Having fun with YOUR Foreclosure.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

With this appropriate soundtrack, we start here...

If you weren't too good in vocabulary and had an inkling to go into Real Estate soon after, the above title gives you a decent idea of what an oxymoron is.  Let's face it, can you really have fun when the four walls and roof above your skull are soon to be gone?  Or, are threatened to be such??

Well, I think I can.  At least, I'll give it a damn shot.

Consider this post a way to make what would have been a rather negative life experience, and teeter it to perhaps being an enlightening one. 

Chop down that tree, my friend.

There's nothing like sleeping in the streets.  You get to know people.  You get to know habits.  You get to know Mother Earth.  And you get to know, truly know, how much fun it can be not to be able to use a plunger when you go numero dose after a long night of Pepper Jack Cheese, Mickey's 40 oz. Malts & Hot Wings from your Local Pub.

That's enlightenment.  That's not giving a shit when you are shitting.  To an extent, I suppose that is freedom at its finest.

And dealing with all of that, isn't easy.  Not many can look into the eyes of a man walking the land with a backpack in hand and turning a phrase.  Your home is about to be taken and your seven miles from hardship.  It's time to rent, folks.

But you won't rent ... never again.  You'll own, like marriage, for better or worse.  You're a trooper and won't succomb to being anything otherwise.

Sure, you could give the rightful owner an Upper Decker as they took office, yet it's not prudent to "Chili Dog" the proposed competition.

Make the house spic and span and let the World know that you're a damn chime away from actually loving the place.

Saxon Mortgage Servicing, Inc ... I'm coming for you.  Because, but not only because, I want it more than you.  This may be your house, but it's my home.

I plan on keeping the Mother F#@#er

Jason, whatever is going on in your life, you need to be writing it all down because you are a talented writer.  I think a book is building.  Good luck.

Don't let the bastards get you down my friend, but if they get the better of you, then just throw the plunger away.

Oxymoron?

Jason,

Every older farm kid knows what an oxymoron is, but may never have seen one.

An oxymoron is one half of a yolk of oxen. To get one, start with two stupid bull caves. Tie the caves to something very solid, then hobble their hind legs so they can't kick. Employ the services of a sadist with a sharp blade. Distract the caff by whispering to him that the other caff got more hay. Watch-out for the sadist as he makes two quick slashes with his blade! As the caff moos to the next county, the other will be snorting and lashing uncontrollably, watch out! Before they recover yolk them together, until one dies and the other becomes hamburger.

An Oxymoron is simply one half of oxen.

Bill

Renting isn't easy after a foreclosure either, your credit has been shot and a lot of people won't rent to you... No fun at all my friend.

Sardi my friend,

Your post here is so deep I am not sure where to even start except to share what I have been personally feeling.

I am seeing in my own back yard that we might now be going through a 2nd wave of foreclosures and price drops.  Not sure how many of us will survive this 2nd wave?

More and More people are losing homes.  I am now having good god fearing Americans that have never paid a bill late in their life calling me and making hard decisions of throwing in the towel.  Wake up America we got a major crisis on our hands.  And opening another foreclosure hotline number is not going to fix anybodys problem when they are homeless. 

Great Post, you always find a way to strike a nerve in a positive way.

Sardi, Interesting word that one isn't it?

Rent:

v. A past tense and a past participle of rend. n. 1. An opening made by rending; a rip. 2. A breach of relations between persons or groups; a rift.

Don't ever lose sight of how every word, action or deed can mean something different to someone else- I know YOU won't. :)

Keep your head high until you need to lower it to ram into something- like that bull in a china shop...

Good luck brotha- here to help too if I can.

Jason - BRAVO!  GOOD FOR YOU!  These bozos (mortgage servicers) talk a mean game but if you're prepared to fight, you have a much better chance of forcing them to back down - in other words - getting them to work something out with you like a loan mod.  They're not easy but they are definitely better than being homeless and in some cases, better than renting.

Donne - Unfortunately, while I thought things were taken of ... they were not.  I grew one more silver hair as soon as I heard, but I'm about to put together a modification package that will blow their minds ... and if it works everything out, which I'm pretty certain it will, I'll share what is prepared with everyone. 

Suarez - Long time, no talk.  Too long.  Hope all is well brotherman.  I never actually took a look at the definition of renting ... interesting.  Very interesting.  Talk to you soon, I promise:)

Miljour - Never throw in the towel, even when it may be the smart thing to do.  That's my philosophy, though it probably doesn't work for everyone and we'll see how it works for me this go around.  Believe it or not, I miss you man.

Sheldon - If you smell pubes in that breeze, it's just me;)

Todd - True that.  Very true.

Bill - Truly a classic comment if I've ever read one.  Absolutely freaking classic!

JL- LOL, good call.  But not even a plunger can provide air to the suffocation that is last night's Cabbage Soup & Microbrew.  I may leave the plunger just to be a prick;)

Slaybaugh -  Why not.

Virginia - Well, I won't be kissing it unless I'm wearing barbed wire for lipstick.  That said, I believe I have a solution that is the best for all parties concerned.  Actually, I know I do.

Loynd - I owe you a ring anyway.  You'll see my digits very soon.

Barbara -  You are correct.  A book has been evolving for quite sometime.  I just need to gather the discipline to create my 200 page contribution to this world.

I'm sorry, Jason. I have no words of wisdom or life experience to share here.  All I have to say is, "Write the damn book already." The world awaits. -- Tanya in Montreal
