Victim of Foreclosure: Who is to Blame?

23 Articles Written
Those who knew me before I got into real estate, often comment that I am now, much more skeptical of what people say. Some have said that I am downright pessimistic.

    You did a nice thing for this stupid woman. She’s probably in some other sort of trouble now. Trainwrecks live on their self-created drama. Next time you can go for the home run with a clear conscience.

    You gave her a hand by helping her stay out of foreclosure. This situation is a lot like donating money. You get no benefit, but if it done with the intention of helping others it will come back to you ten fold. Good for you, and not looking at strictly the money side of things.

    Great story. You did the right thing. There are other ways to make home runs. Though if I were you I would contact her and ask for referrals and other business. She at least owes you that much. Nonetheless, great job – it is true, this business is about people not houses!

    I think you definitely did the right thing, considering that her situation was so easy to solve. When people are overloaded with stress, even the most obvious solutions don’t cross their minds – that’s when disaster strikes. Even though she never called you again, don’t doubt that she still isn’t grateful from the very core of her being. That’s how life is… you mean to do something, but your whole life passes you by and you haven’t even done it! And I’m not surprised with this woman, either, seeing that she couldn’t even beg, borrow or steal $4,000 to free herself; she would have much less of a drive to call you up. However, feel good knowing that you did a good thing for someone – not for the fact that there would be some reward, or that you would feel good, but for the fact that you solve some poor sap’s problem.

    Good to hear a investor talk about being a good servant! Your 2008 will bring your return!
