Roswell makes CNN Money.com’s Top-Earning Small Cities list!

Two Atlanta suburbs have made a business publication’s list of top-earning small cities.

Sandy Springs and Roswell made CNN Money.com’s compilation published Monday.

The median family income in Sandy Springs was $115,171 in 2009, and in Roswell it was $113,750, according to the online publication.
That compares with $172,541 in top-ranked Bethesda, Md.  and Wheaton, Il., with a median of $113,517.
The list is based on massaged numbers from census data, and only two places per state could qualify.

No Georgia community appeared on the list of cities with the highest average temperature in July.  Phew…That’s good!  Top-place honors for that went to Yuma, Ariz., where the thermometer reading averaged 106.5 degrees.

The numbers are for cities with 50,000 to 300,000 residents. The lists also appear in the August issue of Money Magazine.

 Roswell! It’s a GREAT place to live, work and play!

2010 Tax Credit Countdown, The Details!

Are you under contract yet?

First time home buyer credit is $8,000! A first time homebuyer is defined as someone who has not had an interest in a principal residence for 3 years prior to purchase. A current homeowner may still qualify for a $6500 credit! That’s awesome! A current homeowner must have used the home sold as a principal residence consecutively for 5 of the previous 8 years. You must be under contract ( a binding agreement ) by April 30, 2010! That’s why I provided this handy dandy countdown ticker! The closing must happen by July 1, 2010! Ok… so… the income limits are $125,000 for a single person and $225,000 for a married couple. The limitation on the cost of the purchased home is $800,000. It cannot be purchased by a dependent. Oh, and the anti fraud rule says the purchaser must attach the documentation of purchase to the tax return. So, what are you waiting for?
