New Construction of Single Family Homes Picking up in Sedona

http://www.sedonafinehome.com/Housing-Starts.html
The cost of building new is now beginning to compete with the cost of buying an existing home. Prices of new homes ranging between $380,000 and $750,000 depending on size and finishes, have an average price per sqft of $260. By comparison, existing homes are listed at an average of $200/sqft.The economic case for building new versus buying an existing home becomes more compelling at the high end of the market as it commands higher prices per square foot.

WAKING UP: Chapter One : Sam Harris

http://www.samharris.org/blog/item/chapter-one

Our minds are all we have. They are all we have ever had. And they are all we can offer others. This might not be obvious, especially when there are aspects of your life that seem in need of improvement—when your goals are unrealized, or you are struggling to find a career, or you have relationships that need repairing. But it's the truth. Every experience you have ever had has been shaped by your mind. Every relationship is as good or as bad as it is because of the minds involved. If you are perpetually angry, depressed, confused, and unloving, or your attention is elsewhere, it won't matter how successful you become or who is in your life—you won't enjoy any of it.
