homes for sale in henry county: Henry County Rental vs. Purchase Decision: Not So Simple - 01/18/15 11:24 PM
When your primary residence is one of our Henry County rentals, from time to time you may find yourself pausing, pen hovering over checkbook, thinking, “What if this check were going to buy this place, instead…?” 
It’s a nearly unavoidable thought because common wisdom has it that buying an Henry County home usually makes more financial sense than renting it. That sounds sensible simply because at the end of the day (or, more accurately, at the end of a 15- or 30-year mortgage term), ownership means you no longer have to write those checks: you own that Henry County rental. It could be true—but … (0 comments)

homes for sale in henry county: 4 Reasons Henry County Real Estate Investments are Worth a Look! - 01/18/15 11:18 PM

homes for sale in henry county: The Not-So-Secret FICO Formula behind Henry County Home Loans - 01/11/15 11:59 PM
When anyone is in the early stages of finding a Henry County house to buy, unless they are planning to pay for it with cash, a large part of what eventually happens will be determined by the home loan they secure. Both the size of the home loan and its interest rate are negotiable, but in almost all cases, the applicant’s part of the “negotiation” consists of comparing offers from various Henry County home loan providers. So unless you are The Donald (or can supply your own wheelbarrow full of cash), Henry County’s mortgage companies will have a large say about what they … (0 comments)

homes for sale in henry county: Why a Henry County ‘Short Sale’ Can Take a Long Time - 01/11/15 11:56 PM
The term “short sale” has been misleading people for decades. Despite the name, it’s a term applied to transactions that often involve a lengthier-than-usual sale process. A Henry County “short sale” is named for the financial aspect of a sale rather than the length of time it requires. It’s anything but a shortcut.
The ‘short’ in ‘short sale’ describes a sale at a price that comes up short—is less than the full amount owed on an Henry County home loan. As you’d guess, whether a bank (or any mortgage holder) accepts such a sale is a decision that is up to the lender.
