I thought this was important enough to pass along to my friends! With the real estate market and general economy the way it is, more and more predators have come out from under the rocks.  Last year I blogged extensively on the Florida Foreclosure Rescue law FS 501.1377 that went into effect 10/1...

I guess it's a sign of the times, this market has been unusual and I have seen many things that I never expected.  One such event is tenants grilling would-be landlords about their finances.  Are you making your loan payments, are you going to declare bankruptcy?  Questions like these are being h...

 I have posted several articles recently regarding the change in our real estate market.  Seems that the market's moving in several areas of the country.   What goes up, must come down; and go back up again.  Check out this article:  http://digg.com/d1o6Dq   This correction has created huge oppor...

In a previous blog, I mentioned my concern that appraisers are using foreclosures as comps for appraising retail sales.  I just saw this article that addresses the negative affect of poorly concieved BPO's on our current market.   http://www.floridarealtors.org/NewsAndEvents/n4-040209.cfm .  Bad ...

A local agent shared this and I thought I would pass it along.  This is an official site that explains the new tax credit.  http://www.federalhousingtaxcredit.com/  .  This seems to be having an effect in our market, hope it helps you, too!  What's neat is that this is a tax credit not a deductio...

It seems to me that we are seeing a pattern in existing home sales.  For six straight months, we have seen a growth in sales of existing homes.  See this article:  http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/floridas-existing-home-condo-sales-rise-february/  .  Seems to me that six months is a long enough p...

So I just read a post about appraisals: http://activerain.com/blogsview/959873/The-real-skinny-on-why-Appraisers-use-foreclosures-to-value-your-home.  Thanks Mary for your professional perspective.  I have to say I disagree with most all circumstances in which foreclosures are used to value retai...

Just saw this: An exerpt from a recent  Fannie Mae release. "No Negotiation of Preforeclosure Sales Commission Servicing Guide, Part VII, Section 504.02: Contacting Selected Borrowers Effective March 1, 2009, closing of preforeclosure sales may not be conditioned upon areduction of the total comm...

Ok, so I am not the most tech-savvy guy out there, but you'd have to be living in a cave to not have heard of Twitter.  What is twitter?  I know, at least I think I know, but when my 12 year old asked, I mumbled something about "its kinda like IM'ing but not and a little like talking to a lot of ...

Not my words, but I have been thinking it! Let’s talk about a real “Change”. I don’t care who you elect, one person can only do so much. It is the mindset and the actions of the people in this country that can affect real “Change”. As long as we have people who sit around and expect to receive so...
