HOUSTON, July 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Parc at Midtown by Surge Homes® was recognized as the third fastest-selling residential subdivision in Houston for the first quarter of 2016 by Meyers Research LLC, as reported in the Houston Business Journal. Developments ranked by the firm comprised master-planned and smaller communities. Inclusion in the top three is significant because Houston is highly competitive and ranked the second largest market in new home starts and sales in the U.S. Furthermore, Surge Homes is the only private company in the top three, and several of the top 10 companies are listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
"It is certainly an honor to be part of this top-10 list with other well-respected, nationwide homebuilders," said Ben Lemieux, co-owner of Surge Homes. "We are thrilled that our vision of a walkable community for Parc at Midtown has received such favorable attention from new home buyers, the press and our peers."
In just 120 days, Surge Homes' sales topped $14 million, representing 50 homes sold in two of its communities. Forty-three homes and $10 million of those sales belong to Parc at Midtown, which is located four blocks west of downtown in Midtown and is considered the hottest Inner Loop neighborhood for millennials. The remaining seven homes and $4 million in sales go to Upper Richton, located in Houston's posh Upper Kirby neighborhood.
The success of Surge Homes began with the vision of its founders 16 years ago, who believed that Houston was the place to be for new residential construction. Lemieux and his family, along with Conrad, purchased land tracks in Houston's Inner Loop years before it was obvious that demand for homes in the city would be so high. By leveraging innovative home design and a forward-thinking crowdsourcing model, Surge Homes has seen the sale of its condominiums, townhomes, Sky Townhomes™ and single-family homes skyrocket in 2016.
"While we are the only home developer and builder on the top-10 list developing in Houston's Inner Loop, our success is based on more than just great locations. We created new residential products at lower price points offered by no one else and with finishes imported from Europe exclusively for us," said Louis Conrad, co-owner of Surge Homes.
The company's website offers a peek into what's to come from Surge Homes. With 10 Inner Loop communities on the horizon, the founders say this is just the beginning. Interested parties can register with Surge Homes to stay up-to-date with new developments, innovations and news.
