Short Sales, Contract for Deed, Lease Options and the Exciting Life of a Real Estate Lawyer

Bold title there, huh? You might be wondering the reason. Well, I’ll tell you! I attended some Continuing Education today as a part of my real estate license requirements.

I wasn’t too excited about the prospect when I woke up this morning, but Harry Borders did a great job with the 3 hours he was given and I feel wiser for having attended.

The topics are extremely complicated but important as he said experts predict 50% of all real estate transactions 18-months from now will be short sales or similar “distressed” situations. Wow. That’s a huge number!

I’m far from a Short Sale expert but Harry’s class was good for me. I feel somehow healthier and better informed to help my clients and that’s what it’s all about.

The Internet’s 8,253,047th Blog

I have several blogs already. I have a personal one where I live under an alias and talk about anything and everything that pops into my mind. That place is hardly contains professional material; more, it’s just the fun and amazing things I come across.

Then there’s LouisvilleHomesBlog.com which I started back in 2006 to focus on real estate news and advice for home buyers and sellers. Specifically targeting Louisville, Kentucky, this site gives unbiased information about trends and such without much self promotion at all.

Next comes SpringhurstNeighborhood.com which has an even more narrow focus… the community in which I live. I basically just update this site monthly with data about sold properties. Of course, all active listings for Springhurst can be found on my personal site.

So with all this, why would I need yet another Web site?

What I’m thinking, and feel free to tell me I’m crazy, is that I need a place to tell my stories—my everyday dealings with clients. I’ve had some great clients who keep me up-to-date and appreciate all my hard work. And I’ve had my share of crazies. It’s these kinds of stories that I’ll put on this blog.

Plus! If you have any specific questions, I’ll try to entertain those here as well.

But it’s very informal so please… take your shoes off, grab an ice cold beverage and sit back… we’re all friends here.
