Unreasonable Appraisal Issues During Short Sales
Every once in a while, an appraisal issue comes up that leaves you scratching your head in puzzlement. On our latest short sale, the appraiser clearly didn't want to bring the appraised value of the property in at the asking price (and, incidentally, the price the buyer was willing to pay). Even though I provided excellent comps that sold well above the asking price of my listing, the appraiser was…Continue
While being neither a scientist nor economist, there seems to be a similarity between one of Mother Nature's harshest events and the state of the US housing market.
A forest fire begins in a number of different ways but a common element is usually the existence of an over-abundance of fuel including dead undergrowth. The forest fire consumes this dead undergrowth but usually

Recently I have noticed some HOAs recording Notice of Defaults (NODs) here in California. And, this is without a NOD from the lender on the unit. Could it be that people are not paying their HOA dues but continuing to pay their mortgage OR that the lender is holding off on recording the NOD.
My understanding is that after a property is foreclosed, the HOA lien may extinguish. However, I have seen a situation where the lender had to pay off the HOA lien before closing escrow…Continue

As mere children, we learned to the Golden Rule to always do unto others as we would have them do unto us....or something to that affect. However, recently all that we hear about is corporations running rampant with questionable business practices that have almost annihilated the American middle class, governmental back room deals that further diminish our capacity to live the American Dream, and banking practices that are just plain, downright abhorrent (to say the least). Even over the…Continue
