Decatur House

Man, it’s been so long since I’ve been here! Maybe that’s the good news, because I’ve been busy doing things like building this beautiful home for a wonderful family settling down in Decatur after a military life of moving, moving, and some more moving. It is adjacent to a city nature preserve at the end of a dead-end street, making for a dynamite location. But then again, most locations in Decatur are dynamite.

Foreclosures. Ummmm. Yummy! Or maybe not.

Here’s a link to a New York Times article on foreclosures that paints a pretty realistic picture about buying a foreclosed property by the uninitiated or faint-of-heart.  It can make sense for some people, but certainly not everyone, and probably not most people.  It’s hard work, both before and after the purchase, and certainly no guarantee of quick homeowner equity.  Take a look.  NYT Article
