The first step is to determine your monthly income. It isn't quite as easy as it sounds. Lenders only count income they can document through paperwork.If you are a salaried employee, and don't earn bonuses, it's easy. Get out your paycheck. If you get paid twice a month, multiply by two.

atlanta: How Can You Improve Your Credit Score? - 10/03/07 03:55 AM
You ask........
It's virtually impossible to change your score in the time between when most people decide to buy a home or refinance their mortgage and when they apply. So the short answer is, you really can't "on the spot." But there are strategies you can live with to make sure when you apply for a loan your score is as high as possible.

Real Estate News We Know You Can Use!
Negotiate with builders - Don't be afraid to ask builders for concessions such as steep price discounts, closing-cost waivers, luxury upgrades, free landscaping, free trips and free club memberships. Many builder-incentive packages are worth $10,000 and up!

atlanta: Homeownership and Why It Makes Sense - 09/28/07 03:43 PM
Interest in homeownership among Americans has been justified by claims that it confers benefits both to individuals and to the society as a whole, including good citizens, stable neighborhoods and strong communities.
Strong and consistent evidence indicates that homeowners are more likely to: a) be satisfied with their homes and neighborhoods; b) participate in voluntary and political activities; and c) stay in their homes longer, contributing to neighborhood stability.
