I have to admit that I am an amateur pastelist from NJ who snowbirds in Myrtle Beach SC which lacks what I need to remain active in art. We are looking into Beaufort SC which has groups like "ARTworks", a group with master artists who have meetings, shows and offers workshops. We want a coastal community which doesn't cater to tourists.. ... more

That caused them to start gathering like flies. That was kind of cut off. In the face of this, the long lost relative returns although it is possible to work around the process a little bit. In this post I will explore the popular procedures to do this with Nitromenix. I've been as busy as an one-legged man in an ass kicking marathon. Nitromenix earned this everyday mention recently. Another study from the Nitromenix Institute looked at how well pros avoided that quandary with Nitromenix.

Put the complaints in writing and mail it to them. You are protected under California Civil Code Section 1927. Be mindful that this is a law that your complex has to adhere to. Also, know that not all things stated in a lease are enforceable or are limited to what is in the lease. The law supersedes. Everybody has a right to quiet enjoyment. If it is not quiet and the landlord does nothing, record it, have others witness it, call the building inspector to see if corners were cut with insulation, and sue in small claims. You can sue for the value of the apartment being less than fair market value related to noise and lack of enjoyment, all moving costs, emotional distress, etc. ... more

Hello jmow3, most likely means you can view it and use it. Are you looking for a home with a view or waterfront in 92352 zip code?

The purchase in 92352 zip code start from 125k for 1bd 1ba cabin, 149k for 2bd 1ba single family home, 180k for 3bd 2ba home.

You will need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You will need to gather some documentation for each applicant.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down up to 424k. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score or even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI) up to 424k.

You may even consider down payment and closing cost assistance for a primary residence purchase.

You could consider a down payment assistance program such as CalHFA or Sapphire Grant which can cover your down payment and closing costs. You may close with minimal out of pocket expenses. You may consider the CalHFA from a minimum 640 fico score and the Sapphire Grant from a minimum 620 fico score up to 424k.

If you are considering a lake waterfront property, you may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 2.5 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 2.5 million.

My favorite thing about Smyrna is that it remains a very friendly place to live and work.

I've lived in Smyrna for over 10 years now. So, I missed out on the pre-Nissan years. Still, it's been growing every year since I've been here. It really is the friendliest town I've ever lived in.

The food and shopping choices have increased. It's still centrally located - Murfreesboro and Nashville are easily accessed. The Avenue is just a couple of exits down I-24, and as long as you avoid rush hour, downtown Nashville isn't much farther away.

Traffic - it's not a huge deal at this point, except at specific bottlenecks at the worst times. Smyrna has 4-lanes both circumnavigating and bisecting the town - good for a town of this size. Rarely is traffic backed up on city streets. The interstate heading to Nashville at rush hour - that's another story.
