Hi Mrs. Moore,

One of the larger firms in Las Vegas that handles short sales is an attorney by the name of Jaime Cogburn.

I believe their number is 702-384-5599.

If you're not happy with them let me know and I will be more than happy to assist.

Thanks and I hope this helps.

Eleana I am glad you asked. This is one of the things that the FBI is looking for in invetigating mortgage fraud. It is a practice known as flopping and will trigger a FBI review of the transaction.

Flopping, Short Sales, and Broker Price Opinions

Perpetrators are conducting short sale property flipping schemes using distressed properties of homeowners who are unemployed or facing foreclosure. The perpetrators collude with appraisers or real estate agents to undervalue the property using an appraisal or a broker price opinion to further manipulate the price down (the flop) to increase their profit margin when they later flip the property.68 They negotiate a short sale with the bank or lender, purchase the property at the reduced price and flip it to a pre-selected buyer at a much higher price.

Here is a link to the FBI mortgage fraud page.

Our board (GLVAR) offers classes on how to set up client automated email drips via our MLS. It can be done!

The only thing I don't like about it is the search expires in 60 days. If they are on for long periods of time you have to go and renew the drips every 59 days. There is a dashboard on the home page that does tell us when the prospect matches expire but I don't look at it all the time :)

I would say, enjoy your purchase--pay your bills ontime--don't lose your job--after 28 years, the condo will be yours. Good Luck

On my blog I recently dicussed the data that has come in from DQNews ( that reports a considerable up tick in southland homes sales as of September of this year.

According to the article, "Southern California sales shot up by an unprecedented 65% last month from the
dismal record lows of a year ago." It also references that REO or Bank Owned properties for sales make
up approximately half of the 20,497 new and resale and condos that have sold since September of 2007.

At our brokerage, we are definitely seeing the rewards of this trends and we mirror the reported So Cal
stats with a considerable portion of our pending and closed sales coming from Bank Owned homes.
Moreover, the trending is really helping our agents have meaningful conversations with current sellers
about pricing strategies that can either help them enter the market with gusto or stay on the sidelines until
the market rebounds.

From purely an investment standpoint, I don't think any of the hotel/condo or "condotels" are the best thing one can do with their money. However, for someone who will use the property for occasional personal use, and enjoy the unit and all the amenities, I think it makes sense. It's quite an impressive project and I really think you've got to look at the rental aspect of these properties as subsidizing your vacation residence...just my opinion ;) ... more
