Tales of a Las Vegas REO Agent Part 5!!!!! - 12/28/08 04:01 PM
Since the last post I finally got it with IndyMac Federal Bank. This was after paying the 900 plus dollars for the default school training for them. They hit me to two properties, so we're off and running with them. Not sure what going to happen to them with the whole FDIC deal however so I wouldn't be surprised if that relationship doesn't last long. One of my clients haven't issued out any new listings in the past 3 months. I called them and they haven't been getting any new properties from their clients, so they don't have anything to issue out (3 comments)

You have to pay the late / extention penalties not closing an REO deal on time!!!!! - 12/28/08 12:58 PM

The problem that I'm seeing is that EVERY SINGLE TIME the buyers don't want to pay the penalties for closing late!!! Just about every bank has it in their addendum/counter offer that if the buyer doesn't close on time, then they have to pay both an extension fee and per diam until they actually close the deal. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO ON THE BUYER SIDE IS CAUSING THE DELAY. IT CAN BE THE BUYER, BUYER'S (15 comments)
The Truth about Floor Time - 12/25/08 03:47 PM
So, we all know what floor time is. You sit at the office front desk and answer the phone in hope of catching a buyer call and converting that into a closed sales transaction. But most of us never think about what actually makes that phone ring and who's best interest it's in! To get that phone to ring, most company either require that you put 'COMPANY" signs up on your listings with the company phone number or the offer "FREE SIGNS" to you the agent to place on your listings. Remember nothing in this world is FREE! Those signs have (7 comments)

Economic Bailout for the BIG 3!!!!!! I beg to differ. - 12/04/08 03:44 AM
I'm sitting here watching Larry King Live and he's interviewing UAW workers and a local chapter president. Here's what's bugging me about the whole big 3 bailout.
