Hello,

Every part of Cobb County is served by a public high school, so you may want to use those high schools near Dobbins as a point of reference. The link below offers pre-built queries of Campbell, Marietta, Osborne and Wheeler High Schools. If your household consists of school-aged kids, please consider the research available at the Governor's Office of Student Achievement to help you decide on the best school choices for your needs. Some school clusters are better than others.

By the way, Marietta City Schools is separate from Cobb County Schools. Probably best viewed in Firefox (or disable pop up blocker).

This is obvious that you do not want to indulge yourself with home selling troubles right? If yes, Well, I have a few secrets that may help you to sell your house quickly.

- The first ever thing is that you should know about your house buyers requirements, I means what they really want in your house.

- Make your house looks better with curb appeal or some home improvements. Because nobody will buy your house if there is a same house down the street with the less price.

- The second most is pricing. It shouldn’t be what you personally think that it is worth.

- The next thing you can do is deal with untidiness.

Dear, Connie! I understand you that renting for a long period sometimes is tough and seems to be overcomplicated. But, I would like to calm, that now you can find your rental property even without meeting with your landlord face to face. You will ask HOW? And I will answer Online.
Competition between different online rental services has created a very modern high-quality rental product, that allows to you search, contact, sign lease and pay rent online. Even your landlord will screen your credit check online. So you can live in Philly and prepare everything for moving to LA f.e. You will meet your landlord only when you will get your keys. So I would like to recommend you to use brand new rental services because of its modernness and time-saving technologies. Link in the reference

Andrey Sokurec answered:
Trulia and Zillow are merged they both are same now. If you list your house on Zillow in will show automatically on Trulia as well.

Yes, you can list your property "for sale by owner" at Trulia/Zillow. Before this, you must look at other options to get your house sold for a good price and without any delay.

The main reason people try for sale by owner path is to avoid paying realtor commissions of 6-7%. But it can be a false start that wastes time and extends your monthly carrying costs (mortgage payments, taxes, insurance, utilities, and maintenance) that could run $1,000 a month.

You cannot buy a home without a source of income. No lender will give you a loan unless you are employed. So forget about buying a home and first get a job.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
For your information Craigslist is also full of scams. You need to understand that landlords can legally discriminate against Section 8 based on finances. Section 8 is a form of income and can be accepted BUT if landlords can rent the home to a tenant who can pay regular market rent, why should the landlord accept a lower rent with Section 8? They don't have to. If you can pay the difference between what Section 8 pays and the full market rent, then any landlord will be happy to accept you.

Your best bet is to go to your city's housing authority and find subsidized housing.

The issue is did you sign a contract yet? If yes, you cannot make any changes because that would have to be negotiated and written into the contract. If you have NOT signed a contract yet, you need to negotiate hard for everything.

Did you bring your own realtor to the first visit or are you using the builder's sales agent? If you are using the builder's sales agent, you just made a HUGE mistake. The sales agent works for the builder - not you and will not do you any favors to benefit you. Everything they do is to benefit the builder. Watch your back.

Since it's a Federal program, it should be acceptable across the U.S. However, if you are relocating to a cheaper cost of living area, expect your Section 8 voucher to be adjusted. Example: if you are moving FROM a high cost of living area (New York City, San Francisco, Washington D.C.) and moving TO a cheaper area (Arizona, the Midwest, etc.), Section 8 will lower the amount you receive. If moving from a cheaper area to a more expensive area, Section 8 will increase the amount.

Before you move, read and follow up on what the government is doing with Section 8. There will be changes coming soon.
