“EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN” MEXICO!!

The 4th Annual Show House Santa Fe celebrates Old Mex & New Mex, a blend of regional and Old Mexico designs. The chosen historic east side home was part of the estate of the famous White Sisters in the 1920’s and 1930’s, daughters of a wealthy New York newspaperman.

This year’s Show House is located near El Delirio, the famous home of Martha Root White and Amelia Elizabeth White. This neighborhood was the heart of the Santa Fe artists’ and writers’ colonies during the first half of the last century. Renowned artist Raymond Jonson was one of the original art trailblazers who lived and worked inside the adobe walls of this amazing estate. He was part of The Transcendental Painting Group (1938-1942) co-founded along with Taos Painter Emil Bistram. Other noteworthy residents included German woodcut artist Gustave Baumann and poet Witter Bynner. The area includes the Amelia E. White Park, with a romantic arbor and roses, that Amelia White deeded to the city in 1966.

Real Estate and the Smart Home

Constellation Home Electronics offers many services for sellers, buyers, even real estate agencies and agents. As a seller, offering a Network Ready home can be a huge advantage. Constellation works closely with local internet providers to ensure, not only, that a property can get internet access but that the speeds and connectivity of the network are at peak performance. 

Modern home buyers are increasingly interested in connectivity. As a seller, you may be comfortable or complacent with a slow or nonexistent internet connection but your potential buyers may not be. Constellation can visit your home and test the network, once it is tested we will make recommendations to ensure any potential buyers that it could be upgraded for their needs. With a robust network homeowners can control many home systems including HVAC, security cameras, access, thermostats, and many other features. The growing popularity of connected homes means it is something to consider when buying or selling.

One of the most popular features homeowners are choosing to automate is the HVAC system. A simple and easy to use solution are Nest Learning Thermostats. Not only do they save an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills, the thermostat learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Nest can be controlled manually or remotely from an app. Constellation technicians are Nest installation certified, when we install the system you will get an extended warranty and we can configure it to use your network in the most efficient way.

As a buyer, seller, or professional, being aware of smart home technology can go a long way in making a successful transaction.
