There are many advantages to home ownership, this home can give you access to those. Your payment could be less than renting. Part of your monthly payment can be written off your taxes. Most importantly you will own a piece of this earth, and there is only so much to go around. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, family room, kitchen, and large backyard, don’t miss the opportunity.

‘We chose this home because of it’s great location. It is surrounded by nature and yet still close to everything in town.’ The current owners of this 3 bedroom 2 bath home will miss the screened in porch which has a great view of the fenced back yard which is covered in azaleas, wisteria, clematis, and hosta. The current owners during their time living here have put on siding and a roof, replaced the field lines, installed a new HVAC package unit, and updated the kitchen floor and paint color schemes. The basement den has a brick wood burning fireplace and additional closet storage. Make sure to watch the video tour!

This home has been taken care of by two who became four! They have loved this home for many reasons: The hardwood floors are easy to clean up after messes, The large open floor plan is great for entertaining with adults and rushing to the aid of younger children, the bedrooms are big enough for two beds in each, and the master suite is a hide away after a long day. Don’t miss the opportunity to grow your family here too!

Predictions After our National Convention

Predictions for the remainder of 2011 as told to the Top 50 ERA Companies during the International Business Conference:  There will be continued negative articles coming from the news media through the first half of 2011.  The simple reason is the media mostly compares sales data month over year (i.e.: March 2010 compared to March 2011). The comparisons are artificially negative due to the first-time homeowner tax credit being in full swing.  Thus making 2011 numbers look bad, when in actuality the 2011 numbers have a stronger foundation without government incentive. All that happened was the tax credit pulled future buyers out prematurely.  Therefore, the second half of 2010 sales numbers were artificially low after the incentive ended April 28 2010.  In the second half of 2011 month over year comparisons will be very favorable due to no government incentives with a stronger base business.  In other words, July of 2010 will compare much weaker than July of 2011.  This will cause positive articles coming out of the media for the first time in years!  This will bring rising confidence and a much needed sense of urgency.  Due to positive press and rising confidence, the second half of 2011 sales are expected to significantly increase, paving the way for a real and sustainable housing recovery.
