Rudy Gonzales of Newman never dreamed he’d actually win the new car when he entered the drawing at the SCM Homes sales office, but his name was drawn last week and he is now the proud owner of a new Nissan Altima Hybrid. The drawing was the culmination of SCM Homes six month-long “Live Green, Save Green” promotion.
Rudy was thrilled about winning the car, but also about the significant savings in fuel costs since they, like many Newman area residents, commute to the Bay Area for work.
“My wife commutes to San Jose daily and this car will save us thousands of dollars in gas,” said Gonazales.
The campaign kicked off last summer when SCM Homes opened their new models at Park Villas and The Classics at Sherman Ranch in Newman and announced their new “Live Green, Save Green” homebuilding philosophy. SCM Homes is the only certified Energy Star and Green Built builder in the Central Valley, and builds the most energy efficient homes possible in the area.
The Gonazales’ also happen to be proud SCM homeowners, where they save even more money each month because of the level of energy efficiency the home they purchased at Park Villas last summer provides.
“One of the deciding factors for us to purchase a SCM home at Park Villas was the energy efficiency of the homes. I am on disability and stay at home every day. My utility bills for the same size house in Tracy were averaging $300 per month. We have not had a bill over $60 in our new home here in Newman,” Gonazales added.
“We were really thrilled Rudy was our winner. He is one of our biggest fans and he is very excited about winning this new car. It truly could not have happened to a nicer person,” said Dale Lovelace, sales and marketing director for SCM Homes.
Priced from the $180,000s, Park Villas at Sherman Ranch features a sophisticated collection of detached homes with up to four bedrooms and 1,711 square feet. Ideal for those desiring a convenient, carefree lifestyle, the homes are loaded with upgraded features. Park Villas is situated within the Sherman Ranch planned community, adjacent to sprawling new Sherman Park and is designed with beautifully landscaped paseos. The homebuilder also offers The Classics, which is an all single story neighborhood of homes priced from the low $300,000s. Next month the builder will unveil three new decorated models the Heritage Collection. Preview priced from $269,900, the single and two story homes are situated on huge lots.
Newman is located in a commuter-friendly, tranquil location in the Central Valley. Situated just off Interstate 5, Sherman Ranch offers an idyllic country setting amidst orchards and farmland, yet is very close to Tracy which offers numerous large shopping centers as well as the Tracy mall. Homebuyers with children will appreciate the highly regarded local Newman schools. The area is also a convenient commute via the ACE train or numerous commute routes to many of the tri-valley employment centers including Bishop Ranch, Hacienda Business Park, and Lawrence Livermore Lab.
