Summer Time: The Perfect Season for Home Shopping!

Summer is the perfect season for camping, gardening, barbecues, and many other outdoor activities. It’s also the perfect season for buying a home. What better time to shop for a home when the weather is sunny and warm, the kids are out of school, and there is more time to spend together as a family? There is nothing worse than moving belongings in cold and rainy weather. That’s why moving is much easier in the summer as the weather conditions are more pleasant.

So, why take advantage of the current housing environment this summer? For one thing, historically low interest rates are making a home purchase more attractive. According to Moody’s Analytic, the 2011 ratio of home prices to income is approximately 21%, which is lower than the 15-year average through 2010. Those purchasing a home in the coming summer are likely to experience affordable interest rates on home loans, which can potentially reduce monthly costs or overall cost depending on the mortgage chosen for the home. What’s even more is that mortgage rates are lower than they have been in the last 50 years.

Given that these conditions are expected to change in the next few years you may want to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. At Alliance we encourage you to shop around.

Our agents at Alliance Manufactured Homes are very passionate and experienced in the field and can answer any questions you may have. We are not satisfied until our customers are satisfied – Why Compromise?

Happy Memorial Day!

Memorial Day—a day that commemorates United States soldiers who died while honoring, serving and fighting for our country. Observed this Monday, May 30th, it is a United States federal holiday. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, then it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day often marks the start of summer vacation season. Since it is an observed federal holiday, all federal buildings, libraries, public schools and banks are closed, a three day weekend many look forward to.

However, Alliance Manufactured Homes will be open to conveniently serve those that are interested in a New Home!  We will be holding many open houses throughout this weekend and as well as on Monday. We look forward to seeing you this Memorial Day Weekend!

Have a safe weekend from all of us at Alliance Manufactured Homes!
