Sage Ranch is a much needed USD $480 Million, 995 house sustainable sub-division. Non-dilutionary bank construction financing will be provided at the project level. Further the USDA and other federal agencies can provide 30 to 38 year sub (2%) two percent home purchase mortgages requiring only a 3% down payment, making the mortgage payments to assist professional families, seniors and single occupants an affordable home ownership package that is less expensive than renting.
Greenbriar owns the 995 unit project without any debt, being one of the only projects of this size in the USA, to own 995 lots debt-free. Greenbriar has been invested in this project since 2011. In attendance on July 12 to support the construction for this project, will be our architects, engineers and senior military leadership to back this housing for the massive government aviation projects and its professional families, both uniformed and civilians located nearby.
Greenbriar congratulates the City and the community for enabling Sage Ranch to have the lowest carbon footprint of any housing project of this size in the USA. Immediately adjacent Sage Ranch are a High School, Middle School and Elementary School, eliminating automobile travel for education and sports.
