The shell game continues. Where is this money going and WHY? What is the tacit or express admission in paying that money and what effect does it have on the average homeowner sitting with a loan whose obligation is being paid in these settlements? Did Bank of America pay the investors do it under a reservation of rights subrogation to enforce the underlying loans?
If not, then why are they foreclosing? All evidence is to the contrary. There is no subrogation under these purchases, insurance, credit default swaps or any other contract — not that I ever saw and not that my sources in the industry tell me was ever even contemplated much less executed. The same holds true for all those bonds the Federal Reserve is holding.
Is it because the value of the bond was much lower than the price paid by the investor?

All of these volcanoes have been extinct for millions of years . The hills are composed of trap rock , which is an erosion-resistant, fine-grained mafic volcanic rock. The complex rises above a circular lowland, drained by Cottonmouth Creek, that is underlain chiefly by volcanic ash and other pyroclastic debris. Several smaller bodies of trap rock occur in the volcanic ash. A topographic rim surrounding the Cottonmouth Creek lowland to the north is formed by sedimentary rock, mainly lithified beach sediments composed of shell fragments and reworked volcanic ash that accumulated in the shallow waters around the volcano.
History of the Volcano In Late Cretaceous time, Central Texas was part of a vast marine shelf on which carbonate rocks were deposited, which the entire area gradually subsided as the sediments were laid down. The volcano formed when magma , working its way to the surface, encountered water-laden, unconsolidated sediments, which it then vaporized the water rapidly into steam, resulting in an enormous explosion that formed an explosion crater.
Explosive eruptions continued at Pilot Knob as new magma encountered more water in the volcanic ash. Gradually, an ash cone was built up over the explosion crater. Eruptions of ash continued until the mound grew above the level of the shallow sea. Ash beds, now altered to clay, occur interbedded with limestone and marl of the Austin Group around Pilot Knob; these ash beds provide evidence for subaerial eruptions at Pilot Knob. The Pilot Knob ash cone eventually built an unstable slope on the sea bottom, resulting in mudflows of ash and carbonate mud which tore up the underlying carbonate mud in places and injected itself into the carbonate mud at other places.
The subaireal Pilot Knob ash cone allowed the intrusion of magma into the mound without contact with sea water, resulting in quieter lava eruptions.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. It is impossible to put into words who Eddie Hoffmann was and what impact he had on those whose lives he touched.

After they make their bargain purchases, they lift the buildings onto the backs of flatbed trucks and haul them away to a location outside Rhome, in Wise County, and subject the houses to extreme makeovers.
They were brought in to help flip it, then were asked to return for a few more flips on additional homes. Did they ever in their wildest dreams imagine that this business, something their family has been doing for three generations, could turn them into TV personalities?

EIFS is different than traditional hard coat stucco. EIFS utilizes a thick insulation board installed on top of your substrate plywood, OSB, or gyprock wall sheathing before the surface finish is applied. Most problems are a result of moisture getting behind or trapped in the EIFS. Eventually, with enough moisture you can experience thousands of dollars in dry or wet-rot and structural damage.
My company only does the inspection and repair recommendation portion of the process. Please contact us for your specific pricing. NAHB believes that homes with barrier EIFS can develop moisture intrusion problems even when properly constructed according to industry standards.
