As we begin another year, everyone wants to know: “Where is the housing market headed in 2019?"
We are so excited to share that Rush Residential was recently awarded 2018 Builder Of The Year by MBA Pierce! The Builder Of The Year Award is based on membership voting and nominations. Additional criteria are specific to each award and Builder Of The Year nominees must be Builder Members. All nominees are submitted by other MBA members and then the Awards Committee selects a winner. Rush was up against 5 other incredible home builders, and we are honored to have been recognized among them! “What an honor it is to be recognized by our peers in the industry. We are grateful to our customers, suppliers, and partners who all work together with a common goal of helping create exceptional homes - while enabling others to achieve the American Dream of home-ownership," said Rush Residential Vice President Scott Walker. "To be selected as Builder of the Year for Pierce County is a testament to what we stand for. Our company vision is ‘Building an Exceptional Future, Together.’ It applies to all we do, and for that, we are proud and humbled that we were selected for this award and achievement.” Walker joined the Rush Residential team in 2011 and has led the division in the creation of dozens of outstanding residential communities. He has also led the Rush Residential team in our best year yet—in 2018 we oversaw the creation of 5 communities and welcomed 69 families into their beautiful new homes.
It’s a common misconception that you shouldn’t try to buy or sell a home during the fall and winter months.

The kitchen unlocks the value of a home and is the showpiece of most homes. “The ultimate design statement of the home starts in the kitchen,” said Dallas-based interior designer Denise MaGaha at the 2018 National Kitchen & Bath Industry Show. At this prestigious kitchen design event, MaGaha reinforced this concept, “With the trend toward open-floor plans, the kitchen sets the stage for all the other design decisions in the home.” (See the full Kitchen & Bath Industry round up on how to "Design The Kitchen of the Future" from Forbes Magazine here)
The Bathroom is one of the most central aspects of a home. Not only does the bathroom set the tone for a house, but it's where you start and finish each day. According to designer and architect Bill Hirsch, "Bathrooms, especially master bathrooms, have become far more than the simple, utilitarian room they once were. They have evolved from the simple, white tiled, sanitized spaces into personal retreats and at home spas."
