Riverside County Housing Market Remains Strong

Riverside County CA Custom Home Builders - RBC ConstructionAccording to a recent LA Times article about the Southern California housing market, the number of homes for sale is up 25% compared to just one year ago. The Inland Empire, consisting of the area east of Los Angeles and including Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and portions of Eastern Los Angeles County, has seen a strengthening housing market in recent months.

The article cites an improved economy, increased consumer confidence, and potentially rising interest rates in the near future as reasons for the active Southern California market.

Some home buyers have been frustrated because homes tend to sell for at or above asking price within days or weeks of being listed on the market. This indicates that supply is not yet keeping up with demand in these areas.

“It’s like, ‘Everyone can go to Disneyland!’ But the lines are really long. So not everybody gets to ride.”

While we see some home builders building communities and single homes on spec, the market still isn’t where it was a decade ago when Riverside County custom home builders were taking large risks.

At RBC Construction, we’re happy that there is a lot of activity in our local market, but we’re not running out to build spec homes. We are focused on our specialty, which is designing and building custom homes specifically suited for homeowners who demand nothing but the best.

If you are looking to build in the Riverside County or San Bernardino County area, contact us to schedule a complimentary initial consultation and we’ll help you get started on the right foot.

The Vintage Club Continues to Gain in Popularity

Home Remodeling at the Vintage Club in Indian Wells CAPerfectly positioned at the base of Eisenhower Mountain, The Vintage Club in Indian Wells continues to solidify itself as one of the premier country clubs in California.

The 700 acre property is home to 2 distinctly designed golf courses, the Mountain Course and the Desert Course, a beautiful 85,000 square foot clubhouse, an 18,000 square foot fitness and wellness center, and nearly 500 private luxury residences.

Indian Wells is a hidden gem nestled in between Palm Desert and La Quinta, CA.

The residences range from condos that are valued at around $500,000 to custom luxury homes that range from $2 to $20 million. Although most of the homes are occupied, there are still a few remaining building lots available for discerning homeowners looking to become a part of the community.

Most of the residences are already built, but you can find complete listings of available homes on the Vintage Club Real Estate website. The website is very helpful, as it provides photos, maps, and detailed descriptions of each property.

For those home buyers looking to purchase a home at The Vintage Club and customize it to make it truly their own, RBC Construction can provide a complete design build solution to help you transform your vision into reality. All of our relationships begin with a complimentary consultation where we ask a lot of questions to learn about you, your lifestyle, and the goals you have for your newly renovated home. This information enables us to develop a concept and design that fit exactly what you are looking for.

Every project is different, and that’s exactly what we love. We don’t particularly enjoy working on tract house projects or standard layouts. We get excited about projects that are outside the norm and include features that are not common in home remodeling and custom home building. We want to expand our creative muscles with each new project we do, and we would love the opportunity to work with you on your next Vintage Club home remodeling project.

Ron Bierma Construction Rebrands as RBC Construction

Ron-Bierma-2Owner Ron Bierma recently rebranded his company from Ron Bierma Construction to RBC Construction. In addition the new name, we designed and built a completely new website with a new logo and new focus.

There were several reasons for the adjustment.

The first was a matter of differentiation. There are hundreds of General Contractors in the Southern California area and most of them simply do not make an effort to stand out from the crowd in such a way that enables them to generate new business on a consistent basis and grow their company. As our company matures, we want to make sure we have a strong position and strong name in the communities in which we work.

An additional reason for the rebrand runs deeper than the first. In our experience working on residential and commercial projects throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, we have seen inefficiencies in the design build process that cause projects to run over time and over budget, leaving the client less than satisfied. Further, we’ve learned that clients appreciate having a single source solution, a single point of contact, and an integrated design build process where all parties are aligned from Day 1.

Our Design Build Solution enables us to be flexible in working with clients in different ways, while providing them with the first class service that they demand.

We are excited about the next chapter of our company, as RBC Construction continues to grow and flex our creative muscles in both the residential and commercial communities.
