City of Charlotte, Department of Veteran Affairs Launch 'Housing Our Heroes'

The City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County and the Department of Veterans Affairs is teaming up to make sure veterans who return home from service have a home.

On Veterans Day, leaders announced the launch of "Housing Our Heroes.”

The goal is to end Mecklenburg County's estimated veteran homeless population of a little more than 200 people.

Leaders are asking employers, housing groups and citizens to chip in to end veteran homelessness in the Charlotte area.

"We are a veterans supporting, loving community, and I think this is a great place to come and live and to be supported and be accepted and then to contribute as part of the community," said Peter Safir, Mecklenburg Co. Homeless Services director.

8 Benefits of Buying a House at Year’s End

Summer may be real estate’s busy season, but winter offers great opportunities for buying a house, especially for renters looking to become homeowners, growing families trading up to larger houses and baby boomers seeking homes to fit their evolving lifestyles.

Generally speaking, your housing choices during the late fall are still healthy. October and November are great months to go house hunting. December is usually sparse, market-wise, but if that fits your timeline, you could luck out.

U.S. Urges AIG, MGIC to Back Fastest-Growing VA Loans

Private insurers are considering a request by U.S. officials to guarantee mortgages for veterans -- the fastest growing part of the market.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is urging mortgage insurers that rely on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for business to offer supplemental protection for lenders to military members and veterans. Only 25 percent of VA loan amounts are backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs -- a limit that keeps some firms from fully participating in the program, Ginnie Mae President Ted Tozer said.

Housing Buoyed by 20-Year High for Vet’s Loans: Mortgages
America’s fragile housing recovery is getting a boost from military buyers using VA mortgages as the U.S. draws down troops after more than a decade of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. About 4.7 million full-time troops and reservists served during the wars and many are now able to take advantage of one of the easiest and cheapest paths to homeownership. The program’s share of new mortgages, at a 20-year high, is also increasing as other types of government-backed loans have grown more costly.

Fall Lawn Care: 4 Ways to Say G’Night For The Winter

Labor Day through Halloween is your window for preparing lawns for a lush spring.

Although spring lawn care gets all the attention, fall lawn care is the make-it or break-it season for grass.

"I’m already thinking about next year,” says John Dillon, who takes care of New York City’s Central Park, which features 200 acres of lawn in the middle of Manhattan. "The grass I grow this fall is what will be there next spring.”

Assisted Living & Memory Care Facility Comes to Southwest Charlotte
The Crossings at Steele Creek has officially opened and I was there for the Grand Opening on July 22.  Let me tell you, the facility is expansive yet very inviting and cozy. Approximately 38,000 square feet, 90 beds, two dining rooms, several sitting areas with fireplaces and I saved the best for last, a spa & hair salon. They have a beautifully landscaped enclosed courtyard, perfect for catching up with friends & family or just to enjoy the day. The décor is similar to what some of the residents would have had at home, making the transition to living there a little easier. From speaking to the staff, one of their main focus is to make the transition to assisted living as smooth as possible. It’s never easy for anyone involved. They seem to have focused on the positive yet empathetic to the individual. Very nice!
