Is there anyone out there who didn’t have a busted bracket going into tonight’s NCAA Championship? Is there anyone that had Villanova winning the final game in such convincing fashion? What a crazy Tournament! It’s been a blast watching underdogs take out top seeds and all the teams come together with a common goal. So inspiring! It reminds of what’s really important: Hard work, perseverance, and, driving it all, family. Family is what The Farm is all about, whether we’re talking about those families that are just moving to the area to buy a home in Ventura, those who are moving from another home in the city, or the Williams Homes family that is so invested in the satisfaction and happiness of our buyers and owners. We love Ventura and we know that if you don’t already, you will as soon as you have a chance to explore.
In the meantime, we’ve been counting down the 64 top reasons to buy a home in Ventura (to coincide with the field of 64 for the Tournament), and, now that Villanova reigns as National Champion, you can read our final 16—plus the first, second, and third batches—to get inspired for a visit.
