Information and opinion on Real Estate in Stanislaus , Merced and San Joaquin counties mixed with why I love living in this part of the world.



I received a call today from a lady that is thinking about doing a short sale on her home.  This particular home owner has a Wachovia mortgage.  Wachovia / World Savings short sales are the least complicated short sales of all the banks out there.  You do NOT need to provide tax records, pay stub...
One of my childhood heros passed away today.  George Blanda died today at the age of 83.  I remember watching the Oakland Raiders as a kid and seeing George Blanda kicking field goals and occasionaly coming in off the bench and leading the Raiders to victory as the Raiders Quarter Back.  And man ...
A mental health break that is.  Every once in a while I just need to get away for the day, away from short sales, REO's, loan docs, disclosures, etc.   Yesterday I took the day off and headed to Yosemite National Park for the day.   It was a beautiful day, actually pretty warm.    While there we ...
Today was a good day.  I closed two more short sales today!  I have made it my goal to help as many people as possible to avoid going through a foreclosure.   The first one was a Bank Of America short sale in Ripon Ca. It took us a couple of tries, but we closed it today.  There is a very happy y...
I have made it my goal to help as many people as possible avoid foreclosure.  I have successfully listed and closed several short sales this year. This first one is located at 1217 Encina Ave in Modesto.  Most of the updating has been done already now it just needs your finishing touches.  There ...
The glamorous life of the Realtor.  It was after lunch time and I was hungry.  I also had to take some pictures for a BPO.   So I headed out to take my pictures so I thought I would run by the taco truck to grab a burrito!   I got my usual Carnitas burrito and a Pepsi, and go back to my car.  Wel...
I have seen a lot of negative on Activerain about Bank of America short sales.  I have had the opposite experience with them.    The first one is a short sale in Livingston CA.  I received multiple offers on this one.  I submitted a very good cash offer to BofA through the equator system.   It di...
If you are like many people here in Stanislaus and Merced counties of California's Central Valley you are upside down in your home.    I know it can be very frustrating and you might not be sure what to do.  You might think foreclosure is inevitable.  Foreclosure might not be your only answer.  M...
Ok, this has nothing to do with real esate.  I know activerain is great for getting peoples opinions about everything real estate, now how about something else.  I have been thinking about getting a motorcycle, specificially a Yamaha Roadstar.    I know there must be some motorcycle riders out th...
I am  sure we have seen bank owned homes with the fixtures removed, appliances gone, carpets torn up, etc.  I recently ran across a property where the owners really went to the extreme.  I was asked to do an interior Brokers Price Opinion (BPO) by one of the major banks.  So I drove out to the pr...
