The Challenge of Buyers A buyers' market should be just that -- a buyers' market. It's not a fence-sitting, waiting, loitering, delaying, dawdling, postponing, vacillating, hesitating, wavering, faltering, pausing, foot-shuffling market. It's a buyers' market. By its very name it means buyers should be doing one thing and one thing only -- buying. So where are the buyers, and why aren't they buying?   Heather A.

  This week may prove to be a truly historic one in our industry.  As we write to you, the Fix Housing First Act of the Senate's Economic Stimulus Bill is currently being debated. This Act includes a $15,000 tax credit for homebuyers that has already verbally been passed. Also on the table is a provision to lower 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rates down to 4-4.5 percent for eligible homebuyers.     Keller Williams Real Estate Heather Rickert601 Bethlehem PikeBuilding B, Suite 100Montgomeryville, PA 18936Main Office: 215-631-1900Direct: 215-850-9640 · Contact Form

Did you know? Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency On October 3, 2008, President Bush signed into law the "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008." This bill extended tax credits for energy efficient home improvements (windows, doors, roofs, insulation, HVAC, and non-solar water heaters). Tax credits for these residential products, which had expired at the end of 2007, will now be available for improvements made during 2009. However, improvements made during 2008 are not eligible for a tax credit. The bill also extended tax credits for solar energy systems and fuel cells to 2016. New tax credits were established for small wind energy systems and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Tax credits for builders of new energy efficient homes and tax deductions for owners and designers...

Hello World,        As the month of January comes crawling to a merciful end, signs of spring, although very faint give a reason for hope and optimism that "GREEN" is just around the corner. Listening to the chickadees in the morning and watching how playful and active they still are in the sub freezing temperatures is enough to give the biggest winter wimp a mountain of hope. Not that I am a winter wimp but after the new year I certainly do look forward to spring and everything that comes along with it. Yesterday as I was driving home to my own home in Arrowhead Lakes I drove by what initially looked like a small turkey but I knew it wasn't. I stopped my truck and slowly backed up and there it was, a magnificent hawk with a wing span of nearly three feet slowly flapping as it slowly to...

Arrowhead Lakes Community is made up of 2 Large Clean Lakes. Big Arrowhead Lake is 260 Acres and the small lake is 90 Acres. There are 4 beaches situated around the two lakes. Each beach has BBQ facilities, playgrounds and sandy beaches for all day enjoyment. The lakes are pristine because no gasoline engines are allowed on them. You may use 'man power' or a simple electric trolling motor for fishing. The lakes are stocked for trout season every year but you can find an assortment of native fish in these lakes! The community also offers 3 heated swimming pools, 7 tennis courts (3 are lighted), 2 basketball courts, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, exercise room, billiards room, Clubhouse and soon to be New Community Lodge right on the Big Lake! To go along with these wonderful amenitie...
