New Mexico Home Foreclosure is Final

New Mexico home no more… The original foreclosure sale was rescheduled due to a fairly rare snowstorm. I was happy to get extra time to get the short sale approved. The lender wasn’t willing to talk to us though. So the home went up for sale at the foreclosure auction yesterday. Today I found out […]

Larchmont Foreclosure Sold at $199K after Failed Short Sale

See the provided MLS screenshot. I lost the Larchmont property to foreclosure on February 27th, 2007. […]

Facing Foreclosure As Seen on TV and San Francisco Chronicle

Here is some media coverage of “I am Facing Foreclosure .com” from last week. Both the TV and the newspaper coverage is a good recap of my story – for those who haven’t read the rest of the blog yet. First, San Francisco KRON Chanel 4. Thanks to Maureen Kelly for coming out to Sacramento […]

From the “Publisher” of Casey’s Foreclosure Book…

[Begin guest post from the “Publisher”] Warning: this will be a lengthy post, but will answer many questions people are dying to know. In light of Casey shutting down his blog, turning it back on, his last several posts and people’s comments, the need for many clarifications are apparent. Casey had asked me to create […]

Dallas Finally in Escrow… I Think

Wow… this took a lot of back-n-forth but I finally have a cash buyer for the Angleridge Dallas property. It went into escrow today, but there are still a couple of issues. I will have to tell you the history on this deal another day – why I bought it, what went wrong, how I […]

Motley Fool: Greed Makes You Stupid

Here is an article about me in Motley Fool from about two weeks ago. It was written right after I took the blog down for a couple of days. I just recently found the article and want to re-post it here. I think it’s pretty interesting. The author thinks I am just greedy flipper. 24 […]

No Judging! Just Surviving and Helpin’

I did some thinking and realized that I’m getting side-tracked. My original goal was to: 1) Write about my experience facing foreclosure and how I am dealing with it and… 2) Help Over-Extended Borrowers – tips on how to stop foreclosure, save the home or sell it fast, decide when to file bankruptcy, getting out […]

Casey Serin / Foreclosure Mention in Stern (German)

I was mentioned in Stern, a German magazine. The reporter that interviewed me sent me a copy. I got it a few days ago and wanted to share it here. [The reporter sent me a package with Stern and two accompanying publications, see above. One looks like a TV guide.] The problem is I can’t […]

All You Have to Do Is Ask. Sweet!

Wow… I’m blown away! What a blessing! After last post and the email blast to my mailing list I received an overwhelming positive response! I already had like 700 emails to process, now I’m going to have several hundred more to go through. But there is gold in my inbox… so it’s all good! Sweet […]

Casey Serin Facing Foreclosure on Wikipedia – a Defense

I’ve been watching the Casey Serin entry in Wikipedia get written over the last couple of months. It’s obviously written by my critics but they say they are trying to keep an “encyclopedic tone” (see the discussion tab). The problem I have is that the entry is highly skewed toward making me look bad. So […]

That’s because my Google AdSense account was disabled yesterday for violating the terms of service: Hello Casey Serin, It has come to our attention that invalid clicks and/or impressions have been generated on the Google ads on your site(s). We have therefore disabled […]

#6 Foreclosure Search on Google, Talking Foreclosure Book

And it’s organic! Don’t have to pay a penny (dirty or not). Now I just have to do something good with it. Like figure out if people are looking for how to stop foreclosure, or to research foreclosure process/laws or to buy foreclosures. Probably a mixture of all of those. So the demand is there. […]
