Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: April 14, 2021

The weather is heating up, and we are all itching to get out and enjoy the sunshine. After a tough year of being cooped up in the house, we all could enjoy some outdoor activities this spring and summer. Luckily, Huntsville, Alabama doesn’t lack when it comes to outdoor places to explore and enjoy. Here are some of our favorite outdoor activities in Huntsville, Alabama.

Big Spring Park

Located in Downtown Huntsville, Big Spring Park is home to several events throughout the year. But even when there isn’t a big event happening, it is still a great place to visit on any given day. This park is actually what brought settlers to the area of Huntsville over 200 years ago. According to the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce, the red bridge and cherry blossom trees were given to the city by Japanese Major General Mikio Kimata as a thank you for the hospitality he received. The bridge and trees were formally adopted to the city in May of 1977. You can feed the friendly ducks, enjoy the walking paths or grab lunch somewhere nearby.

Huntsville Botanical Garden

This 112-acre garden is the perfect place to visit during the springtime, although it is open year round. Huntsville Botanical Garden hosts several events throughout the year for the entire family to enjoy, including a summer camp for kids and cooking classes and wine tastings. Take a stroll around the gardens and see for yourself what all the excitement is all about. The beauty is breathtaking.

The Trash Pandas baseball season kicks off spring 2021, and the community is more than excited. However, there are several different occasions for which you can visit Toyota Field.

Benefits of 3D Virtual Home Tours

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: March 30, 2021

With so many restrictions and precautions being put into place in 2020, it has become very difficult to do most of the things we enjoy. However, with more virtual options becoming available, you can get back to your normal life, safely. Legacy Homes wants to introduce you to 3D virtual home tours and all of the benefits. If you can’t tour your home in person, this is the next best option by far.

Simple to Set Up

To take a 3D virtual home tour of one of our model homes, just set up a Zoom call and take the tour live with an agent. These tours are designed to make you feel as if you were walking through the home yourself. If you’re out of town, or not in the area to view a home in person, just request a 3D virtual tour! It’s that simple. We do recommend that you visit in person sometime though, because being able to see, touch and feel your surroundings is a very important part of choosing the elements that go into your new Legacy Home.

Tour Anytime

When deciding on your new home, you usually try to tour it several times before making a final decision. Virtual home tours allow you to take a ‘walkthrough’ anytime, anywhere. If you live a busy life, or are looking into homes that are in another area, virtual tours are made for people like you! No more taking time off from work, or squeezing in time over the weekend. Tour from anywhere on your computer or mobile device.

Better Than Photos

How many times have we heard ‘photos don’t do it justice’? A lot. If you are relocating and can’t visit to tour your home, virtual tours are the way to go. You can’t get a real sense of the space with photos alone. With virtual tours, you can tour at your own pace and envision your life there. Figure out where you would place the couch, bed, television and any other furniture. You get a 360° view of the entire room, unlike in photos when you’re trying to figure out what door leads to where. View all of the aspects up close such as light fixtures, flooring, countertops and cabinetry.

Saves Time

By the time you find a home you love, you’ve probably toured quite a bit of houses. Virtual home tours save you the time and hassle of having to tour a home in person, only to find out it’s not the right fit for you. Unlike still photos, where you can’t get a complete picture of the home, 360° virtual home tours allow you to view and virtually walk through. This saves you the time of having to set up a tour and drive to the property to get the full sense of the space. Instead, you’ll be able to determine if the home is a right fit, or at least worth going to see in person.
