The Fannie Mae First Look program was designed to contribute to neighborhood stabilization. During the “first look” period, only offers from owner occupants and some non-profit groups will be considered. This gives homeowners an advantage in that they do not have to compete with investors who are typically coming to the table with cash offers.
Normally the Fannie Mae First Look period is 15 days. However, there are some states that have different periods so it’s important to know what the period is within the area you are (0 comments)

We were assigned two new listings today by one of our Asset Managers. Off I went to handle the occupancy checks, post the Know Your Options flyers and install lockboxes & signs. The first property is in a nice neighborhood. It’s a nice 3 BR/2 BA, sits on a couple of acres and, although they removed all the appliances and left us with a bunch of garbage to trash out, they didn’t do any damage. Believe it or not, for our area this is normal. Keep an eye out for this (6 comments)
Over Memorial Day Weekend our oldest daughter, Moriah and her fiance, Aric came for a visit. If you remember, last week I wrote about our visit to Bald River Falls. As you’ve heard me say several times I’m sure, Moriah and Aric are both in the US Navy. She is a Hospital Corpsman stationed at Dahlgren, Virginia and Aric, also a Hospital Corpsman is stationed at Portsmouth, Virginia. Needless to say it’s always a treat when they get to sneak away for a weekend visit.
Sunday evening they decided it was absolutely necessary to make a trip to (9 comments)

About a week ago we received a call from a potential buyer who was in the driveway of one of our foreclosures. He claimed to be an investor who bought and flipped distressed properties. We chatted for a few minutes and agreed that he’d think about this place and decide if he wanted to get inside to see it.
The next day he called back and wanted to see the foreclosure. I’m no sissy and can certainly take care of myself (translates to my aim is pretty good), but I’m not (10 comments)
About a month ago we received an email from June Tassillo. June was working with a buyer in Franklin, North Carolina who also wanted to look at homes in our area. Although Murphy is only about 60 miles from Franklin, the properties were not in June’s MLS and she wasn’t familiar with the area. She referred the buyer to us to show him the Murphy properties. The Mark of A True Professional.
She wasn’t going to sacrifice the best interests of the client just to keep the full (4 comments)
