This was not a simple one! I received this listing after a surplus of agents had attempted to get response on dozens of offers with no luck. None of them could figure out the proper channels for this Ridgefield WA short sale, because it was a VA loan, a Washington Mutual short sale, and was also tied up in the middle of a loan modification that had never been cancelled. On top of that, there was a 2nd mortgage with IQ Credit Union. The good news is that foreclosure had been halted for over 2 years, so the threat of losing the house was not an issue. Upon listing this Ridgefield WA home for sale, we were lucky enough to receive a short sale offer in the first week. After dozens of calls, faxes, and emails, I was finally able to reach a representative to remove the file from the loan mod...

I was lucky to receive a phone call in November from a nice couple in Ridgefield, WA needing to short sale their family home for job relocation. They found me on ActiveRain, and asked if I had any experience with their lender, LBPS (Lender Business Process Services) of Beaverton, OR. I hadn't worked with LBPS yet on a short sale, but gave them my references and asked that they give me the opportunity... I would certainly do my best.   They made the decision to list their Ridgefield, WA short sale with me in November. We received an offer in December, and the short sale packet was submitted to LBPS (Lender Business Process Services) immediately.      After an appraisal and a few short conversations with the negotiator, we received a short sale approval letter in early January at the offe...

We have a lot of smaller towns around Vancouver, WA and potential buyers sometimes ask about the history of certain areas. So today we will talk about Ridgefield, WA. Ridgefield is just 10 minutes north of Vancouver. The original inhabitants were the Chinook tribe, who had a large fish named after them. Lewis and Clark visited them on their way to the Pacific Coast and enjoyed them so much that they stopped for a visit on their way back. James Carty, who was an Irish immigrant, filed the first Land Donation Claim in 1840. He was the only settler until 1853. It must have been kind of lonely out there by himself, but maybe he liked it that way. Or maybe he didn't want anybody to find him, who knows? There is a Carty Street named after him, or one of his relatives. The original name was Un...
