Yesterday, I had the honor of sharing information with a great group of REALTORS at one of the sessions  @ 2010 Real Estate barcamp Indiana.
I got to meet a few bloggers whom I've followed for awhile now, see familiar faces from NW Indiana and all around the state who we've had the pleasure of doing Real Estate Transactions with and meet (even hug) some new people whom I've tweeted with:)
Thanks for the DM's & @mentions on Twitter and the new follows - I'm glad to reciprocate:).... and even more surprisingly, thanks kindly to those who took time to email me with questions and kind comments today :)

indiana real estate: Don't Wait Until it's Too late to Contact Us to sell Your Home Subject to Lenders Approval of Short Sale - 09/03/10 07:06 AM
 Sometimes we get calls from the public or even referrals from other REALTORS that ask us to help people who are behind on their mortgage payments and perhaps had an ARM come due or other hardships that cause them to not be able to afford their property and they ask us to list a home to sell subject to lenders approval of a short sale.
There is a lengthy pre-qualification process (we interview the sellers and with their permission, the lender involved) before we even accept the listing or referral.
Sadly of late, people are waiting too long before asking for help.
