Image_2_300_by_200Some Call it “Retirement” – You Call it “Our Second Home”

Here’s a delicious thought for you…

You have now, or will soon own a beautiful home in your current community.  Career’s are going pretty well considering the economy, and every once in awhile, you escape to that special spot you love so much at the Coast.  You’d love to escape more often, but hotel reservations, meals out, not having the things you always end up needing once you arrive… it’s kind of expensive to get away!

There is a better way…

Why not meet with one of the Equity Team Members today and put together a plan to find a great Second Home hideaway while property prices and loan interest rates are so amazingly low? Remember, Your Equity Team offers real estate planning & services, sure, but also Property Management, Lease Purchase, and Investment real estate service as well!

Whether you start out with that second “dream home”, a recreational hideaway, or full time Retirement living, you’ll receive great information, tips, and planning as well as professional service with your Equity service specialist.  Give us a call, or click here to arrange a meeting, soon.

Image_3_300_by_200 What to do in Vancouver and Portland:

Clark County, Washington is an amazing community: it is surrounded by rivers, lakes, hills, valleys, canyons, and some of the most impressive rapids and kayak water in the Pacific Northwest. Since 2000 alone, Clark County’s population has grown by 30.9%.

Vancouver is located only two hours from the Pacific Ocean. In the opposite direction, only an hour and a half to one of the most majestic mountains in the United States, is Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood is home to Mount Hood Meadows, one of the largest ski resorts in Oregon. From there, you’re only two hours from what used to be a huge and truly stunning mountain that is now “Half the Mountain” it used to be, Mt. St. Helens, the site for one of the largest volcanic eruptions of the 20th Century.

Sports, Arts, Crafts, Farmer’s Markets, Antique Shows, Camas Days, Hazel Dell Parade, Ft. Vancouver Historical Center, The Oldest Apple Tree in the State, tons of parks and sports fields, crazy soccer fans, even crazier Oregon side Basketball fans (Go Blazers!), and more.
If you don’t live here yet, call the Equity Team for a Relocation Packet. We’ll be very glad to have you as our new neighbors!

Q:  Is the Real Estate market still gaining ground, or will my house start dropping in value anytime soon?
