Some people were so anxious to make sure they were first in line to choose the next lots available at the Maison SACA Homes residential development in Embrun that they camped out in front of the company’s model home display. The next phase of the project will see 10 lots become available Friday on a first-come-first-choice basis though Maison SACA Homes spokesman Jocelyn Cayer confirmed that everyone who contacts the company will have their name put on a notification list for when the next group of lots becomes available in February and March next year.

Camp out time at Maison SACA Homes residential project

Some people were so anxious to get the spot they wanted for their new home at a residential project in Embrun that they spent the week camping out at the developer’s on-site office.

“They started camping there on Monday,” said Jocelyn Cayer, co-owner of Maisons SACA Homes. “They just wanted to be in line to be first to select their homes.”

Cayer estimated about a dozen would-be homeowners spent the past few days camped out Maison SACA Homes’ Bruge Street office. Most of them are from Ottawa, Oshawa, or Toronto.

He admitted he’s never seen anything like this happen in the 15 years that he and his partner have been doing residential development projects. The company’s focus is on projects in Embrun, Casselman, Crysler, and Limoges.

Maison SACA Homes’  current Embrun project, Place St-Thomas at St-Thomas Road, is a work-in-progress with more than 400 homes planned when completed.

The next phase of the project begins Friday, September 18, with 10 lots becoming available on a first-come-first-choice basis for prospective buyers. Once those 10 lots are claimed, their new owners then tell Maison SACA Homes which one of 16 residence models they want built on the lot.

Cayer noted that even if there are more than 10 people present when the 10 lots become available Friday, those who are not among the fortunate group of 10 will not leave disappointed.

“Everyone who shows up, we will take their names,” Cayer said, adding that Maison SACA Homes will contact them in advance when the next group of lots becomes available in February and March 2021.
