As sure as a 1200 pound glittering sphere will descend on the Big Apple and a 1250 pound copper and steel “acorn” will drop in Raleigh, 2011 will arrive and compel us to come up with some New Year’s Resolutions. I take my New Year inspiration from James Brown…as nothing beats “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” for cleansing one’s palate on an annual basis. Then, I contemplate the top trending resolutions for Raleigh (found here) and pick a few. Why reinvent the wheel?
Now, if I were a 25-34 year old (if only), I’d be including “buy a home” among my 2011 goals. (After all, losing weight, getting a new job, and having clear skin all seem so cliché). Apparently, homeownership is not an unusual quest among that demographic…perhaps strongly encouraged by parents anxious to get the kid out of the basement. There are lots of benefits for the potential young Buyer…plentiful selection, increased affordability, low interest rates, and not having to share the bedroom with the hot water tank.
