I read Corey Samson's posting this morning about short sales - Hoax or Opportunity, where he said the following: Experienced agents qualify a property and a seller with the bank before setting a price. They request and receive a "Broker Price Opinion" on the value of what a Realtor thinks it woul...
My car is being serviced downstairs as I write this posting. I am in a private cubicle upstairs at the car dealer, using their computer, drinking my second cappucino, (I needed that to wash down the cinnamon bagel and cream cheese.) Guess what, I don't mind coming in to get my car serviced becaus...

Hooray! the seller accepted the contract! but now it has to go to the bank for approval. I have sold other properties that were short sales, but the final sales prices were more in the range of 10% below market value. This one seems a little different. It originally started out on the market at $...
The last few months have been difficult for all of  us, but sometimes it is hard to believe that everyone else is going through the same thing that you are - or that your suffering is mirrored by lots of other agents. I was starting to feel more than frustrated with my buyers who are all waiting ...
  I like to give my past clients little gifts for some non-denominational holidays - Flag Day, Thanksgiving, etc. Last year I found a great buy at Target - in the $1.00 section - very sweet little glass candle holders shaped like hearts.
