Georgia can start foreclosure after 30 days without taking you to court. However, if you call the bank and tell them your situation, they will try to help you keep the house. I've seen some people go as long as 12 months without making a payment and some people lose the house after 90 days. Call them, talk to them, work with them. If they won't help you and you have an FHA loan, contact HUD (hud.gov). If you have a conventional loan, see if you can rent your house and ask the renter for ? amount of months that you are behind. Your next option is to talk to the bank about doing a "deed in lieu of foreclosure". This will keep you from having a foreclosure on your credit report. It will damage your scores for 12 months but at least you will be able to buy after that. If you do a "short sale", it is equivelant to a foreclosure and you will not be able to buy for 3 years. Again, credit damaged for 12 months. Another option is to contact NACA (naca.com) and see if they can help you. Whatever you do, don't pay anyone thousands of dollars to modify your loan. You can do it yourself by working with the bank. Let me know if you need help (no fee). ... more

Best to confer with attorney , still more question(s) than answer here in your authored statement. But if the builder can't complete the property prior to foreclosure date I WOULD assume you should request for your escrow money be returned.

Please tell me the last post is a joke? Anyone who has travelled and lived in other cities knows that Atlanta is sorely lacking in culture of any kind for a city with its population.
For nature lovers its also terrible due to a distinct lack of parks, totaly reliance on cars OTP and some of the worse polution in the US.
As for architecture and design Atlanta is also a total bust. Case in point is the Centex homes in this thread which are bland and very poorly designed and look the same as every tract home OTP. Thats why they are cheap for the area and sq ft. Although these homes have a great location it is a shame a decent builder didn't build a more quality product with better design.

We have been in Danbury Parc since spring 2008 and LOVE it. I really can't imagine living anywhere else. We are in one of the two-story townhomes.

The location is fantastic- easy access to 400, 285, and 85. You can also get to Buckhead in 10 min and Perimeter Mall in 5 min. You also have all the ethnic restaurants on Buford about 10 min away. You can walk to Blackburn Park and the huge tennis center there. You can also walk to Kroger, Publix, Starbucks, and about 7-8 different restaurants.

I've been very happy with our home construction too. The floorplan is great and we always get ravishing compliments from visitors.

There's a reason that the townhomes basically all sold out before construction.

Andrea Shapiro answered:
Hi,
In answer to your question I am not sure why. Compared to other townhomes in the area they are quite nice. I believe they may be slightly overpriced but one can always try to negotiate.I think it is a great area. I have sold several homes there.

Ben Hester answered:
Watch out. They SHOULD disclose, but don't count on it. The listing agent may not know the developer is facing foreclosure. Depending on what you are worried about, either a specific home going into foreclosure, other home in a subdivision going into forclosure from the developer, or the builder going into bankruptcy, there are different things to check and and ways to protect yourself.

What, more specifically, is your situation and what are you concerned about happening?

Karen Colbert answered:
I am very familiar with the property , other townhomes in the area, and single family homes in the area.
On the surface it is a very nice property and they are a very good builder, but make sure you have seen the other choices in Brookhaven. I have seen some foreclosures with more square footage below $300,000. While most of the single family homes are probably not what you are looking for (newer, amenities etc) they can be found, it just takes alot of looking. Also do not forget the home has to be complete by November 30.2009. That being said it is a lovely property.

Lisa Allen, Buyers and Sellers answered:
Hi Lane,

I did some checking for you. The home on Beverly Woods was foreclosed on back in June for $75,000. No mls listing as of today...that may mean that an investor bought it on the courthouse steps for cash. Most homes once foreclosed on if not bought at the steps will be listed within 2 months on the mls services. It probably was a fantastic deal that an investor with cash could not pass up.

The home on Ashford Dunwoody was foreclosed on just this past Tuesday (September 2nd) for $141,000. Again, it may be up to 2 months before it is listed if not sold on the steps.

Please let me know how I can assist you further,

Lee Taylor answered:
Leena,

I suggest that if you want to hire a professional who understands your specific submarket and who can get your home sold for top dollar in the Spring of 2008, and thereby eliminate the languish and delay that you currently have, then you should call Jennifer Barnes with Keller Williams Realty at 404-217-1347.

Jennifer is one of the owners of the Keller Williams market center on Peachtree Road and she and her team have over 50 years of experience in serving the real estate needs of Buckhead, Brookhaven and Sandy Springs property buyers and sellers.

What's the sales price trend for 30319? Doesn't matter.

What's the sales price trend for the hyperlocal submarket that you are competing in? Call JB.
