You bet! And there are a good many of them that now have some fun neighborhood events to look forward to!
The Ford’s Colony ‘Colony Kids’ is back in action! Ford’s Colony is home to many kiddos and they need fun things to do just like their parents. The Homeowner’s Association just announced that there are four planned activities this year for kids under 12 years of age.
- Spring Celebration & Easter Egg Hunt
- July 4th Pool Party/Pizza Party
- Trunk or Treat Halloween Event
- Holiday Celebration & Brunch with Santa.
They are looking for additional volunteers who would like to help out with the program and may also have ideas to for future events.
From the HOA:
If you are interested in participating in any of the above events, or in joining the Colony Kids Activities Team (next meeting is Feb. 9th at 8:45am at the S&T Club), please call or email your contact information (name, address, email address and phone number ) to:
Lastly, keep your eye out for upcoming information via email and Talk of the Colony regarding these events, so we can have a great turnout from the parents and kids of Ford’s Colony!
Thank you Deborah Huckins and committee for organizing these awesome and fun events for the Ford’s Colony kids. Your time and efforts are appreciated.
Looking to get involved in Ford’s Colony? Without a doubt, there is SOME club or some activity for everyone who may want to get involved in the neighborhood. Don’t miss the Club Fair that will be held TODAY January 12,2011 at 7:00 at the Swim and Tennis Club.
From the Ford’s Colony Home Owner’s Association:
Whether your interests are artistic, recreational, musical, educational or purely social, there are residents here doing it. Come out for the fun and light refreshments!
Gift Certificates for Great Meals at Local Restaurants will be Raffled Off!!
What a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and have some fun too. (And maybe win a gift certificate for a restaurant).
So how many homes ARE for sale in Ford’s Colony? We are beginning 2011 with 124 homes ‘active’ on the Williamsburg MLS. 105 of those are single family DETACHED homes. 19 of those are ATTACHED (condos or townhomes) properties. There are currently 7 additional properties detailed as under contract and pended. Those are homes that are set to close. (There are a few more detailed as ‘under contract’ but may have contingencies that are yet to be remedied like a home inspection, buyer financing, third-party bank approval or sale of the buyer’s own home. Those homes are counted in the 124 homes that are active on the market)
The number of homes on the market is actually down significantly from some of the peaks that we saw in inventory in 2009 -2010. The number of re-sale properties actually spiked to the low 200’s (ACTIVE resale on MLS) so a number as low as 124 is really good. Also consider that Ford’s Colony has over 2400 completed home sites which would equate to roughly 5% of the market for sale.
