I was recently the victim of a horrendous hair cut.  It was totally uneven, hairs stuck up, etc.  In short, it was very difficult to work with. After a few weeks of no luck in getting it to look right, I decided that I had to go to another salon.  I had a listing appointment with the owner of the Family Choice Hair Salon in Lawrenceville, Georgia. It is right on the Snellville/Lawrenceville line, making it convenient to both cities.  They offer a full array of services including coloring, eye brow trims, etc. They offer really reasonable prices- a beard trim and cut ran $18.  That is quite a deal You will not find a salon with more friendly staff. The owner will pamper you and spend the time it takes to get your cut right. It took her more than an hour to fix my hair and it looks great....

Georgia Bill A State of GA home buyer tax credit bill is now pending.  HB 261 would create a one year GA home buyer tax credit for the purchase of a single-family residence with a price between $40,000 and $300,000.  This is separate from the federal stimulus bill outlined above and for Georgia home buyers only.  If passed, this credit would allow for a one-time income tax credit of 1.2% of the purchase price if purchased in the first six months of eligibility and 0.6% of the purchase price if purchased the second six months of eligibility.  Time to get in touch with your GA representatives and ask them to support this bill!

State actions just delaying - not resolving - problemActions by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and some individual states may have skewed the numbers as well. First, a moratorium placing a hold on foreclosure actions against troubled home loans underwritten by Fannie and Freddie - they control the majority of the mortgage market, now underwriting about 60% of all new loan originations - was extended through January, says Sharga. Separately, in December, Florida put a 45-day freeze on new foreclosure actions and the scheduling of foreclosure sales, resulting in a 20% drop in activity. However, now that these temporary measures have expired, expect the foreclosure numbers to spike back up. "The problem with moratoria is unless there's another program that goes out and restructures these loans, a...

When starting from prior to missing a mortgage payment all methods in this article may potentially save the home. As the foreclosure auction date comes closer, options continually become unavailable until only a bankruptcy remains. Below you will find many of the most common methods to avoid foreclosure. Most ways to stop a foreclosure come up as subcategories of these main groups: Foreclosure Workouts Let's broadly define a foreclos...

If your fall behind o your Mortgage for what ever reason you do have options to avoid foreclosure . 1. Reinstatement - Pay the Mortgage Company all of the back payments to bring your mortgage current. This option is rarely attainable. The Mortgage Company will add late fees and Attorney fees on top of your back payments making this amount much more than people are able to come up with. 2. Workout - We can negotiate with your Mortgage Company to bring your loan back in good standing. There are many options available to us to get a work out approved. Some examples are as follows:a. Forbearance - You will be able to arrange a payment plan based on your financial situation. This is mostly used in the instance of a tragedy or temporary loss of employment.b. Loan Modification - You may be abl...

Will bankruptcy stop a foreclosure? Yes and No... A home is an asset usually secured by a deed of trust. The mortgage company is entitled apply to the court for relief from the automatic stay, the order preventing creditor action by virtue of the bankruptcy. Depending upon several factors, you may be able to prolong a foreclosure until you have received your discharge from bankruptcy. Usually, to keep a home that is in foreclosure you will have to make a deal with the Mortgage Company. This is the key, you still must work something out with the Mortgage Company to repay the past due amount. This is why i say filing for Bankruptcy is like putting a band aid on a bullet wound... it may help you at first but major surgery is still required.  The Bottom line is that Bankruptcy may buy you a...

Single family detached closed 2,385 units in November.  This is a decline of 36.4% from the same year ago result and the 26th year-to-year decline over the past 28 periods.  After lags are reported there will still be less homes closed than 1998's November result of 3,141.

Video marketing popularity is growing rapidly in the real estate field. This is largely because of the fact that the competition isn't so fierce. In other words, you are getting an incredible advantage that many real estate professionals still have not realized exists. In conjunction, the increase in video popularity is because you are no longer providing your target audience with tons of boring text that they cannot comprehend, but giving them something that provides them with visual and auditory stimulation along with entertainment. All-in-all, you are making a video that you are able to submit to blog, social networking, video sharing, and social bookmarking sites. You can even create your very own podcast from it if you wish. This is an idea that is fantastic. However, the submissio...

