  1. It’s not just home buyers and sellers that are lying–the biggest liars I’ve run across are the mortgage brokers. I was personally scammed badly by a mortgage broker who acted like he was are best friend, then refused to answer the phone or messages for months when we really needed him. Essentially he committed fraud, but I don’t know if a court would see it that way or not. I make it a point to be upfront and honest with people I deal with in the foreclosure market. Is it asking to much for other people to act the same way?

  2. Vince Talerico on

    Diana, I have to agree with you on that. When I first got into the real estate business, I quickly learned to stay away from mortgage brokers. Unfortunately, any broker now has to go through my own personal “honesty checklist” which last for a minimum of 6 months to a year…unless they are an admirable friend of mine or family member, I just won’t deal with them.

  3. This is the questions, what constitute real estate fruad,misrepresentation,or bad faith. What types of things are suppose to be disclosed when selling a property? If tenants are behind in the rent? Do you have to tell the buyer before closeing or after?How do you know if financials for the property have been misrepresented?How can a property appraise higher before repairs are done,then major repairs like almost new kitchens,all new baths. A market analysis is done,an it comes back lower then the purchase price. A hundred thousand more or less. It is an investment property 6 units nice neighborhood. Can you explain this puzzle for me. Happy Holidays,Thank you
