Progress Photo of the Legacy Collection Models

Warmington Homes broke ground on the Legacy Collection model homes back in August and from the looks of the photo below, the models are well are their way to completion.  Warmington has been giving hard-hat tours of the models during construction, but sales won’t begin in earnest until the models are ready.

With apologies for giving ourselves a pat on the back, we’ve been all over this story from the beginning!  On March 20, 2012, we reported the rumor that DMB Ladera had sold 28 custom lots to a home builder and correctly identified the lots.  That blog was picked up by a number of realtors via Facebook and Twitter.  We confirmed the sale and reported that the buyer was Warmington in June.  We identified the location of the models and the first phase in July.
