altoona iowa: Paulette Franklin Altoona Iowa - 12/26/10 07:45 AM
Someone that has given alot not only to the City of Altoona but, Dollars for Scholars. Paulette was very active in the Altoona Chamber for many years and as a matter of fact many of us thought of Paulette when you talked about the  Altoona Chamber.  Paulette gave many hours to our city and was always focused on making our community  better place.  While Paulette was part of the Chamber it grew into a great organization and still will go strong because of all she gave.  The community was very important to Paulette as was her family and friends.  She will be remembered by … (0 comments)

altoona iowa: So you think you want to build a Home? - 08/22/10 01:38 PM
 

If you are thinking of building a new home what things do you want in a home?
Sometimes it is many things as when more people live in a home more wants/needs may prevail.
Someone wants a large Kitchen with Granite counter tops and a walk in pantry while the other may say the three car garage and large deck are important to them and the Family room is important to both.
You need to do your homework and shop the open house's in the area's you are interested to see what would be resonable wants in your budget.

altoona iowa: What is important to the Buyer in this Economy? Green features in demand. - 05/31/10 10:16 AM
Goodbye, whirlpool tub, home theater and many other amenities.
The Recession seems to have pushed the Brake on some attitudes about what they want in their future homes and neighborhoods. This seems to be all economically driven and consistent with the times.
•1.     Although buyers are not looking for a lot of extras there are a few things that still seem important like Walking paths and Park areas.
•2.     Green is good -- and getting better. The increase in demand didn't surprise me as buyers like their home to be as green as they can afford.  The desire for environmentally friendly … (0 comments)
