Real Estate Mathamatics Gone Wild

1150735_house_for_sale_4.jpg (1)
Today’s real estate mathematicians have attempted to reduce the purchase of a home to a mathematical equation. The basic concept behind the equation is the assumption that all homes have walls, a roof, windows and doors. Because all homes have these features, they should be comparable and measured similarly. This method of measurement is called “price per square foot.” While the scheme is phenomenal, the math is a little fuzzy. I fear a good part of the equation has been overlooked. In the light of de-fuzzing mathematics, Boone Homes, a Richmond home builder, has examined the equation and found a few items to help de-fuzz this real estate math.

38.1% Virtue of a New Boone Home

Does your home feel like you are living outdoors under a blue tarp? The heater is on, the sweater is on, the house shoes are on and you’re freezing! You would like to blow your nose if Jack Frost hadn’t ripped it off during the night. Sipping coffee and reading the newspaper would be a simpler pleasure if you didn’t have to chip a frozen layer of ice off the mug and your fingers quit shaking in the cold. Discontent might surface but the frost line has slowed your reactions and you feel you are living in a modern day ice age. Where does the solution lie? (Did I mention that confusion is a side effect of hypothermia?)

Sometimes it is difficult to say no to someone when they invite you to an event, or ask a favor. Even if you really don’t want to, you feel an obligation to say yes.

Now that you’ve decided on enjoying a maintenance-free life, all you have left to do is decide which Boone Homes’ Richmond new home community is right for you.

The cold weather has left a mark all over the country this year. Trapped, stranded and frozen travelers have experienced this icy phenomena first hand, but travelers weren’t the only ones stranded. A day after the latest snow storm froze and burst the plumbing pipes in the Tarrington neighborhood club house, the Home Owners Association was faced with a terrible dilemma: Find a new location for the neighborhood holiday party or cancel the event. Rhonda, the chair for the Tarrington Home Owners Association Events called Richmond new homes builder Boone Homes with an urgent request. The request was, “Can we use one of your Boone Homes?”

Come Home to a Boone Home in 2011 !

NewYears.jpg
Have you started writing your New Year’s Resolutions yet? Where will you be in 2011 ? What goals have you set ? Maybe they are the usual, lose some weight, quit smoking, eat healthier — we all have our own personal goals we want to meet in the coming year. Maybe the changes need to start at home. Is your current home meeting all the needs of you and your family ? Many of us are displeased with our homes and our living space, and it clutters up many areas of your lives. A new home can give you more space you need for that exercise room, or a new home office can give you time to do those projects at home, and keep you from staying at the office so late. A new home offers so many ways to improve your life, and your family’s. It could be just the change you need for the New Year !

Would you do it again?

706192_in_the_door.jpg
“Would you do it again?” Simply a question. A questions which is more a synopsis of whether the purchase or event was really worth the effort and cost. Take sky diving for example. If I were to actually jump out of a perfectly good airplane, you might see me after the event and ask me a few questions as to why I looked so queasy and pale. Almost without missing a beat you would pop the real questions psychologist refer to as the “meta-question.” The Meta-question would answer everything beyond the superfluous formalities of general small talk.

Don’t Buy Gifts, Buy Experiences

1121740_christmas_gifts_2.jpg
The season for giving is here and I thought you might want to reconsider your list. Recently we experienced blessed fellowship in the yard with nature and specifically with leaves. The type of experience that creates strained backs, wobbly ladders, high gutters and IcyHot patches. Reality tells me this experience couldn’t possibly be an enduring family memory of significant value. This experience is more a fall ritual that has met its expiration date. Not the type of experience that is easily replaced with that of a snow shovel. Nor the type of experience that leads to family unity. There is more to life than these.

Santa Claus is buying a new home in Richmond VA. Of all the wonderful choices available, he looked at many luxury homes in Richmond before choosing the Boone Homes neighborhood of Coach Homes of Kinloch. I can just picture Santa sitting in his beautiful new study, feet propped up on the desk eating cookies and looking over his list – checking it twice. With the spaciousness of a Boone Home, there is plenty of room for the elves, and Mrs. Clause is divinely happy in her new state of the art kitchen. The no maintenance community means that Santa won’t even have to shovel the driveway to get the sled out for Christmas Eve. Now that thought really makes Santa smile, living at the North Pole has made Santa really appreciate No Maintenance Living. The elves appreciate it too — you don’t think Santa shoveled the drive alone do you?

Rainy Play Date Solution

Rain does not make a very good day for a play date. Slides are wet, swings are wet, not to mention all that mud. Hiding in a pavilion waiting for the rain to pass is no fun at all. What if there was another solution?

Some things are Timeless … Boone Homes

The-Barcroft-300x183.jpg (1)
I was so excited when I went in a store at the mall with my teen-age daughter a few days ago, and saw the clothing from the 80’s was back in style. Isn’t it amazing how styles change, and people scramble to make sure they are keeping up. Imagine the whole “Miami Vice” look coming back — brings a little tear to your eye doesn’t it? While leg warmers, parachute pants, and other great things may be back in style for a little while, some things like a little black dress or a strand of pearls are timeless and never go out of style. It is the same with new luxury homes in Richmond by Boone Homes, our homes are built to be timeless. Our styles and designs are created to look as good in 10, 20 or even 30 years as they do now. That is an important thing to consider when making an investment in a home. Whether you plan to stay in your new home forever, or re-sell in ten years, it is important that it stay in “style”.

Designed with Tradition in Mind…Your Tradition

One of the most beautiful times of the year is fall. While the heat of the summer melds into the history books with the pint sized Jedi and pixies of Halloween, the crisp clean air of fall evokes traditions. Traditions that have been in incubation all year hatch in the kitchen surrounded by miniature sugar elves covered in powder sugar and dotted with multi-colored sprinkles. What a great time for nut covered candied apples, laced top apple pie and sugar cookies angels adorned with frosting. The kitchen certainly does enhance the memories of a well-executed tradition.

Your New Home: Merely Shelter? Or Magical Faire?

Everyone needs a safe resting place to hide from snow, rain and heat. The need for shelter is one of the most basic needs of humanity. But what about a place where family can trade care, stress, appointments, and business for a conversation immersed in comfort and privacy? Does a place like that exist? Magic does happen…I’d like to say it does for those who purchase Richmond new homes from Boone Homes.
