WHY Buy Now?

Right now housing prices are the lowest they have been in years, however we don’t know when the prices will start to rise again. Waiting on the prices to fall further may not be the best strategy either since “the government has proposed a tightening of lending standards called Quality Residential Mortgage (QRM)”. If the QRM is passed it will make the loan qualification process more difficult as well as cause an increase in loan costs.


With housing prices and interest rates falling, right now owning is cheaper than renting in 80% of markets. Wouldn’t you rather buy a home and build equity than throw away your money month after month on rent?


30-Year Mortgage Rates are at ALL TIME LOWS!

A conventional mortgage on a $250,000 home at a rate of 6.5% vs. 4.5% (today) would cost you over $250.00 per month more! This adds up to almost $90,000.00 in additional interest costs over the life of the loan! Can you afford to lose out on this opportunity?


Home values are... kind of irrelevant?

That's right, whether values are historically high or historically low, everyone is on a level playing field. For most of our customers, the possibility of receiving a lower than expected price for their existing residence is more than offset by the lower price they are receiving on their new home from a Builder. Subcontractors and suppliers are very hungry for business and are slashing the input costs for new construction allowing Builders to price homes aggressively low. Guess what? THIS WON'T LAST!



Which investment would you choose? If you're like most people, the choice isn't whether or not you are going to own a home, it's whether you keep investing in your existing residence or invest in a new one. Which investment is more likely to appreciate-your current older home or a home freshly designed and built to be relevant for today's and tomorrow's buyer? After all, while you wait for the market to recover, wouldn't you rather be waiting in a new maintenance-free home, customized to your taste and style rather than wondering if your lawnmower is going to start this spring? Sometimes "playing it safe" isn't very safe at all.


Buy Low, Sell High

It's the first rule of investing. Home purchases are not meant to be short-term investments and smart buyers know that waiting for a stronger market means paying higher prices. You've heard the news that new housing starts have been falling for the past two years. This means the supply is rapidly decreasing. This also means that when the demand returns to normal levels and new homes are in short supply, prices will undoubtedly skyrocket-it's Economics 101! Don't lose out your chance to invest near the bottom!


Experience the difference!

Builders are rolling out the red carpet for their customers these days. The Customer is King, now more than ever before. Custom changes-no problem! Don't miss out on the chance to have a great buying experience with a customer focused builder before they get too busy to go that extra mile!


Quality Counts

Homes built in slower housing markets are constructed with more care and by more highly talented craftsman. A lot was overlooked in the old days of "How fast can we build?"-not on purpose of course, but at the break-neck pace of a few years ago, builders just didn't have the time to be picky. Now builders are able to be a lot more "hands on" and make sure proper attention is paid to the details. Additionally, a lighter workload for subcontractors means that employers have retained only their best tradesman, which in effect “weeds out" the amateurs-AND THE DIFFERENCE SHOWS.


Made in the U.S.A!

With the housing industry comprising 1/5 of America's GDP, it's no wonder the economy is struggling.  Most Americans feel a patriotic draw toward buying American made products, but does it really make a difference? Think about this-virtually ALL of the dollars spent building and buying a new home stay in your local community. Now that's what I call a stimulus package (where it counts)! JFK said it best, "Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country." Simply put, those who wait on the sidelines are continuing to compound the problem, but those who CAN afford to purchase a car or a home during a time of recession and actually DO IT are true Patriots and should be applauded.
