I have a friend of mine who just recently purchased a home receiving all this information on Mortgage Life Insurance.  She asked me about it and I had the craziest look on my face LOL.  I thought to myself OK Mortgage life insurance is too expensive to start and become more costly as time goes on because premiums generally stay level, but the policy face amount (or death benefit) is reduced on the same schedule as the debt is reducing. So, in short, the cost per thousand of coverage starts out much too high (relative to other, benchmark products), and only gets worse over time.I thought to myself now if she does die and the mortgage insurance pays off her home and debts what about leaving her children or husband with anything I mean there are other debts one can incur and this will not ...

You get that phone call...Hi I was interested in the home posted on your website when can I see the home?...A phrase all realtor's love to hear!  A possible sale of a home....you tell them ok what would be a good time for you?  You set an appointment and meet the potential buyer at the home. You do a walk through and show all the perks of the home inside and out.  They are smiling and loving it.  Oh honey this is great...another phrase agents love to hear.....You are thinking to yourself yes they want it....Is it ready to move in?  Yes of course.....  Well we were just looking we are in a lease until December.....:)  The phrase an agent doesn't want to hear :(Now you think to yourself..1.  Did I ask the right questions when on the phone with the client?2.  Did they understand my questio...

The following link is the official website of Smyrna, GA.  http://www.ci.smyrna.ga.us/Incorporated in 1872, Smyrna is one of the fastest growing areas of Cobb County.  I can tell you from first hand experience, that the local government has done a remarkable job in creating new business and homes.  It is now one of the more "Happening" areas of Cobb County.  At this point, the term Smyrna Vinings is used to describe a much larger portion of Smryna than in the past.

Silver Comet trail is 60 miles long, biking, walking, running, or skating trail.  I have personally ridden only 22 miles on this trail.  It starts in Smyrna Ga, and runs to the Georgia/Alabama state line.  You will see some of the nicest Real Estate along the trail.  Bridges and woods, birds and squirrles.  It is peaceful and beautiful.  Numerous people are on this trail daily.  The best part is no sharing with motorcyles, cars, or trucks.  You can rent bikes at The Silver Comet Depot in Mableton.  Park your car and rent your bike, and start riding. I drive from Cumming, Ga to ride.  We have 6 miles of trails at the Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta Ga. However, if you want a long ride The Silver Comet Trail is it.Remember if you want information on Real Estate, Searching Mls Listings, S...

There is certainly a glut of homes available currently, with more being added daily, yet interest rates are still relatively low and as a matter of fact, at levels of 5 years ago! Creative financing is almost as readily available as it was a couple of years ago. Yes, it is true that the subprime market is a mess and a scary element causing some confusion...qualitative word being confusion (that state caused by a lack of understanding). So what is one very large cause of this slowed market?...the MEDIA! I unequivocally beleive that the largest creators of this current situation is the MEDIA. It is the Media who have caused the Housing slow down for buyers who have decent credit... and substantially so. Mortgages are still available at good rates so it cannot be the difference of 1 point ...
