Homes For Heroes Program at Roers

Have you heard of our Homes for Heroes program? Homes for Heroes is a special program designated to provide our local heroes a benefit when they purchase a home.

This program is for Firefighters/EMS, Law Enforcement, Military (active, reserves and veterans), Healthcare Professionals and Teachers. On average, heroes are able to save over $2,400 when they buy, sell or refinance a home using this program. Roers Real Estate is happy to offer this incredible program.

Whether buying or selling,  those who qualify will have the chance to receive a Hero Rewards Check (amount varies, depending on purchase price). Once this check has been received, the recipient is welcome to use it toward whatever you would like. 

Want to hear the best part about Homes for Heroes? Every time a hero uses this program, they help other heroes in need. A portion of Homes for Heroes earnings is donated to the Homes for Heroes Foundation. This is a non-profit organization which awards Hero Grants to local nonprofit charities serving heroes in need.

“Buying a home is a big deal and you should make sure you have an agent who is going to work for you and understand your wants and needs,” commented Anne Kallhoff, Realtor with Roers Real Estate.  “Homes for Heroes is a great program Roers is able to take part in and help our Heroes through the buying and selling process but also helping them save money.”

If you are interested in this program or have real estate questions, please contact Anne Kallhoff akallhoff@roers.com

The View On University Apartments Clubhouse: Escape the Day to Day

By: Christen Joy

The View is in full construction mode, and I am here to give you a sneak peek into one of our first common spaces The Clubhouse.  

THE SPACE

You walk into The Clubhouse on the 5th floor and are greeted by impossible to ignore large windows that feel like a big city high rise. The spectacular views are hard to beat. After the stunning views you’ll notice your surroundings when your eye is drawn to pops of intentional colors balanced with walls shiplapped to high vaulted ceiling and gorgeous hardwood-inspired floors in a perfect shade to balance any color.

The Clubhouse features a kitchen area that is home to an oversized custom island lined with comfortable stools and a brass foot rail for relaxed comfort. A cook top and an oven are ready for cooking classes or hosting friends. The beverage fridge is the perfect size to store items as you prep. The space comes to life with larger-than-life artwork that’s full of personality, joy, and laughter.

As you gaze over, you’ll see ample seating with a bench over 20’ long layered in comfortable pillows with three large tables eager for you to join. Push the tables together for a large gathering or keep them separate for personalized groups. Either way – you have space to host any event you want. Plus, your guests won’t stop raving about the views, the vibe and the warmth in this space – it’s absolutely stunning framed in beautiful dark brass. Picture perfect!

Of course, you don’t need to entertain to enjoy this space. You can flop down on the large sectional or cozy swivels. The TV is there to watch and the double-sided fireplace is ready to be lit. The cherry on top in this space? I can’t decide if it’s the stair-stepped custom fireplace surround or the 48” chandelier 

Be warned however, someone may challenge you to a game if you sit too close to the wall-mounted scrabble board. The 5-foot wide by 4-foot-tall board could have you itching to school your friends with your mad spelling bee skills. Not your thing? Head to the shuffleboard or ping pong table. You’re sure to find a way to connect with your community at The View On University.

THE CLUBHOUSE SUMMARY

  • Located on the 5th Floor adjacent to The Three Seasons
  • Open year-round
  • Fireplace
  • Pool table
  • Multiple areas to sit with groups or to relax alone

We hope you enjoyed seeing the look and feel of The Clubhouse and all it will offer for residents at The View On University. In my next post, we will be previewing the common spaces of The Rooftop.

Till Next Time, 

Christen Joy

Checking in on the Sheyenne Senior Housing Project

The Sheyenne Senior Housing project in West Fargo, ND, is making a great addition of needed senior housing in Cass County. We visited with both Dalton Olson, Roers Project Manager, and Derek Johnson, Deputy Director of Housing Authority of Cass County to get the latest scoop on how the project is coming along. The project is on track to open in June of 2021.

Here are some updates from Dalton:

Q – How many units per phase?

A – Two Buildings Monterey and Brighton Place. Monterey has 40 and Brighton has 45.

Q – What is a highlight so far on this project?

A – A highlight of working on this project has been seeing how exciting the owners and developers are when walking through the buildings, Each other week we have a walk through where they are expressing how excited they are to have this be their new home.

Q – What kind of amenities will a resident receive while living here?

A – Some amenities will be: heated ground level parking, two Community rooms, two elevators, wellness and exercise room.

Next, we met up with Derek to provide perspective from the Housing Authority of Cass County:

Q – Some of the common areas are the community room and the community entertainment room. How do you go about keeping the seniors safe (COVID-19) in those areas?

A – We are constantly monitoring a variety of local, state, and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19 and will make decisions about use of these common areas based on guidelines at that time. We have a number of gathering areas throughout the building that are well-ventilated and allow for social distancing.

Q – What will this project mean for housing for seniors?

A – For seniors living primarily on Social Security, the financial impact will be immense. Residents will pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent, and the remainder is subsidized by the Housing Authority through the Section 8 program.

Q – Can you talk about the partnership thus far with Roers and the Housing Authority of Cass County?

A – Roers has been great to work with through the process. The management team is responsive to our inquiries and provides great updates and communication to us regarding the progress.
