As summer begins to heat up, Western Rim Property Services Chairman and CEO Marcus Hiles offers four simple tricks that will enable apartment hunters and homebuyers to dramatically lower their energy bills. As a renowned real estate developer, Hiles follows his own advice. He employs each energy saving technique in every residence he builds. The first tip is to use windows with a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.22 to 0.24, like the Cascade Low E Argon Gas Win Pro Series. Because of heat transfer, old windows from the 1980s lose up to 100 times the energy of a fully insulated solid wall. “While older casements, transoms, and sliders are beautiful, having the newest windows and frames prevents air and energy leakage, cutting your heat loss by 75 percent,” Hiles declares.
Lower costs, increased space, and amenities found in vacation resorts have redefined what it means to live in the suburbs. Since forming Western Rim Property Services in 1990, Marcus Hiles Fort Worth property developer has singlehandedly changed the state’s housing market; by delivering luxurious rentals in the most desirable locations, his company’s homes, townhomes and apartments offer unmatched premium conveniences at a remarkable value. While the exhilaration of city living may continue to draw house hunters to higher-priced urban options with less modern comforts, the expansive interiors, resort-like luxuries and on-site parks found in all of Hiles’ communities make a convincing and attractive case for moving a bit farther from the nearest metropolitan area’s core.
Marcus Hiles’ Fort Worth based company Western Rim upholds its reputation for creating high-end residences that offer unmatched value. With upscale homes, townhomes and apartments that meld state-of-the-art conveniences with on-site resort amenities, Hiles’ unique vision of attainable luxury for working class Texans remains as popular as when he founded the business in 1990. With ever-fluctuating trends in the U.S. housing market, one constant stays true: more and more people are renting each year. Hiles notes the changes in attitudes and demographics leading to the continued increase in rentership throughout the country.
