Who Pays the Property Taxes in a Short Sale? - 09/11/11 11:09 AM
When a home is in distress and the home owners decide to short sale, that usually means that the seller can no longer afford the bills. This includes property taxes and HOA fees. If your thinking about doing a short sale, it is really important to find an experianced short sale agent. The agent should have a team with a trusted Escrow Officer that will make sure all fees/money owed are included in the HUD that is sent to the bank. Melissa explains this wonderfully. For SoCal short Sales please contact Melissa. For NorCal short sales please contact Shannon Coe Realtor #01489731 (5 comments)
Always Remember The ones Who Protect - 09/11/11 11:00 AM
I will never forget Sept. 11. I was a daycare provider at the time. I had two small children of my own and watched 4 other children each day. When the first plan hit the building, my sister called. She lived close by and also had a daycare like mine. It was really early, we sat and watch the news...then the second plane. I so remember the feeling, I had lost my sense of being safe. For the first time in my life I felt afraid in my own country. The the miracle next day...people started to come together. Flags started (1 comments)
