Since you are leaving from Alpharetta you will be near Highway 400. Exit 5 at the Marta station. Take the Marta train the Atlanta Underground Shopping Station, follow the signs to above ground where Marta buses will be waiting to take you to the Braves stadium. The entire trip will take an hour and $4

Have a great time at the game!

Hi Natalia
A very good question because the real estate agent and loan officer you choose are so very important. Experience is critical especially if your market is experiencing a rush and multipul offers on properties. Ethics is the critical qualifier. They also must be experienced with the various processes involved with all of the loan types. FHA, USDA, FHA 203k, and the assistance and grants available in your state, if you are a first time home buyer.
Gather up lots of information here from Trulia and you will also find an article at Your-Road-Home, Consultation Interviewing Real Estate Agents, that will serve you well. If you read the articles in the numbered order you will become a very savvy home buyer. Be sure to read #9 about the MCC tax credit. The best tax credit ever for first time home buyers.
After your full of useful information you will also find on Trulia agents and loan officers from your area offering their services. A very good source.
Best of Luck, Stephen

Approval should take no more than 24 to 48 hours from the time you submit your application. Normally, the upfront monies are the first month's rent, the security deposit (usually equal to 1 month's rent) and any additional deposits required for pets, if applicable.

The rental market is moving pretty fast here. Hope that helps!

A Real Estate Agent earns their commisison the same way you earn your pay check. Imagine if someone came to you asking for part of your income that month. Would you be willing to part with a portion of hard earned money when the other person was not licensed in that area and did nothing to "earn" it.

An experienced and professional Real Estate Agent deserves everything that they earn from a transaciton. Inaddition to that, they have to pay income taxes and insurance and they is all after they split a portion of it with their Broker. There are also RESPA guidelines concerning referal fees and payments to non-licensed individuals.

Hello Courtney;

As a Property Manager/Land Lord/Owner of many rental properties, what I can tell you is this --> My Insurance Company clearly state that if I rent one of my rental homes and the tenant has , what they classify as a ATTACK DOG, and they do send out Insurance agents, unannounced to inspect the property, my Policy will be be Dropped in a Heart Beat.

So I do reject rental applications if the renter has this type of Dog. I am a Dog Lover my self, but it is all about Business.

Hope this helps.

On an FHA mortgage, HUD requires that MI be collected for a minimum of 60 months on that particular mortgage. When you refinance, the 60 month clock starts over since it is technically a brand new mortgage.

HUD is proposing elimination of the ability to drop MI.

Without seeing it, rtbs921, would be difficult to ascertain the situation, but I doubt a gap that size was designed. Especially if you don't have a similar gap on the opposite and possibly, the adjoining walls. If this is absolutely the deep deal of the day for you, consider hiring a good inspector or engineer to analyze the structure. Please call, text or email if we can provide further assistance. Good Luck!

Ron Thomas answered:
If you think you know more than the Appraiser, then maybe you should become an Appraiser:

Appraisal
How an Appraisal is made:
Visualize a series of COLUMNS, probably 4 or 5;
The First Column is the SUBJECT HOUSE and the others are COMP's.
Down the page they list FEATURES or FACTORS; such as # Bedrooms, # Baths, House Sqft, Lot Sqft, Fireplace, Pool, Roof, Garage, Fencing. Got it?
Now, in each box created, there will be a VALUE: Lets say the subject house is 915 sqft it would get --- or 0. And the first Comp house has 2500 sqft, it might get -100,000; which means that the house is WORTH $100,000 more because of the square-footage. (It is a negative number because the Selling price of that Comp house was approximately $100,000 more BECAUSE of the square footage and we have to deduct that $100,000 to bring them to equity.) Got it?

Now, lets say that the Subject house has $5,000 worth of new fencing and the Comp house has 25 year old OK fencing.: Then the SUBJECT house would get +5,000 and the Comp. house would get --- or 0.

When you go down the page, and enter everything, you get total Comparative Values on the two houses, which allows for the DIFFERENCES.

The two houses DO NOT have to be literally COMPARABLE, the Appraiser MAKES them comparable using the + and - VALUES.

So the house next door is larger, so what? They made up for that with the values.

Now, if you understand what I just did, then you will understand why;
1.) Two Appraisals can come so close together, and,
2.) Why the Bank will not listen to you about the results.

and in fact I will give you a third;

3.) If you hire your own Appraiser, he will end up with about the same numbers!


I hope I've helped.

Good luck and may God bless

I would recommend a good mortgage broker. They have multiple lenders and usually have a program that fits your specific lending needs. One of the firms that I use is Buckhead Home Loans in Roswell. Give Briggs a call - 404-303-7411. He can help you out and answer your questions. There are many more out there as well so keep doing your homework. Good luck!
