Dear Ron Starr: as always, thank you for your reply. Please know that if I ever attend law school that you will be the first person I will invite to my graduation.
While I take your suggestion about taking real estate agent classes to heart and think that may be of some value to me, I think you may be over-estimating what is taught in those classes. I have several smart friends who have taken the classes and passed the exam. And to be honest, they know…hmmmm, how should I say this…they have very little practical knowledge about real estate, mortgages or how to run a business. Just today I got another email from a friend who took the classes a few months back, looking for property owner info. I doubt she could answer a question about priority of obligations. I don’t know what she learned in those classes. Mostly likely she learned how to pass the exam. If you were teaching the classes, I would pay top dollar.
So, how much are you asking for that 9-volume set?
Not to worry, I would never carry back 50% of anything. I was trying to figure out the position of a seller that foreclosed a couple of years ago. He had carried 50% and, as it turned out, he was in second position. He then satisfied the first and paid all the other debts against the property. And then agreed to sell to me for my asking price, which was less than he is into the property for. I have to admit that I find notes/paper very, very interesting and am always drawn to study up on the details of notes even on deals that don’t call for it.
I’ve determined that IF I ever attend law school, I’d like to specialize in elder law. Any suggetions for my future alma mater?
