Quality luxury homes and how you know?It all starts with determining if the home is a quality built luxury home. Just because a home cost is well over a million dollars does not automatically qualify it as a well built and high quality luxury home. Homes are built to the county building code in all states and the building code only insures your vital safety in most cases and has absolutely nothing to do with quality aspects of a home. We help clients determine if that luxury home they are interested in buying is really a high quality home and worth the money they will pay for that home. We also educate our clients on things to pay close attention to when looking at luxury homes.
Negotiating the price on luxury homesAfter determining that the luxury home is quality we will then help them in the negotiation process on that home. We are very scientific in the approach in which we take when working with our luxury home buyers to once again make sure they get that luxury home for the best possible price. There are many tools that we have at our disposal to determine the homes value, how much equity the existing home owner has in the home, tax valuation and the motivation level of the seller. We enjoy the smile we see on our clients faces at closing when they are pleased with their new home purchases. Luxury homes do cost more and therefore it is important that you choose the best Realtor in order to save more.

Eco homes minimize site damageThe home site and trees are usually preserved when building an eco home. Erosion will be managed to minimize site runoff and landscaping will be implemented with native plants to minimize any water needs for the outdoor areas. Water catchment systems may also be utilized to contain rainwater which can then be used for site irrigation. The goal of site management on an eco home is to build your home with minimal damage to the home site area. Now that we have our foundation installed and our eco home positioned to the South to utilize the suns energy let us move on to the homes energy conservation techniques.
Eco homes use less energy, water and are healthyEco homes will be built using advanced framing techniques to insure that the home envelope gets insulated perfectly and that all voids are caulked and sealed to eliminate air infiltration. High efficiency heating and cooling, water heaters, lighting and appliances will be utilized to assure that the home is as energy efficient as possible. An eco home is built in a high quality manner, insulated and sealed well so that all heat loss from the home is minimized. Low flow water fixtures will be used throughout the home to minimize water consumption and non toxic building materials will be used in the homes construction to assure better indoor air quality. Eco homes are energy efficient, high quality, healthier, use less water and are better for the environment.
