Real Estate Auctions

Services for Real Estate Pros with Farley's Legal Support Services

I provide house sitting services for auction houses to earn extra money, and so far I have sat in on two properties. My job is to open the house and make sure it's ready for presentation to Open Houses and Auctions. The first house I did was in a bad neighborhood. I opened the locked box and accessed the house and spent 4 hours in a cold house with no heat. No one came to see the property and after 4 hours was up, I locked the door back, secured the premises and left. My second property I had to sit for was way more interesting. I unlocked the house and prepared it for open house prior to the auction. People came in droved to see the property and four properties were to be auctioned from the one location I was at. When the auction people came, it was exciting. They moved about like pros. Got the bidders all registered and issued numbers for bidding. The actual auction was in person and online too. It was really cool watching 4 properties sell in just under 1 hour. I was quite taken by the direction technology has taken us. The properties sold for cheap prices and there was minimal damages to the property. I look forward to doing many more open houses. Easy work for extra money.

I'm sure sitting in a house for four hours wasn't great fun, but the activity of your second job does sound exciting.  When signings are slow, it's nice to have something extra.  Thanks for sharing.

MS. Farley,

I need you to file an ammended affidavit soon. You said you would do it on Thursday but to date it has not been done. Should I keep trying to connect with you via this site--since you are not picking up your phone? Let me know.

Do not call as I am too busy. But you are free to text me at whim. I have been unable to get to court as of yet. However, I am scheduled to be there tomorrow. I can't give a time but i will be there and file the necessary changes.

Ms. Adams. I went to the courthouse on 7/28/2010. I spoke with a clerk (B/M wearing DG eyeglasses) He said there was nothing wrong with my affidavits and he doesn't know why you had me come down to the court. He looked up your case and stated that the issues in question have nothing to do with my service. In fact, he said that as long as one of the defendants was served, the service was fine. gou
