How to shop for auto financing

Before you begin looking at cars, it's smart to shop around for credit. You're more likely to save money when you're aware of the available plans-- and you'll be in a better bargaining position, too.

Pre-sited Houses

In the Echo Hill community of Amherst, Mass., you won't see any utility poles, crowded streets or rows of look-alike houses. Instead, you'll find a quiet residential area where houses are tucked away amidst trees and forest greenery.
