The Southern California homebuilding industry is giving new home shoppers and buyers a chance to vote for their favorite community from among 21 nominees, including four from Pardee Homes; two of which are located in the Inland Empire. Part of the SoCal Awards, the industry's celebration of marketing excellence, Consumers Choice offers the public the opportunity to cast a vote at one of the participating communities. Participants will be eligible to win the grand prize, a Wii gaming package featuring "The Beatles: Rock Band" and gift cards from Target and Lowes.
"Consumers Choice gives us a new, direct way to hear from our home shoppers, home buyers and Realtors and we are delighted," said Joyce Mason, vice president of marketing for Pardee Homes. "Their voices will further enhance our Customer Satisfaction initiatives--we hope for a great voter turnout to our nominated neighborhoods!"
Consumers Choice Awards for Community of the Year will honor the top vote getters in each of four regions - San Diego, LA/Ventura, Orange County and the Inland Empire. Prospective voters can visit these areas and cast their vote in special ballot boxes at the respective model home centers. Voting is underway and runs through August 31, with winners to be announced when all votes have been tabulated.
Pardee Homes has two nominated neighborhoods in the Consumers Choice program in the San Diego Area: Terramar in Torrey Highlands and Highlands Village in master-planned Carmel Country Highlands. Both are located in north San Diego County off SR 56. Also nominated are two Pardee neighborhoods in the Inland Empire: LivingSmart Homes at Canyon Hills in Lake Elsinore and LivingSmart Homes at Tournament Hills in Beaumont.
In Torrey Highlands, Terramar is the Consumers Choice nominee. Priced from the mid $700,000s, the two story homes of this neighborhood provide approximately 2,585 to 3,212 square feet and up to six bedrooms and three and one-half baths and a variety of room options including dens, guest suites, lofts and bonus rooms. As part of the Torrey Highlands community, residents enjoy highly-rated schools, convenient shopping and services, and easy access to all of San Diego.
In Carmel Country Highlands, the Consumers Choice nominee is Pardee Homes' Highlands Village. Priced from the low $500,000s, Highlands Village is a resort-style townhome neighborhood with five floor plans. Home are all two-stories with two to four bedrooms, two and one-half baths, attached garages and square footage ranging from approximately 1,274 to 2,068 square feet. These contemporary townhomes feature fully-equipped kitchens with slab granite countertops, luxurious master baths and large walk-in closets. Homeowners enjoy exclusive use of a private clubhouse with swimming pool, spa, fitness facility, media room business center and kid's play area as well as two guest units available for rent to guests of homeowners.
Surrounded by over 800 acres of preserved open space, Highlands Village, like Terramar, features Pardee Homes' exclusive LivingSmart program of earth-friendly features and options that encourage conservation or use of recycled or sustainable resources. Highlands Village is ideally located just minutes from I-5, UCSD, neighborhood parks, hiking trails and beaches.

Energy efficiency in a LivingSmart home exceeds California's Title 24 criteria, already the toughest in the nation.
LivingSmart Homes at Canyon Hills offers homeowners trails, parks, schools, convenient neighborhood shopping and two residents-only recreation centers with beautiful swimming pools. The community offers easy access to all the great recreational activities that make Lake Elsinore popular with boat enthusiasts, skydivers, wakeboarders and cyclists.
