South Carolina sees a surge in its population in 2015

South Carolina's real estate market is on the climb, which is good news for anyone living in the state or looking for a home. People currently owning property in the state may find their homes starting to be worth more, too, as people from other states aim to move to the south. South Carolina has overtaken Alabama as the 23rd most populated state, showing how much people want to move into the state.

Why is a short sale beneficial in comparison to a foreclosure?

If you are facing foreclosure, you may have considered speaking to an attorney about your options. One of the options he may discuss with you is the use of a short sale. Short sales can be ideal as an alternative to foreclosure, as they hurt your credit rating less and allow you to pay back most of what you owe.

Short sales and the benefits to homeowners

When a homeowner is underwater, it means that he or she owes more on the home than the home is now worth. Where do you see this take place? Look at areas where disasters take place; if they aren't rebuilt, homes in the area will cost less due to the fact that few people want to live in the area. The same is true when a recession hits. Suddenly, homes are worth much less than previously and buyers don't have the money to pay premium prices.

What is eminent domain?

When you live in a neighborhood or own land, there may come a time when the government states that it needs some of your property to do work to the roads or to otherwise take care of essential needs. The government has the right to obtain private land for public purposes; this right is called eminent domain.
