overland park foreclosure: Overland Park Short Sales: Saint or Sinner? - 12/14/10 02:42 PM
Typical Abandoned Real Estate
Overland Park KS– The New York Time had an interesting article about one man’s mission in the fight to stop foreclosure. According to the article, Mark Guerette, attempted to make use of all the empty, abandoned houses he saw.
I get frustrated when I see homes sitting empty for months and months.
“Those homes should be put to good use!” I thought to myself. It bugged me that homes would sit empty for months and even years at a time. The lawn would become overgrown. A window might leak. Or, vandals would break the windows. Rain … (0 comments)

overland park foreclosure: Overland Park Short Sales: Attn: Bankers. Stop harassing Americans for money they don't have - 12/09/10 07:45 AM


Overland Park KS - Maybe this is a pet peeve of mine. Or maybe it just seems ridiculous that someone would call a debtor over and over again asking to be paid, when they have already been told the debtor doesn't have the money to pay them.
Or maybe it is the fact that I see countless examples of debt collectors breaking the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
But, no one seems to care that they are breaking the law.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act forbids collectors from threatening to sue you, but then not following thru and … (0 comments)

Overland Park KS - We had a short sale recently with a certain loan servicing company.
