Short sales are a very interesting aspect of our business.   I would try but be prepared to wait for the bank.  It might take extra time to close the deal.  I wouldn't be afraid unless your buyers are in a tearing hurry.  Short sales are a way to get a property for a little less then market value...

Today I was supposed to close a deal on a cute house on 4018 Neel St., Boise,  ID.  From the get go the loan officer seems off task.  Both the listing agent and myself became nervous when his company took 8 days to furnish us with the commitment letter.  The loan officer was picked by the client ...

Hi except for the snow the day went smooth and the house on 1408 Dearborn St, Caldwell, Idaho has closed.  It took 2.5 months since I put the first offer in and 100's of hours of work.  I found the bank somewhat frustrating to deal with but if you keep calling things can be arranged.  I had help ...

Yesterday (Monday) was a particularly aggravating day that turned out all right in the end.  The first problem not real estate related was the fact that roads were icy and it took forever to do my morning errands.  I didn't arrive at my office until 10:30 am.  Yuck!!!  Then I started to catch up ...

Wow I am on my way to Caldwell to get the paperwork to take the sister of title (brother gave her a promissory note for $10K).  The funny thing is it took longest to get the sister off title.  She delayed 2 months even though that should have been easiest.  Everyone else did exactly what they sai...

A few days I started this blog.   After reading lots of other blogs I am learning a lot.  I have new ideas for open houses and have other peoples opinions on many aspects of  our trade.  I even have new ideas on short sales (something I seem to work in this year).  Today I learned how to add link...

Sometimes the market seems so strange.  I went from Jan 2 to Jan 18 without a break doing 12 hour workdays.  I took Sat Jan 19 off and now everything seems quiet.  I haven't had more then 2 hours a day of work since then.  Strange how the market is.  Anyone else notice?
