Why working with a custom builder with a sterling reputation, and building a custom home in Pike, Wayne or Monroe County, PA can be a wise and savvy decision for your financial plan and retirement years.

Having a game plan in place for the future makes good sense, at any age and any stage of life. At some point we leave behind those carefree days of childhood when we were totally engaged in the present moment and indulged in our imaginations.

Happily Retired

Planning for the future requires attention to many different facets:

  • Income Tax Strategies
  • Investment Portfolios
  • Employer Plan Benefits
  • Health Care Insurance / Long Term Care Insurance
  • Education Funding
  • Asset Protection / Risk Management
  • Estate Planning
  • Retirement Planning

Successful people take action and put good ideas into action!

A Formula for Success

In today’s marketplace, there are factors that make this the perfect time to plan and take action for securing your ideal home for your retirement years.

Interest rates are low and the most competitive pricing is now currently available.

Tax Credits – You may qualify for the new expansion tax credit (10% of the price of your home up to $6500) or, possibly, the first time homebuyer tax credit if you have not owned a home 3 years prior to purchase.

Additionally, in the Poconos of Northeast, Pennsylvania, Pike, Wayne and Monroe County, taxes are low compared to neighboring states. People can purchase much more land and home for their money.

Best of all for the fun-loving retiree, the Poconos offer Four Seasons of Endless Fun! The time is right, the location is perfect and, when combining all of this with the Poconos most award-winning builder, RGB Custom Builder, it is a perfect formula for success!
