Get In on the Good Life!

Jensen communities provides the best quality of life in your own home.

There are very few places today that people can choose to live well within their means. Perhaps the McMansion craze is over due to this wonderful economy but the fallout will appearantly be felt for years to come. Home prices and square footage increased to the point where it became hard to truly downsize or rightsize to a home within one's means in retirement (or just when the nest is empty so one can better prepare for retirement).

A bigger, more expensive home with an unaffordable mortgage does not lead to financial freedom. A home paid for (or mostly paid for) with equity from one's present home or savings can provide more personal freedom and peace of mind.

My Grandfather liked to say "that a loan well made, was a loan half paid". He was obviously not a fan of "no money down" home purchases and we have stuck to his wisdom these many years later.

The troubled economy has created tremendous house buying opportunities. Define your own standard and sense of financial freedom. Get in on the Good Life!(TM) in a house within your means.
