Maturity can sometimes be difficult. Delaying immediate gratification in order to achieve a more important goal down the road is not always an easy thing. What I want to talk about today is “financial maturity.” What are items that we should delay gratification for to achieve a more important result…Continue

Everyone wants to know: when will the pain be over.
When will the housing market bounce back?
When will unemployment drop below 9%? (cough, cough...the real # is around 17%)
Are we out of the recession? Will there be a double dip? (Hint: we are still sliding down the original dip)
Short sales are the symptom that won’t go away. Sort of like the annoying cousin who sticks around 2 weeks after the holidays have ended. You put up with them over eggnog but now…

When finally doing a budget, people get all fired up at first.
They understand what categories go where. What categories are for cash envelopes and what are for the checking account.
They understand their equity and debt position. And they understand how much money is coming in every month.
Essentially, they finally get it. Some are overwhelmed , some are encouraged....sometimes it’s a combination of both. But they get it.
The problem is what happens once they walk out the…
Episode 003- Debt, economy, & short sales
In this episode, I point out the fact that you need to prepare your own household. I link the economy to short sales and how they effect each other....and yes, they are connected.
There is a fine line between being positive and using common sense. My goal for this show, Fighting Back Financially, is to be honest and blunt with you. I feel this is the best way to help you not make the
same mistakes I…

This past weekend my lovely wife , Sharon, just made over $300 bucks from getting rid of a ton of stuff that was in our garage for a loooooooooong time.
Yes, I know what you are thinking: “Why didn’t you sell it sooner?”
We are not perfect. Busyness and life has happened in a major way the last few years.
Stuff has collected big time.
My wife is totally bent on purging and focusing on how we can save on Christmas gifts.
Which is awesome!
But another thing…

This part of my book pertains to directly dealing with the lender in a short sale. I hope you find it useful and entertaining:
Look, I know you are probably pissed, depressed, or just flat embarrassed that you even had to pick up a book like this to begin with......BUT the bottom line is that you signed the mortgage papers. I
know that hurts, it all hurts at this point. I get that.
What I don’t get is why would…Continue

Those famous words came from President Reagan at his second inaugural address.
They apply more today than ever before on so many levels, don’t you think?
- Why can’t you become debt free starting today?
- Since you can not afford that house, why not list it today and take
your first steps towards a short sale? Take your first steps towards
- You have planned and talked about it long enough. Isn’t it time to make the jump and get…

Another excerpt from my upcoming book, enjoy:
You have to know when to stop using your savings and please do not dip into your retirement. Lets string this out to the worst possible scenario. Lets say you try doing a short sale and the brilliant bank
denies it. This usually happens several times before it hits the
courthouse steps for a foreclosure sale. Then the bank has to relist
the house (under their name now) because most people…
