CC Homes Donates $1 Million to Support Research at Baptist Health South Florida

CORAL GABLES, FL – July 27, 2021 – Acknowledging the importance of philanthropic support for investigator-initiated research in healthcare, CC Homes, one of South Florida’s largest home builders led by Jim Carr and Armando Codina, has contributed $1 million to Baptist Health Foundation.  This gift will be divided among the following Baptist Health Centers of Excellence: Miami Cancer Institute, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, Miami Neuroscience Institute and Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute. The gift will also serve as a challenge grant to inspire other funders to invest in transforming the future of healthcare in South Florida.

With more than 350 open clinical trials and studies, Baptist Health is quickly becoming a leader in research in South Florida and beyond.  Many of the trials are conducted at Miami Cancer Institute, and this donation will support cutting-edge breakthroughs in immunotherapy and stem cell therapy.  Philanthropy is also paving the way for research at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, supporting the Vision for Discovery and Innovation campaign, which represents the Institute’s focus on research trials to advance new treatments, devices and methods to improve patient outcomes.  At Miami Neuroscience Institute, donor support is being used to fund endowments to help recruit top talent and foster a transformation research structure that will help advance innovative studies and compassionate care for patients.  Philanthropy has been key in supporting the Outcomes-Based Electronic Research Database (OBERD) program at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, which utilizes patient intelligence software that transforms patient feedback and objective clinical data into insights to help improve patient outcomes.

Current Baptist Health Board Chair Jim Carr explained the reason for the company’s generous donation. “I’ve been involved with Baptist Health for over 30 years and have had the great pleasure of watching it grow into a nationally recognized healthcare system.  With its Centers of Excellence, it is addressing and influencing how we treat serious diseases.  We have also had the great fortune to meet many of Baptist Health’s physicians and researchers, and understand that philanthropy is the fuel that ignites these ideas and novel research programs.  This is why we are so proud to make this gift and invite others to join us and help match our investment.”

“We are tremendously grateful for this generous gift and commitment to our mission,” said Baptist Health CEO Brian E. Keeley.  “As a non-profit organization, we rely on philanthropy to power our progress, and support of this magnitude is instrumental in achieving our long-term research goals.  As a challenge grant, these funds will go even further in helping our physicians and researchers deepen their understanding of disease, develop treatments, improve outcomes and save lives.”

How the Competitive Housing Market Has Affected New Construction Homes and Buyers

You may be wondering what to expect when buying a new home in 2021, or perhaps what the process of buying a new home is in general. With steadily low interest rates available, you are motivated to buy, but you have questions – How soon can I move in? How long will it be before I can close on my home? Will I have to bid out other prospective buyers for the home? Why are prices higher now than they were last week?

We at CC Homes would like to provide some honest and helpful information on how today’s housing market conditions are impacting our operations as a homebuilder, our suppliers, and most importantly our customers like you.

When choosing to build a home rather than buy a resale, it is important to consider that the construction of a home takes time and you will need to plan accordingly with a place to live until it is ready for closing. While as a homebuilder we do sell select move-in ready homes, most of our homes are to-be-built. Once you complete the home purchase contract on a to-be-built home, the process of building your home has begun!

There are several milestones during this process, you will first complete personalized permit selections so that your new home can be submitted to the city or municipality for permitting. While that’s happening, you’ll also meet with one of our designers to choose all of the many features that equip your brand-new, stylish pad.

Once the permit for your new home is finalized your home can be put on the schedule of homes to be started. In some circumstances, permitting may take longer than what is typical, depending on how quickly the jurisdiction where the home is being built processes the paperwork.

We pride ourselves on transparency, and with that said, we can only start construction on so many homes in a single day. Please also note that, naturally, a home that is larger will take longer to build.

Land development is another factor that can impact the timeliness of your home start on the schedule. Turnaround at this stage varies at each of our communities and for each homesite. We strive to give you as much information as we can at the time of your purchase.

Please consider and remember that our goal will always be to finish your home as timely as possible while at the same time build it well and with careful attention to the details. Prior to the pandemic, we would often close homes ahead of schedule, but at this time it’s become more difficult to do so. We hope you can understand this and find patience.

Given the historically high demand we’re experiencing as a homebuilder, we’re working hard to rev up production on a record number of new homes. This, coupled with the rising costs and scarcity of materials, are the reasons prices of our homes are what they are.

It is one of the most exhilarating times to search for a new home in recent years, and by choosing to build a new construction home, we hope you will find that some of the current home buying stresses are alleviated. You may know first-hand how people buying a home these days are finding themselves in bidding wars, forced to present an offer above list price, fingers-crossed that it will be the best offer while simultaneously hoping they will be paying a fair price if that offer is miraculously the one accepted.

We at CC Homes, and our New Home Consultants, are very straightforward with the pricing of our homes. Walk into our Florida Sales Galleries and you will find that home prices are set, although they are subject to change daily and without notice. We encourage checking our website frequently for changes, should you have a home in mind but have not moved forward yet.

MIAMI (Nov. 2, 2020) –  And they’re off… CC Homes, one of Florida’s leading homebuilders, has launched sales for Circle S Estates, the former stable of the legendary 1985 Kentucky Derby Winner, Spend A Buck, located in the exclusive mansion and bridle path-lined neighborhood of Southwest Ranches, just minutes from Weston.

The former 48-acre equestrian estate was a prominent training and breeding farm for more than 30 years, under the ownership of Betty and Ralph Sessa that once stabled, Kentucky Derby winner, Spend A Buck. CC Homes has committed to upholding the property’s proud legacy and maintaining its Old Florida landscaping charm of towering palms and sprawling oaks throughout the property as well as the original fencing.

“These homes put families in the winner’s circle,” said Andres Miyares, Chief Operating Officer at CC Homes. “They offer a prestigious lifestyle in a story book neighborhood rich with racing history and canopied streets where private mansions and horses co-exist in an idyllic setting just outside of the vibrant metropolitan areas of Miami and Fort Lauderdale.”

Each one or two-story Circle S Estate will boast contemporary exterior elevations featuring from five-bedrooms and four and a half-baths, additional guest accommodations and a three-car garage. For a total of up to 7,207 square feet of space, Circle S Estates offer highly-appointed interior finishes with many choices for customization through CC Homes Design Studio. In a nod to its storied past, each estate comes with the option for a white ranch inspired fence with elegant stone balusters for added privacy and charm as well as room for a pool and outdoor kitchen.

Additionally, through CC Homes’ partnership with Baptist Health South Florida, each homebuyer at Circle S Estates will receive a complimentary Baptist Health Digital Health Kit powered by TytoCare™ and unlimited virtual urgent care visits for one year.

While nestled in the charming, unspoiled Southwest Ranches neighborhood, home owners will enjoy easy access to major transportation corridors such as Interstate 75, Florida Turnpike and Interstate 95, and just a short drive from both Miami and Fort Lauderdale and nearby airports and seaports.
