Family Finances – Sunk Costs & Bad Movies Part 1 of 2
You’re about to get an Economics lesson that will change the way you manage your family finances (don’t worry, this isn’t boring college stuff)

You see in economics there’s a concept known as “sunk costs”. Real simply this just means any amount of money or time you’ve already invested that you can’t get back.
The point is when you make financial decisions, or any decisions for that matter, you can avoid poor decisions by treating “sunk costs” as exactly that – a lost expense you can never get back. Never weigh sunk costs in making a decision. After all, they’re already sunk!!

Okay – enough economics – let’s go to the movies!
What was the last bad movie you saw in the theater?
I’m talking really bad – just thoroughly un-enjoyable???

So halfway through – you know, the point where you realized, “This movie is just getting worse”, did you get up and walk out OR just sit there?

If you’re like most folks, you probably sat there.


Even though the movie was giving them a migraine, most folks will say, “Well, I already paid $8 so I stayed.”

That’s sunk costs in action!!

Stop and think about it. Does wasting more of your time watching another hour of an irritating movie make sense just because you already paid for it?

(Stay tuned next month for Part 2 of Family Finances – Sunk Costs & Bad Movies)

Home Improvement Tip of the Month

Does My House Sound Like a Good House?

When it comes to increasing the value of your house, you usually think it terms of “looks”.

Does it “look” nice and new?

What “looks” like it needs to be replaced?

How can I make my house “look” it’s very best?

While “looks” certainly matter, there is more to it…
Consider this:

“Looks” may be the first thing a person notices – but you were created with five different senses.

For this tip of the month – let’s take “hearing”.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Does my house sound like a good house?”

You might not realize it but an unusual or unpleasant sound can turn off a potential buyer or appraiser just as quickly as a broken window.

Buyers are naturally skeptical – if they “hear” something unusual, like a metal whirring in the boiler room, they will assume the worst!

A clanking exhaust fan in the bathroom…

A squeaky door or floor board…

Even a harmless drip inside of your septic tank can send buyers running scared!� The solution?

Shut off all the TVs and radios in the house. Then walk from room to room and just listen.

(Do this preferably during the day since not all the same utilities run at night and folks will be visiting your property during daytime hours).

Hear anything unusual or strange?

Do not just see if you can GUESS what it is. Knowing that a weird rattling sound is just the loose bolt on your furnace does not make it better. Fix it!

The neat part is – most repairs to get rid of these wacky noises in your house cost little to nothing. It is the method of addition by subtraction (of those unhealthy little noises) and can certainly value to your house.

Testimonials from Happy Buyers

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

It is really neat to get testimonials every month from happy Georgia Home Buyers and Owner Financed Clients and Lease Purchase Buyers.

Here are a few Im fond of:

This young lady was serving overseas helping the military in Afghanistan  and see saw our ad and wanted to purchase an Owner Financed home in McDonough Georgia.  She nneded a home by the time she got back to the states for her family. We handled the transaction and she had her new home awaiting for her when she arrived NO BANKS NEEDED and no long qualifying period. Here is what she had to say and she is sort of shy.

Let me start off by saying thank you to Mark! I was beyond hesitant, being a first time home buyer while deployed! Mark was always available and had the answer to every question. The process was easy and very stress free.  I will and have recommended AOH all home buyers that I have come in contact with. One key point that I  share with everyone is that, I know Mark deals with numerous people on a daily basis but he always made me feel as if he always had my undivided attention.

Ms. Wright McDonough, GA

This couple have been looking for a while and they couldnt quiet qualify at the bank yet. A O Home Solutions Found them their dream Home at Lake Lanier.

Here is what they had to say:

Mark, Pam and AOHS are easy to deal with, great price and all around good people.

Amanda Wyatt Gainesville, GA
