"Be careful trying to find a buyer to purchase a Short Sale before it closes to you for more than what you're paying. That is considered Flopping and is illegal. On foreclosures you can bid on them at the courthouse and already have a buyer…"

Retrofit Job

I love to hear from homeowners on the internet, although it's not always a homeowner from a publication that had work done on the subject of their publication. I always learn something about the homeowners expectations, grievances and the message they want to send about the company. People who share ideas are genius, people who share accomplishments are smart, and people who talk about people are ignorant.Because this is relatively a new field for a lot of people I'm prone to remind folks…See More
