real estate: Under Pressure - 01/29/09 04:38 AM
Remember the song, “Under Pressure” sung by everyone from Queen to David Bowie to American Idol contestants? Well, that is what is going on here in the Brentwood Real Estate market. I earned my real estate license in 2005 and plunged into the cesspool of real estate full force in April 2007. I left a nice paying job, although they had recently moved me so that I was making about half what I had made the year before. There were copious layoffs at my company and even though I had been one of the sales superstars of the company for all … (0 comments)

A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the proceeds from the sale fall short of the balance owed on a loan secured by the property sold. It is not necessarily about the amount the home is worth but what the owners own on the home which causes them to fall short on their payments due to hardship.

real estate: Change Gonna Come - 01/23/09 06:09 AM
Sam Cooke, the 1960’s singer-songwriter wrote a simple song that was released after his death in 1964. Sam Cook wrote, “It's been a long, a long time coming, but I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will.” That song rang loud and clear yesterday as we ushered in our forty-fourth President of the United States, President Barack Obama. Many lenders and realtors may not realize how deeply felt this mortgage scandal is for President Obama. In 2007, then Senator Obama “introduced the STOP FRAUD Act, which would increase funding for federal law enforcement programs, create new criminal penalties for … (0 comments)

Times are tough in case you have not heard. The dollar has been in a free fall for some time, real estate prices have plummeted, people are not buying goods and services, companies are laying people off and as a result 3 million more Americans have lost their jobs in the past year alone!

2009 will bring in a massive real estate and mortgage boom!  Rates are at an all time low in U.S. history (currently at 4.5% for a 30 year fixed).  It is a buyers market out there and when you combine that with massive amounts of money have been injected into the financial markets we are staring at another real estate and mortgage boom.  What a great time it will be with all the buyers buying property next year and all those homeowners refinancing to get a better rate!  Are you ready?
