2 Big Challenges in A Menlo Park Short Sale

There are many obstacles and challenges to closing a Mountain View Short Sale, but there are 2 that I find the most challenging to get around.

1. A private 2nd or 3rd lender: These are often more difficult to negotiate than a bank. There are homes where the seller may have taken back a note for a second or third, or where a relative may have invested with a loan thinking that he/he was going to make money or at…

NRBA Still a Good Way to spend $1,990?

Some of you may have read my "Final Tail Opportunity" blog a few weeks ago, but this is another example of what I am talking about.  I got a call the other day from the NRBA saying that they are finally going to finish processing my application...after about 3 years!!!  So, they did...and they got my references...and, as expected I have now been offered to join this fine organization.  It has always been the premier place for REO Brokers to be designated. It has a long history of brokers who…

An Ounce of Humility


As a young child, like most children are, I had a tendency to be arrogant, boastful, selfish and ego centric. I don't guess in this respect I was really any different than my peers however, it was only when I became more self aware, more able to analyze myself in a more retrospective fashion that I was able to see these traits and decide to do something about them. In my opinion, all of these traits are the least desirable of my personality and as such, I made a decision to negate…

Survey says........

I've been doing BPOs for a little while now. I fly through some but others seem to take forever to accomplish. I was wondering from you all what you think the average time it takes to accomplish (from start to finish, pictures to submission) a SFR Exterior and Interior BPO?  I understand that different companies have different forms and reporting procedures, and there are always other items/issues, but just…

Seriously? You're Still Using Index Cards and Post-it Notes For Lead Followup??

Anyone remember MLS books? I remember when I first got into the business, we had to pay our Board of Realtors for this HUGE ass book that double the size of a telephone book that showed every active listing in our market.  I'm probably aging myself, but this was before the internet and even before computers were a standard staple of any office. Back then, the way we…

Finding Delinquent Homeowners Before the NOD or Lis Pendens

The vast majority of pre foreclosure data sources compile their information from public records once the Notice of Default (NOD) or Lis Pendens (Latin for "Suit Pending" has been filed by the lender. The challenge in working these lists is that because that data is widely available to anyone that seeks it, there is intense competition among agents, investors, bankruptcy…

How well did I do on my 2011 housing predictions?

It's coming up on 2012 and I wanted to take a look at some predictions I had made for 2011 and just how well I did....or didn't do.

In my blog, "More Housing Predictions for 2011 part 2" one of my predictions was, "Lack of substantial job growth"

Well, I would say I was pretty on target for that prediction. I had mentioned that I didn't believe the underlying problems to the economy were going to be addressed and therefore, we couldn't expect a robust recovery, if one at…
