Wow, it has been a great couple of weeks. Unfortunately I have not had an opportunity to blog. So many things to blog about though.
I have been working with first time home buyers (www.louisvillefirsttimebuyer.com) and it has been very time consuming. There is so much out there for buyers, I have been checking all the listings twice to make sure my buyers are seeing everything in their price range and areas. There are still great programs out there for just about every income level. If you are looking to jump in, make sure you at least have your FHA 3.5% down payment. The days of zero money down are over. Does that mean that you can't buy a house with no money out of pocket? Not really, but we can talk about that one on one.
The other exciting thing for me is ecological sustainability and my business; the green aspect of building and remodeling. I feel strongly that we have to address several issues with home owners and particularly first time home buyers. Making sure their homes are as energy efficient as possible, that water used responsibly and that they are doing all they can to promote healthy interior air quality.
Some of these issues are seen and high dollar items to address. The move toward more integrated and sustainable products has brought down some of the costs and more people should be looking at these as upgrades like they would a new deck or room addition.
i will continue to fill my website with links to sustainable forums and pages with information for upgrading your current home or building sustainably. Sign out guest book and tell me what interests you in sustainable living.
