Every day that passes, people have a need to buy and sell homes. That doesn’t stop during the current pandemic.

Which comes first, the chicken (buying a new home) or the egg (selling your current home)? There is no simple answer. Knowing and understanding your options can help you make the decision that’s right for you. There can be several advantages to buying a new home before selling your current one, so we've broken down a few things you should consider.   Timing Your Move   You can take your time with the buying and moving process. You’ll have more time to shop for a new home that has the features and location that you want. Then once you buy your new home you can move in at your own pace, and put your current home on the market when ready.    On the other hand, if you sell your current home before buying, you face the possibility of not having a place to live. There are options. You could r...

It's a tough assignment but someone has to report on all these craft breweries that are popping up....well almost everywhere it seems... in Georgia! My count is around 68 of them...and this post is about one that's not even included in that number. But on we go with another edition of The Georgia Craft Brewery Tour! The Georgia Craft Brewery Tour -- Stillfire Brewing Suwanee, Georgia So I stumbled on the Grand Opening of StillFire Brewing via a Google Alert that is set for Buford Highway. It was a VERY rainy Saturday for their Grand Opening weekend (meaning no outdoor patio use... and they have two really nice ones!) so I really was wondering if there would be many people there. Haha! When I arrived, the brewery was at capacity. They had room for one more...and I made it in. I think the...

With the current uncertainty about the economy triggered by a potential trade war, some people are waiting to purchase their first home or move-up to their dream house because they think or hope home prices will drop over the next few years. However, the experts disagree with this perspective.Here is a table showing the predicted levels of appreciation from six major housing sources:As we can see, every source believes home prices will continue to appreciate (albeit at lower levels than we have seen over the last several years). But, not one source is calling for residential real estate values to depreciate.Additionally, ARCH Mortgage Insurance Company in their current Housing and Mortgage Market Review revealed their latest ARCH Risk Index, which estimates the probability of home price...

There are many misconceptions about the credit score needed to buy a house. Recently, it was reported that 24% of renters believe they need a 780-800 credit score to be considered for a mortgage. The reality is they are misinformed!Only 25% of the Americans have a FICO® Score between 740 and 800. Here is the breakdown according to Experian: 16% Very Poor (300-579) 18% Fair (580-669) 21% Good (670-739) 25% Very Good (740-799) 20% Exceptional (800-850) Randy Hopper, Senior Vice President of Mortgage Lending for Navy Federal Credit Union said,“Just because you have a low credit score doesn’t mean you can’t purchase a home. There are a lot of options out there for consumers with low FICO® scores,”There are many programs available with low or no credit score requirement. The Federal Housing ...

Just like our clocks this weekend, in the majority of the country, the housing market will soon “spring forward!” Similar to tension in a spring, the lack of inventory available for sale has been holding back the market.Many potential sellers believe that waiting until Spring is in their best interest. Traditionally, they would have been right.Buyer demand has seasonality to it. Usually, this falls off in the winter months, especially in areas of the country impacted by arctic conditions.That hasn’t happened this year.Demand for housing has remained strong as mortgage rates have remained near historic lows. Even with an increase in rates forecasted for 2019, buyers are still able to lock in an affordable monthly payment. Buyers are increasingly jumping off the fence and into the market ...
