Are Model Homes Still Important?

As a builder you may be asking yourself, are model homes still an important tool in selling your communities? In a word, yes. Read more on why the model home remains relevant and an important sales tool.

Fall, COVID, and Design Trends

When we think of Fall we often think of earth tones and creating cozy spaces. This is true every year, but perhaps even more these days. COVID has changed so many things in our lives especially what buyers want and need in their homes. Top among home buyer expectations is the trend for multi-functional spaces that help foster a sense of wellbeing. Read how we are incorporating these trends into our designs to meet the needs of the buyers.

Lessons from Legends

We talk to the legendary Lisa Parrish in this installment of our series, Lessons from Legends. One simply has to say, “housing awards” and immediately Lisa and her family come to mind. What started out as an idea to boost the LA-area housing industry has turned into a multimillion dollar enterprise, a multistate phenomenon, and a multigenerational business. Read how it all happened.

In this latest episode of our video series, “Design Minute with LD & Co” you can listen in as Lita and Kelly discuss the importance of creating a favorable impression as soon as a potential buyer enters the model home. It’s a teachable moment where we can be a fly on the wall.

These Design Minute videos are short, informative sound bites with various members of the LD & Co design team. Our goal is to share interior design tips, model merchandising ideas, ways to improve the designer/builder relationship, and even some behind the scenes stories. New videos are released periodically so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel  and you’ll never miss a new release!

Our design team has been quite busy of late. We can’t wait to share the professional photos of this install when they are available. In the meantime, please enjoy this short video showing our designers hard at work taking a multifamily amenity space design from concept to reality in Colorado.


From all of us at LD & Co…
