Was reading MSN real estate page today and found this article which is good news for Oregon. It is about the top places people are moving to and Oregon is number 2 after Washington DC.  Below is the link.   http://realestate.msn.com/slideshow.aspx?cp-documentid=24157680#

I have a short sale in progress and the loan was with BofA and got sold to Greentree.  The ironic thing is that they bought it while it was in default - I don't understand why anyone would buy a defaulted loan - makes me wonder.  Any answers out there.  I asked if they were a subsidiary of BofA a...

Here is a link to an article I saw about saving on moving expenses in RIS Media that I thought might be of interest to those who are moving.  Interesting what it says about timing the move (not on 15th or 30th of month which are busiest times) and some other common sense stuff we don't always con...

I have worked with several lenders on short sales, but BofA is definitely the worst.  I feel like I have to capitulate to all of their demands or the sale will be declined.  Wondering if anyone else gets that feeling and if anyone has gotten a short sale price lowered from the counter BofA came b...

I was reading RIS Media this morning and happened to come across this article which I thought was pretty good to add to the other posts on the subject.  What caught my eye was the reference to the alternate procedure called RASS which is when you submit an offer with a short sale request.  I real...

I just read this article and one thing I was encouraged by is that they did not mention Bend.  To be honest, I was surprised they didn't mention our area along with Central California and Las Vegas as having concentrations of short sales and foreclosures to compete with regular home sales.  If on...

I just studied the attached report prepared from MLS statistics by my principal brokers and it pretty much supports what I have been observing in the market.  While the average price per home dropped significantly between Jan and Feb, the prices have been pretty stable and gone up a little and I ...

Well, things seem to be going better this round.  New short sale submitted on equator on 4/22 and already new appraisal is completed, but it is in the black hole of "MPV" - a valuation phase where my prior deals seem to get hung up and the task always falls behind. Last time it was in this phase ...
