America's Largest Social Network for Default Real Estate Professionals
I have an urgent need for a key contact in Loss Mitigation at American Home Mortgage Servicing Inc.
The internal contacts I have are literally the most incompetent people I have ever encountered in a financial institution or loan servicing company.
They demand paperwork, it is provided, then they demand the same paperwork after acknowledging the receipt of the previously requested paperwork
Then they just scheduled the trustees sale date of our home because the requested…Continue

Hi Everyone, I was assigned an REO in May and have been doing a weekly inspection for 5 months. It's a gated community, you know the drill "follow a car in and avoid getting hit by the bar". The foreclosure was finalized and recorded, it's been 3 week now. I was asked to put electric account in my name and all of a sudden I get an e-mail saying the property is being put on hold for listing and placed on a Discount or Non Profit list. Today I get a questionaire from closing agent of…Continue

When making an offer on a San Jose Short Sale it is common for the buyer's agent to ask the listing agent about his or her experience with short sales. They want to know if the seller's agent knows what he or she is doing because that is essential for a successful short sale completion. So when I am asked those questions I can honestly say that I am certified (CDPE),…Continue

Doing another SS this time through Litton. I am fat dumb and happy until close day.
We received approval/release from Litton for close anytime up to 10-13-2011. Had it schelduled for sept 2. On sept 1 Litton who had been purchased by Ocwen transfered all or most servicing rights to Ocwen. So not big deal right we have a signed approval and release and a letter sent to my client saying Ocwen will honor any "Litton" short sale approvals.
Well sort of anyway. Try to close…Continue

Last week Jesse announced that www.bankownedhomelistings.com was number 8 on google. We can do better than that! If everyone clicks on +1 on the google home search I bet we can get to number one in a week or 2. Let's be the most popular kids in the internet lunch room.
I've done it. Anyone else willing?

As a REO agent, we learn very quickly how important a good BPO is. Not only because we have to do them...along with MMR (Month Marketing Reports) but because our AMs rely on 3rd party BPOs to help them determine our list prices. Yes, you heard me correctly, I as the REO agent rarely get to list the property for the price I want. In fact, most to the time, I have to list the property at the 3rd party BPO price. So, I am trying to sell a property at a price I had no control over, my…Continue
