Real Estate Cedar Rapids
All About Becoming a Homeowner From a Seasoned Home Builder in Iowa
The meaning of owning property in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is simple. Owning real estate in these thriving communities and the surrounding cities means that you own land and property. Your property can entail a beautiful green home, a garage, a building for storage, a pool house, and much more. The size of the area your home sits on can be as small as a postage stamp, or you could be the owner of a few acres or several acres of land. Real estate means you are the owner. You have the right to ownership. When you buy property, you can buy just the land, or you can buy the land and all the fixed structures on that area of land.
Along with this ownership does come absolute rights. Absolute rights give you ownership to the land, all buildings on the grounds, crops, free-running water, such as creeks, lakes, waterfalls and ponds, trees, and mineral rights. If you purchase 20 acres of land and strike oil, you are the sole owner and collect royalties off that oil, not the previous owners. Real estate comes in a few different varieties. You can buy residential property and use your purchase for your primary residence. This primary residence can be a newly built home by one of the leading home builders in Iowa. The property you purchase can be a commercial entity. This type of purchase may include malls, individual shops and retail stores of different varieties, medical office buildings, educational buildings, hotels, apartment complexes, a home that you rent out, and many forms of industrial settings. It is wise to purchase your property in a growing, safe, and prosperous community such as those found in the cities of Marion and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

What Does My Property Mean to Me?
You own some land, and you own the structures sitting on that land. In rare instances, property can be taken away from you. However, to lose property is a rare occurrence. Buying real estate as a significant, yet affordable, investment in one of our thriving communities gives you a high return if you decide to sell. You hang onto this investment for as long as you desire until you sell it for more than you paid. If you buy one of our homes already on land for $250,000, and in 10 years, you resell your property and home for $400,000, you made a significant initial property return on investment. Our homeowners who decide to buy a newly built home or have a house built for them have made money on their initial investment when and if they choose to sell. When you own property that has an eco-friendly and quality-built home on it, your property represents the highest quality as well. Our newer homes built under 20 years prior and mainly within the last year show amenities off the charts that include a high income from tenants with little-to-no turnover in tenants. Our properties are well located, surrounded by nearby shopping, prime school districts, hospitals, churches, restaurants, and more. These Class A properties offer a good return if and when you decide to sell. We are strictly Class A properties.
