3% Down Payment?

By December 8, 2014 @ 4:31 pm

3% down payments are back!  In order to help low-income and first time home buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will begin backing these types of loans.  What do you think? Do you think this will set up the coming of another housing bubble or have borrowers learned not to borrow more than they can pay for? Would love to hear your thoughts and comments! If you are a first time home buyer and would like to learn more contact me!fannie-mae-freddie-mac

Fun Finds on Tour!

By December 5, 2014 @ 12:47 pm

When we are out touring the homes for sale not only do we get information to better serve our clients, we also get some fun inventive ideas on how to decorate your house or backyard! For example we saw this tricycle hanging on the wall recently and we absolutely loved the idea! What a great way to be able to keep memories from your  childhood and to showcase them on the wall – giving you a sense of nostalgia every time you see it!  Next time you are doing Spring cleaning you might not have to throw away or donate so many things – you might be able to find a way to showcase them without cluttering your home!

Who doesn’t love a good kitchen!

By December 3, 2014 @ 3:00 pm

Krista and Rosie love a good kitchen!  Each time they go into a house they always check out the kitchen. Big, little, comfy, white, bright?  What would you add to your dream kitchen? A cool chalkboard wall to write menus? How about  built-in wine storage?  There are so many ways you can create the kitchen of your dreams! Here are some of their favorites on Krista’s Pinterest page. Kitchen
