One of the advantages of buying a HUD house with FHA financing is that you don't have to get an appraisal. HUD's already taken care of that for you and very graciously agreed to sell the house at exactly that price. So you won't need to worry so much about the difference between an appraisal and ...
First things first, I owe the Hamilton County Department of Education an apology. This afternoon, when I got the come-get-your-kid robo-call, I *totally* rolled my eyes. Yeah, right, whatever! was my thought. They were right, I was wrong. So I thought I'd take this opportunity to slip a little fl...
East Ridge is not known as a hotbed of progressive ideas and great housing but city officials are setting out to change that while capturing hearts and minds with a new public relations campaign starting soon. The Come Home to East Ridge ummm, Welcome to the New East Ridge errr, There's More to E...
If you are coming from downtown Chattanooga, cresting the hill on MLK going toward Highland Park & Missionary Ridge, this is what you'll see. I will not even pretend that I get up all raring to go and take photos of the scenic city. I have a child who goes to school at Brown Academy right there i...

Even though it's cold outside, baby, it's warm inside the carousel at Coolidge Park in North Chattanooga. One dollar per person per ride and it even accepts credit cards. Interested in the history of the grand old lady? Click here. Check out this link to see current operating hours for the carou...
{{You're gonna have to hang in there with me, this one definitely gets filed under 'boring but important'}} Today, HUD announced new rules for FHA mortgages that will go into effect in the near future ("summer" whatever that may mean). Those who don't eat, breathe, and live real estate finance li...
OK, so I'm not going to get into the whole 'I'm-a-taxpayer-so-it-isn't-really-free' debate. The fact of the matter is that this is the closest to a free ride that you're ever going to find.  What are you talking about, Jules? Why, the Homebuyer Tax Credit, of course! Time is running out to take a...
Take a moment today to reflect on just how far we've come from the 1960's and the days of Jim Crow. The fact remains that we have not come far enough, MLK's dream is being realized but true racial equality is still a long way off. "The Negroes of America had taken the President, the press and the...
