Top Homeowner Regrets

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

HomeownerRegretsHere’s some food for thought: Homeower Regrets.  We learn by our mistakes and in this case you can learn from the mistakes of others.  The following are the Top Homeowner Regrets.

  • 34% – I wish I had chosen a larger home.
  • 27% – I wish I had done more remodeling when I bought the home.
  • 22% – I wish I had more information about the home before I decided to buy.
  • 18% – I wish I had put more money down for the down payment.
  • 16% – I wish I had been more financially secure before deciding to buy.

Having a trusted REALTOR by your side to guide you through the entire real estate process can help minimize any regrets.

Food Drive Under Way for United Way

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

DonateFoodHereArea businesses, including Hunziker & Associates, REALTORS®, are working with the United Way this month to help families in need put food on their table. You can be a part of it too! Simply bring your food or cash donation to Hunziker & Associiates, REALTORS® at 105 S. 16th Street in Ames  May 13-23. Your donation will be distributed to the one of the 15 food pantries in the county. The United Way is hoping for a large food donation this year. The need for food is even greater during the summer months. One out of four students in Story County are on a free or reduced lunch program. These children will no longer have access to school-provided meals once summer break starts.

Click Here for the United Way of Story County website for some ideas for donations. Cash donation may be used to purchase perishable items or other items in bulk.
