Final Homesites Released in Chilesburg

Ball Homes has released the final remaining homesites in Chilesburg Landing and Chilesburg Trace. More than 70 lots have been released for sale within the two communities and they offer 49 different floor plans, including selected Villa and Traditions plans. Lots typically range from forty-five feet to sixty feet, with homes ranging from 1500sf to over 3500sf. Homes include two car garages or larger, three to five bedrooms, with many flex room and loft options available. Prices start at $169,950 in Chilesburg Trace and $209,900 in Chilesburg Landing, at time of release.

For more than a decade, the Chilesburg subdivision in Lexington has been a flagship community, boasting the first Ball Homes model village, as well as one of the first communities built with newer design trends, including boulevards, open spaces, pocket parks, and walking trails. With the subdivision amenities and the award winning floor plans, many homeowners have wanted the opportunity to live in such a desirable neighborhood. "The demand for the Chilesburg subdivision remained strong, even during the softening of the market," said Realtor Mike Wheatley, the Sales Team Manager for Central Kentucky. "Home values in Chilesburg remained steady, and in some cases even appreciated, even as other markets remained stagnant or depreciated."

Top 3 New Year's Resolutions

Tonight, everyone will be celebrating the end of 2012 and look forward to 2013. For many people, the new year means a fresh start and a new outlook. For a majority of people, a new year means new resolutions: pledges to make a change in the upcoming year for a better life. We’ve narrowed down a list of the three most common New Year’s resolutions and included some tips on how to help you stay focused in 2013.

1. Get In Shape
There’s no doubt that Get In Shape/Get Fit/Lose Weight/Get Healthy is one of the top New Year’s resolution on many people’s list. Why not let your home help you keep your resolution? Losing weight starts with being more active! Use the bonus room in your new Ball Home to put a treadmill or weight machine. Take advantage of the many walking trails and parks around your subdivision, like Chilesburg or Notting Hill. Getting out and getting active around your community is a step in the right direction to leading a healthier life!
2. Get Organized
Many of our popular floor plans offer sizable closet spaces, attic areas, and storage options; make the most of them! Install space saving shelving in your garage so that everything has a place. Use large plastic bins to store holiday decorations, sports equipment, and out of season clothing items. Reorganize your bedroom closet to make sure you aren’t keeping clothing you never wear. If you haven’t worn an item in the last 6 months, chances are you probably don’t need it. For tips on how to organize your kitchen, read our previous blog post.
3. Save More/Get out of Debt
Saving more money throughout the year starts with changing small habits, and the best place to start is by cutting energy use in your home. To save on your utility bills, lower your thermostat before you leave for work. Install compact florescent bulbs in your lamps. Switch off your electronics and lights when they aren’t in use. Utilize your fireplace instead of turning up the heat a few degrees. If you really want to take a big chunk out of your debt this year, why not look into refinancing your home? With mortgage rates at historic lows, now is the time to refinance and save money on your mortgage payment. Contact a loan officer at Walden Mortgage for more information on your refinancing options.

From all of us at Ball Homes, we wish you a very happy New Year and we look forward to what 2013 has in store!
