atlanta: Dream solution for Georgia flood areas - special Down Payment Assistance - 02/19/10 03:32 AM
September of 2009 brought devastating flooding to many areas of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. During this time flood waters from the Chattahoochee River, the Yellow River, Peachtree Creek and hundreds of other small tributaries and reservoirs crested to record levels. During a 24 to 48 hour period as much as 15 inches of rain deluged the already water soaked landscape and created a new line of demarcation between flood zone and safe zone.

Even the banks who owned the properties were reluctant to lend on them even to the most qualified of buyers.
According to Kim Courtney, an FHA underwriter with AmericaHomeKey, Inc. and Marietta manager Jesse Kight, … (3 comments)

While for the last several years I have been blogging as partner and "President" of a busy but small mortgage lender licensed in Georgia, Florida and for a time North Carolina things have changed mightily over the last few weeks. Many of you knew I was considering mothballing my Novation Mortgage and indeed had spoken to some about various opportunities around the industry.
Early on in the change process I decided if I were to continue with my experience in the mortgage industry it would be at Regional Director or above or good old Loan Officer. Several people contacted me through … (5 comments)

atlanta: Title Seasoning - What Investors and Agents Must Know - 10/25/07 03:55 AM
Ever heard of flipping? There are two types: honest business people with integrity and morals who buy low and sell high and scumwad dirtballs who cheat, lie, steal, and spoil the system. Remember when you could take out a little pad of paper with some numbers on it, scratch out some words and a monetary value, sign it at the bottom and hand it to the person behind the counter and leave with your stuff without so much as showing a driver's license? Like the days of writing checks with no ID gone are the days of unseasoned sales without jumping … (0 comments)
