Gregory T. Taylor, Esq. 306-B South 12th St. P.O. Box 505 Murray, KY 42071 Ph/Fax (270) 761-4558 2010 Kentucky Certificate of Delinquency Update DISCLAIMER: I’ve got to start with this first. This is not an exhaustive review of the statutes and is merely for informational purposes. Don’t take it as legal advice. There are still a lot of things to be fleshed out with this but it is good to know what is going on now. The recent overhaul of the Kentucky Certificate of Delinquency laws has resulted in a few more hoops for those of us interested in tax lien investing to jump through. I’ll be referring to the Certificates of Delinquency as “liens” throughout this summary. Here is what has remained the same: 12% simple interest rate earned on amount paid for liens Interest is accrued at 1% pe...

Being an an attorney in Calloway County, Kentucky is a job that I truly enjoy.  I am a native of Calloway County and being a lawyer here at home is a privilege that I take very seriously.  I am a May 2000 graduate of Murray State University, and I have been an attorney here since graduating from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 2003. Kentucky is blessed with many great lawyers, but I believe the ones here in Western Kentucky have a great attitude of collegiality that is unmatched in our profession. In addition to my job as an attorney, I am active in the Murray and Calloway County community, serving on the Board of Directors of the Murray-Calloway County United Way.  In addition, I and my wife, Kristin, and daughter, Cate, are active in our church and serve as leaders of our...

How to Save 10% or More When Buying a House For most people, the buying their house is by far the biggest investment they will ever make. Most people also think of themselves as bargain hunters, able to find a good deal on any purchase they make. However, when purchasing a home, most people follow a path that leads to them paying full retail value for their home. You know how it’s done. You find a Realtor to show you the houses on the Multiple Listing Service, look at several houses with them and then make an offer on the house that you like the most in your price range. Most of the time, at your Realtor’s suggestion, that offer will be within 8-10% of the asking price, which was likely set at the appraised value of the home. If you’re lucky, that price is accepted. If you’re not lucky,...

Here in Murray and Calloway County, KY, our real estate market has several factors that keep the market among the tops in Western Kentucky.  We have Murray State University, which provides home buyers and renters, along with many cultural and entertainment experiences. We also have beautiful Kentucky Lake and Land Between the Lakes, which provide a great atmosphere.  Combine all of this with a low cost of living and you have a GREAT place to live. As an attorney and real estate investor here in Murray, I have noticed that home sales have slowed somewhat over the past few months, mirroring the national economy.  We have been insulated here for several months but eventually the national economy is going to trickle down to us. I have also seen a rise in the number of foreclosures and pre-f...

Not to put down the various hometowns of the rest of you guys, but Murray is a great place to call home or vacation.  We have a thriving business community, as well as great cultural and recreational opportunities.  Murray State University is the region's premier public university and one of the "best values" according to US News and World Report.  Then we have Land Between the Lakes and all of the fishing, boating, and swimming opportunities that it offers.  There is simply no other place that I'd rather live and work.  Real estate prices have not severely deflated like in many locales across the nation, and this is a GREAT place to buy a home or investment property.  We are interested in buying and selling houses in the Calloway, Graves, and Marshall County areas and would love to hea...

Murray, Kentucky's downtown transforms itself on the south side of the square on Saturday mornings in the summer and fall.  It becomes the site of the Saturday morning farmer's market selling fruits, vegetables, flowers, home made goods and even fish!  This 10 plus year tradition gives local folks a place to come, get some good fresh produce, visit and even let their pets intermingle.     Shoppers wander the area while the Cantalope wait to be inspected   You sometimes have to get up there to "pick" the right one     Fresh corn is always a popular item     Lots of fresh veggies and fruit are available     Bags are handed out for free on the condition that you will reuse them each week     Fresh Amish baked goods are available for sale     Even the four legged customers seem to have some...

ANALYZING RENTAL PROPERTY TO DETERMINE CASH FLOW THE SCENARIO Duplex for sale for $70,000.00. You put it under contract for $65,000.00, with financing as follows – 5% down, with $1,500 in closing costs, at 7.25% for 20 years. Total debt service for the year would be $5,856.72 in this scenario. Your total acquisition costs are $4,750 (5% down or $3,250 + $1,500 closing costs). The property is currently rented with good tenants for $400.00 per side for a total of $800 per month rent. How do you analyze the deal? First, some rules of thumb. For rental property, the rule is to figure on a 5-10% vacancy rate per year. If you have less than a 5% vacancy rate, you are probably charging too little. 5% vacancy amounts to about 18 days per year where your property is vacant. Second, on maintenanc...
