American Housing Ventures Announces "Live Right;" Redefines Rental Living Lifestyle

New Communities Offer Single-Family, Energy-Efficient Homes With Luxury Amenities and On-Site Services

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- American Housing Ventures (AHV) today unveiled LIVE RIGHTsm, a new concept in rental living that combines the benefits of a single-family home with the luxurious amenities and social benefits typically associated with high-end apartment communities. LIVE RIGHT communities feature high-quality, energy-efficient single-family homes and all the first-class services of a traditional Class "A" multifamily property.

"LIVE RIGHT is designed to provide residents with the best of both worlds -- the ability to live in a brand new, spacious single-family detached home and the opportunity to enjoy the plush amenities, hassle-free maintenance and community perks typically associated with living in a luxury apartment community," said Mark Wolf, CEO of American Housing Ventures. "People no longer have to worry about saving for an expensive down payment in order to live the American Dream. We are offering a slice of Americana without the long-term commitment or expensive homeownership costs for similar rents as apartments."

AHV is currently developing 1,000 homes in San Antonio and Austin, Texas. A third community is being finalized, and the company has plans for expansion in primary markets across the Sun Belt.

Energy-Efficient Homes in Amenity- Rich Communities Maintained by Professional Staff

Residents will enjoy energy-efficient, single-family detached homes that offer privacy (no common walls), two-car garages, front and back yards and large square footage in a community with first-class amenities such as a clubhouse, resort-style pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, children's playground, dog park, walking trails and plenty of open/green space.

Each home will come standard with high-end features such as granite kitchen countertops, designer-selected flooring and European full-access cabinetry -- all of which are normally considered upgrades. In addition, each home will incorporate many energy-efficient features that drive down monthly energy bills, such as tankless water heaters, LED lighting, radiant barrier roof sheathing, cased dual-pane, low-e windows and high SEER rated central heating and air conditioning units, along with new ENERGY STAR® appliances.

"Our value proposition to prospective residents is simple: why rent a cramped apartment with people below or above you, when you can rent your own home with first-class amenities at similar rental rates?" said Spencer Rinker, partner at American Housing Ventures. "In addition to a better lifestyle, residents will benefit economically from the cost savings which result from the extensive green-features built into every home."

LIVE RIGHT offers residents the opportunity to live the "American Dream," but without the long-term commitment or expensive costs typically associated with homeownership. To ensure a first-rate living environment, every LIVE RIGHT community will be fully managed and operated by an on-site staff including maintenance support and quality control professionals.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management.

Service providers will w...

Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production?

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.

But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
