Attention military personnel! Your time is almost up to take advantage of the extended deadline for the New Home Tax Credit on Richmond new homes. If you were out of the country and missed last year’s deadline for the home buyer credit, you were given an additional year to take advantage of this great opportunity. Qualified service members who served on official duty outside the United States for 90 days or more at any time between Jan. 1, 2009 and April 30 2010 have an additional year to buy a home and claim the credit. That means you have until April 30, 2011 to sign a sales contract, and until June 30, 2011, to close on a home. Both the $8,000 first-time and $6,500 repeat home buyer tax credits are included.

The misery of spring maintenance will be upon us shortly. Long days in the yards of our Richmond new homes, consumed with planting beds, mulching, weeding, irrigating, cutting, raking, pruning, fertilizing, visiting the nursery and aching body are only a few days away.

You’re ready to explore the Richmond new homes built by Boone Homes, but you still have to sell your current abode. If you are not in the business of selling homes on a daily basis you may wonder what it takes to complete the process. In today’s economy it may seem that homes only change hands when the seller pays the buyer to take the home. However, this perception is false. Homes continue to sell. Some homes are even getting multiple offers.

Things just aren’t built the way they used to be…

Things just aren’t built the way they used to be. Have you had that thought recently as the latest gadget that you bought fell into pieces in your hands? How many toys did your children get for Christmas that are already broken? It seems when I was a child that they built toys to be indestructible, but toys just like cars and homes seem to be built with less pride and care in their craftsmanship these days. It’s sad, but it seems that most things are only built to last long enough to outlast the warranty – if it even has one.

Never Shovel Snow in Roanoke Again !

BoonehomesSnow1.jpg
After last winter’s record breaking snowfall across the state and the rare White Christmas we had this year, you must be thinking of all the snow ahead of us this winter. If you’re looking for Roanoke real estate, but don’t want the hassle of shoveling snow, then look no further than the Coach Homes of Southwood; Boone Homes’ No Maintenance Community in Roanoke. During our last snowfall in December, I drove through the Southwood community (of course after several hours of shoveling my own driveway and clearing snow off my car), and what did I see? All of the driveways were clear of snow and the sunshine was melting what little ice was left. These homeowners have realized their dream of never shoveling snow in Roanoke again.

Roanoke Real Estate with ENERGY STAR Packages

Energy-Star-Color-Chart1.jpg
Boone Homes is proud to be an ENERGY STAR® New Home Construction Partner, offering Energy Efficient packages in both the Richmond and Roanoke real estate markets. Many are familiar with the blue ENERGY STAR® on household appliances like a refrigerator or dishwasher. People know that if they see the blue star the appliance will use less energy and therefore cost less to run than traditional appliances. But what does it all mean when it comes to new home construction? In a nutshell it means the same thing; ENERGY STAR® qualified homes will use less energy than a traditionally built house and therefore will result in lower energy bills. But that’s not all; an ENERGY STAR® house will be more comfortable and healthier for your family by controlling the air and moisture within your home.

What would you do with $1200?

1193476_dark_question_3.jpg
Does your home pay you back $1,200 a year? Why not? A new Boone Home with Energy Star features would. Boone Homes, a Richmond home builder, has incorporated the latest Energy Star construction technology into the homes we are building. The new construction technology is saving about $1,200 a year on energy bills. How do we know? Easy. Boone Homes took two heating bills from December 2010 for homes built exactly alike in all ways except one had Energy Star features, the other did not. The home with Energy Star features outperformed the non-Energy Star home by roughly $100! This study was only comparing new homes, not new to used. What would the difference have been if the home had been a used home? I can safely assume the difference would have been more significant.

Richmond New Homes Offer the Best Value for Your Dollar

kinloch_harcourt_lg-300x188.jpg (4)
I don’t know about you, but I have been budgeting my money lately, and carefully scrutinizing every purchase that I make. I think we all have been choosing items more carefully, and making sure we get the best value for our dollar; but, sometimes it’s hard to know what the best value is. If something is cheaper, maybe the quality isn’t as good, or maybe there are hidden costs. Have you ever seen a commercial advertising a new car at some ridiculously low price, and think: “What’s the catch?” There’s always a catch, right? If you investigate, you find out that you really can’t purchase a car for that price — unless of course you don’t plan on needing an engine or tires. Sometimes it can be the same way in the housing market: The lowest price for Richmond new homes isn’t always the best value.
