Did you know that you could increase your credit score from 5 to 45 points by "opting-out" of receiving preapproved/prescreened offers of credit or insurance for five years?  We learned this information through one of our Realtor Association Training Classes.

If you "opt-out" permanently, you will not receive the increase in credit score.

What is Electronic Opt-Out for Five Years?
Opting-Out refers to the process for removing your name from lists supplied by the Consumer Credit Reporting Companies, Equifax, Experian, Innovis and TransUnion, to be used for firm (preapproved / prescreened) offers of credit or insurance. Your rights as a consumer under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) include the right to "Opt-Out" for 5 years or permanently.

Are You In Over Your Head in Mortgage Payments?

Without calling us first, one family decided on their own to go through foreclosure, even though they only owed $475,000.  Their property had a conservative market value of $550,000!!! 

That family made a tremendous mistake.  They ruined their credit for 7 years, gave up all the equity in their property, and they will have a difficult time purchasing a house or a car for the next seven years.  All they had to do was sell their house.

 If you feel like you overwhelmed, we have documented TWELVE different legitimate options you have.  Call 510.427.7165 to receive your free copy of the twelve options, and we'll talk about your best strategy!

What kind of training and support does United Brokers Real Estate give to our agents, to help our clients?  Well, here is a sample scenario we provide through training:

You are representing your seller in a short sale transaction.  You have worked really hard, and you just got an offer accepted.  Congratulations, you did great!
 
Much time passes... at the very last moment, ten days before the close of escrow, the seller's lender states, "Purchase price to be $475,000 ($10,000 higher than the original offer price).  Gross compensation to be 4%." 
 
Two Problems:   1)  The Buyers are expecting to only pay $465,000.    2)  The Selling Agent is demanding 3% because that is what you put in the MLS. 
 
You forgot to state in the MLS:
“Short sale and gross commission subject to lender approval.
Any commission reduction to be split 50/50.”
 
In the Counter Offer, you forgot to state:
 
Offer subject to third party lender approval.
 
You spent 4+ months working, the sellers have to pay $10,000 they don't have, and you have to give up your compensation (and then some) to try to get out of this mess. 
 
Let that be a lesson learned that you did not have to experience for yourself.

In San Leandro and San Lorenzo, as of 8/22/07, there were over 685 properties on the market.  Quite a change from the sellers market of a few years ago, when there was only 85 properties available.  Are we still moving inventory?  Absolutely!  Call us to find out more.

Have you already purchased a "Timeshare"?
 
If you have, then you already know what I am talking about.  If you haven't, then you'll want to know about them BEFORE you ever step into a presentation.
 
Our company would never sell timeshares because it typically requires the salesperson "to encourage" a buyer to make a quick decision in a high pressure environment.  Sometimes, a decision that a buyer later regrets.
 
Contact United Brokers Real Estate to find out more BEFORE you find yourself sitting in front of a timeshare presentation.  Armed with the facts, you can make a knowledgable decision.  (Learn about the world before you venture into it.)

Beware of Identity Theft
 
 
============================================
 
10. Don't lose your house to foreclosure recovery scams!

If any firm claims they can stop your foreclosure immediately if you sign a document appointing them to act on your behalf, you may well be signing over the title to your property and becoming a renter in your own home!  Never sign a legal document without reading and understanding all the terms and getting professional advice from an attorney, a trusted real estate professional, or a HUD approved housing counselor.
 
Predators will devour you in your weakest state.
 
Call United Brokers Real Estate for professional advice.
