Happy 2011!  With the start of the New Year, it's never too early to begin thinking about tax season.  As you know, buying a home can be a huge tax advantage, so I want to be sure that as a new homeowner you know you may be eligible for a Homestead Exemption.

Atlanta Foreclosures - Loft Foreclosures - Townhome Foreclosures With the first-time homebuyer tax credit deadline having come and gone, you may be asking yourself, "What now?" Fortunately, the door is now open to a new wave of savings: distressed properties. For many buyers, the term foreclosure brings up images of run-down homes with no heat and rotting wood.
