REO’s The Big Bad Bank

REO is the new buzzword for investors.  It seems that we all know about REO’s like we have heard about them forever but until recently it wasn’t mainstream.  Now when you put in an offer on a REO it feels like there are 10 other people doing the same thing on the property you are trying to buy.  Question?  How do I get mine accepted?  The trick is to have a clean offer, shorten up your terms for inspection and increase earnest deposit but most of all, use the listing agent as your buyers agent.  When all else fails, giving […] Read more

Do Bandit Signs Work?

Ok, you can go out and spend a lot of money on pre printed chloroplast signs, and they work well.  In fact, you will probably get your phone to ring within hours.  But, if you will dumb it down a little, and hand write your signs, you phone will ring about 10x more.  How do I know this?…..The trick for me, is that I put my signs out on Friday afternoon, and take them down on Sunday night.  This lets me reuse my signs and make money from the call every week.  I also find that local numbers work better than […] Read more
