 This week in Real Estate in Milwaukee

 Feb 8, 2016
 Tell me it ain't so. I just searched for duplexes in Milwaukee. 3 bedrooms on the lower and a 2 car garage up to $90,000. Results showed 2 available. Are listings really that low? I checked 2 bedroom units with a 1 car garage or large. About the same results. If your thinking about listing a duplex, NOW is the time to act. Don't wait, there are more buyers out there than units available. And when you list with me, I have a fantastic deal for you. Talk about quality. I define quality services.

Online Auctions

I was on the phone with a friend today. He was just walking into a house he won on an online auction. As he walked through the house he told me, they removed the doors, counter tops, plumbing fixtures, sinks, light fixtures, ceiling fans, air conditioning units, and a host of other items. The house was stripped clean.

As a licensed Broker in the State of Wisconsin, we receive hours of training on auctions. State licensed auctioneers have pages of laws to abide by, and are required to provide specific documents to potential buyers. Online auctions often consider themselves immune to state laws. In this case, I can't be sure what happened, who removed those items, or what the motive was. All I know is, that sale did not involve a standard state approved Offer to Purchase covering exactly what fixtures are and what is included in the sale of a house. This is a good lesson to learn, state approved contracts are designed to protect both parties involved in the sale of Real Estate. Auctions may or may not use standard Real Estate contracts. Auctions run by state licensed auctioneers have certain protection for buyers. Online auctions may or may not be conducted by state licensed auctioneers. Why take the risk? 

 Tip of the Week

Date: January 31, 2016
Did you ever think about buying a tool to read codes on your car when the check engine light goes on? The tool is $50 but taking the car to a shop can cost $80 or MORE. All this tool does is plug in under the dash, gets the code from the computer, and will erase the code. Most times that's all you need to do. If it saves you $80 one time, it paid for itself. You can enter the code into an Internet search to tell you what the problem may be. And most times a video on how to fix it yourself. But beware, most codes can narrow the problem down to 3-4 things that may cause the problem. But garages usually begin with the most expensive and work their way down.

Anti-Money Laundering Guidelines for Real Estate Professionals

In an effort to combat money laundering in the real estate sector, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) at the Treasury Department issued a Geographic Targeting Order (GTO) that will temporarily require certain U.S. title insurance companies to identify the natural persons behind companies used to pay "all cash" for high-end residential real estate in Manhattan and Miami-Dade County. NAR has argued, and the Treasury Department agrees, that real estate agents and brokers are not in a position to detect money laundering since the funds involved in real estate transactions are handled through regulated financial institutions. NAR has worked closely with FINCEN and Treasury to develop voluntary guidelines for real estate professionals to identify signs of money laundering. 

Drive Safely

These are some of the most eye opening videos I've seen online and I'd like to remind you all of a few safety rules I used to teach.
Never take your eyes off the road.
Always be aware of where you are and plan an escape route every few hundred feet.
Know where to go to avoid any obstacle at all time.
Drive only as fast as conditions allow.
If sight is impaired, count off 1-1000, 2-1000, 3-1000, 4-1000. Or 1 Mississippi …. At least once a mile. This will tell you distance traveled in 4 seconds.
Remember it will take you 2 seconds to react and 2 seconds to make a decision and react. 2 seconds is not a lot of time.
And don't use your cell phone while driving. Not even hands free whenever roads are slippery and never when traffic is around.
Please be careful. God loves you and so do a lot of people here.

Find Local Help in the Milwaukee area for Short Sale and Foreclosure Assistance


Pre-Foreclosure Sales

This is a special pre-foreclosure program for homeowners facing foreclosure. This program is not associated with any government agency or program. This program is designed for homeowners behind in their payments who want to avoid the foreclosure process by selling their property at market price and keep the majority of equity in your home by paying less in Real Estate Commissions.

Internet Links with Help for Foreclosures

I searched for local Milwaukee help for short sales and seemed to get everything except a link to a local Milwaukee web site. It seems the pay for search result sites are on the top of the list when you need help. Are these the kind of sites you really want to visit when you are searching for someone local you can talk to?
