Scottsdale Short Sale Newsflash! Many Scottsdale homeowners facing foreclosure mistakenly believe that they have "All the Time in the World" to make a decision and take action.     The reality is that there are 24 short months to complete a Scottsdale Short Sale - as in list, sell and c...
Very well written rationale for why agents should refer their short sales to agents who: Specialize in Short Sales Have a List to Close ratio of at least 70% (ours is in the 90% plus range overall and 95.83% for 2010) Have closed at least 25 Short Sales (we have closed more than 50) Have the abi...

It is always good news for Buyers when lenders expand the range of the loan types available.  Lenn Harley makes a great point in the comments in the original post regarding the deductibility of the interest, whereas PMI is not deductible. It seems like it was just yesterday that the sub-prime an...
  "If everyone on our team would produce even ONE targeted, hyper-local blog per week... (or DAILY) our office would DOMINATE  the local market in a short time!"  Not sure I would make that leap.  DOMINATE in the number of blog posts - very likely.  DOMINATE in terms of new business - ...
"My husband is the world's worst Dresser Drawer Closer....There are always corners of T-shirts or socks poking out, and they are never completely closed."  Now that's funny - and a great reminder to "Sweat the Small Stuff"! When Selling your home....SWEAT the Small St...
