mississippi go zone: GO Zone is more "No GO"-thanks to greed. - 03/13/08 04:07 AM
August 29th 2005, not a great day if you happen to live on the gulf coast states of Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. On that day, arguably the worst hurricane to hit the gulf coast came ashore. Hurricane Katrina roared in with 150+ mph winds and a tidal surge that towered over the buildings that it was about to crush.
 
   
So the cleanup began. The American Red Cross, the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, the national Guard, and thousands of huge hearted volunteers arrived. The chore of clearing debris made even more difficult by the knowledge that as the next remnant … (2 comments)

mississippi go zone: GO Zone for the ordinary person - 02/29/08 05:42 AM
You can fing groups posting, blogging, webinars, seminars, e-campaigns, tours, rallies, media blitzes, faxes, carrier pigeons, smoke signals, drums, intelligence briefings, and virtually any other king of media summit all talking about the "GO Zone". But does it make sense to the average person?

But... the one that you as a real estate investor should pay attention to is the whopping bonus 50% depreciation allowance for investors purchasing property (not just real estate) after August 27, 2005.  As … (0 comments)

So does anyone think that a need doesn't exist along the Mississippi gulf coast for housing? Take a look at an excerpt of this months article from The Journal;
"The state of Mississippi has determined that there are still 40,000 homes to be rebuilt in order to bring its six southernmost counties up to their pre-Katrina count. Based on a (2005) pre-Katrina population of 445,375 individuals in the six coastal counties of Pearl River, Hancock, Stone, Harrison, George and Jackson, this figure places the number of standing homes before Katrina at about 110,000.

mississippi go zone: GO Zone, tax season, and how can I benefit? - 02/25/08 05:40 AM
With tax season here, could you be thinking "I could have done better?" Look at the "GO Zone".
The two year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina went by, many media outlets are featuring articles and reports (MSNBC, Rising from the Ruin) reminding us how devasting that storm was by documenting the hardships of the rebuilding process in the Gulf region, a process that for some is taking far too long. Most people read or watch these reports and articles then look at the pictures and think to yourself, "could this truly be our country?". The answer is yes, this is our country. More importantly, what can we do about it?
Very … (0 comments)
