hiram: Paulding County Ga. Market report Nov 2008 - 11/24/08 10:16 PM
Here is the most recently available market information from Realist for Paulding County Georgia home and condo sales.
The September to September home sales figures are about as expected. There about a 30% drop in sales volume and a 10% drop in the average sales price.   A lot of the price drop may be attributed to the exteme decrease in more expensive new home sales.

hiram: Dave Ramsey - You fix You! - 10/08/08 05:42 AM
Can Washington fix things and what are our own attitudes?  As some of you may know, I am a fan of financial advisor Dave Ramsey.Sometimes I don't agree with him 100% but I certainly can't argue with his success or common sense approaches to financial matters.  Last week I posted Dave's plan for the financial crisis.

hiram: Do you know the "Bush Doctrine"? Charlie Gibson Doesn't - 09/13/08 05:22 AM
According to wikipedia  "The first usage of the term may have been when conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer used the term in February 2001 to refer to the president's unilateral approach to national missile defense well before September 11th"     
Read the entire wikipedia article here

hiram: 90 Day listing? Not likely - 09/12/08 07:32 AM
Here is a link to an article on Realtor Magazine online and first published in "Business Week" .  It lists the top 10 fastest selling zip codes in the entire U.S.

In my life before real estate I was in the car business. Its a terrible business to be in but that's a different story.  Walking in to a car dealership actually really makes me nauseous. I got tired of having to beat people up (figuratively) to make a sale, putting up with obnoxious sales manages was a whole other story.

If you are in the market to buy a car here are a few tips that I would give, In no particular order :
