The End of Short Sales - 10/24/08 01:59 PM
Hello Everyone, I will make this brief, I was talking with an investor the other day and was explaining that when the government starts buying up the risky loans this is going to sharply affect the short sale market. As a matter of fact, my guess is they will both hold them and then distribute them through HUD auction to the public which will go owner occupied first.
This means all the investors swooping in and talking to the bank to get a discount, will be shut out as the banks sell large lots off to the government. No more one (4 comments)
What's next for America? - 10/24/08 01:52 PM
Well, This has been a huge year for America as far as overall change goes. Change doesn't happen easy for such a large group of diverse people. As a matter of fact trying to effect everyone in America isn't easy. We have seen the Housing Market change, The Stock market change, Gas prices Change, Spending patterns, and now we will have a change int he president that in my opinion no matter what way it goes will mean big change and all this doesn't even calculate in what might change in the world with Russia and Iran.

After doing a little research I found that the NAR has a trademark ont he word and that it has been challenged many times. None winning yet. I think the term will be dropped from it's trademark soon because what causes a trademark to be dropped is if the term becomes generic. I bet if asked 100 random people in any city what the word Realtor means the mass majority would say it is someone who helps people buy and sell (21 comments)
