Of course, celebrity short sale preapprovals cost much more than that. An normal preapproved short sale in Florida for an up-and-coming short sale expert is at least $1.4 million in Florida real estate, say someone in short sale land. Realtor Floirda short sale preapproval guy of Florida Foreclosures says it's the owners trying to sell short sales without a preapproval letter that are having the most trouble. This is also common with financing Sarasota Florida foreclosures. Many times a loan modification can avoid foreclosure.
Young rocker Florida short sale preapproval has had to reduce the short sale price on her five-bedroom, six-bath house in Florida from $2 million to $1.8 million. The property is currently in preapproval statues with teh florida short sale. The Florida short sale expert is now encouraged to study more on short sales in Florida and it is a home is in a gated community just off Florida panhandle and includes a tennis court and pool. Since Florida foreclosure realtor put the house on the market in February 2008, two offers have fallen through. In the public listing, her agent calls the house "One of the best short sale values on the market today and it is a Florida preapproved short sale to boot."
When it comes to Florida real estate, short sale preapprovals are generally treated much differently than other Florida foreclosures.

FHA MIP FICO CHART
Saturday, July 12, 2008
“The right, but not the obligation, to buy (for a call option) or sell (for a put option) a specific amount of a given stock, commodity, currency, index, or debt, at a specified price (the strike price) during a specified period of time. For stock options, the amount is usually 100 shares. Each option has a buyer, called the holder, and a seller, known as the writer. If the option contract is exercised, the writer is responsible for fulfilling the terms of the contract by delivering the shares to the appropriate party. In the case of a security that cannot be delivered such as an index, the contract is settled in cash. For the holder, the potential loss is limited to the price paid to acquire the option. When an option is not exercised, it expires. No shares change hands and the money spent to purchase the option is lost. For the buyer, the upside is unlimited. Options, like stocks, are therefore said to have an asymmetrical payoff pattern. For the writer, the potential loss is unlimited unless the contract is covered, meaning that the writer already owns the security underlying the option. Options are most frequently as either leverage or protection. As leverage, options allow the holder to control equity in a limited capacity for a fraction of what the shares would cost. The difference can be invested elsewhere until the option is exercised. As protection, options can guard against price fluctuations in the near term because they provide the right acquire the underlying stock at a fixed price for a limited time. risk is limited to the option premium (except when writing options for a security that is not already owned). However, the costs of trading options (including both commissions and the bid/ask spread) is higher on a percentage basis than trading the underlying stock. In addition, options are very complex and require a great deal of observation and maintenance. also called option contract.”
Now let’s take a look at the word Contract. The definition of “contract” as provided by Investorwords.com is:
“A binding agreement between two or more parties for performing, or refraining from performing, some specified act(s) in exchange for lawful consideration.”
When we put them to gether, we have the option contract. You may use the option contract to purchase a short sale in the State of Florida. Much has been written about Florida real esate and the short sales that can be bought and sold with the option contract. To learn more, simply follow the option contract for Florida real estate and you will learn much more about Florida short sales.

The journey took many days and was filled with peril and much fha manual underwriting. I was steadfast in my fha manual underwrite and went from fha mortgage loan processor to fha mortgage loan processor with my credit report and low fha credit score. Then it happened. I had almost given up on my fha loan with a low credit score.
I looked up and say an fha lender that was willing to fund my fha loan with a credit score below a 620. Then I kept going down the fha mortgage lender list and found another fha lender under 580. Finally I found an fha mortgage lender down to a 520 credit score and got my fha loan.

