We have a couple spots open tomorrow from 11:30- 12:30 tomorrow for what we are calling “Twitter Thursday”…. This is our first informal meeting going over setting up a twitter account and managing that account for our Real Estate business. This is no cost but please come with your laptop if possible and have a couple ideas of a “twitter name” mine is “fund4u” but I think I will be changing it to BillBlax as I have recently found out that name recognition is valuable on twitter.
We will eventually assist all of our referral (0 comments)
Hope your week is off to a great start…. The weather over the weekend must have added to the positive media flurry that it’s a great time to BUY REAL ESTATE ~ I noticed a flurry of transactions over the weekend or at least for those priced right…. I even heard a couple transactions with 3 separate offers that came in over the weekend!
This is great news for buyers that are taking advantage of the $8,000 tax credit as well as purchasing homes (0 comments)
But the real news for the day and to end the week is that I hope you are ready for another MAJOR dump of property the next couple m onths!!! You all recall my last blog (5 lashings if you didn’t read it!) Where I spoke about the foreclosure moratorium being lifted… Be prepared and line the buyers up for the next flood of inventory and this time they know what they are doing when foreclosing, liquidating and moving property. Asset managers have already been given the green light to “SALE SALE SALE ” (0 comments)

No worries here as I have an extension- I was once told that those with extensions are 60% less risk of an audit! So I think I am going to wrap my arms around that and use it for my excuse. It (0 comments)
I hope you good Friday is off to a wonderful start. Things have been a little chaotic this week as business is booming but we have seen constant changes with lenders guidelines and I just wanted to share items that we as lenders are required to deal with on a daily basis. As rates improve the rules are getting more and more against the borrower. Sometimes I think there’s more people involved in making the new rules and changes then actually closing the loans.
I wish you all a wonderful Easter weekend and make (0 comments)
Daily update from Clark County Lender and Mortgage Rates - 04/08/09 04:11 PM
Hello, Business is booming- I swear all we need here in the NW is a little sunshine and it makes people want to buy property! I have worked on We have maintained a diversification with our lending options for investors, first time home buyers and Jumbo loans and have seen a mix of all the last couple weeks. The moratorium on foreclosure was in place from January- March so we will see more homes being foreclosed which will increase the supply of affordable homes. The last couple weeks I have seen multiple offers on housing making an assumption that the (0 comments)
Fannie Mae owns or guarantees about a third of the nation's home loans —18.3 million loans valued at $2.7 trillion — according to recent data from the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Due to the increased number of investment foreclosures and the fact that 60% of homeowners walked from their home instead of trying to work out a modification Fannie Mae is found in a situation trying to get creative to move 65,000 homes with as much finesse (3 comments)
