The CRG Construction Team is in the process of building a raised lo-country home custom designed by the CRG Design Team. The entire plan contains the client's favorite elements of three different floor plans. Our architectural designer, Kadin Karschner, had to design around ARB guidelines with the living area underneath that essentially makes this a two story home, though the majority of the "first floor" consists of a large garage.

Swimming pools can offer great opportunities by adding value to your home and improving your lifestyle. One of the current trends is adding a custom designed pool to your home design. Before you start researching the many different styles, here are the three most common types of pools:

With the end of the government shutdown, real estate professionals were left to wonder, “How did this affect the market?”

The good news is that it did not have a detrimental effect on the overall market. However, the National Association of Home Builders did report that new construction, single-family homes came down two points in October. The loans that were most affected, as predicted, were FHA and USDA loans. Approvals were paused for many, but have relatively returned to normal. 

“A spike in mortgage interest rates, along with the paralysis in Washington that led to the government shutdown and uncertainty regarding the nation’s debt limit, have caused builders and consumers to take pause,” NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe said.

Are you worried about how this government shutdown will affect the residential real estate market? Here’s a brief synopsis:

If you are financing your home purchase with a non-government guaranteed loan, you can rest assured. Your home buying process will NOT be affected.

If you are purchasing a home with a VA or FHA loan, you may be stressing out right about now. More than likely, you have nothing to worry about. Most larger lenders will continue to approve loans backed by the FHA or VA without immediate government approval. Depending on your type of loan, the process may just take a little bit longer.