Unless you consciously set your path, you are allowing your unconscious mind to run your life!  Everything you do, and everything you say, and everything you think, is informed by the beliefs held in your unconscious mind. Whatever you give your attention to and focus on, shapes your character, creates your circumstances, and determines your ultimate destiny.Positive thoughts, words and beliefs - MORE POSITIVESLimiting thoughts, words and beliefs - MORE LIMITATION!

Foreclosure Activity Decreases 7% in November -- Has the sky stopped falling or are banks just worn out? Here in Georgia the Foreclosure Process moves relatively quickly less then 6 months from 1st missed payment to courthouse sale. Therefore, If November Filings are down what is the impact to listings and sales. Well looking 3 months out we could see a decrees in real sale listings available combine this overlaps our springtime increase buyer activity and expected Federal controlled lower interest rates expecting to reach 4%, we could be building towards a perfect storm for both buyers and traditional home sellers.

So what do you think? Should The Federal Government step into the Mortgage business? My experience is that it is not interest rates keeping buyers on the sidelines, it cash for down payment requirements and fear of “over spending” in a declining market. The basic idea is the Treasury Department is strongly considering a plan to intervene directly in the mortgage industry to dramatically force down rates and stimulate the moribund housing market, according to sources familiar with the proposal. Under the initiative, the Treasury would offer to buy securities that finance newly issued loans for home purchases, according to the sources. However, to participate in the government's program, mortgage lenders would have to set exceptionally low interest rates, for instance, no more than 4.5 pe...

It typically happens on Highway 124. I'm taking clients to show them potential homes and it happens.  "WHOA! What's that?" they ask. What they are exclaiming about is one of the parks that make Gwinnett County the single best place to live OTP (or outside the permeter - Suburbs for us folk that are used to it).  Sure, Gwinnett County is known for the schools, which aslo known as the best in the state, but the "wow's!" come from the park system. There are 39 parks in all with over 64 MILES of soft surface and paved trails.  Whether it's the lakes at Rhodes Jordan or Tribble Mill Park in Lawrenceville, GA or the skate park at Mill Creek in Dacula, GA(there are 5 skate parks in Gwinnett County) or maybe it's swimming pools at Mountain Park Aquatic Center (of which there are 17 of) there is...

Some months ago, I had been working on a Short Sale for several months in Lawrenceville, GA.  After investing many hours of work, and finally finding a buyer, the lender who owned the loan told me that their system was so SLOW that there was no way to stop the foreclosure process and make the Short Sale happen. My client was a senior citizen who did not have work, and could not afford where he was living.  As I mentioned, we had a buyer willing and able to buy.  The offer I received in July was to close "As Soon As Possible" and his loan was processed and ready to close.Still the lender was going to foreclose. Let's look at the reality four months later: The lender has foreclosed on the property.  It has been on the market for $2,900.00 more than the offer I presented to them, and they ...

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are holding off on taking some homes back this Holiday season.  Read all about it on my Brutal Honesty Blog. The key to it is this quote: The "streamlined modification" program of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is slated to begin on December 15. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac estimated their foreclosure suspensions may affect about 16,000 borrowers if the homes are occupied. Homeowners facing foreclosure who are spending more than 38 percent of their income on mortgage payments could have payments reduced by the companies, under the program.

Mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are suspending foreclosures for about 16,000 households during the holiday season. The two companies said Thursday that they will halt foreclosure sales between Nov. 26 and Jan. 9, while they evaluate whether borrowers qualify for a new loan modification program announced last week. Fannie Mae said about 10,000 households would be affected, while Freddie Mac said the changes would affect about 6,000 borrowers who are facing foreclosure. The change does not apply to vacant homes Fannie and Freddie's loan modification plan aims to help abate the foreclosure crisis by aiding homeowners who have fallen at least three months behind on their payments, but only if their loans are held by the two companies. Under the program, the new primar...