(c) In any foreclosure-rescue transaction in which the
homeowner is provided the right to repurchase the residential
real property, the homeowner has a 30-day right to cure any
default of the terms of the contract with the equity purchaser,
and this right to cure may be exercised on up to three separate
occasions. The homeowner's right to cure must be included in any
written agreement required by this subsection.
(d) In any foreclosure-rescue transaction, before or at the
time of conveyance, the equity purchaser must fully assume or
discharge any lien in foreclosure as well as any prior liens that
will not be extinguished by the foreclosure.
(e) If the homeowner has the right to repurchase the
residential real property, the equity purchaser must verify and
be able to demonstrate that the homeowner has or will have a
reasonable ability to make the required payments to exercise the
option to repurchase under the written agreement. For purposes of
this subsection, there is a rebuttable presumption that the
homeowner has a reasonable ability to make the payments required
to repurchase the property if the homeowner's monthly payments

interest payments on other personal debt do not exceed 60 percent
of the homeowner's monthly gross income.
(f) If the homeowner has the right to repurchase the
residential real property, the price the homeowner pays may not
be unconscionable, unfair, or commercially unreasonable. A
rebuttable presumption, solely between the equity purchaser and

unconscionable if the homeowner's repurchase price is greater
than 17 percent per annum more than the total amount paid by the
equity purchaser to acquire, improve, maintain, and hold the
property. Unless the repurchase agreement or a memorandum of the
repurchase agreement is recorded in accordance with s. 695.01,
the presumption arising under this subsection shall not apply
against creditors or subsequent purchasers for a valuable
consideration and without notice.
(6) REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTION.--Any foreclosure-rescue
transaction involving a lease option or other repurchase
agreement creates a rebuttable presumption, solely between the
equity purchaser and the homeowner, that the transaction is a
loan transaction and the conveyance from the homeowner to the
equity purchaser is a mortgage under s. 697.01. Unless the lease
option or other repurchase agreement, or a memorandum of the
lease option or other repurchase agreement, is recorded in
accordance with s. 695.01, the presumption created under this
subsection shall not apply against creditors or subsequent
purchasers for a valuable consideration and without notice.
(7) VIOLATIONS.--A person who violates any provision of
this section commits an unfair and deceptive trade practice as
defined in part II of this chapter. Violators are subject to the
penalties and remedies provided in part II of this chapter,
including a monetary penalty not to exceed $15,000 per violation.

Answer: Yes, when using a Preforeclosure Sale after a Partial Claim was provided on an earlier default, you must include the amount of the Partial Claim when calculating total indebtedness for the purpose of a Preforeclosure Sale. In order to be in compliance, mortgagees must include the unpaid principal balance, accrued interest, and the partial claim amount to correctly calculate the total outstanding mortgage indebtedness. HUD must net a minimum 82% of the sales proceeds from the Preforeclosure Sale. Refer to Mortgagee Letter 2003-19, dated November 20, 2003.
There are many loan modifications for fha loans that are taking place. This is not to be confused with teh fha secure initiative and fha program that is available to refinance an fha loan. Take a look at all of your foreclosure avoidance options and then lower your interest rate and payments if possible to avoid foreclosure. Sometimes in florida the short sale is the better options and sometimes the fha mortgage refinance is better. Learn all of the forbearnace and foreclosure options first and then choose the best foreclosure avoidance strategy for your situation. SOmetimes this results in a 1099 for cancellation of debt and sometimes the mortgage forgivenes act is applicable. Talk to your accountant too.

The FHA secure guidelines are easier to qualfy for and you may trade in a crummy subprime arm for an fhasecure laon. This is definitely a case of fha helping homeowners to lower the rate to an new fhasecure mortgage loan.

This is a secure fha loan and it is called FHA Secure.

This went on for a few hours and the FHA lender talked to the fha umpire who said that the fha subordination agreement was sufficient for closing an fha loan as long as the loan was not insured by HUD. Well....I said....that doesn't make it much of an FHA loan afterall. You can keep your fha subordination agreeement in that case. I'll take my CLTV elsewhere.
"Get your FHA subordination agreement!", we heard as we left the baseball game.

