All About Homeowners Insurance Everybody who owns a home should get insurance on their property, and everyone who has a mortgage on their home MUST get an insurance policy. The lender will force you to carry a policy that covers fire and hazard insurance in order to protect their investment. In places like Florida you will also be required to take out windstorm insurance (i.e. protection against hurricanes). If you don't take out your own policy, the lender will take one out for you (which will be more expensive than the one you would have gotten) and bill you for it. If you don't pay what they bill you for insurance the lender can foreclose on your home so, the bottom line is that you should shop around and take out your own homeowners insurance.|Homeowners insurance policies are broke...

  Saluda NC's Seventh Annual Arts and Music Festival will ne held next Saturday, May 15, 2010 from 10:am to 5:00pm. It will be all along Main Street, in the little town that time literally forgot. This is the most unique artist community and the town is small and friendly. The stores downtown are very ecclectic and you will have some rare finds coming to Saluda. And did I mention the food is fantastic? There are several great places to eat, so just show up and waunder around. This year is the first juried art show, so the artwork you will be seeing should be top notch. Enjoy the King Pup Radio Show with Phil and Gaye Johnson, a radio show performing from the Pavilion at McCreery Park starting at 12pm. Bring your kids and visit the Childrens Tent, so that they can create their own art. ...

The small town of Saluda sits at the top of the Saluda Grade amongst gorgeous natural scenery that offers a welcome retreat from the quick-paced lifestyle of the big city. The city goes out of its way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for local artisans. That's why so many art galleries dot the landscape. Theater and music are also mainstays in the local art scene. With places like the Flat Rock Playhouse, Tosh's Whistle Stop Cafe and the Purple Onion, anyone can take a moment to enjoy fine performances from local actors and musicians. The cozy environment that Saluda provides encourages couples to stay and raise their families here. If you want to raise your family outside the hectic rat race of a big city, or if you just feel the need to get away, Saluda real estate is a great ...
