How FAR would you go? Really I mean - HOW FAR _ as in distance..... Today I was reading a blog.. the agent who posted it stated " I can help you buy or sell in San Joaquin, Alameda, Stanislaus, Merced, Sacramento and Contra Costa Counties. Cities include.... Tracy, Oakland, Sacramento, Mountain House, Brentwood, Merced and Modesto" Here's my issue - this is about 200 square miles from point A to point B. This was written by a SINGLE agent, not a team, not an office, etc. So this begs my question am I lazy that I won't extend myself (40 comments)

I am NOT an AMBULANCE CHASER! What to do when I know YOU ARE IN DEFAULT? Susan Goulding, Tracy & Mountain House CA - 08/07/10 06:51 PM

Should I Sell My House - or wait? Reason 2 - Tracy & Mountain House, CA - 08/07/10 06:32 PM
Should I sell my house or wait? You can read reason 1 here... Now on to REASON 2 If you are facing foreclosure. The bank has filed a Notice of Default, it is a very good time to sell. A short sale may protect you in a lot of ways. You have some control on the loss. A 1099 will be issued, the amount of the 1099 can be significantly more if your property is sold at Auction than if you sell it via a short sale. Inventory is very low, so securing an acceptable offer could happen very quickly. (2 comments)
