It is that time again. The 11th Annual Old Farm Garage Sale will be on Saturday
 June 7, 2014 from 8AM to 2 PM. All proceeds we receive will go to the
 Children's Hospital at Memorial Hospital. Last year we raised $1,064.00 for
 the Children's Hospital.

Sign up for only $20.00 (make your check payable to the Children's Hospital Colorado at
 Memorial Central) or we can take cash.

With your $20.00 donation you will receive advertising in the Gazette
 newspaper & Thrifty Nickel. The ad will be on Facebook & Craigslist too!

You will also receive an official participant package with garage sale tips,
 official participant sign & an organized Salvation Army pickup for unwanted
 items after the sale.

The items you are selling will also be placed into a handout directory. The
 directory will be given out the day of the garage sale at the entrance of Old
 Farm with a map & a list of the items you are selling.

Watch for your official invitation going out in the mail by mid May 2014.

Thank you for all of your past involvement & we would love to see you
 participate again this year!

Tired of all the negative talk about the economy? Now may be the best time ever to buy a home.

1. You can get a really good deal. This is definitely a buyer’s market. We are living out the biggest housing bust in history, and prices have fallen & most likely will continue to fall until we reach the bottom.
2. Mortgage rates are at an all time low as well. Right now you can get a 30 year mortgage loan rate for appx 4.3%. 2 years ago they were almost 2 points higher. The difference in the rate changes the payment by about 20%. If inflation goes up the you will most likely never see the rates this low again.
3. You can deduct the interest & save $$ on taxes. Mortgage interest & Real Estate Taxes are tax deductible.
4. It will be yours to do what you want with. You can do whatever you want with your own home such as additions, adding a sunroom or deck, changing the type of flooring & you can paint it any color you want. You don’t always get that when you rent.
5. You will get more house for the money. As home prices fall you get more house for the money. The same house today can cost thousands less that 2 years ago. Allowing for a better house or even in a nicer area.
6. Long term inflation protection. If you plan on staying in your house for the long haul, then owning a house might help beat inflation by a couple percentage points per year.
7. Capital Gains. Owning a home is not like owning a mutual fund. It isn’t a get rich quick scheme. Right now the Real Estate prices are in a downward pattern and are starting to stabilize. But the pendulum will swing and when prices start to go up then you will have gained equity in real value.
8. Forced savings. When you pay your home loan, part of the payment goes to the principal balance. When you sell your home you get that back.
9. Lots of available inventory. There is an abundance of available homes on the market to choose from. This really means you have a great choice as well as a great price. 
The Real Estate Market will survive. Demand & supply will eventually meet up with one another. As the population grows so does the number of homes needed.
