bloomfield: Birmingham, Bloomfield, Royal Oak Realtor is back blogging!-Mike Sher - 02/05/16 01:59 AM
Feels like just yesterday when I started my 2009 Real Estate blog. Paragraphs full of optimism, realism and even some cynicism. I wrote about banks taking advantage of people, people taking advantage of banks and the system that rewarded the wicked and punished the pure. In 2012, the relevance of a short sale realtor was gone. Like buggy whips and the Rubik’s cubes, short sales were yesterday’s news.
It’s not that I stopped selling; the last few years were my best years ever. I just stopped writing. Being an optimist is not very distinctive when everyone is happy. As a big believer … (2 comments)

Missing Mortgage Payments?
It's Not Too Late
Wondering what a homeowner should expect when payments are missed? The most important thing to know is that no matter what stage of default a homeowner is in, there is almost always a way to avoid foreclosure. That being said, the quicker a homeowner does something about the situation, the less challenging it will be to resolve.
First, here's what a distressed homeowner should expect to happen when payments are missed:
30 Days Late: The lender will attempt phone contact or send a notice in the mail.
60 Days Late: The lender will … (0 comments)

bloomfield: West Bloomfield MI Short Sale Tip #40 Neighbors Do Not Let Neighbors Get Foreclosed On. - 05/13/10 08:18 AM
If you remember the old ad, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk"  you did this not just for your friend's well-being but for who ever your friend might kill if they are behind the wheel. 
Well, Foreclosure prevention is just like that. Do not let your neighbor or friend get foreclosed on.  Not just because foreclosure destroyst heir credit, causes bankruptcy, hurts their future ability to buy a home, lease a car or find a job. You stop them because when they walk from their home, you and other neighbor's home value get killed!!

bloomfield: West Bloomfield Short Sale tip #32, "Just Keep Swimming" Michigan, Mike Realtor - 02/15/10 11:08 AM
Often short sales fail because someone loses hope and just gives up.  It may be the buyer's agent, the seller, the buyer or listing agent. They just run out of steam and walk away.  The key is never give up. Never Quit, Fight to the end.   A short sale is never a sprint but a Marathon and like all marathons at some point you will hit the wall and want to give up. But, if you push through, work a little harder, try again, re focus and fight you will always reach the finish line.  JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!

bloomfield: Birmingham Short Sale Realtor Tip #31, Don’t Fail to Plan, Michigan - 01/19/10 08:21 AM
The old saying is still true, “people to don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan. Short Sales are predictably un-predictable. What does that mean? You can always predict that something will go wrong, or will be missed, or overlooked. So, it is time to remember what was passed on from one Boy Scout to Boy Scout, “Be Prepared”. So basic and yet so wise!
Be Prepared:
1. Order Pre-title.
2. Only take a short sale that you know you can close.
3. Be confident but not cocky.
4. Make sure the offer you accept is one that will make value.

bloomfield: Royal Oak Short Sale Realtor Tip#30, keep your friends happy but keep your clients happier! Birmingham MI Max Broock Oakland County - 12/29/09 12:25 AM
Just closed on my 21st short sale of the year.  This was a Royal Oak townhome that we sold for 40% of what my client owed.  My client had been out of work for 9 months and could not find any new employment.  She was burning through her savings and was scared.  The borrower could not get a loan modification because she had no income and soon she was going to have to walk from her home.  This was not in her nature for she was a spiritual person who does not like to walk away from her problems.  Her mother found me … (2 comments)

Just closed on a great home right in Down Town Birmingham!!  Yes it was a Foreclosure and yes it took for ever to close, but well worth it.   After texting my buyer about the home moments after it went back on the market. We walked through the door and knew it was a steal of a deal.   How did he know, because we lost 3 other homes just like this one because we wrote too late and too low.

bloomfield: Waterford Short Sale Realtor Tip #20, Whose Turn is it to Call the Bank?, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan! Mike Sher - 08/09/09 06:06 AM
 

I was talking to a Birmingham Short Sale Seller who happened to be listed with another Realtor (no one is perfect :) ).  The Seller happened to have read my blog and was calling me for advice.  His/her agent, a well known and accomplished local Realtor, was not as proficient in Short Sale negotiations as the seller thought they would be.  The Seller became aware of this after signing a six month listing agreement.   The problem was the listing Realtor was barley communicating to the bank at all with an offer that was 2 months old and getting older.  The … (5 comments)
