What do you guys think about donating prosthetics for Haiti Relief? - 01/22/10 11:23 AM
The beautiful thing about living in Henry County is that you always know somebody who can find out just about anything you can dream of. The other morning, I heard Taylor from a 104.7 FM (The Fish) says that she and her husband were wanting to find a prosthetics-centered charity to donate to for the Haiti Relief effort. I thought that's it. That's how I want our family to help in the Haiti Relief Effort--donate to a prosthetics-centered charity. That afternoon, while sitting in the carpool line I saw the mother, (Paige Spratlin) of a double ampute girl, Adanech, walk by. (0 comments)
Sunshines on I-75, Henry County begins to thaw out!! - 01/13/10 02:01 PM
Here comes the sun, yadadaadaaa, here comes the sun. Last week I wrote about how why we close when snow comes to the Atlanta area--because we southerners have no business driving on icy roads and we don't have the equipment to get sand and salt on all the roads that need it. Now we are fixing busted water pipes and sorting through auto accidents. While we were bundled up in our homes (with our milk and breead, of course) we watched the local TV stations for schools closings. I got to thinking. What if we only allowed certain drivers to drive (0 comments)
Now, look at the pending or under contracts report below. There's a glimmer of hope for homes priced in the $350K to $400K. I'll be looking that up to get the scoop on that. For now, it looks like a particular neighborhood may have had a great sale.
Okay. Now, look at the inventory below. Again the (1 comments)
Snowflake spotted on I-75, Henry County shut down! - 01/07/10 12:03 PM
We knew there was a possibility of snow probably 4 days ago and now it may have arrived. I don't know for sure. But, I did just get an email with the announcement that Henry County schools have cancelled all practices and after-school athletic activities. That sounds silly to people who have spent any part of their lives up north where snow is just part of every-day life. So if you're one of those people who thinks it's hilarious that we southerners shut down because of a snowflake let me explain. We don't have the road equipment to deal with any (5 comments)
What's been selling the last 6 months in Henry County? - 01/06/10 01:13 PM
Based on the reports below you will see that homes priced below $100K are the ones that are selling. Homes in that price range usually are foreclosures. But that inventory is dwindling a bit. That price range is the one to watch. Once the inventory at that price point is dried up, we should home prices start to recover. If the job market shows any signs of recovery soon, you can start to look for those "green shoots."
VA Vendee--My experience with this loan progam Part 3 of 3 The Closing - 01/06/10 12:26 PM
Will I ever recommend the VA Vendee program? NO. My conclusion after this experience with the VA Vendee loan program has been that it is typical of other 1-800 or other internet-based lenders. You as an agent or as a buyer or both of you are going to have to to follow-up and follow-up some more. It's a loan program offered through a Bank of America call center in Texas. You will not get the same service as you will from a reputable local lender. You will find little information regarding this program on the internet because there are very few home buyers (38 comments)
