Placed my first ad (finally)~“I Buy Houses”-type ad. Got a call from the employer of someone facing foreclosure, hasn’t made a p’mnt in over a year. The employer wants the guy to be able to stay in the house. Ugly divorce caused the problem. 3+2, appraised at $105K, owes $81K. What can I do for this guy? What should I be thinking right now? This is actually my first experience. The ad started yesterday and when I heard the voice mail message I got very nervous about returning the call and had to calm down before I could pick up the phone. No need to PANIC, Betsy! Anyway, no liens on the property. Wouldn’t give out the address just yet because there are 5 or 6 investors hounding the guy so I asked some questions about the divorce and the child involved (my interest is genuine),he talked about that for awhile and asked me to call him Monday afternoon for the address after he sees if HE can do anything without having to turn to an investor. All suggestions and advice welcome. Thanks (there ARE no stupid questions, right?).
