Short Sale Frequently Asked Questions

Short Sale Frequently Asked Questions
 What is a Short Sale?
  • A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan. It often occurs when a borrower cannot pay the mortgage loan on their property, but the lender decides that selling the property at a moderate loss is better than pressing the borrower.

Georgia jobless rate drops below double digits in April

Georgia jobless rate drops below double digits in April

ATLANTA -- Georgia's unemployment rate declined to 9.9 percent in April.

This is down one-tenth of a percentage point from a revised 10.0 percent in March.

"Not only is this the first time in nearly two years that Georgia's unemployment rate has dipped into the single digits, but this is also the third consecutive month of job growth," said state labor commissioner Mark Butler. "This developing trend shows increasing confidence in the economy."

The last time the state's rate was below 10 percent was in June 2009, when it was 9.8 percent.

There were job increases over both the month and year. April saw the addition of 3,834,100 payroll jobs, up 30,1000 from March.

Most of the new jobs were added in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, trade, educational and health services, and construction.

The number of long-term unemployed workers continues to decline.

MARIETTA: Got a mower? Cobb County needs your help

MARIETTA, Ga. - In Cobb County, like many other places, you can measure shrinking government budgets by shaggy roadsides, by miles of unmowed and overgrown highways.

To save nearly $1 million this Spring, Cobb County fired private grass cutting companies it was using. That leaves only three county Department of Transportation crews to handle more than 300 miles of shoulders and medians.

So now Cobb is asking its citizens to volunteer their services, maybe their equipment, to come out and help.

But don't grab your mower and head out on your own.

"No. We would like to have this be an organized effort," Gwen Baldwin of Keep Cobb Beautiful told 11Alive News on Wednesday.

She said volunteers need to go to the Keep Cobb Beautiful section of the county government website and sign up first.
