Built by Fuqua Homes Inc., Corona, the two- three- and four-bedroom houses range in size from 960 to 1,507 square feet and are priced from $58,990 to $67,990, according to Peter Richardson, a partner in the development firm, Riverside County Single-Family Joint Venture.
The project is the first in the Coachella Valley for GMAC Mortgage Corp. The firm so far has provided financing for 19 of the houses being built beginning next month on scattered lots north of Ramon Road. Century 21 Lyle & Associates, Palm Springs, is the sales agent.
