The S&P Case-Shiller Index just came out with their latest numbers.  They are a few months back so this is for homes sold through February 2010.  Atlanta is back to its lows that we saw back in February 2009. The good thing is that Atlanta is almost back to where it was in the year 2000.  That's ...

Many in Georgia didn't know that a big profit center for real estate closing attorneys was from the sale of title insurance.  Some insiders knew that they received a commission from these sales but I could never get any of my attorney friends to tell me how much.  I figured it was probably 10-20%...

  This young guy lives in a condo he bought in 2005 for $210,000, with a mortgage of $190,000. He decided to stop making his mortgage payments 29 months ago.  Why?  I could afford that. But, when it's only worth $45,000, I would much rather flush my money down the toilet... I can go across the st...

NCR has called Dayton Ohio home for 125 years.  This Fortune 500 company is now going to call Duluth Georgia home.  It's nice to see that such a big company has seen the benefits of moving to Atlanta.

 Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy When people talk about bonds and CDOs and throw in all of these new fangled financial terms, many, including myself, begin getting confused and have a hard time figuring out what exactly is going on.  I think that many inv...

    I wanted to see what I could do with getting a Google Document chart embedded into a blog.  I wanted to see if then by updating the original Google Spreadsheet, the embedded chart would automatically get updated.  I created a simple chart of my weight.  I started a "diet" 30 days ago and have...

This is a great kid's video on how to game the system in order to become filthy, stinkin' rich. It's funny because it's so true. If there's a law holding you back, just write up a law that's better for you.  Since politicians are the ones who can change the law, you just need to find the right on...

Go to CrackShackOrMansion.com and take their 16 question test where they give you a picture of a home and you have to say whether the home is a crack shack or a million dollar mansion.  It's really amazing what you get for a million dollars in Vancouver today.  I visited Vancouver once and though...
