Best Places to live in America

Mortgage and Lending with Brand Mortgage

Here is a list of best places to live in America.  http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2009/top100/

I wish Athens Georgia was on the list, because it is a very nice place to live.  The cost of living is good, and the music scene rocks.  Home values in Georgia have slumped a bit, which has made refinancing a home difficult, however Georgia still has a ton of affordable homes on the market.  In fact, Brand Mortgage and Gwinnett County of teamed up to set aside down payment assistance for home buyers purchasing a brand new home in Gwinnett County Georgia.  This program is not limited to first time home buyers and has very little restrictions.  In addition to the Gwinnett Grant, Brand Mortgage also has several other down payment assistant programs available for qualified first time home buyers. 

If you are in the market for a home that requires non-conforming loan such has JUMBO or SUPER JUMBO, we have you covered.

Great of you to post this and share it with us.  According to my friend Gene, native of Athens now living in Los Angeles, he agrees with you about Athens.  He may not be there physically, but is certainly there mentally...LOL

Hello Stephen and these might be some great places to live if your retired, but some people don't like small towns! I myself love low populated towns & cities!

VB ;-)

Athens is high on my list of one of the few places I haven't been, but really heard good things about.  Actually, Savannah, GA is the other one.
