    Why is now such a good time to build a new home?

    n 2008, the headlines screamed: “Downturn”, “Foreclosure”, and “Recession”, when they should actually have been screaming: “Low Interest Rates”, “Tax Credits” and “Opportunity”. The Peoria area economy kept humming along, even as other areas of the country sputtered, spit, and slowed to a crawl. Our company was around for the early 1980’s, and we remember what it was like: High unemployment, high interest rates, huge drops in home values, and families leaving Peoria at record rates to find greener pastures. We knew that this most recent downturn in our industry was driven by the national media and panic. The reality for Peoria, Illinois is this:
    1) 30 year fixed interest rates are well below 4%, 15 year rates are below 3%.
    2) We still have some of the most affordable homes and building sites in the country.
    3) When you consider the tax advantages of interest and property taxes, the long term appreciation in value, and the functional value of a home, it is one of the best investments you can make.

    Can contributions be made to a Traditional IRA after age 70.5?

    No. With a traditional IRA, no contribution can be made for the tax year in which you turn age 70.5 and beyond. However, if you are still working, you and your employer can continue making contributions to an employer-sponsored retirement plan. With a Roth IRA, as long as you have earned income you can still make contributions after turning 70.5 (assuming you are under the maximum modified adjusted gross income limit).
