Special Limited Time Incentives Include Free Appliances at 2 Olson Homes Communities

Olson Homes Offers Low Prices and Great Incentives Now Through April 6th That Put Style and Value First -- Olson Homes Competes Against Cookie Cutter Home Recipe

Ventura, CA. (PRWEB) March 27, 2008

When it comes to style, this is Olson Homes' philosophy: "cookie cutters are for kitchens." Homebuyers in Ventura County or the Central Coast will find architecture uniquely designed to fit within the surrounding neighborhood and the builder's signature attention to detail, careful planning and green building that ensure a healthier, happier way of life for homeowners at each Olson community, no matter where it is located. And if homebuyers purchase by April 6, the builder proves that style and value always come first by offering a free washer, dryer and refrigerator at two new-home communities, Citrus Walk in Ventura and Juliette Walk in Buellton. According to Michelle Johnson, VP of Sales "Olson Homes will also cover closing costs for this event. Plus home buyers qualify for other limited-time only incentives in addition to Olson's low prices, so buyers have two more reasons to say "goodbye" to cookie cutter homes for good!"
