Great Grilled Steak for Your 4th of July BBQ

Great Grilled Steak for Your 4th of July BBQ

Joseph Coupal - Friday, June 29, 2018

Honeywood Apartment Homes in Roanoke VAAre you having a BBQ at your apartments in Roanoke, VA for the Fourth of July? If so, try out this great recipe from Southern Living.

Strip Steak with Rosemary Butter is a great option for smaller 4th of July celebrations. After all, you don’t want to be tied to the grill all night. Seasoned strip steaks hot off the grill pair perfectly with rosemary and lemon-infused butter. Our recipe makes four servings, but adjust to suit your guest list. Top each steak with Rosemary Butter and serve with a fresh cucumber salad and oven-roasted potatoes. Lemon rind gives the Rosemary Butter a fresh flavor that pairs wonderfully with the steaks. This recipe might look time consuming on first glance but, with just 15 minutes of prep time and 8 minutes at the grill, it will come together quicker than you think.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind, divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 (6-oz.) beef strip steaks (1/2 inch thick)

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together butter, rosemary, 1 tsp. grated lemon rind, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Step 2

Combine Italian seasoning and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in remaining 1 tsp. lemon rind. Rub mixture over steaks. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Step 3

Grill steaks, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 3 to 4 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Serve with butter.

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%.
