Picture2-300x181.jpg (1)
Great News! Richmond new homes are under construction. Boone Homes has a new plan under construction in Tarrington on the James on a home site backing up to a preserve. This all brick Courtyard Villa Home, the Fairbridge, features a first floor master suite with a decadent master bath, soaking tub, separate shower and his & hers closets. This architectural master piece is designed for one level living and conveniently locates all the conveniences on the first floor. Mouldings masterfully whisper luxury to the dinner guests in the dining room as they eye follows the lines of the exclusive coffered ceiling. Congregate in the gourmet kitchen for a show in culinary arts from your family chef, or relax late into the evening while staring into the dancing flames of the gas log fireplace in your family room.

3 Showcase Homes: The Best Things Happen In Groups

WC-20-Bancroft-kitchen5-300x200.jpg (6)
Some of the best things in life happen in groups. Think about it. Three chocolate bars shared with another friend are better than trying to share two fun-size bars. I haven’t read the fine print, but there must be a no share policy written on the bag of each fun size candy bar, simple candy bar ethics. Another example, a gift certificate for a double-mini-cake-doughnut with pink frosting and white wedding bead sprinkles alongside a frappe places higher on the good gift list than just a coffee. Boone Homes has applied this very reasoning to building Richmond new homes. Why build one, when you can build three and make them really sweet. Let me explain.

Roanoke’s Local Flavor

When you move to a new area, it can take months, even years really to feel “settled”, and to know where the best shopping is, where the best parks are, who the best doctors are, and where the best places to eat are located. It can be frustrating starting all over again. I have lived in Roanoke for three years now, and have been excited to find out that Roanoke has such wonderful local flavor. What I mean is that Roanoke has such a unique atmosphere of down home charm despite being a rather sizeable metropolitan area. When I first moved here, I dreaded starting over again. However, I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for Roanoke to feel like “home”. Living in Roanoke is like slipping on your favorite sweater, it just fits, and it feels warm and inviting. There are two great malls for shopping, and many unique little shops. There are wonderful parks, local attractions like the Mill Mountain Zoo, and many locally owned family restaurants that have some of the best food I have ever eaten.

Location, Location, Location …

Thinking of moving to a new home? Wondering where you should start looking? Well, you should ask yourself some questions first to narrow down your search. After all, the first decision you need to make is Location, Location, Location. Isn’t that the key in real estate? Hopefully, by now you have it narrowed down to what state, and city you want your new home to be in. But that can still leave a huge area for you to search. So to narrow your search, think about these things, and organize them in order of their importance to you.

The Home Builder’s Golden Rule

kinloch_harcourt_lg-300x188.jpg (4)
Would you want someone building a house for you that they wouldn’t live in themselves? If they are building a home for your family, shouldn’t it be good enough for them as well? — of course it should. There is something to be said for the ” Golden rule” — treat others the way you would want to be treated. Did you know that the Golden rule can be applied in the home building industry as well? That is why the Boone Home’s guiding principal is ” To build each home as if it were our own.” At Boone Homes we would never build a home for anyone that we would not live in ourselves. As a matter of fact, the President of our Richmond office, and the President of our Roanoke office both live in … you guessed it, Boone Homes communities, in homes that were built by the same people that will build your new home for you. Many of our employees also live in Boone Homes communities. We know quality when we see it.

Let’s Talk Low Maintenance

What does the term low maintenance or maintenance free living mean to you? We see it in home builder ads all the time, but what exactly does it cover? Well, we can’t speak to what other builders mean when they say no maintenance living or low maintenance homes, but we can tell you what it means for all of our happy Boone Homes home buyers! The keyword to focus on is freedom, after all that is what we all cherish! Here is the complete list of what our maintenance free homes include.

You better shop around!

You know when you go to the mall and you are looking for one particular item, say a black skirt. You go to every store and you try on the ones you like, look at the prices, then at the end of the day you get the one you liked the best (and your husband rolls his eyes and says that is the first one you tried on). Well, why is homebuying any different than shopping for that skirt? You should shop around. You should visit a lot of different builders and communities and see what each one has to offer. Write down all of the things you like the best about each one.
