Greener Homes

The Reno Housing Market and You

Adam EdgintonYRHomes

Over the last several years the Reno housing market has seen it all. Extreme highs and extreme lows. But what is happening now? And where is the market going? Well first let me say that the buyers market is coming to an end. Home sales are decreasing and prices are on the rise. After the market crash in 2008 there was a large inventory of homes in the area that sat vacant. Foreclosure rates went through the roof which only added to the already large inventory of homes. Due to the large supply we saw the price of homes drop … Read More

Why You Should Buy A New Home Over A Used One

Adam EdgintonYRHomes

New Home vs Old Home

When you’re looking to buy a house you have to decide whether to buy a new home or a used one. With used homes selling for an average rate of 16% less than new homes, many, especially first time buyers, lean towards a used home. What many fail to account for is, costs that accrue after you buy a used home to fix it up to better suit your needs. While you may get what seems like a deal on a used home, you may end up paying more than you would have had you bought new. The costs to … Read More

What You Didn’t Know About Prairie Style Houses

Adam EdgintonYRHomes

When most people hear prairie style house, they might jump to the idea of a simple house out on the prairie with a white picket fence around it, somewhere in the Midwest. This type of house is a prairie house, however it is what the original style looked like. The prairie style house is a bit different than that, they are designed to blend with the flat landscape of a prairie as well as have open interior spaces. “The good building is not one that hurts the landscape, but one which makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before … Read More

New Construction Progress

Christo ReynenYRHomes

If you ever wanted a pink house, you should see one that has fresh floor sealant applied.    Not only is the fragrance powerful, but also the bright fuscia-like color.   It is quite impressive in so many ways.   It certainly invites flooring to cover up the bright sealant.   Progress is seen during construction everyday.   While this bright pink sealant is a bit of an eyesore today, tomorrow it will be a beautiful wood stamped tile.   It is truly remarkable to see these masterpieces come together.   It takes a team of dedicated individuals to dream, manage, construct, and eventually sell to a … Read More

Velux Solar Tubes

Christo ReynenYRHomes

Thanks to Burke Roofing and some foresight we illuminated this Junior Master suite with incredible natural light.   I wish I had a before picture to show, but it was so dark the flash literally wiped the photo out making it undesirable to say the least.  I’d say this solar tube makes it highly desirable.  Just another nice feature that separates our homes from the competition.  Transforming space is what we do.  This bathroom went from the dark ages to the Sunshine state with the help of this solar tube.  There is no electricity being used here, just refracted light down a … Read More
