Every lender is different, but I have found that you have to get to the loss mitigation dept. and you have to stay on top of them to the point of calling sometimes as much as 15 times a day. Get your offer to the board as quickly as possible because they will ultimately make the decision no matter what you've been told. It has to go to the board and most boards meet every thirty days and go over short sales for the past thirty days, then make the decisions to accept, turn down or put on hold. Here is how I package a deal, hope it helps. I try to get as much out of the way as possible. I include a hardship letter from the sellers and it has to be hard, not just that the market is bad (boo hoo) if that is all you've got forget it. It has to be a Job loss, medical crisis, something that me...

Blowing Bubbles.....you must remember doing that as a kid?.....no one does that any more, right? Wrong! My friend and ex - Real Estate client, Anne-Marie, is the last of the good time bubble blowers. Our relationship started when I went to work at Keller Williams. Anne-Marie was the MCA...suffice to say she is the one that wrote the checks which says more than bookkeeper or office manager ...much more... She is a meticulous woman who wants all the i's dotted and heaven forbid you forget to cross those t's...but there is this other side that smacks right in the face of any stereotype you ever, ever had of a professional number cruncher. To say she is religious sounds so stuffy but religious she is. She is one of those cradle Catholics while I am a johnny come lately to the faith,so our p...

Imagine hands across America with each person holding onto  one another with honesty and integrity.  People of America that is not an imagination.  We as a group, however small, can make a difference in stimulating our local communities.  Take Danny Cottrell, for an example.  Mr. Cottrell is a pharmacist in a Brewton, Alabama.  One day, a few weeks ago, he called in his employees for a meeting.  You can imagine how they each thought they were probably going to lose their job.   (Brewton ,Alabama is a small town.)  If only we could have seen their faces when Mr. Cottrell handed each of his full time employees $700.00 and $300.00 to his part time employees all in $2.00 bills which was a total of $16,000.  He asked them to give 15% to charity and to spend the remaining money in their small...

Realtor, that's right. I was interviewing a well known Pensacola Attorney today for an upcoming article and the subject turned to Real Estate. He also holds a Real Estate Licenses as well and we got to talking about our different professions. One of the questions I ask him was why he wanted to be an attorney (as most of you know I have a real dislike for attorneys and politcians) and he said hehad started out defending what he called the defensless and people that couldn't afford an attorney. Of course that only lasted for a year because there was no money in it. But this led to his asking why I wanted to be a Realtor. Now don't get me wrong it is about the money and I want to make lots of it. But he knew me from way back and knew that wasn't the only thing, I didn't finish law school b...

What an absolutely AMAZING place to live! The Florida Department of Transportation opened J. Earl Bowden Way in the Gulf Islands National Seashore to traffic on Friday and - WOW - did I forget just how much I missed this gorgeous stretch of Gulf front road! The road, which was damaged during Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and again by Huricane Dennis in 2005, once again links Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach and the drive is nothing short of spectacular. I was out on the road on Saturday taking photos of my husband and a group of his friends who were out for a training bike ride and I just have to share!   The weather was in the mid 70s on Saturday - a perfect day for a long bike ride and the group rode 70 miles. Their loop took them from Gulf Breeze, out Garcon Point to I-10, back to Gulf Bre...

In 2007 we turned down a listing I really wanted. It had such great curb appeal. The home was a For Sale By Owner when I first saw it.  I made contact with the wife  who needed and wanted to sell her home. By the time we were allowed to give a listing presentation it was obvious the Market was slipping badly. As is often the case when you deal with FSBO's they have an inflated idea of the value of their home. Often they are upside down and just cannot face the fact they must come to the closing table with money if they have any hopes of unloading their little piece of paradise. Well it was abundantly clear that paradise in this case had gone south. . They were adamant about the value of their home...Our team did the comps and they were not even close to being in the market at the price ...

How you ask, well good question. You see me, the kids and the wife eat out almost every night with the exception of Thursday night and have for years. I actually think it is a lot cheaper with our busy life styles. We eat pretty healthy too, Applebees, Po folks, Chinese on Fridays, Dennys etc. Anyway we alway sgo and the kids eat free. So a family of four can actually get away with $25 to $30 bucks. So what is so bad with that, well with economy in the crapper the resturants are charging for little things like the drink and some are doing away with kids eat free or worse they have caught on to my plan and most are only free on Tuesdays. So the wife comes home with sacks of grocery the other night and annouces that she is taking a cooking class. Not only that she says we are going to eat...

If you are thinking of buying a foreclosure in Pensacola, Florida be sure to start or finish at www.charlesstallions.comwhere you will find all the latest information, news and reports. I have been selling to investors only for the last fourteen years and although investors have not gotten completely back into the market it is a good thing for individuals wanting a good buy. Especially for first time home buyers because unlike foreclosures in the past a lot of the ones today have been well maintained and in really good condition.  When the investors do jump back in, it will be too late because the prices will begin to rise considerably. As investor myself and Realtor I recommend buyers have a home inspection as well purchase a homewarranty. Don't get caught with your pants down trying t...

If any A/R folks are going to Tallahassee for Legislation days maybe we all get get together. The board usually has a big cookout and I would expect this one to be no different. If your interested give a shout out and lets rock Tallahassee. There is several agenda items coming up over the next couple of years that agents need to be aware of. Also there is a meet and greet before and after hours.

  I have ever had to write. At our initial meeting I told you that I felt that we would do more in the first thirty day than most will do the whole time they had your property listed. We have had an auction, two open houses, a brokers luncheon, ran an ad in the newspaper, magazine, army times, have placed your home all over the internet including all the major sites and even blogged about it several times. As I told you at our initial interview we are in the business of selling homes not listing them. We have had 12 people view your home, an offer at a little below the recommended price that I showed you at that initial meeting and although I was willing to take it at your price as I said for ninety days and if it hadn't sold it would be time for a change. Well it is time for one of two...

Every year it seems I attend more and more functions, Christmas parties, New Year bashes and recently the Governors economic summit and it always seems that when people find out I'm a Realtor it leads to (as my wife says a whole night of) talking Real Estate. We recently sat at a table for eight and each person had a real estate question. Most want to know when their home price will head up or at least stop going down. I usually attend something of this nature every week and I come away with a deal a month because of it. But I have found most just want advice because it's free. I remember once asking an attorney a question at one of these and he did spend a half hour or so answering but he also sent me a bill. After I called him to see if he was for real, he did let me slide but I think...
