AV Homes Celebrates Success of CantaMia With Offering of Nine New Models

Land Purchase Complete for Final Phase of 55-Plus Community

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- AV Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVHI) has announced the availability of nine new floor plans at its successful CantaMia at Estrella community in greater Phoenix. Several of the new designs will be part of a newly completed model complex with grand opening slated for Feb. 14, 2014.

CantaMia experienced a dramatic increase in both sales and traffic in 2013 and is currently closing out its first phase of 200 homes. The community's second phase of 200 home sites is over 25 percent pre-sold, and construction of those homes began in December. According to the U.S. Census Bureau and Brookings Institution, Phoenix ranks as the top destination for those 55 and older moving to new areas since 2009, and the success of CantaMia attests to that.

"The Phoenix housing market is picking back up, and the 55-Plus segment is growing even faster," stated AV Homes Arizona Division President, Tim Little. "We are thrilled with the success of CantaMia to date, and our latest designs offer future residents an even wider selection of new home choices."

To celebrate the debut of the new model complex, AV Homes will host a series of private and public events. On Feb. 13, Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord and council members attended a Grand Opening VIP event for City officials, AV Homes business partners, and members of the realty community. For two weekends beginning Feb. 15, CantaMia will hold Mardi Gras celebrations in honor of the model home complex opening. Each weekend day will feature live entertainment, a complimentary jambalaya lunch, door prizes and a chance to enter the grand prize drawing of airfare for two from Phoenix to New Orleans. Additionally, there will be a stunning display of classic cars and tours of all nine new model homes.

CantaMia is part of the master-planned community of Estrella, in the town of Goodyear, Ariz. -- named one of the five "Most Livable Cities in America." A truly unique 55-Plus community, CantaMia is the result of years of studying the active adult and baby boomer lifestyle. Where To Retire magazine named CantaMia one of the 50 Best Communities in the U.S. and The National Association of Home Builders 50+ Housing Council awarded CantaMia: Gold Award - 2012 Best Community and Silver Award - Best Green Community.

The nine new models are part of the Duet, Ensemble and Symphony series and range in size from 1,220 to 2,364 square feet with base prices ranging from the $140's to the $250's. For more details, visit the AV Homes website www.AVHomesInc.com.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
