Foreclosure 101 - 12/24/11 08:57 PM
There's been alot of "Hoopla" lately over foreclosures since the market has been flooded with them. What exactly is a foreclosure? A foreclosure is a legal means by which a lender seeks the collateral of a borrower who has defaulted on their mortgage payments. Default occurs when a borrower fails to meet the repayment terms of his/her loan contract. A more relatable way to describe it would be repossession of someone's home or property. The first missed payment is technically considered defaul, but most lenders are likely not to begin the foreclosure process until a consectutive amount of (0 comments)
Looking for a REO or Foreclosure Expert? - 12/21/11 06:54 PM
Given the current real estate market, REOs aka foreclosures are plentiful in your area. If you are looking to find a property below market value or to get more sq ft for your money, purchasing a REO property is your best bet. You will definitely need an agent who is knowledgeable and works with REO properties. I previously worked as the Managing Broker over HUD Homes in 22 counties in Northeast Texas. A HUD Home is an FHA Foreclosure that is owned by the government (US Dept of HUD). In order to succesfully purchase a HUD Home, several steps are (0 comments)

THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE & HATE . . . . - 12/06/11 10:06 PM
Yes, This is a song title but it is what comes to mind when I am dealing with asset managers . . . . As a REO agent, we LOVE the fact that we get listings but HATE the fact that the asset managers have no clue nor listen to our opinion on value & conditon.
They often get away with paying the listing agent much less (for doing all of the work) and expect a referral fee. They even have the nerves to offer the selling agent a lower commission. I could go on and (3 comments)
