Interest rates are going up ever so slightly, but going up just the same. We are in a market where historically everything is set just for you to make a home purchase.  With the huge inventory to choose from, motivated sellers, a multitude of distressed properties priced under market and low interest rates - what are you waiting for?  Looking to invest in a rental and have the renters make your payments? Thinking of finally buying that lake cabin you have always wanted? Think fast!

                                  The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.      -Winston Churchill                  The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.     -Mark  Twain                         The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.    -Herbert Spencer, English  Philosopher (1820-1903)                There is no distinctly Native American criminal class...save Congress.   -Mark  Twain                                     What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.     -Edward Langley,  Artist (1928 -  1995)                                  A government big enough...

 To create drama and dress up any room, consider adding touches of black.
