I have a friend who just found termites in her home.  She has had to separate companies visit her home and confirm she is indeed infested. Both companies have suggested tenting her home.  She has some concerns about this as recently on the news they were saying how dangerous it can be.I heard an advertisement on the radio saying "don't tent your home .. we have a new orange oil that will get rid of your termites!"  Does anyone have first had experience and knowledge of the two processes.  We live in an area that does not usually have termites so we were surprised that both companies did confirm the infestation.  Orange Oil sounds like the better way to go - but can does it get in the walls and kill all the little buggers??

Hi there AR Community!  I had a panic phone call today from a very nice gentleman who has two investment properties that he purchased two years ago that he is about to miss a payment on.  He called me asking if I could help him with a short sale.When we met at my office I asked him the usual battery of questions I ask to screen to see if the short sale would even be  a good option for him. After a few moments I told him that I would first like to try to work out a loan modification to see if we could try to keep his excellent 765 FICO score in tack.After looking at his paperwork I believe that he has fallen victim to some of the predatory lending practices that have been out there. He is a very nice Hispanic man who speaks broken English and seems to be very trusting.  I believe that he...
