rhode island homes: Its worth the wait - 01/27/09 01:41 PM
I just sold my first HUD home. HUD stands for US Dept. of Housing and Urban development. http://www.hud.gov/homes/index.cfm It was a long and tedious process but my buyer got a great home for a great price. The home was a foreclosure and the appraiser had to go by Federal guidelines. So we had to put railing up,remove some mold, turn the heat on and water and replace the boarded up windows. We did this once the lender gave us a commitment letter and was confident he could close once the work was completed. The buyer had to pay for the work (5 comments)
rhode island homes: Spread the news! - 12/29/08 03:26 PM
Tell all your friends! Now is the time to buy real estate in Rhode Island! Multi units are at prices where there is positive cash flow. Foreclosures have brought single family prices in Providence to under $100K in some areas. Short sales are a great buy also!

rhode island homes: My holiday wish list - 12/03/08 08:54 PM
This holiday season here is my wish list: That every child receives a gift of love No one goes hungry and everyone donates to the RI food bank The foreclosures start declining Our leaders in RI get the spending under control and balance the budget Our unemployment rate in RI drops That no one has to stand on the street corner begging for money That our local animal shelters are busy because pets make great holiday gifts And lastly all children up for adoption in RI find a safe and loving home.

rhode island homes: Fannie Mae To Suspend Foreclosures Until January 2009 - 11/26/08 11:25 AM
Fannie mae has sent a notice to its lenders and attorneys that all Foreclosures on Fannie Mae backed loans will be suspended until 2009. This is being done while the Federal Government streamline modification program is being implemented. The streamline program takes effect on December 15, 2008. If you know any one facing foreclosure please ask them to call their lender to see if they have a Fannie Mae backed loan. I have already helped one family with this. Happy Thanksgiving Chet Szafranski Keller Williams Realty
