Fort Worth, Texas – February 10, 2011 – Centex Homes is set to open a brand new 60-unit neighborhood in the master-planned community of Rivers Edge in north Fort Worth. A grand opening celebration will be held Saturday, February 11 at the new sales center.

“At Rivers Edge, residents will enjoy first-class amenities without the first-class price tag,” said Steven Langridge, vice president of sales for the Fort Worth operations of Centex. “Families with young children and young professional couples will love the superior location, price point, low cost of ownership and impressive community amenities at Centex’s Rivers Edge community.”

Rivers Edge community will feature six distinct floor plans, featuring between 1,261-2,609 square feet of living space. Homebuyers can choose a one- or two-story home with 3-4 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms with two-car garages, and large open living spaces.

“The Centex floor plans provide comfortable living space to enjoy and entertain. We expect strong interest from homebuyers who are looking for smartly-designed, reliability-built and affordable homes with outstanding schools and community amenities,” added Langridge.

One designer-decorated model will be showcased at the community. The 1,859-square-foot floor plan features three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a walk-in pantry and large walk-in closets. The kitchen features a serving bar, an optional island, wall-to-wall cabinetry, and a large walk-in pantry. The second and third bedrooms share a full bath, and are located near the laundry room.

Home prices range from $99,990-$139,990.

Langridge added that Rivers Edge is the perfect place for first-time homebuyers to make their dream of homeownership a reality. He specifically noted that Rivers Edge is located in a USDA Financing zone, which allows some homebuyers to select a “$0 down” mortgage program.

Rivers Edge is located in the Northwest ISD, which is rated “Recognized” by Texas Education Agency’s (TEA) 2010 ratings. School-aged children living in Rivers Edge would attend: WR Hatfield Elementary (Exemplary), Gene Pike Middle School (Recognized), and North West High School (Recognized).
