Remain Vigilant of your Credit Report to Protect from Identity Theft

credit history and protection from identity theft
While there are many ways you can make sure that your identity is staying safe, one way that is both free and easy is to check your credit report each year. Since you receive a free credit report from each credit reporting agency each year, you can get a snapshot of your finances three times a year for free. This snapshot can also be an excellent chance to detect and rectify identity theft. The Equifax Finance Blog explains how to make the most of this in the new article, “The Facts About Credit Report Accuracy.”

When you search your credit report, there is a small chance that you may come across errors. Errors can come from many places, including mis-filings, incorrect data from lenders or credit card companies or from identity theft. Since the chances of mis-filing and incorrect data can be as low as 1.9 percent, if you order your credit report and find lots of errors, you may have caught an identity thief before too much damage gets done.

Two Professionally Decorated Models Amaze at East Cherokee

Located in beautiful Woodstock, the Orchards Group is pleased to welcome active adult homebuyers to the grand opening of their two new professionally decorated models at The Orchards of East Cherokee!

Mitch Block, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Orchards Group explained the models by stating, “We want to properly demonstrate the improvements we have made to some of our floor plans, and with the increased level of sales (we are now just under 50 percent sold), we felt a permanent presence in a more visible section of the community was warranted as well.”

One model home features the lovely Ashewood floor plan with two bedrooms, two full baths and a sunroom. This home boasts several upgrades including tasteful trim features; built-in cabinets; oak hardwood flooring throughout the dining room, kitchen, foyer and sunroom; gorgeous granite countertops, maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and so much more! This home can be built on other homesites for around $239,000.

Featuring the Beaumont home design, the second model home is a basic design that encompasses a two bedroom and two bath plan. This home also features an optional 600 square foot activities suite above the garage, which includes a full bath, plus ‘flex space’ on the main floor for a breakfast, hobby or reading room. Priced around $209,000, this home is the perfect to build on your homesite!

At The Orchards at East Cherokee, active adult homebuyers can also tour the single family home section of the community, also known as the Gallery collection. Buyers will find that both collections offer beautiful and functional floor plans and zero to low maintenance. Community amenities such as a barbeque grilling area, waterfall sitting plaza, outdoor swimming pool and a grand clubhouse are available to the whole community!

Ideally situated in Woodstock, The Orchards of East Cherokee is located near I-575, providing convenience to Canton, Holly Springs, Kennesaw, Roswell and more! Residents will enjoy the fine dining, shopping, recreation and entertainment from local venues as well as the wonderful free events that Downtown Woodstock holds throughout the year.

New Homes in Phoenix Planned for Villagio Estates

Wilson Parker Homes is proud to introduce their latest gated community of Phoenix new homes at Villagio Estates. Located in East Valley, this collection of homes adds to their portfolio in Phoenix, which already includes Rogers Ranch and Saratoga Springs.

At Villagio Estates, buyers will be amazed by these homes that offer a desert flair and spacious floor plans. Priced from the $140,000s, these homes are an amazing value packed with only the highest quality products.
Phoenix is a housing market that has seen consistent growth in the housing market according to Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller index, which is why we have decided to expand our offerings in Arizona.

East Valley, part of the greater Phoenix region, is home to more than 1.3 million residents. Extensive bus routes, the Light Rail and several airports provide transportation both to the city and to other states, but residents don't have to travel far to find work, as several national and local companies have headquarters in this region.

The area's local schools are consistently high scoring, and several higher education opportunities are also nearby including Arizona State University, East Valley Institute of Technology and local community colleges.
If you're a fan of the outdoors, Arizona has more to offer than just the Grand Canyons. Hikers, golfers, boaters, fishermen and nature enthusiasts of all types flock to the region's several mountain ranges, golf courses, state parks and lakes.

If you're looking for culture, you'll find it at local venues such as the Chandler Center for the Arts, Higley Center for the Performing Arts and Tempe Center for the Arts. In addition, local history is on display at the Arizona Museum for Youth, Arizona Museum of Natural History and Mesa Historical Museum.

With all of these activities and attractions to keep you and your family entertained and their quality, affordable new homes, they expect Villagio Estates to sell out quickly.
