Georgia did have a program called "Georgia Dream" but it ran out of funds. It may come back if they can allocate more money towards it but we're not sure yet. As for an alternative loan program, I would highly consider a USDA rural housing loan. Not only is the rate AWESOME but you also have no monthly mortgage insurance. As long as your monthly income is not too excessive and the property qualifies, it is an excellent loan program. If you have any questions about it, feel free to contact me. I can lend in both TN and GA.

The first thing you should do as a buyer is get yourself a Real Estate Agent. As a Buyer this should cost you nothing. The seller will pay the commissions. If you get an agent they will take care of getting the perk test done and any other inspections or surveys that might be necessary. Please call if I can help.

Anything that the agent is aware of that could affect the marketability or price of a property should be disclosed on any property in CA.

Michael & Ann Renyer answered:
They usually have their own contract that you will sign when negotiating and finalizing a "meeting of the minds". In that contract or agreement, they will usually tell you that you are taking the property "as is". They might (probably not) negotiate. It totally depends on the circumstances. ... more

Plano answered:
Foreclosures are usually already at very low prices or at the lowest price the bank will accept. Have your agent (hopefully you have one) look up the comps in the area and if the house is already below market then you may lose the house if you offer 20% below to someone else who will offer full asking price. ... more

Julia Odom answered:
You will have a wide variety of choices in that price range. Depending on your size needs (number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, lot size), the area you settle on, & the level of luxury you want (gourmet kitchen vs. basic, etc), you'll may have a lot or a little to choose from. There are about 250 active listings in Chattanooga right now in that price range.

Your best bet is to contact a Realtor who can help you to narrow down your search parameters. What is your ideal location? Do you want/need a garage? Would a condo or townhouse suit your lifestyle? Are you willing to do a little or a lot of fixing up? You can visit my website and do your own basic searches from there or contact me for help with more specific requests.

Barry Hamilton answered:
I think it all depends on what you are looking for and price. There are a lot of theories that St. Elmo at the foot of lookout could catch on, and the Highland Park area as well. There homes in these areas that need updateing and could be bought for $100,000 and less in some cases. If you are looking for an area that could return you more money in the long run, I would definately look into the Signal Mountain area because of the new High School and Middle School that just opened this past year, and prices are going up, but you will pay more onthe front end. Note of caution, all of these areas are still hard to flip homes in if that is what you are thinking of doing, in my opion.
Sincerely,
Barry

The Lawrence Team answered:
I have a great guy that may be able to help you, Ronnie Burk does a lot of our loans for 1st time buyers or those seeking assistance. There are many great loan officers out there however we have used him for many loans due to the great service he provides. Right now you would want to look at the FHA program, however come Oct 1st they will be doing away with the downpayment assistance. It would be wise to move quickly before this starts. Call Ronnie, he may be able to help you out 423-504-2423. Have other names if you need them. A gal by the name of Doris Adams, is also very good 423-899-6898 for FHA loans.

Please let us know if we can assist you in your home search!

Sincerely,
Sherry Lawrence

The best thing that you can do to find out about schools is to visit hcde.org and it will tell you all about the schools in the chattanooga area. As for where young families are moving there are multiple areas that you could look into, I would suggest contacting a realtor and they will be able to help you to figure out which of these areas would best suit the lifestyle, convenience, and atmosphere thatyou are looking for.
I would love to be the agent to help you out so give me a call or email me if you feel like I can be of service to you.

DK Property Management, LLC answered:
The direction I would point you would depend on your answers to a few more questions. First and foremost, what type of properties are you interested in? Are you looking for homes to rehab and resell or are you looking for rental properties? If so, are you comfortable doing foreclosures, do you prefer dealing with REO properties, or properties that are not distressed with current incomes. Are you looking for commercial or residential properties? Single family homes, multifamily homes, or even trailer parks. All are available in the Chattanooga and north Georgia area. I would be happy to point you in the appropriate direction, and can provide you lists of what is available, if you could give me a bit more information on your ultimate goals. Feel free to give me a call if you would like to talk in person. ... more
