Talent and activerain - 05/31/07 03:41 PM
Greetings ans Salutations to every activerain member Once again I am amazed at the help that exists at my fingertips. For years I used to say that "Consistency and lack of talent will always outweigh all the talent with no consistency" Sounds great? I had a chance to reflect on this from one of my new mentors. She pointed out with a good sense of humor that she would rather talk to someone with a good outlook and sensible than talk to something that sounded like a Electroencephalogram that is a straight line. In a pleasant way i believe she was trying to make (1 comments)
Investments,Capital Gains, moving up. - 05/30/07 12:00 PM
Hello my fellow Rainmakers, I thought I would put a note out to my wonderful community and comment on something that seems to be happening lately in Wisconsin. Recently a buyer was referred to me that wanted to purchase more multi families. I chatted with him on the phone and told him to bring his paperwork and ideas to my office. Part way into my office meeting he mentions that he recently sold a property with someone else and he wished to purchase another with me. Put Pandora's box on the desk and open it! I asked him how many days he (2 comments)
A spring market, or is it constant? - 05/29/07 06:58 PM
Good Day, It would seem that there was a day when March would come along and evrything would be off and running with exhausting effort. We were truely cooking with gas!! Society has changed on such a whole that what was predictable is now anything but. I was talking to my friend today which is a lender. He says to get ready because the rates are going up. remember when this was something to worry about? Now this is just another variable added to the proverbial can of soup and nuts of Real Estate. December, march, July, September; every month and (4 comments)
Adjustable Rates - 05/20/07 08:35 PM
Outside of the JUmbos, and portfolio loans on multi families, are the ARM/s fading away? It seems that when the BC paper starting toleave that the ARMs were not that great of product. I would have to think this is because some of the ARM produsts were sold a number of years ago and now they are being adjusted with an interest increase. Thanks Tom BRaatz (2 comments)

Income properties - 05/18/07 12:05 PM
Hello to everyone from wisconsin. The market is starting to get stronger now, amd I have noticed that the 2 and 4 families are selling. I am having a hard time getting the single families sold, but have done about six 4 families in the last month and a half. I continue to seek out Investors that want to buy. If anyone is interested I have a legitimate, very knowlegable lender that is doing 10% down non-owner occupied 2 and 4 families. Thanks tom Braatz (0 comments)
