Design Your Dream Home

Categories: Communities, Tips | Posted: June 15, 2017

Richfield Homes recently introduced an exclusive app to their communities which allows you to explore the floor plans offered and customize it to what you are looking for.  This app will show you information about the community, provide you with all the floor plans, show the structural changes that you can make, let you select your favorite home site and even print or email the customized brochure to yourself.

This allows you to explore your options in the comfort of your own home.  By simply going here, you will be able to click on the “Find Your Home” tab, select “Communities,” find a location that suites your need and click on it.  Once you are on the community page, you will see tabs across the top.  You will click on the “Interactive Floor Plans” tab.  This launches the specialized app for that community.

On a desktop, you can navigate from screen to screen by clicking on “next” at the top of the page and on a mobile device, you can navigate the site by clicking on the green arrows.  Once you can see the different plans offered, there are a few different options.  You can explore each plan by selecting it and clicking next.  If you are looking for an easier search option, you can explore the “options” tab on the left hand side.  By selecting these, it will narrow your search down to homes that fit your criteria.  After selecting a plan and clicking next, you will be able to select the elevation that you prefer.  Note that the elevation is the exterior appearance of the home.

Once you go into the floor plan, you will see a list of structural options that you can select.  As you select them, the floor plan updates to show you a home that is customized and tailored to your needs.  On a mobile device, you will click on the three lines in the top left corner which will provide you access to these options.  The next step is to select the exterior paint color scheme that you prefer.  Then select your home site.  If you cannot select a home site, there may be a few reasons why.  First, the home site may be sold, second the home site may already have a home planned for it or third, we may not have a home site available at this time.  Once you’ve found the perfect place for your home, select next and you will have the option to save, email, share, download or design another home.  If you decide to do this prior to working with a sales associate, you can always print it off and bring it to the model to show what you are looking for.

Although we have this great tool, we are also here to make your search even easier, so visit a sales office or call the number on the side of this screen for direct assistance in finding the perfect home for you.

Ways to Make Your Garden the Best You’ve Had

Categories: CO, Tips | Posted: May 4, 2017

With gardening season right around the corner, are you prepared to create a gorgeous, healthy garden?  Do you know what your leaves are telling you?  Are you going to make the most out of your Richfield Homes yard?

Here are some ways to guide you during your growing cycle:

Check your leaves:

  • Do you have a pest problem? You can tell by bugs being on the leaves or even holes indicating that bugs are eating your plants.  Don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to rid your plants of these pesky pests.
  • Are you over-watering your plants? If so, the leaves will be wilted and yellow in color.  This could mean that your soil isn’t providing the proper drainage and the roots may be drowning.  You can replant the plants or add sand to the soil.
  • Did you pay attention to the plant description card? If not, your plants may be experiencing a lack of sunlight, which is essential for some plants growth and health.  The leaves may appear droopy or even faded in color.  You may need to transplant the plant to a sunnier location.
  • Are you watering enough? If the leaves are crunchy or appear dry, chances are you are not watering your plants enough.  Ensure that you are watering your plants often and consistently.

Did you know your plants may have nutrient deficiencies?

Check your leaves:

  • Are the tips/edges of your leaves yellow? That may mean that there is a potassium deficiency and that you should add compost waste to the soil or even plant citrus rinds in the soil to help get your plants the potassium it needs.
  • Are the veins and tips of your plants leaves yellow? If so, it’s possible there may be a nitrogen deficiency.  Fix this by adding coffee grounds or organic compost to the soil.
  • Are your leaves showing discolorations? If so, get some kelp extract and spray the plant with it because it may have a zinc deficiency.
  • Are your leaves mostly yellow? If so, it’s possible there is an iron deficiency, which is caused by having the wrong pH level.  This may require you to alter the phosphorus that is in the soil.

Richfield Homes Celebrates 5 Years in Business

Categories: CO, New Homes in Berthoud, News | Posted: May 1, 2017

In May of 2012, co-founders Will Edgington and Serge Goldberg, realized that it was the right time to build affordable, quality homes in their native state.  Will and Serge understood then – as they do now- that they key to success as a home builder is not cutting costs by cutting corners.  When you have the right team with the right mindset, you can build with quality, affordability and energy efficiency in a smarter way.

Every Richfield home includes an array of included features that other builders consider an upgrade.  In addition, Richfield has our own Design Studio and consultants, which allows buyers to customize their home to their personal taste.  In fact, Richfield Homes will be celebrating their fifth year in business by offering a $2,500 credit to our Design Studio to any home buyer in the Prairie Star community that purchases a Meadow Collection home between May 1st and May 31st and uses our preferred lender, Citywide Home Loans (Jodi Showman’s team).

Richfield Homes’ consistently high Guild Quality customer satisfaction scores attest to our success in this area.  “We stay small, so we can respond to what our customers want and need,” explains Goldberg.  It’s that mentality that has made this small business such a success.

“From the start, we wanted this company to be agile, to be able to adapt to changes in the market,” said Edgington.  “You can only do that when you are local and have a deeper investment in your community, when you live and work and remain close to the people you serve.”
