What is a Short Sale? A short sale can be an excellent solution for homeowners who need to sell, and who owe more on their homes than they are worth. In the past, it was rare for a bank or lender to accept a short sale. Today, however, due to overwhelming market changes, banks and lenders have become much more negotiable when it comes to these transactions. Recent changes in corporate policy and the Obama administration have also improved the chances of getting a short sale approved.But to be technical, here's a more official definition: A homeowner is 'short' when the amount owed on his/her property is higher than current market value.

Since 1986 Gina has  called York County home and if there is one area that has made a complete transformation, but retained the hometown feel it is Fort Mill, South Carolina .  In the beginning Fort Mill was well known as the home of a textile empire, Springs Industries.  One of the original manufacturing plants burned in the early 1980s and that space, which is near downtown, has been converted into a wonderful community park known as the Walter Elisha Park.  The park is located near the quaint downtown area that still boasts many unique shops great for spending a leisurely Saturday afternoon.  Fort Mill has grown tremendously with residential developments such as Baxter, a new Lowe's store, an unbelieveable Wal-Mart and lots of niche shopping centers and restaurants unique to the Fort...

One of the easiest and least expensive ways to change the look of a room in your home is simple.......paint.  Paint can drastically change the look of a room and enhance the appearance that you are going for.  Don't be afraid to experiment with bold and dramatic colors if that is your preference.  There are many renovations that are costly, but if you experiment with paint only to find out you don't like the color or the effect.  All you have to do is paint again.  May take a little bit of time to have to do over, but in the scheme of being cost effective while accomplishing just the look one is seeking paint may be just the secret ingredient you are looking for so go ahead and splash on some color.
