A few weeks ago, I received a call from someone who has found me through someone who I have helped in the past, asking me for advice on their ongoing short sale.  They just had some questions, even though they have an agent working for them, but they called me because I have experience in bankrup...

I have been given so many reasons why someone should short sale their home.  Let me give you some of the reasons:   1.  My house is upside down, I can afford the payment, I just don't want to pay it. 2.  My neighbor sold his house as a short sale, I should be able to also. 3.  I am angry with my ...

  I get a phone call yesterday and it was someone interested in viewing my listing.  I asked him if he had an agent, he said "No, and I don't want one, because I can get a better deal if I don't have an agent".   WOW!!!

I was curious of how many agents use a lead-generating real estate website.  I started using one some time ago and it seems to be working well but I was wondering what others are using and their experience with it.  The one I use charges a monthly fee for the website.  I do get leads from it but ...

As I was shopping earlier today, I saw a couple struggling to get a piece of furniture into their vehicle that was not going to fit.  So I asked them if they lived close by and they said yes.  I offered to put the piece of furniture in my SUV and take it to their house for them.  (They lived abou...

I have worked with US Bank with a handful of short sales in the past few years and have noticed nothing but problems with their communication and their disorganization.  I was wondering if others have had issues with their short sales with US Bank.  I have had a couple fall apart based on the lac...
