I have a really good Spam email blocker that I’ve been using for years which catches over 99.9% of unwanted emails but a few do get through once in awhile. One that got to my inbox today started with
“The California foreclosure explosion provides a great opportunity for CA real estate agents to help families and generate healthy commissions”.
It went on to supply a link to a marketing program to make boatloads of dollars by sitting on the beach doing Short Sales. I’m including the site here as I think it’s a HOOT to see what people will do to try to make a buck – http://www.myshortsaleclub.com/
If you read it you’ll learn such marketing practices as placing “bandit signs” everywhere and take the fines from the local city sign ordinance since you’ll be earning thousands on every short sale transaction anyways!
The reality is that I haven’t talked to a single REALTOR yet that hasn’t had a heck of a tough time dealing with a Short Sale and most want to AVOID them.
