“We fell in love with the location and layout of our home,” exclaims Cindy Shepard, who with her husband, Myles, recently purchased a beautiful new Renasci home in El Dorado Hills. “It’s in a private gated community right on the border of El Dorado Hills and Folsom. We love our family room being completely open to the kitchen, and that our laundry room is upstairs.”

Elaborating on the neighborhood’s great location, Myles adds, “We are five-minutes from the Palladio and seven minutes from El Dorado Hills Town Center. Plus, I can avoid the morning and afternoon freeway traffic by taking the back roads to work in Roseville.”

When house hunting, home shoppers are wise to begin their search by exploring their options and isolating preferred neighborhoods, which is just what Cindy and Myles did. “We first looked at two prior-owned homes in Folsom. We walked through those houses pretty fast,” points out Cindy. “Our Realtor showed us around the area and then brought us to tour the models at the nearby Renasci Homes development.” Although homes at The Elms and The Oaks were a bit out of the Shepard’s price range, they were happy to find out that Renasci still had two lower priced homes left at The Willows, just up the hill.

“We viewed the homes at The Willows and instantly fell in love,” recalls Cindy. “Since this was our first day actively viewing homes, we decided to look at other houses. We went through just one more listing when we realized that there would be no other house that could come close to comparing to our now home.”

The Shepard family, who moved into their spacious new home just before the holidays, was drawn to Renasci’s generously-appointed home designs and the advantages of owning a newly-built, move-in ready home. “Everything is up-to-date, energy efficient and brand new. We even picked out our own flooring,” comments Myles. “Our kitchen is amazing,” adds Cindy. “From the open concept design, to the beautiful gray and white countertops, slow-close espresso colored cabinets, built-in range and nice-sized pantry, it’s just perfect.”

Buying a home in a desirable location can help preserve home values and ensure faster resale rates, which is one of the reasons why so many families like the Shepards are attracted to the Folsom side of El Dorado Hills. “The neighborhood is very private,” remarks Myles. “Our home backs to a preserve, so we’re told that there will never be a housing development behind our backyard. We’re also close to friends and near highly-ranked schools with great reputations.”

Extending praise to Renasci Homes’ sales team, Cindy concludes, “Renasci Homes’ team was very helpful and friendly throughout our home-buying experience. Janice was especially exceptional to work with! She was very informative and genuinely excited for us to buy our first home.”
