What happens when your Lender says "NO" to your Short Sale? It can be quite common for a "NO" to come along the way with a Short Sale so you must have a plan and anticipate such a response. We can't get discouraged along the way with a Short Sale as I've seen many a Short Sales here in South Florida where we had to overcome the "NO" and did. Check out this video for some tips on having Short Sale Success

Don't you love a good Treasure Hunt? I do too! I find things I didn't know I wanted until I stumble upon them in a fantastic garage sale. October 22, Coral Springs Florida is having a community garage sale at Mullins Park from 8am to 11am. You can either set up a booth to sell or bring your pocket book to look around and buy. Either way, it will be fun. Once I found a beautiful centerpiece for my dining room table for five dollars. I was proud of myself for a week. If you think you have enough stuff, clean out those closets! Your junk could be exactly what somebody else is looking for! For more information, call 954-345-2204.
