Have You Been To The Abington Arts Center?

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

Good morning! We've found there are many people who live in Abington who have never been to the Abington Arts Center- in fact many people don't even know it exists!

The 'Old York Road Art Guild' was founded in 1939 and currently offers exhibits, classes, events and facility rentals.

Perhaps you and your family can check it out on a rainy day this summer! For more information, go to their website: http://abingtonartcenter.org/

Your $8000 Credit Is About To Go Poof!

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

On April 30, 2010, the $8,000 Federal Tax Credit disappears … FOREVER!

Add to that the fact that interest rates are going to start creeping up, and you’ve got an even stronger reason to put an offer on a home now.

If you’re contemplating buying a home before the end of the summer, then you should consider making today the day!

Here are 5 reasons why:

•Interest rates are low, but if they go up even 1%, Your buying power is cut by 10%!

•$8,000 Tax Credit…(F.R.E.E. money speaks for Itself)

• We have the largest selection of homes at the best prices available in the last 70 years.

• Real estate is a great investment (it even out-paced the stock market in the last decade)

• A house is a home first and an investment second.  Don’t delay your enjoyment of life. It could cost you more than just the
money you’re investing.

If you’d like a list of all the HOTTEST deals in any price range and any area, contact me now at 215-576-8666.

When we get to speak, I can also go over how to save you thousands of dollars when you buy your next home.

Again, call me before the Tax Credit goes away for good.
