  • Let’s have a little coffee talk about foreclosures on this Friday ☕️.
.
Confession....I thought it was Friday yesterday AND the day before...so, I’m glad it ACTUALLY IS Friday finally! 😂. Good grief Sara!  Get it together! .
Okay, I get lots of questions from clients about foreclosures, and while they can be a good “deal” in theory, I wanted to give you a little insight. 🧐.
.
I just had a Foreclosure transaction close yesterday finally for my wonderful (and extremely patient) clients looking to start an Airbnb business with this property in Medical Lake.🤗🏡🏕
.
👉🏼 We got our offer accepted on March 3rd with an initial closing date scheduled for March 22nd being a cash deal. 💵.
.
Through pulling title on the property I discovered there was NOT a clean title for the property, 🙄 and the bank actually never had clear title either....👎🏼👎🏼This can happen, and it’s important to read these documents! 📑 All of them!.
.
So, FIVE extensions later....Yes, 5! 😱 My buyers are finally the new owners WITH a clear title to the property and can begin working on their plans! 🏡.
.
So, as you consider foreclosures and the possibilities, it’s important to be informed of the following:.
.
➡️ These can take months to finally close and be a done deal.
➡️ There can be major issues that come up throughout the transaction.
➡️ Be diligent in your research with your broker.  Otherwise you could get stuck with a major issue down the road.
➡️ Go in knowing that it will test your patience 🙌🏼 Often times waiting days or even weeks for any response from the bank or asset manager.  This is hard, but just the way it goes.
.
Luckily for my clients those final wonderful recording numbers happened yesterday! 🤩 A day we both thought may never come with this one! .
.
Hopefully this information is helpful if you find yourself considering a short sale property or foreclosure down the road. ☺️.
.
I hope everyone has a fabulous long weekend too!  And side note, this photo was taken at an adorable Airbnb in @kendall_yards district and how perfect is that sign for me?!? 🙌🏼 Thanks to my amazing photographer @kayleenmichelle and her connections 😘👌🏼

  • This week it’s been all about #haulout and #Rockland, so we thought we’d throw a curveball for #ThrowbackThursday and post this picture of VICTORY CHIMES with #Castine across the stern.

#WaitWhat
.
This was back in #the50s when Captain Boyd sailed her.

She didn’t sail out of #CastineMaine, but that’s where he lived, so perhaps as an ode to #HomeSweetHome, Castine was her home flag, so to speak.

She’s been a #Rocko #schooner for longer then she called any other place  home, so it’s safe to say now that she’s not #fromaway.

Actually, maybe that was 2003, when she was immortalized on the back of the #Maine quarter when that whole series was rolling out.

Because you’ve got to be pretty darn “Maine” to be on the state quarter!

You can argue about whether she’s a “#Mainer” or not, but she’s definitely from Rockland!

  • “Last Supper”— Welp, tonight is my last official night as a Maryland resident. I’m having mixed emotions at this time, but grateful for the incredible experience. I want to give my sincerest and most humbled gratitude to these two beautiful ladies, my hearts 💕 Jessie and Lida, for their help, support, and resilience to see me successfully through this arduous move. Lida flew all the way from Boston to help me!  I am beyond moved. I love them to death—my “ride or die” sisters will always have my unwavering loyalty and respect. What they accomplished was nothing short of amazing.  And, of course, my baby Mark did his thing—as always. This is my third consecutive move that he’s helped me with, taking the lead and supporting my every goal, aspiration, and next venue. I can’t believe the amazing close circle of family I have in my life. What a blessing 👼! Onward and upwards! I’ll be back in a month to kick off a very special transit summer school pilot program at Cardozo High School, co-hosted by my newest passion, “iyai+” (Introducing Youth to American Infrastructure +) organization. Until then, I’ll be working on some entrepreneurial venues lol—Yes, and also finally enjoying the retirement life, which is affording me the opportunity to finally pursue some of my passions. Not done there either, more to come—stay tuned, folks! 
God bless, Family -& Friends!
