Offers on REO’s should be Last, Final and Best!
I get more complaints from prospective buyers about their offers because they didn’t get the opportunity to counter. No matter how up front I can be about the offer process it seems to never get through that most times, banks aren’t going to counter, they are simply going to accepting the best offer and, that may not be yours.
What really hammers my patience is when I get a call from a buyer’s agent that goes something like… Continue

I am not very good at this, but here it goes anyways. Went to the REOMAC conference in Hollywood last week. What a great experience. It was everything I expected and much more. Met lots of nice people and learned a lot from the pros. I am not a member and unfortunately they are not accepting new members at this time, but I would love to become one whenever is possible, its a great organization. I went with another agent friend who is also an REO agent. Since we are in Miami, we just drove there… Continue

REO is fast becoming a household acronym, almost achieving the same success of its predecessors TV and USA. REO stands for “Real Estate Owned”.

If you had the opportunity to spend 10 minutes with and Asset manger, what would you say? How would you act? What would you do? Well I have to tell you my story. While attending the 5- Star conference I actually met and AM in my REO A-Z course. She was sitting at the end of the isle that I had to access to get back to my seat during a break. Since it was still a break and she was in conversation with another attendee I stayed and listened to the conversation, introduced myself and was invited… Continue

If you haven’t started moving your business plan towards working with Short Sales, what are you waiting on? If you don’t do it now, you may be missing out.
It has been my experience and I am of the opinion that Short Sales are going to become the wave of the future, if they aren’t already. In fact, I have seen many of my Asset Mangers becoming much more cooperative to them and in some cases, creating infrastructure to get them closed in 14 days or less.
To explain my point… Continue

Q: 1- What are the risks?
A: The risk when investing in Short Sales is no different than investing in any other section of the Real Estate Industry. The better question is how does one limit the amount of risk they take on when buying investment real estate? Buy low, sell high however, stay competitive and if necessary, cut your loss early and move on.
Q: Can I end up in the same boat as the sellers and lose all of my assets - i.e. condo, pension plan, bank account… Continue
