If you’re a first time buyer, you may wonder what the term Real Estate really means, and how you can get your hands on some in a growing market place. Real estate is property and consists of land, buildings or improvements on the land, and the natural resources attached to that land, such as crops and mineral rights. Two years ago there was an abundance of available real estate and buyers had a large selection and more property to look at then they knew what to do with. Today, while the market is vibrant and growing, homes get snatched up in the matter of days or weeks.

That means finding your dream property and having the money to build your dream home, just the way you imagined it.
