Richmond Real Estate: Ikea House?
Hey Richmonders! Did you know that Ikea and Ideabox are teaming up together to sell "modular, pre-fab, fully furnished homes?" I sure as heck didn't until I read the June/July 2012 Commonwealth Magazine by the Virginia Association of Realtors.
According to the article, the Activ Home will be approximately 745sqft and will be going GREEN with Energy Star appliances, energy saving toilets, and the latest in modern materials. In addition, the home will boast Abstrakt cabinets, Tundra Maple flooring, and Pax wardrobes! Oh, and the price? Under $100K!
As mentioned in the story, the concept of the "catalog home" isn't new and one only needs to look back at the "Sears Modern Homes" as an example. And, it was even noted that Thomas Edison himself tried his hand in this market with "pour-in-place concrete homes." I know, I thought the same thing -"Huh!"
So Richmond, what do you think of this new Ikea Activ Home? Is this something you would be interested in? Personally, it wouldn't fit the needs of my family of four humans plus 2 dogs and one cat. However, I think the concept is pretty fascinating and I can't wait to see what happens in the future in terms of sales.
