Why rent when you can own? Discover new move-in ready homes in the Portland/SW Washington area

homebuying process

Rent is on the rise, but mortgage interest rates are falling – what does this mean?* Now is the ideal time to stop renting and start owning! Quit paying your landlord each month and invest in a new home you can call your own! Take advantage of a higher purchasing power available now and discover a variety of quick move-in homes available in both the Oregon and SW Washington market, allowing you to enjoy the many benefits that come with homeownership and a brand-new Lennar home.

With a variety of designs to choose from, including single-family homes, townhomes and Next Gen® homes that provide a flexible private suite, as well as fantastic locations near everything that makes the Pacific Northwest so desirable, there’s something for everyone. Here are just a few reasons why you should buy now and why you should buy new:


Lock in your fixed rate now

Beat any chance of interest rates increasing by locking in your rate, because when rates rise, they affect your monthly payments and overall purchasing power. With today’s rates, your payments could be equal to, if not lower, than your rent!

Start building equity now

  • Real estate may be one of the smartest investments a person can make. You can’t build equity while renting, but you may in your own home.

Fixed P&I payment

  • Your monthly rent almost always increases when your lease is renewed. With a fixed-rate mortgage, the fixed principal and interest payments never go up.

Tax deduction

  • Your rent payment is not tax deductible. The interest portion of your mortgage payment could be deductible. Consult your tax advisor for additional information.**

Move-in ready homes available now

  • Lennar has a variety of move-in ready collections, located in premier communities, that can close in 30 to 90 days for approved buyers.  


Advanced technology & design

  • Retrofitting an older home to include some of today’s technology can be costly and time consuming. Wiring, appliances, and windows are just a few features that have greatly improved. Buy new and take advantage of current technology and design.

Reassurance & everything’s completely new

  • Enjoy the amazing new home feel and greater peace of mind thanks to the select warranties that can come included with a new home.

Everything’s Included®

  • The home’s features and upgrades – come at no extra cost. From kitchen countertops, amenities, energy-efficient appoints and more!
