It's Spring....Time For New Beginnings AND Real Help For Homeowners!!!! - 04/21/10 10:29 AM
As of April 5, 2010....HAFA began!!! Already, I have two short sale clients enrolled in the HAFA program and we're actually having much success!! It's interesting to note that 90% of mortgage servicers are participating in this program that provides a viable solution for troubled homeowners (owner occupant only - not available for investment property). The main focal points of the HAFA program are as follows: Available for those who are eligible for HAMP, but are unable to keep their current residence. Borrowers who previously enrolled in the HAMP program, but were unable to keep their mortgage payments or fell behind (1 comments)
Please Don't Hate Me For Helping Others!!!!! - 04/20/10 11:27 AM
I came across a post the other day that discussed the basis and breakdown of the mortgage meltdown. Although it was an excellent post, one of the commenters caught my attention by mentioning his/her disdain for REO and Short Sale listing agents
WHADDAYA MEAN???? As a short sale listing agent in Newnan, GA (Coweta County), I was kinda put off by his comment because he mentioned that we were profiting off of a negative situation. Funny, but I NEVER thought of it in that light. In fact, I've always felt a huge sense of accomplishment and achievement whenever I've helped (5 comments)
Are You Really Trying to Sell Your Home???? Seriously??? - 04/15/10 08:55 AM
As a way to maintain (and increase) my income over the course of the past few years, I began concentrating mostly on first time homebuyers. Since a majority of recent home purchases have been first timers and/or investors, I figured that this would be a smart business move. Guess what??? It WAS a smart business move that paid off. The biggest payoff, however, has to be the many lessons that I've learned about what buyers really want when they purchase a new home.

Help For FHA Homeowners.....FINALLY!!!!!!! - 04/14/10 05:08 PM
Well, it's Springtime again and the season is filled with new beginnings!!!! New flowers are springing to life and so is a new program benefitting those homeowners who are facing a hardship and have FHA mortgages.
The FHA Pre-Foreclosure Sales Program provides help for homeowners who have experienced a verifiable hardship that has forced them to fall behind on their mortgage payments. The program allows a Mortgagor in default to sell his home and use the sales proceeds to satisfy the existing mortgage note (even if the net proceeds are less than the balance on the existing mortgage note).
