short sales: A Realtor's Poem For the Future - 10/27/09 10:35 PM
Do you think we're finally going to make it now? Or should we be continuing to  follow the dow? Are the housing prices going to still be low? Or can we start making some real dough? Who's going to be telling us what to do? Is it still going to be like living in a zoo? Or will we be living in more of a jungle? Will our short sales begin to no longer bungle?

The first call was from a past client that lives in California and has an investment property in Ocala, FLorida.

PERMANTLY.  His rental home in Ocala now positve cash flows and it is one … (34 comments)

short sales: My Personal Bank of America Horror Story - 10/15/09 02:06 AM
With so many borrowers having so many problems with their mortgage modifications and short sales, and REALTORS going bald and on Prozac trying to deal with the mess, I made a youtube video to tell my story.
 

 
I also got some advice from a real estate attorney to help others with the same problems:
Always get the name and employee number of the person you are talking with on the phone AND their supervisor's name and employee number. Write down the time and date. (You may need your phone records later) Repeat the information back to them that … (8 comments)
