There may be some homeowner pride but it can be offset by the poor quality of construction. The siding, roof, HVAC and windows need to be studied carefully. Generally the quality of the finish work is not outstanding and the material used were lower end.

That was the bad, now the good. The schools are excellent and the location is very strong as well. Look for this neighborhood to do well in the long run as people improve the original homes.

Make sure you purchase at a good price and get a good inspection. You do not want to pay too much for a home in here. I only live a couple of miles away so please feel free to contact me if you would like to see inside the homes for sale. All the best, Jeff

Depends on size and other features. Prices will range from the mid $200's up. Many factors should be considered in determining value.

Yes, the loan is still around, the question is your value still around. Interest only loans are available but if your value has fallen faster than your principal pay downs, you may have difficulty refinancing. You may still qualify for the HARP program but this program prohibits interest only products.

You are right around the corner, email me or give me a call and I can quickly determine your options.

Best regards,

Hi Salina

You might try searching the owner's name or address at for any recent foreclosure notices. Please note, however, that the owner may have brought the delinquency current, but it's worth a try. Also, you might try Googling the owner's name or address for any thing of concern.

As you may know, individuals here have been attempting to act as owners and collect deposits for the rental of properties that they don't own. Ask the landlord for an ID and then check the county tax assessor's office online to be sure that your contact is the same name that appears on file there before handing over any security deposits and take any disconnects discovered in your research very seriously. A real landlord would appreciate your conducting due diligence.

That's certainly not an all inclusive list, but these are steps that you can take on your own.

Good luck

It depends on several factors, Joburke, such as price range, amenities you expect, the length of time you will stay there, etc. There are some incredible values at Sugarloaf Country Club and Sweet Bottom Plantation, for example, but Alpharetta has great neighborhoods with tremendous upside as well. If you would like for me to send you electronic flyers of some of these properties, please forward me your email address and I will get them over ASAP. If you'd like to see some soon, please call, text or email and I will arrange the viewings. Good Luck!

Why not call a landscaper regarding the grass and a tree specialist about the trees? Home inspector will not be able to give you advice on it. How can he see all the roots?

It is possible if the property boundaries permit so. You may want to get a survey (recommended anyway) to make sure.

Anything that detracts from the property will have some impact on value, Buyer. Whether it be a busy highway, an industrial facility nearby or power lines there will be an effect. Don't get caught up in semantics here. Get a Realtor on your side of the table and negotiate. Good Luck!

It all depends on your qualifying monthly income. Your total debts (including both mortgage payments) should not exceed 45-50% of your gross monthly qualifying income.
