La Tierra at Miramonte Reflects Great Home Prices in Reno

by racheal

La Tierra Cruise Give a WayAcross the country, home prices continue to drop – but did you know that the median new home price in Reno hasn’t changed for the past seven months? According to the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors November monthly report, the median price of resale homes has hovered between $149,000 and $154,000 since May of 2011. That could mean that in the northern Nevada area, we may soon see prices begin to climb. You never know!

How does that affect you as a buyer? If you’re hoping to buy in this region, now may be the best time to take advantage of low home prices, while they’re still low. We recommend you take a look at La Tierra at Miramonte, a community of Reno new homes with prices in the high $100,000s. These are quality family homes, ready for move in and located in a scenic, elevated area of Reno. Oh, and there’s more: For a limited time only, buyers at La Tierra can receive a free cruise for two!

Again, prices are low now…but who knows for how long? To learn more about La Tierra, call (775) 626-7885, visit the La Tierra at Miramonte new homes in person at 2797 Earthstone Dr., Sparks, NV 89436.

Valencia at Del Sur: European Beauty, American Value

by racheal

Valencia Homes Out Door Living AreaThere’s a lot of talk about America becoming a “European society”; for some people, that’s actually a welcome reality, at least in terms of aesthetics. Those people may appreciate a neighborhood like Valencia at Del Sur, a California West Communities neighborhood that was inspired by its namesake on the Mediterranean coast. How is this inspiration evident? Through the open air living room, the outdoor Del Sur room and entertaining spaces that flow from the kitchen all the way outside. Through the gathering spaces that are the highlight of the home. Now that’s European.

Of course, having lots of space is an all-American value feature too. Fortunately, Valencia at Del Sur has it. The footprint ranges here are 2,996-3,495 square feet, with up to 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There’s an optional downstairs bedroom, too, and an optional office or tech space. Priced from the high $600,000s, these San Diego new homes are worth every penny.

To inquire about touring the homes of Valencia at Del Sur, contact the sales office at (858) 367-8720, from the hours of Monday: 1pm-5pm Monday, Tuesday-Sunday 10am-5pm. Address and directions will be provided at that time.
