The President says everyone should.... within reason, be given the opportunity to stay in their Home and avoid foreclosure and eviction. Watch this Short video to provide you with some insight on how the cards maybe stacked against the loan modification process and understand how the banks are making more money on real estate Foreclosures.  Its no wonder why it is so difficult to get their lender to lower their mortgage payment or interest rate.  

This short video will provide you with a little insight and perhaps something you should write your Washington representative about.  Please forward this to anyone you know who might be looking for help either with a short sale or interest in the foreclosure process.  

We have many additional resources available on our website here for Ann Arbor Short Sale Information and I am always available to confidential advice.  Also try this short sale web site

Too much snow on Roof & Ice Dam Ceiling leak

by Tom Stachler,ABR,CDPE - Group One Realty Team

The more insulation we put into our attics, the less heat is lost and the snow on your roof can remain longer.  Sunny days can heat up darker shingles to help melt snow, but this can lead to ice dam problems and ceiling leaks too.  

With all the snow we have had this year, you might want to be proactive with winter roof care.  Get a roof snow scraper or rake/blade to pull some of the snow off your roof.  This is especially important in areas that might backup near flashings and then leak inside our Home.  

Check out this link to get more information on this topic.  The conditions are right for more of this to happen.  Of course, if you know someone looking for real estate services, please give them the URL of this website to get started.  

Have a great day!
