4-FRIDAY, MAY7,1993 ON THE MARKET Redwood Valley designer wins honors for innovative home On Feb. 6, the California Society of the American Institute of Building Design held its annual design competition, and Redwood Valley designer Johnathan Webb took the top award for the category of small residences. Steve Baird and Sheilah Rogers, who commissioned Webb to design their new home, are delighted that the judges recognized the merits of the design. Webb was presented with the Honor Award at the designers luncheon during the CSAIBD Annual Conference in Visalia. Long time members remarked that the competition was especially strong this year, with very high quality entries. Comments on the Baird/Rogers residence noted the strong, clean detailing, and the integration of shading into the overall architechtural concept. Competitions within the American Institute of Building Design judge entries on energy efficiency, as well as the usual aesthetic/artistic criteria. The Baird/Rogers residence was well qualified to compete on this level, as much care went into the detailing for judicious use of energy. The home was built by Ukiah contractors, Joe Garnero (Garnero Construction) and Clay Blundell (Blundcll Construction). "The great skill and care that they brought to the project is easily seen," according to the CSAIBB. "Builders, clients, and designer all enjoyed the cooperative spirit with which the home was built." Webb acknowledges being rather nervous about entering the competition, his first, and to being elated when winning the award. "The great skill and care that they brought to the project is easily seen" according to the CSAIBB. "Builders, clients, and designer all enjoyed the cooperative spirit with which the home was built." —California Society of American Institute of Building Design Home prices soared across U.S. in first quarter WASHINGTON (AP) — Home values rose in much of the Midwest, South and Pacific Northwest during the first quarter, but stagnated in many of the nation's coastal areas, according to a real estate trade group survey released today. For the second straight quarter, the Richland-Kennewick-Pasco market of Washington state led the nation in the price appreciation of previously owned single-family homes, the National Association of Realtors said. The Richland area had a 24.5 percent increase from the first quarter of 1992, to a median price of $96,400, following a 26.1 percent during the October-December quarter. The median means half of the homes cost more and half cost less. The Detroit area saw home values shoot up by 19 percent, to $92,200. That helped boost the median price in the Midwest by 7.8 percent, to $83,900. The South experienced a 2.7 percent increase, to $90,700, including a 10.2 percent advance in the Ft. Myers-Cape Coral, Fla., market, where the median price was $76,400. But the Realtors survey of 129 metropolitan areas found that home values were unchanged at $ 137,400 in the Northeast and actually fell 0.5 percent, to $142,200, in the West, where much of California remained mired in recession. The Realtors said many of the price increases occurred in less- expensive metropolitan areas where the lowest mortgage rates in two decades spurred buyer demand in the lower price ranges. "We are seeing more and more people buying starter homes," said William S. Chee, the Realtors president. Interest on fixed-rate, 30-year mortgages dropped from 8 percent to 7.5 percent between January and March, according to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. The Realtors said the cold, wet winter helped hold sales of previously owned homes to a 3.4 percent gain during the first quarter, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 3.92 million units. That was considerably below the 18.3 percent surge recorded during the same quarter last year. Sales in 1993 were up in 29 states and the District of Columbia, ranging from 25.7 percent in Hawaii to 0.1 percent in Texas. They fell in 18 others and were unchanged in two. Information was not available from two other states. If you have considered refinancing... or purchasing a new home... but, weren't sure you could afford it, it's time to call Allied Savings bank.
