Top Reasons for Buying A Home In Bucks County
I read Karl E. Case's op-ed piece in the NY Times yesterday, "A Dream Home After All".  For those of you who don't follow real estate regularly Case is one half of Case & Shiller Index which is a comprehensive home price index for the US going back many years.  The article discusses whether, or not the American Dream is dead, and it got me thinking what does the American Dream mean to each one of us?  I'm sure it's not the same for everyone, but I do believe that owning a home … (0 comments)

real estate: A Good Lesson from the Securities Markets - 01/07/10 08:40 AM
 
How you can add value to your home with improvements?
For some, the question they might have asked themselves is "Why would I invest more money into my home, when it has dropped in value?"
That‟s a fair enough question, and the answer goes beyond the simple fact that home improvement is affordable right now.
A recent article in USA Today reported that the Vanguard group, one of the nation‟s largest providers of retirement plans, determined that about 60 percent of 401k plan contributors have more money in their plans than they did in September 2007, when the markets crashed.

real estate: Shopping for a Mortgage Should Get Easier - 01/05/10 03:15 PM
With the arrival of a new year also came a new way to compare home loans.
 
On January 1, new rules went into effect, which mandate that all home loan applicants be given a new version of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's "Good Faith Estimate" form.
 
The new form is designed to clarify what home loans will actually cost, which should make it easier for borrowers to compare home loans. All lenders must disclose their fees and put them in the same places on the form.
 
In addition to interest rates, there are other costs associated … (0 comments)

So the most recent mailing dealt with ROI (return on investment) on your investment properties in Council Rock, or Pennsbury.  When I first got into real estate I took a course that really changed my life and the way I viewed my goals that class was called Creating Wealth in Real Estate.  A big focus of this group (all Real Estate Agents) was how do you decide which investment is the best one for you.  Many of the agents in the class had been investing for years, but I was a rookie with no clue.  Still, I was surprised as to … (0 comments)
