PAY RENT AND BUILD CREDIT TO HELP YOU GET A MORTGAGE   Qualify for a Mortgage With Your PRBC Reportsm I don't know if anyone knows about this program but this can be good for your clients who have bad credit-( I have a whole lot of them ) or no credit at all-. If you've paid your rent and three monthly bills on time for the past 12 months, you could qualify for a mortgage with one of PRBC's featured lending partners. If you've been told you have no credit score or "not enough credit" to apply for a home loan, a PRBC Report can help you qualify for a prime mortgage. Most of the bills you pay each month - including rent, utilities, cable, and phone bills - are not reported to the traditional credit bureaus, unless payments are late or missed. PRBC provides a simple way to document your on...

Bright spot for mortgages: Missed payments ease By Les Christie, staff writerFebruary 17, 2011: 11:33 AM ET   NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Mortgage delinquency rates among U.S. homeowners have fallen to their lowest levels in a few years, according to a report Thursday from the nation's mortgage bankers. The quarterly National Delinquency Survey from the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported that the rate of mortgage borrowers at least one payment past due or whose homes have been repossessed by their banks declined 0.22 point to 13.56% at the end of December, their lowest level since late 2008. Loans one payment past due were at 8.22%, down considerably from the 9.13% mark at the end of the third quarter and the lowest rate since the end of 2007, the beginning of the recession, the ba...

  ·        Congress approved a one-year extension of the existing loan limits for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. This allows the government’s loan guarantee and insurance programs to continue backing home loans of up to $729,750 in markets with the highest cost of living. Retaining the current higher conforming loan limits will allow homebuyers in higher cost areas to have access to affordable mortgage financing and share the same opportunity to achieve homeownership that borrowers in other regions of the country enjoy. This extension, which is good through Sept. 30, 2011, also expands the FHA’s capacity to back multifamily loans.   Congress also unanimously approved a one-year extension for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), until Sept. 30, 20...

      What are your daily affirmations? What is a affirmation? Affirmations are short,positive,present tense statements that define a state of being or a desired result. Repetitive exposure to an an affirmation builds belief. This year I am doing it more now.        Throughout history great avatars,leaders and achievers have harmoniously trumpeted one pointed fact of reality concerning human accomplishment that is irrevocable. You are what you think about,you become what you conceive in your mind. If you can believe it,you can achieve it.       Someone told me about Napoleon Hill's book "Think and Grow Rich",( I haven't read the book yet but I plan on doing so soon ). He said that "Whatever the mind can conceive and believe,the mind can achieve". Like they say,"As a man thinketh in his ...

I have now passed 75,000 points on Active Rain with this post. I seem like yesterday when I passed the 50,000 mark. Now I am over 75,000. But if I write more blogs on Active Rain,I would've been passed this mark. Anyway,I am happy. I want to thank you all for helping me pass the 75,000. I could not have done it without you guys. You know who you are- I am not naming no names this time-SORRY.  You will think by now I would have this blogging thing down pat-WRONG. Think again.

                                                                                    Point2Agent has been a website that I have been using for over a year now. Unlike many real estate agents who have using the Point2Agent website and have found success while using it,I don't get leads on this site. So I decided to change the domain name to free list of homes for sale hoping that this will improve my search engine ranking on Google,Yahoo etc. So far I haven't gotten any leads yet. But this website is still a work in progress. I still plan on adding some things to it such as Audio/Music,IDX,Blogs,Open house announcements and more things to my website to improve my search engine ranking and attract more home buyers and sellers who need information on the home buying and selling process.

Before I say anything,I want to say to all the great fathers out there -Happy Father's Day.                                                           Now the main reason why I am writing this blog. I once wrote on here that on sundays that no one should work/blog. Sundays should be the day that everyone should relax and start planning for the busy week ahead. But today I broke the rule. I feel bad too -SERIOUSLY. I said that people should not work and/or blog today but here I am blogging away. But I have been helping my young brother move into his new house ( Blog coming soon ) and I have been busying doing other Real Estate related stuff ( what's new )these past two days so I haven't had much time to blog. So I am blogging today to try and make up for the past two days. I am not going ...

We are know that real estate sales are down and that times are rough. It has prompted some real estate brokers to downsize. Some real estate professionals have left the business and are seriously thinking of leaving the real estate business. It has caused conflicts in families of real estate professionals. I remembered reading here the story of a young lady asking whether she should leave or stay in the real estate business. She said that her fiance or husband told her she should just leave because she is wasting her time and that she is never going to make no money. ( I have been there -TRUST ME. In fact,something like that happened to me recently. That's all I am going to say about that. ) I am a firm believer in the statement "If you can see it,you can achieve it". Its one thing to v...

 One of the blogs that I wrote "If you fail to plan,you plan to fail",I said that most top producing real estate professionals are successful because they have a very effective and successful plan in place. But you need a good database as well. A good database of names of peope and contact information of all kinds of profession. Well,I mentioned a website yesterday. The website is www.zoominfo.com. The company was founded in 1999. It is a web based service that has information about people and companies. It currently has about 3,854,213 companies listed on its site. You can set up a free profile. I feel this is a another good way to build your pipeline by e-mailing and/or calling people on this website introducing yourself and the kind of products and services that you offer. To receiv...

Pain at the pump has led to many business companies cashing in on trying to gain new business. It seems the nation's pain has been a marketing ploy for some businesses companies gain. Hopefully this gas deal wont get out of hand. In Washington DC,two days ago,a lady said that she has been waiting in line over night since 10:30pm  just to get free gas. I mean I have heard of people waiting in line for XBox game machines,Play station,Wii and/or the day after thanksgiving sale ( Black friday ). But to wait overnight just to get some gas? That's wild. When you think about it,I am glad that this promotion was done during Winter. Imagine waiting in line for some gas during Winter? You will have to keep the car running all night so the car can stay warm to keep the heat on. But by the time you...

                                          Many people have said that one of the things that you should do in life is go on a road trip. At the time,I didn't see the big deal about it. I mean what will I gain from going on some road trip? But while on the road trip,I started seeing beautiful places that I have never seen before. As I started viewing the beautiful mountains and hills,I was happy that I went on the road trip that covered 2,709 miles.                                              My brother who is in the Navy just finished training and he wanted someone to ride back with him from San Diego,CA to keep him company. So I didn't want to say no because it was my young brother who I always enjoy being around. So I said of course. We didn't get to really stop and visit places becau...

I know that you are always hearing everywhere about how the real estate market is so bad-Don't believe everything that you hear or read -Seriously. Whether it is the news on television,radio,newspaper and magazines,words of some crazy old sleep deprived big mouth -Jim Cramer ( I really like the guy. But he needs to stick to stocks,bonds,mutual funds and IRA's and stay out of real estate )all you are hearing them say is don't buy. Even some real estate professionals are saying this is a bad market and discouraging some people from buying and/or selling their home-What?

                                              Dear Homebuyers,       After months or maybe years of donating your hard earned money to the "I want to make my Landlord very wealthy because I just love giving away my hard earned money for free" Foundation,you decide that you want to stop giving away your hard earned money and finally become a homeowner- Congratulations to you. ( We are going to party like its 1999 once you settle in your new home ) I thought my kids were going to graduate from Grad school before you buy a home. ( I have no kids by the way )But before you start your home buying process,there is one thing that I need for to do for me. Pre-qualify yourself before you apply for a loan.       You need to do a debt to income ratio which is the ratio of a borrower's total of deb...
