Short Sales - Lets give your bank a report card - 02/16/09 02:52 PM
What a great idea - lets rate the different banks on how they handle a short sale. Lets face it, this is the new market, and the banks need to get with it. These banks had no problem processing these loans when people were applying for them, and there is no excuse for not being up to speed in dealing with these shortsales. Ive heard some astronomical numbers on the amount of loans they were processing every week - if someone knows them, please send it to me and I will update this blog Whatever is was - it was nowhere near the (0 comments)
Hawaii Foreclosures up 174% - what effect do you think Act 137 had on this! - 02/16/09 01:04 PM
With the headlines screaming out last week how much Hawaii's Foreclosures have sky rocketed, not once do they mention anything about Act 137, they quote the usual economic woes, unemployment, tourism, pay cuts, and so on. but they fail to ask the question about what happens when you take a Realtor, who has pledged themselves to protect and promote the interests of their client. . You take that Realtor, You tie him up in the corner - because he is not allowed to help you in short sale, you duct tape his mouth, because he is not allowed to talk to (2 comments)

Hawaii Foreclosures. short sales, and REO properties for sale - 02/12/09 11:00 AM
Finally and easy way to research foreclosures, short sales, and REO (bank owned properties) on the Big Island of Hawaii. In the beginning I tried using RealtyTrac, and Yahoo real estate, but I found their numbers were so so far off track, and outdated, I couldn't even use them. The scary thing was that whenever you saw a report on TV, they quoted one of these sources! My next attempt at keeping up on foreclosures and short sales, was to manually go through every listing - one by one - and write them all down, very time consuming! I mean I (2 comments)
