I think we would all agree that the banks absolutely need to have a quicker response to shortsale offers. The response time could be shortened by ramping up their hiring in the loss mitigation department, possibly hiring part time realtors that know the business.  As soon as an offer is received a brokers price opinion or BPO needs to be ordered.  As soon as it comes in it needs to be weighed against the offer. Meanwhile someone from the department needs to make sure that all the shortsale required documents (seller financials, bank statements, paystubs are up to date and in their file.)  A fast response after quick review is vital in moving these shortsales and selling them before they become bank owned properties.  Faster response is needed in order to keep our buyers engaged and movi...

With all of the What Ifs going on in the world today, I think all of us know it is a great time to get out of debt.  With the big question about likely tax increases and healthcare reform and the job market, it is imperative for our financial health and our marriages and family health that we get unshackled from debt - credit card debt, car debt, figure out how to pay our mortgage down at an accelerated rate. We are reading Dave Ramsey Total Money Makeover and are getting really excited about getting debt paid off.  What are the effects of debt - stress, fights in marriage, ulcers.  Wouldn't it be nice to think about something other than money and putting out fires in your finances?  Robbing Peter to pay Paul?  Think how free you will be putting more money in savings, saving for retirem...

Bank Owned Reos, specifically well priced homes in good condition, are driving multiple offers, a virtual auction.  When a home buyer listens to their realtor encouraging their absolute best offer, including going $1000 above list price to several thousand above, they can have their victory dance.  Sometimes a bid to obtain the property pushes the house out of a buyer's price range and out of their ability to obtain a mortgage and closing, that would be frustrating to everyone, so wisdom has to be applied to the bidding process. Nearly all REO's offer the home "as is", some requiring your home inspection prior to making your offer, in rapid fashion.  I had a customer make an offer $2K above list price after paying for a home inspection, loved the house, but ihis offer was at the maximum...

With the weak economy, many condo associations - which are classified as not-for-profit corporations - find bills are piling up as units enter foreclosure and homeowners stop paying association fees, putting enormous financial strain on residents left holding the bill. When condo communities are not receiving their monthly condo fees from condo owners, they have to look for options, especially when the condo fee delinquencies reach 30% or more.  When individual condo owners fall behind in their mortgage payments, the association also feels the pinch about the same time.  When a bankruptcy is filed by the condo association, utilities including water and electricity cannot be turned off.  In order to operate for the condo owners and have the lights on outside their units, condo assocation...
