Normally we would suggest pre-owned homes with a home warranty. Reason - more home for the money and with a few updates you can have a great buy. We have been doing some checking and in St. Charles County it is a good time to take a look at New Contruction. - this time of year not many folks are looking at new construction. Their business starts really picking up in February. - great time to negotiate with fewer buyers - builders are offering incentives Taking all of these into consideration the price per square foot we've been finding has been (0 comments)

st charles real estate: St. Charles Parks - 03/25/08 12:29 PM
As I took my walk this morning, despite the overcast, I couldn't help thinking how lucky we are to have such great parks in St. Charles County. We were walking through Quail Ridge park with our two best pals a Gordon Setter, and a Samoyed. They just love the park especially since it is considered a Dog Park. When you drive to the back there is a special fenced in area where you can let your dog run provided he/she is friendly with the other dogs and plays well. There is also a 3 mile and 5 mile walking trail route. (0 comments)

As we grow our life styles may change. When we were a family of seven we needed lots of room in an area near schools, and other activities.
