Altisource is acquiring Equator!

Posted on August 22, 2013 at 3:30pm 5 Comments

I received an email today saying that Altisouce is acquiring Equator! This should be interesting. I have been a vendor with them for awhile but I stopped accepting most of the assignments because I found out that they aren't using outside agents to list the properties. Everything is listed with their in house Broker.

Georgia deeming it illegal to represent sellers for a short sale any longer!

Posted on August 16, 2013 at 9:30pm 20 Comments

I was just forwarded an email from one of the Top Real Estate attorneys here in Georgia that says they will no longer be processing short sales because it is now illegal for them or the agents to do so without a loan originator license!

A buyer who wanted to purchase one of my short sale listings last year contacted me and let me know he was interested in purchasing another one in that community.

Did they just need to keep it on the books until after the first of the year or what? This is really hard for me to understand. Would someone please explain it to…


FHA additional 4k seller incentive must be specifically itemized on HUD!

Posted on April 12, 2012 at 12:30pm 7 Comments

You really have to watch every detail on these FHA's where they are giving the extra 4k seller incentive. I had the HUD sent back for a revision to move the incentive from Line 514 to somewhere between lines 505-509! Really??It must follow the exact guidelines they require or it will delay your approval!

I was just looking for something when I saw waaay back on like June 30 you liked my profile?  I guess I should check in here a little more often.  :)

But I still haven't found my way back to EDIT my profile. I guess that CDPE I paid for should be flown on this flagpole too.

What I did find though was how to 'customize' my page - and the default font type was..  (ready for this?)..  Georgia?  How do you spell serendipity?  :)
