mortgage: My advice for my buyers is don't give up and contact a lawyer!!! - 11/23/09 03:11 PM
My buyers are buyers with a good credit score, but they just don't make a lot of money. So, they know the homes they are looking at are going to be on the lower price range of homes on the market and with that, there is going to be a lot of competition. But, when you find the home you want and your offer is the highest, and then still losing out, then I'm telling them to contact their lawyer.
Here is what happened:
My clients had found a home that they liked and was in their price range, but this home was … (9 comments)

mortgage: Putting our experiences together to make the banking experience better for all - 12/05/08 04:46 PM
Over the past couple weeks since writing a post called, "The foreclosure that never had to happen", I've been trying to figure out how we can get our stories together and send them on to congress, so they can see the real story of what is going on with the banks.
So, I've devised a plan and it involves me starting a new group called "Short Sale and Loan Modification Nightmares". This group is for people to post their horror stories with dealing with banks on their clients' behalf. Every Friday, I plan to send a link to all the posts from … (8 comments)

Yesterday, I had to sit down with a client that I've been working with for the past four months to help her and her family buy their first home, and give her some bad news. In the beginning, I sat them down, did all the speeches and gave them the stories of past clients, but once again, they seemed to have missed the stories and now I have to sit and watch the tears roll down her face.
You see, this is the part of my job that I hate, telling a person that they have to unpack all their boxes that … (21 comments)

mortgage: The fed’s lowering the interest rate doesn’t really help you qualify for a loan - 10/03/07 04:46 AM
I had four clients call me this week asking me, "Since the fed lowered interest rates this week, can I get a
traditional loan?" Well, in a simple answer, "NO!"
I am willing to help these people work on their credit over the next couple years. But, if you couldn't get
approved for a loan last week, more than likely the feds lowering the interest rate isn't going to help you.
The only thing the fed's lowering interest rates can do for buyers is basically get them more home for their dollar. You see with a ½ of a percent interest cut on a mortgage, you
can … (3 comments)