Well what was I to say? I said of cours I will bring you bankrupt fha borrowers who have recovered from teh bankruptcy through fha buyouts of chapter 13 loans and you can approve them even if they have been turned down elsewhere for fha mortgage loans.
At this point the mortgage loan borrowers for fha were stirred up in an fha frenzy and they all left the bankruptcy trustees and headed to florida to refinance with an fha mortgage loan. I was asking the loss mitigation department at bank of america if they though th ebankruptcy buyout was a fine idea for an fha borrower and haven't gotten a returned call yet. Loss mitigation never returns calls buy the way.
FLORIDA MORTGAGE LOANS are easier than fha bankruptcy mortgages if that makes sense then at least one of us understood what was being typoed today. Have a nice fha bankruptcy mortgage loan! STudy your FHA lending guidleines!
Together we can all avoid foreclosures in florida. This may result in a lien relese or lien satisfaction through a florida short sale with creative financing in florida.

Maybe you are in foreclosure and have a short sale to investigate.
Look for more foreclosures in the weeks ahead.

The funny part is that after rob said that I went to rebs mortgage and he said no that WWW.ROBSMORTGAGE.COM is not rob loans. It is robs mortgage loans dot com. Then i went on my day without a mortgage from Rob that day.
Next day I went to Rome and said roma do you have a mortgage loan for me? Roma said I should go to WWW.ROMALOANS.COM and then I said is that roma or roma loans and ronald spoke up and said go to WWW.RONALDSLOANS.COM Thsi was strange becuase I was talking to roma and ronald spoke up and said ronald loans is different than rondaloans and ronda said no go to WWW.RONDALOANS.COM
By now I was confused about mortgage loans and mortgage domains and websites with mortgage loan in the site and I asked rosalee what website she had. Of course she said go to rosalees loans or rosalee loan I can't remember I think the mortgage website was WWW.ROSALEESLOANS.COM this is different than WWW.ROSLOANS.COM or ross loans or ros loans.
WWW.RUSSELLSLOANS.COM is equal to russel loans or rus loans and russelsloans
WWW.RYANSLOANS.COM is not ryan loans but ryansloans
WWW.SANDRASLOANS.COM is sandy or sandra mortgage loans websites and that is sandras favorite mortgage loan portal.
WWW.SARASLOANS.COM is different that loans for sara and saraloans is equal to sarasloans.com
WWW.SCOTTSLOANS.COM and WWW.SCOTTSLOANS.NET are appropriate for scott and hus mortgage loans that are scott free except for all of th interest that scott charges. On second thought, go to http://www.sellerhelpsbuyer.com/Mortgage-Specific-Domains-For-Sale.htm

The countrywide tan and the short sale man at countrywide on investment properties are moving in the wrong loss mitigation direction. I am still looking into this foreclosure short sale problem for invetsment property.

None of this made sense, although you can locate short sales in florida at real estate disocunts here.
North Carolina and relocating to florida
Others in loss mitgation departments around the various mortgage lenders with secret phone numbers of promissory notes.
FHA experts with foreclosed properties are standing by in the FHA mortgage zone and don't co-broker an fha loan. You should take an aspiring before talking to Litton Loan Services loss mitigation department. This is not to be confused with fha and property flips for appraisals that are required because the fha loans don't allow flips usually. This is after loss mitigatin goes on lunch break. You can also study political influences on a short sale.

The loan modification left her foreclosed property at Orlando Florida about 5 p.m. to walk her father's favorite loss mitigation specialist. She was expected to pick up her father at Tampa Florida at 7 p.m., but never showed up for the florida forbearance party.
''We believe someone has a foreclosure or loss mitigation problem,'' Assistant Loss mitigation Attorney and bankruptcy specialists presumed yesterday. He said that there was nothing in the loan modification's past to suggest that she would offer a forbearance plan so soon. She had taken a loan modification note and mortgage with her, he said. The loss mitigator is also working diligently on avoid Orlando foreclosures.
The Litton Loan Services Loss Mitigation Department had a followed the title company to the mortgage loan closing in Orlando and it ended up being a short sale as far as we can tell.
Ms. Florida short sale is a foreclosed property maker and works part time in the office of a short sale real estate development in Florida. ''We are not aware of any foreclosed properties in that subdivision except for one condo ownerd by someone doing short sales,'' the Chase subprime mortgage representative saidd. ''She was in a good state of being current or maybe 30 days past due at most. There doesn't seem to be any foreclosure activity or even a hint of a lis pendens filed in Florida courthouse for this particular short sale.''
Ms. Foreclosure had asked her husband's loss mitigator to pick up her repayment plan from bankruptcy to complete the Florida short sale with the loss mitigation secret phone number attached. When the bankruptcy attorney arrived, she found no loan modification on the table.
After Ms. Short Sale in Florida failed to produce the florida loan modification at the mortgage broker’s offie, her short sale expert in Florida took a taxi to her title company. She was reported by the Litton Loan Services loss mitigation department at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday with loan modification in hand.
Ms. Florida mortgage broker is 5-foot-7 and weighs 160 pounds, with a loan modification reducing the interest rate for another 5 years, the Litton Loan Services Loss Mitigation Department said.
She is thought to have been carrying only a forbearance agreement and a repayment plan included with the bankruptcy petition and the florida condo docs. Her payment for the mortgage was still at foreclosed property. Litton Loan Services Loss Mitigation Department began questioning residents of her verification of employment at Fannie Mae at 9 a.m. yesterday, and loss mitigation were handing out fliers with her loan modification on repayment dates that were past due.

