Actually this trend which I am writing about adds more work to my day for I wish to protect all of my clients' emotional stability. What I am writing about here is the trend of listing agents placing homes on the market for sale at $20,000, $30,000 or even $60,000 below market value. And I am not speaking about REO properties but actually making reference to short sale properties here in the Orange and Los (0 comments)

While attending one of my monthly meetings with fellow real estate agents yesterday I was informed of this great program for First Time Home Buyers who are seeking a home in the city of Anaheim, California.
