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.

Clark County Washington is an amazing community! Surrounded by rivers, both large and small, lakes, hills, valleys, canyons, some of the most impressive rapids and kayak water in the Pacific Northwest, and so much more.

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, Mt. Hood. 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.

15 minutes away from major stage plays, music events, Jazz Festivals, a 4th of July Fireworks display that is the biggest West of the Mississippi River! Indoors or out, there is so much to choose from in this incredible spot on the West edge of the US. If you live in the area already…GREAT CHOICE! 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!

house2FAQ’s and a place for you to ask YOUR Specific Questions

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

A: Each home has a very specific value, impacted by surrounding area, quality of nearby schools, easy access to conveniences/services, quick and safe commutes, public transportation availability, and so much more.  The general market does appear to be strengthening a bit early in 2012, and the low purchase prices and historically low interest rates make this an INCREDIBLE time to consider purchasing real property.  As a result, the market is showing more buying activity than in the recent past, to be sure.

Q:  Everyone is telling me that I should be investing in real estate right now, but I’m not sure the housing prices aren’t still going down.  Is it “safe” to considering investing now?

A:  There’s absolutely no “chrystal ball” for the economy, but there are two things we can say for sure right now…

1.) Interest rates for mortgage loans haven’t been this low for years and years.  We won’t see rates this low again for a long time!
2.) Housing prices have fallen and fair market rents have risen to the point that it makes very good sense to consider investing in income properties!  Every investment calls for wisdom and first obtaining accurate market information, but generally speaking, this is an incredible property buying opportunity!
