Marcus Hiles has always been a proponent of renters and homeowners installing the latest ENERGY STAR rated appliances. Since 1992, The Environmental Protection Agency’s voluntary ENERGY STAR program has influenced thousands of consumers, and reduced utility bills by more than $31 billion. Hiles noted that, compared to older equipment, ENERGY STAR rated equipment can reduce electric use by 50%.
Marcus Hiles explains that environmentally conscious construction, permeable paving, seemingly novel ideas, have been around for thousands of years, since the first time roads were made by putting stones in beds over the earth. The practice, which allows for rain to pass through four layer of filtration before being absorbed into the ground below, lowers runoff, pollution and controls the flow of storm water to gutters and drains.
With the gross domestic product (GDP) of USD 1,414 trillion, Texas is ahead of some of the worlds’ developed nations. As a sovereign country, it would be the world’s twelfth largest economy, by GDP. Leading property investor and developer Marcus Hiles chalks up the Lone Star state’s impressive economic portfolio to its effective policymaking strategies aimed to continually reduce government regulation and cut spending, as he calls on other states to follow Texas’ admirable example. “Over the course of past ten years, the government has created a highly favorable environment for businesses and individuals to thrive in Texas. “We have no corporate tax,” says Hiles, “and we are one of just a few states to tax no individual wage income.” Moreover, Hiles stresses that the Texas Legislature cuts spending growth each time over the course of its regular sessions.
Western Rim Property Services founder and CEO Marcus Hiles encourages Dallas tenants to get the most value out of their housing dollar by residing in communities that offer resort-like amenities. “There’s no need to feel suffocated in a boxy apartment complex when you can thrive in surroundings that reflect the lifestyle you envision,” he states. Hiles encourages area renters to emphasize finding a community with services and facilities that match their interests. Pet owners could discover complexes offering a private off-leash dog park, pet waste disposal areas, and nearby pet-sitting services, veterinarians, and groomers. “Families with children should find developments located in superior school districts, and that provide on-property parks, playgrounds, and activity areas,” Hiles notes. Similarly, avid golfers have the option of moving into communities that include nearby course privileges and views of the course from their balcony, while fitness buffs might select properties with state-of-the-art fitness centers, ready access to personal trainers, and jogging trails.
As the weather heats up, prominent Texas real estate developer Marcus Hiles has four simple tricks that will help apartment hunters and homebuyers dramatically lower their energy bills. As founder and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, Hiles is always to follow his own advice, and he employs these energy saving techniques in every apartment and home he develops. First off, he suggests installing windows with a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.22 to 0.24. A common example is the Cascade Low E Argon Gas Win Pro Series. Through heat transfer, windows installed in the 1980s often lose up to 100 times more energy of fully insulated solid walls around the home. “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 notes.
