Kennesaw Ga.- Honest Car repair at Rapid Rotation! Honest car repair shops are few and far between.  A few years ago I was having problems getting my car to pass Ga. emmissions. Rapid Rotation was recomended to me and the owner, Jeff Starling, took a look at the Jag made a few minor repairs and adjustments. The total cost was about $100. Anytime you can get a Jag in and out of the shop for $100 there is something good going on.   A few days ago my wifes mini van started running really rough.  I took it to Jeff who did a free diagnosis and gave me an estimate of $450 + tax to replace the fuel injector and repair a bad oil leak we have in a valve cover gasket. The estimate was for the repairs that I need and not a bunch of extra junk.  Even though the name is Rapid Rotation, they do a wh...

  One of my favorite aspects of Kennesaw Real Estate is the diversity of price points the market offers.  There is always a nice selection of starter homes, mid priced homes, and high-end luxury estate homes.  Kennesaw is one of my favorite areas to show luxury properties in due to the fabulous construction.  I always loved the architecture and home building style this area offers.  Take a look below at a few of my favorite Kennesaw luxury neighborhoods to see what is currently for sale.     Estates at Hamilton Township500k-630k The Reserve400k-600k Legacy Park Palisades400k-750k Amberwood Creek420k  Woodbridge at Hamilton Lake390k-700k Marietta Country Club480k-1.8 million  Freys Farm800k-1.2 million  Carriage Gates450k-500k Gresham Ridge490k-550k

203(k) - How It Is Different Most mortgage financing plans provide only permanent financing. That is, the lender will not usually close the loan and release the mortgage proceeds unless the condition and value of the property provide adequate loan security. When rehabilitation is involved, this means that a lender typically requires the improvements to be finished before a long-term mortgage is made. When a homebuyer wants to purchase a house in need of repair or modernization, the homebuyer usually has to obtain financing first to purchase the dwelling; additional financing to do the rehabilitation construction; and a permanent mortgage when the work is completed to pay off the interim loans with a permanent mortgage. Often the interim financing (the acquisition and construction loans)...

Kennesaw, Marietta, Ga. Hike up Kennesaw Mountain Last Saturday in the midst of our annual snow day event, we decided to hike up Kennesaw Mountain with some friends. We met them at their home at "The Gates at Parkside Village". ** This is a fairly new complex of beautiful townhomes, located right across the street from Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield National Park.  We were able to walk out of the complex and get on the trail directly  the street. It was pretty slick from the ice and snow so it was a pretty good workout to make it to the top of the mountain.  I know when you take the trail from the visitors center to the top it is right at a 1 mile hike each way.  I suspect that it was just about the same from our starting point.View Visit Kennesaw Mountain in a larger mapWe made it to th...

Exciting changes are in store for Kennesaw, Georgia.  A pedestrian tunnel will help to unite the downtown area and make it easier for visitors to take in all that it has to offer. Crews have begun construction of the $2.95 million pedestrian railroad underpass in downtown Kennesaw, a project expected to be completed by Jan. 31.Although it may seem a stretch asking people to walk a bit farther south from where Main Street meets Cherokee to use the underpass, Mayor Mark Mathews said the project is another piece of the downtown revitalization effort. "The No. 1 concern we hear from people is that we create a downtown where people want to go. A depot park master plan has been designed to include an amphitheater in the depot area. And on Main Street, a parking garage is planned near Watts Dr...
