foreclosure: Title Insurance NIGHTMARE! - 06/16/09 06:01 PM
Check out this video of a gal who has never been late on her house payment yet is being foreclosed on.  Pray you dont ever have to make a claim against your title insurance because the title insurance industry is one of the biggest rip-offs there is and the hell of it is you are forced to buy it just about every transaction.
    In 2003, according to ALTA, the industry paid out about $662 million in claims, about 4.3% percent of the $15.7 billion taken in as premiums.

foreclosure: Wordless Wednesday... - 04/15/09 04:45 PM
NOT! I cant post this pic and not

...or more importantly --- what was this agent thinking?  I can take better pics with my cell phone.  If I’m going to buy the house with filthy misquito pond I want to know how its situated in the back yard.  Show me its orientation; NOT THE POND SCUM AND TRASH.  Is it right out side the back door, like so many pools in Fresno.  If I open the back door and step 3 feet out am I going to fall into this?  Looking at it in terms of investment I … (0 comments)

foreclosure: CLOSED.... My First Short Sale - 04/09/09 03:42 PM
Cha Ching!!!  Finally manage to have a closing on a “short sale”.  In case you dont know what a “short sale” is, its when the lender is willing to accept an amount less than the full price owed on the mortgage.   A couple of years ago in Fresno the close rate on short sales was VERY low.  Overtime this has changed and now the lenders seemed to be more agreeable to accepting a short sale.  It makes goood sense to me.  Foreclosures are very costly and from my experience the offers that are made when a property is in … (5 comments)

I thought this was an interesting artilcle:
A Florida Court's 'Rocket Docket' Blasts Through Foreclosure Cases 
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Hoping to save her house, Saundra Hill Scott arrived at the county courthouse clutching dog-eared mortgage bills and letters from her lender. She need not have bothered. The foreclosure hearing lasted less than 20 seconds, with Judge John Carlin asking her two questions: Are you current on your mortgage and are you living in the home? She answered no and yes and then offered … (2 comments)

foreclosure: Shopping For OIL CHANGE -- signs of the (recessionary) times - 02/06/09 06:22 AM
Recession Forces Fresno REAL ESTATE Broker to Shop For Oil Change Normally I would just drop off my vehicle at Michael Toyota and being a “preferred customer” they would change my oil for $29.95 plus tax ( — every oil change is quoted PLUS TAX).  But when I called Michael Toyota I found out that I was no longer a preferred customer.  It has nothing to do with the fact that we drove across town to Bingham  last last year to lease my wife’s car.  No, apparently there was an expiration date on my Preferred Customer Card and my preferred customer … (0 comments)

foreclosure: Fresno California Real Estate - Market Update - 12/11/08 09:30 AM
As I have I have reported in previous blogs the Fresno California Real Estate Market has hit a bottom and at has, at least for the time being, turned UP.
The banks have been more aggressive in their pricing of foreclosed homes and sometimes have the homes priced so reasonably that MULTIPLE OFFERS are made.
Investors who were sellers at the top of the market are now back scooping up homes at bargain prices.
The chart below shows the year over year improvement in sales from Sept of 2007 through Sept of 2008.

First of all, you're not alone. Hundreds of thousands of households all across America are facing foreclosure.  
I had a homeowner call me recently that asked for help in retrieving the money she gave to a company to save her home from foreclosure.  The company that took her money did absolutely NOTHING.  Realtors© are NOT ATTORNEYS and cant help you after you have been scammed.  Report the scammer to the police and have the local District Attorney help you.
Second: Know that there is help available through legitimate non-profit orginizations.  I suggest Neighborhood Works, " … (1 comments)
