The title insurance that you purchase should insure that you have a clear title at close of escrow. I would recommend that you speak with a title representative from the company that is providing the title insurance and discuss your specific situation. Ask your real estate agent to put you in contact with the local title representative. ... more

Good morning Max. The listing on Valjean in Granada Hills is:
11453 Valjean, Granada Hills. This is listed as a short sale offered at $399,000.
If you are not currently working with a real estate agent I would like to offer my services as a Buyers Agent. I work with Amerimac Real Estate Services and we give buyers up to 50% of the commission we earn on the sale of the property. In this case the Rebate to you could be as much as $5,985.00
If you have any interest please contact me at:

Hello Realestate18,

I too have tried to break into the REO game. I have spent about $1000 and so far nothing.

I joined Equator, and paid for their Platinum certification. I joined a few directories and signed up with four asset management companies. I have concludes that most of the REO listings are going to a few brokers who have been in the REO business for a while and have well established relationships with the asset managers for the banks. Some bank asset managers assign one broker up to 100 listings at a time. In Orange county where I work we have two or three brokers getting most of the REO business! If you go on Equator and check listings you will see the same brokers/agents over and over. Some banks now claim to be trying to have listings assigned to agents closest to the property. I guess we have to wait and see if they apply this idea, and if so perhaps the door will open for some new REO agents.

Best of luck to you.

Kawain Payne

You know you have a good deal when you can afford the mortgage payments and you look forward to going home.

LA, You can check with your City or County planning or building departments. Some actually are on-line and allow you to do a "records" search to see the history of permits for the property. If not just take the address down and ask them. Many will look it up or you or hand you a 'microfiche" record which you can see through a "viewer". But a word of caution. Neighbors who live in glass houses should not throw stones! You had better make sure your house is in order. Retaliation by your neighbor can make your living a nightmare!! ... more
