I Paid for it - CAN I Take it with me? Short Sale Questions 101 - Susan Goulding - 07/30/10 01:08 PM
I just had a seller take all the drawer knobs and faceplates. Buyer was back looking at the house and called thier agent. I called the seller, asked if they knew where they went or if I need to check with previous agents. Today the package arrived via Priority Mail - yep you guessed it --- full of knobs, faceplates and the screws that attach them. At least the seller cooperated once they knew what the contract said. My fault for not being clear prior to them moving out. Mistake learned.

I was listening to a radio ad today talking about if YOUR CAR payment is a lot more than you want to pay, or if you need a new car -- call them. They can make your car loan go away.So... that made me think about how this relates to Strategic Defaults... We've all heard for years and years -- if you buy a new car, the second you drive it off the lot, it will lose it's value. If you financed (5 comments)
Via Susan Goulding - Mountain House Keller Williams Realty (Mountain House & Tracy, CA): I called my buyers -- YEAH - your short sale offer has been approved by the bank... now what..... 1) Get your deposit into escrow if you haven't already. How do I do that? You can mail the check directly to title, you can give it to me and I'll deliver it to title or you can take it there personally. Bottom line you have (0 comments)

Is THiS a Harship? Short Sale Success - Susan Goulding - Tracy CA - 07/28/10 12:41 AM
I recently had a short sale approved -- actually 2. One in Manteca and one in Mountain House, CA Personally I have questioned hardships and been certain others were not a hardship. My opinion and the banks appear to be very different. What am I missing? You take the quiz -- tell me what you think..... APPROVED or NOT? 1) Company is relocatiing you (Wells Fargo)? Y or N 2) You are unemployed, there is MI on your property (Chase) ? Y or N 3) You have another child, children's bedrooms are in the front of the house, you worry about (5 comments)

YES! Yippee! Win Some - lose some -- a successful short sale story. We did it! Anothershort sale approved in Manteca CA. Bank of America - Equator - first approval came 3 weeks ago.

However, we got another buyer within a week, cash offer, no closing, net to the bank was higher! Whoop whoop, the approval letter came through today. There was only one change. The Approval letter stated that we (2 comments)

You may not know this, but your REALTOR® is working very diligently behind the scenes to get your bank to approve your short sale. They are faxing and re-faxing the same documents to the same departments because the bank has lost the paperwork. They are waiting 40 minutes on the phone just to speak to a (0 comments)

1st Ever Video - Short Sale for Sale in Tracy CA - 07/08/10 01:57 AM
This is it my first ever video for a new Short Sale listing I have in for sale in Tracy CA. I realize that I need to SLOW DOWN, when filming, I'm not a professional. I used my 3 year old FLIP camera, that I ran out and bought after my first REBarCamp 3 years ago. It does take forever to upload the flip video but the results are pretty cool. I uploaded the video to YouTube yesterday and have 14 views in one day. I think that is pretty good. So - watch and give some feed back. (4 comments)
