Do you old time REIA group members remember back when real estate gurus used to attend their local REIA group meetings on a regular basis? Where have all the local real estate gurus gone? Why don’t the real estate gurus attend their local REIA groups anymore as part of the general membership?

Even though Atlanta, Georgia has many local real estate gurus, the only time I ever seem to see them at local REIA group meetings is when they are occasionally invited to come speak and sell a product or service. There are a few notable exceptions, but this seems to be the norm. As far as national real estate gurus go, your average REIA group will parade a new real estate guru before you each and every month at your main REIA group meeting selling a similar, and often more expensive, product or service. As a result, many of these real estate guru’s sales fall far short of their desired sales mark at such REIA groups and they don’t seem to want to attend or speak at REIA groups as much anymore.

Kimberlee Frank of Foreclosures Gone WildDid you hear about Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and GMAC putting the brakes on the foreclosure process?   What does all this mean to you as an investor, mortgage broker, realtor or homeowner?  First off, the attorneys who were representing the Mortgage Companies have documentation with wrong information.  As a Homeowner, it will allow you additional time for work a loan modification or a Short Sale.  Just because the Mortgage Companies say stop the foreclosure action for a while, it does not mean the Judge needs to comply.  The Court will not automatically stop the foreclosure action unless the attorneys working for the Mortgage Companies file the necessary paperwork.   Learn the foreclosure process and understand the foreclosure time line.  Check the court docket in your area to keep informed.  You will need to make sure that the mortgage companies’ attorney has filed the necessary Motion to delay the foreclosure process.   Mortgage Companies don’t always know when their attorney has scheduled a sale date.  We had to stop a foreclosure sale on a house we bought and resold many times.
