It's Not About Foreclosures. It's About Pricing! by Steve Harney on May 18, 2010 · 1 comment in For Buyers, For Sellers Remember the Boat Analogy Many of our readers question why I spend as much time as I do on the foreclosure situation in the country. I want everyone to know that it is NOT an obsession with depressing news. I strongly believe that the wave of distressed properties (foreclosures and short sales) coming to market will dramatically impact house values for the rest of 2010 and probably 2011. I want to make sure that every seller and buyer remains on top of this issue so that they can best evaluate the options for themselves and their families. I hope every real estate professional understands the issue well enough to simply and effectively communicate the effect it will ha...

The mortgage industry is fascinating.  I've enjoyed over 20 years helping 1,000's of homeowners finance or refinance their home.  Even amongst the turmoils that the industry has experienced over the last several years this continues to be one of the most rewarding aspects of my career. Helping Homeowners For Over 20 Years With the changes in the industry came changes to the documentation requirements.  Are you self employed?  Remember the "Stated Income" days?  Well, they are long gone!  Many people called them "Liar Loans" but that really wasn't a fair assessment of these loans.  Those that abused these Stated Income loan programs brought this slang into the industry. Unfortunately this change is here to stay.  Now the following information is required on just about every loan submitte...

Bathroom renovations offer one of the biggest return on your investment because they are used by everyone in the home.  This includes guests.   If a bathroom is outdated or in disrepair homeowners feel as if this reflects who they are and are embarrassed when guests are over.  My friend Marshal can help save you from embarrassment! It can also be difficult to sell a home with a dated bathroom.  However with a small investment with the help of Marshal Construction, you can revitalize your bathroom and raise the value of your home.  You may even be able to sell it faster. Another reason for rehabbing your bathroom might just be because you can't stand that particular shade of greenish/yellowish (what color is it?!?!) tile you've been looking at for 20 years! If you're in the McHenry, Kane...
