New Phase in Southeast Michigan Community Gives Buyers Housing Options

Allen Edwin Homes has broken ground on a new phase of homes in Howell with the hopes to provide new price points for buyers.


HOWELL, Mich, July 16, 2019- Allen Edwin Homes, has broken ground on a new phase in Marion Creek in Howell. Marion Creek is located in the Howell School District on Weatherstone Lane, off of Peavy Road south of I-96. The neighborhood offers homebuyers 27 different floorplans ranging from ranches to two story homes with pricing starting from $225,495.


Allen Edwin Homes’ new phase was developed and opened after phase 1 sold all 33 home sites in less than 18 months.  Currently in Howell, there is less than 1.2 months’ worth of supply available from $220,000 to $240,000.  This price point is severely underserved in the market.  Given the low supply of homes plus the proximity to downtown Howell, Marion Creek is projected to meet a buyer’s market in a growing area of Livingston County. This new phase includes 27 home sites with additional phases to be developed in the coming years. 


“We feel the new phase of Marion Creek is coming at a perfect time to help a highly sought after area that is supply constrained for first time and move up buyers in the Livingston County area,” said Mike McGivney, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Allen Edwin. “Buyers are getting frustrated with bidding wars on older homes that are in short supply and paying above market.  Our Marion Creek community offers an affordable solution that brings an energy efficient, brand new home with today’s technology and style you can’t find in older homes.”  


The new phase of Marion Creek will bring an additional 27 home sites to the community.   It is an extension of the initial Marion Creek community that included 33 home sites.   Overall, the community will feature over 110 new homes. Pre-sales began in the new phase at the Grand Opening event on June 29th with 10 homes sold.
