Stop and Think before You plan to Change Your Credit Scores!!!!! - 08/25/10 06:41 PM
Very important if your planning to buy in the future Via Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage: Credit is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES IN getting a loan today. Time and time again, I'm called by a client who says "I PAY MY BILLS ON TIME, BUT MY PEOPLE SAY MY CREDIT STINKS.... Maybe I'll just pay off my credit cards today..... No, No, No, No Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!" Truthfully, there is more to a credit score than just making your payments on time or paying off your credit. In fact paying off all your credit today could be a bad move. Needless to say, I've broken (2 comments)

We took a little trip to look at homes and ended up on the lake. We didn't intend to be on the lake but the prices of homes on Lake Lanier had dropped so much since last time we were here that I couldn't say no. The price's were not only reasonable but very appealing. So we hit the lake, played king of the mountain and looked at homes from a boat!
After spending most of our house hunting on the lake we were introduced to 2000 acres of riding trails 5 minutes from the boat landing. I'm (7 comments)
Think Positive and be Free! - 08/15/10 10:47 AM
The sky is falling Well maybe it only feels like it! I will not stand by and watch, I am putting my foot down and pushing forth! Purge the negative thoughts from your head and be thankful for what you have. My best friend called me last night with an epiphany! While sitting on his porch drinking a beer it occurred to him that living in Mexico on his meager pension would be ideal. I think most of us have sat on a beach somewhere and said "I could do this forever". What if you could wake up everyday and (5 comments)

Your photo's are your online curb appeal! - 08/12/10 09:34 AM
. I will not fill this post with a ton of horrible pictures but if you are an Agent or a seller looking to sell, not a set of old golf clubs, but your most valuable asset. Demand the best! I don't think anyone really gets in a car anymore to look for a house, they get on the computer. If the pictures of your house are small, or fuzzy, or came from a camera phone, people will pass you by. Curb appeal starts online not in the driveway anymore. You can hire a professional photographer for a couple hundred (5 comments)
Brady Howard email@example.com Via Tim and Julie Harris (Harris Real Estate University): Breaking News…. Bank of America is testing and will soon have a national roll-out of a new program that will revolutionize the short sale process. This new program is called HPO Short Sale. (We know the ‘H-P’ stands for High Performance but, as of this post we still don’t know what the ‘O’ represents.) This program is NOT a rumor...its real. I have (4 comments)
Hello homeowners, is this you? Do you like to dream like my boys? Everyone likes to dream and think about being something or someone they're not. For example, in the picture above my boys think they are fish in an aquarium, and while it was fun to pretend pretty soon they had to breath and come back to reality. I'm not here to tell you that I'm the best Realtor out there, as a matter of fact I don't want your business. I drive down street after street and see the same home's for sale over and over and over.
