Well-known Texas real estate developer Marcus Hiles suggests four smart tips that will help apartment seekers and homebuyers to majorly drop their energy bills in the summers. Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, Hiles follows these tricks of his own in his properties, utilizing each energy saving technique. First, he recommends having windows with a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.22 to 0.24, for example the Cascade Low E Argon Gas Win Pro Series. As the heat transfers, old windows belonging to the 1980s lose up to 100 times additional energy than a completely insulated solid wall. ͞While older casements, transoms, and sliders are attractive, having the latest windows and frames stops air and energy leakage, dropping your heat loss by 75 percent,͟ Hiles mentions.
Families and enterprising young business professionals make their homes in Marcus Hiles’ beautiful properties. Large swimming pools that remind of a luxurious resort along with outdoor summer kitchens and tanning decks are perfect for entertaining family or throwing business parties. Take the party outside with outdoor lounges feature Wi-Fi and HDTV, or take some time alone to relax in the lounge. Properties are equipped with covered parking and gates that limit access to those you want getting through, and there is 24-hour maintenance service in case of emergency, so everything is always running smoothly. Pet-friendly properties are a bonus along with events that make getting to know your neighbors an easier task.
Apartment finding website RENTCafé used U.S. Census statistics to conduct a study of the 100 largest cities in the country, comparing median incomes to rent figures to examine the most affordable U.S. cities to call home. Based on their results, three north Texas cities – Plano, Irving, and Garland – fall among the top 15 best places for renters, with tenants retaining on average up to $43,000 after all bills. Dallas, El Paso, Austin, and San Antonio also deliver respectable income to rental price ratios. Discussing ATTOM Data Solutions’ 2017 Rental Affordability Report, Marcus Hiles concluded that renting is already more cost efficient than owning a house in Dallas/Fort Worth, and is expected to continue throughout 2017 as mortgage rates and home prices continue to spike. Rounding out Texas’ placings in the top 50 were Houston, Corpus Christi, and Fort Worth, where residents spent slightly over 30 percent of their income per month on housing.
Mortgage rates had a slight upward movement during 2016 with a big change happening at the end of the year. This trend influenced the price of real estate properties. Marcus Hiles suggests that home prices in Dallas-Fort worth area had the third highest increase in the whole country. Some of the buyers are able to support that kind of change but many people are struggling. Marcus Hiles offers a favorable solution with his firm Western Rim Property Services. He claims that changes in price trends won’t affect the luxurious lifestyle and affordable prices his company has to offer.
