Roanoke, VA Named a Best Affordable Place to Live

Roanoke, VA Named a Best Affordable Place to Live

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 22, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VARoanoke in Virginia's Blue Ridge has earned a spot on another Top 10 list for its outstanding quality of life!

Roanoke is ranked No. 3 on the new list of "2018 Best Affordable Places to Live" published by Livability.

According to the criteria, the list was compiled based on a review of over 2,000 cities around the country and selected based on a combination of cost of living, entertainment, median income, economy, healthcare, and amenities.

With over 600 miles of trails and a reputation as one of the best regions on the East Coast for outdoor recreation, combined with a local economy that is reinventing itself around healthcare & technology and an affordable cost of living, Roanoke is becoming a very attractive place to live, as evidenced by its spot on the list.

Livability cites the area's temperate climate, rich variety of opportunities for outdoor recreation, and cultural offerings like the Taubman Museum of Art and Roanoke Symphony Orchestra.

The following is an excerpt from the section about Roanoke:

"So Roanoke is definitely affordable — but why is it a good place to live? Well, let's start with the climate. Roanoke enjoys four distinct seasons and tends to lack the extremes of other seasonal cities. It gets much less snow than average, nearly 30 fewer days of precipitation, stays a bit warmer in the winter, and has more sunny days than your average American city. And you can enjoy this climate thoroughly with a wide range of outdoor adventures at your fingertips. Roanoke has been recognized as one of America’s Best Trail Towns, and the famous Appalachian Trail runs north of the city. If you'd prefer a scenic drive, the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway can’t be beat."

Spotlighting a Wonderful Apartment Community in Roanoke, VA

Spotlighting a Wonderful Apartment Community in Roanoke, VA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 15, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAWe'd like to take a look at and celebrate the community in which we live and work. It’s an opportunity for us to highlight the areas that we find so special and the places we choose to be a part of.

There’s no better place to start than where we first began: Blacksburg and Roanoke, two beautiful cities in Southwest Virginia. Our original corporate headquarters, located in Blacksburg, is where everything started in 1966 when Harry H. Hunt III, the founder of HHHunt, saw the need for faculty and student housing at Virginia Tech.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blacksburg and Roanoke are special places for a number of reasons. The communities boast stunning scenery and natural beauty, tons of outdoor activities, great wineries, markets and boutique shops, Mill Mountain Zoo, and more. Both cities have eclectic and delicious food scenes and the Hotel Roanoke is a beautiful and historic hotel definitely worth a visit. And, of course, we can’t forget about Virginia Tech. The world-class university serves as the heart of Blacksburg. There’s lots of Hokie pride at HHHunt!

We have a number of apartment communities in the area, including FoxRidge and Hethwood, which are located in Blacksburg, and Honeywood, which is conveniently situated near downtown Roanoke.

We are thankful and excited to continue serving as an engaged community partner in these bustling and vibrant cities!

Here's How Much More It Cost to Own vs. Rent in Virginia!

Here's How Much More It Cost to Own vs. Rent in Virginia!

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, June 07, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAOwning a home is often considered the American dream — and it's an expensive one. Homeowners in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., pay from 33% to 93% more for housing each month than do renters living in the same state, according to a new NerdWallet analysis.

But many homeowners reap benefits that you can't get from renting, such as financial security and stability, tax deductions and a vehicle for retirement savings. 

While renting can't offer those long-term financial benefits, it's cheaper to rent on a month-to-month basis, the analysis found. If you're wondering how to save money for a down payment, renting can help you build that nest egg — but in extremely expensive or competitive markets, renting might be better for the long haul.

To determine the monthly homeownership premium — the additional cost of owning instead of renting, expressed as a percentage — NerdWallet compared 2015 American Community Survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau for the median gross rent and median homeownership cost in each state and Washington, D.C. Median gross rent includes the costs of monthly rent and utilities for all kinds of rental properties, and median homeownership cost includes monthly mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance and utilities.

This comparison doesn't include the down payment required to buy a home, which is traditionally 20% of the home price for conventional mortgages, but is lower for FHA or VA loans.

Key takeaways

Owning is more expensive everywhere. Across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., it costs more each month to own a home than to rent. The median cost people pay nationwide to own a home is 54% more than the median cost to rent each month.

The smallest difference is still a third more to own. The state where the premium to own a home is lowest is Florida, where it costs a median of 33% more to own than to rent. The states with the next lowest premiums are Colorado (40%) and Arizona (41%).

In some states, the cost of owning far eclipses renting. In New Jersey, the state with the highest homeownership premium, the median monthly cost of owning is nearly double that of renting (93%). The next most expensive places to own are Rhode Island, where the median homeownership cost is 84% higher than renting, and Connecticut, where owners pay a median of 82% more than renters each month for housing.

