MarketWatch , Monday, April 27, 2015
(RECAP: Mortgages backed by the Federal Housing Administration are making up a greater share of sales of new single-family homes, according to recent government data, in a sign that economic conditions and government actions may be expanding the pool of buyers in the housing market. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that FHA, which insures mortgages with low down payments, backed 16% of sales of new single-family homes in the first quarter — the greatest proportion in two years.)
The Free Lance-Star , Monday, April 27, 2015
(RECAP: Spotsylvania County residents on Tuesday will have another chance to voice their opinions of a controversial proposal for 2,270 townhouses, condos and apartments on U.S.1. Critics of the proposal say the developer, International Development of Virginia, is doing little to offset the project’s impact on schools and traffic. Jackson Village would have up to 1,190 condos and townhouses, 695 apartments and 385 age-restricted units that could include anything from a nursing home to detached homes. It will be the largest approved development in the county if the supervisors rezone the land from industrial to mixed use.), Monday, April 27, 2015
(RECAP: What began with energy-efficient appliances and solar panels evolved into the green home movement—essentially improving the health of the planet—and is now expanding to encompass entire housing developments with the mission to improve the health and well-being of their residents.)
USA Today , Monday, April 27, 2015
(RECAP: Mobile bankers are becoming obsessed with budgeting. The simplest money advice financial planners have extolled for years, but which surveys show many Americans do not follow, may finally be starting to stick thanks to the ease of smartphones, according to data out this month from Nielsen. In a survey of more than 3,600 smartphone owners who use their phones to shop or bank, out this month, 18% said they use their phones to budget and of those, 69% said they strongly or mostly agree that budgeting apps have helped change their spending habits.)
Alexandria Gazette Packet , Friday, April 24, 2015
(RECAP: The 2010 City Council Strategic Plan laid out seven main goals for the city’s long-term development. Goal number one was to “achieve a net increase in the number of dedicated affordable rental and ownership units in the city by 2015.” A community needs assessment released by a collection of Alexandria’s city departments and non-profit groups has confirmed that, as of 2015, the city has made little progress on that goal.)
