Well, I missed Mardi Gras on the island in Fort Walton Beach, FL.  It was on January 19th this year, and it slipped by me without notice.  However, there is still time to catch the Pensacola Mardi Gras on February 2nd.  This is a 4 day event, that is full of fun.  Pensacola, Florida is 40 miles from Fort Walton Beach, Florida and 65 miles from Niceville, Florida.  Another hour west of Pensacola is Mobile, Alabama and they have the claim to fame as the oldest Mardi Gras celebration in America.  Beginning on January 5th and culminating on February 5th (Fat Tuesday), the streets of downtown Mobile are transformed with marching bands, floats, and of course moon pies.  Mobile prides itself on having a "family friendly Mardi Gras" experience.  There are many more upcoming events in the Fort W...

How much money do you need to bring to the table on closing day? Reminder: Keep your copy of the "good faith estimate" and compare it to the final list of closing costs. Question any changes or additions. Your closing agent should allow you to review the settlement form one business day before closing. You may want to preview a sample of the HUD-1 Settlement Statement at the web site of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The site also has other helpful information about closings and settlement. At this point, having secured the mortgage loan, you already have paid for the loan application fee, the property appraisal and some of the down payment. At the closing, you will need to pay the balance of your down payment. There are other costs that still must be paid in order to ...
