Open Doors & Missed Opportunities

During a person’s lifetime, open doors of opportunity are sometimes missed. When a door does open, one must be ready to reach out and grab onto that opportunity while it presents itself.

I think you will agree that each of us has missed at least one golden opportunity in our lifetime because we feared the unknown of what might be beyond that open door. Sometimes, it is fear of the unknown that keeps us from reaching our true potential as individuals regarding our personal growth and our financial growth.

Right now the dream of owning your own home has never been better. Interest rates are truly at historic lows and the housing market has never been better. At American Housing Builders, Inc., it is our desire to assist you through that open door so that you and your family can achieve the American dream of owning your own home.

As you know, when a door of opportunity does open, it does not remain open for long. At some point, this opportunity in the new home housing market will close and that door may be closed for good. Those who have the courage to walk through that open door will reap the benefits, while those who are fearful or skeptical will always wish they had had the resolution to walk through that door when it was open and will be wishing they had not missed that golden opportunity of fulfilling their dream of owning their own home.

Well, that dream can still come true and we are here to help you make it happen. You can contact us at 727-546-6611, or stop in at 6580 72 Ave N in Pinellas Park, Florida 33781.


It Appears the Time to Buy a New Home is Now!

According to a recent St Petersburg Times article, Tampa Bay area home prices are predicted to rise in 2012. A California based housing valuation and analytics firm sees a 7.4% home price increase this year and according to them, that would make Tampa Bay sixth in the nation in terms of home prices improving.

According one Realtor in the article, and according to many builders in the area, the Tampa Bay area led the way into the crashing of the housing market and Tampa Bay will help lead the way out. It appears the worst may be over and most areas have bottomed out indicating that we should start to see steady gains in the value of homes this coming year.

So, if you have been sitting on the sidelines, it may be time to jump in and consider buying that new home you have been putting off for the last couple of years. Things appear on the upswing and with costs going up and the value of homes finally starting to appreciate again, now is a great time to buy that new home.

American Housing Builders, Inc. has weathered the storm and have many new energy saving features incorporated into all of our new homes, including R-30 ceiling insulation, “Energy Star” low-e double insulated windows, “Energy Star” dishwasher and “Energy Star’ 14 SEER air handler and heat pump to help reduce the costs of maintaining your home.

Homeownership is still the American Dream!

The American Dream!

American Housing is very involved in community projects and recently partnered up with the City of St. Petersburg, Florida and Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County in order to build a new home and fulfill the dream of homeownership for a local family.

At a small home dedication ceremony celebrating this achievement, Clarence Scott, St. Petersburg City Council Member, welcomed many from the community, including Lee Kretzer and Carla Slicker from American Housing, to the “Presenting of the Keys” to the new owner, Mr. Jones. Ron Spoor of Habitat Pinellas opened with a prayer. “We gather to celebrate the commitment and determination of Mr. Jones and to thank all of the people who worked together to turn Mr. Jones’s dream of homeownership into reality. May this home we dedicate today become a beacon of hope for him and others. Together we pray. Amen.”

The New Home Dedication by Clarence Scott, III

American Housing Builders, Inc., through the City of St. Petersburg Neighborhood Stabilization Program, recently built this beautiful new home for Mr. Jones and his family. This achievement was celebrated at the home site on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 with members of the City of St. Petersburg City Council, members of the City’s NSP Program and members of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County.

At the ceremony, there were gifts for Mr. Jones and his family. A Habitat volunteer provided Mr. Jones with a “symbolic” Habitat for Humanity hammer to take care of those small jobs around the house. City of St. Petersburg Council Members Wingay Newton and Bill Dudley gave the proud new owners an American flag and Kevin Klucas gave a “Welcome” mat. David Fornek offered Mr. Jones a new Bible for him and his family.

Clarence Scott, City of St. Petersburg Council Member, then gave Mr. Jones the keys to his new home. A proud Mr. Jones then proceeded to thank the City and American Housing for helping him and his family achieve their dream of owning their own home.

Finally, the Reverend Daryl Sey from the St. John Missionary Baptist Church blessed this new home for Mr. Jones and his family.

In a May 18, 2010 story written by Teresa Burney at Builderonline, it is noted that April housing starts were up 5.8% compared to March and up 40.9% compared with April 2009 according to the Commerce Department’s monthly residential construction report. Single-family starts were up 10.2% month over month, to a seasonally adjusted level of 593,000.

Compared with April 2009, all of the regions throughout the U.S. saw increases: the Northeast was up 66%; the Midwest, 25%; the South, 59.6%; and the West, 3.5%, all on a year-over-year-basis.

In terms of future construction, total building permits hit a seasonally adjusted level of 606,000 units, which is 11.5% lower than the previous month, but on an annual basis, April’s overall building permits were 15.9% above the same month one year ago.

So, after all of the negative news we have been hearing over the past few years, it seems as though there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel for builders and consumers. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a continuing trend back to normalcy.
