business opportunity: Death of the Mortgage Broker? - 12/03/08 12:09 AM
Mortgage brokers are becoming a dying breed.  Across the nation, mortgage brokers are finding it more and more difficult to survive.  During the beginning of the mortgage industry debacle, many of the problems within the industry were laid at the brokers' feet.  Commonly cited reasons for the meltdown were exorbitant fees, higher interest rates than necessary and putting borrowers in homes they could not afford.
In the vast majority of cases, these claims were unfounded.  As the mortgage crisis has continued, it has become pretty clear that the brokers are not the ones to blame.  It was not the broker that … (7 comments)

business opportunity: real estate blog business opportunity to supplement income - 11/18/08 08:08 AM
Like many in our industry, I have looked at ways to supplement my income during the slow times.  The internet can make a lot of opportunities sound so good.  I spent a good bit of time exploring, searching for something.  I realized I had to define my goals clearly.  I wasn't looking for one of those deals where for only $29.99 I could make $2000/week in my spare time.  I guess I've been around too long to fall for that.  Any business, whether a brick and mortar or internet based, requires an investment...both time and money.  I spent a lot of … (0 comments)
