Since entering the Charleston market 11 years ago, Dan Ryan Builders has expanded and currently builds in eight communities across the area from James Island to Summerville and has won the “Builder of Integrity” award consecutively every year since 2008, as well as the prestigious Hearthstone Builder Humanitarian Award in 2015.
To Dan Ryan Builders, it’s not about winning awards, or even about creating neighborhoods, but about helping people realize their dream house.
“We don’t just build houses, we allow people to personalize their homes, by selecting their preferences at our Design Center to make it their own,” says Lauren McElroy, Sales and Marketing Coordinator for the Charleston Division of Dan Ryan Builders.
Three new neighborhoods recently joined the growing list of Dan Ryan Builders communities, including The Bluffs at Ashley River, located in Summerville just off Dorchester road. The master planned community features a pool and a playground, and is convenient to both the Air Force Base and I-26. Home plans start at a base price in the mid $200s and range from 1,777-2,357 sq. ft. with 3-4 bedrooms. Interested buyers can visit the model home, now open seven days a week at 102 Ashley Bluffs Road in Summerville.
Further east, Palmetto Pointe at Spring Grove is the newest neighborhood in Moncks Corner off of Hwy. 52 and Cypress Gardens Road. A pavilion, a pool, a playground, and trails for walking and jogging are the highlights of this master planned community, where the base home price ranges from the $230s to the$280s for 3-4 bedroom homes of 2,462-3,655 sq. ft. A model home is currently open to tour at 401 Stonefield Circle in Moncks Corner.
On the other side of Charleston altogether, Saltgrass Pointe off Woodland Shores Rd. is Dan Ryan Builders’ first neighborhood in James Island. Homes here will have a base price from the upper $300s-$400s for homes between 1,776-3,542 sq. ft. with 3-5 bedrooms. James Island has been a well-kept secret for many years, but now the area is hot, and homes here are in a great location with easy access to downtown Charleston, Folly Beach, James Island County Park, and great schools.
“It’s one of the most desired spots in Charleston, just because it’s so close to everything. The location is great and it’s really exciting to have our little piece of James Island to offer people,” says McElroy.
Homebuyers shouldn’t overlook Dan Ryan Builders other, more established communities either. Each neighborhood has its own amenities, its own personality, and its own style. They develop over time, too; for instance, Summers Corner in Summerville off of Hwy.61 isn’t anew community, but it now features new available home plans at a lower price point, with a choice of six floor plans available with base prices in the $300s-$400s. Home buyers who felt it wasn’t a good match in the past might want to take a second look.
Ultimately, it’s about making sure every home buyer ends up with the home that suits their lifestyle and their family.
The first step in making home dreams a reality is getting pre-approved for a loan. Then buyers decide on which community they want to live in, and whether they want new construction or a “quick move in” home that’s already built and ready to buy. Working closely with a Dan Ryan Builders sales consultant, buyers who opt for new construction often start by choosing their floor plan and homesite. Buyers typically have five or six floor plans
to choose from, all with the features they desire most, like open floor plans, owner’s suite on the ground floor, screened-in porches, one- to three-car garages and much more. With the floor plan as a starting point, buyers can choose from numerous options to make it their own.
Next comes the part that many people like most: choosing the finishes. This is where true individuality shines through, as buyers select the paint colors, cabinetry, hardware, counter tops, and other finishes they love most. From standard selections to deluxe materials, there’s a wide range to help buyers express their personality in their home.
During construction, buyers are kept up to date with their homes’ progress, and before you know it, the long-awaited day has arrived: move-in day.
“Building a home versus just buying a house is an exciting journey that we love to share with first-time homebuyers as well as those who have gone through the journey before,” says McElroy.
