I was speaking to a real estate agent from another state and he was venting about his experience dealing with a short sale.  After 6 months in escrow and next to action from the lender he is told that the loss mitigation guy who was working the file had 3800 files to work.  Let me say that again ...

                                    Last year at the NAR Convention I decided that I would attend NAR in Orlando only if I was having a good business year.  The first half of this year started at a strong pace, my best year yet.  It was decided at that point.  I'm going to Disney World!  Well Orl...

Lenders are a major cause of property values dropping in many communities.  I am not going to argue about their lending practices and the volume bad loans they issued.  I think that is a given. The incompetent way lenders have dealt with these bad loans is causing the problem to escalate in commu...

I have watched lenders one by one drop like flies over the last few months.  I see commercials telling consumers in trouble to contact their lender, because they want to help them.  I honestly do not believe it.  Have you ever tried to contact a lender for a short sale packet or to discuss not be...
