Encore Castle Rock

Encore Castle Rock is a brand-new mixed-use development constructed in the heart of Downtown Castle Rock.

Encore has condos for young professionals working in the Denver Tech Center or large 3-bedroom layouts with room for the whole family.

Terrain Castle Rock

Terrain Castle Rock is being developed by multiple construction companies including KB Home, TRI Pointe Homes, and D.R. Horton. Terrain is located primarily north of Highway 86 approximately five minutes from downtown Castle Rock and only a few minutes from Franktown. The homes are built to blend into the natural open space and trail system of Douglas County. Though it’s a large development, streets and neighborhoods are constructed to separate areas and provide a smaller, intimate neighborhood feel.

Types of Homes Available at Terrain

If you want choice, it’s a good idea to preview Terrain Castle Rock with its variety of homes. The three unique builders give you different size options and style options with the ability to customize and build your perfect home. Homes at Terrain range from two to six bedroom and 1,800 square feet to 6,000 square feet. The choice at Terrain can be overwhelming but a new construction real estate agent can you help pick out the perfect home.

Using a New Construction Real Estate Agent

New construction real estate doesn’t work the same as traditional real estate since you’re buying from a developer or a third party, and not directly from the seller.

Without a proper real estate agent, you could easily lose hundreds to thousands of dollars and just as important – a lot of time and energy. Look for a team with multiple decades of combined experience in new construction and agents that know how to negotiate with home builders, build out fair contracts, and make certain their clients don’t get hosed with delays and excuses. Before you start seriously considering purchasing a new construction home, it’s critical to meet with a new construction real estate agent.

Castle Rock is booming and whether you prefer a two-bedroom condo downtown or a five-bedroom home nestled on open space, the variety of new homes in Castle Rock has you covered. Look over neighborhoods, builders, and homes carefully, and only hire a real estate agent with prior new development real estate skills.
