Here is the sales ‘pitch’ for Foster City…
Kay Homes in Foster City were a division of Kaufman Broad Homes. This is the sales binder you would pickup on visiting the sales center in Foster City. The model homes were over on what today we know as Leo Drive. You will note on Leo Drive the street has an odd shape. Saturn Court / Leo Drive was originally a cul-de-sac where you would turn off of Hillsdale Blvd to see model homes. After the sales offices were moved the street was closed off from Hillsdale.
In November of 1971 prices ranged from $39,990 to $45,990 plus options.
This is some of the inspection / move in paperwork that showed a new home owner what to look for in their home to make sure the work was complete. I have removed the Ball’s personal information from the scans & not included some of the personal documentation such as carpet ‘upgrade’ for $223 from Peninsula Floors.
This treasure comes from the Ball Family (Allene and Tom Ball) who have preserved their original marketing & move in material for over 50 years. Thank you to Allene and Tom Ball for preserving these documents and for giving the Foster City Historical Society the opportunity to scan them for preservation.