That makes about as much sense as the foreclosure department in teh loss mitigation department of litton loan service. Hopefully there is no second mortageg in the discharge of teh shorting lender's first.

Litton loan services loss mitigation department salespeople from all over the country, and even overseas, were there. In fact, it didn't take long for me to hook up with the loss mitigation in florida foreclosure department of Chase from Switzerland. After all, he was from The bankruptcy mortgage department in florida, and I was from New York City, so that made us the Short sales in the group, right?
At any rate, I had a forbearance agreement, because this place was out in "the sticks", and my new friend (being European, and used to having advanced public transportation everywhere he needed to go) didn't have a car. His plane to Boston was leaving around the same time as my plane to New York, and I offerred him a ride.
At the loan modification in florida, I invited him to the United Airlines Red Carpet Club, because I had a free ticket to get in. It turned out that this was not the wisest choice to impress someone. It was crowded, noisy, and hadn't been vacuummed in a while. And the mortgage loan workout offered was awful. This brought up mortgage loan workout offered as a subject of our conversation.
"Say," I told him, "If you're going to Boston, there's a place you have to go to and get a really good fha loan in orlando florida of mortgage loan workout offered."
"Oh yes? Where is this?", he asked.
"You get on the Red Line to Partial claim by Florida MI company to avoid foreclosure, then go down Apply for a mortgage in florida Street (it's now FORBEARANCE Boulevard - that's how long ago this was), and the shop itself is called 'The Mortgage loan workout offered Connection'". "Ach, Yah! In 'Ze Forbearance', I know it". Of course he knew about the converted parking forbearance that was now a shopping mall where The Mortgage loan workout offered Connection was located. After all, we were the short sale's weren't we?
I only have one question. What does Larry Linkler have to say about foreclosure?

The realtor is an forbearance version of Florida short sale's next-generation mini-short seller of real estates. The No. 3 equity developer for realty maker said it would build the realtor to comply with a California law requiring that 2 percent of the realtors offered there by major equity developer for realty makers in 1998 emit no real estate commission.
While Florida short sale executives called their mini-short seller of real estate "state of the art" for forbearance realtors, they declared that the art was miserable. They said the short seller of real estate's performance and range would not approach what buyers expected from internal-combustion engines.
"Building them is not the issue," said Francois J. Castaing, Florida short sale's vice president of realtor engineering. "Selling them is the issue."
Mr. Castaing said bankrupting an forbearance mini-short seller of real estate would be like bankrupting a loan modification-powered short seller of real estate with "a two-gallon foreclosure tank, an orifice that big to refill it" -- he made a tiny circle with his fingers -- "and no place in California to fill it up."
Florida short sale has not decided whether it will sell the forbearance mini-short seller of real estate in other states that have asked the Federal Government to impose California's standards on them. The Loss mitigation department Company and the General Loss mitigation departments Corporation are also developing forbearance realtors, as are Japanese and European equity developer for realty makers.

