Relocate to Wisconsin : We are Radio Stars....Thank you Active Rain !

We are Radio Stars....Thank you Active Rain !

   If anyone questions if their blogs are blown intBlowingo cyberspace, never to be heard from/of  again....Today was living broadcast proof...that is not the case !  

 Microphone   The phone rang and it was a reporter for Milwaukee Public Radio who had read our blog on Boomerang Buyers.   For anyone who missed this blog or is unfamiliar with the term...Boomerang Buyers are people who have been thru a Short Sale, A foreclosure or bankruptcy and are ready to return ot the market as homeowners.

     A short sale can happen to people thru no fault of their own....a divorce, a death, unemployment followed by under employment...a military relocation that could not "forecast" the downturn of the housing market.  short sale

 Boomerang   The Reporter wanted to know...what our experience was with Boomerang did we help them return to the market as homeowners.  We explained that there are lenders that offer "in house" mortgages that are not backed by the federal government and not tied to prohibitive regulations...who look at this group of Buyers as individuals who deserve a second chance at becoming home owners.  Maybe that house that was $500,000 with two incomes is not affordable....but one for $250,000 is with one income or a lesser paying job.

    "It's a story that needs to be told," the reporter said.  We think so too !  An unfortunate situation that caused financial hardship need not define for a need not define you at all !   We are pleased to talk with anyone who has expStoryerienced financial hardship and have them return to once again capture the American Dream and make it their own.  

    She asked us to talk with people we have helped with their new start....she wants to add them to her interview list and let people know the opportunity that they may have to start over that they may not know about if they have only contacted traditional lending sources. We are calling, texting and emailing our  courageous Boomerang buyers to see if they will share their stories.Star

        We are glad to is not a hand out...but a hand UP to people who so deserve thru their own perseverance begin again...THEY are the the re-make of their own story....that has a happily ever after ending.

    If you or anyone you know wants their second chance at homeownership.....Call us....we are honored to be of assistance for all things real estate.

Great job spreading the news, no matter how it gets out to the public.
