What is your lifestyle?

At Tri-Cities Life, we ask this question quite frequently. It helps us get to know what you are looking for, as well as what you enjoy out of life. With the help of cinematographer Tino Martinez and dealership owner Doug Overturf, we were able to put together a story that talks about a certain lifestyle that is completely obtainable in the Tri-Cities. The best part about this is that these are real people, real homes, and real dreams – all taking place in our community. So please enjoy and ask yourself, what is your lifestyle?...

From Farm To Your Table

From Farm To Your Table

There’s been recent talk about turning a part Richland into a bustling Pike’s Place Market-type of area. For those who have relocated from larger cities where Farmers Markets were fairly abundant, this news was very exciting. Even for those of us who have grown up here, it was a big development when the news first broke out. Oftentimes it’s local attractions such as these that helps define a community, or encourages people to visit/buy a home in a certain area. The demand for a larger city market vibe could be attributed to...

Living With The Essentials

Nothing beats the thrill of owning your first home…Except maybe upgrading homes, but that’s a different story. When you’re a first-time home buyer and you get the keys to your house – whether it’s been freshly built, or slightly broken-in, there’s an excitement that oftentimes is never forgotten. Some friends recently purchased a home and took that obligatory “Look, we bought a house!” picture on their new front porch, which was quickly posted to Facebook and Instagram. While people remember...

What We Can Learn From NYC Food Carts That Are Helping The Environment

Many would argue that the Tri-Cities has been known for food trucks long before they were popularized by the likes of the Food Network Channel. If you’ve grown up here, you are probably familiar with a taco truck or two. Then, in the mid-2000’s the area saw an increase in Hot dog carts. These days we are fortunate to see more diversity with the mobile food movement, such as southern flare at Ann’s Best Creole and Soul Food, and Asian flavors at Kindra’s Wok ‘N Roll. Even brick and mortar businesses have branched out to include a mobile unit,...

New Business: The Sweet Life of Krispy Kreme

These days you can pick up baked goods just about anywhere. Whether you’re grabbing a baker’s dozen of maple bars at your local Yoke’s Fresh Market; snagging some conchas from Viera’s Bakery; or enjoying some sprinkled confections at longtime Tri-City favorite Spudnuts; it’s easy to see why the Krispy Kreme franchise took its time expanding to our neck of the desert. However, with mortgage rates relaxing and more people interested in property investing, the Tri-Cities is the perfect place for new businesses. With...

Mortgage’s and pricing…what’s ahead?

Nice article from the Wall Street Journal on the mortgage rebound and price levels.  While we have a strong market in the sub $250,000 range here, that is not a trend playing out nationally.  This is an important fact to note as ‘step up’ buyers generally need to sell their existing home in order to purchase a more expensive...
