Via Richard Zaretsky, Florida Real Estate Attorney (Richard P. Zaretsky P.A. ): Bank of America recently held a webinar with Matt Vernon (REO and Short Sale Executive) along with some associates, on the present and future short sale programs being implemented by Bank Of America. Max Zaretsky (yes, proudly related) takes the credit for making copious notes and preparing this memorandum so it could be shared with you -
I'd like to hit on some key points from my notes that I found interesting, and I think you will too: 1. Short Sale volume is up! a. Bank of (1 comments)
Via Richard Zaretsky, Florida Real Estate Attorney (Richard P. Zaretsky P.A. ): One of the great drawbacks to a broker taking on a short sale listing is the fear and often the reality that the short sale lender will demand a reduction in the broker commissions.

There are more and some not yet invented - I wrote about one 2 (1 comments)
Via Richard Zaretsky, Florida Real Estate Attorney (Richard P. Zaretsky P.A. ): I recently saw a blog where the statement was made that, "Most banks will not stop the foreclosure process and start the short sale process until you have an offer on your home." Our experience is that this is inaccurate advice - let me explain. The delinquent loan process at the lender has evolved into a two track system. The first track (think a railroad track) is what I call the FORECLOSURE EXPRESS. The lender has come to realize that the loan mod and short sale processes are seldom successful (0 comments)
Via Richard Zaretsky, Florida Real Estate Attorney (Richard P. Zaretsky P.A. ): A new method to dismiss a Foreclosure Complaint in Florida that is just catching is to apply an amended rule put into effect by the Florida Supreme Court on February 11, 2010. This can be an important tool to delay the foreclosure and get that short sale done and the "window of opportunity" is right now.
The rule was incorporated into the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure at Rule 1.110(b). The new language requires that a residential foreclosure (note that this does not say primary residential foreclosure) now (0 comments)

Discounts for Veteran's........ - 05/13/10 10:38 PM
I don't know how many of you know this and I am sure many of you do, but for those of you who don't Lowe's, Walgreen's and there are more will give Veteran's a 10% discount on their purchases if you show them a DD214 or VA card at the time of purchase.
