    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.
