georgia fha home loans: Home loans and FHA home mortgages in Georgia - 06/02/10 08:49 AM
For anyone who has been paying attention over the last five or so years you have witnessed one of the most volatile times in the economic history of not only the United States but the world. Many very well educated and experienced experts say the worst could be yet to come unless .... 
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 fha home loans: Last chance for First Time Home Buyers and other tax credits? - 02/19/10 09:50 AM
At the time I was writing this post we had 69 days and nearly 22 hours left to get those contracts signed and executed. Let me explain - that's almost not enough time.
By the time you, as a home shopper, get approved for a mortgage (should always be the first step unless you truly are paying cash), find the home you are looking for, make an offer, get it back - not including the time it takes to negotiate price if that comes into play, get the inspection and appraisal done and get your loan to closing about 30 days … (4 comments)

A good friend who has been in the business for many years asked a simple question of me today. It had mostly to do with credit score and what can be done.
