It's been a tough year for anyone in the home industry - especially home buyers. The market has been controlled mainly by investors, scouting out deals on foreclosures, and bartering with desperate sellers to get whatever they can for a home that is no longer worth its weight in brick and mortar. But as you'll read in today's borrowed article from the US News & Report, buyers can take heart in 2015, as home buying trends are expected to tip back in their favor! With investment property being less desirable going into the new year, and lenders like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae offering more obtainable home financing programs, it's finally looking like a stellar year for home buyers! Read more about what to expect in the home market in 2015 in this exciting report!

A Personal Message from Frank Brown, President - Frank's Home Place, Inc.
"I have hopefully reached the end of a very challenging bout with cancer this year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wife, daughters, extended family, business partner and business associates, and my many friends and customers for their tremendous outpouring of love, caring and support, as well as all the skilled doctors and nurses that have taken such good care of me. I also appreciate all those who added me to their thoughts and prayers - both at home and in their churches. Most of all I would like to give thanks to God for the blessing of healing he has bestowed on my life, and the love, kindness and support of those He put in my path to walk along this journey with me. It is one I could not have walked alone, and I know He was there with me every step of the way.
It is truly a blessing indeed to witness the support and love from family and friends that I have had during this very difficult and stressful time. Through it all, if there's one thing I have learned, it is that live must be lived not day by day, but breath by breath - one breath at at time...
I love you all!
Frank's Home Place has always strived to provide our customers with the best quality homes and outstanding customer service, as well as be a voice for the manufactured and modular home industry in our community. Our efforts were recently honored by our peers and associates at the 2014 NCMHI Annual Meeting held at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro in June, when we were chosen as the proud recipient of the distinguished Independent Retailer of the Year award! We'd like to take this opportunity to humbly "toot our horn" a little!
This award was created to recognize one independent retail lot in the state for demonstrating a commitment to professionalism and to educating consumers and elected officials about the manufactured and modular housing industry. The independent retailer of the year’s sales team should show consistent involvement in serving NCMHA, its local community, and the industry as a whole. To qualify as an independent retailer nominee, the retailer must only operate two or less sales centers in North Carolina.
It is truly an honor and privilege to be presented with this award, and we humbly thank all those who saw fit to recognize Franks Home Place as worthy of this honor. It is our goal to continue to provide our industry, our community and our customers with the same commitment to excellence that we have for the past 35+ years. From the bottom of our hearts, we humbly and gratefully say, "thank you".
To our customers, if you're looking for "award-winning" service when considering the purchase of your next home, please give us a call! We want to be your #1 resource for all your manufactured and modular home needs! To our community, we remain dedicated to educating our citizens and those in the housing and building industry, of the values and benefits of buying a manufactured or modular home, as well as lobbying for positive changes in the manufactured and modular industry in North Carolina.
Visit the NCMHA or NCIRG for more information about the manufactured and modular home industry in North Carolina, and the role independent retailers play in this valuable industry!
