Posted on 10/7/2020 by Eric Sims

Health and safety is top of mind for everyone these days, and has brought changes to the way we do almost everything. If you’re looking for homes for sale in Manvel, TX, you should know that Pomona by Hillwood has truly gone above and beyond to make the experience convenient, comfortable and safe. We’ve created a guide that explains how to buy a home online in Manvel, Texas.

Discover Pomona, a New Subdivision in Manvel, TX

Before we get into the details of shopping for a home online, we wanted to give you a quick reminder of all the reasons Pomona, a Live SmartSM community, is such an ideal choice for your new home. From location to amenities to the builders you can choose from, everything about Pomona comes together to create one of the most exciting new neighborhoods in Manvel, TX.

Easy Access to Shopping, Schools and Major Employers

Pomona is the best of both worlds: far enough away from the hustle and bustle to feel like a tranquil getaway, yet close enough to all the conveniences of the city to be convenient. Pomona is just 2 miles from Pearland Town Center, 15 miles from Texas Medical Center, and 19 miles from downtown Houston with its amazing array of restaurants and excellent shopping.

Excellent Schools Close to Home

Pomona Elementary, located within the community itself, is the newest Alvin ISD elementary school. Located off Kirby Drive and Pomona Parkway, just across the street from Camp Pomona, it’s within walking distance for your children. Both the junior high school – Rodeo Palms Junior High - and Alvin High School are within 7 miles of Pomona.

Exciting Amenities for Every Family Member

Pomona residents share a unique connection to the land and nature. The wide greenbelts, sloping hills and century-old oak trees along the banks of the bayou winding throughout Pomona provide a beautiful, natural backdrop for what we call Camp Pomona. With its state-of-the-art “exploration zone” playground, resort style pools with cabanas, catering kitchen, outdoor living and fireplace, event lawn, and fitness center, there’s truly something for everyone.

Pomona Guide to Shopping for a Home Online

Not long ago, options for shopping for a home online were somewhat limited. At Pomona by Hillwood, we recognized the need to take virtual home tours to the next level, so anyone who needs to buy a new home can do so in the safest, most convenient way possible.

That’s why we created our virtual model home park – an online recreation of our onsite model home park where you can get to know our builders and explore everything they have to offer. Now finding the perfect new home for your family can be done from the comfort of your couch, and you have several choices for taking your virtual model home tour.

To get started, navigate to “Virtual Model Park” from our home page. Get a sense of each builder's style, see what the finished product looks like – inside and out – and Elevate the Every Day by choosing and personalizing the floor plan that fits your family.

Next, choose the builder you want to learn more about and select “Enter Model Home.” From the next screen, you can choose to view the photo gallery, take a 3D tour of the home (Matterport 3D Tour), and watch the builder video. Builder details and a button to request a virtual showing are easily accessible from the bottom of the screen.

We’ve chosen four of the area’s most respected builders to be part of Pomona. You’ll notice that Coventry Homes has 3 options for you to choose from, and Perry Homes, Highland Homes, and Coventry Homes all have two options. These options all correspond to the different product lines each builder is offering at Pomona. Home prices start in the $260s, and square footages are from 1,400 to 5,500 sq. ft., so with such a wide range of sizes, options, and price points, we’ve made it easy for you to find the right builder and the right home.

Another Way We Make it Easy to Find Your New Home

At Pomona we also offer the “Shop Smart” option to help narrow down the homes that align with what you’re looking for. On our website, choose “Help Me Shop Smart.” This will open up a form where you’ll tell us your home buying criteria. Next, our builders’ online sales consultants will find the floor plans and Live SmartTM homesites that best match your needs, and we’ll send you your personally curated results electronically.

At Pomona, we want to make sure your search for a new home is both convenient and safe. From our “Shop Smart” service to our virtual model home park, we’ve elevated how to buy a home online in Manvel, Tx.

Private Onsite Tours Available

While our virtual model home park is the next best thing, we understand there’s just no substitute for actually seeing a home in person, walking through the rooms, and getting a real appreciation of the care and attention to detail each of our builders brings to every home they create.

Onsite tours are available, and we invite you to visit our builders and our community. We’re taking extra precautions onsite, including frequent cleaning and sanitization, limiting visitors, and requiring masks to be worn by both visitors and staff.

Doing some research online before you visit helps to streamline your home buying journey, in addition to keeping you safe. By the time you meet your builder, you’ll already have a good idea of the floor plan that might work best for you and options for personalization.

Elevate the Everyday!

Giving you options is just one more way we Elevate the Everyday at Pomona. We consistently look for ways to make every aspect of your experience with Pomona, from finding the perfect home to moving in and enjoying everything our community has to offer.
