Fishers Residents - Answer Your Door

Indy Realtor posted this 1,016 Views

Due to Fisher’s population boom, the town of Fishers has ordered a special census to count every single resident in the city.  For the second time since 2000, Fishers thinks it needs to recount the population in order to capture a higher percentage of the state taxes.  The higher the population is, the more Fishers gets in state taxes; if their estimates are correct they think the population has risen to 62,000 which would mean an additional $1.2 per year in state taxes.&nbsp...

Oakland Ca Real Estate posted this 1 2,167 Views

There were a couple of real estate auctions this weekend, one in the Central Valley and one in Pinole (Contra Costa County, 20 mins from Oakland).

Basically people are buying homes at a 20-30% below what they were listed for, and for those who are interested in new construction, an auction may be the way to go if they are having one in an area you like. Elk Grove, (fas...

The sales in 2007 started off higher in Alpharetta than they were for the same time period of 2006, but, have been declining every month since April. the question is when will we reach the bottom. It's clear that we are in a buyers market in that buyers definitely have the upper hand in negotiations, but, buyers are still sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the right opportunity. So really, when is the right time to buy? The answer should be quite clear and the statistics indicate that ...

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 3,019 Views

A U. S. District Judge issued a temporary order yesterday blocking HUD's new rule prohibiting the use of seller-financed mortgage down-payment assistance programs. Such programs allow non-profit organizations, like AmeriDream and Nehemiah, to help buyers with down payments and be reimbursed by the seller. HUD, the IRS, and the Government Accountability Office had questioned the value of these programs, noting that "borrowers who used them were more than twice as likely to default on their mo...

Jennifer Mackay posted this 1,000 Views

The "Groundbreaking" ceremony of the New Panama City Florida International Airport today was very possibly the greatest day in the history of Panama City Florida, depending of course on your personal view of the airport.
