What Do Rising Rates Mean For the Silicon Valley Real Estate Market?

After the election I started watching Bloomberg TV instead of the news/opinion channels I had been watching.  I guess I just got tired of all the yelling, in addition to the fact that I felt the need to try and get some clarity on what might happen to the economy, and more…

Masses of Marginal Agents

As a licensed real estate broker and professional Realtor® with an operating brokerage here in Nashville TN, I have experienced my fair share of marginal agents in my time. Truth is, it seems to have gotten exceptionally bad here recently with the Nashville housing market exploding as Freddie Mac ranked us #1 in the nation last month. It seems with this real estate boom, everyone and their granny is coming out of the wood work to help you buy and sell a home for the promise of fast, easy…

BPO Tools & Automation

Hi everyone,

BPO Labeler is a windows tool I developed to easily and quickly rename photos just by dragging each photo to the corresponding field names - the photo would be renamed and copied to the destination folder that was originally specified. 

You can also access the Price Opinion calculator by clicking on the "Tools" in the toolbar of the application. The price opinion calculator was originally designed for BPO Fulfillment platform but it should work for others…

Amazing apps for your Real Estate business

I get so much email these days that I dread looking at my mail.

What a waste of time sifting through over 100 junk emails a day, just to make sure you do not miss something important.

Checking spam.

Trying to remember all of your clients email addresses at a glance.

Same story agents?

I opened this email from one of my LinkedIn groups, and was almost ready to hit DELETE, and to my surprise, there were a number of interesting and innovative…

Nashville TN Housing Market Due For Correction of 20-40%.

Nashville's housing market is due for a correction. Ask any local agent and they will tell you, we have never seen times like this before. My point is, our local market is completely and utterly operating outside of its balanced, healthy parameters. The only time in our history that we saw markets like this, was back in 2006 / 2007. The local housing market correction will be preceded by a national market correction which I do believe will happen towards the end of 2016....if not sooner. So,…

Bayview Financial

Has anyone ever worked a short sale with Bayview Financial? After my seller was three years in the short sale process, and two years with buyers waiting to close, the buyers lender needed one more day to close due to TRID requirements. And this was due primarily to the note being sold two times during the process. Buyers were packed and ready to move. Tenants in the short sale house were packed and ready to move. Bayview had the closing disclosures in hand. And Bayview refused to grant one…

I have been a huge fan of the site for a while and I have read many of the blogs. However, I don't recall any blogs related to the day to day management of BPO's.