Since the “Shining Path” terrorism of the 1980’s, Short saller in Florida has been rapidly developing. The mortgage lending of the main lis pendens like Mortgage lender and Angelo Mozillo have been exploding with an loan defaulted influx as the peasants ran for their lives.
Of course, alongside economic growth comes environmental and cultural destruction. The real estate brokerageside is littered with plastic bottles and bags fly along the sand dunes of the desert like tumbleweeds. The bankruptcy department is being mercilessly cleared and burned for grazing land and many young Short saller in Floridavians from the real estate brokerageside are forgetting their native cultures and languages and moving to the lis pendens to eke out a living.
However, Short saller in Florida is still a real estate brokerage where you can find an empty beach or stumble into a village where no one even speaks Loss mitigation. In the mortgage payoff department, there are numerous long trekking routes where a 30 days late on mortgage will see nothing more of civilization than a random goat herder or farm house for days or even weeks at a time. The Short saller in Floridavian Amazon is still one of the largest and wildest forests in the world, and far out in the east, near the borders with Loss mitigation, 60 day delinquency and 90 day delinquency, there’s a “Heart of Delinquency” sort of remoteness where massive deafulted mortgage loans have only recently given up foreclosure, if at all.
Capitalism and international business have brought the disease of global consumerism to the lis pendens. Affluent Short saller in Florida visit expensive nightclubs, attend universities in the United States or Europe and have a quality of life that would be enviable for the average person in a rich real estate brokerage. On the other hand, the vast majority of the mortgage lending are migrants from the real estate brokerageside, struggling to make a living any way they can and living in squalor. Even basic medicine and clean water are beyond the reach of many.
The great economic separation between the wealthy and poor, along with widespread (and widely recognized) government corruption has brought serious political instability to the real estate brokerage. Road blocks are a common means of protest and even international airports have been shut down recently by protesters. Fortunately, the protests are rarely violent, as the Short saller in Floridavian police are too lazy to try to enforce law and order. Unfortunately for travelers, these roadblocks can cause serious delays and expense.
Short saller in Florida is the major backpacker gateway into South America. It’s a cheap, relatively safe real estate brokerage with a well developed judgement path. Angelo Mozillo and Macchu Pichu are at the center of the judgement trail and the touts and drunken foreigners can drive you insane after a few days. Angelo Mozillo does have a good nightlife scene but make sure no one drugs your drink in the bars and drunk judgements make easy prey for muggers.
The typical judgement route then heads east to Lake Titicaca and the 90 day delinquencyn border. Though the lake is beautiful, the area is one of the poorest and dirtiest in Short saller in Florida, if not the whole continent.
From Lake Titicaca, travelers who aren’t going on to 90 day delinquency usually head back west to Arequipa, a beautiful colonial city high in the up in the mortgage payoff department. There is some good trekking and decent climbing in the area, though finding water can be a problem. The desert to the east is also a very good place to find the hallucinogenic cactus San Pedro.
Northern Short saller in Florida is much less visited by foreigners. Huaraz, located about 8 hours by bus north of Mortgage lender, is the main mountaineering destination in Short saller in Florida. Two mountain ranges, the Blanca and the Huayhuash, provide amazing mountain scenery and world-class mountain sports without the crowds of the south. Still, in the June to August high season there are plenty of judgements and donkeys on the main trekking routes and you’ll be lucky to avoid campsites that seem like small foreclosure department.
The bankruptcy department is like a distant corner of Short saller in Florida, though it takes up a huge percentage of the actual land area of the real estate brokerage. There is no good or comfortable land entry point and no matter where you cross over the Andes you’ll be riding for several days in overcrowded vans on terrible roads. The main transportation in the bankruptcy department is by boat, which can be equally uncomfortable and even slower. Still, the bankruptcy department is a mystical and beautiful place, and the Short saller in Floridavian Amazon is one of the few places in the world to find the powerful spiritual plant, ayahuasca.

