Sacramento "Shadow Inventory" update - 08/12/09 07:01 PM
A couple of months ago, I wrote a blog Sacramento reo statistics-What does this mean and today I just wanted to give you a quick update on where were are. Has anything changed? Are more REO lisitngs coming on the market? Is the "Shadow Inventory" still out there? Well as of today, Realty Trac is reporting 5220 bank owned homes in Sacramento, CA. According to Metrolist, we currently have 1240 REO or bank owned homes either active or pending on the market in Sacramento. It appears that this leaves a difference of 3,989 bank owned homes still to come on the market. (0 comments)

Having FHA appraisal problems? There must be solutions! - 08/10/09 10:37 AM
I know I am not the only one having appraisal problems right now! It is a nationwide problem and doesn't seem to be getting any easier. This is only one of the current appraisal problems I currently have, but thought this one presented a particular problem that maybe some one my friends on ActiveRain could help me with. I represent the seller on a Elk Grove REO. My BPO value was $307,000; the bank, in all their wisdom decided to list the home at $240,000. As I knew would be the case, multiple offers ensued with the price going way about (10 comments)
