What do you think about the REO listings who want you to have buyers preapproved through their preferred source?  Many of my buyers are suspicious, thinking the seller wants to know exactly how much they can spend.  I question this reasoning.  REOs must know cash buyers can spend more money, but ...

I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of politicians acting more like 3 year olds playing in a sand box.  It's time we get rid of the GOOD OLD BOYS CLUB and elected people who know how to serve the public. Okay, I know I should be giving explicate examples.  But I am in the process of c...

Does anyone have any information on the, "produce the note" method to stop a foreclosure?  I looked at a number of sites to see if this was legitimate and of course there are more sites claiming this is true compared to sites claiming this is a hoax.  This is how it works. While a home owner is f...

"I can sell your house better than your old agent."  I don't know how many times I have heard that or read this in a letter addressed to me, a Real Estate Agent who had his own home on the market.  I let my listing expire which opened the flood gates to agents calling and mailing me information i...

Have you seen the new Windows Mobile commercials designed to make us think a ...

I always say, "we could have the easiest job in the world if everyone would just do their job."  That goes beyond Real Estate Agents.  To bring a transaction to a successful closing it takes a team effort.  There are normally two Real Estate Agents, one representing the Seller side and one on the...

Is the market still going slow?  The quickest way Real Estate Agents can turn this market around is to reduce the amount of foreclosures.  I always thought my license agreement with the State of Wisconsin required me top provide information to the public.  Although there may not be required guid...

Why do we keep electing officials who have no ideas to solve the problems we face?  It seems many of our elected officials know nothing about balancing a budget.  We continue to elect and reelect the same people with the exact same qualities, or lack thereof.  I propose we fashion a test.  Before...
