You really have to move on the properties quickly because of all the investors out there that are looking to capitalize on those type properties. They will put a little money in to them and rent them out or flip them. Either way thay make it hard for those who are looking to purchase in that price range. You have to be very proactive on those.

actually my husband and I found a quaint old-fashioned house that was built in 1850, but of course it had
be renovated several times and it was selling for $85,000. It looked to be in good condition, but we were
too late in making an offer and we were told later that the people that put the contract on it didn't have it
inspected.

Honeylamb,
Do you no about the GA Dream program? It is down payment assistance. Great program. Also there is the first time home buyer tax credit plus the tax credits offered by the State of GA. If you have not gotten pre-qualified would be happy to recommend some great lenders. Let me know if you need to find a house. There are some great deals in the Acworth / Kennesaw area as well as out places around. Let me know if I can help.

The monthly payments would be in the range of $425.00, based on a 30 year fixed rate mortgage, at 5% ..............this is subject to change, as rates change,

Of course, you'd have to factor in your property taxes and insurance for the total monthly amount.

Best wishes..........

The principal and interest that you would pay the bank, if your rate would be 5%, is 429.60.

You would have to add to that your monthly insurance and real estate taxes which are different for each individual property.

You can contact a Realtor in the area of your interest to get a range of how much the taxes would be.

Hope this was helpful.

Good luck.