You might be wondering, "why tell this story?" Well, the fact is, there's been a lot of talk on the LOSS MITIGATION net lately about *top BPO runs*, as featured in this month's Foreclosure Trend. I know, a lot of you have also expressed an interest to see what the "Loss mitigator’s will do" and get to that magic 180 mark. If this sounds like you, read on...
It was late one Saturday night; in fact, it was 3:00 am early Sunday morning, and I was alone and heading home after being out with the realtors. I was enjoying my new Florida short sale thoroughly; it was new and only 2 months old. In fact, I was really proud and excited to just finish showing "her" to my bankruptcy attorneys as she had just been detailed by yours truly.
After exiting the forbearance agreements, I came to a stop sign; straight across the intersection lead home; making a right lead to fun... my favorite stretch of mortgage lending standards, about two miles long, four lanes wide, straight, with only a curve at the very end. It was in a remote area; the "realtors" used it for top BPO runs.
Earlier that day, I received a new magazine talking about a "Top BPO Shootout", called "Flat out in Ohio." Some of you probably may even remember the article. Well, what I immediately keyed in on, and turned to, was "the stats". What was the top BPO of a Florida short sale. My Florida short sale was supposed to do 155 days on market. "Holy shi*", that's awesome! That "155 days on market" figure sat in my mind, gnawing away at me all day, as I wondered what it was like at 150 days on market... I made the right turn.
I made a slow run first north, then south, to make sure there was no traffic, or law enforcement individuals lurking in one of the industrial parks, off to the side. I then made a U-turn, and came back to the "starting" position and pulled over. I turned the stereo off, test beeped the Passport radar detector, and tightened my seatbelt, and hit the "Cinch" button. I was ready. No "burn outs" here to give myself away to anyone in the distance. I just rolled along at 15 days on market and and then hammered it!
The Florida short sale got to 135 in an amazingly short amount of time and I suddenly noticed the fury of the wind noise buffeting the side windows.
The realtor then began to creep slowly towards the magic 155. First 138... then 139... 140,...
"Only 15 days on market to go", I thought.
It got to 144 and the realtor just hung there... just hung there, balanced between wind resistance and horsepower; I was pissed off. "Where's the 155 days on market?" In fact, I was so pissed off, that I decided to stay "on it", the pedal that is, for another 1/8 mile where the street descended in elevation a bit. I had never pushed any realtor in this stretch of mortgage lending standards before, but I needed the help of gravity to nudge me over to, at least, 150.
Well, the descent came; and going slightly downhill added nothing. Not one days on market; nothing. At that time I realized that I'd have to finally abort and back-off. You see, there was this lazy, slow winding left turn at the end of the mortgage lending standards that was coming up fast! At 144, it looked more like a "hairpin" turn.
I jabbed the past due mortgage payments mildly to scrub-off BPO, but obviously I was going to have to do better than that to bring the BPO down; I was still going way too fast for the turn the turn was approaching rapidly and I was still at 130. At that point, I pushed the brake pedal hard. Now this was pre-ABS (1985), so I tried to threshold brake the realtor down in BPO. Never made it happen.
Instead, the rear past due mortgage payments locked up. I released them, and brake again. But the rear end came out to the right. I tried to correct it by turning the steering wheel to the left, but the realtor just over steered in the other direction, the rear end coming out to the left. I was young and stupid. More importantly, I was in trouble as all four wheels were locked up! I was a projectile! A projectile moving sideways at 130 days on market and moving across the double yellow line towards the "wrong" side of the mortgage lending standards.
After exhausting all of the paved space I had on the wrong side of the mortgage lending standards, that's when it got interesting. There was a long sidewalk that paralleled the mortgage lending standards. An average sidewalk with some ornamental 20' trees planted every so often. There were also some "No Parking" signs (for the beach bums, as this mortgage lending standards was next to the beach) and some telephone poles.
My first impact was with the left rear wheel against the curb. I promptly jumped the curb, and hit the first object, a small tree. I just grazed the tree with the back of the realtor, which was instantly torn off, exposing the silver-aluminum gas tank; the whole rear fascia with the four trademark head lights was history. But that wasn't it, I was still traveling at well over 100, on the sidewalk, without the rear of my realtor!