Here's how much more it costs to own vs. rent each month in Virginia - 48%.

Virginia: The East Coasts' Best State

Virginia: The East Coasts' Best State

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 04, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAVirginia - what a place to live. Growing up here is one of the greatest gifts. Simply because you get the best of both worlds. Between mountains, beaches, countrysides, cities, and an obvious change in each season, Virginia proves to be the best state on the East Coast.

1. Mountains

Especially mountains in the fall. Whether you grew up hiking them all the time, or if you have never hiked a day in your life, you can always brag about having the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in your homeland.

2. Virginia Beach.

We live on the coast. Day trip to the beach? Not a problem. Pack up your car and get going with suntan oil and beach chairs.

3. Countryside

There are plenty of windy back roads to roll windows down and drive. Cows. Horses. Goats. Dogs. You'll pass them all.

4. Cities

Virginia Beach. Richmond. Norfolk. Roanoke. Lynchburg. Charlottesville. And like all Virginians, we claim D.C. as one of our own, too.

5. The weather

In the spring, there are beautiful flowers and rain. Being in a college town, the summers are laid back and feel like home. The students are gone, and it gives the rest of the residents a chance to sit around the pool and enjoy the sun. In the fall, the leaves change and temperatures start to drop. There is football and apple picking, along with lots of flannel. In the winter is when people question whether or not Virginia is a northern or southern state. It all just depends on the year. The winters will no doubt get cold, but the snowfall depends on the year. Some years get several feet, and some years get short of an inch. Whatever the amount, this is a state that can, and does get snow.

No other state is able to brag about the same mountains, beaches, countrysides, cities, or weather like this one. Who cares if no one knows whether Virginia is a northern or southern state, it's the best state regardless.

Virginia Ranks 9 in Top Ten Best States 2018

Virginia Ranks 9 in Top Ten Best States 2018

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 12, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAMost Americans do not choose where they grow up and often end up living in the same place as adults, either for financial reasons or because of social and familial connections. Still, many Americans choose to pack up and move to a new state — usually in search of better life.

People who contemplate such a move would certainly consider a state’s overall quality of life. While every person is different and may weigh certain factors more than others, quality of life generally consists of a multitude of factors, including an area’s economy, jobs market, income levels, poverty, crime, education levels, health care, transportation, and whether the area is generally desirable.

Based on these factors and others, 24/7 Wall St. ranked all 50 states for overall quality of life.

9. Virginia

  • 10-yr. population change: +10.1% (21st largest increase)
  • Annual unemployment: 4.0% (tied — 14th lowest)
  • Poverty rate: 11.0% (tied — 12th lowest)
  • Life expectancy at birth: 79.1 years (25th shortest)

Problems with crime tend to be local rather than statewide, but across Virginia crime tends to be low and the state is relatively crime free compared to most of the country. There were just 217 violent crimes reported in the state for every 100,000 residents, nearly half the national figure of 397 incidents per 100,000 people.

Virginians are also among the most likely to have a college degree, which often results in higher incomes and better quality of life across a population. Just over 38% of Virginia adults have a bachelor’s degree, compared to 31.3% of adults nationwide. This high educational attainment rate may help explain Virginia’s relatively low unemployment rate. Last year, average unemployment was 4.0%, well below the national average rate of 4.9%.

Apartment Hunting Tips for College Students

Apartment Hunting Tips for College Students

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 05, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAIt could be freshman year, sophomore year or even the upperclassman years but there comes a time when the stress of finding an apartment will begin. The key to success in college apartment shopping is to start looking and gathering information sooner rather than later. Apartment landlords like to start easing early.

Apartment complexes will start sending you mail on campus a few months prior to lease signing. Make sure you read and save each and every one of those pamphlets. Apartments tend to fill up quickly in college towns so it is always a smart idea to have a handful of apartment options for yourself and your roommates.

Once you start gathering information it’s important to have open communication with your parents. It’s important to ask for their advice on pricing and what to look for in an apartment. The price of apartments near colleges can be over-priced because they know they are in high demand.

Most students feel it is convenient to live in apartments on campus. Sometimes you can find good deals and clean apartments near campus, but if there are only a few available and you have a car or bus service available, off campus apartments could be a good choice. Apartments off campus tend to be nicer and sometimes cheaper. However, the best way to know this for sure is not by just researching online and reading pamphlets. Another key to successful apartment hunting is booking a showing with the apartment office to see exactly where you would be living.

Some apartment leasing agencies try to get students to sign leases without physically showing the tenants the apartment they will be living in. Be sure to view the apartment in person. Securing an appointment will also give you a look into how friendly the staff is and how the property owner treats their prospective renters.

An apartment says a lot about a person and it’s critical to have a reasonably priced and clean apartment where you will feel comfortable. If you follow this advice, you should be in good shape. Happy hunting!
