Preventing and Avoiding Real Estate Problems
For many people, solving problems ranks right up there with going to the dentist and negotiating with bankers as something to avoid at all costs. This common tendency would actually not be such a critical issue if these same individuals would obtain expert assistance to help them prevent or solve problems. When the focus turns to real estate problems, a special "wild card" element is added to the equation: Banks.
While it might be an oversimplification to say that all real estate problems would be solved if the "Bank Real Estate Financing Crisis" did not exist, most individuals and small business owners would happily settle for the more preventable and solvable real estate problems which would be left on the plate after bank real estate loans are removed as an ongoing and challenging obstacle. A representative sample of the primary mortgage financing questions currently being asked by small businesses will provide some insight into the critical role played by banks when we are addressing both residential and commercial real estate problems:
- What should I do when my banker says no?
- What are banks doing with their money?
- When should I fire my bank?
- What are "Zombie Banks"?
- Is my bank a "Zombie Bank"?
- Are banks the solution or the problem?
- Which banks should be avoided?
- What are my realistic alternatives?
Asking the "right questions" is a major component of an effective problem-solving process. The eight questions summarized above are excellent examples of the questions that individuals and small businesses should be asking in their efforts to prevent or solve the real estate problems which they are currently facing.
