Are you worried your home may be going to foreclosure?

 Has anyone completed a recent short sale with Chase.  I just want to say how slow the process is.  It seems when in the past when there were thousands more short sales Chase was more efficient.  It has been a slow process when Chase asks for one thing from me . . . a week goes by . . . asks for ...

There seems to be a difference of opinion regarding the amount of time you have to present an offer to your seller.  Here is the scenario . . . On morning of October 7, 2016 called listing agent and asked if any offers for a particular property.  Seller said yes, offer deadline is Saturday Octobe...
 My first transaction was in 2005, of course I had no idea that it was the beginning of a downward spiral of a collapsed market but that is for another blog.  I had my license for 2 weeks and then it happened. I was working at a law firm full time and just got my license when one of the attorneys...
