There seems to be some varying opinion on how to interpret loan limit increases for Conforming and FHA type mortgages. I've read articles here that suggest a $650k Conforming loan limit while FHA mortgages will set a new limit based on (max) 175% of the subject property's County Median Home Price...

There is a growing list of websites that have received the shiv from NAR for using 'Realtor' in their name, url etc. AgentGenius (formerly RealtorGenius.com, prior to the 86 from NAR ) is one of these victims.

I'm one to write diatribes. I have this internal claw that directs me to carefully articulate my topics by preemptively covering all angles (and potential rebuttals) as a reader takes the time to digest my left (or right) of center opinions.

Technology has always been a gateway for me to reduce laborious tasks and increase communication efficiencies…in other words it helps alleviate my procrastination habits and other nefarious personal productivity holes.

The NAR convention in Las Vegas was an experience of deafening ‘white noise’. Not quite sure how many people attended the event but as I walked through the Venetian, meandering my way to The Sands Expo Hall, I passed at least 5000 individuals wearing neck passes tagged with ribbons that demonstra...

‘We are the fossils, the relics of our time, we mutilate the meanings till they’re easy to deny.’ - William Corgan I hear many mortgage and real estate professionals within the industry still spouting off about how no technology will ever replace them…no, technology won’t, but the professional th...

Let me clearly state that I’m not a proponent of this Bill at all, for a number of reasons, most specifically: No amount of legislation from the folks in Ivory Towers is going to ‘fix the mortgage problem’. Mortgage law MUST transcend and apply to both brokers and bankers, otherwise it’s a total ...
