Why not use English ? I think it means there is a lawsuit which means foreclosure. You will need to look at the house to find posted information on that house. Good Luck eh?

Tjaman2002,

I do not see a date set for an auction. The last recorded document was an assignment of mortgage back on March 20th of this year. A local firm received a certificate of title from a foreclosure by the HOA back in September. That firm put the unit on the market at $199,000 on June 13th and within a couple days it was under contract in what appears to be a solid sale.

The market in Riverwalk is red hot as buyers continue to act quickly on lower priced opportunities in the Jupiter market. Only 2 active listings as of this morning which represents a 19 DAY inventory level based on 12 month sales. Anything priced and marketed properly will sell in days if not hours.

Both buyers and sellers in today's market need to be well informed and make educate decisions. Mistakes in real estate are expensive and we don't like seeing anyone make them.

Kayjay,

Georgia Dream offers to combine a soft-second mortgage of up to $7,500 to Georgia First Time Home Buyers when they obtain the first mortgage through GA Dream. The first mortgage under this scenario involving down payment assistance is an FHA Mortgage. So no, there is no requirement that the borrower put down 20% in order to obtain $5,000.

Here are a few other things to consider. You may be buying in Dekalb County. There are other easier programs available in Dekalb through participating lenders. But if you still want to stay with Georgia Dream Down Payment Assistance, you should know that employees in some disciplines can get up to $7,500, even $15,000 for a limited time,

There are other things to be considered and I'd welcome the opportunity to speak. Please call when time permits.

Good luck.

Hi Megan,

I also agree that the refinance is in your best interest. The rate drop is substantial enough that it will outweigh the closing costs within a couple of years. On your current balance, a 1% drop in the interest rate will save you around $1,800 in interest in even just the first year. Over 5-10 years you are looking at savings of over $10,000.

Regarding the rate you were offered, I would encourage you to shop around a bit. Feel free to contact me if you want a quote for comparison, our rates are excellent at Bank of America.

No there is a waiting list for rentals and is limited to maximum of 20% but maintained at about 18% with hardship cases being permitted to rent for one year and others off the waiting list permitted to rent for 3 years. It is a residential community and not an investment community and there are also additional and progresive monthly fees for those who rent their units. ... more
