The Hottest Looking People in Banking

What company has the “best hiring practices” in the industry?  Well there’s actually a site that has this data and of course, we checked it out.

We know it’s weird to tell you when we have someone that wants to quit Listing Booster, but the stories are so amazing we can’t help but share them.  Just to let you know we have a cancellation rate at Listing Booster of only 3% which is almost unheard of, so we don’t get many cancellations.  Most of the cancellations we get are impulse buyers that never take the time to go in and works the system, but once in a while we get a fun one.  We have a user that has had the system for 6 months that has gotten over 200 leads.  Leads of which the user admittedly says have lead to closings.  Why someone would quit that we can’t fathom, but we will say this – If you want to get Listing Booster and sock in a couple hundred leads real quick and then quit, feel free.  To get more information on how Listing Booster works – CLICK HERE.

mjaxms1motyxndu2yjuxyjdmmwqyNow on with the show, and keep in mind today’s show isn’t only about hot people in banking.  There is some other more industry worthy information for your consumption.  But we found if funny to learn about the site Hinge.co – yes that’s dot “co” not dot com.  Hinge is for professional people to meet each other.  The interesting thing is that they track all kinds of data.  For example, which bank has the hottest people?  Which bank had the least “picky” people?  Yeah, stuff like that.  So naturally we had to determine which company had the hottest, least picky people which we did.  The answer is inside, so you’ll have to tune in to see.  Hey come on, it’s a fun way to start your real estate or mortgage day – admit it.

With that you all have a great day and we’ll see you tomorrow.

poor-door2-e1375452123788Now on to the “poor door”.  Essentially what we’ve got here is a Manhattan developer that built some multi-million dollar condo’s in a highrise, but in order to be able to get the permit to build he had to have a certain amount of low to moderate income homes in the complex.  Well, he figured the rich people wouldn’t want to rub elbows with the poor people while waking through the front door, so he made another door in the alley around the back that people are calling the “poor door”.  Okay…. Uh, what do you think about this?  Cool? Not cool?  Compliant?  Not compliant?  Seems a little dicey to us, how about you?  Let us know what you think about it in the comments down below.

Zillow-Trulia Possible Antitrust Case?

July 29, 2014 FHA/HUD, Trulia, Zillow 47 Comments

There is some rumbling about a possible antitrust case with the Zillow-Trulia merger.

Before we jump into today’s show, let’s go over something.  There’s a lot of you out there that buy mortgage leads.  The problem is keeping track of them from start to finish to make sure you’re getting a good ROI.  Well, LoanTek has you covered.  These guys are the base in the industry and what’s more is they will let you try their product while you’re finishing out your contract on your inferior product to see how good it really is.  So to get started – CLICK HERE.

monopolyman1Now on to the show.  You’ll be amazed how much the out-going HUD Secretary and the incoming look like Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro… Just sayin…  Anyway on to other things.  There is some rumbling about an antitrust issue with the Zillow/Trulia merger.  Some folks, like us, think there might be some kind of monopoly at hand here with what’s really a third of the US economy.  Hey don’t get us wrong we think we could all learn a thing or two from Zillow and Trulia.  They’ve boldly gone where no site has gone before, but are they leaving real estate agents in their wake?  Time will tell and we’ll see how this unfolds, but tune in to see what other thoughts we have on the matter.

You all have a nice day!

The 2 Billion Dollar Trulia

July 28, 2014 Trulia, Zillow 14 Comments

2 billions dollars for Trulia and it looks like the deal is going through.  Think about 2 billion dollars.  Why is Trulia worth so much?

Hey guys and gals, if you’ve got some of those people who are in that in-between place, you know that 3 to 5 years after a bankruptcy or short sale and you get get them into a home, check out the Mortgage Alternative Program.  These guys will make sure your client can afford the home they want, and then buy it for them!  Yep on an extended escrow that can last up to 6 years.  Then when they’re ready, you can do their purchase loan to take them out.  Oh, and the real estate agent get’s their commission on the sale!  To learn more CLICK HERE.

Trulia 2 billionNow on to the show.  Really don’t want to get into it too deep here, would rather you just watch the show, but the question today for us is to really try and comprehend why Trulia is worth $2 billion.  What is it about them that’s made Zillow who’s clearly bigger want them in their fold.  Let me tell you…. it’s your clients that’s why it’s worth so much.  Well if your clients are worth so much to Zillow and Trulia, how much are they worth to you?  And if you feel like they’re worth a lot to you, how do you make sure that they know it?

Tune in and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Have a great week!
