"Bird Dogs", Assignment Fees and Greed - 05/28/08 12:43 PM
Okay - let's start this one out the easy way. If you are a "bird dog", "locator", "consultant" or whatever name you use to call your unlicensed, uninsured, no background check business I don't care if you like my words, ever recommend my company to your "clients" or want to get in my face for what I have said for years and will say again and again so long as it holds true. Your greedy numbers and fees are a bane to this industry and I want you OUT. Oh you tee. OUT. Your fees blow deals and make the buyers (4 comments)
Subordinate Lien Foreclosures - Quick Clarification - 05/21/08 12:58 PM
It comes up often, "can the second mortgage holder foreclose?" Yes - but it's not so simple. In order for a subordinate lien holder such as a second or third mortgage to foreclose they must first satisfy the superior encumbrances. In plain English if I loaned a home owner $150,000 against their $250,000 home and someone else comes along and loans them the other $100,000 they did not buy the first rights to the home. I have those. If the borrower is not satisfying their loan then don't really have much choice but to file a judgment and take the borrowers (8 comments)

Seller's Agent To Me: Your Services Are Horrible, You Don't Communicate, I Will Never Recommend Your Company - 05/09/08 12:23 PM
This is a story based on actual events and a listing agent who thinks my company, my service and my employee stink. My company and my service do not stink but the situation certainly does. Because of major federal laws against sharing private information I have to just take the heat ;) This is not a "rant" about a situation but rather a look behind the scenes at why one agent, based on one incident, made a sweeping negative judgment. It is also an invitation for comments so I can better serve the entire industry while avoiding the rare circumstance such (9 comments)
