center grove in real estate: Jim's Frozen Pipe Follow Up - 01/19/09 10:41 PM
Here are some additional conditions that should be reviewed around ANY home when the weather gets very cold, as was the case recently.

center grove in real estate: Can I Really Roll Rehab Money Into My Mortgage? - 12/13/08 07:24 AM
The answer, believe it or not, is actually "Yes!"  But in order to do it, you're going to need to use the FHA 203k Loan Program.  Now this is not giving you an open checkbook to go out and fix up a property in need of help but, it is a way to help you make some necessary repairs without paying for them out of pocket.  Here's how it works:
