Who Is Giving It Away For Free, Besides Me?

By
Real Estate Agent with Solid Source Realty GA 320764

Real Estate Agent turned 'Change Agent' - Pt. 3

Because I'm a Change Agent, and not just a real estate agent anymore, and because the health of my business is so closely tied to the health of my community, I can't afford NOT to give away what I know. 

Especially when I'm looking for people to help.  

That's why I've drawn from my past work with pre-foreclosure clients, as well as the combined experiences and knowledge of my team of real estate experts, and put together an informative e-book to share with my Georgia neighbors everything that I have learned as a REALTOR about how a person can avoid foreclosure in Georgia. It's short and easy to read and understand.  

It's also available FREE for the asking at http://AvoidGeorgiaForeclosure.com, and is intended for people in distressed situations, and for the neighbors, friends and family of such home owners. It seems almost everybody knows somebody who is going through it in the current economy. The e-book offers proven strategies for anyone facing a possible bank foreclosure on their real property due to relocation or hardship. I hope it will instruct Georgians on their options, and that they will identify specific information and tactics contained in the book which they can immediately put into action to avoid bank foreclosure.  

Because I am a stakeholder in the community both as a resident and as a REALTOR, I want to spread the word quickly and without price constraint. It's too important to hold back.   

And hopefully some of them will call on me so I can answer any remaining questions. Then maybe I'll have the opportunity to review their situation and help them identify an appropriate non-foreclosure course of action based on their particular circumstances and needs. And maybe some of them will find their very best option is to list with me for a short sale. 

I'm interested to know, what other agents are doing in their markets to address the growing problems of economic hardship and negative equity homesellers?

Great job, it is very timely information and even folks who are not in the distressed situation should probably educate themselves about it.  As you said there always seems to be someone else popping up in difficult circumstances.  Many keep it to themselves until it is pretty far along. Knowledge is power, thanks for sharing it with your community.

Thanks, Maggie and Marsha, for your supportive feedback. I wish I knew how to get the information to more people before it's too late for them. Some real estate pundits are forcasting another year of record foreclosures in 2009. For every one of those homes we can keep from becoming REOs, the better for our industry and our communities.

I cannot believe I didn't leave a message when I was here before!  I signed up to receive your emailer and it is a treasure.  I have received 3 out of the seven so far and boy am I impressed! You did a VERY good job of explaining what is happening and what will happen next.  I am going to start working on something for my own community.  I will come back and let you know what I did!  Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing what you have done!

How do you join the group "short sales, pre-foreclosures, bankruptcy and more?"  I clicked on it but couldn't join.  Help!
