If you are having trouble with your mortgage? Or needing to move but you owe too much to the bank? We might be able to help you to avoid foreclosure, by executing a short sale. Short sales are one of several tactics you can use to get out of a difficult situation. We have set up a web site to discuss further, Madison Short Sale Information. There is nothing short about a short sale as it involves asking a bank to take a loss on their loan so the homeowner can sell the home. They take their good sweet (4 comments)
Short Sale Accomplished. - 07/23/10 10:55 PM
We have been working on this double short sale in Fitchburg Wisconsin for 2 months and we have buyers who are just ready to fly. We just managed to keep them in thus far, when today we received news in the form of a counter offer. This by the way is Citi Bank on the second. Many banks have the silly habit of nibbling away at the costs and then specifying the terms of the deal. Citi Bank to their credit just came back with one figure, the one that matters to them, their $$. Great easy to work with. (1 comments)

Realtors need care to maintain trust of public over short sales. - 07/19/10 12:18 AM
I joined the industry of selling homes in 1993, because i felt i could provide integrity and superior service to an industry, seemingly tarnished because of the very nature of commission sales. I have worked very hard, and to my reckoning, so have the majority of Madison area Realtors, to improve the reputation of our profession. I think in general we have done this very well, as i say in the Madison Market. However, with the advent of short sales, I see Realtors really have to work hard so as not deflate the public trust. I say this because (5 comments)

Well lost in the media gloom and doom about a bad market, is a golden opportunity. Basically a once in a lifetime opportunity to make that move and it could cost you very little extra. A perfect storm of reasons make this great timing to sell you old home and buy a larger home, whether in Madison, Wisconsin or virtually anywhere in the US. I have previously written about the virtues of buying (0 comments)
