Cool Your Heels on Warming That Home!

by April

Home heating is THE LARGEST use of energy and offers the greatest opportunity for saving your green this winter. Nearly 40 percent of your home energy costs go to heating. Here’s how you can save:

The Heat Lost In Your Home

• Clean or replace the furnace filter at least TWICE during the cold season. Furnaces use less energy if the airways are clear.
• Keep furniture, carpet and drapes from blocking vents.
• Set a ceiling fan at low speed to push the warm air away from the ceiling and spread it evenly throughout the room.
• Have your heating ducts and furnace professionally inspected and tuned.
• Use space heaters instead of the furnace when you can, and only if you are in the room with the heater! Don’t heat the whole house if it is just one or two people are spending the entire evening in one room, such as the family room in the evening and the bedroom at night.
• Wear warmer clothes around the house or office, even if it is just a long-sleeved shirt, and sleep with an extra blanket.

PLEASE NOTE: Warmer temperatures are recommended in homes with ill or elderly persons, as well as infants.

You can also keep that heat in by taking care of the seals in your home. Check out my Save The Seals blog. When it comes to energy, what’s good for the summer goes good for the winter!

For many people, “apartment” is synonymous with “renting”…but with the increased popularity of the urban high rise, all that is about to change. After all, why would you rent when you can own your own view of the San Diego skyline for around $1500 per month – nearly the same as most rental rates? That’s what’s available to you at Smart Corner, a San Diego high rise with apartment lofts that give you the opportunity to create your own personal canvas. 

What about the down payment? We’re glad you asked! With as little as 0.5%-3.5% down, many buyers can own at Smart Corner for a drop in the bucket. Still thinking about renting? We didn’t think so! Few other buildings in Southern California can give you the same big city experience that Smart Corner can; with 310 condos and a whopping 19 stories, the lifestyle is practically unparalleled (especially when one considers all the things to do in San Diego).

Plus, there’s the extras, like a rooftop gathering area that allows you and your guests a staggering view of the city (not to mention the ocean) while you enjoy the jacuzzi and barbeque. And yes, the Downtown San Diego condos at Smart Corner are every bit as appealing, with upgraded kitchens and plenty of room inside for that fabulous loft experience you’ve only dreamed of.

Creekside Village New Homes Offer Carefully Selected Location

by racheal

Homes at Creekside Village Entrance

With the housing boom, many buyers found themselves settling for neighborhoods that later proved undesirable. That’s what happens when builders fail to carefully select their locations; the builder takes the money and runs, and the families who trusted them to develop a secure, attractive community are left to pick up the pieces (in the form of bad school districts, crime, and eventually abandoned properties). Fortunately, there are builders who refuse to stoop to such poor quality standards – and LGI Homes is definitely one of them.

For instance: Creekside Village, an LGI community in North Houston, was masterfully executed among the beautifully wooded forests of Montgomery County. Rather than placing the neighborhood wherever there was available space, LGI selected the spot for Creekside Village based on the excellent school district, pleasant natural settings, and convenience to local amenities that that this area of the Houston region is known for.

New Home at Creekside Village Park

This makes the surroundings the perfect complement for Creekside Village’s own features, which include pathways, greenbelts, and recreational parks (and of course, a community swimming pool!). Creekside Village isn’t a neighborhood your family can settle for…it’s a neighborhood your family can love! For more information, contact Creekside Village new homes at (888) 356- 9006, ext. 340.

Canyon Crossing New Homes - Park That’s reason enough, of course – but believe it or not, there’s more.

In other words, there are lots of reasons to consider Canyon Crossing for your new home in San Antonio!
