As an investor I may look at this differently than the average person but obviously assemblages are meant for buyers like me and not homeowners....

I can mark my calendar. In fact, I can almost set my watch. Every time there is a big investor seminar or other function here in Atlanta I'm going to get the phone calls. Dozens of new investors wanting to use an FHA 203k loan to acquire an investment property.Let me cut straight to the point: In...

On Friday I made an offer on two residential lots in Marietta, Ga. Asking price was 34,500 each and I offered 60,000 for both contingent on builder inspection. Today the offer was accepted and I have 10 days for the inspection. Now it's very early on the morning of 9/11 and I have many things on ...
