So you ask…What in the world is a Ramp Tramp Festival? Well, I asked myself that same question. A ramp is a wild plant that grows in mountainous regions. It is a member of the lily family. It smells very much like an onion and garlic mix and is mostly found in elevations of 3000 feet or higher. In the mountains, we love to celebrate...even a ramp!
You can join the Ramp Trampers as they take an all day hike up into the Appalachia Mountains to gather ramps for the annual festival. The caravan of ramp trampers will meet at the Polk County Courthouse in Benton, TN at 8am and will return by 4pm. After digging the ramps, volunteers are needed to clean them in preparation for the festival meal. From 10am-3pm on Friday, volunteers will enjoy fun and fellowship while the ramps are cleaned and the cornbread is prepared.
“Time flies when you’re having a good time” we hear. But time can also pass quickly for those who’ve had to go through difficult times. Case in point is a million and a half borrowers who have recently experienced the pain of a foreclosure. That’s the estimated number of those who, by this time next year, will have waited long enough to again become eligible for an FHA loan.
Anyone interested in buying a Blairsville Georgia home after a foreclosure has come through a tough period. The standard waiting period for an FHA-guaranteed loan is 3-4 years following a foreclosure or short sale (though individual circumstances vary). Now that the weeks and months have ticked by, this sizable crop of newly eligible prospective ‘boomerang buyers’ may soon find themselves contemplating the option of buying a home after a foreclosure.
That estimate of the size of the newly eligible was provided by Moody’s Analytics. Since they are key players in determining creditworthiness, it’s a source I trust. A chart of Moody’s count from the second quarter in 2011 (when their number was a mere 285,000) to next year’s second quarter 1,500,000 provides a convincingly uphill slope.
