sw florida: Terminate Loan Modifications - 09/30/12 11:31 PM
I thought this was an interesting concept concerning loan modifications such as HAMP, their default rate, the contrast of foreclosure, and the idea of putting the money towards paying down our national debt.

This has been a fast moving week, and here is why.
Last Friday a woman called me wanting an aggressive agent; she had stopped working with another agent who was not able to "get the job done" (her words).  After qualifying her needs and time frame I ruled out Short Sales and went for Foreclosures and Traditional sales.  She put an offer on a house which went to Highest and Best.  When she did Not following my recommendation and lost the bid she wanted another turn at the offer (the concept of Highest and Best alluded her).  The next day she got it right and got a house, … (2 comments)

sw florida: A Little Incentive is Better Than None - 04/29/10 06:40 AM
Do you really think the Tax Credit was the driving force behind home sales?  I feel it was a nice incentive (a little incentive is better than none) but didn't impact our market very much.  While cash buyers were a substantial part of our market, low interest rates and greathome values played a substancal role in motivating customers; especially the Baby Boomers, from ariybd the country, looking to take advantage of the opportunities to buy a second home in the area they hope to retire to and call Home.  This year several of my closing were done with money from very low interest Equity lines. Most clients were aware of the Tax Credit but (on a rare … (0 comments)

sw florida: Sometimes Opportunity Knocks - 04/23/10 02:29 AM
A few weeks ago my son-in-law was let go from his job. Of course we were concerned, new baby and all.  Fortunately he and our daughter had an idea it was coming, it was only a matter of time, being he worked in the building industry.  His expertise is in design.  Not being people who waloo in selfpity too long, they decided to take his expertise, experience and reputation and start fresh.  With companies moving to Sub-contractor, in order to lower benefit cost, it was the perfect opportunity for him to start his own business and become one of those Subs.  This was something they … (2 comments)

sw florida: STOP BASHING MY TOWN - 01/07/10 10:21 PM
I just read an article from the NY Times on how awful the Lee County housing market is.  This article listed detailed personal experiences of individuals who have lost their homes along with the terrible condition of the abandoned properties scattered through out the area; Cape Coral was the primary target of the reporters opinion.  I AM SO TIRED OF THE CONSTANT NEGATIVE CRAP being written in the news; not only by the national media but by our local media.  Its like they want to perpetuate this "self full filling prophecy".  Have we been hit hard by the economy? YES.  Are there many heart wrenching stories … (6 comments)

sw florida: I HAVE JOINED THE RANKS! - 06/15/09 11:03 PM
I think I have joined to ranks of AR agents who are being solicited by some dating or matchmaking on line service.  Last evening I read several posts from men and women on AR who have received messages similar to this one, although that solicitation was from a site in the UK.  The reason I say I think this is a solicitation is I am not sure it is.  Never having viewed any of those web-sites, and never having the need to (don't misunderstand me, I'm not cocky, just old), I am not sure what one looks like.
