Noticed this morning that the first of the three new houses is Under Contract.
It is the one positioned on the corner of Newton and Flat Shoals.

Is that at $570k?
Don't know, but heard they were marketing these in the $600's

We're holding on to my house and renting it out even though I could have sold this month (same with my husband's house in Grant Park). Even if I'm not making a huge monthly amount on my rent, I'm gaining the value of paying down the mortgage (on a good interest rate) and gaining market value as well. I see it is putting into savings, so when I do decide to sell in whatever amount of time seems likely, I'm walking with a chunk of equity that can then pay off the Cabin with the goal to be debt free in X years. Also, as long as I'm covering the mortgage and any upgrades with rent, I have nothing to lose.
Maybe the president will eliminate the capital gains tax!

As long as you have lived in the house for 2 years (730 days) out of the last 5 years at the time of sale, then $250k (single) or $500k (joint filing) capital gain from the sale can be exempted. So @Go_Sox!, you might want to look into this and sell the house before you've been gone for 3 years.

Twerking woman distracts drivers, causes head-on crash

Quote
Several cars pass by without incident, but as a motorcyclist approaches she starts cheering to get his attention. The display appears to cause the motorcyclist and the driver of an oncoming BMW to take their eyes off the road. The vehicles collide head-on in the middle of the street, sending the motorcyclist flying through the air.

The state EPD has $$$ for tire cleanups. DeKalb has not applied. If you'd like to make them aware of this, refer them to http://epd.georgia.gov/scrap-and-used-tires#2.
