Celebrating 50 Years of Earth Day!

Did you know that April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day?  As we adapt to the restrictions of social distancing, one thing we can celebrate is our shrinking carbon footprint. During this newfound journey, we are here to serve our clients today and tomorrow building energy-efficient homes designed to soak in natural light and ventilation. Modular construction maximizes the use of building materials and utilizes waste to energy practices which means far less waste in landfills.  A tighter building envelope combined with the insulation package we include in each home means greater energy efficiency and savings for the homeowner. Our homes are better for the families living in them and for our environment. What are some easy ways to reduce that carbon footprint even more?  Continue to reduce and consolidate trips to the store. Pick up needed items for neighbors and alternate trips to the store with friends. Wash and carry your own reusable shopping bags a

Renter's Net Worth 36 Times Less than Homeowner's

Homeownership remains a great way to grow wealth in America. This may not seem possible, especially with the crash of the housing market, but The Federal Reserve states that homeowner's have a much higher net worth than renters. Again, this may seem shocking when reflecting on the housing market of the past decade.

The Federal Reserve reports that the average renter has a net worth of $5,400, while the average homeowner is valued at $194,500. Crazy difference, right? This means that a homeowner's net worth is over 36 times greater than that of a renter! In addition, the average American family stands for a net worth of $81,200, while $49,856 of the whole represents home equity. That's 61.4% of the average American family's net worth - a generous chunk.

Long story short, investing in real estate is still an opportune way for individuals and families to become more financially sound.