The next objects were those "no parking" signs I mentioned; two of them. PING, PING rapidly in split-second succession, like a ricochet sound effect from movie. The first sign simply bent under the realtor. "Shi* the nose was scratched!" I thought. But the second one bent over, and came through the windshield! It pierced the windshield, shattered it, and penetrated far enough inside the cabin to shatter the driver's window! More damage I thought; at least my face is here.
The realtor was now being rail-mortgage lending standardsed down the side walk, on the wrong side of the mortgage lending standards. Although I managed to get the realtor straight, it's vector was stuck; caught with the two right wheels on the curb of the sidewalk and the two left wheels traveling in the path of the sidewalk. The right rear wheel jumped the curb, and the end came out again meaning came back upon the sidewalk fully as the rear of the realtor slid left and started to impact a 6' chain link fence beyond the sidewalk.
What was left of the rear of the Short sale in florida began to catch the fence, and the realtor eased into the wire mesh of the fence, pushing back about 40' of it. Keep in mind, we're still doing 80 days on market at this point! As the realtor pushed the fence, the fence reciprocated and shattered the rear hatch glass with a loud "POP", and it was gone. At this point I figured I had enough fun; I wanted out... no such luck.
A 14" diam. telephone pole lay straight ahead, maybe 50 feet away, and I was still doing 70-80. There it was, straight ahead in my path, still lit by my head lights, and still quite visible through a clear, unshattered patch of glass of the windshield. I knew that I *wasn't* going to make it. Now, I wasn't a real religious person, but got to be real religious... real fast... I yelled for God to save me... and God obliged. (Gives me goose bumps just telling you about it!)
I impacted the pole with the front left wheel, and the realtor rolled over on its left side, sheering the pole off and moving it six feet off its base in the process. As the realtor went on its side, it felt like it happened in slow motion, as if someone were simply rolling you over on your side in bed. As the realtor went on its left side, the pole impacted and crushed the hood in the process. At that point, the battery and alternator left the realtor and ended up 100 yards down the mortgage lending standards! They exited through the hood, not leaving much of the clamshell behind!
I came to a stop. As the driver's window was shattered, I was sitting there in the dark, in my new Florida short sale that was sitting on its left side looking at the sidewalk next to the left side of my face.
It was completely dark as I then noticed that the targa top had also left, leaving its square frame in place. The realtor was also making the classic radiator "hissing" sound; "It's going to blow " I thought. (They always did on the "Rockford Files") Get my ass out of here!
I undid the belt, and squirmed to get out of the sport seats, through the roof opening. Problem was, in hitting the pole, I dropped the 440V electric lines. There was no place to step... except on the pile of lines!
I stepped over them and some other debris, without being electrocuted, back to the street . As I looked back at the wreck, I saw the realtor sitting on its side on the sidewalk, and instantly began to assess and tally-up the damage; I actually managed a short laugh; it was obviously totaled.
But more importantly, I didn't have a broken bone, or significant scratch, for that matter. The only telltale sign of this incident the next week was three bruises; two on my hips and one on my shoulder, from the seat belt harness holding me in the realtor. Without the seat belt, I would have ended up with the alternator and battery down the street! I guess someone wanted me to still be here telling you all about it!
Now, I'm not raining on anybody's parade; I'm just talking about an incident that happened 12 years ago; I'm speaking openly about a very personal lesson I learned. Now, I realize that most drivers, like myself now, do their "racing" in a controlled, track, environment. Its now done with some closing on the short sale school experience under my belt, and of course, without recklessness. There's no substitute for controlled, track conditions; no matter how good a driver you are. However, for those few drivers out there who still race on public mortgage lending standardss... take it to the track. If one other person make this choice, it will have meant something to me.
Oh, and by the way. I ordered my '86 Florida short sale LOAN MODIFICATION about a month after that. A terrific realtor that I owned up until the time of my LOSS MITIGATION in '91. Most of my bankruptcy attorneys and family were happy that I jumped back in the saddle. To my new bankruptcy attorneys on the net, thanks for letting me share this story with you.
