See Verado, an exciting new neighborhood in north Meridian

If you travel along Ustick Road between Eagle Rd. and Locust Grove, you have likely noticed the new development that has seemingly appeared overnight. Blackrock Homes is about to unveil Verado, their newest neighborhood in North Meridian. With all of the accolades Boise Valley and Meridian have received in the past year, it’s exciting to offer a series of beautiful homes with high level finishes in a close-in location and at a moderate price point. The Village at Meridian, St. Lukes – Meridian, and I-84 access are all just minutes away, not to mention the endless list of shopping and dining venues along Eagle Road. Supremely functional and surprisingly spacious floor plans include two single level townhome layouts, and five different two-story designs. Phase one consists of 60 homesites with a centralized park featuring a playground and half-size basketball court. With the growing appreciation for smaller-scaled footprints and low maintenance living, lawn care for the front and backyards is provided through HOA, including pressurized irrigation and maintenance on the common areas. The first wave of homes will be released in mid November, with move-in dates in early January 2018. Expected pricing to begin at $222,900.

Neighbors connect SoVi’s first community event

Neighbors had a chance to meet and choose a pumpkin, too, at a recent fall neighborhood event. It was our first event of this type and was arranged in a way for neighbors to meet in a casual setting. We converted the garage of our decorated Mesa model home into fall styled gathering room and centered around “It’s the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown” theme.

 

 

We brought in a truckload of large and extra large pumpkins from The Berry Farm that were a beautiful seasonal display all on their own.

 

Prolific mums, fall decor and music added a festive note.

 

 

Refreshments included a popcorn bar with Charlie Brown’s friends’ names, such as “Pig Pen Peanuts” and “Marcie’s M&M’s” with hot apple cider and bottled water. But the true highlights were the meatballs and pumpkin cake provided by two generous homeowners. We had nearly 50% of our homeowners stop by and to be sure to take a pumpkin on their way home. It was a fabulous, fun night and a great way to welcome in this colorful season!

3d Tours deliver a realistic virtual experience

Imagine the ability to walk through a property without leaving the comfort of your home? The marked advancements in 3d photography offer exactly that in a surprisingly easy-to-navigate way. It’s proving to be an especially valuable reference for buyers looking to purchase a new construction home that is not quite finished. These tours create the benefit of navigating through a similar model home, previously finished and sometimes decorated, to have a sense of space. We are currently developing our 3d virtual tours for each of our floor plans at SoVi and Verado. As each one is finalized, we post them on the respective websites, as well as linked to the appropriate MLS listing(s). From there it is fed to an unlimited number of real estate websites, including Realtor, Zillow and Trulia. 

Viewers can choose to look at a home through Dollhouse or Floor plan views, but the Dollhouse view seems the most interactive to me, with transparent white circles guiding you through the layout. With either format, a light blue circle serves as a visual to let you know where your cursor is. You have the ability to rotate your view entirely around a room, or zoom in for a closer view of a cabinet finish or countertop surface, etc. Here are some screenshots from the Mesa tour:

   

While the jury is still out, for us at least, if 3d virtual tours can fully replace the value of professional photography on existing homes, these tours are certainly fun!
