    REFLEXOLOGY by Joan Braemer 
    Foot reflexology is a science‐based stress relieving technique based on 
    the principle that there are reflexes in the feet     relative to all parts of 
    the  body.    Reflexology  is  used  primarily  for  relaxing  tension,  improves 
    nerves and blood supply and helps nature to normalize.    
     

    Reflexology relaxes the stress that can affect your health and is a safe 
    effective way to better health.

          From the Real Estate Corner
Are housing prices coming around?  This recent article from the USA 
Today hints that we may be reaching the bottom of the market.  This 
is welcome news as we are poised to release our new Master’s    
Landing Townhomes.  Please come by the Real Estate office anytime

HOUSING PRICES ROUNDING A CORNER ?                   by USA Today 
 

Housing prices in May showed their first gain in three years, a  
sign that the beleaguered market may finally be turning around. 
Home prices rose 0.5% in May from April, according to the        
Standard & Poor's/Case‐Shiller home price index, which measures 
changes in the value of residential real estate in 20 cities.                   Master’s Landing Townhomes now completed!   
                                                                              Call Billie for an appointment today.  828‐926‐4852 
 

It also comes on the heels of other promising signs that the market is stabilizing, including a smaller inventory of 
homes for sale and a continuing rise in home sales. 
 
"This corroborates a lot of other economic indicators that have been telling us the housing market is in the process of 
turning around," says Bernard Baumohl at the Economic Outlook Group. "The worst is over.". 
 
The positive housing data is also good news for lenders, who will see the value of their assets move higher, resulting in 
fewer losses on the balance sheet.  Economists say the big question now is whether the promising signs in the housing 
market will encourage homeowners enough to result in more consumer spending. 
 
Other hints of an improving housing market include a rise in existing‐home sales for the third consecutive month in 
June, according to the National Association of Realtors.  And sales of new homes in June jumped 11% from May,  
according to government figures, and the supply of homes for sale fell to 8.8 months, the lowest since October 2007.

             Golf with a Llama!
Golfers at Maggie Valley Club now have a new choice of caddies….. Llamas and 
their  handlers  from  llamacaddy.com  will  be  available  for  Thursday  afternoon 
tee  times  with  golfers!    Golfers  will  walk  the  course  with  their  llama  caddy.  
Each  llama  will  have  a  handler  with  it  who  will  attend  to  any  needs  of  the 
llama throughout the 18 holes. 
 
Llamas are South American animals related to camels that have been used as 
pack  animals  as  far  back  as  the  Incan  empire.    Llamas  are  great  on  the  golf 
course because instead of regular hooves, llamas have soft pads on their feet which do not tear up the delicate grass on 
the course. The llamas can each carry 2 sets of golf clubs. 
                                              
                                             Llamacaddy.com  is  located  in  Brevard,  NC.    The  llamas  of  llamacaddy.com  are     
                                             currently  working  with  another  WNC  country  club  and  now  with  Maggie  Valley 
                                             Club.  Llamacaddy.com has been featured on BBC News and was also seen on the 
                                             NBC  Nightly  News  after  the  PGA  Championship.    In  addition  to  golf  caddies,       
                                             llamacaddy.com also books special events and children’s parties. 
                                              
                                             The llama rounds will happen every Thursday at 5 pm now through October 29th.  
                                             Rounds of golf will include 9 holes and cost $70 plus tax.  The number of llamas is 
                                             limited  and  they  will  ONLY  be  available  on  Thursday  afternoons.    Please  call  the
