradition.”
