August 15, 2007Although Lawrenceville is the largest city in terms of size, number of homes and possibly even population, Duluth is quickly becoming Gwinnett County's commercial hub.  With very easy access to everything and ways around I-85, it makes it a logical choice for most Gwinnetians.  Duluth sports a very diverse, affluent population and some of the best all around schools in the state.Currently there are 984 homes for sale in Duluth with the typical home being priced at $595,699 with at least four bedrooms and three and one half baths.  With an average market time of 62 days, Duluth Real Estate couldn't be better (this is certainly relative).  With 132 homes under contract and 124 sold in June, the market looks pretty good.  Keep in mind that's less than 5 months of inventory -...

The normal closing costs here in Georgia are 2%. 1% origination and 1 %  misc. fees.  Often times the closing fees quoted a borrower change before and during the actual closing - hopefuly they are lower. This is a source of major frustration for borrowers looking for greater transparency. To this end, a recent partnership has sought to end this problem and integrate exact closing fees directly into the broker's core system early in the mortgage process. Specifically, origination vendor Ellie Mae and First Title and Escrow Inc., a nationwide provider of title and closing services to mortgage lenders and brokers, have collaborated so that users of Ellie Mae's Encompass Mortgage Automation System will receive instant and exact closing fees, directly from First Title, prior to printing the ...
