Looking for a great Irish Pub to celebrate St. Patty's Day? Look no further than Conor O'Neils in downtown Ann Arbor! Located on Main Street, the festivities begin at 7am on Wednesday. Last year was the first year that I went to Conor O'Neils on Saint Patrick's Day and I was pleasantly surprised.

ann arbor: USDA Rural Development loan is great! - 04/30/09 05:19 AM

I am doing my second deal with buyers who are obtaining USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Rural Housing Loan and I just have to sing the praises of this fabulous program!
This program is an alternative to FHA as it requires a 0% down payment!  There are no purchase price limits and the cost of repairs can be rolled into the mortgage.  The deal I am currently doing has allowed my clients to wrap in almost $10,000 of repairs into their mortgage amount for a new furnace, appliances, kitchen countertops and carpeting for a great deal on a foreclosure.  We used this as an … (0 comments)

ann arbor: Death of the Small Town Newspaper - 03/23/09 08:11 AM
It was announced today that the Ann Arbor News will be closing it's doors in July after being the Ann Arbor Area's daily newspaper for 174 years. 
They will be shifting their focus towards the Internet to just as real estate professionals have been doing for years.  Although most homebuyers find their next house on the Internet and not from the newspapers, I still wonder how the effect of the newspaper closing will effect real estate in our area, if at all.
As for changing my business, all I have to do is delete a line in my marketing plan and will have … (8 comments)

ann arbor: First time homeowners and FHA mortgages - 01/22/08 05:27 AM
I have been farming an apartment complex in Ann Arbor with potential first time homeowners for a few months and have found it difficult to convince them that they do not need a 20% down payment.  Our company recently hosted a panel about FHA mortgages which explained how great FHA mortgages can be for first time homebuyers who do not have much savings for a down payment or who have poor credit history. 
I am sure that this generation has learned from their parents that you must put 20% down, and even Suze Orman still recommends the same thing for first … (6 comments)
