A Valuable Tool For Florida Homeowners
With all the problems in the real estate and mortgage industries, many new scams seem to be traveling around the internet, as well as through direct mail and telemarketing. The one that has raised the awareness of the State of Florida concerns organizations that promote themselves as mortgage rescue specialists. While many of these law firms and mortgage companies are reputable, there are a great number of them in which you should be wary.
A valuable tool for Florida homeowners was recently developed by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum. His new website, http://myfloridalegal.com/mortgagefraud, provides consumers with easy access to current investigations, complaint forms, and tips to identify and avoid foreclosure rescue fraud.
Foreclosure Rescue Fraud Is Top Complaint
Foreclosure rescue fraud, or fraud involving loan modifications related to foreclosures, is the complaint topic most commonly reported to the Attorney General's Office and involves the charging of an up-front fee for foreclosure rescue services before any services are provided, if they are provided at all.
On the mortgage fraud website, consumers can access a list of investigations being conducted by the Attorney General's Mortgage Fraud Task Force to see if a particular company is currently being scrutinized. They can also obtain information about active litigation and can download affidavit forms to fill out if they have been victimized by one of the listed companies.
In the current economy, consumers can use all the help they can get to protect themselves from scammers. I encourage you to check out this beneficial website.

Joe Wrote The Book On How To Sell A Home Today
WARNING: The Internet & digital marketing systems have changed the way sellers need to market a home for sale. It's not about getting a home sold anymore, it's about getting a home sold and netting the most money from the sale.
To do this, a seller needs to hit the digital market hard in a coordinated effort that alerts ready-buyers (all at the same time) to ensure buyers understand they are competing for the right to buy the home.
While it only takes ONE buyer to sell a home, it takes MULTIPLE BUYERS for the seller to bid the property up to its highest value in today's market. You see our full explanation about how to sell a house here, or you can buy the book and really get into the nuts and bolts of selling a home in the digital age.
Get the book that explains it all, in a manner that is understanding to all, even technology neophytes. It's available on Amazon, a trusted source for consumers.
