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.

MARK Z posted this 2 1,186 Views

  The Sooner You Sell, The More Money You Net In Michigan this time of the year the weather starts to change as fall is coming to an end, and winter is about to set in.  Michigan home sellers commonly tell me they want to wait until spring to put their house back on the market.  Or they tell me they want to wait until after the holidays.  My office is in Northville, Michigan, so I have the chance to talk to a lot of sellers in the Northville Real Estate market. H...

Gulf Coast Associates posted this 3,003 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.

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.

Scottsdale Homes posted this 1,160 Views

Although it's Halloween today, this is no trick. In fact, it's more of a treat for consumers who like cheap money. After cutting the short term interest rate .50% in September, the Fed went ahead and posted another interest rate cut of 0.25%. The federal funds rate is an overnight lending rate for banks which impacts among other things what consumers pay on credit card debt, home equity lines of credit , and auto loans.
