On May the 8th the homeowners at The Woods Townhomes met for their annual meeting.  The usual things were discussed such making sure everyone pays their dues and what the money goes for, people letting their pets have "accidents" in the common area where the children play, children leaving their toys unattended, cars speeding through the neighborhood, etc.  This was a good group of people who care for each other and the value of their property.  Not everyone agreed on how to handle each item, but people were respectful of each other's views and decisions were made. One comment was made about the condition of the gazebo where the mail was delivered.  It was not really in that bad of shape, but a few spots needed painting and a board needed to be replaced.  Everyone agreed that this was a...

Every year we have this fabulous Golf Tournament that takes place in Hoover Alabama.  It was originally started by the Bruno family back in 1992 as a way for the owners of the very successful Bruno's grocery store to give back to the community. For many years it was called the Brunos Memorial Classic in honor of Angelo and Ronald Bruno.  In 2005 Regions Financial Corporation became the "Title Sponsor" so now its referred to as the Regions Charity Classic. Since this is a Champions Tour Event, there are many big names playing and worth seeing.  Tickets are available and not too expensive. There are over 1200 volunteers working the event and all the money raised goes to charity.  The Bruno's is close to donating 10 million to Alabama Charities. Parking is easy - just go to the Hoover Met ...

Lake Crest, a neighborhood conveniently located between Shades Crest Road and HWY 150 in Hoover is a great place to live.  Every time I drive through there, people are out walking their dog, or mowing the grass and everybody seems very friendly.  Houses range from the Lake Crest Townhomes to large homes on the Lake.  Many homes have spectacular views. The numbers are in for April.  Three homes sold in the Lake Crest neighborhhod in April 2008.  Two of them were in the Oakmere section.  Click Here for detailed information on those that sold.

The Word Is Out!! Birmingham is a great place to Buy Real Estate.  According to CNNMoney.com, Birmingham was #3 in its list of the 10 Fastest Growing Markets in the US.  Birmingham is expected to see appreciation of approximately 2.7% over the next year - as opposed to a decrease in prices as predicted in other markets.  Isn't it great to hear some GOOD NEWS for a change. Birmingham is a Great Place to Live and Buy Real Estate. If you would like to search for a home to buy in the Greater Birmingham area, visit my website at www.ToniBird.com.

 Spring is here and as I drive around the city, I see so many beautiful sites and a lot of beautifully landscaped yards.  When you see a great yard, it makes the house look even better.  You think, Wow, I'd like to live there.  A well landscaped yard even makes you feel better.  In this time where eveyone is so stressed out, it is a great idea to spend some time improving our surroundings.  I putter in my yard and love it.  Yesterday we planted the second round of annuals, which add color to the perenials that are also beginning to bloom.  I still need a few more plants to fill in a few bare holes, but by next week, we'll be done and can enjoy being outside.  Actually I already enjoy it. I like the different textures of different plants and leaves.  Each year I have figured out - by tri...

In the news we've been bombarded with talk of people's payments going up on their adjustable rate mortgages - this is seen as one reason why people are loosing their homes to foreclosure.  Adjustable rate mortgages are nothing new.  In fact the same thing happened back in the 80's when rates went up and people couldn't afford their payments. There are basically three types of loans used to buy homes - fixed rate, adjustable rate and interest only.  The fixed rate loan is based on what the current rate is and your loan repayment amount is set at the same amount for the life of the loan.  The payment includes an amount that pays down the principal (the amount you borrower) and the interest that accrued on that principal balance. The more payments you make, the less you owe on the loan so ...
