Connect The Dots & Banks Behaving Badly

   When You Step Back, This Is Pretty Easy To See…

I know it seems like ancient history, but let’s look at a RealtyTrac article that came out just 90 days ago….

“Foreclosure Sales and Short Sales Account for 43 Percent
of U.S. Residential Sales in 2012”

You might say 43% sounds like a lot for distressed sales, but what is normal?”

Well, this chart might shed a little light on just how out of whack 43% actually is:

Now, Let’s Connect Those Facts With These Next Two Headlines

From The Last Few Days.
“N.Y. AG Revising Foreclosure Settlement Complaint Against B of A, Wells”
“Banks Still Behaving Badly”

From the second article, posted at

“The lawsuits are another sign that more than a year after the mortgage settlement between five big banks and state and federal officials banks are still mishandling foreclosures in ways to benefit themselves while harming borrowers. Mr. Schneiderman is right to object, but the sad truth is that a concerted government effort to hold banks accountable has never materialized.”

Did you catch that???

“….banks are still mishandling foreclosures in ways to benefit themselves while harming borrowers.”

Please listen…. People out there need your help!

If you know how to deal with these banks, you should be making a fortune right now.

That is exactly why you need to be with us Monday at WREIA.  We are going to be talking about how to deal with these banks, and how to deal with the homeowners that are in distress.  

And I know what you are going to say…. “But John, they keep saying how great real estate is right now, and how fast prices are rising.  There is no inventory.”

Well, we are going to talk about that too, and give you some tactics that may change your opinion about just how “great” the market is in our backyard. Before you run out and bet your last dollar on real estate, you should examine the risks that still exist.
