georgia: FHA loan limits in Acworth, Georgia - 06/07/10 05:09 AM
Selling or buying a home in Acworth, Georgia probably means you are within the FHA loan limits for the area. I know Acworth well, I grew up there from 1962 to 1977. The good news is Acworth home prices in the 30101 zip code have recovered much of their loss over the last few months.
With the median price of homes in Acworth being within the limits of FHA lending for the area you gain a great advantage. If the home buyer has 3.5% down or can get a gift from a qualifying party and the home price is within FHA home … (0 comments)

They all have different statements after the "unless" part but they all agree consumer confidence is very important to turning the corner on this nasty global economy. While I probably do not have the answers for the global economy I do have the answers for people looking for … (1 comments)

georgia: Kennesaw, Georgia - fueled by education and industry - 03/29/10 08:01 AM
View Larger Map
Established in the 1830s as a shanty town for railroad construction workers the city of Kennesaw, Georgia has come of age. It was once little less than a whistle stop town on the railway between Terminus (later to be named Atlanta) and Cartersville a few miles to the north.
During the Civil War the town, still known as Big Shanty, was the site of the famous locomotive chase when "The General" was stolen by yankee spies and chased all the way to the city of Ringold by another locomotive running in reverse. (History)

georgia: The Power of Persistence - (When the builder's lender couldn't) - 02/28/10 07:43 AM
He first called me in August when Novation Mortgage was still around. He found my name on the internet by search Google for "fha home loans" and called me for one reason: I was the first link on the list.
After reviewing the story I understood why he was searching. He is an H1B Visa holder with a high ranking, high paying position with a very well known company. He had been pre-approved for an FHA loan as non-occupant co-borrower on a home for his daughter who is on an H4 Visa which has been amended and she now has her … (19 comments)

georgia: 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.
At least eight people lost their lives, hundreds were injured and thousands left homeless as the Georgia flood receded. What it left behind, as does any flood or other disaster, is wounded lives … (4 comments)

georgia: My Town: Marietta, Georgia - Cobb County - 10/12/09 11:47 AM
Fifty years ago this past August I was born in the same hospital where decades later my children would be born and I would say good-bye to both of my parents. I remember when there was no Interstate highway, only six government high schools and the fire department was all volunteer. That was before my fellow Cobb County residents Ty Pennington, Travis Tritt or Julie (Julia) Roberts were born.
The seat of Cobb County is Marietta. I was, in fact born in Marietta and that is where I currently live. As a side note I live in the home my parents … (18 comments)

You may not feel aggressive or competitive but if you even read this much you are! Business, like life, requires at least one basic desire: To live and thrive! 
It's never over - but it is constantly changing. Making the mistake of thinking you finally have it all figured out is usually a fatal act. At the very least it is incredibly crippling and most often results in a setback that, at the very least, makes you feel like you have to start over. A body that never changes is in a state of stasis - or death. What we want is … (6 comments)
