Some things in real estate never change and it is still true that when searching for the perfect new home, most folks agree. It is all about location, location, location.

If the perfect location for your family is near the award-winning DeSoto County schools – Lewisburg – then the Villages at Hawks Crossing East is the perfect.  Within walking distance to Lewisburg Schools, one of the top public schools in the State of Mississippi, Hawks Crossing features family homes on larger lots with no city taxes.  Hawks Crossing is located on Craft Rd. South of Church Rd. at Byhalia Rd.

Built on land that has a rich farming history, Hawks Crossing offers the best of both worlds – the convenience of being within minutes to the medical, entertain and shopping districts of Memphis, TN plus community schools, team sports, area churches, and locally owned shops and restaurants in Olive Branch, MS.  It’s the kind of neighborhood that is hard to find – family homes on large home sites  (big enough for a pool!)  with sidewalks within walking distance to the community school.

Everyone loves spacious, open floor plans with soaring ceilings and room to grow, but utility bills can be a concern in older homes. Grant & Co. is proud to offer new homes in Hawks Crossing that have earned the ENERGY STAR label, meaning that our homes have been designed and built to standards well above most other homes on the market today. Energy Star homes by Grant offer better quality, better comfort, better durability and greatly reduced utility and maintenance costs.  Don’t know about ENERGY STAR homes?  Click here to read how you can save up to 30 percent in utility costs.

Beat the Heat and Save Money

Categories: Conserve Energy, Family Homes, Save Money | Posted: August 5, 2014

August in the Mid-South can be brutal – heat waves combined with humidity can take a toll. It can be tough to fork out extra money to pay for the constant use of an air conditioner in the house, but at the same time, you and your family would be miserable without it. We understand this frustrating cycle, and we’ve discovered a few tips to help you stay cool and save cash during the dog days of summer:Grant Energy Efficient Homes

  • Close your blinds or curtains to keep the sun at bay. You can even put your plants on sunny windowsills to absorb some of the extra heat that comes from sunlight filtering in.
  • Use your fans. Ceiling fans are a simple way to cool an area of the room quickly – just make sure to turn them off when you finish using them. Stand alone fans also offer a quick remedy to a toasty day.
  • Turn off the lights. Modern lighting is very energy-efficient, but incandescent light bulbs produce heat as well as light. You’ll be keeping your indoor temperatures down while conserving electricity at the same time!
  • Plant foliage. Put your green thumb on display and plant trees and shrubs around your house – they will absorb heat from the sun and will offer you and your family some outdoor shady spots!
  • 18W CFLs use 76% less energy than 75W incandescent equivalents. Over the course of a year, that can add up to $8-$15 in savings per bulb replaced!
  • We wash a lot of clothes during the busy summer time.  Try using cold water to wash your clothes! Not only will you save on the energy required to heat the water, but detergents formulated for cold water will get your clothes just as clean!
  • Rather than leaving your A/C on all day so that your home is cool when you return, consider using an appliance timer to turn it on and off around your daily routine. You’ll feel as cool walking in the door as if it had been on all day; and won’t notice the difference – until you see the savings on your energy bill!

Summer will fade away before long, but make sure to follow these tips to beat the August heat in the meantime!
