Reality Check

With the stock market losing or gaining 200 points every other day, hurricanes, elections, and foreign turmoil - it can be hard to sift through everything and get the real story of what is going on. For us, we have sold a home nearly every day this month. While the markets can be difficult to navigate these days, we are still making it happen day in and day out. If we can serve you in the days ahead, please let me know. We look forward to that opportunity.

Local Distressed Property Expert Provides Guidance for Homeowners Trying to Avoid Foreclosure

Informative online report details foreclosure alternatives for homeowners facing unaffordable mortgage payments in Wichita Falls and North Texas.

Wichita Falls, TX – (August 14, 2011) – Local CDPE-designated agent, Ashton Gustafson of Bishop Realtor Group, has released a new report that provides 10 foreclosure solutions that can be used to avoid the costly effects of foreclosure. The report titled “At the End of Your Rope? 10 solutions for alleviating the stress of an unaffordable mortgage!” provides information for homeowners dealing with the stress of possible foreclosure.

“It’s incredibly stressful for homeowners to take action when they are faced with foreclosure,” Gustafson said.  “The reality is that over 6 million Americans missed a mortgage payment in April, so people should understand they are not alone.”

This community resource is available at In addition to providing more information about the alternatives to foreclosure, the report explains ten foreclosure alternatives that a homeowner can take advantage of like a loan modification or short sale.

A short sale occurs when a lender allows a homeowner to sell a property for less than the current mortgage amount owed.

“There are many alternatives to foreclosure that a distressed homeowner can choose from Gustafson said. “I can help tailor a solution that best fits the needs of distressed homeowners and gets them back on track to financial stability.”

The CDPE Designation that Gustafson has acquired provides a specific understanding of the complex issues confronting distressed homeowners.  Through comprehensive training and experience, CDPE-designated agents are able to provide solutions for homeowners facing financial hardship in today’s market.

Good Monday morning to you!

There's no doubt that after the weekend of texting, email updates, Twitter Feeds, and Facebook post on the S&P downgrade of the United States credit status, you probably have an uneasy feeling this morning. And of course the media will not help ease your uneasiness. Doom and glooms seems to sell better than having the TV anchors singing Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

And while I am not a financial planner or a master by any means of the Wall Street markets, I do work with people every day in what is typically their largest financial decision. The last 3 years have been very interesting, no doubt, but we have continued to serve our customers in the buying and selling of the American Dream.

Remember this feeling around 3 years ago. The world was coming to an end, right?

No. We made it. And not only did we make it, our market weathered this storm better than most of America. We never promise our clients appreciation in their Real Estate purchase. We do however promote (not promise) consistency. That seems to be our story in Wichita Falls and Texas. Now that we live in a day and age where volatility is the new norm, I’m glad to live in a market that is consistent.

If I can serve you or anyone you may know this week, please let me know.

Press on.

Financing Report
Many people have heard that finding financing for their next purchase is very difficult.
While the paperwork may be hefty, I have found that over 85% of the people I have worked with
this year do, indeed, qualify for financing of some sort. With rates at historical lows, there may never
be a better time to borrow money to purchase real estate. I work with many investors, and they are making
up a large part of the buying market. Always follow investors, they know when they see value.
