Thanksgiving and Black Friday are now behind us and our minds are thinking of sleigh rides, Christmas trees, shopping, gifts and retiring to the country to enjoy the peaceful season. Retreating to enjoy the season is easy when you live in the country setting of the Coach Homes of Kinloch. Why? To start off, the neighborhood is considered a maintenance free neighborhood. Your driveway is cleared after the snow settles in the winter, painting is done on the home as needed, gutters are kept clean and many other tedious chores are no longer yours to complete when you purchase a no maintenance home in Richmond, Va. No maintenance equals a winter wonderland and, for that matter, summer paradise. (more…)

This year we have experienced the best new home sales we have seen in the last four years. Bellingham at Twin Hickory, a community of no maintenance homes in Richmond, Va., has seen the most significant increases. These homes are located in the heart of Glen Allen and boast the most convenient lifestyle. Surrounded by a network of sidewalks, parks, dining and entertainment, the community can arguably be defined as one of the best around. One can be at the library, at the park or merely enjoying the afternoon sunshine during a stroll.
Bellingham at Twin Hickory has been designed for one level living. Each home has been architecturally enhanced with the idea of reducing steps to and from the main living area. No home in the community will have more than two steps from the street into the home. (more…)
The year 2012 has had its fair share of good and difficult days. As we celebrate this holiday season it is good to remember what we are thankful for. Today, Boone Homes, a Richmond, Virginia new home builder, is proud to announce we are 15% ahead of sales as compared to last year. For this increase we are thankful. Thankful that so many have chosen Boone Homes as the Richmond new home builder of their choice, not only for the past, but also for the present. We are thankful for the many who could have chosen another home either new or used, yet chose to purchase a new Boone Home. We are also thankful for those who are still considering a new Boone Home.

In the midst of this season of remembrance and thankfulness, it is good to remember the people who work day to day to create our beautiful new homes in Richmond.
The process could not start without our architectural staff who works tirelessly to design every detail of the homes. Nor could we expect the homes to sparkle with the latest finishes if our selections coordinators did not have a great eye for design. Construction would grind to a halt and production would not be able to move homeowners in on time if we did not have an excellent production team lead by the most competent experts in the field. Pieces of the home would be lacking if our estimating department did not control the costs and ensure complete packages are delivered to each Richmond custom home. We also could not expect the office to be run efficiently without the commitment of our office staff who collect, organize, receive, pay and administrate all our sales. Boone Homes’ sales professionals are commendable as they are dedicated to each client personally and endeavor to make the experience as personal and pleasant as possible. (more…)
Sales for custom homes in Richmond, Virginia are on the rise. Boone Homes in Westcott at Grey Oaks has seen the greatest increase year over year since the great recession started. One simply has to drive down the streets of Westcott at Grey Oaks to see the activity which was silent or absent in years past.
Each new home being built in Westcott at Grey Oaks is equipped with the latest technology and construction practices. Take the latest custom home sold at 11944 Westcott Landing Court, which was designed to be built with a basement. While basements are one of the most requested features of a new home, there are several types of construction methods which can be used. The most common methods include cinder block on a concrete footing, engineered walls directly on a crushed stone base directly on the ground or solid concrete poured walls poured on top of a concrete footing.

Still undecided about what to do? You still have time to research, understand what can be done and make a decision. We still have a couple of weeks left. Not to vote – that has already been decided, but you can still decide on what your kitchen will look like in the newest home located in Tarrington on the James. This new home located at 3225 Fulbrook Drive in Midlothian, Virginia is at a stage where the last little bit of siding is being applied and soon the kitchen will be installed. Each graceful detail of the home’s interior is in the undecided category. Not that the award winning selections coordinators at Boone Homes, a Richmond custom home builder, have not already analyzed what the options could be. We are only awaiting a decision.
If you are ready to purchase a new home in Richmond, VA it is always a good idea to compare available inventory of used homes with the available inventory of new homes. Why? Great question. When you entertain the idea of purchasing a used home, though your investment may be sound, there is stylistic and personal preference updating to contend with. While this may not be a tremendous issue, updating may just be the issue worth considering in the initial cost of homeownership equation. For example, replacing appliances in the kitchen to a similar appliance with a more contemporary flair or simply a color change can cost anywhere from $2,000 for simpler homes to over $10,000 and you still have a used home.
A good reason to purchase a Midlothian no maintenance home in the neighborhood of Tarrington on the James is because you are within a leisurely stroll of the river. Within 15 minutes from your doorstep you could be enjoying a path canopied with the fall colors of red and yellow leaves, and listening to the sounds orchestrated by nature’s finest musicians. Each leisurely step removes the toxins of care from the day and settles anxiety into a relaxed spirit.
Couple this amazing walk to the river with the benefits of a no maintenance home, one specifically located at 4007 Caddington Drive, Midlothian VA, and you can ignore the yard work and take a walk every day of the week. Imagine how relaxing your life would be. No raking, mulching, weeding, seeding, aerating, irrigating, gutter cleaning, painting, wheelbarrow, shovel or rake ever again. Not a bad deal.
