Festive Food!

This time of year often means getting together with friends and family. When you own a new home, often you become the host as curious well-wishers are excited to get a peek!

Take some of the stress out of hosting by serving some of these easy holiday appetizers! Then enjoy celebrating the season in your brand new home!

Organize your cheese tray into the shape of a Christmas tree!

Make a grinch out of grapes, strawberries, bananas and a marshmallow!

Fill up bread bowls with spinach dip and use Rye bread to form the hat!

Don't forget to invite Santa to the party! Use ricotta cheese, crackers, capers, pepperoni and celery to form the jolly old St. Nick!

Now Is The Time!

The Commerce Department released the new home sales figures for October this week and the numbers look great!

New home sales increased by 25.4% over September - the highest level in 6 months!

Interest rates remain at historic lows and the pent up demand for housing means homes are moving faster. Nationwide the new home supply level is at a little less than 5 months.

The South experienced the largest gains with a 40% increase in new home sales.

Interest rates are expected to rise slowly as the economy improves so now is the time to buy!
