I was browsing through my MLS and saw a property that a client of mine might be interested in.  When I looked at the CSO, it was 2.25%!?  The average in my area for short sales is 2.5%.  This one is an REO.  Curious about how other agents handle these.  Thanks.

This afternoon I was in an older area of Concord, CA.  I was sitting in the dining room of a sweet elderly couple.  I looked around the paneled living room and realized that the door was of the same paneling as the rest of the room!  The only way you could tell it was a door to get out of the roo...
