I am a independent contractor for Titanium Solutions that contracts with mortgage companies to work with borrowers that are delinquent to help them.  The banks are interested in working out programs to assist people staying in their homes.  When the Obama stimulous program started in March the assignments shut down.  I may of recieved 5 assignments in 6 months. This week I recieve 20+ assignments in 2 days.  The assignments are from Freddie Mac and Bank of America.  This is significant and it either means that there is a push to get workouts approved with the borrowers or the foreclosures will be increasing soon!Keith MansonFirst Weber GroupCertified Distressed Property ExpertGreenfield, Wisconsin www.milwaukeebailout.com

  In Wisconsin...watching the Packers is sort of "religious experience"....it seems to be a requirement for being a Badger state resident...during the most competitive games with the fiercest of competitors...you can hear a pin drop on any busy street....and the roar of the crowd when you get within a block of Matty's Bar at game time.    If you want to have more fun....enjoy the company...the food...the stimulating "feels like you're at the game" kind of atmosphere...drive on over to Matty's Bar in New Berlin, WI Are you a member of Matty's PACKER BACKER CLUB yet?

That is a very good question lately; the answer is absolutely yes! The rates, the selection, and the prices are great for any buyer looking to purchase. If you are a first time home buyer you need to really get going if you want to buy a home and take advantage of the first time home buyer tax credit.  If you are a seasoned buyer the deals are there for you as well. If you are interested in selling your home or even knowing what is my Waukesha County home worth please visit the on-line value below. If you have a look at the MLS search below and find what you are looking for, and still have a home to sell, the first step would be to get an idea of what type of funds you may have after the sale of your existing home. It's a busy time whether you are buying a home in Waukesha County or if ...

Are you a buyer looking for homes for sale in Waukesha County, Wisconsin? If you are it's important to realize that there are many variables that are extremely favorable in your corner right now. For example, if you are a First time home buyer in Waukesha County you can still qualify and receive the first time buyer tax credit. You have until December 1st, 2009 to close by buying a home in Waukesha County. If you are not a first time home buyer you still have lots of great variables to take into consideration.

 In this installment of  Tom Braatz, How do I find the right real estate agent in Waukesha County? Series (#4 of 6)  we will talk about Waukesha County real estate agents specializing in different areas of the real estate Industry. This might seem very interesting to note that I see many Waukesha County real estate agents taking on different projects but I also know many that have a certain niche they have developed. There are those that I know which their niches make them strong.I know some people that work primarily on short sales. It requires a lot of time but because they have it down they make their numbers work. Then again I know agents that do nothing but land development and subdivisions. Again, these agents sell other avenues of real estate but they have a great knowledge of la...

It was a very productive day and when it was nearing the end I asked my son what he felt like doing. He has adopted a new hobby that gets to be pretty time consuming , but at the same time is very fun and a way for him and his Dad to hang out together and stare at the water. After we ate lunch and focused on our mission he grabs his poles, his bait, his seat, his worms and we go out to find the prettiest spot possible to fish for about four hours, This time is good for Spencer and I do talk Dad to son talk about troubles and life. It's our moment. We may sit at one stop for two hours and then pack it all up and move to another spot where we think the fish moved and  migrated. The beauty of the lake surrounding us, and the wildlife and people make it pure enjoyment. IT is something we al...

 When I got into this business in the Waukesha County Real Estate market I set out to be one of your typical Waukesha Real Estate agentsas well as one of  your typical Waukesha County Real Estate agents I was as close to a walking parrot as you could find. In the years I have met some very incredible buyers and sellers and I had refined my art of Real Estate to be an amazing listener. I still take elaborate notes and I listen very attentively to every detail that I buyer needs, or wants addressed. By becoming a great listener I key in on what really is in the heart of the buyer, what is right for them, and as a buyer's agent I know I will not skip one stone in doing my job 100% plus. It has always been my mission to give it my all and do my job with all my heart. We take great pride in ...
