Builder Magazine Lists Top Housing Markets - 02/22/09 08:32 AM
In yet another positive story, Builder Magazine outline the healthiest new housing markets last year. Not suprisingly The Carolinas and Texas fared very well. Here is how it was done: "(We analyzed) 75 housing markets in the country. We ranked them based on population trends and job growth, perennial drivers of housing demand. We also examined what's happened with home prices; many of the healthiest markets have managed to hold the line on home values. And finally, we considered the rate building permits, which may be the single best ongoing indicator of builder confidence in a market. We combined all these (2 comments)
About The Classic Courtyard Collection - 02/22/09 07:40 AM
With all the interest in our new classic courtyard collection, I thought it would be interesting to share information from Epcon as to why they created these new plans we will be offering at Peach Grove Villas (http://www.PeachGroveVillas.com) The research Epcon Communities sought out several design firms to create the lifestyle rich homes that the company envisioned, giving specific guidelines such as price range, square footage, outdoor living space options and aesthetic appeal.

The Epcon Community in Norteast Columbia, SC (Peach Grove Villas) will be offering Epcon's latest design, The Courtyard Collection.

The return of baseball; the start of housing season! - 02/14/09 05:46 AM
No matter where you live today, if you are a fan of baseball you see the green grass of Florida; feel the warm air of a spring day and realize it is time for baseball. Today (and for the next 45 days) all teams are equal. Everyone is tied for first with an equal chance for glory. Today is the day where salaries and steroids don't matter. Today is the day where young players start that push to make the team and veterans try to recapture old forms. Baseball is a microcosm of life. Born and reborn; death and decay and (4 comments)
Don’t Buy Now! – Aren’t you watching TV? --What Savvy Homebuyers Know That Makes Them Take Action Now! - 02/12/09 08:56 PM
Haven't you heard our nation is suffering from a financial crisis? Haven't you heard about all of the turmoil on Wall Street? How could you not? The 24-hour news channels are thriving on all of this doom and gloom-and their ratings have never been higher. It's no secret that the economy could be much better; however, recessions are the natural growing pains of a strong nation. Historically they have occurred about every 50 months almost like clockwork-but we always rebound stronger than we were before! It might seem odd to some that we've been so busy in the sales (3 comments)
