Arkansas Trip

We just returned from a wonderful long weekend trip to Arkansas to surprise Dan's mom who was celebrating her 70th birthday with her brothers and their wives.

Bella Vista, in Northwest Arkansas, is a wonderful planned community. With 9 affordable golf courses, 12 tennis courts & all sports lakes, there is something for everyone. Better yet, the average home price is only about $125K!

Tired of McMansions?

According to a recent article in WallStreetJounal.com, many homeowners are opting for microhouses, particularly as second homes.

Other uses for mini homes are guesthouses, yoga rooms, personal sanctuary, or whatever the owner wants them to be.

Housing Bubble?

With all the talk about a housing bubble, I found the report The State of the Nation's Housing released by The Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard Univerity very interesting.

According to the report, "when and if house prices do fall, the so-called bubble is more likely to deflate slowly rather than burst suddenly."
