The website employs state-of-the-art technology that shows buyers homes that they wouldn’t otherwise see with other agents. After filling out a few pieces of information buyers will receive a link to a personalized search.

More Sunroom Customers Over Past Six Months Choose To Match Roofing of Home, Says President of Venetian Builders, Inc., Citing Better Economy, Low Interest Rates


MIAMI, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

More people who expand their homes with aluminum sunroom additions have been choosing to match roof materials to those on the original home, said Christopher Noe, president of Venetian Builders, Inc., Miami, commenting on a trend hes seen develop over the past six months.

Sunrooms can stand safely and weather tight with just their insulated roofing panels, Noe said. Many homeowners go that route simply because its the most affordable way to get all-season square footage. But increasingly, especially over the past half-year, buyers of sunroom installations are asking us to match the roofing on their home.

The advantage of matched roofing is purely aesthetic, Noe said.

Go to a gallery of quality sunrooms and youll see that if a roofline is continued over the sunroom, matching roof materials makes the end result appear as one unit, not an addition, Noe said. If the roofline is separate, matching the clay tiles or other roofing materials still makes the sunroom look like it belongs.

What Noe expects to see is a decision by more patio room customers, not just sunroom buyers, to match roofing materials.

The buyer of, say, a Miramar patio enclosure typically has a lower budget than the buyer of a Boca Raton sunroom, Noe said. But with the advances in insulated all-weather patio enclosures, homeowners are discovering that adding enclosed patio room living space is affordable, and they have money left in their budget for roof matching.

Citing reports from census.gov, Noe notes that Americans moved more in 2012 than in 2011, but still at historically low rates. The longer stays are combining with improving real estate markets to increase equity.

To get the space they need, homeowners are adding on, Noe said. Its cheaper than buying a bigger house and paying closing costs and moving charges.

The time from permitting to occupancy on an aluminum-frame addition is shorter than for traditional construction methods, Noe said, adding convenience.

Low interest rates make additions more affordable, he said. Bankrate.com recently reported the average rate for a home-equity line of credit was 5.03 percent.

Go to an online loan payment calculator such as ihsloans.com and youll see that a $ 25,000 loan would cost just over $ 265 a month with a 10-year payoff, Noe said. Thats doable for many homeowners who have been in their homes a while and built up equity.

Venetian Builders installs sunrooms, patio enclosures and strong but elegant screen pool enclosures in West Palm Beach, Weston, Wellington, Davie, Miramar, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Miami, Homestead and all communities nearby. Venetian Builders estimates are free, detailed and written.

Skier Visits, Revenues Up at CNL Lifestyle Properties Ski Resorts Over Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Weekend


Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) January 25, 2013

CNL Lifestyle Properties, a real estate investment trust (REIT), reported a significant increase in attendance at its 17 ski resorts over the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday weekend. The resorts reported a 37 percent increase in paid skier visits during the weekend and a 41 percent increase in revenue compared to the previous year.

This years strong holiday results compared with the 2011-2012 ski season are encouraging. Last season, the ski visits were negatively affected by record warmth and lack of natural snowfall. It is particularly gratifying to note that our portfolio of resorts reported a 1 percent increase in holiday visits and a 9 percent increase in revenues compared with the 2010-2011 ski season, which was the all-time record year for the U.S. ski industry, said Steve Rice, senior vice president and managing director of CNL Lifestyle Properties ski and mountain portfolio.

Ample cold temperatures and snowfall early in the ski season were key factors in driving skier visits. Capital investments by CNL Lifestyle Properties, which have opened up more ski terrain and boosted snow-making capacity at some resorts, were also a contributing factor.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday weekend is traditionally one of the biggest weekends for ski resorts, and this year is no exception, Rice said. Many of our resorts had excellent weather and travel conditions which helped generate increased visits and revenue.

CNL Lifestyle Properties owns the nations largest portfolio of ski resorts. Most of the properties are leased back to operators under a triple-net lease, with the operators responsible for the day-to-day operations of the resorts.

Since acquiring the ski and resort properties, CNL Lifestyle Properties has spent more than $ 220 million in ongoing capital investments as well as $ 105 million in capital maintenance funding. The addition of hundreds of acres of ski terrain to several resorts, such as Sugarloaf Mountain Resort in Maine, also played an important role in increasing visitor attendance as the added acreage allows for a lower skier density across ski trails, which improves the skier experience.

The strong Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday weekend comes less than a month after strong Christmas and New Years Day holidays at the resorts. CNL Lifestyle Properties saw paid skier visits between Dec. 24, 2012 and Jan. 1, 2013 at its resorts rise by 37 percent compared with the same time period a year ago while revenues also rose by 37 percent during the same period.

These holiday results are encouraging signs for the remainder of the season, though they are simply a snapshot in time of the ski industry, said Rice. While good weather always remains a key factor, as we look ahead, we are cautiously optimistic about the upcoming Presidents Day and spring break holidays.
