The New Year Brings...New Things

After a very short time of publishing this blog, I have found a great alternative.  Thus, I will continue under the new format.  I do apologize for the delay.  It has taken a moment to get things set up.  However, I will be sure to let you know when I'm up and running again. 

Thanks for your support

First Monday

Welcome to a brand new year.  I hope that everyone had a chance to reflect over last year and make new plans for 2011.  I don't have a catchy phrase to share with you about this year.  But I do want to say again that it is still the best time to purchase real estate.  I have noticed over the last couple of months a lot of people have contacted me about purchasing. One gentleman shared with me that his friend closed on a $500,000 house for $282,000.  Yep you read that right.  It's insane right now.  So I would suggest that you take advantage of it.

Below is an excerpt from one of the free reports I have on my real estate website,  You can get the rest and much much more by visiting it.

Benefits Of Owning Your Own Home

There are many financial and personal reasons why you should own your own home rather than rent.  The obvious reasons include pride of ownership, building your own equity instead of someone else’s, no more landlords, and of course the tax benefits you reap.  There are a multitude of other reasons why owning your own home can make your life better.

One of the most overlooked reasons for owning a home is the freedom you get once you have achieved this major goal in life.  Many first-time homebuyers find that once they have bought a house, many other aspects of their personal life seem to fall in place.  The security and piece of mind that come with home ownership is a great accomplishment in many people’s lives, and once they have overcome the obstacles, they find that other goals they had set out to achieve become much easier to attain.

There is a great sense of belonging to the community once you own a home.  You begin to feel more attached to the city and its people.  You will find yourself more involved with community events - what is happening with the schools, roads and shopping centers in your area.  Some new homeowners find themselves getting into local politics in order to create better surroundings, which is something renters seldom do.

Home ownership is a strong anchor for your life.  (For the rest of the article, go to, Useful Information, Free Reports)
