Custom home Dreambuilder 18 is complete

Dreambuilder Custom Homes is pleased to announce the recent completion of Dreambuilder 18, our new custom home located in prestigious Pablo Creek Reserve, a gated community in the Intracoastal West area of Jacksonville.  Custom designed from scratch for David and Lindsay Rosas, Dreambuilder 18 is an authentic farmhouse modernized for today’s family.

When the Rosas first approached Dreambuilder, they were interested in a more Mediterranean-styled home.  Upon driving through the community, however, we noticed a large number of existing Mediterranean homes and a fewer number of homes in other styles.  Working with the Rosas, we came to the farmhouse style as one that would drive the lifestyle the Rosas were looking for:  beauty, casual living, earthy finishes and the feeling of ‘hearth and home’, while providing space for their growing family as well as lifestyle activities the Rosas enjoy.

By Marcy Gordon, Associated Press

WASHINGTON – May 24, 2013 – Average rates on fixed mortgages rose for the third straight week, hitting their highest levels since mid-March. Still, mortgage rates remained close to historic lows, a trend that should help sustain the housing recovery.

Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate for the 30-year loan increased to 3.59 percent this week. That’s up from 3.51 percent last week. And it is above the rate of 3.31 percent reached in November, the lowest on records dating to 1971.

The average on the 15-year loan jumped to 2.77 percent. That’s up from 2.69 percent last week. The record low of 2.56 percent was hit on May 2.
