... or shall I say, how Freddie Mac (and Bank of America) is sending a house on the road to foreclosure on purpose?  Yes, I said it.  I have a condo listed since November.  We started high based on previous sales in the complex, and later dropped the price according to the market conditions, tren...
We all celebrated the new HAFA short sale months ago when it was introduced, as with many programs, it sounded good at the time.  Of course I'd say we all had reservations knowing how anything the government had their hands in was going to be doomed... The reality is that I remained optimistic as...
This has been a topic on my mind for a while.  I have been 'specializing' in short sales in the last couple of years, out of necessity.  But it's not what you think.  It's not because of all the "get rich," "profit from short sales," and the "new commission stream" emails I get from all the compa...

We're sorry, we don't tour o...

This, I noticed today , on a new REO listing that just came up in my town. We all know the problems these days with keys that "walk away," or, doors that get left unlocked, but here is one agent's warning.  Maybe its been a bad day, but I found this hilarious:   "DO NOT LEAVE ANY DOOR UNLOCKED-Do...
Yup, they did.  19,000 denial letters in error. I thought it was strange when one client got a denial letter a MONTH AFTER we closed escrow!  Of course I got worried they used some fine print and denied it after close, refused funds and refused to reconvey.  But then, another client got the lette...
